In the era of "having it all," is it now possible for women to pursue their own creativity and have a successful career, remain an engaged and fun mom, have a happy family life while still getting enough sleep in your day? Am I being unrealistic here?
A recent study by Sondre Båtstrand shows what an extreme outlier the modern Republican party is when compared with the conservative parties in nine other democracies with respect to their attitudes about climate change.
College rankings are something parents, students and educators all watch. They offer a snapshot of what each university has to offer and UC Davis has long enjoyed high rankings across the board.

In a recent New York Times article written by Katha Pollitt, she asks those of us who want to keep our rights to have an abortion to speak out. Well, I am a woman who has had two abortions - HEAR ME ROAR!
