Bethesda, Maryland – May 15, 2018
Thank you, Dr. Collins, for your work to improve human health, including the Human Genome Project and the “All of Us” Precision Medicine Biobank. And thank you all for making me feel so welcome.
NIH is known for its world-renowned trailblazing medical research. The closest thing I have to a medical credential is my role in What’s Up, Doc?
So I’m honored to have been invited to speak about my work for gender equity … Read more »

Women are now proving they are powerful when they stick together and are unafraid to speak truth to power… unafraid to stand arm in arm with EVERY American and find a way forward together. Many of us were at the history-making march last year when Donald Trump was inaugurated, and we were hoping against hope that some good would come out of this Administration. Unfortunately, day-by-day, Trump has provided us – – both by his actions and … Read more »

Here’s a terrible fact—
There has not been a single woman who has won the Golden Globe for Best Director since I was fortunate enough to win it for Yentl in 1984…that’s 34 years ago! Not right!
More women should be directing!
In my humble opinion, I was very disappointed that director Dee Rees and her powerful film Mudbound wasn’t even nominated.
I also would have liked to see director Patty Jenkins and her exciting film Wonder Woman be recognized

Thank you Alabama for giving our country a great Hanukkah present by electing Doug Jones.
Now we can have fun watching McConnell blame Bannon; FOX News blaming McConnell; and waiting to see who blames Trump and who he blames, fingers pointing in all directions. Of course, we will have to watch McConnell push the obscene tax vote before Jones is seated.
Nonetheless, this is a huge statement combined with the Virginia election a few months ago that bodes very well … Read more »

Last night, voters signed a referendum against Donald Trump and his regressive and divisive policies. His unpopularity and the resistance from activists helped fuel Democratic victories across the nation. The victories had both breathe and depth from school boards and city councils to Governor’s mansions.
The most watched election was in Virginia where Democrat Ralph Northam far exceeded late polling to win a resounding victory for Governor. Democrats swept the other statewide offices in the state including … Read more »

It’s a natural quality for women to nurture, and we should hold on to that generosity of spirit.
At the Women in Film luncheon in 1992, I spoke about the skewed perception of women in relation to men. I shared my thoughts on how language gave us an insight into the way women were viewed in a male-dominated society:
A man is commanding—a woman is demanding.
A man is forceful—a woman

What happened to make Donald Trump so reflexively cruel?
Henry Kissinger once pondered a question about President Richard Nixon, “Can you imagine what this man would have been like if somebody had loved him?” This brings up the debate about the role of nature and nurture in the development of one’s personality and makes one wonder about Donald Trump. Why is he so insecure that he has to lie at every occasion about

Demand that your government faces the facts.
These latest hurricanes really hit home for me, because I started my last tour in Houston and ended in three cities in Florida – the last being Miami.
But the question is – what is causing so many violent storms?
Fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas create heat–trapping emissions in the atmosphere, warming the planet. The oceans are warming as well – and the … Read more »

The Editorial Board – The New York Times.
Donald Trump and other embattled Republican candidates are resorting to a particularly bizarre and dangerous tactic in the closing days of the campaign — warning that they may well seek to impeach Hillary Clinton if she wins, or, short of that, tie her up with endless investigations and other delaying tactics.
Of all the arguments advanced by the Trump forces, this has to be among the most preposterous. In effect, what they’re … Read more »

The election is just five days away, and something truly frightening is happening, something with far-reaching implications for the immediate future of American politics. Republicans, led by Donald Trump but by no means limited to him, are engaging in kind of termite-level assault on American democracy, one that looks on the surface as though it’s just aimed at Hillary Clinton, but in fact is undermining our entire system.
I know, my conservative friends will say that this kind of talk … Read more »

And it was a long time coming.
By Charles P. Pierce – Esquire.
(Optional Video Accompaniment To This Post)
Of all the astonishing things in an astonishing (and increasingly grim) presidential campaign, the sudden involvement of elements of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the act of ratfcking a candidacy is even more amazing than the fact that there is a vulgar talking yam one step away from running almost the entire federal government. There hasn’t been a hotter hot … Read more »

Editorial Board – The Washington Post.
AS THE 2016 presidential campaign draws to a close, Donald Trump is airing commercials that present him as a change agent who will shake up Washington. Not a mainstream politician, exactly, but nothing to be afraid of, either. This appeal seems to be having some success, as Mr. Trump pulls even with his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, in some national polls and surpasses her in likely voters’judgment on who is more trustworthy.
Ultimately, though, … Read more »

There are only a handful of days until Election Day and an end to this phase of a nation’s — and the world’s — ebb and flow of anxiety. The day after the votes are cast and counted that anxiety will either dissipate or become a fixed feature. Which of these it will be is very much in flux.
While Hillary Clinton still maintains a lead in the polls and a … Read more »

Weiner or no Weiner, Hillary Clinton is likely to be our next president.
But she can’t seem to escape insatiable men.
She married one — for better, for “bimbo eruptions,” for two terms in the White House, for impeachment.
She’s in the climactic week of a grotesque battle with another. If she prevails, his boasts of sexual aggression will partly be why.
And if she fails? Again there’s a priapic protagonist. The F.B.I. … Read more »

How should voters weigh the sins of these two uniquely corrupt candidates?
As late as last week, voters on both sides were united in the sincere belief that the candidates had litigated all relevant points of disagreement, explained their differing visions for the nation, and revealed the true measure of their characters. As we began to wrestle with our fateful decision, we believed we had all the information we needed. All that was left was

Office of Special Counsel received complaint against Comey and says ‘in general’ it opens cases into allegations of interfering with elections.
By publicly discussing a renewed investigative focus on Hillary Clinton, the FBI director, James Comey, has placed himself in the crosshairs of a federal inquiry into whether he has interfered in an election, the Guardian has learned.
The Office of Special Counsel (OSC), an independent federal investigative agency, cited longstanding policy in … Read more »

To clarity misinformation in a story issued by local Los Angeles television station, KABC, the nature of cloning occasionally results in the birth of a litter rather than a single animal. The cloning procedure in this case resulted in a litter of four beautiful puppies, three of which survived. The KABC story was inaccurate in it’s headline which stated that Ms. Streisand had had beloved Coton de Tuléar, Samantha, cloned twice. The fact is that in using the DNA of … Read more »

After putting out an article (on this website) about how fake news gets almost double the tweets than real news, I felt really sad. Why are people so drawn to insults and negativity? Why do fake stories sell more than true ones ? Is it human nature? It was disconcerting to see, in an article about me, how an anecdote about “the boys club” on a set gets turned into a vicious piece of nonsense. I was talking about a … Read more »

When I do an interview, I like to be quoted accurately. I also expect the truth to be told, with facts checked.
This is why I’m reluctant to give interviews without having quote approval. In last week’s Variety article, they mistakenly made it sound like I didn’t want to be in Funny Girl! What??? I fought hard for that part! How could they make that mistake? I loved the character of Fanny Brice (they even misspelled her name Franny).… Read more »

Larry Kramer does not need me to publicize his beautiful play. It stands on its own. For the last time – I will answer his complaints, which rewrite history.
When I saw the play in 1985 I was very moved and immediately contacted Larry to acquire the rights. After going through several drafts with Larry, I hired another writer to develop a screenplay that was faithful to Larry’s play — but adapting it to make it more cinematic. It was … Read more »
