Fighting Slavery, One Dress At A Time

Slavery was abolished in the United States in 1865. We fought a war to end the cruelty of this institution, but few of us know that more people are enslaved today than at the height of the transatlantic slave trade. Modern day slavery is real. In fact, it’s more aggressive

Donald Trump vs. Cologne Deniers: The Price of Political Correctness

There’s a link between Donald Trump and the New Year’s Eve Cologne attacks. The New Year began in ugly fashion at the train station in Cologne, Germany. At least 100 German women were groped and raped. Der Spiegel wrote about “… drunk young men from North Africa who formed gangs

From Small Beginnings

From small beginnings come grand results: consider the acorn and the oak. Once in a while we come across an article that evokes the writing of early, maternal feminist Lydia Sigourney. We’ve excerpted her book, Letters to Young Ladies, many  times. Recently we saw a great blog post by Naomi

“Pursue no woman to her tears.” I found these lovely words in a poem called The Honor Men by James Hay, Jr. More about that below. Today’s pervasive global culture is largely misogynist: men act like brutes and women are driven to tears. For the most part, life in every

But what is the most important thing Americans have done? What has led to the great flourishing of this nation? De Tocqueville concludes it is

American Women and the Power of Domestic Life

As we continue exploring the strength of American women (see part 1 and part 2) we note that de Tocqueville regarded their role in domestic life as an indication of nobility. As for myself, I do not hesitate to avow that, although the women of the United States are confined within the

Are American Women Superior?

Our desire in this short blog series (go here for part 1) is to examine the higher elevation of American women than women in other nations. We seek to do this through commenting on some of the observations of the French historian, Alexis de Tocqueville, and his American contemporary, maternal feminist
