Climate Change – An ‘Urgent Human Health Issue’

Kaiser Permanente is the leading health care sponsor of this week’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, and CEO Bernard J. Tyson addressed the conference Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, during a session called, “Healthy Planet, Healthy People.”  Tyson discussed Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2020 — and how we are already on our way at 30 percent of that goal.

Addressing the link between climate change and health requires collaboration across health and hospital systems and key partner organizations. At Tyson’s GCAS session, he  shared this video, which illustrates the health risks attributed to climate change, and how organizations are coming together to address this as a matter of population health.

‘Vogue’ Honors Virgil Abloh, Demna Gvasalia and Gosha Rubchinskiy in September 2018 Issue

Though the Beyoncé-starring cover story may be the biggest draw for Vogue‘s September 2018 issue, the magazine also includes a feature saluting a dozen boundary-breaking designers from around the globe. Virgil Abloh is the sole male American designer, with European stars like Gosha Rubchinskiy, Demna Gvasalia, Riccardo Tisci and Hedi Slimane making up the majority of the list and UNDERCOVER‘s Jun Takahashi representing Japan.

The interviews touch on themes like globalism and international travel, with each designer offering a different take. Some are political: “Everybody today talks about war, refugees, and I am like, yes—I know exactly what that means.” notes Gvasalia, while Nicolas Ghesquière states, “We’re all concerned about diversity—more than just in fashion shows. In terms of actions and associations and organizations around the world, Louis Vuitton can do more.” Others reference their global gallavanting: Karl Lagerfeld, creative director for Chanel, Fendi and his eponymous label affirms, “I have so much to do that I’m not so much for traveling anymore.”

Meanwhile, Slimane notes his diminishing appreciation for Los Angeles: “I’m always attached to the idea of California, but recently less so to the city of Los Angeles. I don’t feel comfortable with the evolution over the last few years … Something untouched, mysterious, and magical has gone. … It has definitely moved my focus toward Paris.” Of all the interviewees, Virgil Abloh offers perhaps the most optimistic viewpoint on global communities: “Young people in every city that I go to are loving life and actively participating in it. I am shocked at how open-minded young people of different cultures are compared to the presiding older generations.

Read the entire feature on Vogue‘s site.

Recently, it was confirmed that Anna Wintour will remain with Condé Nast as Vogue‘s editor-in-chief & artistic director.

Domestic Violence Is a Workplace and Economic Issue [Opinion]

When I saw the image furiously circulating on the internet of former White House staff secretary Rob Porter’s ex-wife Colbie Holderness’ black eye she says resulted from Porter hitting her, I got angry and then sick. Domestic violence needs to be part of the #metoo conversation.

 

(Image: Twitter)

Unfortunately, there are immature, out-of-control, disturbed, and angry people committing violence against their domestic partner. I’m somewhat ashamed to say, I was in two back-to-back abusive relationships for far too long. Not only did remaining in these toxic situations tax me emotionally and physically, they cost me a job and also sent me tumbling down an economic hole toward poverty.

A tense, ugly relationship with many blood-red flags that couldn’t have been more obvious; the violence in the first of these relationships culminated after a particularly brutal argument. This man, twice my weight and height, grabbed me; smashed my head into a bathroom tile; dragged me across the floor; down some stairs; and tried to smother me with a pillow. He didn’t let up until I was just beginning to black out.

You think I would have left after that, right? Wrong. I did call the police, who had been out to our residence before after other incidents. During the call, I suddenly decided to not press charges. The officer on the other line said, “OK. Next time we’re out there we’ll probably be removing you in a body bag. ‘Bye!”

After I finally woke up and left, I headed straight into another poisonous adventure with an alcoholic who got violent when drunk. Life with such as individual is, unsurprisingly, extremely detrimental to work performance. I was in a job I had been successful at for half a decade and I became so emotionally drained, anxious, and so fraught with rage that issues that I would have handled well otherwise, I handled terribly and was given the pink slip.

Having broken up with the alcoholic—who did contribute financially to the household, with no job, and not much freelance work to be had; the bills piled up. I was threatened with eviction. My credit was nearing a negative number.

Black Women Are Especially Vulnerable in Domestic Violence Situations

Domestic violence didn’t just leave me emotionally and physically battered. My career and my finances were wrecked.

