In case you were wondering as I was, an oratorio is pretty similar to an opera in its use of a choir, soloists, and character ensembles, but unlike an opera, there's no scenery, costumes, or action.

Yay! The White House made a report on the status of women! Oh no, as far as women in America go, we're still paid less than men and doing most of the housework.

Erin Grant explains it all in a new Modern Lady videocast. Don't worry Erin. According to the most trusted news source of all ... Read More

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been reading a lot about breasts lately. Not only does public breastfeeding cause an uproar, but resources to help these women are being thrown under the bus too! And seemingly, West 70th, between Broadway and Columbus, the Upper Breast Side, can be considered a mecca for breastfeeding mothers. Owner, Felina Rakowski-Gallagher opened in hopes of providing a space for women that would make breastfeeding easier ... Read More
We’ve been honked, whistled, and leered at. We can attempt to escape the heat by wearing tank tops and shorts, but we can hardly escape the harassment that we face every day on the streets. It is often dismissed as an inevitable annoyance, or maybe even seen as a compliment, but street harassment is one the most pervasive forms of gender-based violence and one that is least legislated against. March 20th, the first day of spring, is International Anti-Street ... Read More
A news story has been making the rounds about an 11-year-old girl who was gang-raped by a group of males in a small town in Texas. Eighteen young men and boys have been arrested in connection with the case, which would seem like justice is starting to be served, but The New York Times has begun to go ahead and undermine it!

“The Army didn’t want them there. The academy leadership didn’t want them there. The school’s faculty and cadets didn’t want them there. It seemed no one did–but in July 1976, 119 young women stood at the gates to the US Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, NY, to embark on a course that would change their lives, the academy and the Army, forever.”  After the 1975 legislation signed by President Ford, women were ...
