Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

comfortable magic pants for workWe’ve included these pants in a lot of roundups over the past year or so, but I don’t think we’ve ever featured them by themselves for a Workwear Report.

They are a pull-on style, have no pockets, and have instructions to “dry clean or machine wash cold, tumble dry low.” They’re $ 168-$ 178, available in regular, petite and plus sizes, and come in a bazillion colors in the slim ankle pants (pictured in navy), as well as in straight leg full length styles.

Report: NFL Won’t Implement a New National Anthem Policy This Season

(Bloomberg) — The U.S. National Football League isn’t expected to implement a new policy on the national anthem this season, ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes, citing unidentified legal sources.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a revision of its Game Operations Manual on May 23 to include fines for teams whose “personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.” The National Football League Players Association filed a grievance over the policy, which was introduced after a number of players began protesting police brutality and racial injustice by kneeling during the anthem.

While talks on the issue will continue, too many people have too strong stances to find a compromise at this point, Schefter reports, adding that there will be no policy for the time being. Under the old policy, players had to be at the field for the anthem, but while they were “strongly encouraged” to stand, they were not required to do so, a spokesman for he NFL said 12 months ago.

U.S. President Donald Trump and the White House have spent much of the past year criticizing the NFL. “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there, maybe you shouldn’t be in the country,” Trump said during an interview with Fox News after the new policy was introduced in May.

A new escalation came this month when Nike Inc. presented an advertisement in its new “Just Do It” campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started the protest during the 2016 season. The hashtags #BoycottNike and #JustBurnIt started trending on Twitter with users posting videos of burning Nike products.

“Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts,” Trump said in tweet on Sept. 5. However, online sales of Nike apparel and shoes surged in the four days after Kaepernick became the face of a new advertising campaign.

Report: Kendall Jenner ‘Rips Caitlyn’ For ‘Turning Back’ on Family

ANGELA WEISS

There have long been reports and rumors of tension between Caitlyn Jenner and her kids with Kris Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall.

Earlier this year, Caitlyn herself said, without referring specifically to her Kardashian-blood kids, that she doesn’t see much of her family, saying, “I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They’ve all moved on.”

And although Caitlyn was invited to Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday bash last month—an invite that caught some Kardashian analysts by surprise and was interpreted as a mellowing of the relationship—now comes a report that Kendall Jenner was reportedly seen “ripping Caitlyn a new one” during a tense argument at Nobu Malibu.

In Samsung’s just released Q2 report, the South Korean electronics conglomerate missed the mark on Galaxy S9 sales targets. The smartphone, which was released at the end of last quarter, accounts for a major chunk of Samsung’s 4 percent year on year drop in revenue.

Earlier this month, analysts warned that Samsung’s Galaxy S9 smartphone could be the worst selling Galaxy S series phone since the release of the Galaxy S3 in 2012.

New Report Highlights House of Fraser’s Mounting Debt to Brands

LONDON — Trouble continues to mount at House of Fraser as a recent report by Ernst & Young, the professional services firm, cites that the retailer owes millions of pounds to its creditors, including major luxury brand partners.
The retail chain, which was bought on Friday morning by Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley, is indebted to a slew of retailers including Giorgio Armani, Mulberry and Kurt Geiger.
Kurt Geiger is owed 4.9 million pounds, Giorgio Armani 1.59 million pounds, Mulberry 2.4 million pounds, Warehouse 1.4 million pounds and J. Barbour 3 million pounds.
The news follows at the heels of a payment dispute between XPO Logistics, which runs two of HoF’s warehouses, and Sports Direct, who has stopped fulfilling orders for the retailer and who is owed 30.4 million pounds.
As a result, HoF shut down its web site, reportedly sitting on at least 50,000 unfulfilled online orders. XPO Logistics and Sports Direct could not be reached for comment.
The report also shows that HoF made a pretax loss of 4.1 million pounds for the year to Jan. 21, 2018 and in the first quarter to April 28, the retailer witnessed a 7.7 percent drop in turnover with earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization

Report: Travel Capsule for the Amalfi Coast

We recently got back from a two-week trip to the Italian Amalfi Coast and it was absolutely FABULOUS. I had high expectations, which were more than met. We had the best time, first just the two of us in Positano, and after that with a group of old friends in Massa Lubrense. The picturesque scenery was breathtaking, the food sublime, the locals lovely, and the company even better.

My travel capsule worked extremely well, and here are the details.

Italy Travel Capsule

The first few days in Positano were very warm and not so humid, and then it got HOT for the rest of the trip. A very sunny 30-35 degrees Celsius during the day (86 to 95 Fahrenheit) with 92% humidity. It cooled down to 25 degrees Celsius (77 Fahrenheit) at night, but stayed humid. The humidity accentuated the heat, and for the most part there was no air conditioning. Thankfully, we had a/c in the car and in our bedrooms at night.

The most important part of my capsule was footwear, and I had VERY happy feet throughout the trip. We walked 10,000 to 20,000 steps a day, up and down hills and an extraordinary amount of steep stairs in blazing heat. Not one blister, sore arch, or even as much as a red mark on my feet. I did feel my calf muscles since it was 6000 steps from the the beach to our Positano hotel. WOW, it was quite the workout. Daily gelato gave us energy and kept us cool.

