Are You A Rage-aholic?

Last week, I was in line at the grocery store. I had just finished a hardcore workout at the gym and was starving, so I popped in to pick up a few things. Meanwhile, my Blackberry was going off … emails, questions, work to be done. My mom was calling. My friends were texting about…

Do Women Prefer Doin’ It While Drunk?

Who hasn’t had a drink or two before hopping in the sack? I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been guilty. I mean sex—especially with a new person—can be a daunting task. A nice little buzz can help alleviate some stress or spice things up a bit, right? But hold on one second…

Why Are Women So Unhappy?

All right ladies, we have something seriously sad to chat about—our unhappiness. In fact, we are so increasingly unhappy that Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post is devoting an entire series of blogs to explore what the heck is up with us. Before you blame it on our society, know this: Study after study…

What Makes Women Cry?

Men may spend an average of 43 minutes a day — roughly a year of their lives — ogling women, but a new study has found that women spend six months more than that crying! Researchers found that "between birth and the age of 78 a woman will cry for more tha…

Shocker: Women Eat Way Less When Dudes Are Around!

Admit it: When you go on a date with a cute guy, you don't order a big, greasy quarter-pounder and a giant plate of fries, even if you really, really want to. A Canadian study has confirmed what we all know to be sad but true: Women eat smaller meals with fewer calories when dude…

Confessions Of A (Maybe?) Excessive Drinker

Last night, I got drunk. (A few too many Blue Moons.) The night before that, I got drunk. (Vodka tonics.) The night before that, I got really drunk and accidentally made out with a dude two degrees skeevier than I would normally go anywhere near. (Shots followed by champagne.) The night before that, I…

Connecticut’s “Nurse Of The Year” Not Really A Nurse. And Other Female Impostors.

Betty Lichtenstein, a 56-year-old in Connecticut, is a really great nurse. So great, in fact, that she was dubbed "Nurse of the Year" by the Connecticut Nursing Association last year. The association spent lots o' cash setting up a celebratory dinner to bestow Lichtenstein with their top nursing honor. Only, it turns out...she wasn't actually…

Man-Ogling, We Bet You Do It All The Time

Yesterday we reported on a survey that claims men spend 43 minutes a day, or almost a year of their lives over a lifetime, eying up the ladies. Great. Fascinating. Not that surprising. Then the study went on to say that us lady-folk stare down our male counterparts about 20 minutes each day, ogling…

Summer Is Bad For Women’s Health

Damn, it seems like us gals just can't catch a break! First we found out about summer on-set depression. Now a bunch of new studies are saying that summer is hazardous to women's health in other ways. And I mean, legitimately dangerous. Sorry to be a downer, but researchers have linked the sunny seaso…

White-Collar Women Who’ve Ripped Off The System

Robin Katz is your average cute, 25-year-old girl who worked as an investment adviser at Chase Bank by day, and partied hard by night. But it looks like she might be spending some time on Rikers Island soon, after being accused of ganking $110,000 from a Manhattan millionaire's private account. Robin bounced out of NYC…

For Women, Arousal Comes After Sex

A new study shows that for women, desire follows – not precedes – sexual arousal. Rosemary Bason of the University of British Columbia explains that, “for many women, desire is not the cause of lovemaking, but rather, its result.” Women often begin sexual experiences feeling sexually neutral, she says, but by the end…

Female Movie Directors Kick Ass In The Boys’ Club

When I found out that the director of “The Hurt Locker”—a testosterone-rific movie about a team of soldiers disarming roadside bombs in Iraq—was directed by a woman, I wanted to kick myself. Not out of surprise, but because I was surprised. Why did I automatically think that only a man could direct an intense war…

Women: The Best Stimulus Package

If you want a job done right, hire more women. According to data from Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs, Columbia University, and Pepperdine University, having more women in senior management positions means higher profits for a company. So could turning up the estrogen level in big corporations be a lasting fix to the financial crisi…

What’s In Your Bag?

Some say the eyes are the window to the soul, but when it comes to women, I'd argue that it's what's in her purse that offers the real clues as to who she really is. Every so often, we'd like to delve into the depths of one woman's bag and look at what she can't…

Freezing Eggs Now Does Not Mean A Baby Later

A doctor in England is bursting the bubble for women who are thinking of freezing their eggs. Robert Winston calls egg freezing a “confidence trick” on women, since there is only a 6% chance of conceiving through a frozen egg. The process, originally developed for cancer patients wanting to conceive after chemotherapy treatments, has more…

Women In Saudi Arabia Are Tired Of Buying Bras From Men

Talk about sticking it to the man. A group of 26 women in Saudi Arabia are now “lingerie graduates.” At a 10-day retreat led by an Australian woman, the group spent 40 hours learning how to correctly fit a bra, display merchandise, and deal with customers. Victoria’s Secret even donated bras to help out with…

Science Is To Blame For His Wandering Eye

Have you ever berated your boyfriend for looking “just a little too long” at that girl walking by? Well, now he can tell you it’s just science. A new study out of Indiana University found that a woman’s partner status—whether she has a significant other or not— influences her interest in the opposite…

Cocaine use in England rose sharply in the five years leading up to 2008, according to a report released Wednesday.

Can A Homemaker Be A Feminist?

I was raised by a working, single mother. She went to Stanford, majored in economics, became a public school teacher, wrote a book, and now works as a journalist. She didn’t give up her job when she had my sister or me, and she certainly didn’t give it up after she and my father divorced.