DomesticShelters.org compiled data on how disastrous physical abuse is to a woman’s livelihood and money. From the site: “Victims of intimate partner violence lost almost 8 million days of paid work because of the violence perpetrated against them. This loss is the equivalent of more than 32,000 full-time jobs and almost 5.6 million days of household productivity as a result of violence.”

Also, the Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence found that 64% of women said their work was affected by their abuse. They cited feeling distracted and a loss in work productivity as well as missed days—all as consequences of partner violence.

And African American women are victimized by domestic partners at a 35% higher rate than white women. Black women are also more likely to be killed by a partner.

As black women, we are used to striving; after all, we are making gains in the workplace and are among the most educated demographic in the country. “We got this,” is a phrase we love to use to self-motivate ourselves and our sisters.

But, when it comes to a domestic violence situation and not ending the abuse as soon as possible: Girl, you don’t got this. If you are in the same situation that I was, get out, get assistance, and reclaim your life. I finally did and emerged stronger in my profession, my finances, and as a person.

Black Leaders Issue Strong Reactions to Trump’s State of the Union Address

On Tuesday night, President Trump addressed the nation in his first State of the Union address. In his 80-minute speech, he pushed the Republican, “American First” agenda, and touched on subjects including immigration; the low rate of African American unemployment; and his self-described “massive tax cuts” policy.

While political analysts, including those at The Washington Post, observed that the President, on a surface level, tried to make the speech one of bipartisanship and unity; there were moments where Trump veered into right-wing talking points. After honoring a child, Preston Sharp, who was there at the president’s invitation, for his work at decorating fallen soldiers’ graves with flags, the president took a not-at-all thinly veiled swipe at Colin Kaepernick and other #TakeAKnee protesters.

“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us of why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem,” said Trump.

After the speech, several black leaders offered their reactions:

Kristen Clarke, President and Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law:

Once again, President Trump missed an opportunity to unify the country with his polarizing and divisive speech. From subtle digs at peaceful demonstrators who are speaking out against racial injustice and police shootings, to the failure to recognize the spike in hate crimes across the country to the silence on issues such as voter suppression, the President’s speech was tone deaf to the core concerns of African Americans and other minority communities. While the President referenced concern regarding prison reform, the reality is that under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, this administration has reignited the War on Drugs and brought criminal justice reform to a grinding halt. Moreover, his racially-coded language smearing immigrant communities and unreasonable policy proposals for DACA recipients awaiting a path to citizenship stands to set back bipartisan efforts to achieve immigration reform.

Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04): 

This evening, as I sat in the well of the House of Representatives during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, I listened to him boast about his administration’s “incredible progress” and “extraordinary success.”

“The state of our union is strong because our people are strong,” said the president.

He’s right. The state of our union is indeed strong, as are the people who call it home. And despite what my Democratic colleagues might think, I do believe President Trump deserves credit as well — just not for the reasons he thinks.

The president’s first year in office has been tumultuous to say the least. Most of his administration’s legislative goals have been mired by self-sabotage; his mental fitness and moral clarity have been questioned by both parties; special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation haunts the White House at every turn; and President Trump’s vulgar anti-immigrant comments have sent shockwaves across the globe. However, these shameful transgressions have done more to unify our country than any policy the Trump administration claims to have championed during its short tenure.

Take, for example, the president’s efforts to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals: After making clear his intention to scrap protections for approximately 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to our country as children, faith communities across America stood up to take action. Recently, dozens of rabbis and Jewish clergy members staged a sit-in under the Russell Senate Office Building rotunda to protest the president’s efforts. They called for the passage of the DREAM Act, a bipartisan bill that would provide a path to citizenship for those with DACA or Temporary Protected Status.

A total of 82 people were arrested and escorted off the premises in handcuffs.

“Welcoming the stranger is an important part of our identity,” said Barbra Weinstein, Associate Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, one of the groups that organized the protest. “We are all descendants of immigrants. It’s on all of us to support these DREAMers. They grew up here, this is the only country they’ve ever known, many of them serve in the military, this is their home.”