 I wore my loafers and mules the first few days, and then switched to sneakers and sandals for most of the trip. My huarache sandals were WINNERS, and I was very thankful I had them. The mules were not a good shoe for stair climbing, but they were perfect for walking to breakfast, lounging at the pool, and in the villa with our friends. I also bought a pair of lemon-patterned mules in Positano on our first day, which worked perfectly with my citron bag. Their narrow fit worked surprisingly well for my low-volume feet. I wore them out to dinner several times because why the heck not. Go Team Wear.

Lemon Loafers

I had planned to wear dresses, skirt and tops, and white jeans and tops during the day. Instead, I ended up wearing dresses and a skirt with tops, saving my white jeans for dinners at night. It was too humid to wear white jeans without a/c, but they worked well in the cooler evening when I felt like a fresh outfit. The jeans did a good job of protecting my legs from the mosquitos that descend on the Amalfi coast in large numbers at sunset.

Massa Lubrense

My dress and skirt outfits were perfect for me. Breezy, covered, comfortable, not constricting, relatively crease-free, polished, crisp, and easy to dress down with flats. The style quotient is high in Italy, so I’m extra glad I felt on trend, dressy, pulled together, and, most importantly, very comfortable.

My swimwear capsule was great, although I didn’t wear it as often as I had hoped. I wore it at the pool by the hotel, but didn’t end up swimming at the beaches. Too rocky, cold, slippery and salty. I lent my straw bag to dear friend Annie to wear at night because it matched her lovely outfits (a nice way to extend my capsule). I was extremely vigilant about sun protection, and wore my straw hat most of the time whilst slathered in sunscreen (and insect repellent). I came back tanned with zero sunburn and so did Greg, which we thought was quite the accomplishment!

Positano View

I wore my bag as a satchel most of the time, but was pleased to have it convert into a crossbody for airports, flights, and for our day in Naples. I wore one denim jacket at night by the beach on a day that was less hot, and my other denim jacket on all the flights. For the rest, they hung in my closet. I wore my pearls every day, and my sunnies all the time.

I highly recommend visiting this beautiful part of Italy, but avoid Summer unless you love the heat!

Time to put that Ganni sundress down and brace up.  A teeny bit of brow-mopping in the changing rooms and clever summer sales blitzing now and you’ll have your entire autumn/winter wardrobe sorted – while other, less organised beings are still panic-buying bikinis on their way to the airport. Mwah ha ha.

So, what did we learn from the NY/London/Milan/Paris AW18 Fashion Week whirl?

The buzzword of the coming season is ‘protection’ – whether it’s from the mean streets, or just from the elements, the options for cosseting and swathing yourself in layers of coverage are endless. It might not sound that welcome now – but when the chill winds start a-blowing, you’ll see this mega trend in a whole, grateful new light (we promise). Parkas, puffas, blankets, double, even triple coats – if in doubt, it’s all about adding another layer. And we’re starting from the head down. Balaclavas, silk headscarves, beanies, glamorous Little Red Riding Hood style hoods for evening… basically, it’s going to be a really good season for bad hair days. Hurrah! Without further ado, here are the trends to start planning your AW18 wardrobe around.

Scroll on down for all the Autumn Winter 2018 trends to know about…

Autumn trends 2018: Check print

Autumn trends 2018

Her Majesty appearing in Richard Quinn’s frow, Prince Charles’ support of the British Fashion Council, the fashion furore surrounding The Wedding…the royals are on trend as never before. And fashion loves them right back – stiff upper lip style in the form of trad tweeds, plaids and Balmoral-perfect silk headscarves are everywhere. Quinn worked foulards (the classic patterned silk scarf) into crazy layered looks, while Paul Andrew crafted archive foulard prints into chic shirtdresses for his Ferragamo debut.

Autumn trends 2018: Colour blocking

Autumn trends 2018

Designers including Marc Jacobs and Francesco Risso at Marni brought all the joy by showing off their skills as colourists – beautiful, unusual palettes were everywhere, reminding us of some of our favourite artists. Full-on Keith Haring neon at Prada, refreshing David Hockney pastels at Eudon Choi, tonal blocking a la Rothko at Marni and amazing Matisse style primary colour combos at Marc Jacobs.

Autumn trends 2018: 70s fashion

Autumn trends 2018

It’s the decade that won’t die when it comes to recent trends. And the sepia-tinged retro mood continues for autumn. But which 1970s character are you? Roksanda’s uptown girl, Marco de Vincenzo’s flares-wearing preppy or Louis Vuitton’s sporty jersey dress fan? Whichever way you go, remember – it has to be caramel, tan, toffee, tobacco..any colour as long as it’s a variation on camel, basically.

Autumn trends 2018: Boho clothes

Autumn trends 2018

Womens’ rights, LGBTQ rights, anti-sexism, anti-Trump, plastic in the oceans…you name it, we’re feeling strongly about it. Maria Grazia Chiuri has stoked controversy – and sales – with her political slogan t-shirts at Dior. And there was another heavy waft of CND-protest feeling in her AW18 Dior collection – nuclear disarmament symbols, tufted woven-rag knits, flat caps…Elsewhere, Missoni and Peter Pilotto also made a strong case for studenty knits and tie-dye.

