Thank You Trump “Boys”

I never thought I would be saying those words. And yet, if your rude, obnoxious, abusive, cavalier attitude and behaviors can help the cause of women – – well, thank you. When I was a little girl – fifth or sixth grade – I went to the movies by myself. I was supposed to meet […]

Alpha Males

There has been some attempt lately by Donald Trump’s son and others to excuse being disrespectful and obnoxious to women by saying it is “just Alpha Male behavior.” It is difficult for me to believe that these people are basically saying, “Oh, just ignore this behavior.

Our Freedom

How often we fail to see that anything and everything that comes into our lives has the potential to be an important – even the most important – teacher.

Women are Doing It!

How about those Williams’ sisters! And, how about the women at the Olympics bringing home the metals!? As we look around us, the women of the planet seem to be breathing new blood into the planet as a whole and for women in particular. We women are not only coming in first within our own […]
