On Friday, Vice President Kamala Harris will take part in a conversation about “empowering women and girls” with former President Bill Clinton, whom numerous women have accused of sexual misconduct.

The chat will occur during the 13th annual Clinton Global Initiative University meeting, which is being held in partnership with Howard University, Harris’s alma mater.

The Clinton Foundation announced on Tuesday that this year’s meeting will feature: “A one-on-one conversation with President Clinton and Vice President Kamala Harris on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, and empowering women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.”

The one-on-one discussion is set to commence at 3:25 p.m. (Eastern).

Former President Clinton was infamously impeached but eventually acquitted over lying under oath about having a sexual relationship with a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. Over the decades, other women have accused the Arkansas Democrat of sexual misconduct.

On top of that, the former president’s longtime friendship with the deceased financier — and convicted sex offender — Jeffrey Epstein has drawn more scrutiny.

Moreover, according to the Clinton Foundation, the virtual meeting will “bring together 600 students from across the world who have made Commitments to Act — new, specific, and measurable initiatives that address pressing challenges.”

This year’s event, having already started on Tuesday, will run up through Friday. It is being hosted by former President Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and Howard University.

According to the Clinton Foundation, the event will also discuss subjects such as faith in democracy, environmental justice, COVID-19 recovery, and creating systemic change.

Also due to appear at the meeting are former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, and Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D), among others.

American Girl publishes ‘guide’ for girls aged 3-12 on how to transition gender

Parents are furious over a popular doll brand is offering advice to girls as young as three on how to transition their gender. Though a published magazine, American Girl not only advocated for medicines available to “delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender” but supported the notion of making such decisions without parental consent.

“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you” the magazine, titled “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image” writes. It offers readers to “turn to the Resources on page 95 for more information.”

The publication then details what discussions with a doctor could entail: “If you have’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity.”

“If you’ve already gone through puberty, a doctor can still help” it continues. “Studies show that transgender and nonbinary kids who get help from doctors have much better mental health than those who don’t.”

Normalizing body dysmorphia, the book reads “Parts of your body might make you feel uncomfortable, and you might wan to change the way you look. That’s totally OK!”

The Daily Mail notes “earlier this year, its parent company Mattel, recently put a transgender Barbie doll on the market. Before that, American Girl, which sells more than 30 million dolls a year, shilled an Asian doll when anti-Asian hate crimes were skyrocketing across the US.”
