Guest Post at Exciting New Magazine: AT DAILY

Guest Post at AT Daily MagazineI’m excited to share a link to my second guest post, Are These Earrings One of the Most Fashionable Statements a Woman Could Make? Technically.

For a long time I wondered if it would be possible to shift some of our conversations by simply changing how we treat fashion. One day, my daughters showed me a way to do it.

When I had kids, I found myself frustrated because I didn’t have a lot to talk about, but as my two daughters got older and began to pursue their interests, which included robotics, I began to see that they were making the most of the kinds of opportunities that have become available through the tireless efforts of so many feminists. An opportunity arose that made me wonder if a shift in how women treat fashion could create positive changes in what women talk about. The choices my daughters are making have definitely had a positive impact on my life. They’re giving me incredible stories that I believe are truly worth sharing.

ATDaily offers thoughtful commentary on things that matter to you with an emphasis on highlighting the achievements of women. I hope you’ll also check out some of the other posts at ATDaily while you’re there and share your thoughts.

The New Faces of Feminism

Yesterday I put up a post and deleted it a little while later. I feel like I am being pulled in two directions as I look at where feminism appears to be headed, understanding that the new “faces of feminism” might reach some young women, but I also found myself wondering if they’re going to… Continue Reading

Pro-lifers Are Feminists? I Don’t Think So…

The other day it felt like I had found the place where the two opposing sides of the world collide. From one side or the other, I was hearing the exact same words used for different situations and different people. And, sometimes, the same words had completely different meanings. “He was SUCH a nice guy!”… Continue Reading

Sit, Miss. — Stay, Mrs. — Lay, Ms.

I heard an interview on NPR a week or so ago about the movie, Les Miserables, and toward the end they played a song that, frankly, struck the wrong chord with me. Through the stunning voice of Samantha Barks, as Eponine, I heard, “On my own, pretending he’s beside me. All alone, I walk with… Continue Reading

Overlooked, Forgotten, Defined by Men

I think my thinking really began to change the day my oldest daughter was born, but I didn’t feel a need to explore what was happening at that point. I was simply blown away with how much she instantly mattered to me. I was presented with a different kind of awareness. It wasn’t an awareness… Continue Reading
