Pink Tech Devices,
I'm not sure when the "pinkifying" of technology started, but I first noticed it a few years ago when QVC sold an Asus netbook in two color choices, hot pink and copper. It must have done well, because soon girly netbooks were airing daily.
We have started to accept the unacceptable as the norm. Whether it is our politicians, our doctors, our pharmacists or even our neighbors, when did it become OK to do whatever you want and expect it be tolerated?

Zero Dark Thirty Torture,
Zero Dark Thirty was nominated for Best Picture. Mark Boal, the screenwriter, was nominated for Best Original Screenplay. Jessica Chastain was nominated for Best Actress, so it seems the only individual successfully swiftboated this year was director Kathryn Bigelow.
Most days I multi-task and spend much of my life looking down... tap, tap, tapping away, mind drifting off. If only my bottom could get the work out my thumbs do, I'd at least be able to check something off my resolutions list.
Maternal Mortality Rate,
Year Of The Woman,
In March of this year, on International Women's Day, I asked, "Is 2012 the Year for Women and Girls?" Now, as we enter 2013, I find myself looking back on my call for stronger partnerships, more global coalitions and wondering, Are those enough?

Gabrielle Bernstein is a bright and shining light, a feminine voice of great impact. When Gabby mentioned her new book, May Cause Miracles, I asked if we could sit down together and chat about our parallel missions to elevate the feminine in 2013.

Maternal Mental Health,
We have to talk about maternal mental health. If breastfeeding isn't working -- if the process is overtaking mothering -- then breast stops being best.
The Biggest Loser,
The descriptors applied to Dunham's body are not the most troubling element of Stasi's piece. It is the mean girl tone with which they are delivered, a tone that has become innocuous in our current culture, where women judging women has become a weird kind of blood sport.

Holidays and birthdays ramp up our happiness expectations to often unattainably high levels: to happiness with an uppercase "H" befitting the greeting card stanzas. When the tinsel and streamers come down, it's only understandable that our happiness meters need resetting. Our return to routine is a chance to recommit to everyday happiness and grab it in its lowercase forms.

Financial Advice For Women,
Saving, investing and growing your net worth gives you the greatest freedom of all, because you're no longer tied down by the limits of money; you're free to travel, to move, to take risks, to ascend in your career, to take care of your family and to handle unexpected surprises.

Women Who Swear,
Some men have a hard time hearing women curse. They don't mind choice words being used during foreplay and sex, but they don't appreciate those same words being said in public.
When people refer to women as having "big personalities," they mean she's either fat, funny or decisive.
Girls Season 2,
Season 2 of "Girls" doesn't start off nearly as strongly as Season 1 finished, but I'm optimistic about where it's heading. "Girls" isn't consistent or perfect: Sometimes it's distractingly disorganized and frankly, a bit full of itself and other times, it's euphoric fun.
There's been a lot of talk about HPV vaccination -- which protects women against cervical cancer --somehow making girls promiscuous, so much so that scientists have studied the issue again and again. Those studies have found no link between vaccination and increased sexual activity, but they don't appear...
Isn't it ironic that as we age, for many women, getting pregnant transforms from being our greatest fear into our most burning desire? Having a baby seems like the easiest thing in the world... Until you really, really want it and find that you can't.
A new year has arrived, and a lot of you have written in and told us that you want to start it off with a jump start on your career. So, in this rough economy, we thought it would be a good idea to get some expert advice and tips to keep in mind when you're searching for jobs, securing an interview, and ultimately landing the position you really want.
"Spilt Milk" isn't a perfect hour by any means. However, the showdown between Lana and Thresdon was remarkably shot and definitely cringe-worthy, and the whole noir feel gave the episode an artistic boost.
Most breakups are bad breakups, but sometimes they're made even worse by a little garnish of something extra, like an intentional or unintentional hurtful act (sometimes via technology), an irony, or even something random that just, well, happens.

Life After 50,
Women Over 50,
A few weeks ago I turned 56. To commemorate and celebrate, I ran 5.6 miles around Central Park. It felt good knowing I could run that distance and still be fit enough to join my husband and daughters at a birthday dinner downtown a few hours later. That's a sea change from when I turned 50.
Of all the places and ways I traveled, I never thought safety would be at the top of my "worry" list, but that's firmly where it is today. I plan my accommodations, daytime activities and clothing to avoid being a target.
Affairs can be painful and shocking and can cause betrayal and hurt. Yet some couples do recover.
