Finding Artemis: Nurturing One's Own Unique Feminine Essence

For the past few years I've felt the imbalance between my inner yin and yang become harder to manage until a thyroid condition forced me to relax.

Falling Off My Shoes

Small animals and children risk puncture wounds if they get in my way.  Men who get on the wrong side of these pumps risk injuries I won’t even descibe.  And women run  the risk of back injury, injury to the small bones in their feet, and being crippled for life.   Never mind.   Being part of the sexy pack, we wear such outrageously high shoes that we'll choose self-harm over being caught flat-footed.

Empowered Women: Unite Under Self-Love

Let's begin by exploring together what happened to women over the last forty years, and where it has left us today ... When feminism came along, it empowered women to fight for their rights and to stand up for themselves, screaming out that self-love was what mattered most. The supposed love that too many women were living with was without substance and was, in fact, really only oppression. The patriarchal world that had, up until then, dictated their every choice was suddenly denounced as many women ditched their bras, rejected sexual comments, and viewed lipstick and lingerie as frivolous and exploitive.

Ladies, the Media is Doing You Wrong

The only time I watch TV is when I'm in the living room when my roommate decides to be a couch potato. Soccer, football, baseball, etc etc--the media seems totally atuned to the male demographic. Is that a problem? I hear a loud "hell naw" from the guys. That's easy to sit back and agree with, especially if you're a guy.

Activists Protest Hugh Hefner's New Playboy Club

Perhaps is not such exciting news now that we live in an era when 8th graders go to Hooters on a field trip, but a new Playboy Club opened this weekend in Mayfair, London. Hugh Hefner first brought a Playboy Club to London in 1966, but it closed after 15 years. The new Playboy Club in London features "bunnies" ages 19 to 40 who'll work in either the cocktail lounge or the casino while they wear Playboy's iconic bunny costumes. And if men's enthusiasm to visit the Playboy Club in any way rivals women's enthusiasm to work for it, Hef won't have to worry: 3,000 women competed for 80 positions to don a Playboy Bunny tail!
