The Nickname Hillary Clinton Has Been Waiting For — You could practically see the T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase before it left Donald Trump's mouth on Wednesday night: "Such a nasty woman." The hashtag #nastywoman started trending almost immediately on Twitter. "From one nasty woman to another, you were an inspiration last night," Nancy Pelosi tweeted at Clinton.

After Donald Trump, Will More Women Believe Their Own Stories? — A week ago, it would've seemed wildly unlikely to most people that Donald J. Trump, not Hillary Clinton, would be the candidate more likely to provoke a culture-wide shift in how we think of and talk about sexual assault.

Was it a Depressing Week in Politics for Women, or a Satisfying One? — And even as Hillary quietly worked this weekend to position the Trump tape to her maximum advantage, do you think she ever wondered to herself: How many national debates about inappropriate male behavior can one woman live through? Dear Jodi, I am no psychologist, although we're all sort of Clintonologists these days, and may have been since 1992.

Donald Trump: King of the Old Boys’ Club, and Perhaps Its Destroyer — "Lewd" was apparently not a strong enough word for the editors of The Washington Post when they tried to describe the contents of a recording they had acquired, in which Donald J. Trump is heard in a 2005 conversation with Billy Bush, the Access Hollywood host; they went with " extremely lewd " in their headline.

The Reverse-Gaslighting of Donald Trump — When I watch Donald Trump, I sometimes feel like Ingrid Bergman - not European and glamorous, but unnerved, as though I'm being gaslit, as in the famous plot of her old classic movie " Gaslight." The lights are flickering, but her character's husband, who is secretly a seriously bad dude, is convincing her that no such thing is occurring.

Gennifer Flowers, Donald Trump and the Making of the Sex-Scandal Culture — On Saturday, Donald Trump once again used his Twitter feed to kick up a news microcycle when he tweeted that if Mark Cuban, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and occasional Trump nemesis, was going to attend the debate, "perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!"

Why Is Sarah Jessica Parker Following Me? — Times Insider delivers behind-the-scenes insights into how news, features and opinion come together at The New York Times. In this piece, Susan Dominus, a staff writer for The Times Magazine whose profile of Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of Sunday's Arts & Leisure section, muses on some eerie similarities between the trappings of her own life and those of the leading TV characters Ms. Parker has played over the last two decades.

Clinton Plays It Frosty Between the Ferns — Yesterday, Hillary Clinton arguably had one of her most effective public appearances in months, and it happened on the website Funny or Die. Clinton appeared as a guest on " Between Two Ferns " with Zach Galifianakis, a semi-aggressive, extremely rumpled comedian and sort-of talk show host who makes David Letterman look painfully earnest by comparison.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Leaving Carrie Behind With HBO’s ‘Divorce’ — Sarah Jessica Parker was waiting for a menu at a restaurant in Hastings-on-Hudson, a Westchester County suburb of New York, when a 50-something man in a polo shirt and shorts showed up at her table.
