On average, women spend at least 30 years being sexually active but trying to avoid pregnancy. That's an awfully long time considering no contraceptive is 100% effective and things don't always work out as planned.
While many of us spend time in August vacationing at the beach or in the mountains, Pennsylvania advocates took a trip to their state capitol in Harrisburg — to push for a state paid sick days law.
In my job, I get to explain the entire narrative of paid sick days to our nation's lawmakers and their staff. It's a rather simple task because most people intuitively get it — and often they have an experience to share.
Owning your own home has long been a central part of the American Dream. It's as American as baseball, apple pie and mom. But according to this column in the New York Times, a lot of moms and moms-to-be are getting short shrift.
Today the Obama Administration issued a rousing call to action on two of the most important priorities for working women and families — equal pay for equal work, and strong work-family policies.

On Sunday, people around the country will be finding a way to show our fathers what an important role they play in our lives.
