Women, like 41-year-old mother and five time Olympic swimmer, Dara Torres, made a lot of headlines this year. However, we also made some incredible strides out of the swimming pool. In honor of all those hardworking, won’t take no for an answer kind of bad asses who made those achievements possible, here are the Top 5 Women’s Rights Wins of 2008:
1. Aborted Anti-Choice Legislation: As America enthusiastically voted in Obama, the overwhelming majority also rejected anti-abortion legislation that would have restricted women from their legal right to choose as dictated by Roe v. Wade. Way to go South Dakota, Colorado, and California!
Bristol Palin and her baby daddy Levi Johnston gave birth to healthy boy on Sunday. His name? Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston. Say what? Is that the name of a new nail polish color? Was little Bristol trippin’ when she bought her baby books? Or perhaps she was paying homage to many “famous” “Tripps” on TV and in movies. After the jump, check out some famous “Tripps” that could have inspired Bristol and Levi… Keep reading »
If you buy something at German sex toy shop Condomi, your purchase will be put one of these highly sexual shopping bags. While the person who came up with this was certainly clever, he (I’m guessing it was a he) is a total pervert. But, hey, at least they come in a guy version. [via Glamour] Keep reading »
We get a lot of mail from readers, some insanely flattering, some helpful (thanks for doing a little free copy-editing for us, guys!), and plenty of nasty hate mail. With that in mind, we’re going to post some of the best reader mail we get from time to time, because we totally appreciate that you even take the time to write!
“I’m a normal dude who read one of your articles while on the CNN site — wow, is this stuff a big bag of crazy. It’s like ‘that crazy chick I dated in college’ merged with ‘all that is irrelevant.’ Please, do something worthwhile — volunteer, travel, read a book (not about fashion or ‘guys’), or for god-sakes learn accounting.”
Psst, we were that crazy chick you dated in college — guess you were too drunk to remember. Anyhoo, thanks for reminding us — it’s time for The Frisky’s Daily Math Problem!

The Church of England published draft legislation that would allow for women to be ordained as bishops, an issue that has long divided Anglicans. The proposed measures will go up for debate in February, and there have been threats by more than 1,300 clergy to quite if safeguards are not put in place. Keep reading »
This week, The Frisky will be revealing their oh-so-ambitious resolutions for 2009. We encourage you to submit yours in the comments—maybe you’ll inspire others to adapt the same resolutions and at the very least you’ll get some support. Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can all get behind. Here’s Simcha’s…
1. Learn How To Do A Banana Split: I used to take gymnastics classes as a kid and I could slide into one like it wasn’t no thang. While it was an impressive skill to show off in 1st grade, I have a feeling now a split will earn me extra sexy time brownie points. As a freelance writer who types all day on my cushy-tushy, this is a stretch for a goal. But I fully intend to do it, or injure myself trying!
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight and drop a dress size or two, you may want to reconsider. In a recent poll in the UK of about 3,000 women, size 14s (a US size 12) rated their happiness higher than everyone else, with about a quarter saying they liked their appearance, half reporting career satisfactions, and a third rating their love lives as the best possible. Size 12 women (a US 10) were the second happiest group of women, with nearly three quarters reporting satisfaction with their friendships and almost half satisfied with their careers. Size 8 (US 6), 16 (US 14), and 10 (US 8) rounded out the happy camp, respectively. Nigella Lawson, a TV cook, thinks the secret to curvy girls’ happiness is a pleasurable sex life, saying: “I do think that women who spend all their lives on a diet probably have a miserable sex life: if your body is the enemy, how can you relax and take pleasure?” Still, not all women with curves are happy with their lives. Those who wear sizes 20-24 (US 18-22) were among those who reported being most unhappy with their lives. Maybe dropping a dress size in the new year isn’t such a bad resolution after all?
