Hillary Clinton Will Be Officially Announcing Her Campaign This Weekend


Hillary Clinton will be officially announcing her campaign for President on Sunday, via Twitter, en route to Iowa. Things have been ramping up for a while — she leased campaign headquarters in Brooklyn and a spate of hirings for campaign advisors. It’s not like we all didn’t know this was happening, of course, and even though I’m not that jazzed about her as a candidate, it is pretty great that America has a serious possibility of having a female head of state.

A new report from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research shows that even though women are outpacing men in education and health care coverage, we are likelier across the board to be living in poverty in the United States. Millennial women are less likely to hold a bachelor’s degree or higher than men, women of color are likelier to be living in poverty than white women, and a whopping 43.1 percent of single mothers are living in poverty.

A woman in the Bronx got married 10 times in 11 years, between 1999 and 2010. She’s currently married to four men, at one point may have been concurrently married to eight, and she got married six times in 2002. This sounds like an actual nightmare. She’s facing felony charges for offering a false instrument for filing and for filing a false marriage application and license, and she faces up to four years in prison, which frankly sounds better than getting married six times in a year.

The street artist behind Stop Telling Women to Smile is hosting a national wheatpasting night on April 17 as part of International Anti-Street Harassment Week. She’s asking people to form groups of 2 or 3 to print out her iconic posters and paste them up around their cities. As she notes, it’s a pretty demanding task for just one person — not to mention, you know, technically illegal — but this is an anti-street harassment event I can get behind. It’ll be so lovely to see her work outside of New York! [STWTS]
