I deserve alone time

I was recently away from my daughter for a week. It was my sister's wedding. As the trip approached, my anxiety grew, mixed in with the sadness to be away from my daughter and my husband. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but we all deserve some alone time: to nurture, love, and be with ourselves.

Gender Biases

In the past few years, I’ve trained myself to recognize sexism (explicit and hidden) in the media, in the language, at work, on social media, in movies, etc. But I have to say that the most difficult sexism I’ve been fighting with, is the one within me. The one I learned because I was raised in a sexist society.
