5 Things Beyonce Can Teach Our Girls

A Priest who Doesn’t Condemn Abortion

Why the Peace on Earth Holiday Photo Doesn’t Infuriate Me

When you think of peace on earth does your mind immediately go to women should be seen and not heard? Do you think the above photo can be construed as funny? I don’t. I find it offensive that a family would request this sort of photo that makes light of such a serious topic as [...]

Violet Iodine to the Breast Rescue #VioletDaily

With everything going on with my leg lately, I’ve neglected a lot of other things, even other parts of my body. Apparently, when your body is traumatized in such a horrendous way, all of your brain focuses on the injured party. But as I start to heal, I begin to feel all the feels that [...]

School Uniforms Destroy Girls’ Body Image

Have you ever thought about how our daughters’ self-esteem and body image could be affected by the school uniforms or dress code policy? Sounds crazy, right? I mean isn’t that the entire purpose of school uniforms in the first place, to level the playing field; to equalize all children and neutralize all social hierarchy? Isn't a [...]

Yes, Renée Zellweger Looks Different, so What?

Like the rest of the world, I noticed that when Renée Zellweger appeared on the red carpet for the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday night, she looked different. I couldn’t quite place my finger on what it was, I just knew that she looked different. Then I saw all the terrible comments on Twitter. Social [...]

Does the Washington Post Hate Women? #YesAllWomen

Oh look, the Washington Post thinks that for women to protect themselves from being victims of violence and rape we should all get married or live with our biological fathers because hey, if we'd all just stop being such cock-teasing whores for one minute and stopped taking lovers and made honest women of ourselves, we'd never [...]

Maya Angelou ~ Phenomenal Woman

I am having a hard time gathering my thoughts about the news that Maya Angelou  has died. She was a great poet, writer and woman. My heart is completely broken at hearing she has died. She was a writer who inspired many of us with her words and what they meant. But she was one [...]

#YesAllWomen Matter

I had no idea that #YesAllWomen movement began this weekend. I spent the weekend with my family, celebrating my daughter’s 7th birthday. Her birthday was Wednesday and we were busy every single day until her birthday party held on Saturday. 15 tiny, beautiful little girls surrounded me; little girls who still think they can do and be [...]
