Is Bob McDonnell Bad For Women?

Okay, that's an incendiary headline, isn't it? I'm not one to enter the circular firing squad on Republicans (okay, so yes, I am, but not fresh-out-of-the-box governors who are serving as a bellweather for the Democratic agenda's chances in 2010), but there are certain issues on which I feel, as a libertarian feminist, on which I have to seek clarification, the question of whether a certain candidate actively works against the interest of women being one of them. ...more

THANK YOU! :) more

(Introduce Yourself!) Kudos to the working Mommies!

Hello everyone! My name is Kat, and I blog over at The Atomic Mom. I'm pretty new to the working mama circle, and just wanted to stop in to say hello, and introduce myself. I just started working full time last week, when I realized that I could no longer be a SAHM due to our budget. You cen read about that on my blog, but I won't get into it here.
