This Is How You Reinvent Yourself If You Lose Your Job At 45

It seems that women over 60 are having a moment — particularly in politics, where Nancy Pelosi, 78, is once again dominating in D.C., and in entertainment, where Glenn Close, 71, made headlines in January for her inspiring Golden Globes speech. But when it comes to the corporate world, women of a certain age are still fighting some tough battles. And the reality is that if you’re a woman who's fired from her job when she's over 40, opportunities may not be as flush as they once were.Industries ...

We know what you’re thinking — I’m not even 35 yet, why should I be worrying about what’s going to happen when I’m 40, 45….ahem, 50. You’re going to say a pair of forty-something women frustrated with their career trajectories is just normal mid-life angst — nothing new.But is it? Maura, 47, has been an editor at some of the most well-regarded publications in New York, but these days she’s feeling the existential dread of working at a print publication at a time when she's constantly reminded t...

Michelle Obama's Facialist Spills All Her Glowing Skin Secrets

When Michelle Obama took the stage at the 2019 Grammy Awards, she was positively glowing. In fact, since leaving the White House, the former FLOTUS has sported an omnipresent, lit-from-within radiance that'd make the women in a Vermeer painting jealous. And while a devotion to a healthy lifestyle is partly to thank, Mrs. Obama's glow also has a secret weapon: Jennifer Brodeur, the Montreal-based "skin guru" who's been working with Obama since 2014, and just recently tagged along with Obama's ma...

Stop Treating Cardi B Like She Doesn't Deserve A Voice In Politics.

There's a particular way some white people talk about artists like Cardi B getting political, especially when there are no Black people around. Both liberals and conservatives. It's condescending with a smirk, like, "Look, that former stripper from the Bronx who says 'Okurrr' all the time has political views! Isn't that hilarious!" And then everyone goes around the table congratulating each other for being smart and woke.In the middle of the government shutdown, Cardi B released a video in whic...

Could Kevin Hart have 'evolved' since posting his controversial tweets? Yes, says science.

Decade-old tweets by Kevin Hart, directed at gay men, have recently enflamed controversy.2016 studies suggest that people's outlook and opinions can dramatically change over time. His hosting the Academy Awards ceremony could signal a message of redemption in terms of LGBT alliance. We live in interesting times, an age where more — it certainly seems — is expected from comedians, in terms of what they say, than politicians. That goes for both Republicans and Democrats. Perhaps it's because, as S...

"[A]longside the statuesque Mrs. Obama in her head-to-toe gilding, [Sarah Jessica Parker] looked like an elfin wallflower in an eggplant-colored sequined dress."

Writes Robin Givhan, in "Michelle Obama can wear whatever she wants now. What she wants is sparkly thigh-high boots" (WaPo).Is it really okay to use one woman's looks to put down the other woman standing right next to her? Because there are lots of other ways to play that humor-writing game: Let me make a neutral, moderate, non-humorous observation. This is a very striking case of comparative size. It's sort of mind boggling. Which one is make the other look much smaller/bigger than we remember ...
