Road Rage: A Self-Realization

Road Rage: A Self-Realization

I have a confession to make. I think I rage a bit when driving. Well, not like RAGE, but I think I get impatient fast. I’m ashamed to write it down actually, but it’s the honest truth. I guess this roots from a bit of ego… I like to think of myself as a good driver. I don’t speed (although […]

Mommy Time!

Mommy Time!

We mommies can lose confidence in ourselves easily. With so many things to take care of in a day and always being on the go, we often neglect to take valuable mommy time in turn placing our own interests on the back burner. I know friends who hardly have any help with raising their kids, and when they take time […]

Golden Milk- The Cure to Just About Everything.

Golden Milk- The Cure to Just About Everything.

I feel very blessed to come from a family where prevention and natural healing has always been important. My parents have always worked to heal minor conditions such as colds and coughs, and even more serious things like diabetes, naturally. This mind set comes from the fact that they grew up in India and did not have access to the […]

Fareed Zakaria and The World Affairs Council Address Some Big Questions

Recently,   I attended the   World Affairs Council   annual conference held at the St. Regisin San Francisco. The notable keynote speakers for the event were CNN host Fareed Zakaria and Robert Reich, chancellor professor at University of California, Berkeley. Both Zakaria and Reich were tossed into a sold out, over the age of 50 crowd to address the big questions–what are […]

Moroccan Oil is Liquid Gold!

Moroccan Oil is Liquid Gold!

One of the perks of attending events in Hollywood is that often you get a lot of free stuff, stuff that you don’t care about or will never use. Every now and again, I get a product or gift that I fall in love with. This year, it was Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner. I was a little apprehensive about […]

Blaming the Victim is Bad for Men and Women

Blaming the Victim is Bad for Men and Women

We were horrified at L&P, as were most Americans, by the recent reports about the alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl in Cleveland, Texas. Eighteen black men (several underage)   are accused of raping an 11-year-old Latina in an abandoned trailer in this small, Texas town. The incident happened in November, but it’s taken a while for the story to […]

Polygamy and The Women Who Love It.

Polygamy and The Women Who Love It.

I’m addicted to this show on TLC called “Sister Wives.” For those of you who haven’t heard, it’s about a polygamist family, the Browns, who live in Utah. I first heard about this new show on TLC while watching Oprah. The husband and his 4 wives were featured on the show. I was so intrigued because this ‘family’ was not […]

We here at Lipstick and Politics attempt to illuminate various issues that demonstrate that equality between men and women is still an uphill climb for us today. However […]

Paris Fashion Week- What’s Really RTW

Paris Fashion Week- What’s Really RTW

I know spring has barely arrived- in fact, to be completely honest, I haven’t moved into the strong spring colors that graced the runways last fall. I’m still rocking the black with an occasional dip of blue and possibly gray.   So the chance to wear my hot multicolored summer sundresses really does seem to far into the future to imagine. […]

Covering Up.

Covering Up.

After spending 7 weeks with my in-laws in a small village in Punjab, I have decided to re-evaluate how I feel about covering up when nursing my baby. Ever since my son was born (Aug 2007), I have always been private about nursing my kids. If I’m at home with just my mom and husband, I don’t worry about covering […]

Anything You Want to Be?

Anything You Want to Be?

“Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, a good mother, good-looking, good-tempered, well-dressed, well-groomed, and unaggressive.” – Marya Mannes Last weekend I attended an event at the MOMA that consisted of a series of short feminist films.   While all the films were […]

Written by Guest Contributor, Sasha Motalygo Did you ever wonder what happened to the leads in your high school production of Grease? Did the jock playing Kenickie make a future in Hollywood sitcoms? Did that á¹»ber-talented Junior playing Rizzo go on to Broadway fame? If not, perhaps you should have been looking past the leads to the members of the […]
