20 Things I Wish I Knew In My 20s

In two weeks, I am turning 32. My 20s are officially long gone. I was thinking the other day about what I was up to when I was 21. I immediately thought of Marcy, an acting teacher I had at the time. Marcy was 39 and I remember her seeming so much older and wiser… More »


Girl Talk: I Can’t Handle Too Much Female Energy

I am 25 years old with lots of girlfriends and a sizable collection of purses. Reunions with old pals usually involve squeals or hefty grins and, yes, cute bunnies make me go “aww.” For some girls, these moments of elated feminine energy are non-stop, but I can only take small doses.

Women In The Workplace Just Keep Mucking It Up

We ladies are just all butterfingers in the workplace! Thankfully, Citi has created a helpful list of things we women are doing wrong in the office. Transgressions include: “being naive,” “smiling inappropriately” and giving “limp handshakes.” So that’s why we get paid so much less than men! It’s not the institutionalized sexism or anything!

More bad news out of the Middle East: Fresh off Time magazine’s cover story on the state of Afghanistan (with accompanying extremely disturbing cover photo), a new report from Afghanistan’s Health Minister found that more than 23,000 women and girls attempted suicide there last year — a “several-fold” increase on previous years.

No Children Is The New Motherhood

According to a new study, way fewer women are having kids these days. The percentage of American women in their 40s who have never popped one out is up to 18 percent. That stat is double what it was in the ’70s. Whoa, that’s a lot of non-breeders. So what’s going on? Researchers say that… More »


Women Spend How Much Time Shopping?

I love a good fashion study. Though I certainly don’t understand math, if the numbers and percentages relate to style, I’ll mull over the figures for quite some time. So when I found out that women spend three percent of their disposable income on clothes, I was more than intrigued. In today’s fashion-focused scientific research,… More »


Can Maxi Skirts Ever Work For Short Women?

As an individual who is faced with the dilemma of being vertically challenged — I’m super short, 5’1″ to be exact — certain fashion trends just don’t work for me. Pants are pretty much impossible and even if I liked the harem style, I can totally forget about ever looking good in them. In fact,… More »


Let’s Hear It For The Ladies!

For seemingly inexplicable reasons, the fashion industry has always been a bit of a boy’s club, despite the fact that women are the main consumers. But Sarah Mower of the Telegraph recently issued a bold statement by claiming that all of the designers to watch right now are women, and in doing so, she name… More »


Why Are Women More Into God Than Men?

This is interesting: a new study done by Trinity College confirmed that more women than men believe in God. In a survey of Americans who claim to be unaffiliated with any religion, 19 percent of men were nonbelievers while only 12 percent of women were. These stats are particularly ironic because, historically, major religions have… More »


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… More »


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 before… More »


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 shows… More »


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 than 12,000 hours,” or… More »


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 dudes… More »


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 … More »


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… More »


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 around… More »
