Liza Larregui | April 28, 2016 | Women
Why am I writing this to you in an open letter? The world needs to know that you are an amazing human being, making a difference in people's lives. I wouldn't even want to wage a bet on how many lives have been impacted positively by your site, your tweets, and the tremendous work you put into Project UROK.

Let's Stop Referring to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault as 'Women's Issues'

Linda A. Seabrook | April 28, 2016 | Politics
From reproductive rights to paid family leave to sexual and domestic violence, our society neatly categorizes issues where women bear the brunt of the burden as "women's issues," turning them into problems for women and women's rights advocates alone to solve.

A Love Letter to Letters -- Remembering the Mail

Lori Ferraro | April 28, 2016 | Women
Remember that feeling of excitement as a kid when Mom or Dad said these three words: "You've got mail!" Nowadays, those three words make me think about bills I need to pay, crap catalogs I need to recycle and Meg Ryan smirking at Tom Hanks.

You're "Asking For It"

FlockU | April 28, 2016 | College
At 14 years old, and now more than six years later, I still find it ridiculous that women have to worry about how they dress because of the attention it may bring to them. I dress the way I do to make myself feel pretty and powerful, not to get attention from anyone else.

Whitewashing Beyoncé, Or Any Black Woman, Will Never Be OK

Poppie Mphuthing | April 28, 2016 | Black Voices
As part of a global community of journalists and editors who, at least in theory, strive to educate and inform, I was disgusted Thursday to come across a Glamour UK article that in one little gif-filled, navel-gazing story undermined Beyonce's "Lemonade" message.

Women Making Decisions: The Norm, Not the Exception

Atifete Jahjaga | April 28, 2016 | Women
Women have yet to earn their equal share in the society and the right to decide for their lives. Yet I am more than ever confident that we will succeed in making women empowerment a reality everywhere, in every country, in every city and in every village.

I Thought That Infertility Was a White Woman's Disease

Cassandra Jackson | April 28, 2016 | Black Voices
Every time someone mentioned an infertility treatment, I nodded, and then I silently thanked god that I was a black woman and that there was at least one thing that I didn't have to worry about.

The Time Is Now: Why More Millennials Are Choosing World Travel Over Steady Careers

Sarah McArthur | April 28, 2016 | Travel
I moved abroad five years ago at the age of 24. First, it was four years in Germany teaching English while traveling through Europe. When I got tired of the cold weather, my boyfriend and I jetted off to Costa Rica for a new warmer life. Maybe my choices were a bit crazy, but I like to think of them as life affirming.

Why I Dress the Way I Do: The Real Corporate America

Charlene Chinn | April 28, 2016 | Black Voices
My company has an unspoken rule...dress to impress. There is no shortage of buttoned up suits and designer heels. I have even seen a few red bottoms and Jimmy Choos walk through the office floors. On the flip side there are definitely those who come to work on the more "casual" side.

Katherine Ripley | April 28, 2016 | Women
The anti-abortion lobbyists who write these laws think they're protecting the lives of "unborn children," but they have no regard for the lives of the child rape victims whom they are re-raping by forcing them to deliver their abusers' children.
