4 Feminist Lies That Are Making Women Miserable

Twenty years ago, I wrote my first book about why women can’t “have it all,” or at least all at once, despite what the culture tells them. (Hint: It’s because no one, male or female, can perform two full-time jobs simultaneously without the bottom falling out.)

At the time, the so-called Mommy Wars were raging. Women everywhere who’d been sold a bill of goods by their feminist mothers and mentors were either lamenting the futility of being able to successfully work full-time outside the home while maintaining a healthy marriage and family life, or they were defending their choice to work full-time by insisting children do fine in round-the-clock substitute care.

How Facebook is being used as an anti-abortion organizing tool

Abortion foes around the country are organizing to pass ordinances and resolutions recognizing municipalities as so-called “Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn.” Though these measures are legally unenforceable, they ceremonially ban abortion in the cities, towns, or counties where they are passed.

You Are Here Journalism’s Uncomfortable Marriage to Non-Monogamy

If the pace of change over the last few decades to reinvent marriage hasn’t left you gasping for air, take a deep breath now. Here comes the next leg in the race to deinstitutionalize the meaning of marriage: consensual non-monogamy (CNM), where two individuals ostensibly consent to open their relationship to other sexual and emotional partners in a wide array of options.
