Catt Sadler Fights Equal Pay as she Leaves E! News I couldn’t let another minute go by without acknowledging the overwhelming love and support I’ve been receiving the last 24 hours. Leaving E was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made, but your messages and heartfelt comments are comforting and affirm for me that I made the right decision. So many of you have similar stories, similar struggles, legitimate frustrations and I want you to know I hear you and feel for you. As a result, I have a renewed sense of purpose and genuine passion to right the wrongs. We are stronger together and I feel your strength at my core. If I had one ask, it is to please not place blame on my friend Jason Kennedy. He has done right by me in every respect. It hurts me deeply to see that some are vilifying him. I repeat, his hands are tied on this matter and if you’re angry – rightfully so – direct that emotion at the decision makers who failed us, not him. All my love + gratitude 🖤 A post shared by CATT SADLER (@iamcattsadler) on Dec 20, 2017 at 8:17pm PST As the co-host of “Daily Pop” and “E! News,” Catt Sadler shares she had achieved her “dream job.” Yet, this week Sadler also shared that at this level she was not receiving equal pay in comparison to her male counterpart. After waiting months to ask for more money, only to be denied the equal pay, Sadler announced her departure from the network on the air. She has since been active across social media, grateful for the outcry of support from females, stating that she hopes this spotlight exit will bring attention to the grand problem of the gender pay gap. Mindy Kaling Welcomes a Baby Girl Mindy Kaling just had her baby girl and true to her feminist ideals, gave the baby HER last name 🙌🏽 Welcome to the world Katherine Kaling 👶🏾 🍼 🎀 @mindykaling pic.twitter.com/MXfDY2F5jO — Reshma John (@humbleresh) December 20, 2017 Last Friday, the actress gave birth to her first child and fans have been a buzz ever since tagging Kaling in relative memes, quotes and tweets sharing their excitement.

These Women Replacing Charlie Rose Speaks Volumes Earlier this month, PBS announced that Christiane Amanpour would fill its 11 p.m. time slot, after former broadcaster Charlie Rose was accused of sexual assault. As Amanpour’s program aired last week, the network decided to air yet another woman in replacement of Rose, with its addition of Katty Kay. The Washington correspondent will air for the second half of Rose’s abandoned time slot, following Amanpour’s continued programming. Role-Reversal Remake of Overboard Teases With a New Trailer The 1987 original Overboard film stars Goldie Hawn as the damsel saved by Kurt Russell, however, in the remake with Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez, the roles are reversed, resulting in a mix of approval from the original film’s fans. The 2018 version has Derbez as the rich star who falls overboard and loses his memory, rescued instead, by Faris. A coincidence as a sign of the times that women don’t need to be saved? We’ll let you decide. My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing.

Women Launch Campaign to Raise Awareness of Sexual Harassment in UK’s Music Industry Singer Chloe Howl, music manager Yasmin Lajoie, music supervisor Michelle de Vries as well as songwriter and journalist Helienne Lindvall joined forces to create The Stop 2018 campaign to “show respect for female artists.” From calls of action for managers to discourage provocative clothing and flirting with music executives to reminding the necessity of equal pay and reminding of equal opportunities for women artists, The Stop 2018 ends to aim the notorious silence in the UK music industry against predatory and bully behavior. Meryl Streep Takes The High Road EXCLUSIVE: Meryl Streep responds to Rose McGowan’s criticism https://t.co/0hjmum5xKE pic.twitter.com/ME3otCu0hO — HuffPost (@HuffPost) December 18, 2017 After Rose McGowan took to Twitter to accuse “actresses, like Meryl Streep… wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest” as the problem that encourages sexual assault and harassment to be accepted. Streep released a statement to address McGowan’s comments (and since-deleted tweet). Streep wrote a multi-faceted reply that included how it “hurt to be attacked” by McGowan, how she “did not know about Weinstein’s crimes,” how she “wasn’t deliberately silent” and also included an apology to McGowan. It was a tactful response and reminder that women are better when they support one another, with Streep concluding, “we are both, together with all the women in our business, standing in defiance of the same implacable foe.” Belinda Bencic Climbs Her Way Back to the Top Have you been paying attention to @BelindaBencic’s insane comeback? She’s won 28 of 31 matches. She’s also won 4 of 7 tournaments: https://t.co/vb0MgWCEPk pic.twitter.com/dD2ZFsnRwP — Tennis Channel (@TennisChannel) December 21, 2017 The 20-year-old tennis star first made headlines as she entered the Top 10 at just 18-years-old. Yet after this accomplishment, Bencic faced back-to-back injuries that forced her on the sidelines in both 2016 and 2017 and placed her at No. 318 this September, far from her highest pre-injury ranking at No. 7. In the past three months, however, Bencic has made an epic comeback as she returned to the tour and has won 28 of 31 matches, with her most recent international clock-in at No. 74 — moving up 244 spots in three months.

The Guardian Spotlights All-Female Anti-Poaching Agency All female anti-poaching combat unit – in pictures https://t.co/2dc5AqtUiA — The Guardian (@guardian) December 17, 2017 In a series of images, The Guardian reveals the women of Zimbabwe’s anti-poaching unit who “hold the front line.” The photographs depict women training, behind guns, joking with one another, celebrating wins, and of course, coddling their babies–the work they balance with fighting for their country’s wildlife. The photo series showcases a side to anti-poaching that westerners may not realize is a gender-neutral, community effort in heavy poaching areas such as Zimbabwe.
