  • President Obama says he is "deeply disappointed that a minority of Senators have prevented the Paycheck Fairness Act from finally being brought up for a debate and receiving a vote."
  • A new site allows women to easily create temporary phone numbers that link to their cellphones, so they can change it without a sweat if that gentleman caller turns out to be a creepster.
  • File under Things That Made Me Cry Today: A study finds that even preschool girls are deeply invested in being thin.
  • "Young women often used alcohol to 'transgress social norms' of being female, then found themselves drunk and prey to the sexual advances of one or more young men," according to a study sponsored by the Australian government.
