Women: we are being lied to.

Click-through for a myth-busters sesh on the bold and subtle lies we can be told. See messages like, “You can’t be strong and feminine,” “women aren’t as good at math and science,” and “maternity leave cuts down on your productivity.” 

Busted! These ain’t true :)

But her fame may have less to do with her anointment as her generation’s chief representative than with her refusal to be famous on anything but her own terms. It’s entirely possible that she’s an icon precisely because she doesn’t speak for anyone else, because she has the exceedingly rare ability to be 100 percent herself, 100 percent of the time — or at least to come off that way. This would be a remarkable achievement for anyone, and for someone who is both young and female (conditions that historically have not been the most favorable for marching to the beat of your own drum), the combination of extreme self-reference and extreme lack of vanity feels almost like a supernatural power. ” — Meghan Daum

On the first day of Sociology 101, in 2002, Professor Evans asked everyone in our class to look down at how our legs were positioned as we sat. She asked the women if we had our legs crossed, and asked the men if their legs were open. I think she may have asked the same about our arms. We…

Stephen Colbert gives advice to young women on how to handle cat callers, how to talk to Dad about sleepovers with your boyfriend, and how to know if a person likes you. The last minutes are so feel-good.

Thanks, Rookie and Stephen. It’s so awesome to hear this male, dad perspective.

“Growing up, I didn’t read novels by women. It’s not that I didn’t want to. It’s almost like I didn’t think that I needed to or, I guess, I didn’t know that I needed to. I was perfectly happy in a world contained by men. I adopted the posture of the brooding male as my own. I was Salinger, I was Kerouac, I was any male protagonist in a novel that one of my boyfriends recommended. I didn’t know that there was a specific female sadness so I was content with relating to a generalized one. And in a way, reading these novels was less of a way to relate and more of a way to learn how to be the type of girl that these male novelists liked. One of my first ambitions wasn’t to be a writer – it was to be a writer’s muse.”