Even conservatives deep in the heart of Trump country have made the decision to rise above the president’s anti-immigrant agenda. Residents of Volusia, Fla., where President Trump received 54 percent of the vote in 2016, recently elected Michael Chitwood — a progressive reformer with a strong pro-immigrant outlook — to serve as county sheriff. Sheriff Chitwood isn’t your typical red-state law enforcement official: He’s ordered his deputies to reject the racial-profiling tactics supported by the Trump Justice Department and has even lobbied Congress to find a solution to protect our DREAMers.

During tonight’s speech, the president echoed Sheriff Chitwood’s sentiments, taking a break from his usual caustic, anti-immigrant rhetoric to express optimism in finding a bipartisan compromise on DACA. “It is time to reform these outdated immigration rules, and finally bring our immigration system into the 21st century,” said the president.

As lovely as that sounds, the validity of such a sentiment quickly degrades against the backdrop of reality. Let’s not forget that just weeks ago, in the vilest of manners, the president turned his back on a proposed bipartisan Senate immigration compromise. “Why do we want all these people from shithole countries coming here?” President Trump asked a group of senators in the Oval Office.

Ignorant viewpoints like that and the president’s corresponding policies have helped spur a surge of opposition at the ballot box, from support for candidates like state Delegate Danica Roem, D-Va., and Senator Doug Jones, D-Ala., to ordinary Americans running for office and taking matters into their own hands. And I’m proud to report that women are at the very tip of the spear.

Women across the country have united in an unprecedented wave of first-time candidates taking to the campaign trail. In the last year, more than 26,000 women have contacted Emily’s List — the largest national resource for women in politics — about getting involved in public service. (I also turned to Emily’s List during my first bid for Congress in 2004, and I continue to work with them today.)

The administration’s intolerance, however, isn’t the only factor that has inspired everyday Americans to take a stand. In fact, many of the country’s most vulnerable joined forces against the president to oppose what is now considered his administration’s only major legislative achievement to speak of —the Republican tax plan.

Last December, as members of Congress debated the plan, those representing America’s disabled converged on the capitol in droves to sound the alarm over the dangerous impact the Republican proposal would have on Medicaid. With a clear understanding that the tax plan would add $ 1.5 trillion to the national debt, disability rights activist knew Republicans would target programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security, as a means to offset the price tag.

Devastating cuts to these vital programs — $ 1 trillion from Medicaid and $ 500 billion from Medicare — is nothing short of a death sentence for Americans with disabilities. It was with this in mind that activists of all ages from across the political spectrum (some connected to ventilators) literally threw their bodies in front of the president’s agenda. They hoisted themselves out of their wheelchairs onto the floor of the Rayburn House Office Building and pleaded with their elected representatives to reverse course. It was a striking display of heroism that I will not soon forget.

Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” I believe the same could be said for our country.

And in the face of an administration determined to vilify immigrants, ignore women, belittle communities of color, and put the desires of the wealthy before the needs of the vulnerable, courageous acts of defiance have only strengthened our collective resolve. In spite of President Trump and his administration, the state of our union has never been stronger.

Dennis Rodman Enters Rehab for ‘His Issue with Alcohol’ After DUI Arrest in California

Dennis Rodman has entered rehab after he was arrested Saturday night for DUI in Newport Beach, California.

Rodman’s agent, Dennis Prince, tells PEOPLE the decision was made by Rodman, saying, “Dennis decided it was time to get help for his issue with alcohol and finally get to the underlying root before it’s too late.”

Prince added he was “very proud and supportive” of Rodman and asked for “prayers and support at this time.”

According to TMZ, Rodman was pulled over for a traffic violation on Saturday at about 11 p.m. Rodman reportedly failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.

Rodman, a five-time NBA champion and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, was previously arrested for DUI in December 1999 in California. He pled guilty in that case, causing him to attend a three-month alcohol program and pay around $ 2,000 in fines, according to ABC News.

He previously checked into rehab in 2014. In 2016, he was charged with a hit-and-run for a wrong-way related crash on a Southern California freeway. He was also charged with driving across a dividing section and without a valid license, as well as giving police false information.

Rodman, 56, played 14 seasons in the NBA, spending the first seven years with the Pistons before two years with the Spurs followed by three seasons with the Bulls. He closed his career with short stints on the Lakers and then Mavericks. During his career, he made the All-Star game twice and made eight All-Defensive teams.

Newsflash: Funding Black Women Entrepreneurs Is A Social Justice Issue

LC Johnson is creating a space for black women entrepreneurs

LC Johnson chuckles whenever she thinks about the origins of her newest business venture.

