Feminism and the Immersed Parent

It sounds strange to some people when I say I’m a feminist. To them all feminists have one thing in common: fem-ness. But feminism is a to-philosophy rather than a from-philosophy: it aims toward parity and equality rather than emerging from inherent traits. In fact, it is a from-philosophy that feminism is a reaction against: the philosophy that biological differences are relevant in non-biological spheres. ...more

BlogHer '09: We're listening. And here's what we're mulling over so far...

It's Day Three post-BlogHer '09, and we are in our full-on, annual Listen-Real-Hard mode here at BlogHer. Since Lisa Stone, Jory Des Jardins and I first plunked down our credit cards to reserve a space for the BlogHer 2005, we have asked for everyone's help to make it happen. To make it better. To make it a celebration of women who blog. ...more

All of it postive. And you KNOW I've been vocal about things I didn't agree with in the past. ... more

What to Wear to BlogHer '09 (And Why to Stop Worrying About it Already)

BlogHer's 2009 conference is in less than six weeks, which means we're entering a phase that totally stresses me out; I like to call it the what-the-hell-do-I-wear? phase. In the past week, I've started stumbling across the first of what will be far too many posts written by women who are convinced that they need to purchase an entirely new wardrobe in order to fit in at BlogHer. Let's get one thing clear: You do not need to buy new clothes for this event. Nor should you feel any pressure to look some particular way when you show up in Chicago.  ...more

will you promise to track me down during the conference? Please???

Sure! I'm ... more

My Life in Hair

She looked at me with big, brown eyes and a lopsided ponytail, eyes squinting with curiousity. "Why do you put your hair in knots? They look bad. They feel bad." She was approximately six years old - and my niece - so it wouldn't be socially acceptable to dropkick her. As young women, most of us learn that the great unifier, the ultimate divider, and the ever-changing esteem booster is HAIR. Nowhere is this more prevelant than in black culture. As women, we teach young girls by example, however inadvertantly. So what would my lesson be today? ...more

It's so strange, and somewhat sad, what we learn about beauty when we're young. I don't doubt ... more
