Be Aware Even Outside Awareness Months

Glennisha Morgan | Posted January 31, 2013

Dress for the Career You Want, Not the One You Have

R. Kay Green | Posted January 31, 2013

If you want the career you don't have, you must dress for that career. Dressing for the career you want (and not the one you have) isn't a matter of just putting on new clothes. Rather, it's a matter of internalizing your goals and dreams.

Wine and Serenity on Superbowl Sunday?

Caren Osten Gerszberg | Posted January 31, 2013

When game time begins and all players -- and viewers -- prepare for the coin toss, that's my clue to take to the living room. I'll usually curl up on the couch, with either a cup of tea or a glass of wine close by -- book, newspaper and laptop at the ready for at least four hours of quiet time.

Joan Williams | Posted January 31, 2013

Linda Babcock herself, the author of the studies that gave rise to the "women don't ask" industry, has shown that women don't negotiate for a very simple reason: they sense -- correctly -- that it will hurt them if they do.

Girls Just Wants to Have (White) Fun

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar | Posted February 1, 2013

Girls wants to tell us something important about twentysomething females of the 21st Century. And, as the elders of our society, we should always be listening to those new voices crying out. But what are they telling us?

Go Red for Women: 'At Age 32, I Need a New Heart'

Mary Leah Coco | Posted January 31, 2013

Sometimes it seems unreal that at age 32, I need a new heart. This reality serves as a reminder that you can be the perfect picture of health and still have heart disease.

Why I'm Saying Yes To (Mom) Bangs

Melissa Carr | Posted January 31, 2013

One of the reason I just got "mom bangs": There is a deep wrinkle above one of my eyebrows that drives me crazy. To anyone else it's nothing, but to me it's a crease I would rather not see every day.

The Levo League | Posted January 31, 2013

Women & Co | Posted January 31, 2013

Which Downton Abbey Character Are You?

Jen M.L. | Posted January 31, 2013

When I watch shows like Downton I like to imagine that I'm just like one of the characters in the story. Usually, it's the heroine (because really, who wants to be Daisy?). I'm a Crawley, for sure, but which one?

Thank You, Hillary

Madeleine M. Kunin | Posted January 31, 2013

We will miss you. We will miss that bright green, blue or red jacket in the crowd, we will miss your calm and serious voice, and we will miss knowing that through you, we, the women of America, have a voice.

Quoth the Raven, 'Hut-hut'

Colleen Glenney Boggs | Posted January 31, 2013

The 49ers are heavily favored to win the Super Bowl on February 3, but I'll be rooting for the Ravens. My loyalties have nothing to do with football, nor Baltimore. I'll be cheering for the only team in the NFL named for a poem.

My Missing Country

Silvia Pera | Posted January 31, 2013

I have always had trouble figuring out to which country I belong. I travel regularly to Italy, speak Italian, have Italian friends, but I have always lived in the U.S. I don't really fit in either country.

I Work Harder For Male Spin Teachers: Discovering An Unconscious Gender Bias

Christie O. Tate | Posted January 31, 2013

I consider myself well-educated and self-aware. I wrote a Master's thesis on issues in Women's Studies and kept my maiden name. I assumed I was one of the last people who would unconsciously work harder for a man than a woman.

Hillary Clinton's Curtain Call?

Barbara Lee | Posted January 31, 2013

Hillary's resume prerequisites for a presidential run are outweighed only by her panache -- a novel brand of cool she's cultivated over more than two decades in the political spotlight. Hers is a well-earned confidence that she makes seem effortless.

Dave Linn | Posted January 31, 2013

Perfumes Inspired by Dead Writers

Amanda Nelson | Posted January 31, 2013

Falling down the Etsy rabbit hole is one of my internet-ish weaknesses, and upon one of these bottomless falls I came across this Dead Writers Perfume, which is made with "black tea, vetiver, clove, musk, vanilla, heliotrope, and tobacco."
