The Pernicious Power of Patriarchy
February 27, 2020
If we women were honest, we would say that we have all cosigned patriarchy in the interest of keeping it moving. We have deflected the sexist comments that come our way, even as we cringe from them.

Pots and Kettles – Republican Hypocrisy and Double-Talk
December 19, 2019
While Republicans are throwing mud at Hunter Biden, no one has asked for any investigation of the Trump family. Ivanka has used her father's influence to gain coveted trademarks in China. Her brothers have used government resources and their father's influence to feather their nest in establishing new Trump properties all over the world. While I'm not condoning Hunter Biden's possible pecuniary use of his father's status, none of us should be happy about the way our government has subsidized the Trump Empire. ... read more »
