The Magical World of Fashion
Fashion is a powerful world. Yes it drives consumerism and gives us a distorted image of the female body, but it’s also a magical place where powerful women congregate. Out of love for beautiful close and classic shoes, women’s drive and energy is in full throttle. The industry depends on women. POWERFUL women. I mean we all know the big name designers… Coco Chanel, Pheobe Philo, Diane von...
Facebook “links” to classroom learning; Are social...
The developmental advantages that have given girls greater school success are in danger of being compromised by too much social networking. The correlation between a girl’s superior academic skills noted in Michael Gurian and Kelly Stevens’ ethnographic study with the growing number of concerns analysts have with social networking supports the concern. Associate Professor of Western University’s...

I could not have said it better myself thefrenemy: First, you should let it go. If you can’t find a bridge to ceremoniously drop a box of mementos and ticket stubs from somebody you love(d) or hate(d) and used to kiss, imagine putting that person in a large burlap sack and throwing them off some high mountain. Because this is in your mind,…

I recently wrote an article on a University student who went out of her way to help a sister out. Kierston Drier taped a letter to a bathroom stall that women had wrote their struggles across. She decided to write back when she saw the “huge volume of responses” to the question, “What was the worst day of your life?” - dark answers of rape, eating disorders and loss. (See my full...

Weak Female Self-Esteem Week: The Conclusion
So after researching all of this I got to thinking… It is it so obviously a problem for so many of us, why can’t we recognize it as just normal? Even though there is so much info out there, it doesn’t change the simple facts that this is happening. It’s something that will always be there, something we will work through. An optimistic outlook is: “Alright, hey...

Feminism Theory: Believe in Who You Are Feminism theory is not only a theory in modern world. Many of us think that the theory has been set in to practice for a very long time now to change the world of men in to a world of women, which is an entirely twisted and mistaken idea. All that feminism stands for is equality between men and women. That’s the reason why feminism is regarded as an act or...

Weak Female Self-Esteem Week: Part I
The FACTS Low self-esteem is actually a thinking disorder in which an individual views himself as inadequate, unworthy, unlovable, and/or incompetent. Once formed, this negative view of self permeates every thought, producing faulty assumptions and ongoing self-defeating behaviour. Seven in ten girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way, including their looks,...
Weak Female Self-Esteem Week
I have come across the most fabulous women. Some who have volunteered for amazing national and international organizations others, who have traveled miles to help the less fortunate Some who have already established real-life adult-career paths, and others who are well on their way Some who have already built mature and stable relationships, others who thrive in singlehood With this in mind,...
Silver Linings Playbook
My mom, sister, nana and I usually go see a play on Christmas Eve. This year we opted for a movie. Less expensive. And more delicious snacks to boot. We decided to see Silver Linings Playbook and, suddenly, I think we’ve changed our tradition. It was just that good. This is one film where I felt finding love was a necessary “happily ever after”...

I'm Back. What Themes Do We See?
Sorry for the hiatus. Between school and work and my social life (i can’t lie), I really haven’t had a chance to sit down and write. Its not that I haven’t been inspired/ instigated. Between Huffington Posts’s top articles of 2012 and all the corny Christmas movies, BOTH of which unfortunately cultivate what it means to be a woman, I have been a-stewin. Trust me. So...