Autumn trends 2018: Floral prints

Autumn trends 2018

We all love a floral dress for summer, but designers are amping them up with a dark, dramatic twist for this winter too. Rendered on black backgrounds, flowers look dark and decadent – at Saint Laurent, Anthony Vacarello covered his signature micro Dynasty dresses with flowers including sequinned poppies. Over at Preen and Erdem, there was a more historical mood, with blowsy roses winding over coats and silk dresses.

Autumn fashion trends 2018: Leopard print

Autumn trends 2018

Zebra is galloping into the spotlight as the animalia du jour – see Tom Ford’s OTT red take – and luckily for the Bet Lynch at heart, there’slots of amazing leopard. And there’s a lot happening in the world of furry coats – after Gucci’s recent announcement that they would no longer use real fur, we’re pleased to say that other major luxury houses are following suit. Designer of the moment Claire Waight Keller produced silky, standout leopard coats at Givenchy – and they’re all faux. Hur-roar…

Autumn fashion trends 2018: Hats

Autumn trends 2018

Whether it’s all about drama, a move towards the modest or just being plain toasty warm – covering your head is autumn’s biggest accessory message. Raf Simons set the tone at Calvin Klein during New York Fashion Week with standout knitted balaclavas – watch out for homages galore coming to a high street near you soon. Versace was all about the 1980s-tastic coloured beret, and the large silk headscarf is your best new accessory friend. Your mum will be so pleased.

Autumn trends 2018: Puffer jackets

Autumn trends 2018

‘Protection’ was the buzzword bandied around during the shows – a sense of clothes as urban armour, whether you’re stalking the mean streets, or just battling the elements. Shows like Balenciaga, Maison Margiela and Marni sum up the season’s styling – take a functional, sports-inflected polo, pile on a coat over a jacket, and add a puffa (and then another one)…

Autumn trends 2018: Blanket coats

Autumn trends 2018

Cape lovers – there’s a new update in town. Say hello to the blanket. And it’s not even a ‘blanket coat’ as such – it is quite literally a blanket. They were draped round the girls at shows including Roksanda and Isabel Marant,  for an insouciant take on covering up for the cold. Easy to whip on, easy to take off and use for emergency winter picnics. Just joking – Roksanda’s cashmere would definitely demand a table, not grass.

Autumn trends 2018: Graphic print clothes

Autumn trends 2018

If delicate winter blooms aren’t your thing, there’s a whole other bold, non-pretty pattern trend to make a statement with. Choose from a host of graphic prints with a strong 1980s urban art vibe: Burberry’s graffiti squiggles looked as if they’d been lifted from the side of a New York subway carriage, while Jeremy Scott paid tribute to Lichtenstein cartoons at Moschino and Mary Katrantzou did bold Bauhaus lettering.

Autumn fashion trends 2018: Pajamas

Autumn trends 2018

The perfect antidote to animal print, bold colours and aggressive outerwear – say bonjour to the new AW18 update on robe dressing. Silk pajama suits, flowing belted robe coats and Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s pretty lace-trimmed separates at Chloe. And relax…

Autumn fashion trends 2018: Silver clothes

Autumn trends 2018

Global Bacofoil shortage incoming. That’s right, cool futuristic silver is the metallic to shine in. At MM6, it was head to toe (and wall to wall – the presentation took place in a blinding silver-lined room) – from trenches to boots. At Balmain, it was all about the glamazon that Olivier Rousteng loves so much, dressed in high shine lame. There was good old-fashioned movie star glamour courtesy of Givenchy’s swishy silver beading. Butif all this is making you think ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ – fear not. There are also cool, less ‘Hollywood’ takes on the trend – like the parkas at Marques Almeida and a holographic trench at Sies Marjan.

Autumn fashion trends 2018: Accessories

Autumn trends 2018

Autumn trends 2018

More is more is more. Our favourite kind of season…cowboy boots have been taking Instagram by storm and they’re set to continue as the must-have footwear trend for autumn. In keeping with all the layering going on, even scarves are getting in on the act – Karl Lagerfeld piled different coloured versions round the models’ necks at Chanel, and we are obsessed with Miu Miu’s punky retro knitted scarf-lets (is that a word? We say yes). Also on our wishlist: the giant squashy clutch, the fluffy Muppet bag, OTT earrings…and lastly – the cheap and cheerful banana clip. Splash out on a designer version – or hit the bargain bucket at the local chemist. You’re welcome!

Report: Nope, Not the Smartphone. Radio Is No. 1 Audio Platform for Black People

A new Nielsen report reveals that when it comes to content platforms, radio is No.1 for black and Hispanic consumers.

Nielsen’s Audio Today report analyzes the audio habits of black and Hispanic audiences. It found over 75 million black and Hispanic listeners tune-in to radio each week; that’s a breakdown of 92% of black consumers and 96% of Hispanics.

Surprisingly, perhaps, radio is more of what is referred to in the report as a “reach vehicle” than the smartphone. For 81% of blacks and 80% of Hispanics, their smartphone serves as their main device for consuming audio content.

