When a Powerful Message Is Hidden in a Tangled Mess

If I’m honest, it may have been a simple case of avoidance. “Deconstructing Christmas decorations is my favorite thing to do,” said no one ever. So, it made perfect sense that that moment was the ideal time to kick off a new year’s initiative, right? Organizing and decluttering closets and drawers suddenly became just as important as putting away the circus of ornaments, snarl of lights, and crates of holiday decor. I was in an all too rare mood to get rid of things I hoped would serve and delig...

All the best signs from Women's March events around the world

The Women's March is back for its third year, and despite several layers of controversy surrounding the march's leadership, highly attended events were still held across the world.

This is what a workday looks like for a CEO who runs his entire 40-employee tech company from a farm in New Zealand

Christian Mairoll is the CEO of Emsisoft — a company with no offices, where every single employee works remotely.  Mairoll now lives in New Zealand, where he manages employees in the U.S. and Europe in the early morning, and employees in Asia in the late afternoon. During midday, his work quiets down, so he'll take time to check on his sheep and chickens, do some gardening with his wife, or even go to the beach.

I didn’t seek out Marie Kondo, but I can’t seem to escape her. My news feeds, my Netflix previews, even at my women’s ministry meeting at church, there she is.

A Red Hat-backed open source project warns that a controversial new plan to take on Amazon and other tech titans is only causing 'Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt' (MDB, RHT)

Red Hat itself has dropped MongoDB support in its flagship Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, saying that the new license places an unreasonable burden on customers ...

The Advice Real Women Would Give Their Younger Selves About Losing Their Virginities

Like with braces and bad skin, most of us grow up believing that virginity is a thing to be shed. Its very language implies that we’re working to lose it, to get rid of it — and it's assumed that we’re more mature for having done so. Be it in a college dorm room, your parents’ house, or the supply closet at a local diner (we’re not judging), your V-card is a thing you anticipate casting off. But in most cases, the actual moment of impact (sex, that is) is a little like ripping off a band aid: p...

Cheating, Stalking & Obsessing: I Was Joe In You

When Joe (Penn Badgley) stalks, tortures, and obsesses over Beck (Elizabeth Lail) in the Lifetime series You , I identified with him. I’m not proud to admit this, and this was a version of me a long time ago, but still, I related to him. This is especially true when he justified his behavior with the logic that this is what one does when they’re in love .In the early aughts, in the last few years of my teens, I had my first boyfriend, and I believed I was in love. I first met him when we were...
