To keep her job at this century-old private institution in Eugene, Oregon, the professor needed to either deem the pregnancy a mistake and part ways with the child’s father (also her boyfriend of twelve years), or marry him.

Freeze until it’s opaque and congealed but still soft, like the consistency of slightly melted sorbet. Top this pie with a scoop of coconut-milk...
Writer Catherine Nichols had submitted the manuscript of her novel to many publishing agents. Greeted with rejections and little interest in the book she and her friends felt was perhaps her best work, she began to feel like the problem didn’t lie in her writing. Curious to see if it was a case of gender inequality, she created George Leyer. She sent out 50 queries under her homme de plume, or male name pseudonym. As it turns out, George is “eight and a half times better...
