In his recent address at West Point, President Obama said the U.S. must always be a leader. And yet, leaders of U.S. corporations, so far, have seemed complacent with a lagging status quo.
If a ticket of two women offers economic revival and transformational change based on financial justice championed by Pope Francis, the most popular figure on the world stage, support from women would be stratospheric and many men would join them.
In the United States, women of color frequently experience the double burden of discrimination. They are discriminated against by race and also by gender. The same applies to Roma women in East-Central Europe. And sexism imposes its own double burden, for Roma women must confront not only the prejudices of society as a whole but also discrimination within traditional Roma families.
One of the best solutions to a damaged sense of self-esteem is to go out and date, flirt and see where it goes! I do think the best cure for a broken or wounded heart is to get back into the game and, maybe not find a new love, but the very least, a new lover.
When you break through the illusion that you're at the mercy of your life, you automatically start declaring dominion over it. And that is a beautiful thing.
You must constantly remind yourself that: You. Are. Enough. Step off the wheel of "I'm not enough." And instead, step on the road of creating with what you have at this moment by putting your best efforts forward. After all, I know that my best is, indeed, enough. And so is yours.

Not only do they try to rape their husbands financially but they use the kids as pawns for revenge, which hurts the kids. And it actually hurts you.
This is a no brainer public policy; there is no reason that the United States of America should not ratify this treaty as the world leader on national security and a defender of human rights.
It's been almost a year since the day Wendy Davis arrived on the senate floor in her now famous pink sneakers to bravely filibuster a bill that if passed would have huge implications on reproductive health care in the state of Texas.
I wonder if when women are perceived as being aggressive, it's really just because we're trying to get credit where credit is due. When we're supposedly aggressive while dating, it's because we want to go after what we think we deserve. Is it so bad to try to level the playing field?
Second Chance was founded with an analogous goal. Beyond helping them to survive and recover from physical and psychological wounds, the organization exists to enable survivors to live in total freedom from violent relationships as they pursue their own independent aspirations and dreams.
