For seven years, NBC’s The Golden Girls brought the fantastic lives of Blanche, Rose, Sophia, and Dorothy into our televisions. It has since passed down to our younger generation through syndication and popular culture. Unlike many other shows featuring a group of women, the Golden Girls weren’t young twenty-somethings trying to figure out their lives, these were fifty (and eighty) somethings trying to figure out their lives. The show reminded us that women’s lives don’t just stop once their children are grown or if they are widowed/divorce. Read More
BY: Lisa Hix (Collectors Weekly) We got cable TV in 1983, the same year I discovered what I called “rock” music, thanks to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” Since the “Thriller” video gave me nightmares, I wasn’t supposed to watch MTV, the all music-video channel that launched in 1981, but I did.

France is seeking to ban dressing sexy in public, because apparently policing women’s bodies is easier than checking male privilege.

Did you shrink your favorite wool sweater? Dry your eyes; there may be hope for that sad little guy. With some baby shampoo, a hand steamer, a little cardboard, a few binder clips, and some elbow grease, you can loosen up the fibers enough to stretch the sweater back into shape. Not all sweaters can be saved—if it has become completely felted, then there may be no hope. However, if it just shriveled up so the arms are half of what they used to be and it’s now a belly sweater, you can give this technique a go. Read More
