More Than Just 'Bright Young Things': Victoria's Secret and the Obsession With Youth

Bras in my size are cheerfully doodled over with hearts, flowers and little cupcakes that would inspire Katy Perry to write a hit song right there in the dressing room. My breasts are offended. They know what they are and they are not part of a Fisher Price play set.

Perhaps I'm biased, but Chicago is a special place for women. The women who hail from this city are more than historic; they are change agents.

Girls Rising

If religion is just a scapegoat, who has the power to use it that way? Are those people keeping their girls down because they don't think girls could meaningfully contribute, because they're afraid of the competition, because they don't know who would take care of their children?

Millennials Aren't All Girls

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Girls is not its content, but its creator. Love her or hate her, Dunham at 26 typifies the ability and power of this generation. You might say this is a generation with more Lena Dunhams than Hannah Horvaths.

Girls Needs to Glance Away From the Mirror

Sally Steenland | Posted 05.23.2013 | Women
Sally Steenland

There's another aspect of Girls that feels worth noting -- its uniform worldview. Both the worlds of Girls and the one of my religious childhood are insular and tribal. Both have moral codes that seem to the inhabitants to be universally true while in actuality they are culturally specific.

Girl Power -- But at What Cost?

Dr. Peggy Drexler

While girl power, the movement that began in the early 90s, has aimed to empower many young girls to be ambitious, assertive, and self-reliant, that girl power as interpreted on TV and in film is slowly but surely seeping into our streets as something more sinister.

Women as a whole have made great strides towards equality, but the fact remains that too many girls in the developing world live in circumstances that are unfair at best, and dangerous at worst.

Raising Our Boys to Resist Rape Culture

I feel challenged by what it means to raise boys against the backdrop of what is becoming our rape culture. How do I teach my sons to understand and respect girls when there is a larger culture and marketplace that shamelessly hyper-sexualizes very young girls?

Regardless of how it happens, it only takes a few seconds for curious children to get into medicine that could make them very sick or worse. That's why it's important to take a look around your house to make sure all medicines and vitamins are up and away and out of sight.

Not Getting It 'Together'

Sunday night's Girls season finale, "Together" was full of many things: breakups, make-ups, haircuts, sex scenes, legal drama, hypochondria and cotton balls. There was only one thing missing: the truth.

"Muslim Sisterhood" Endorses More Robust Effort on Gender Violence/Discrimination

Calls for change ironically resulted in a reactionary response toward women, a reversion to a diminished status. Did the Muslim Brotherhood seek to dampen the breadth and depth of the Conference's outcome, at least as it could apply to Egypt and other Arab states?

That was a rough ride, "Girls" fans, but if the last 30 minutes of Season 2 are any indication, things may just be looking up for the the fictional Brooklynites we know and love ... or maybe love to hate.

Why 'Girls' Didn't Have A Happy Ending

Christopher Rosen | Posted 04.30.2014 | TV
Christopher Rosen

Except while the images were happy, the underlying themes were not: Hannah, Adam, Marnie and Charlie are all back to square one. Any personal gains they've made in the year that the show has depicted were erased with one single montage. It was "Girls" as "The Graduate": the characters won the battle, but lost the war.
