The Brilliance of Malala, Jack Andraka, Janet Yellen and the Value of Role Models

CBS’ 60 Minutes recently celebrated Jack Andraka, a cancer researcher who won the grand prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair at age fourteen.  His meteoric rise to prominence for his invention of a simple, inexpensive test to diagnose pancreatic cancer, a disease with one of the highest mortality rates, is a story of exceptionalism that touches, inspires and reflects the vital need...

Matthews’ Hypocritical Lamentations on Loss of “Friendly” Politics Mirrors that of Our Leaders

In the Boston Globe, Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s Hardball waxed poetic on the “civilized” politics of yesteryear, particularly praising the relationship between President Ronald Reagan and House Speaker Tip O’Neill.  “We’re all friends after six” Reagan would say, and the two worked together in a civilized fashion. Matthews is correct that our current debate is grotesque, catering to the most aggressive in each party, and...

I’m Proud to Support the Brave Girls Alliance!

The Brave Girls Alliance is a magnificent group of women of all ages working to take back mainstream media and show young girls just how fabulous they already are.  Airbrushed, hyper-sexualized images need not apply, thanks.  Having made a small contribution to this cause, I was surprised to see my tweet wind up on a 25-foot billboard in NYC’s Times’ Square! This is only one of many positive...

Why Were Women Shut Out of the Shutdown Negotiations?

While there is no guarantee that women in Congress would bring the government shutdown to an end, historically women have a better record of cutting across party lines to forge compromise.  As this picture illustrates, far from having a 19% representation of women at the table — their current average number in the House and Senate — there are 0% at the table.  Hmmm.  Makes a girl think… Per the...

Real Women vs. “Catfights”: Can Good TV Eat Bad?

CBS’ Person of Interest deserves kudos, not only for sharp writing, but for the way its female characters are treated and portrayed. The show’s producers go to the head of the class for adding new series regulars: Sarah Shahi as an uber-capable government agent, Amy Acker as a soft-spoken, enigmatic sociopath in addition to Taraji P. Henson’s even-handed policewoman and the fabulous Paige Turco, in...

Teens Damaged by Social Media and Internet Porn – Tracing the Source of the Problem

  Friends Without Benefits, Nancy Jo Sales’ disturbing essay in the current Vanity Fair offers evidence that teen preoccupation with social media is changing the nature of their interactions, with kids emulating the behavior of porn stars, “hooking up” carelessly for what can barely qualify as casual sex. The abstract of this article states: This year, 81 percent of Internet-using teenagers in America reported that...