Another interesting revelation—blacks and Hispanics are more likely to use smart speakers and audio streaming services than white consumers. Nineteen percent of blacks versus 18% of whites have a smart speaker in their household. Smart speakers can range from Bluetooth devices from vendors such as JBL and Sony; to smart home assistants such as Google Home and the Apple Homepod.

Fifty-two percent of blacks use audio streaming services including Spotify, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Pandora, Apple Music, Soundcloud, etc., versus 40% of whites.

radio

(Nielsen)

The report also delves deeper into black people’s radio habits. On average, blacks listen to 13 hours and 32 minutes of radio per week. Most of that listening is done from 3 PM–7 PM, Monday–Friday during the work commute home.

Overall, urban adult contemporary is the No. 1 radio format listened to by blacks in all age groups. Generation Z and millennials favor urban contemporary over all other formats. The top five advertisers vying the most for the ears of black consumers are McDonald’s at No. 1, and then Comcast Xfinity, Optima Tax Relief, T-Mobile, and Metro PCS, respectively.

Radio has been one of the fastest and perhaps most welcoming platforms for black voices, especially during times when it was rare to see African Americans on television or in the movies, other than negative portrayals. Brian Ward, a University of Florida history professor, says that “black radio stations and disc jockeys often were as important as ministers and politicians in mobilizing support for the civil rights movement of the 1960s.”

Black wealth has also been made via radio. Berry Gordy created what was one of the nation’s largest black businesses for many years as well as the careers of iconic music stars with the Motown sound.

And Cathy Hughes took Radio One and built it into a multimedia empire, Urban One Inc. with annual revenues of more than $ 400 million.

Report: Black Youth Unemployment Rate Down In Chicago

A new report on youth unemployment in Illinois found that the alarmingly high rate of young black men and women in Chicago who are neither working nor in school has dropped.

Data collected from 2012 through 2016 under the Obama administration and published by the University of Chicago’s Great Cities Institute, found that there has been a decrease in out of work, and out of school rates for black 20- to 24-year-olds in Chicago in recent years, but that substantial racial and gender gaps still remain. And although the newly found statistics are encouraging, researchers found that nearly a third of black 20- to 24-year-olds and 37% of black 20 -to 24-year-old men are still out of work and not going to school.

Report Highlights:

  • Joblessness and out-of-school and out-of-work rates were comparatively worse in areas of south, west, and central Illinois compared to Cook County.
  • The highest jobless rates for 20- to 24-year-olds in Illinois were located outside of the Chicago Metro Area in south, west, and central Illinois.
  • Joblessness and out-of-school and out-of-work rates for the total population, black, white, and Hispanic or Latino 20- to 24-year-olds were higher in sections of southern, western, and central Illinois than in Cook County.
  • Five subsections of Illinois had an out-of-school and out-of-work rate for black 20- to 24-year-olds above 40% and one area had a rate of 63.6%

What Researchers Learned

  • Black 20-to 24-year-olds had large improvements in out-of-work figures: Black 20- to 24-year-olds in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois and the U.S. had large decreases in out-of-work rates.
  • There were improvements in out-of-school and out-of-work rates for black 20- to 24-year olds in Chicago and worsening figures for Latinos from 2014 to 2016.
  • Teen employment in mid-sized cities and rural areas declined substantially: employment to population ratios for 16- to 19-year-olds in Illinois case study counties with mid-sized cities have decreased substantially since 1980.
  • Economies of mid-sized cities and rural economies are not incorporating young people into the workforce:
  • The mix of jobs in rural economies has changed in similar ways to Chicago, resulting in fewer opportunities for young people as older populations are increasingly employed in industries that young people have historically been employed in, such as retail.
  • Middle-class occupations are leaving medium-sized cities and rural areas as income inequalities grow: proportions of individuals in poverty and in high-income groups in Illinois case study counties are growing as middle-income groups are shrinking.

To Jack Wuest, executive director of the Alternative Schools Network, the data demonstrate an urgent need for more government-subsidized jobs so young people can gain basic work skills and become contributing members of the labor force. “Getting people on their feet, doing some work, out of the house, gives them a sense of dignity and power that they can spend money on what they like as well as take care of their family,” he said.

Report: More Than 3,100 Corporations Are Profiting From Mass Incarceration

Robert Rihmeek Williams may be free but millions of other young, black and brown men just like him are not—and that’s no coincidence. After a lengthy legal battle and an outpouring of national support, the 30-year-old Philadelphia rapper better known as “Meek Mill” was released from jail on April 24. The hip-hop star was sentenced last November to two to four years behind bars for a series of minor, non-violent probation violations, following his 2008 conviction for drug and weapons charges. One of the violations included performing a motorcycle stunt while shooting a music video in New York in August 2017.

Meek Mill Becomes a Symbol of Injustice

The sentence sparked mass outrage among fans, celebrities, professional athletes, prison reform activists, and the hip-hop community at large. Hundreds of thousands of people protested in Philadelphia, signed online petitions, and stood behind the #FreeMeekMill campaign. They argued that the harsh punishment was unwarranted and rooted in racism. For many, the hip-hop star became a symbol of discrimination within the U.S. criminal justice system, which predominantly impacts men of color.

