Which is the Superior Sex?

Perhaps you have heard the recent comments (and subsequently firestorm of rebuttal articles) by a certain well-known Catholic cardinal who seemed to say that the women’s movement has hurt society and especially men. He isn’t the first so–called conservative–thinking celebrity to lump all facets of the women’s movement into one, aligning all women–related efforts to radical…

A Different Kind of New Year’s Resolution

The new year is here and with it the many reduced gym and fitness memberships, the weight-loss pill advertisements, and the numerous articles addressed to getting fit in magazines, blogs, and morning shows. Of course, being healthy is important,  but it seems often the emphasis is less about respecting one’s body and more about hounding women…

A Husband’s Perspective: Post Partum Depression

Saying that postpartum depression affects only the woman experiencing it is like saying that alcoholism only impacts the person who is drinking destructively. It is obvious that postpartum depression affects the dynamic of the entire family, not only the individual. When our first child Grace was born, Abby went through over a year-long struggle with postpartum depression. (For the sake of brevity, let’s use PPD from this point forward.) To say that this was an…

Things I Shouldn’t Have to Say

I am someone who loves memories.  I love photo albums, journals, and anything that reminds me of how blessed our family has been and is.  We tried something new this year, an idea from pinterest that actually materialized and didn’t involve almost burning my kitchen down with a “super easy” recipe.  We took an oatmeal…

As Women Speak for Themselves have clearly stated again and again, no one speaks for all women on any issue, particularly “women’s issues”. (Though I always say that women’s issues are everyone’s issues.) It is…

Why It Took Me 36 Hours to Recover from Praying Outside Planned Parenthood

This week’s post comes from Jewels Green, former abortion worker turned Pro-Life advocate. I was nervous. I’ve been pro-life for about 3 years but I’d only prayed outside of abortion facilities a few times. Each time I’d been nervous, uneasy, worried. Each time had been painful, discouraging, yet grace-filled.  Bearing witness to the horror and…

Feminism’s Christmas Superpower

I remember my great grandma’s apron at Christmas time. It was constantly worn and almost threadbare, but it never looked unkempt or particularly dirty. It suited the happy scene and it suited grandma. She was in the environment she thrived on and the little frown wrinkle between her brows didn’t fool anyone. She loved to serve. It…

Is Choice All That Matters?

I observed a few heated internet exchanges recently between those who consider themselves Feminists and those they perceived as “anti-woman”. Most recently, the topic was egg and sperm donation. One person (who is male) stated that egg donation exploits the donor. The person whom he was speaking with (a woman) then accused him of sexism…