The 29-year old blogger-turned-entrepreneur, wife, and new mom jokes that it all started with wine and Netflix.

“I moved to Columbus in 2015 and I had a hard time making friends. As an adult woman moving to a new place, I had no idea where to meet women I could drink wine and binge Netflix with one day, and brainstorm my business plan with the next.

“I kept looking for places I could go to meet other women of color, other than church and the beauty salon; places where I could hang out but also get work done.”

Eventually, Johnson realized that what she was looking for didn’t exist, and the idea for Zora’s House was born. Located in Columbus, Ohio, Zora’s House will cater specifically to women of color, which Johnson touts as a first.

Inspired By Black History

 

Johnson, who majored in Women’s Studies at Duke University, cites the enduring strength of the black women’s club movement—exemplified by sororities and historic organizations like The National Council of Negro Women—as her inspiration for creating a space for black women entrepreneurs.

 

(Under construction. Image: LC Johnson)

But her outlook regarding Zora’s House is firmly planted in the here and now, as well as the future.

“Women of color will be the majority of women by 2050, but many communities still haven’t figured out how to adequately support us,” Johnson says. “Programs geared toward ‘people of color’ often ignore the nuanced experiences of women of color, and programs for ‘women’ tend to be centered around whiteness.”

Zora’s House, named for Harlem Renaissance writer Zora Neale Hurston, bucks this trend by unabashedly offering networking events and workshops designed to help women of color explore strategies for cultivating healthy relationships, building confidence, and creating purpose-driven lives and careers.

As some began using the terms co-working and bro-working interchangeably, a wave of female-focused spaces opened, from The Riveter in Seattle to RISE Collaborative in St. Louis and The Wing in New York. Each has their own comfy-couch, pink-power, boss-woman vibe, and strong Wi-Fi. Slated to open in spring 2018, Zora’s House will have all of that too.

Young Black Women Entrepreneurs on the Rise, but Cash-strapped

 

While the trend of black women entrepreneurs starting businesses at stunning rates is not new, Johnson is part of a generation of high-achieving, ambitious women of color opting out of traditional work environments in their early-to-mid 20s. They are choosing to bet on themselves early rather than a corporate world where they believe the dual challenges of racism and sexism will limit their ability to advance. But trouble finding adequate funding threatens to stymie these women’s entrepreneurial progress as well.

“One of my main issues has definitely been getting the funding to open a physical space,” says Johnson, who has maintained a full-time job since coming up with the Zora’s House concept and anticipates continuing to work full time once the space opens out of financial necessity.

Johnson isn’t alone in her struggles. Despite being the most educated and enterprising group in the U.S., black women entrepreneurs receive less than 1% of VC funding. And outside of the tech space, entrepreneurs like Johnson face similar challenges acquiring loans and grants for high-potential small businesses.

Start Small, Dream Big

Funders who Johnson has approached so far, most of whom have been white men, have blatantly admitted to “not knowing the market for something like this” and been unwilling to invest.

“It’s frustrating,” says Johnson. “They don’t know the market, because they don’t care about the market.” So she launched a crowdfunding campaign. Her appeal to friends spoke directly to a larger issue. “I told them, people are watching me. People are watching us, waiting to see if products, experiences, and spaces centered around women of color are necessary, desired, and ‘fundable’ in our world today.”

Johnson, who serves as the director of Leadership and Social Justice Programs at her local YWCA, insists it’s not just a money issue. It’s a social justice issue.

“When we don’t fund black women-owned businesses, not only are we saying their ideas and desires are not good enough, but we are stunting their economic growth and keeping black women from making their full contributions to society,” she says.

Johnson’s goal is to eventually establish Zora’s Houses in communities across the country. The first is slated to open in early spring, 2018. Having raised more than $ 10,000 of her $ 15,000 crowdfunding goal, Johnson hopes to raise the remaining $ 5,000 in the last 48 hours of her campaign. The clock for Zora’s House, and entrepreneurs like Johnson, is ticking.

