SheHeroes Beyond the 11th

One of my favorite mythological creatures has always been the Phoenix. Some of you not familiar with Greek mythology may actually recognize the Phoenix as Professor Dumbledore’s pet bird, Fawkes in the Harry Potter series.

British Schools Banning Skirts and Make-Up

I read a story that seemed so conflicting 1950s yet totally understandable in this day and age; the publicly funded Nailsea School in Britain is creating a stir this year by outright banning skirts.

Setting The Right Example

Last January I made a New Year’s resolution to start living healthier. Between working at home and having two kids it felt like I had lost any control over what I was eating on the go and had made no attempt at adding exercise into my daily routine (except for walking to and from school […]

It’s probably safe to assume that at some point during the last couple of days you probably saw on the news or read online about the incredibly sexists shirt that was being sold at JCPenney stores. The shirt said, "I'm too pretty to do my homework so my brother has to do it for me." […]

"Boy" Shoes

At the beginning of the summer I purchased sandals for both my son and my daughter. I knew we’d be doing a lot of hiking and camping and wanted them to have sandals that would be more comfortable in the warm weather yet would still protect their toes and feet while hiking. At Target I […]

Waiting for Supergirl

I remember as a girl always enjoying Superheroes, though I didn’t really get into comic book geeky stuff until high school when a lot of the guys I hung out with were comic book guys.
