Mistaken Women's Lib

I cannot be the only one...who sometimes realizes that as independent, as self assured, and as confident of a woman that I think I am, there are times that I am surprised by my need to be acknowledged for doing a job usually considered masculine.  How could a woman who want's to be treated as an equal in the world, and more importantly in my marriage, feel the need to receive the proverbial pat on the head by a man for a job well done...this is a mystery.…

From Zero to Hero - An Introduction

What is it about women- Is it their clothing? Makeup? Personality?

Over the years, there have been many misconceptions about women- stereotypes, to be exact. You may be familiar with some- a woman’s place is in the home cooking, cleaning and taking care of the family, while the man is at work making the money.

While these stereotypes still play a prominent role in society, women are now more powerful than ever before.

Case-in-point, Sara Blakely- she founded Spanx, which…

Handling the work-family stressors

It is no surprise that women face a huge amount of stressors once they enter the workforce, but it increases even more once they take on the challenge of having a family. Balancing work and family life isn’t so simple.

It becomes an even bigger problem for women who are not working high-income positions and taking on these extra roles.

In past research, women who have worked managerial positions have stated that they felt “isolated at work, exhibited Type A behavior and…

By Marjie Killeen, Contributor- Midlife Wisdom

Hot flashes. Night sweats. Sleeplessness. Mood swings. Anxiety. Memory loss. Low Libido. It’s enough to make a woman crazy!

Historically, menopausal women were considered that and worse. In the Middle Ages they were burned at the stake as witches; in the 1700′s they were institutionalized as lunatics. Even today, many women view the phase so…

Feminism - You're Doing it Wrong

"The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance.…
