Carrying on the Legacy

I grew up in the 50’s and early 60’s and was raised by a feminist mother. I didn’t realize that was what she was at the time but I do now. My mom was strong, independent and believed females could do anything. When I look back at that time most households around us were following…

National Women’s Equality Day

In history class, there was always one topic that stood out to me, as I’m sure it stood out to many others. No matter what time period was being discussed, women always had to fight for equality. From the first women’s rights convention in 1848, to flappers breaking social norms for women and dancing their…

Jersey Girls Rule

“Oh my God… I’m back. I’m home. All the time it was… We finally really did it. [then screaming] YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! AH, D—…” Okay, the rest of this quote is filled with expletives, so I’m gonna skip it. Some of you pop-culturists knew in a nanosecond that these are the lines…

Pretty in Pink

My mother had prepared me: “Your father and I redecorated your room.” My firstthought was that they’d torn down my Robert Plant posters and painted over the tape marks. “It’s different,” Mom continued. Maybe, I thought, they turned my bedroom into a den. Yay! I’ll finally have a TV to myself! But then she said,…

I Resolve

It’s that time. It’s time to reflect on 2012 and consider a few resolutions for 2013. Try not to focus on just recent events. This is a challenge, I know. What tends to come to mind are those things that happened recently or were overwhelmingly tragic or (and these are my least favorite) are both…
