Record numbers running, challenge for MeToo, future of the left
Male critics are harsher on women-led films
It’s been a good year for women in politics in San Francisco, and Andrea Dew Steele can take some of the credit.
NPR's Lakshmi Singh talks with Palestinian-American Rashida Tlaib, who won her Detroit-area primary last week and runs unopposed in November. She's set to be among the first Muslim women in Congress.
Numbers came easily to Angeline Nanni. As a girl of 12 in rural Pennsylvania during the Great Depression, she kept the books in her father’s grocery store.

Enrolled in beauty school after graduation—cosmetology being one of the few fields open to women in the 1940s—Angie focused on the business side while her sisters, Mimi and Virginia, learned to style hair.

Their bodies and faces are sometimes painted, and they could easily be sporting butterfly wings attached to their backs as they jump around to a loud beat. Upon closer examination, however, the rave scene is offering women more than a just place to let loose and party.
Electronic Dance Music is a genre that is replacing traditional guitars and drums for MIDI Keyboards/Controllers and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) systems. Sounds high-tech?
