In a speech earlier today at the National Issues Conference of the Women’s Leadership Forum, Chafee announced the end of his bid to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2016. No surprise, given his useless and unmemorable debate performance last week. Here was a bit from his speech to a room full of female leaders: Since today is all about women’s leadership it reminds me of one of my favorite Greek plays; Lysistrata, a comedy from about 400 BCE by Aristophanes. In that play, a...

Candy corn is the quintessential Halloween treat, and who knew you could actually make it at home? This DIY version is a bit time consuming, but the end result is well worth it. Best of all, it’s vegan, so all your pals can enjoy it (store-bought candy corn typically contains animal products like gelatin, egg whites, and beeswax). If you really want to get into the spooky spirit, host a candy-corn-making party, so you can assemble these little confections in the company of friends.   1. In...

But a 21st-century makeover of an older, easier method has recently been giving The Pill a run for its money. The IUD—also known as an Intrauterine Device—is an inch-long T-shaped gadget that is inserted into the uterus by a doctor, sans surgery, and can prevent pregnancy for years. That’s probably why the number of people using the device has quadrupled since 2002. In the States,...

I joined Instagram about two years ago and we’ve had our ups and downs – seeing everyone’s filtered life can actually be really difficult by making your own life look so dull in comparison. But the greatest gift Instagram has given me is solidarity with my curly-haired community and aside from friends and family, my feed now consists almost entirely of spectacularly beautiful women (and occasional men!) rocking so many different styles that I almost can’t keep up.  Like most women with naturally curly hair, I’ve...
