Until we experience it, this I know: we all long for sisterhood. Even if we don’t call the ache by that name. I see it in the women-only events we host at The School. To be in a room of hundreds of women? Only women? It feels … different. It feels special. And it feels...

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...

It’s hard to see our beauty, sometimes. Impossible, at other times. But there are two things I know for sure: 1.  I have never met a woman who wasn’t beautiful. 2.  I have never met a woman who actually knew how beautiful she was.

Pussy. Don’t mess with her. Or she will take you out. Which is exactly what we are witnessing right now, on the world’s stage, in this election year. Pussy has taken out the Donald. And he still has no idea what hit him. And perhaps never will. Pussy is arguably the most powerful pejorative word...

  Has anyone ever told you that you’re ‘too much’? Too loud? Too emotional? Too needy? Too desperate? Too clingy? Too sexy? One of my guy friends was complaining to me, just yesterday, that women are insane. And this is a really great guy with a wife, and three daughters. Who was raised by a...

There are things I know how to do. When a kid falls and scrapes her knee, I am so good for picking her up and soothing her, whether she’s mine or someone else’s. When a friend needs emotional support, I’m 100% there. But when I read the news these days, I feel kicked in the actual...

Darling, I have to be honest. Motherhood absolutely overwhelmed me. From the first moment I pushed my baby out, I was absolutely overwhelmed with love, with worry, with fear, with responsibility. I remember the first night after I gave birth to her in the hospital and everyone suggested that I leave her in the nursery...
