The role of women in the workplace has been slowly evolving over the past 60 years. However, in the U.S. and around the globe, much progress remains incomplete in the quest toward equal opportunity and the eradication of sexism in our work, politics and culture. Consider a few glaring examples: Women still earn less than men for the same work, even the U.S. Women's Soccer Team made national headlines this year in their efforts to receive equal pay to their male counterparts. And in politics, more than half of men say they are still "uncomfortable" with the idea of being governed by an elected, female leader.

Conservatives Are Mad At Starbucks Again For Its Holiday-Themed Cup

Some conservatives believe those hands on the cup belong to lesbians, and they aren’t happy.

For the past 20 years, Starbucks has poured its hot coffee into winter-themed cups to celebrate the holiday season, and for the first 17 years, no one seemed to be offended. But in 2015, the coffee giant released a simplistic red cup, and conservatives bashed the company, claiming the Jesus-free design was an example of the fictional “War on Christmas.”
