Women and the Law News

Each year, TIME magazine hosts a poll of words to ban in the coming year. It usually includes slang terms and lingo that are overused, and for the most part, this year's list is no different. Words like "obvi" and "turnt" are among those chosen. However, readers have found it puzzling to see that TIME magazine considers "feminism" among its words to ban in 2015. The article's author states she's not opposed to feminism itself, just the overuse of the word. Check out the poll here and read this article for more on the outcry over the inclusion of "feminism".