Behind the ‘zines: Lonely Planet Traveller’s September issue

A pile of Lonely Planet Traveller magazines

Getting ready to send our contributors copies of the new issue

The September issue of Lonely Planet Traveller magazine UK is hot off the press and packed with inspiration for late summer adventures. This month we reveal France’s best-kept secret spots, take a road trip through the Great Lakes, explore southeast Asia by boat and hunt down the coolest places in London. Take a look behind the scenes as we share stories and photography tips from a few of this month’s features.

Chicago, USA

Photographer Aubrie Pick explored Chicago, birthplace of the skyscraper, for our ultimate Great Lakes road trip.

‘I took this photo aboard the Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise as it made its way up the Chicago River. I loved the way the blue of the sky reflected in the glass of the skyscrapers, which then reflected in the water. It was a tricky shot, because being low in the water with the buildings so high ran the risk of parallax, an effect where objects appear to veer together. To counteract this, I tried not to shoot up and instead kept my camera level with the horizon.’

Voyaging through Laos on the mighty Mekong river, writer Oliver Berry watched the sun set over rice fields near the temple complex of Wat Phu.

‘Rice is a hugely important crop in Laos, and there are paddies all along the banks of the Mekong. We’d spent the afternoon at the temple and later got chatting to a local farmer and his family who were listening to Laotian pop music and relaxing in the evening sunshine. In the distance you can just make out a sacred mountain topped by a dome-shaped rock known as a linga, for local Buddhists and Hindus a holy symbol of Shiva.’

‘I love the glow of pride that radiates from this photo. Max smokes fish to a secret recipe in an arch near London Fields – so secret, in fact, that he explained to us apologetically that photography was strictly banned inside the smokehouse itself, in case it inadvertently betrayed his unique methods or recipe to any budding rivals! We didn’t mind: the brickwork right outside was the perfect backdrop to match the gritty railway arch theme of our feature.’

In this month’s photo story, Philip Lee Harvey focuses his lens on the unique timber architecture and seafaring traditions of Chiloé in Chilean Patagonia. He tells us how he got this shot of capital Castro:

Palafitos, or stilt houses, have become a symbol of Chiloé. Originally built as fisherman’s cottages and places to store the catch, many are now hotels and restaurants, as well as homes. The weather in Chiloe is extremely unpredictable and can change in seconds. On my third visit to this view, I got lucky – after a very wet day, the sun appeared. Minutes later the clouds returned and the scene lost its magic. Perseverance and luck – the basis of any photographic career’.

The Issue With Moms Popping Placenta Pills to Treat Postpartum Depression

The birth of a baby can bring on a multitude of emotions from joy and excitement to anxiety and fear. One that you might not expect is depression. To head things off at the pass, a growing number of mothers in the United States, in efforts to prevent postpartum depression, are eating their own placentas. Many are doing so in the form of placenta pills. The practice, known as human placentophagy, is an ancient Chinese tradition believed to prevent postpartum depression. This practice is also believed to have other health benefits such as increasing breast milk production, stabilizing hormones and boosting energy levels post childbirth.

What is Postpartum Depression?

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 11%-20% of women will experience postpartum depression (PPD) after childbirth. The symptoms of PPD  can be debilitating for these women. Symptoms last beyond 1-2 week postdelivery. And its onset can occur anytime during the first year after baby. Symptoms can include bursts of crying out of the blue for no reason, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, feelings of hopelessness, extreme sadness or irritation, being unable to concentrate, and not feeling like you’re bonding with your baby.

 

Why the Placenta?

 

The placenta is an organ that develops in the uterus during pregnancy. It provides oxygen and nutrients to the growing baby and removes waste products from the baby’s blood. Because it’s so instrumental for a baby in utero, it’s believed to be powerful and that eating it will have health benefits for the mother too.

But you may want to hold off—science is still out to lunch on this. There are no solid scientific studies that validate the proposed health benefits and there also hasn’t been anything to say it’s a bad thing, until now. It was found that ingesting placenta pills caused one Oregon baby to be infected with Group B streptococcus, according to a new report detailing the case that was published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Watch Nurse Alice on KTLA 5 News discuss what happened to one mom and baby duo affected by tainted placenta pills.

