If you have the afternoon off tomorrow, or work weird hours like I do, consider dropping by 92Y Tribeca for In the Fullness of Time:  Women Writers on Life After 50.  The downtown cultural center will host a panel of five highly influential female writers, in a discussion of "what it means to grow older as a woman in our world."  The writers attending made first made noise in the 1970s, introduced new vocabulary, had a hand in the development of the ...

Babes and Bikes have had a long love affair. In the 1890’s, the cheap and easily assessable bicycle provided women with a feasible means for free transportation. Susan B. Anthony once said, "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, ... Read More
I have to say, I’ve never been all that into Annie. I never read the comic, lumping it together with Prince Valiant and other boring pseudo-historical bits. Never heard the radio show, except for following Ralphie’s slight obsession in A Christmas Story. Never entirely saw the musical/movie, finding the incessant, nasal optimism to stray a bit too far from my own sarcastic cynicism in the Vast Spectrum of Positivity. All in all, I found her irritating, ... Read More

Modern Lady!

BY Catie Colliton in Feminism

My dear old pal (I wish) Sarah Haskins of "Target Women" has passed the golden tampon on to "InfoMania" newcomer Erin Gibson. Her new segment "Modern Lady" is just as hilarious as Sarah's show, but with a little more burn.

They are sure to make you feel some lady power, and possibly embarrass you if you happen to try and contain a laugh in a quiet ... Read More
                      Twelve states had their primary elections Tuesday night and voters across the country really pulled for their female candidates.  But unless you’re a Republican, I wouldn’t get too excited.  In Nevada, Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle beat out the 13 other Republican candidates eager to face off against Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid in November.  ABC ...

Sex segregation is all the rage these days, as a popular bank in Iran has opened it’s first women-only branch with an all-female staff and security guards. The state-owned bank, Melli, opened this branch for the purposes of safeguarding women’s virtue, according to the bank’s director.

It was May 3rd 2006, a group of women walked together within the fresh scent of the flowers they were planning to sell at the Texcoco local market. They must have been relishing the small pieces of triumph and hope within themselves, because today was the day they had been told they could finally sell their flowers again. Thoughts of returning home with happy little extras for their families that night were swiftly extinguished upon their approach. Laying in wait ... Read More
