It’s a Depressing Day to Be a Woman

Men, do better.


During the first few hours of my day, I had a chance to read four news stories. Here are three of them.

The other story was about baby food having lead in it. So: Men, go home. If you’re walking on the sidewalk, don’t ask any of the women you pass to smile. And when you get home, don’t give your babies gross food.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
