Pippi Longstocking Is (Still) My Hero

Editor's Note: Every single one of Cenobyte's posts for U.S. Women's History Month, about women who have inspired her from Dorothea Dix to Grace Jones to Madeleine L'Engle, is a fantastic and deep read. I encourage you to read the series, and get inspired to write about women who have inspired you, too!—Julie "Don't worry about me. I'll always come out on top." ...more

Sunday Good: In Honor of #IWD2014

Once a week I want to take time to highlight a non-profit organization that is doing amazing work in the community, whether it's locally-based or spans the globe. This space will also serve as an opportunity to keep up-to-date with news from these organizations so that I/we can stay engaged and informed....more

Reexamining Women’s Success at the Workplace

Each day seems to feature yet another story about another woman weighing in on that always touchy subject:  How do women succeed at work without sacrificing too much of their personal lives?  And how do women define success anyway?Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer—she’s the one who caused the storm with her decision to end Yahoo’s policy allowing employees to work from home—touched on another third-rail in this debate, and that’s whether she even accepts the term “feminist.”...more

From V-Day to the CEO Part of the Brain

n my book, Independence Ring: Rock the Female Revolution, I summarize wise teachings I gleaned from a Buddhist teacher many years ago.  Women are innately more powerful than men, he said, because of their ability to conduct life force and transmute energy more rapidly.  Threatened by the power of women, men over the past millennia have tried to suppress that power in every way, to the point t...more

Exploring the Role of Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)

It’s tempting to cast the role of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) as one of struggles and battles because of their sex, rather than as one of contributions because of their minds. But for Women’s History Month this past March, and for this Diversity in Science Carnival #14, our focus has been the role of women in the enterprise of STEM. ...more

Women's History Month: Surrealist Painter Leonora Carrington

I didn't realize that surrealist painter Leonora Carrington died last year. I had no idea that she had lived so long — she was the ripe old age of 94. Carrington was one of the few women to be welcomed into the very male club that was the Surrealists. Her work always had a quirky, original, and feminine quality.She apparently tried to live a surreal life as well:...more

Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month in the U.S.A, Australia and UK. Canada celebrates women’s history in October. The key thing for me is not when it is recognized but that it is recognized at all. My goal is to share with you why this history matters....more

Alice Paul's Equal Rights Amendment Back at the Plow

Yesterday, March 22, was World Water Day. That got a modicum of press. But did you know it was also the 39th anniversary of the date on which Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) passed out of the U. S. Congress and was sent to the states to be ratified? Probably not. And yet, if there is a resource women need as much as clean water, it must be the guarantee of equality under the law. ...more

There are laws already enacted to protect against discrimination. If a new attempt to pass ERA ...more