Following his release last week, Williams vowed to help others trapped in the cycle of recidivism. “I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury [to fight justice] and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues,” he tweeted.


Williams’ case is not unusual. According to reports, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime. After being convicted of a crime, offenders are then often subjected to parole or probation and years of court-ordered supervision. As a result, even a small violation can send them back to prison for a long time. This policy disproportionately affects African American men who compromise one-third of the 4.6 million Americans currently on parole or subject to probation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics. Overall, 1 in every 15 African American men are incarcerated compared to 1 in every 36 Hispanic men and 1 in every 106 white men. But, not only are these men being stripped of their time and families, corporations are making billions of dollars in exchange for their freedom.

The Birth of the Private Prison Industry

According to an Urban Justice Center report, the private prison industry began when CoreCivic was granted the first contract to operate a correctional facility in 1983. The GEO Group entered the private prison market the following year. Over the next three decades, the U.S. prison population increased five times, from approximately 500,000 to over 2.2 million between 1980 and 2015. The companies grew to own and operate roughly 130 correctional facilities with over 150,000 beds. By 2017, CoreCivic and The GEO Group were earning combined annual revenues of $ 4 billion on the more than 45 million individual nights that people spend incarcerated in their correctional facilities every year.

Profits Over People 

CoreCivic and The GEO Group are the most recognized for-profit entities operating in the prison industrial complex, but there are hundreds more. In fact, a new report from the Urban Justice Center’s Corrections Accountability Project identifies more than 3,100 companies that earn revenue through contracts with the U.S. prison industrial complex. They all either knowingly or unknowingly generate profits through the criminal legal system on the backs of low-income and minority communities.

In a statement, Corrections Accountability Project director Bianca Tylek said the report serves to expose the corporations benefitting from mass incarceration beyond the two notorious private prison giants.

“There are thousands of publicly-traded, private equity-owned, and privately-held companies that generate profits through the criminal legal system on the backs of those it targets: low-income and minority communities,” Tylek said in an emailed statement.

 

“Until today, these companies have operated largely behind closed doors, often intentionally masking their involvement. Yet given the reach of the criminal legal system today, still others, have found themselves unintentionally wrapped up in the prison industrial complex. Nevertheless, both present an engagement opportunity for advocates fighting to shut down the industry and shift the economy that have been built around mass incarceration.”

Conduent (formerly Xerox Services), GE Healthcare, and Motorola Solutions are just a few of the companies listed that have a “business segment targeting the prison industrial complex in its business model or through marketing, advertising, or sponsorship,” reads the report. Corporate investors include Vanguard Group, Fidelity, and Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance.

Other companies listed include Universal Health Services, Duke Energy, National Grid and The Home Depot, which provides equipment for prisons. Thomson Reuters, Timberland, T-Mobile, Microsoft Corp. Office Depot., OfficeMax, Time Warner Cable, Apple Industrial Supply, and Bank of America.

War on Women Report No. 23

The War on Women is in full force under the Trump administration. We refuse to go back, and we refuse to let the administration quietly dismantle the progress we’ve made. We are watching. 

This is the War on Women Report.

Monday, 4/16

W Magazine Monday published an interview with Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards in which she vocally criticized Ivanka Trump. “My criticism of her isn’t as a daughter of the president—it’s that if you’re supposedly in charge of advancing women’s situations in this country, then show up,” Richards said. “And for God’s sake, you can’t be trading away women’s rights.” In her new book, Make Trouble, Richards recounts a meeting with Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner in which they offered to give Planned Parenthood more funding if the organization ended their abortion services.

+ On Monday, a new ABC/Washington Post poll revealed 68 percent of women view President Trump unfavorably as a person; 61 percent of all people polled responded that they disliked Trump as a person. These numbers are obviously quite high—and yet, on some level, it doesn’t feel like they’re high enough, considering that this is the same man who dismissed boasting about sexual assault as “locker room talk” mere weeks before being elected.

+ Also on Monday, a lawyer to Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen revealed Cohen’s third client to be Fox News’ Sean Hannity. Cohen also worked for Trump and RNC deputy finance chairman Elliott Broidy; he helped him cover up an extramarital sexual relationship and subsequent abortion. Hannity, who has repeatedly used airtime to defend Cohen, has since vehemently denied the allegations. Just last year, a woman accused Hannity of sexual harassment.

Tuesday, 4/17

+ On Tuesday, Buzzfeed reported that Trump officials attending a closed-door meeting at the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women demanded the removal of language recognizing contraception, abortion and sexual health education as human rights and called the U.S. a “pro-life” country. According to the report, the Health Department officials’ demands were opposed by all but one other country in the room. These comments, which those present at the meeting have said sent a wave of silence over the attendees, fit into the larger anti-abortion agenda of the Trump administration—one with devastating global effects. Earlier this year, the State Department removed pro-reproductive rights language from a global report on women’s rights; within days of becoming president, Trump put millions of women and girls of reproductive age around the world by re-instating the Global Gag Rule and threatening the funding of organizations that even so much as mention contraception and abortion to their patients.