Safety and regulation of placenta preparation

 

Currently, no standards are established for the consumption of placentas. The practice is not regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration. Still, there are numerous companies and, what it’s termed in the community as “placenta arts specialists,” across the country that offer to encapsulate placentas. The placenta pill processing company in this particular case was not identified. However, according to the CDC, the company website said placentas are prepared by being cleaned, sliced and dehydrated at a range of 115 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s then ground up, formed into pills and stored at room temperature. The CDC hypothesized that it was likely that the placenta was not heated at a high enough temperature to kill the group B streptococcus bacteria that was found in the pills. The Association of Placenta Preparation Arts, a group for placenta preparers, issued a set of standards they believe all specialists should follow. The standards, including the temperature at which the placenta is processed, were not listed on the organization’s website, though they do recommend both food safety and blood-borne pathogens safety training for individuals who prepare the pills.

So if you or someone you know is contemplating on eating their placenta—proceed with extreme caution. Make sure you speak with your OB-GYN doctor prior to doing so to better understand the risks and to know whether it’s a safe option for you and your baby.

The Issue of Race Finally Explodes on ‘The Bachelorette’

Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay

In a clip that immediately started making news last week, The Bachelorette broke down in tears and said something black women all across the country could agree with: “you have no idea what it’s like being in this position.”

bachelorette Rachel Lindsay The Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay (Image: ABC)

 

If you’re not familiar with the world of first-impression roses, two-on-one dates, and fantasy suites, let me give you some background. Rachel Lindsay, a Dallas attorney, is the first black bachelorette in the 13-season history of the ABC series.

Before landing this historic gig, she was one of the final three women—and a fan favorite—on the previous season of The Bachelor with Nick Viall. The next season’s lead is usually picked from one of the previous runners-up, and the black contestants don’t usually get very far. After 21 seasons, we’re still waiting for the first black bachelor.

There are a number of think pieces about The Bachelor franchise, its lack of diversity, and its fraught relationship with race. And there are a lot of watchful eyes looking to see if Lindsay, and the most-diverse bunch of suitors ever, can change that.

You can count my two eyes among that bunch. I’ve been following both shows (and, yes, I’m ashamed to admit, Bachelor in Paradise—which had its own racially tinged scandal last week) for the last three years.

Like the rest of Bachelor Nation, I became a fast fan of Lindsay’s. I particularly appreciated how open she and Viall were, breaking the taboo in their conversations about race. I loved that on her hometown date she took him to a black church. And I wished all of America was watching when her family gently but firmly pushed back after Viall said he was colorblind with a reminder that though that may be true, the world is not, and that if he were to end up with their daughter he’d need to learn how to face that.

So for me it was a matter of when, not if, race would come up this season. And it didn’t take long. Just four weeks in, Lindsay was forced to acknowledge the pressure that comes with being the first black, or the only black, when there was a confrontation between two of her suitors and afterward the white man described the black man as “aggressive.”

I think her tears resonated with black women everywhere, who have often had to temper their emotions as they navigate the realities of constantly feeling judged as examples of their entire race and gender. How Lindsay ultimately deals is still to be seen—or, quite literally, to be continued—but it’s a conversation we’ll be having long after the final rose.

BEAUTY DEAL UPDATE:

Is Happiness A Feminist Issue?

In the American Declaration of Independence some of the most historic and lasting words are “all men are created equal” and that those are endowed the unalienable rights of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

But what about those two tiny, seemingly unassuming words? All men.

If all men have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it begs the question: What about a woman’s right to pursue all three, specifically happiness? Feminist writer and author Jill Filipovic explores just that in her new book The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit Of Happiness.

“What I was interested in exploring in the book is not just how do we make women equal to men in a system that men have built for themselves, but what does the female pursuit of happiness look like?” Filipovic told HuffPost. “If women were writing that founding document, what kind of system and institutions would we build around it to make that promise possible for women as well?” 

What I was interested in exploring in the book is not just how do we make women equal to men in a system that men have built for themselves, but what does the female pursuit of happiness look like?
Jill Filipovic

In the book, Filipovic explores the intersections of feminism and women’s happiness over the course of American history: Why were women, quite literally, written out of the history of happiness? How does the notion of “having it all” effect women’s happiness? Has feminism doomed us to be unhappy in our pursuit of equality? Is happiness, in fact, a feminist issue?

For that last one, Filipovic responded that happiness is “absolutely” a feminist issue. “What we’re trying to do is create a universe in which women can at least have the ability to pursue happiness,” she said, “if not the ability to actually be happy every day.”

