Business is business; get over it

Feminism is still not where it should be. “Feminists” are quick to judge women in power. I say this because Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo Inc., recently announced a ban on work-from-home benefits for her employees. She’s since been criticized by women everywhere.

Model moments from a non-model: part two

Confessions of a former mean girl

Confessions of a former mean girl

When I think back to Grade 7, most things are a haze. I had just started at a new school and I was well into my awkward stage. It was more than 10 years ago and my memories have since blurred into a combination of desks, colour-coded notes and the new uniforms that I had to wear; but I remember […]