+ Also on Tuesday, Right Wing Watch published a report revealing that religious conservative group Focus on the Family, which hosted vice-president Mike Pence as an event speaker just last month, successfully sought to be recognized as a church by the IRS in 2016, likely for freedom from financial transparency rules and requirements such as unemployment benefits and the ACA contraceptive mandate. In a letter to the tax bureau, the organization’s attorneys called the group’s employees its “ministers” and “congregation” and its board members “elders,” and identified its cafeteria as “a place of worship.” The group’s pitch was successful—which is concerning most of all because of the precedent this could set for similar organizations to evade the kind of accountability advocacy groups nationwide are held to. Focus on the Family has notably supported so-called LGBT “conversion therapy,” a practice denounced in the medical community which can drive queer and trans youth to suicide. A former Focus president—or “head deacon,” according to its attorneys—claimed the Sandy Hook massacre was God’s punishment for LGBTQ lifestyles. In 2017, Mike Pence said Focus on the Family had “an unwavering ally in President Donald Trump” in a speech to its members.

+ Nikki Haley responded on Tuesday to National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow’s comments that she had spoken out of “momentary confusion” about new U.S. sanctions against Russia, which Trump later walked back on. “With all due respect,” she remarked, “I don’t get confused.” Haley’s seemingly hostile response to a fellow Trump official has since drawn wide attention—and while her rebuttal to Kudlow’s condescending comment is important, it’s worth noting that the former Governor of South Carolina has stood behind the majority of the president’s foreign policy decisions, many of which have been disastrous for global women’s rights.

+Women fleeing violence, sexual assault and domestic abuse have long sought necessary asylum in the U.S.—but that may soon change. On Tuesday, Politico reported that President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have actively been working to repeal a program allowing survivors of domestic abuse fleeing from their abusers in Central America to receive asylum in the United States. “Sessions, from his position as the top official in charge of the immigration courts,” Politico reported, “is leading a broad review to question whether domestic or sexual violence should ever be recognized as persecution that would justify protection in the United States.”

Wednesday, 4/18

+ Former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal was released from her NDA agreement about her alleged extramarital relationship with Donald Trump on Wednesday. While the affair was consensual and more outrage is due to his alleged acts of sexual misconduct, Trump’s alleged extramarital sexual relationships are still highly important to discuss publicly, as they serve as a critical reminder of the hypocrisy of the president’s vast evangelical base.

+ On Wednesday, the House Agriculture Committee approved a draft of the “farm bill,” the 2014 version of which will soon expire. This new version written by Republican lawmakers would make SNAP eligibility even more difficult, and exacerbate the issue of food insecurity among low-income Americans. The bill would also eliminate the Conservation Stewardship Program, a key program for conserving water and soil. Its stringent work requirements for Americans to qualify for SNAP would also disproportionately affect women, who are more likely to head single-parent households, and more likely to live in poverty. The changes to the farm bill ignore how most able-bodied food-insecure people are not only working, but are also likely working multiple jobs and still struggling to provide food for themselves and their family. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came out in opposition of the farm bill draft this week.

+ On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted that Californians “want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested and breeding concept,” in reference to the state’s Sanctuary laws for undocumented immigrants. “Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border,” Trump added, “but the people of the state are not happy. Want security and safety NOW!” In addition to spreading false and dangerous stereotypes by depicting immigrants as criminals, the tweet used the particularly racist term “breeding,” which reduces them to animals. “Fear of immigrants from certain countries ‘breeding’ has been a staple of nativist thought for hundreds of years,” an op-ed on CNN pointed out. “The ‘breeding’ fear has been affixed to Jews from Eastern Europe, Catholics from Ireland and Italy, Chinese and, now, Latinos, Filipinos, Africans and Haitians.”

Thursday, 4/19

+ On Thursday, in a blow to President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s decision blocking the Justice Department’s latest attack on a sanctuary city. Sessions has used his position as attorney general to not only require judges to meet quotas in ruling in favor of deportation, but has also waged war on sanctuary cities across the country. The court blocked the Justice Department from adding new conditions on policing grants to Chicago that required cooperation with federal immigration enforcement, thus making it legally impossible for Chicago to be a sanctuary city.

+ Memos by James Comey released Thursday alleged that Trump had once told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Russia had the “most beautiful hookers in the world.” In addition to inflaming rumors and speculation about the validity of the controversial Steele dossier, the alleged comment also used an offensive and degrading term for sex workers—revealing Trump’s contempt for women even further.

Friday, 4/20

+ On Friday, CIA Director and nominee for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo failed to earn enough votes from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to move on to the full Senate in his confirmation hearings, although Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can still initiate a full Senate vote regardless. In addition to being anti-LGBTQ, Pompeo proudly opposes abortion rights for all women and even for rape survivors, a stance that could put women and girls around the world at risk. Under Rex Tillerson, the State Department was already hostile to women’s rights, removing key language about contraception and abortion from a global women’s rights report; Pompeo’s notoriously radicalized views would likely inspire even more concerning foreign policy shifts.

