It's Time to Believe Bill Cosby's Accusers

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

Why I'm Absolutely, 100% for Hillary Clinton

I've been watching as former Hillary supporters fall deeper and deeper in love with Bernie Sanders.

6 Questions Not to Ask During Ramadan... and How Muslim Sisters Can Answer Them

There is nothing as fun as your non-Muslim friends asking you the silliest questions ever while you try to keep your mind off of savory, mouth-watering samosas that await you at Iftari (the evening meal that breaks the fast). You have to keep your patience, no one likes a grump, and you want to set a good example. Doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun right?...more

Why Are the Best Educated Mothers Not in the Workforce?

Houston, we have a problem.I came across a shocking statistic as I was putting together the latest edition of Mom-mentum's Advocacy eNews.  It brought me up short and sent off alarm bells.  I reread it, and reread it, and then read it again.  The longer I thought about it, the more my anxiety increased.  The sheer illogic of it stopped me cold.

Why We Need More Women in Washington

“Washington is a tough town for women,” Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham wrote in her Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir, “in large part because since its inception Washington has been and remains a man’s town.” It still is. Congress remains 80% male, and in the think tanks, lobbying firms, PACs and Super PACs that form the capital’s shadow government, men are still very much in charge. ...more
