I’ve been thinking a lot about #IfIDieInPoliceCustody. I want to be able to tell you that it would not be from suicide. I want to tell you that I would be killed for being too mouthy, for asserting my rights, for giving zero fucks, for being stubborn and unapologetically black. I want to tell you that it would never be from suicide because I'd always want to go home to my children.But I’m not sure I can....more

Why Hillary Is the Candidate Who Understands Women's Economic Issues

Seems like not a day goes by that somebody or other doesn't crawl out of the woodwork with an announcement about their candidacy for President in the 2016 election. For the most part, there's not a lot of diversity on the ballot - it's mostly older white men.  (Or as we say inside the Beltway, pale, stale and male.)  So far, 10%  of the candidates are women: Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina.  That's something... I suppose. ...more

Why I Could Not Believe That New York Held a Parade For Women's World Cup Winners

On Friday, New York City held a ticker-tape parade in lower Manhattan’s Canyon of Heroes to honor the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team for winning the World Cup. It was the first time this honor was bestowed on a female team of athletes, and was a breakthrough moment for women in sports. I consider myself a feminist, but despite the wide media coverage of the parade and the tens of thousands of people who attended, it took me two days to fully believe that it had happened. ...more
