It's 1925. You're sitting at home (yet again) with your mother as she shows you how to make a home-cooked meal for your father. And once again you ask the question you always ask her in times like this: and although you know the answer, you still bother to ask the question. "Why do we have to do this? Why can't dad or my brothers stay home for once?" You already know the answer, she replies with the ever-popular phrase "A woman's place is in the kitchen".
This was just the…Continue

I successfully survived the horror years of teenage hormones about about seven years ago. It was always my goal throughout my teens to be Ms. Mature and I always tried to be the better person or stay away from situations that I knew would bring trouble. I find myself today as a 21-year-old college lady that stands alone on a campus full of diversity, a sea of people who have lived and learned from past experiences."That's just the way things are," is often the feedback I receive when I…Continue
I'm 23, far from getting married, but I have thought about this issue before: whether to someday take my husband's last name or keep my own.

One spring afternoon in May, I was walking back to my dorm room feeling uncharacteristically calm. I decided to sit on a grassy hill riddled with dandelions. I closed my eyes and took pleasure in the sensation of the late afternoon sun warming my eyelids. I instantly felt relaxed and tuned into the outdoorsy sounds that are usually muted by the overactive mind. I heard, with unusual crispness, some natural sounds like the wind whizzing through the leaves in the tress, and some less…Continue
I was on Facebook last night and I found that my friend's status said something close to "Why can't men be more chivalrous?" A few guys started commenting and arguing that it's women's fault that men are no longer chivalrous. One guy mentioned that women don't like it when men open the door.
I personally don't believe any woman is against courtesy As a woman I appreciate a man who is…Continue
