Today marks two years since the Women's March on Washington (and other cities). The streets were packed with singing, cheering and peaceful marchers. One of the most empowering (and entertaining) aspects of the demonstration were the feminist signs held high and proud by marchers. Here's a look at some of the best ones from 2017. // 📸: @damondahlen and @lannadelgrey
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced Monday that she will be running for president in 2020. Her campaign released a short video: “I love my country. This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are.” She added: “My entire career has been focused on keeping people safe. It is probably one of the things that motivates me more than anything else. And when I look at this moment in time, I know that the American people deserve to have someone who is going to fight for them.” // 📸: Getty Images
Today we honor civil rights activist and hero, Martin Luther King., Jr. 🇺🇸 This quote comes from his acceptance speech when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964: "I think Alfred Nobel would know what I mean when I say that I accept this award in the spirit of a curator of some precious heirloom which he holds in trust for its true owners — all those to whom beauty is truth and truth beauty — and in whose eyes the beauty of genuine brotherhood and peace is more precious than diamonds or silver or gold." // #MLKDay // 📸: Getty Images
Margot Robbie does not have time for unsolicited questions about her uterus. It seems “Mary Queen of Scots” star can really relate to her character in the movie, Queen Elizabeth I — a 16th-century monarch who famously did not conceive an heir, which creates a major point of contention in the film. While speaking to Radio Times on Tuesday, the 28-year-old actress, who married British director Tom Ackerley two years ago, points out how society’s pressure on women to have children hasn’t changed much in approaching 500 years. “I got married, and the first question in almost every interview is, ‘Babies? When are you having one?’ I’m so angry that there’s this social contract,” Robbie told Radio Times. “You’re married, now have a baby. Don’t presume. I’ll do what I’m going to do.”
She added: “Only women get asked that when they get married. Men don’t.” So, there you have it everyone: Don’t ask women — married or not — when they’re going to have kids. // 📸: Getty Images
Amid President Trump’s refusal to denounce Rep. Steve King’s (R-Iowa) racist remarks on white supremacy, CNN’s Don Lemon warned that passivity could brew violence. “It is personal and even deadly to people like me,” the cable host said to his colleague Chris Cuomo. Frustrated that Trump’s blatant acceptance of discriminatory attitudes wasn’t enough to make his voters think twice before casting their ballots, Lemon cautioned that “what we ignore, we empower.” “This president has said and done so many insensitive and bigoted and racist things that if you support him, people like me want to understand why you ignored so much in order to support this man,” he said. “You may not think you are a racist ... but you certainly had to overlook racism and bigotry in order to make that decision.” On his own broadcast earlier that evening, Cuomo told former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a contributor on the network, that he has “so many people” in his life who voted for and support Trump, yet “they’re not bigots” and “they don’t believe in what Steve King says.” Lemon didn’t appear to be satisfied with Cuomo’s defense of his friends, expressing outrage over their ability to justify their alignment with Trump. “Now even after all of this, if you still in your mind can support this person, why the hell are you overlooking racism so much?” he asked of the president’s supporters. // 📸: Getty Images
You’d think former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker would understand tax policy.
Of course, you’d also think he’d know better than try to beat freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Twitter.
Walker failed on both counts Tuesday when he tweeted a smarmy attempt to criticize the congresswoman’s proposal for a 70 percent marginal tax rate on annual earnings above $10 million to fund a Green New Deal and fight climate change.
Under her plan, the majority of Americans, who don’t earn that much, would pay a much lower share of their income, and the average tax rate for working Americans could go down.
But not the way Walker explained it: "Explaining tax rates before Reagan to 5th graders: “Imagine if you did chores for your grandma and she gave you $10. When you got home, your parents took $7 from you.” The students said: “That’s not fair!” Even 5th graders get it," he wrote on Twitter.
Luckily, Ocasio-Cortez sprang into action, schooling the recently ousted governor that his analogy was completely wrong and proving that her Twitter game remains supreme. 📸: Getty Images
Serena Williams and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, are the definition of couple goals.
But prior to meeting her now-husband, the tennis great received some wonderful words of relationship wisdom from the guru of advice ― Oprah herself. “Oprah said, ‘Never let anyone dim your light.’ That really stuck with me. Alexis doesn’t dim my light,” Williams said in an interview for the cover of Allure’s February 2019 issue. “He doesn’t try to dim my light. He puts me in the light, even if I don’t want to be,” she said. “He pushes me to further points I never thought about. It always was something that I could see in some relationships — my light would be dimmer. Now I feel like I can shine really bright and still do everything that I want to do.” // 📸: Getty Images
