I Called Myself a Bitch, and Then Thought Twice About It

Sasha Bronner | March 27, 2015 | Women
I thought more about the word. It's everywhere. Often not even beeped out of television shows, "bitch" is in rap songs and pop songs and on t-shirts. "It's Britney, bitch." "I'm in Miami, bitch."

Mika Brzezinski | March 27, 2015 | Business
The "Grow Your Value" bonus competition drives home the message that it is important for women to both learn their value and communicate it effectively.

Angelina Jolie and the Definition of Strength

Evelyn Fiske | March 27, 2015 | Women
It takes an incredibly strong and brave woman to choose to go through with this surgery and then proceed to tell her fans about it. Jolie is demonstrating the definition of strength with this challenging decision she made.

Are You Falling Out of Love?

Randi Gunther | March 27, 2015 | Healthy Living
Relationships are never all bad, and you might have been trying too hard to focus on the things you still valued while you were slipping away inside. You've been struggling with whether you're really done or just need a new way to be together.

Cookie Doughprah Winfrey and S'moria Steinem: 10 Solutions to Ben & Jerry's Women Problem

Amanda McCall | March 27, 2015 | Women
There are currently no female flavors of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (even Tina Fey would agree that, while "Greek frozen yogurt" is certainly a healthy ice cream alternative, it is not the same as ice cream).

The Secret to Doing What You Love (and Being a Runaway Success at It)

Lisa Mae DeMasi | March 27, 2015 | Women
Mentors are necessary. Hemingway had Stein, Beethoven had Neefe. The true challenge once you know the secret lies in finding a mentor is how to find that coach who can make your passion work in the world.

Club Med(ical Practice)

Erin Gibson | March 27, 2015 | Comedy
I've just been invited to an exclusive club. It's not the Soho House. It's not the Illuminati. It's not even Costco. For $250, I can get a membership into the hottest club in Los Angeles - my primary care physician's patient roster.

Take the High Road With Lizzie Velasquez: Inspiration from SXSW 2015

Shelley Zalis | March 27, 2015 | Women
As I stood up to address the group, including Lizzie's parents and brother, I had trouble putting together a sentence. And I'm never speechless. Actions do speak louder than words, and when I first learned about what Lizzie was doing for women and anyone who's been bullied, I was struck by her courage.

Shailene Woodley Does Not Want You to Call Her a Feminist

Erin Spencer | March 27, 2015 | Women
It seems Woodley isn't quite ready to pull at TSwift and flip flop on the issue. Such a shame considering Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent, where Tris is said to be more badass than ever, just hit theaters.

The One Thing You Need to Know Before Having Two Kids

Lyz Lenz | March 27, 2015 | Parents
I didn't handle the transition from one to two kids very well. I've been trying to figure out why. Maybe it was just more overwhelming than I was prepared for. Maybe I needed more Zoloft than I was willing to admit. Maybe I was too rigid in my expectations. Maybe all of this has made me softer and more willing to bob along in the chaos.

Oh F*ck, I Think I'm Raising Kids Who Swear

Mike Reynolds | March 27, 2015 | Parents
Look, in the long run, "f*ck" is but a word. Is it a word that I'd prefer my kids not go around screaming? Yes. But it's only bad because we've been conditioned to get so worked up about swearing.

Guilt -- And What To Do About It

Danielle Vaughn | March 27, 2015 | Women
Guilt can be a good deterrent, keeping us on a path we want to be on. Guilt teaches us. Guilt can also creep in like an unwanted house guest and linger, clouding our decisions and making us do things we don't want to do.

8 Reasons Not to Get Pregnant Again

Jessica Dimas | March 27, 2015 | Parents
I'm surrounded by baby bumps and adorable, fat, juicy babies. I don't want any more babies... mentally. Logically, I know that I'm not cut out to do this all over again. But sometimes my baby fever needs a nice, cold bucket of ice water thrown on it.

For Women, History is Happening Now

Laura Reyes | March 27, 2015 | Women
As we look back on Women's History Month, it's easy to look forward with great expectations. Women are still making a difference -- in the labor movement and throughout our society. Unions remain a solid pathway to success for America's women.

Amid Sweet Briar Battle, Women's Colleges Remain Important and Relevant

Helen Drinan | March 27, 2015 | College
When I first heard the news that Sweet Briar College would close, I thought it was a mistake. How could this be true? Shuttering this respected, 114-year-old women's liberal arts institution seemed implausible.

5 Things This Stay-at-Home Mom Learned From Her Working Mom

Olga Mecking | March 27, 2015 | Parents
Having a working mother is a gift. Without her, I wouldn't even know what is possible. I wouldn't work so hard to pursue my dreams. And of course I want to provide the same inspiration and be a role model to my children as well.

Why You Shouldn't Lie About Your Age

Jen Glantz | March 27, 2015 | Women
You find yourself waking up on a Tuesday, soaking wet in your own stress sweat, screaming "Ahhh, it's April and I don't even have a 401k and I just downloaded my third dating app of the week and now i'm supposed to turn another year older?"

Whether you walk in the halls or on the red carpet, promoting our mental well-being is a priority that needs to be taken more seriously.

In Liberia, Children Affected by Ebola Need Our Support

George Kordahi | March 27, 2015 | Impact
At the height of the Ebola outbreak, a woman came to our SOS medical clinic in Monrovia with her 16-year-old son. She was desperate for us to admit him to the clinic, and all signs indicated that he was already infected with the disease.

Aging While Female Is Not Your Worst Nightmare

Lori Day | March 27, 2015 | Women
If not for the mirrors in my house, I would be very confused about what changed and why. Young women, you'll experience this too, some day. You'll catch your reflection and your breath at the same time and be abruptly reminded that your exterior no longer matches how you feel inside, and that it now undermines the power of your voice, the voice that took decades to build up.
