The Worst Advice We've Ever Heard about Women

Women: fickle, emotional, feisty, bitchy, bubbly, pushy, sassy, headstrong, hormonal, high-strung, ditzy, catty. These are just some of the words that are only used to describe women. Good or bad they are out there, and quite honestly if we as women want them gone, we have to work at it, not just complain about it. Most importantly we have to stop using them to describe one another.  I will say that it is unfair and downright rude being described as bitchy, I mean really the word is derived from the meaning of a female dog, it is one of my least favorite words....more

In the frank and honest interview, Nooyi talks about how she deals with parental guilt and how 'women can't have it all'. While I do appluad her for sharing her experience in an honest and non sugar coated manner, I have an issue with the message.  Her experience about her mother shaming Nooyi for not being the perfect mother and her subsequent guilt seems to send out a regressive message....more

How to Nab a Handsome Stranger on the Subway

A friend told me the other day that she met several of the men she had dated, on the subway.