The Washington Post published a report Friday examining the Trump administration’s effects on violence stemming from white supremacy and nativism in the United States and Canada. This week, verdicts were reached in two cases, involving either a a shooting at or attempting bombing of mosques; the attacks were coordinated by white men in the weeks around when Trump won the 2016 election and when he was sworn into office. In neither case did Trump ever acknowledge these attacks, despite never ceding an opportunity to tweet or propagate Islamophobia in cases of terror attacks led by extremists citing Islam. According to the article, there is a correlation between Trump’s anti-migrant, Islamophobic language and a preading danger in the U.S. and around the world to communities of color and, specifically, those othered by and scapegoated by his rhetoric and policies. The report echoes the initial terror of the weeks following the 2016 election, in which hate crimes spiked and neo-Nazis became more emboldened across the country.

War on Women Report No. 22

The War on Women is in full force under the Trump administration. We refuse to go back, and we refuse to let the administration quietly dismantle the progress we’ve made. We are watching. 

This is the War on Women Report.

Last week

+ Last Friday, Bloomberg reported the Department of Homeland Security has developed a plan to monitor the public activities of hundreds of thousands media professionals, journalists and influencers. The plan is pretty much in line with the Trump administration’s war on American media and mission to attack and discredit journalists. It’s particularly concerning amid increasing threats and violence against journalists around the world.

Monday, 4/9

+ On Monday, the FBI raided President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen’s office to find information about fraudulent payments to Playboy playmate Karen McDougal and adult film star Stormy Daniels, both of whom have come forward alleging extramarital affairs with Trump prior to his presidency. The FBI also reportedly sought information on whether Cohen was involved in trying to keep the notorious Access Hollywood from being released in October 2016. The infamous tapes featured Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women.

Tuesday, 4/10

+ On Tuesday, as the U.S. observed Equal Pay Day, we were reminded of the Trump administration’s role in enabling and exacerbating the pay gap. Around the end of last year, the administration ended an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission initiative started by the Obama administration that required employers to report the wages they offered men, women and people of color to the government to promote transparency. The repeal of the initiative was notably approved by Ivanka Trump, who has ironically been posing as a champion of women’s empowerment throughout her father’s time in office.

Wednesday, 4/11

+ On Wednesday, Madeleine Albright, the first female secretary of state, questioned why Trump’s cabinet is “all white men” in an interview with Buzzfeed. “There are a lot of smart women that are very capable of making decisions,” she told the website. “One of the things I have said is women work incredibly hard, having a lot of good ideas, but there needs to be more than one woman in the room.” Trump’s cabinet is more stacked with white people and men than any cabinet in recent history—or, specifically, since former President Ronald Reagan’s administration from the ’80s.

+ The Senate held a confirmation hearing Wednesday for Wendy Vitter, a nominee for a federal judgeship in Louisiana. Vitter has gone on the record saying birth control pills lead to women suffering “violent deaths” and claiming Planned Parenthood “kills 150,000 females” every year. At the hearing, Vitter declined to answer questions of basic decency such as whether she supports the Brown v. Board Supreme Court decision to end segregation. If appointed, Vitter would become a judge in a state that is already deeply hostile toward abortion rights.

Thursday, 4/12

+ On Thursday, President Trump said that he would announce what action he will take in Syria “fairly soon” in the wake of a chemical attack over the weekend. Defense Secretary James Mattis is reportedly warning the president against escalating U.S. involvement in Syria by going forward with an “aggressive bombing campaign” which he has been calling for. Trump has a long record of erratic and unpredictable foreign policy stances, but his decision about whether to call for air strikes in Syria will hold grave human rights implications—all while the president and his administration continue to take a hard line against welcoming more refugees from the region.

This is the War on Women Report.

Monday, 3/19

+ On Monday, Donald Trump’s second son Eric Trump shared a tweet defending gun access by claiming shooting “taught [him] so many positive life lessons.” His tweet ignores notable racial biases that control who is able to own and shoot guns and not be perceived as dangerous, and comes in advance of this weekend’s nationwide marches for gun law reform in the wake of the mass shooting that left 17 dead in Parkland, Florida last month. Just this week, an unarmed black man in Sacramento was shot by police in his own backyard when they thought his cell phone was a gun; in 2016, police officers publicly executed Philando Castile, who had legally been carrying a gun.

+ Also on Monday, the president ignited a firestorm on Twitter when he issued a series of tweets delegitimizing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. A number of female lawmakers, led by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, offered the strongest response to Trump’s threats to obstruct justice, with Feinstein calling for regulations protecting Mueller’s investigation to be codified into legislation. Mueller’s investigation has thus far uncovered evidence that Russian “troll farms” gamed social media and search engine algorithms to spread sexist and racist fake news stories in order to push Trump to victory in the presidential election and defeat Hillary Clinton.

Tuesday, 3/20

+ On Tuesday, first lady Melania Trump hosted a summit about cyberbullying at the White House, just days before her husband would go on Twitter to call former vice president Joe Biden “crazy” and “weak,” adding that in a fight, “[Biden] would go down fast and hard, crying all the way.” The irony of Melania’s chosen special issue of cyberbullying should be clear with her husband’s pattern of online depravity, including suggesting Kirsten Gillibrand performed sexual favors in exchange for campaign funding.

