What constitutes the Real Woman?

“Listening to them one would think that the DIL was a novice and needed to be given directions even for managing day to day affairs. But I knew better.” – Hip Grandma’s is an unusual post on a Mother-in-law/Daughter-in-law bonding.

“If we insist on our kids kissing every ‘uncle’ or ‘aunty’ when they do not want to, or ignore a child’s discomfort when he or she has to endure unwelcome hugs, we are giving them the wrong messages.” – Breaking the silence on CSA.

‘Smitten’ by Ranjit Lal explores the same issue in its many aspects. A review by Mad Momma.

“It would be boring if it weren’t so incredibly outrageous. Every time a female being reports molestation there is always that someone who knows exactly why it’s all a lie (and why it’s all her fault)” – The Tweet with an Attitude.

“Rise, wash Ben’s clothing, feet, and ass; powder Ben’s wig; chop wood for cooking breakfast…” – A hilarious, behind-the-scenes look at the life of a great man.

“I feel there is something retrogressive when in 2012 we are still looking at women in dresses, and listening to men about their directorial qualities.” – Arts and the absent women
