Career Versus Motherhood: Should Women Choose Between The Two?

Marianna Glynska | September 24, 2016 | Women
Being a woman, I feel lucky to be living in the twenty-first century, the time that gives much more opportunities for women. It's hard to imagine nowadays that it wasn't always like that, and there were times when women were not allowed to go to the university and their main task was to stay at home, cook and look after the children.

Lisa Katz | September 24, 2016 | Women

Working Into Your Niche

Women Entrepreneurs (WE) NYC | September 24, 2016 | Women

How To Wear Lingerie In Your 50s, 60s And Beyond

Elisabeth Dale | September 23, 2016 | Fifty
What I find sexy in my 60s is not the same as in my 20s, either. First, I'm not dressing (or undressing) for anyone but myself. Second, I prefer more, not less, coverage. Third, I can now afford to pay for quality design, construction, and materials. Finally, I don't need guidance on fit. I know what I like.

Carol Morgan | September 22, 2016 | Women
When my oldest son was a baby, I nursed him for the first five weeks of his life. I planned to do it longer, but the excruciating pain it was causing me every time he ate made me cut it short. Everyone kept telling me it wasn't normal to have pain, but being a first time mom, I didn't know the difference. I have sensitive skin and eczema, so in the beginning, I just chalked it up to that.
