'Lenny Letter' dismisses GOP women
While I consistently find myself stuck in an inner battle of liking HBO’s Girls and disliking its lead actress and writer, Lena Dunham, I nonetheless signed up for her “feminist newsletter,” Lenny Letter.

Young people don't vote: Is it your fault?
Young people don’t vote, just like they don’t save for retirement at age 21 or worry about interest rates. That’s what they do because youth isn’t known to plan for the future.

Poll: Millennials favor Socialism over Capitalism
The 2016 presidential election candidates have engaged many typically apathetic young voters to “#FeeltheBern.” While the attention given to our nation’s most important election is generally a positive sign, the reason behind the mass Millennial support of Sanders is alarmingly negative.

Education

Liberal policy wonks love Jeb Bush's college plan
Jeb Bush received praise for his higher education plan, but it might not be the sort that will attract more Republican voters.