Filipovic spoke with HuffPost to expand on that response and answer more questions about the intersections of happiness and feminism. What she learned about women, happiness and feminism while writing The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit Of Happiness might surprise you.   

What prompted you to write a book about the intersections of feminism and women’s happiness?

The more that I reported on feminist issues, it became clear that a lot of what I was writing about underlined the bad experiences women have; so many of the ways in which our lives are made to be less good than they could be. It made me wonder: what does real hostility to female happiness and female pleasure look like? Everything from access to birth control and abortion rights, which seems really vested in this cultural disdain for the idea of women having sex for pleasure, to a lot of the advice that young women get about how to avoid rape, which is essentially saying don’t go out and have fun. There seems to be a real value in this hostility to women having good lives. So when I put those pieces of it together, it seemed like a ripe argument to make. And not just to say here’s the problem, but to at least attempt to make a real moral case for the good of female happiness.

In your chapter “Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions” you talk about how the concept of happiness, as written into the Declaration of Independence, wasn’t made for women. Can you talk to me a little bit about the history of happiness and how women were ― for lack of a better term ― written out of it?

When the founders were writing that all were entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the only people that were actually entitled to those things at the time were land-owning white men. So it wasn’t even just men, it was a small subsection of the American male population at the time. The reality is that while men may not have been able to achieve happiness, they’ve had the ability to pursue it on the backs of free and invisible labor of women and people of color. The way that this system has been constructed, with this subgroup at the top of it, couldn’t exist unless you had the rest of us doing the legwork to make it happen.

What I was interested in exploring in the book is not just how do we make women equal to men in a system that men have built for themselves, but what does the female pursuit of happiness look like? If women were writing that founding document, what kind of system and institutions would we build around it to make that promise possible for women as well? 

In your introduction you write: “Women today live in a world of unfinished feminism, where we’re told we’re equal but see our basic rights up for grabs, where we’re told to push harder at work, or recognize we can’t have it all, or marry Mr. Good Enough.” Can you expand on this notion of “unfinished feminism” and how it impacts women’s happiness?

Obviously, the feminist movement has done incredible things for American women and women around the world, and it’s had massive victories. It’s obviously valuable to show how far we’ve come in such a short period of time, especially in the grand scheme of human history. But, it’s not complete yet. We’re living at this intersection of old cultural values that are really butting up against a more feminist world.

Most women do work outside of the home, most of us work for pay, we go to college and graduate college in greater numbers than young men. But our laws and policies ― not only have they not caught up ― but we have lawmakers who have intentionally blocked them from catching up as a way to essentially make it almost impossible for women to succeed in the modern world. And a lot of this becomes very individualized: If I feel overwhelmed by trying to raise children and have a job that must be my problem and my problem to solve. Rather than making it a collective, societal problem and creating collective mechanisms to actually make a more feminist life livable.

Women today live in a world of unfinished feminism, where we’re told we’re equal but see our basic rights up for grabs, where we’re told to push harder at work, or recognize we can’t have it all.
Jill Filipovic

You discuss the cultural definition of being a woman as always defining yourself in relation to others ― “she’s someone’s mother, sister, wife.” You coined this the “cult of female sacrifice,” which I really love. What are the consequences of this sacrifice?

I think what you see is that women are pushed into putting others before themselves, in terms of their sex lives, in terms of their relationships ― whether that’s a romantic relationship or a parental relationship or even a friendship ― I think it’s just ingrained in us. It’s almost an inability to get up in the morning and think ‘OK what is it that I want?’ It’s not just internal either, there’s this cultural expectation that women will do this. When women break that mold it can have really negative consequences. There’s been a lot of great studies that say that women don’t negotiate for more money and therefore they get paid less. But one of the reasons women don’t negotiate for more money is because when they do they’re perceived as pushy and aggressive and unlikable and they’re penalized for it. That to me is a pretty good encapsulation of a woman putting herself and her own needs and desires for fair compensation ahead of somebody else’s comfort. And we see women face financial consequences for doing that.

Another example is the advice young college women get about how to avoid sexual assault. Usually they’re told to not drink, to not go out ― basically, don’t do the normal things that everyone in your peer group is doing and that young men always do. If you don’t forgo this kind of pleasure, you may be punished for it. The punishment may be you get raped and the further cultural punishment is that everybody looks at you and says “What did she think was going to happen?” The consequences of this idea that women should always sacrifice their own pleasure or their own needs are pretty far-reaching and pervasive.

