Christy Nielsen is a Harvard grad and blogger who has gotten some flak for her choice to be a stay-at-home mom. On HuffPost Live Monday morning, Nancy Redd interviewed her along with two other Harvard alumnae who chose to lean into childcare instead of corporate America. All three women expressed the extreme gratitude they feel for having the financial option to be stay-at-home mothers (which is key in making them relatable, because so many women just do not have this privilege), while highlighting that a woman’s...

Its success sent her on a national book tour and propelled her in the direction of “household name” status (a feminist scholar developing this much clout? We are so excited about Gay.) The author has plenty of planned appearances at colleges in 2015,...
As you may have heard, Karen O came out with her first solo album, Crush Songs, in early September. The songs on the album mostly concern themselves with the emotions that O was experiencing at the start of fall.
