What Hillary Needs To Do Differently To Win This Time

What Hillary Needs To Do Differently To Win This Time

So Hilliary Clinton’s campaign theme is Go Bold. I have to say, I think this is a good approach for her. The perception that she needs to shake is that she’s a career politician, unwilling to make, well, bold changes. It’s simple and direct (which makes it hashtag friendly, and we all know how important that is). My hope is […]

Here’s What Scripture Can Teach Us About Feminism

Here’s What Scripture Can Teach Us About Feminism

I was brought up in a church that was foundationally a hetero-patriarchy. It taught old-time religion, and its own form of oppression. It would be foolish to say that none of those ideas were internalized; it would be foolish to say that I have not come a long way. And it would also be foolish to say that religion is […]

How To Have Great Style On A Budget

I know I’m the epitome of what a fashion blogger shouldn’t be in this post- chubby, with undone messy hair, but mostly recycling the same accessories over and over. If it works for multiple wears, I’m more likely to purchase it. When I don’t feel well, I’ve learned it takes just as long to put on a t shirt and leggings as […]

What Now? Post Pao Sexism In Silicon Valley.

What Now? Post Pao Sexism In Silicon Valley.

Ellen Pao may have lost in court, but her case raises serious issues about sexism and promotion policies in Silicon Valley. After several days of deliberations recently, a San Francisco Superior Court jury came to a conclusion in Ellen Pao vsa. Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The gender discrimination trial began with a lawsuit filed in May 2012 and culminated […]


Can A Housewife Be A Feminist?

Can A Housewife Be A Feminist?

One of the pettiest, silliest, most outdated arguments I hear among feminists is this one: “Housewives aren’t living up to feminist ideals, because they’re just fitting the patriarchal stereotype of the supportive little woman doing everything for everyone else and not having an identity of her own.” “Nuh-uh!  I’m a stay-at-home mother and I consider it a full-time job, plus […]

Making Sense of the “78 Cents to a Man’s Dollar” Wage Gap

Originally published on Everyday Feminism.   There’s been a lot of conversation in the last year about equal pay and the gender wage gap. Congress has considered, failed to pass, and considered and failed to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act over and over again. President Obama, to do his own part in tackling the problem, has signed two executive orders with the goal […]

It’s Tough To Be Female

There are all these preconceived notions about women in our society that cannot be easily changed because the definitions of strength, weakness, woman, and man are  so deeply sown in the history of humanity. And these definitions […]

4  Subtle Ways Women Face Sexism At Work

In an article for New York Magazine, Annie Lowry explained that, what women most often deal with at work is “sexism you can’t quite prove” — a casual decision by your male boss to criticize your assertiveness (and come on now, is that actually something a man would ever be criticized for?), an expectation that as a woman you’ll be […]

Judd Apatow’s ‘Trainwreck’ Inverts Gender Norms, Yields To Rom-Com Clichés

Writer Amy Schumer and director Judd Apatow invert the tired gender roles of the classic “playboy doesn’t believe in love but ends up with his soul mate” storyline in their hilarious new movie “Trainwreck.” Unfortunately, though interesting, this gender play is the only new change to an otherwise stale formula. Regardless, Schumer and Apatow make quite a humorous pair, and […]

Five Ways The 2016 GOP Race Is Like This Season Of The Bachelorette

For years I have not given any time to the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, because it all seemed so cheesy to me. Granted we all have our own favorite television junk food (I’ve been watching General Hospital for almost thirty years); it just hasn’t been a concept that really interested me. That is, until this year. I heard that Kaitlyn, the Bachelorette, […]

These 7 Common Assumptions About ‘Promiscuous’ Women Police All Women’s Sexuality

If there’s one thing our sexist society loves to do, it’s piling onto women who dare to have an enjoyable sex life.

Women with sexual agency are very threatening to the status quo because they not only flip gendered scripts, but they also represent the unraveling of […]
