Birth control is a part of many women’s lives. The newer method of receiving a birth control shot DMPA) every 3 months vs taking a pill every day has become a convenient way of birth control for many women.
Depo-Provera is the most well known and used DPMA. This contraceptive is injected… Continue

I read with interest Clementine Ford's article "When paying for child care is women's work". In Ms Ford's article it shows that women don't work due to not earning any money and child care fees taking a big chunk of the women's wage, but why is it solely the responsibility of the women's wage to… Continue

As moms do, we focus on our children and sometimes forget about our own nutrition and our changing bodies as our birthdays pass. Well, we recieved a question from a fellow NYC mom about her nutrition and fitness choices. Feeding ourselves is just as…

This post contains a lot of information that could be listed in the “too much” category (as in TMI). I’ll be talking about women’s health specifically as it relates to Bladder Prolapse so there will be words in this post like vagina and sex, so if those make you uncomfortable I suggest you wait until the next post when I share a Paleo Pumpkin Bread recipe , which will contain words… Continue

It is 2012 and you would have thought that the treatment of women would be the same as men, right? Well some stories in the news have surprised me and made me think we are not living in 2012 at all. Not sure what year we are in, but the view of women is that we are controlled by hormones, we obviously cannot make a decision that is not controlled by our menstrual cycle and of course we have powerful ways of not getting pregnant if we were ever raped – legitimate rape or not? How can rape… Continue

This documentary chronicles the egregious violent and sexual abuse of women and girls as young as infants around the globe. Creators Nicholas Christof and Sheryl WuDunn have done an outstanding job uncovering the gut wrenching stories of abuse in their fight for global awareness of an issue so many think is passe: Women's Rights.
Here's my blog post and link. I hope you'll take the time to read and then watch these young women share their stories. …

This week, I had the pleasure and honor of speaking to women at a local shelter. First of all, I must say, these women are amazing and very gracious. I felt well-received by the staff and residents. I am greatly looking forward to more opportunities with this particular organization. I'd like to take a minute to share a few behind-the-scenes moments and things leading up to this opportunity.

I started getting all sentimental as I ended my post about friendship after kids. I really am lucky to have some fantastic friends. Many of my girlfriends are ones I've had since I was young, and others I've met along the way. And while we've all become busy and wrapped up in our own lives, we still stay in touch as much as possible and try to be there for each other when it matters most.… Continue

I had a pretty long conversation with some work friends today about life after kids. We all know things change, and I could get into it all right here, but we'll go ahead and space it out a bit in the interest of time and carpal tunnel syndrome. But what we were… Continue

I woke up that morning paralyzed by fear and dread. It had been just under two months since my then foster daughter had moved into our house -- two intense months that had turned my life upside down. Two months of her almost-daily meltdowns: I'd been physically attacked; I'd been called a "f**king b**ch." I'd watched my biological daughter transform from a happy, open child, excited about getting a new sister, to an angry, cornered animal who believed her life had been ruined by the… Continue

It was International Women’s Day last week, which led me to wonder: Do you think the future our foremothers dreamt of for little girls included wearing t-shirts three sizes too small with “porn star” stretched across her augmented bosom, or the seat of her yoga pants? Read more...

I have a black bracelet studded with stars,a fearless girl I knew a decade ago often wore it.
She was completely comfortable in her own skin. One of those girls who at 20 inherently knew what suited her and stuck with it. She didn’t mind being cute as it fit her somewhat bubbly personality.
Her diary was full of events,Phi Sigma Rho meetings,Sigma Alpha Iota… Continue

Last night I wrote a post about how much the women's revolution has angered me and the need for Two Income Households stampeding on the "family life". I did not mean to upset so many people. I am not going to Continue

post if it upset so many people. My reasons for writing such a post was
to find out how working moms handled their lives emotionally and
mentally and to ask how much real quality time they get to…

On Saturday a friend of mine called to see if we wanted to go to the spring fair. She had four tickets that her husband had won from the radio, so it was a pretty sweet deal and we couldn't pass it up! Parking is ridiculous during the fair (and so is traffic!) so we parked pretty far away and walked to the fairgrounds. We ended up having a blast! It looked like it was going to rain but it ended up being a very nice day, I was just glad that we put sunscreen on Pierce before taking him… Continue

How many times have you been in the women’s locker room at your gym and women are walking around in various stages of undress? I work out five days a week and I am constantly confronted with women’s parts that I would really rather not be
