Freedom

I was introduced to the existence of she writes last August – and I have since then, wished to write something here. Yes, to sow seeds for possible germination into a ‘platform’, but also to hear and to be heard. Like in the lunch sessions sneaking out from our corporate conferences – where we talk of our busy lives and emotional outbreaks at work, or in the community forums – where I lurk in the comfort of my anonymity reading through posts that console me in my struggling moments with…

Does Cheap Mean Awful Smell In The Perfume World

Every woman should smell fabulous. You don't have to spend big bucks to smell expensive. People that are low on the budget look for less-costly perfume shops, and end up with cheap perfumes that are not worth the penny. With so many perfumes available on the market, it's hard to find the one that will satisfy both your smell and budget.

But, if you search wisely, you will find amazing designer perfumes for affordable price. No need to buy fake perfumes, instead find a good perfume…

Independent Women: Making the world a better place

All the women who’re independent



Throw your hands up at me



(Destiny’s Child, Independent Women, 2000)

Way back at the turn of the millennium when Destiny’s Child released Independent Women something amazing happened; the world didn’t end and it didn’t go back to the Stone Age at the hands of the dreaded millennium bug, instead it changed for the better. People became…

[SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK] A penance. A blessing. A deadline.

In anticipation of writing this blog post for BEHIND THE BOOK, I immediately sat down and wrote a whole craft essay instead. More of a memoir, actually. About waitressing. It really did apply, at least to much of this process. I wrote about being “in the weeds,” an old restaurant workers’ term for being too busy to…

Being a woman

Being a woman

Do you repent?
Yes I do
Why?
Because I am a woman.
You repent for being a woman?
I repent for being born a woman
In a society
Where love and trust
Are obsolete words.
Where desires find ventilation
In form of rape
Where…

[SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK] Three Seeds of Inspiration

Sometimes inspiration comes when you least expect it. You may not understand its value at the time, but if you are lucky you plant the seed and curiously await the results. That happened to me a few years back, and planting those seeds has made all the difference.

Before I decided to write my debut…

Writing Motherhood: Driving with teens

 



 

Catherine driving Driving Mother

by Suzi Banks Baum

One tangle of mothering teens is this:

You emerge from sleep. You hear your teen making a smoothie. She is grinding what sounds to be at least two cement blocks lugged from the garage at a pre-dawn hour and placed without liquid in the Vitamix. You decide that getting up is better than pretending to sleep. Recalling an… Continue

"Listen To Your Mother" Portland

I continue to be fascinated by how many different directions my writing takes me. It's especially gratifying when the same piece of writing benefits a worthwhile cause. 

Here's the scoop: (Via my blog at www.thesecondhalfonline.com

One of the many things I am grateful for at this point in life is that I haven’t lost my capacity to still get reeeeeeeally excited about different things … like participating in a show that…

[DIARY OF A MEMOIRIST] This Sex Which Is Not One

Sound familiar?

Cast your mind back to Luce Irigaray’s essay (also book title). Sometimes I think everything important about women was written in the 1970s, and it’s been downhill ever since.

“Female sexuality,” the essay begins, “has always been conceptualized on the basis of masculine parameters.”

That is the sentence that jumped into my mind when…

FEMME: Women Healing the World, a Ten Things I Love Review

Influential women from all walks of life and various parts of the globe discuss important topics such as religion, politics, business, entertainment and education, in an effort to help society take a more feminine approach to the multiple crises we face in this world.…

[Diary of a Memoirist] Difficult Women

Say a woman is “difficult,” and chances are that she will not get the job, the promotion, or the invitation to join the club. The adjective guarantees pariahdom. And yet as the New York Times Book Review launches a new feature of its redesign, “The Shortlist,” it groups four books about so-called “difficult women” framed by a collage of women’s cut-up faces and bright-red…
