We live in a culture of misogyny — and until things start to change, men like Mr. Weinstein will continue to have carte blanche over women's bodies.

It is unfortunate that in today's world, it is a necessary life lesson.

What about the wonderful women who are discouraged by hatred, by naysaying, by the abusive and unkind people who stand in their way, or by the institutions? They are exceptional, valued, underestimated and maybe "too much" in the best way. I believe they should be told.
As many as 20,000 women are eligible for payouts.

Geek culture has a sexism (and, yep, racism) problem that it has been unable to shed despite growing into our era's dominant form of pop culture. This subcultural sexism has been a roadblock for female geeks over the years. But times are changing, and movies like Wonder Woman are speeding up that process.

"A woman should walk three steps behind a man." For generations, this saying has shaped the mindset and image that women should be protected and men should take the lead. Sadly, this attitude is still common in Japanese society and it holds girls and women back.

Young women are especially pessimistic.
Last year the minister responsible for Canada Post issued what a prohibitory order to stop delivery of a disgusting hate rag known as Your Ward News by Canada Post carriers. Defenders of Your Ward News say this is a free-speech issue, and their rights are being denied. They are completely wrong on both counts.

Good nutrition is not only fuel for strong bodies, it also provides power that unlocks potential. This was a lesson I learned from 18-year-old Alima Mbaye, who lives in Thiès, Senegal. Alima and her friends were at a point in their lives where their future and their potential should have been limitless. Instead, malnutrition - and in this case, anemia - was like a brake holding them back.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke had said: "Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent. They must earn less, that's all."

Sex is great, being sexy is great, looking sexy is great. Double standards, not so much. I don't see why a young actress in a magazine article describing her talent and her latest projects must be photographed in her underwear, when a young man in the same situation is photographed in jeans and a shirt.

Throughout my medical training, I have been struck by the failure to better differentiate women from men in terms of our health, risk of disease and drug metabolism. Often, women are contemplated as "mini-men."

Am I a feminist? As I often tell my truly feminist wife: I aspire to be a feminist, but I'm not there yet. Just as I practice law, I am incomplete. I have much to learn, and many miles to go. Perhaps on the day I die, I will be closer to being a feminist. For now, I remain highly imperfect.

In our world, boys take for granted that the world is their oyster. They assume that they can fill any position, aspire to any vocation. They see role models in action every single day of their lives. From the kings and conquerors of history to modern presidents, boys see no inherent obstacles to obtaining high public office.

Exclusivist, sexist and homophobic viewpoints sold in the name of religion must be fully challenged and resisted. Diversity allows for the drowning out of extreme voices. This means Muslim students on campus and Muslims in the community must strive for plurality of religious spaces.
People are realizing that, without the weight of gendered expectations, they can embrace skills, talents and passions irrespective of gender, which benefits individuals, corporations and the world. It is a long way from where we once were, labelled "pink" or "blue" at birth and put into our gender-specific boxes.

Quite simply, the values espoused by Donald Trump and his supporters do not align with the values that are held by the majority of Canadians -- and they certainly do not align with the values that are held by the vast majority of Vancouverites. Bottom line: there is no room for Trump in our city.

In Canada, women remain underrepresented in the STEM fields, making up 22 per cent of the STEM workforce. Women earn nearly half of the bachelor's degrees in science but only a third of the PhDs. They are also underpaid, with a 7.5 per cent wage gap.
Imagine. You, me or anyone else in a democracy deciding that because we are really convinced it's somebody's time, that we can then use our position of power to rig that outcome. How much more tragic when that Presidential candidate may have resulted in a Democrat like Bernie Sanders. Piling on the tragedy is the likelihood that a Sanders presidency could've brought a Democratic majority in the Senate and the House.
