Happy 80th Birthday, Gloria Steinem!

Gloria Steinem is turning 80 this Tuesday, March 25. Best known for her feminist activism — as a journalist, author, publisher. I like to think that Steinem helped paved the way for the work that we all do, telling our own personal stories as bloggers.

Twitter to ABC Family: #AliceinArabia? WHAT?

On Monday, ABC announced its new pilots will include a drama, Alice in Arabia. Behind the ludicrous title is a plotline about an American woman kidnapped by her Middle Eastern relatives. And to complicate things further, the show is not just another ripped-from-the-headlines prime time drama, but a program aimed at kids and teens on the youth- oriented ABC Family channel. ...more
