I'd like to call attention to the nurturing of our creative and professional selves, an aspect not always so well attended to. We always hear about the proverbial "boy's club" in business, politics, and the professional arena -- can we do a sound check on our "sisterhood" -- can we say the same?

I'm not the health-chick who can order a three-leaf salad for lunch and be too full to pack in another bite. I'm the one who reaches for the dessert menu as soon as her stretch jeans hit the cushioned seat of the booth and orders her entrée by saying, 'Whatever goes with the 'Death by Chocolate'.'

I was taken back to childhood days of dancing and singing along to the radio with my older sister, Danielle. There is -- and always will be -- something magical about sharing the dance floor with the person who has been able to finish your sentences.

My sister Ann passed away, without warning, on the morning of Oct. 9, 2008. An undiagnosed heart condition, hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, took her life. How could that be?

Like Elsa, Claire was born with something that makes her different. Something that puts her life at risk, something that many might think she should be ashamed of or at least try to conceal and minimize as much as possible.

Take some time to thank the women in your life who are supportive and who believe in you. And remember, it's not just about surrounding yourself with lots of women. It's about having a sisterhood.

Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, girlfriends, co-workers, neighbors... perhaps the key to balancing life lies in how we relate to one another as women.

What's YOUR Excuse for Bashing Other Moms?

Mara Shapiro | Posted 05.17.2014 | Parents
Mara Shapiro

I cannot deal with how women are using social media to bring each other down. Why does everything have to become a thing, an issue, a point of contention? Why is it that the second someone puts "mother" in their title, they become free game for attacks from the crowd?

How Are You Hustling?

If deep down we believe that we're not enough as we are, we do everything we can to prop up our self-esteem and avoid feeling that pain. So instead of doing the inner work to heal the wound, we simply hustle for our worth.

Federiga Bindi

Oggi, sull'onda dello sconcerto per gli attacchi al Presidente Boldrini, il momento è propizio. Trasformiamo lo sdegno in legislazione. C'e' bisogno di una legislazione che tuteli le vittime di harassment sessuale o morale.

As you get older, your universe (not the universe, mind you) may become even more ordered, stripped in a million small places of its magic, as if the petals of an infinitely inconceivable flower wilt away to reveal the still-beautiful-but-perhaps-less-mysterious bloom below. And so, here are my year-end wishes for you, my girls, while you still inhabit this tender space.

Ladies-should-do-and-know lists just feel like another way to keep score against one another, one of those false boosts to our confidence (or weirdly devastating moments of existential crisis) that can only happen on the Internet.

A Letter to My Daughter: 3 Tools She Needs in Her Arsenal When it Comes to Women

Melissa Chapman | Posted 12.07.2013 | Parents

Being that my womb is no longer open for procreation -- thereby making it IMPOSSIBLE to give my daughter a sister -- I figure at the very least I can jot off a life list that -- should she choose to -- she can carry with her, as a reminder that she is not alone in her thoughts and her strength needs to come from within.
