The Shriver Report – Feminism

Dare to say the “F” Word
Let’s face it: admitting that injustices exist in our society, economy, and media when it comes to women isn’t always fun, it isn’t always comfortable, and it isn’t always easy. But it is 100% necessary. So I have a challenge for you.  → Read More
On Feminism and Inclusion: How I Decided What was Right for Me
When someone responds with sarcasm after I explain that I am not a Feminist, I believe it is more than an indication that I am being stereotyped, or judged, but that perhaps the person with whom I am speaking has limited exposure to different narratives of women’s livelihood. Like all things well-intended, therein are ugly truths, and American Feminism, is no exception. Knowing this, I made a choice about how I identify myself as an advocate for the rights of all women, and inclusion (or lack thereof) was foremost in my decision.  → Read More

I am also a heterosexual, sorority girl who likes to attend fraternity parties and shamelessly flirt with boys. If you find yourself confused by these two very different persona, welcome to my world.  → Read More
A Woman's Nation Changes Everything
Transcending 9 to 5
We are balanced on the precipice of a whole new way of working and living, not just for women, but for everyone. If we can hold tight to our vision of what a more humane, healthy, and just America looks like, pull up our sleeves and do the hard work—side by side—that manifesting this vision will require, then the rewards could be breathtaking.  → Read More
