What do women bring to the table that makes their companies more likely to thrive? Is it just about women, or particular kinds of women? Are women a sign of something bigger at work in a company's culture?
Possibly the most uncomfortable episode of "The Mindy Project" to date, "Danny Castellano Is My Gynecologist" centers on -- you guessed it -- Mindy (Mindy Kaling) asking Danny (Chris Messina) to be her new gynecologist.

Trevin gets some of the nicest and most genuine feedback we'd ever heard. Let's all make sure that Trevin doesn't become a casualty of the show because people feel like they don't need to vote for him because he's such a frontrunner.
Petraeus's already considerable power expanded when he took over CIA. And power is drug with psycho-active properties, one of the strongest of which is as an increase in sexual appetite. As Henry Kissinger famously observed, "power is an aphrodisiac".
Merely sticking to the status quo will achieve little in progressing gender balance in the boardroom. Regulatory nudges have helped, with FTSE 100 boardrooms having risen to around 17% women, but something more forceful will be required to get anywhere near 40%.
I talked to a number of women and all agreed that if women had half the power, things would be quite a bit different.
Wheelchairs of every shape and size stretched over the length of the showroom. They beckoned to me. The motorized ones looked smug and unattainable -- like BMWs in a Mazda dealership.

I frequently hear from former students -- usually bright, idealistic twenty-somethings -- long after they've exchanged their college dreams for, you know, reality.
Colloquial English language has no word for that -- no label we use to describe the man with whom a married woman cheats. Gigolo doesn't really cover it. Lover, perhaps, but no newspaper account would use it in a situation like this because their goal is to talk about sex without directly mentioning it. Paramour? That just sounds ridiculous.

I was all ready to write a rant about my life. However, as I began writing about how bad I think I have it, it occurred to me that everyone is dealing with his or her own types of bad stuff.
It is the duty of all of us to do more to enable millions of bright minds like Malala to have better prospects and bring down the false obstacles in front of women erected in the name of traditions or the misinterpretation or manipulation of religious teachings.
In spite of the fact that work-life balance as portrayed in the media has become as elusive as the search for the Holy Grail, women continue to desperately seek it out. Consequently, we are left feeling exhausted and guilty for failure to obtain an unachievable goal!

Even after outgrowing the lure of the bad boy, the syndrome still perplexed me. Why was this self-defeating pattern so prevalent among women? Unsolved mysteries stay with me, and this one was no different.
In the time it's taken "Teen Mom 2" to return, you could have had your very own baby! It's been nine excruciating months, but the gals are finally back and ready to make us feel superior.
I have come here with my NYU Abu Dhabi students as part of a research practicum as we speak with ordinary Turks. We can feel the heat of these intimate politics on the streets.
You leave a digital footprint. No matter how well you believe you cover it all up.

They had never met each other and had little idea beyond fragments of stereotypes of each other's faith. But a panel, "Catholic/Mormon Dialogue on Women's Ordination," brought them together.
I will miss when those teeny-tiny hands stroke and fidget while she nurses. She loves me, and she doesn't even know what love is yet.
When you meet Laura Cowan, it's hard to believe that she experienced perhaps the worst domestic abuse case in California history.

My mother raised me right. I have always looked beyond my own life to have compassion for others. Even considering my own interests, I find that there are reasons to have voted Democratic in this election other than feminism and LGBT equality.
Writers are readers, remember, and the temptation to reach across centuries, cultures, and genres to highlight another author's individual and artfully expressed truth is--happily for us--often irresistible.

This is The Year of the Woman. Again. As a result of Tuesday's elections, the 113th Congress will include the highest number of women senators ever: 20. Hate to be a killjoy but the truth is that even with this improvement women are still woefully underrepresented in this country.

All of us are seeking happiness and trying to avoid suffering. But sometimes our path toward happiness and avoidance of suffering crosses with another person's path toward happiness and avoidance of suffering and there's a disturbance. We take the other person's actions as "anti-us," but really, most of the time, it has nothing to do with us.
Did you know that insomnia affects women nearly twice as much as men? But women are more likely than men to report their insomnia to their doctor. And did you know that if you fall asleep in five minutes or less, chances are you are sleep deprived?
One thing I really like about travel is the way I can vote with my pocket book, supporting quality products and community enterprise in a real, tangible and, okay, edible way.
