Set Yourself Free By Telling Your Truth



It breaks my heart that Sex and The City ended. For nearly a decade, I could pretend that women really do gather together over Cosmos, talking about sex, career, relationships, and the meaning of life according to Carrie Bradshaw, all while decked out in Manolo Blahniks and sporting styling haircuts, both cranial and pubic.

Vagina Topics You're Dying To Discuss With Your Girlfriends

Yesterday’s post “What? We Can’t Say Vagina?” got more traffic than anything we’ve ever posted on Owning Pink.

Wounded Healers

banner4Why is it that our doctors have become so broken? “Physician heal thyself,” or so they say. But it seems we’ve lost the art of caring for ourselves as a profession. It saddens me deeply. Yesterday, Aviva Romm, a skilled midwife/herbalist/author/artist-turned-Yale medical student called me to process the decisions that lie ahead of her.
