When it Comes to 'Female Viagra' Lybrido, Don't Believe the Hype

Dr. Ferrukh Faruqui | June 19, 2013 | Canada Living
Women, take a deep breath. Sexual nirvana, the latest elixir in a bottle, has arrived. Enter Lybrido. The makers of Lybrido, ironically called Emotional Brain, are cynically cashing in on our insecurities as women.

Women Want Equality, Not Parity

Hadley Heath | June 19, 2013 | Women
It's limited resources, not gender, that typically holds us back from getting what we want, whether it's a corner office in the C-Suite, an additional shift at Wendy's or an extra week of vacation each summer.

Susan Campos | June 19, 2013 | Divorce
Last week, my ex-husband and his wife took residence in a shiny new split-level some 15 short steps from the Los Angeles home I share with my teen-aged son. When I informed my friends and family they thought we were crazy. But isn't it better to make an ex an ally rather than an enemy?

BJ Gallagher | June 19, 2013 | Healthy Living

Finding Synergy Between Work and Life

Jamie Kramer | June 19, 2013 | Women
We often are told that work and life should be separate and therefore balanced, like two objects on a scale. Over the years, however, I have discovered that greater fulfillment comes from finding ways to integrate these two important parts of my life, rather than thinking of them in isolation.

Finding a Title, With a Daughter's Help

Henriette Lazaridis Power | June 19, 2013 | Books

A True Shonda: Princesses: Long Island

Rep. Steve Israel | June 19, 2013 | New York
I'm proud to represent an area of Long Island that has been the location for many famous movies and TV shows. Shamefully, it's also now the location for a show whose characters are disgraceful, misleading, and fuel anti-Semitic stereotypes: Princesses: Long Island.

Martha Burk | June 19, 2013 | Politics
House Speaker John Boehner told reporters the GOP's abortion ban that passed the House 228-196 on Tuesday won't change the party's relationship with women. He's half right. It won't change the party's relationship with women, because women already hate the GOP.
