Something Of Monumental Importance is Happening Tomorrow!

It’s here!  I can’t believe tomorrow is finally Election Day.  By now you’re probably exhausted from all of the pleas for your vote.  I know I am.  But hopefully you’ve already registered and, if you didn’t vote early or by absentee, you plan to vote tomorrow at a polling station.  Well if you’re tired of […]

Pandering and Lip Service Not Required: Romney Isn’t A Mystery On Women’s Issues

We can drone on about sound bites and rehash debate comments all we want.  We can debate the facts laid in campaign ads, and count up how many lies have been told.  We already know where both Obama and Romney stand on women’s issues, so let’s drop the pandering and lip service and be real […]

Women will play a key role in the 2012 Election!

I think women around the world had their eyes glued to the screen during the Democratic National Convention this year, when Michelle Obama took the stage. I know I did. Regal, ladylike and at the same time incredibly down-to-earth, hearts were drawn to her. The Jackie O of our generation, who skyrocketed J-Crew’s sales, and […]

#Motherfkd: Economy Will Suffer If People Cannot Plan Parenthood

Social issues Female issues Women’s issues Single issue voters Can we please stop this pretense that effective birth control and safe and legal abortion did not transform society and help families by enabling women to plan their parenthoods and go to work? What purpose does it serve, except to deny reality and mislead people? So […]
