Women have been waiting for this Election Day for the last four years

Moving forward requires focus. Mashable’s Social Good Series is dedicated to exploring pathways to a greater good, spotlighting issues that are essential to making the world a better place.

For the last four years, millions of women have lived in a perpetual state of rage. 

In November 2016, they watched reality TV star Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, even after the public heard him admit that he assaults women he finds attractive. “Grab ’em by the pussy,” he said on the Access Hollywood tape, bragging about treating women however he pleased. 

Since that moment, many liberal and moderate women have been horrified, then galvanized, by one trauma after the next. 

From the widespread disclosure of sexual abuse and assault that gave rise to the #MeToo movement, to abortion bans that threatened to effectively eliminate access in several states, to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, to the separation of

In Leadup to Election, More Women, Young People Say They Won’t Vote: Poll

An increasing number of women and young people say they do not plan to vote as November’s election quickly approaches, according to a new poll.

The Hill/HarrisX poll released Friday found that 6 percent of voters aged 18 to 34 said they would not vote, compared to 4 percent in the same poll from one week earlier. The number of women who said they did not plan on voting was 5 percent, moving from 3 percent the previous week.

Although a large majority of younger voters taking part in the poll said they would vote in the election, they were still the least likely of all age groups to indicate they would participate on both weeks of polling. An even number of women and men, 3 percent, said they would not vote in last week’s poll.

This week’s poll was conducted online among 2,841 registered voters between October 3

Domestic Model Portfolio Could Shine After Election Day

How riskier assets perform following Election Day remains to be seen, but some market observers believe the safest bet will remain domestic stocks.

Advisors can tap into that theme with WisdomTree’s Core Equity Model Portfolio, which is part of the issuers broader suite of Modern Alpha model portfolios.

“This model portfolio is designed for growth-oriented investors with a long-term horizon looking to maximize long-term potential for capital growth through a globally diversified set of equity ETFs,” according to WisdomTree.

Over the near-term, more fiscal stimulus could boost the case for this model portfolio.

“The economic recovery has leveled off following a strong initial rebound. For the past several months, equities have traded in tandem with the likelihood for further fiscal stimulus and have stagnated as the outlook for such stimulus has dimmed,” according to WisdomTree research.

How 2020’s Pandemic And Election Are Impacting Women’s Small Business

October is National Women’s Small Business Month, meaning this is the time we should be celebrating the success and accomplishments of women business owners everywhere. But this October, small business owners are feeling anything but celebratory. The pandemic has wreaked havoc on businesses of all size, and women owners are feeling the devastation of COVID-19.

A recent study of 522 women small business owners across the 15 most populous states found 54% feared they’d have to close their doors for good because of COVID-19.

The study, commissioned by Groupon and conducted by OnePoll, aimed to understand how women small business owners are meeting the challenges COVID-19 presents. Not surprisingly, 75% of women-owned small businesses have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. A fifth said they either plan to or already

Female vote key but policies lacking in New Zealand election

By Praveen Menon

WELLINGTON (Reuters) – New Zealand’s upcoming general election has the rare distinction of providing a choice of two female candidates as the country’s next leader in a poll that could be decided by the female vote.

Yet there is growing criticism that neither incumbent Jacinda Ardern nor challenger Judith Collins have policies to address the fact that women – who make up half the 5 million population – have been disproportionately negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

“There has been a frightening silence, to be honest,” said Lisa Lawrence, President for the National Council of Women.

Some analysts believe the oversight could cost Ardern, who polls show is on track to win the election, a chance to become the country’s first leader to govern outright since electoral reform in the 1990s, rather than as part of a coalition.

Alarm bells pealed in August when official data showed

The toy company unveiled a new Susan B. Anthony Barbie doll last week as a part of its line of inspiring women.

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House in Rochester, New York, officially unveiled the doll on October 1. It appeared on Mattel’s website on Monday.

“We were delighted that the design team from Mattel reached out to us early in the project, demonstrating their interest in a doll and packaging that would reflect Susan B. Anthony’s life and work,” Deborah L. Hughes, president & CEO of the Anthony Museum, said in a news release.

“You can almost hear her speak, ‘Yes, your honor, I have many things to say.’ She is still

The White House gift shop sells coins commemorating Donald Trump defeating COVID-19 and winning election

Talk about premature congratulations.

The White House Gift Shop is already selling coins that commemorate US President Donald Trump defeating COVID-19 — and winning the election.

The gift shop was set up in 1950 but is not the official gift shop of the seat of the Whitehouse.

The coin, which is available for pre-order, is called “President Donald J. Trump Defeats COVID” and is the “final commemorative coin for President Trump’s first term”.

Coin designer and series creator Anthony Gianni said its design was “informed by superhero graphic art”.

“Surrounding President Donald J. Trump is a mythos never before seen in a United States president, a mythos not unlike the Epic of Gilgamesh,” he wrote on The White House Gift Shop site.

“Thus I am pleased to announce a new commemorative that vividly shows President Trump’s historic presidential candidacy win, itself, from his descent on the elevator in Trump Tower,

You’re worried about a pandemic, the election and a safe Halloween. Are you ready to start holiday shopping?

Generations of families have kicked off the holiday season in Chicago with a trip to Macy’s —formerly Marshall Field’s — store on State Street, peeking at animated window displays before visiting the 45-foot-tall, 3,000-pound decorated tree at the center of the Walnut Room restaurant.

The coronavirus pandemic won’t stop a tradition that began 113 years ago: The Walnut Room, closed since March, opens Nov. 7. But where diners used to stand in a rope line to wait for a table, this year, they will need to plan ahead.

Biden Beauty Brand Makeup Sponge For 2020 Election

No, Joe Biden did not launch a beauty brand in the middle of his campaign. That might seem obvious, but a mysterious new brand called Biden Beauty just debuted today. It’s aimed at rallying the influential beauty community to vote blue through cheeky branded products and merch.

Created by anonymous beauty industry insiders, Biden Beauty just launched with one product: a dual-ended blue makeup sponge called the Biden Beat retailing for $20.20. The sponge can be used for foundation, concealer, powder, you name it. Three other beauty products (including something Kamala-inspired) will debut in the coming weeks, as well as merch including hoodies, hats, and stickers. “Let’s cancel out orange for good, the only way beauty knows how—with color-correcting blue,” reads the brand release.
