Today is the 50th anniversary of the publication of Betty Friedan‘s groundbreaking book, “The Feminine Mystique.” Her famous assertion, that women are suffering from a ‘problem that has no name’ may still be true, or it may not. Friedan’s book may seem old and out of date. Young people may feel it unnecessary to know about the book. What the book reminds us of is, however, that we still have a problem–women are harassed, abused, suffer unequal pay, and more. If it is less of a problem (since Friedan wrote her book) for us American women, it is certainly is true for women in far reaches of the globe, STILL. Many cannot talk about their situations, and for many, it has no name.

Rest up, Hillary. We will need you in 2016, and promise not to overly watch you this time. Wishful thinking, but I think times have changed. My post on Hillary Clitnon on Forbes.com

I recently wrote a piece about women’s rights in 2013, and shared a clip of Hillary Clinton’s speech on the subject in 1995. Please go visit my column at Forbes.com! In the new year, I will focus almost exclusively on the issue of women’s rights.

My heart goes out to the families in Newtown. Our culture is too violent in many ways, and we need to figure out how to make some changes.

I suggest that the better course to teach might be “How Not To Rape.”

Every now and then, I wonder what it’s like to be Hillary Clinton. Just the other day, I wondered that again as I read that she peeled off from the Presidental party in Mayanmar and flew off to Jerusalem to meet with world leaders. The moment I heard Secretary of State Clinton was traveling to the Middle East to try to assist in negotiating a cease fire in the deadly fighting between Gaza and Israel, I humorously said to myself (and to twitter): Hillary is going to the Mid-East to put those boys in a “time out.” And I drew this cartoon.
It is certain all four players helped to bring about a cease fire. Who knows if Hillary was a key player? If she hadn’t gone to be a part of the negotiations, would there have been a cease fire? We won’t know until one of them writes a book about it.
But I think I will add Hillary to the list of all the things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. I hope that yesterday she got to stop helping the world for a moment and have some turkey and stuffing with Chelsea and Bill.
