Business women across America need to take a moment of exuberant and respectful appreciation for the life of Congresswoman Lindy Boggs.
I come from a fragmented society. A country proud to serve as a bridge between Europe and Asia yet unable to bridge its' own differences. This became apparent for the whole world to see during the Gezi Park protests. The uprising came about not as power struggle nor as demands for political freedoms; not as an ethnic struggle or one for democracy.

As women, we need to support each other and lean in to boost our sisters, but this doesn't mean that we need to bash men. This negative stance shows weakness, anger, and poor judgment.

It's 2013. Way past time we had some funny, delightful ads about tampons in general and the vagaries of impending womanhood in particular. So let's all give up a grrrl round of applause for Hello Flo, a company that doesn't just deliver the goods to our doorstep, but also breaks decades of some seriously stupid advertising precedents.
