Saudi Women Demand More Rights!

Saudi Women Demand More Rights!

When it comes to oppression of women, not much surprises me anymore. I can easily pick up a newspaper, glance through a few pages and find several stories of how women still have not achieved the level of dignity they demand. Perhaps, even easier is to focus attention outside the western world — overt, blatant oppression can usually be found […]

Should I Stay or Should I Go: How a Woman Responds to her Husband’s Infidelity under the Lens of Public Scrutiny

Should I Stay or Should I Go:  How a Woman Responds to her Husband’s Infidelity under the Lens of Public Scrutiny

When I first heard that Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger were separating, I wondered what had gone wrong. Then a few hours later, when I learned that he had fathered a child outside of his marriage ten years ago, I understood. Though some in the media were concerned about whether Arnold would continue his action hero franchise and whether Maria […]

Place: Everywhere. Instant Grace abounds. Judgment Day really snuck up on me. Like most Gen-X and Yers, I’ve mildly procrastinated on finishing […]

Changing the Culture Around Pregnancy.

Changing the Culture Around Pregnancy.

I recently read an online article about Kate Hudson and how she hates her figure now that she’s pregnant. While I can relate, I also get a bit frustrated when I read or hear about women who complain about their changing bodies while pregnant. I understand that every woman wants to look attractive, don’t get me wrong, I totally ‘get’ […]

Big and Little- The path to self discovery through helping others

Big and Little- The path to self discovery through helping others

Four years ago, I made a great decision. I had been seeing ads on the ctrain and buses for mentoring, and I finally decided that instead of just thinking about becoming a mentor I would actually figure out how to be one. So I went to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and area, and started the process to becoming […]

Cool Comfortable Clothing.

Cool Comfortable Clothing.

My favorite thing to do when I get home after a long day   of work is slip into some cozy comfortable clothing.   In fact, I am on a constant hunt for anything that will touch my skin with the softness of a warm fuzzy blanket but make me look like I am wearing a   couture high fashion piece. Most recently, […]

Rep. Jackie Speier Inspires at the Professional Business Women’s Conference

Rep. Jackie Speier Inspires at the Professional Business Women’s Conference

On Tuesday 3,100 women gathered at the Moscone Center in San Francisco for the Professional Business Women’s Conference. I was excited about the morning keynote speakers so I sucked it up, woke up early (for me), took what felt like the slowest-train-ever downtown. I skipped the long line at Starbucks (despite being a little bleary eyed) and rushed into Moscone. […]

How Professional Business Women of California are Setting A New Standard For Working Women

This week, I attended The Professional Business Women of California yearly conference. With nearly 3300 attendees and several high profile speakers, I arrived with an empty mind, waiting to be filled with inspiration, direction and power. I hoped the women who have branded themselves to be our leaders would give me just what I needed in understanding how to tackle […]

Don’t Hit a Girl

Don’t Hit a Girl

A good friend of mine and I had a New York moment the other night, when we walked past a screaming fight between a young man and woman. Well, they weren’t just screaming — one guy was holding back the man so he wouldn’t hit the woman. And he did eventually push the woman, at which point she fell on […]

De-funding Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Make Economic or Moral Sense

De-funding Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Make Economic or Moral Sense

I’m fed-up with the inflammatory language surrounding abortion and women’s health issues.   I have no more patience with the “War on Women” crowd than I do with the people who stand outside women’s clinics shouting “baby killers.”   NONE OF YOU ARE ADVANCING THE DEBATE! Nor are you winning anyone over to your way of thinking. Instead, these folks are driving […]
