Should I Be Flattered?

Woman V Patriarchy Once Upon A Yesterday… I had to deal with a man’s inappropriate behavior at work.  Last week I went to a business to shoot some interviews for the company’s rebranding. It was all men except for me, which is not unusual. I showed up alone because there was no need for an... Continue Reading →

Honoring Her Inner Superhero

“The US economy lost 140,000 jobs in December. All of them were held by women.” This is the headline that caught my attention.
