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.
Violence Against Women,
Here are my top examples of the exceptional women in this world playing the "women card" and inspiring the rest of us.
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.
I've learned important skills that help me get the most out of networking events. You can take advantage of these too. The secret is to know whom you want to meet and how to find them. Here's how.
Roughly two years ago, a female CEO in Silicon Valley made headlines for making less money than her male predecessor. This story became a media launch point for discussing the struggle with diversity in tech.
How the U.S. military restricts servicewomen from accessing abortion on military bases is a discriminatory scandal.
Donald Trump stated that in Hillary Clinton's quest to be the Democratic nominee for President, she is only doing as well as she is because she is a woman. Since when has being a woman ever translated into a trump card?
Together they have created a business partnership that extends beyond the confines of the office and reaches into all areas of their lives, while providing a unique impact for their clients.
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.
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.
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 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.

Some of the things we can do to cultivate a positive body images within ourselves:
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.
In a first time, one of a kind gala event, TurkOfAmerica selected 30 influential female leaders from across the U.S. to compete in 30 categories to be crowned The Most Influential Turkish-American Women.
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.
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.
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.
I learned that you should listen only to yourself, your instinct, your beliefs, and your heart. By doing, that I got the most beautiful gift of all. Meeting the love of your life at a young age isn't a problem.
