We are all so sacred. Holy. Sometimes we know that, sometimes we forget. Know what I mean? We just forget. For long stretches. Can even be for thousands of years, sometimes. I was on the subway, last week, and it was packed. Those of us city dwellers know this moment: the subway has been delayed....

Happy International Women’s Day, sister. In my world, every single day is International Women’s Day. Slogging, sashaying and twerking up the feminist highway in celebration of women, it’s how I have chosen to spend my life. So, I often just ignore the day and slog and twerk along, in my usual fashion. But this year,...

Picture this. It was session four of The Womanly Arts Experience weekend. 950 women had been together for two full days, each of them delving deeply into all of what it means to be a woman.

Everything worth having starts with desire. A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about how I planted the seeds for my relationship with my partner, Peter.

Shifting from one career to another. Having a baby. Sending a baby to college. Getting fired. Starting a business. Menarche or menopause. Women are amazing. We go...

How sensual are you feeling right now? I will give you a hint; if you are repulsed by the question — and a majority of women reading this will be repulsed or made uncomfortable by this question — then, you are somewhat (or totally) cut off from your sexy. Which is interesting. Because, as women,...

I want to tell you a story. I have been running my own business for over 20 years. As is the case with many women leaders, I did not start out wanting to run my own company. In fact, that was the last thing I wanted to do. What I had was a dream, and...

This is not an easy time for those who are paying attention. This is not an easy time for hope. But these are exactly the times that require our attention and our hope. Active hope. Because the feminine grieves when grief is needed and rages when rage is needed but never does she remain still,...

I want to check in with you, with all of us: How’s your energy? Are you bouncing through the day, boundless and joyful? Or slugging it… Getting-it-all-done, but feeling depleted, running on fumes. (Maybe more than others know because you put a smile on it.) I meet a lot of fume-runners. Wanna know why? Because...

Since my New York Times bestselling book, Pussy: A Reclamation, came out last September, the world has been changing rapidly. The week after the book was published, Trump was caught on tape with Billy Bush of Access Hollywood, with his “grab her by the p—y” statement.   Instantly, Pussy went from obscurity, to the front pages...
