Dear Media Core: Axing Access to Contraception = More Pregnancies!

Melissa S. Grant | February 9, 2016 | Women
Cutting the funding to Planned Parenthood will do nothing to curb the need for abortion. Education and contraception could curb unintended pregnancy rates, but that's what Planned Parenthood does.

More than the Sum of Her (Reproductive) Parts

Robyn Norton | February 9, 2016 | Women
Women and men are different -- disease impacts them differently and health systems respond differently. Understanding those differences will help us deliver treatment and prevention options that take those differences into account.

Why Love Is a Good Business Strategy

Kimberly Inskeep | February 9, 2016 | Women
It can be downright provocative to talk about love in a business context. The famous phrase derived from The Godfather, "It's not personal -- it's business," has led many to think business is purely transactional and sentiment should play no part (let alone the big "L" word). But I believe business can be deeply personal -- and when it is, business gets better.

In or Out? Why Men Don't Commit

David Wygant | February 9, 2016 | Women
When a man is on the fence about a woman, he'll keep you on the other side of that fence. He's not going to pull you over to his side of the fence until you either do something, or he has to make a decision.

The Healing Power of Sisterhood

20 Beautiful Women | February 9, 2016 | Women
There is something oh so powerful about sisterhood. The wounds that block others from seeing your inner light connects you to your soul sisters even more, because they can see the REAL you--even in your darkest moments.

Dear Ms. Steinem: Were You Having a Bad Day?

Rena Cohen-First | February 9, 2016 | Women
The other day I was horrified to see your comments about young girls voting for Bernie to find boys. Horrified, not for Bernie or Hillary, but for the damage that you may have just done to our ability to pass along our reverence of you to our daughters.

When You Ask Me To Vote For Hillary

Robyn Morton | February 9, 2016 | Politics
To vote for her in the primaries, I would need to believe that the establishment on both the right and the left have so thoroughly strangled the political system that it is no longer "reasonable" to even try for reform.

Jessica Bolanos | February 9, 2016 | Black Voices
There are so many levels to Formation that those of us who felt it, really feel it. There really isn't (that) much to joke about. Or waste time hating on.

How Will The Rising Tensions in the Middle East Affect Girls' Rights in the Regions?

Joelle Wyser-Pratte | February 9, 2016 | Women
Flying under the radar of male-dominated societies, most people are unaware of the plight of females in Saudi. Nor, then has the consideration been given to the ripple effect it has on young girls. For example, did you realize that women in Saudi Arabia cannot open their own bank account without the permission of their husbands? Or that they were just given the right to vote in local elections?

Press Mute for Gun Control in New Hampshire

Nora Dunn | February 9, 2016 | Politics
Why are Iowa and New Hampshire litmus tests for the nomination? Neither of these states represents the diversity of America, nor shares many of the concerns of states with big urban centers. People in New Hampshire are not only lining up at the polls, they are lining up to learn...

Finding Mom Friends Is Like Dating All Over Again

Jennifer Petro-Roy | February 9, 2016 | Parents
We flit in and out of each other's lives like acquaintances at a cocktail party, stopping just long enough to compliment a fancy dress or a particularly elaborate hairstyle.

Will Cosby and Lieb Be the Exceptions or the Turning Point?

Michele Beaulieux | February 9, 2016 | Crime
The reason some people are above the law is because of advice like Nussbaum's. She doubts people will stand up to power and tells survivors that seeking justice is futile. Nussbaum is wrong. Some people will stand up -- sometimes at great personal cost -- and survivors can find justice.

Getting Married Is Not an Accomplishment

Natalie Brooke | February 9, 2016 | Weddings
Three months ago, my then-boyfriend, Craig, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I cried with excitement. After all, it was a huge moment in my life that was exceptionally exciting, special and celebration-worthy. But is it an accomplishment? No.

A Letter to the Dog Who is Clearly NOT Mine

Lisa R. Petty | February 9, 2016 | Women
Let's just be honest.  You are not MY dog.  So, stop following me around like we are BFF's.  We aren't, OK?  Don't get me wrong; I don't HATE you or anything.  You're a sweet dog; I just like the cats better.

Is Putin a Cockroach?

Nadya Tolokonnikova | February 9, 2016 | World
My country is placing me in a position where I become a hurricane blazing through everything in my path. Just one month passed by and dozens of people lost their jobs, were told off by their bosses, got reported on. Now they are all unemployed.