+ A judge in New York Tuesday ruled that the president has no grounds to stop a woman accusing him of abuse from moving forward with her defamation suit. Summer Zervos, a former Apprentice contestant, in 2016 alleged Trump had groped and forcibly kissed her on multiple occasions—and after Trump called Zervos and the some 20 other women who have publicly accused him “liars,” Zervos sued him for defamation. Also on Tuesday, Playboy model Karen McDougal came forward claiming she and Trump had had a 10-month extramarital affair, and she sued the National Enquirer for the right to speak publicly about it. According to McDougal, Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen had conspired with American media companies to silence her.

+ The Trump administration moved forward with a Justice Department memo calling for the unconstitutional implementation of the death penalty for drug dealers Tuesday. The memo mirrored sentiments Trump expressed at a rally earlier this month: “If you shoot one person, they give you life, they give you the death penalty. These [drug traffickers] can kill 2,000, 3,000 people and nothing happens to them,” he said. Such a policy shift holds obvious implications for people of color; while drug use is relatively equal in different communities across racial lines, people of color are exponentially more likely to face legal consequences for drug possession, use, or dealing, which is a driving force of mass incarceration of black and brown people.

+ Speaking of members of Trump’s cabinets working to codify bigotry and intolerance, Housing and Urban Development secretary Ben Carson, fresh off a scandal involving $ 31,000 in taxpayer dollars and office furniture, spoke out against allowing trans and gender queer people in homeless shelters, claiming they made cisgender women unsafe and uncomfortable in defense of his decision to remove anti-discrimination training material from the HUD’s website. The reality is that trans people are far more likely to be the targets than the perpetrators of assault or harassment in public facilities, and this demographic is disproportionately affected by homelessness and housing insecurity. Sexual assault and women’s safety has never really meant much to lawmakers who work alongside Trump unless the perpetrators aren’t cisgender men—after all, they’ve opposing increased funding for rape kits, argued against lowered standards of evidence for campus sexual assault survivors and elected him president.

Wednesday, 3/21

+ On Wednesday, Politico reported an HHS website, WomensHealth.gov, had deleted a page about health care options for lesbian and bisexual women. The website maintains pages about some 100 other health topics.

Thursday, 3/22

+ On Thursday, the House approved a budget that denied a request from Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to slash billions of dollars in funding for grants for low-income students, after-school programs, resources for the Office of Civil Right, and mental health services in order to invest in private schools. It should be clear who would be most affected by such funding cuts: low-income students and families of color, and women, LGBTQ, differently abled people and other marginalized groups who rely on support from the OCR.

Friday, 3/23

+ On Friday, President Trump left D.C. for yet another trip to Mar-a-Lago—ostensibly to escape the March for Our Lives protest that will be taking place near the White House on Saturday. Trump has thus far been no ally to students and organizers demanding common-sense gun control to prevent future gun-related tragedies, but at the very least, they’ve received impassioned support from former President Barack Obama.

Report: Michael Cohen’s Efforts to Silence Stormy Daniels Began in 2011

Eduardo Munoz/Reuters

President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, reportedly began as early as 2011 his efforts to silence porn star Stormy Daniels from going public about an alleged affair with Trump—five years before he arranged for a $ 130,000 payment to Daniels.

According to The Washington Post, Cohen appeared to threaten an agent, Gina Rodriguez, who had “arranged for Daniels to earn $ 15,000 by telling her story to a celebrity publication.” Cohen allegedly relayed a message to Rodriguez’s ex-husband, Randy Spears, via phone: “You tell Gina that if she ever wants to work in this town again, she’ll call me immediately.”

Spears said he felt like Cohen was “trying to bully” him and Rodriguez, adding of his ex-wife: “She ranted and raved, like ‘How dare he?’”

Hillary Clinton Fractures her Wrist After Tripping During Her Visit to India: Report

Hillary Clinton‘s visit to India isn’t going as smoothly as she’d probably hoped.

The former Secretary of State sought medical attention during her visit to the Indian city of Jodhpur on Tuesday, according to The Times of India.

An unnamed doctor told the publication Clinton, 70, “was taken to the hospital in the morning where we administered CT Scan and X-Ray of her hand, which showed that she had a minor fracture in her right wrist.”

A spokesperson for Clinton did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The Deccan Herald reported Clinton was advised to rest by doctors in Jodhpur. Anand Goyal, who owns Goyal Hospital in the city, told the publication the hospital was called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace where Clinton was staying.

“We were requested to send a team of doctors and hot bandage to the hotel after Hillary complained of pain in her hand,” Goyal said.

Clinton was seen falling twice on the steps of a mosque, according to DNA India. The outlet reported she had also fallen in a bathtub while in Jodhpur on Tuesday afternoon, reportedly leading to her fractured wrist.

Within her itinerary, Clinton was scheduled to visit a historic fort at the Mehrangarh Museum in Jodhpur but an employee told the Deccan Herald it was canceled due to her injury.

This isn’t the first time Clinton has had health troubles. In September 2016, she canceled plans to visit California during her presidential campaign after she was diagnosed with pneumonia.

In December 2012, she suffered a concussion after fainting in her home. The State Department released a statement at the time saying she had been ill from a stomach virus and became dehydrated leading to her loss of consciousness.

She was hospitalized in January 2013 due to a “potentially serious” blood clot that was discovered during a follow-up exam related to her concussion, according to The New York Times. She spent several days at New York Presbyterian Hospital being treated with blood thinners and proper hydration, according to the publication.