In your chapter about female pleasure and happiness you discuss sacrifice as a “central part of womanhood” that leads to a missing “road map for basic female demands.” How do you think this lack of guidance to demanding self-pleasure coupled with the “cult of female sacrifice” informs women’s happiness?

Obviously, one of the ways to be happy and to feel happy is through basic hedonistic pleasure ― stimulated in the five senses. Whether that’s eating a great meal or having a good sexual experience, all of these things are the kind of small things that add up to a life that feels good and happy and pleasurable.

Of course this does not apply to every single person, but for most people sex is one of the most pleasurable things that we do. For many women, sex is also a locus of fear and sometimes a locus of violence, and that obviously undercuts our ability to have happy and healthy sex lives. So does this idea of performative female sexuality and the idea that we’re sexual objects to be enjoyed by someone else. Women are told we’re not sexual actors to figure out what our enjoyment even looks and feels like.

You discuss how traditional “women’s work” remains undervalued and underpaid. How do you think this gap affects women’s happiness and pleasure?

One thing we know is that although money doesn’t buy happiness, economic instability does decrease people’s happiness. It’s only true that money doesn’t make you happy above a certain level. So when the work that women have traditionally done is both underpaid and undervalued the following happens: A) It makes someone economically insecure, which is a very quick route to unhappiness; and B) It means that women are less likely to derive the kind of identity and sense of purpose from their work that men long have. Certainly, for a lot of people care work can feel quite meaningful, but it becomes an issue when we send the message that that kind of work is not particularly valuable and is not valuable in part because women do it. We really undercut not only women’s paychecks but also our psychological and emotional health as it relates to our jobs.

Women are funneled towards certain options because our choices are constrained and then we’re told that we’re the ones doing the choosing and so it’s our responsibility. That’s the path that needs to be upended.
Jill Filipovic

In your chapter “Summer Sisters: Women And The Power Of Female Friendships” you write about the effects platonic female friendship have on women’s happiness and how, often times, they’re more integral to personal growth than romantic relationships.

Female friendships have always factored into the lives of women, but especially now when women are getting married later than ever before; when we live so much more of our lives outside of the nuclear family structure. Many of us leave our homes at 17 or 18 to go off to college or to go into the workforce and the average age of marriage for women now is 27. The average woman has a decade in there where she’s living at least semi-independently and where a romantic partner is not her primary outlet into the rest of the world. Even after we marry, women are much more likely to work outside of the home now than we used to. We have far more connection and especially in those formative years when we’re becoming full human beings in our 20s ― for a lot of women that happens surrounded by other women. 

And while female friendships are not new, the length of time that women spend single, living with other women and having them be our primary outlets is new. And that’s something we haven’t really caught up with policy-wise: how to recognize that often the chief person in your life is not a romantic partner.

It’s raised the bar for romantic relationships, as well. Most of my adult life I’ve lived with other women, so I know it’s perfectly possible to split doing the dishes and both take out the garbage. To be able to share space with somebody and have an equal division of labor, to love somebody and not only love them because you’re romantically attached to them, because you do have this enduring connection to both share the chores and share the emotional labor of the relationship: I think all of that leads to better romantic relationships later in life if that’s the path that you go down. It’s frankly one of the reasons you see women who marry after the age of 25 having longer-lasting, happier, more stable marriages. We learn a lot of these really valuable relationship skills from our female friends.

So, what does the female pursuit of happiness look like?

It looks like a policy landscape that opens up opportunity for women and doesn’t constrain our options and then tell us everything is about individual choice. I think by now our politics rely quite a bit on “choice” language ― it’s a choice to work or stay home, it’s a choice to have kids or not have kids, it’s a choice to eat what you want. This is all very individualistic. But because of certain policy decisions we’ve made, many parts of women’s lives don’t feel like much of a choice.

Women are funneled towards certain options because our choices are constrained and then we’re told that we’re the ones doing the choosing and so it’s our responsibility. That’s the path that needs to be upended. We need a policy landscape that makes real choices available for women. It has to be a collective, social and political effort to say that female happiness matters ― and male happiness matters, too ― and that one of the roles of government is to make people’s lives better.
