In this day and age, (especially at my age!) with the influx of baby boomer women reaching their mid-life years, it's about time someone finally got smart and opened a restaurant specializing in issues exclusive to menopausal females. Women come to these establishments for a little R&R, hence their name -- "Rest-or-Rants!"
In today's global business climate, women continue to strive to breakthrough barriers that keep them from achieving their professional potential -- their male counterparts need to step up to the plate to help them get there.
I was 12 years old during the historic Year of the Woman in 1992. I remember the sense of hopefulness my Mom and her feminist friends had as they talked about the possibilities for discussion, action and policy around women's equality.
The slight chill in the air has me dreaming of scarves, boots and leather moto jackets. As we transition our closets to fit the change in season, we must do the same with our nail lacquer.
The goal of the NFL policy should be to stop violence against women -- not to punish perpetrators to turn down the heat when a high-profile case causes a public relations nightmare.
Think about the ways you have personally said or you have heard someone else say, "No." Do they lead in with a huge apology? Do you give a three-minute explanation (often to a complete stranger) about why you simply cannot do (fill in the blank)?
These are our sisters, our mothers, our daughters and our friends. These are real women who deserve to feel safe in their own homes. Let us all take on the important task of teaching our brothers, our fathers and especially our sons that violence is never a part of any solution.
Being employed and balancing a family can be one of the most difficult challenges of working mothers but it won't just happen, you need to step off this terrifying treadmill. Trust that it can also be the most satisfying experience.
Let's live. Let's not feel pressured "to act our age" or embarrassed if we act older than the age we are. Let's not be ashamed of it or hide from it or mutter the number quietly. Let's be proud of our age, no matter how young or old. Right now. Today. This year. And every year we get.
My daughter's view of herself and her place in this world will first be shaped at home. But the world she encounters online, in television, print and music will also have an influence on her perception of self and others.
Don't get too drunk at a party. Don't walk home alone. Don't leave home without your date rape nail polish. Men, when they are addressed, are generally urged to "intervene" in sticky situations (at least until the nail polish dries). In this system, the blame for rape indirectly falls on the careless victim rather than on the abuser.
No matter how expensive shoes are or how high or low the heel height is, over time women's feet will start to scream help because of the lack of arch support provided and the way their foot structure is designed. By purchasing the proper arch support, it will allow you to wear the shoes you love to wear more comfortably and expand your shoe horizons!
Listen Up Ladies of a Certain Age. You know, you 40 to 60-year-old women. Midlife Ladies. What I see and hear you doing when you are public speaking and in social situations has got to stop.
