What if you knew, from the time that you were a babe, that your body was sacred? A source of power? A change agent? I have often wondered what that would be like. Most women I know, including myself, have struggled to find the beauty and value in our bodies. Most of us were raised...

This is what I know: The very first thing there is to do. The very first thing. When devastation happens – it is time to grieve, and rage, and mourn. In community. In sisterhood. (Not ignore, not go numb, no matter how painful.) And that is not easy. What we feel, we can heal. And...

Five years ago, I led a weekend course at the Javits Center for about 2,000 women. I was nervous, I was excited, I was everything and then some. The second day, a woman in the second row asked me a question about the Black Lives Matter movement. And in my privilege, in my unconscious bigotry...

My heart breaks for George Floyd, his family, his community. For Christian Cooper, bird watching in Central Park.

There is genius in our darkness. Genius that we usually never see, never notice, never get to know. Why? Well, we are a world of men and women who have not just been encouraged, but actually taught to put a large lid on our emotional expression. If I were to burst into a flood of...

How’s your uphill slog? Sometimes, in my life, I have felt like the GPS, the universe, that which is greater, is giving me an opportunity to grow that I do not understand, that I am not sure I asked for, and that I am definitely not very good at. One of those big learning curves...

Are you tapped in to your truth? Your pussy power? Your non-rational intuition? That part of you that just knows stuff without knowing how she knows? In this current pandemic, it is obvious that the old ways of doing things, like making rational decisions or relying solely on logic are just not gonna cut it....

I was taking the elevator ride up to studio 6B at 30 Rock. Terrified. It was going to be my very first time on national television (The Conan O’Brien Show). I was petrified, I was excited, I was somehow built for this. I knew, deep in my soul, that the only way to guarantee my...
