Although we wish we were no longer in a gender-biased world, there are still many times when girls are expected to act a certain way.

I recently came across the story of an Indian woman named Seema, a mother from a small village in Jharkhand, India.

I am just about finished reading Shonda Rhimes' book, The Year of Yes. And from this day forward, it will be my personal manifesto.
