Those little flutters in a pregnant woman's stomach aren't always just the baby kicking. They're also a mocktail of excitement, joy and plenty of nervous energy. Have you felt them before?
Thank you, Adele for being honest and for showing women it's perfectly fine to just be yourself. Thank you for being a role model who gives us the permission and confidence that goes along with it.
Being a woman, I feel lucky to be living in the twenty-first century, the time that gives much more opportunities for women.

As the United Nations General Assembly begins a new session, the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is high on their agenda. The SDGs, which took effect earlier this year, have been described as "a universal push to transform the world." They...
I've been having some health problems. In order to resolve them, I did what any good adult would do: I went to the doctor. It turns out, I'm stressed. I'm stressed in the kind of way that makes your eye twitch for no apparent reason and makes you cry when...
Ruth Bader Ginsburg,

I never considered myself a geek until I picked up a new hobby: costume play, aka cosplay. It’s one of those things that happened organically. Someone took me to a geek convention, I saw people in costume, and not once did it occur to me not to dress...
