Rihanna is one of the nominees for the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards for the Style Star of 2020. She’s a musician, businesswoman and a fashion icon. There’s pretty much nothing she can’t do! Rihanna defines fashion as freedom.

“‘Freedom is the comfortability of a piece and being who you are a thousand percent,” she told E! News in February at New York Fashion Week. “‘Cause I guess there’s a lot of discomfort based on the barriers that society puts on you. What they tell you should be, shouldn’t be, look like, not look like, talk like, dress like and to just be OK with whatever it is that you feel and are. That to me is the ultimate freedom.”

Senator Shares Story Of Wife’s Abortion To Underline Stakes Of Supreme Court Nomination For Women’s Health

Topline

Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) shared in an Elle interview Monday that his wife had an abortion in the late 1980s after doctors warned she was at risk of losing her uterus and possibly dying, saying he came forward because of what is at stake with the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett.

Key Facts

Afghan negotiator: Nobel nomination nod to women’s campaign

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – Afghan peace negotiator Fawzia Koofi is one of four women representing the Afghan government who have been sitting down at the negotiating table with members of the Taliban for talks that began last month in the Arab state of Qatar.

She was also one of 318 candidates – 211 individuals and 107 organizations – nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year, a nomination that Koofi said gave a boost to Afghan women seeking to claim their rightful role in shaping a peaceful future for Afghanistan.

The prestigious award on Friday went to the World Food Program for its efforts to combat hunger in regions facing conflict and hardship at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has driven millions more people to the brink of starvation.

Koofi, a 45-year-old women’s and human rights activist, former member of parliament and survivor of two armed attacks, said the

President Donald Trump speaks next to Judge Amy Coney Barrett at the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, D.C., on September 26, 2020. Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who was nominated Saturday to the Supreme Court, has been criticized by women’s groups for her past rulings on reproductive rights.

Planned Parenthood called her possible appointment to the high court an insult to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy of fighting against gender discrimination. The National Organization for Women has said that Barrett, if confirmed, will “turn back the clock on equality.”

Emily’s List, the political action committee that aims to elect Democratic female candidates in favor of abortion rights, echoed the view that Barrett’s nomination is a threat to women’s rights.

Amy Coney Barrett nomination is a victory for conservative women

Karin A. Lips, Opinion contributor
Published 5:00 a.m. MT Sept. 29, 2020

There is a strong pressure for conservative women to self-censor our views, lest we be mocked or stereotyped. But we have to be ready to fight back.

After interning in the summer of 2004 for my home state senator in Washington, D.C., I returned to the University of Virginia looking for a group of women who wanted to talk about the issues of the day and welcomed a more conservative perspective. There was a women’s club, a Women’s Studies department, and even a Women’s Center at UVA. But, because I am a conservative woman, my ideas were not fully welcome at the traditional women’s institutions on campus.

I started the Network of enlightened Women, known as NeW, that fall as an intellectual home for conservative women on campus. At the time, modern feminists routinely questioned and dismissed my
