The Supreme Court listened to Trump v. Pennsylvania and The Little Sisters of the Poor Saints Peter and Paul Home v. Pennsylvania, at an oral hearing on May 6th. These cases seem to be mostly about contraceptives, but upon further research, it’s also connected to religious liberties. This is what you need to know about these two Supreme Court cases.
The Little Sisters of the Poor do not want to provide contraceptives to employees because it goes against their religious beliefs, nor ...
Doctors and nurses have taken to media outlets, such as NBC News, to tell people to #stayhome unless it’s an emergency related to COVID-19. So, how are people getting treated for non-COVID-19 related issues, like sexually transmitted infection (STI) and sexually transmitted disease (STD)* testings?
The answer is via telehealth, in-person appointments, and at-home testing kits. However, there is a caveat.
COVID-19 has killed more than 233,000 globally and 63,000 in the United States, according to CNN. Death has been a significant conversation during the pandemic, but how are people honoring the dead and social distancing? Thankfully, there are a variety of options for grieving hearts.
Remember the good ole days when you were able to meet up with someone after matching with them on a dating app or casually meet someone at a happy hour after work?
Unfortunately, with COVID-19 spreading so rapidly that people everywhere are being encouraged to stay home, no one can meet up for dates after swiping right.
Since in-person contact is being heavily restricted, I couldn’t help but wonder if online dating was even worth the time anymore. Surprisingly, it is!
When Salma Hayek wrote about how Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her in a New York Times Op-Ed article, I took notice. I was shocked that a woman of her status came forward about her sexual assault experience because women with a certain status I grew up around took another approach.
I watched women who were violated keep a good face in public to avoid people getting in their business. In the age of the #MeToo movement, however, that narrative is drastically changing. Powerful men are paying for their non-consensual acts against women. The most recent example is Harvey Weinstein's case.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year as most people are making plans to enjoy the holiday season. While this is an amazing opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones, it can also be an annoying time if you are single. Even though you may be thriving in your career, friends, family and coworkers may start asking in-depth questions about your love life.
So, what are single gals to do when they are invited to holiday events but don’t want to be asked invasive questions about their relationship status?
Thankfully, Nicole Moore has some answers...
Abortion has been a topic of discussion since the infamous Roe vs. Wade case in 1973. The conversation intensified this year when Georgia passed a bill banning abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy and Alabama passed the most restrictive abortion law in the country.
According to the New York Times, “[Alabama’s] legislation bans abortions at every stage of pregnancy and criminalizes the procedure for doctors, who could be charged with felonies and face up to 99 years in prison. It includes an exception for cases when the mother’s life is at serious risk, but not for...
While Megan Thee Stallion dubbed Summer 2019 a Hot Girl Summer, I felt lukewarm about mine. Before the summer, I had a well-paid freelance writing client and a part-time job while I was building my erotic coaching business.
When summer hit, my client decided not to renew my contract. I was overwhelmed with discouragement and left with a part-time income. I also received snide comments about being a sex coach before my client’s decision, which made me question my capabilities.

Overlooked is a ground-breaking multi-media project created by Amisha “Amy” Padnani, the digital editor of the New York Times obituary section, in collaboration with New York Times’ first gender editor, Jessica Bennett, to tell the stories of several historical women who, for whatever reason, were “overlooked” by the New York Times’ obituary section. The women highlighted include:
Ida B Wells, a journalist who reported on lynching and advocated again...
The first time I heard someone refer to themselves as nonbinary I was in college. I had an acquaintance on my college campus, who I met as a female, but then later started identifying herself as male.
I graduated college in 2014 and since then the world has become more aware of the transgender and nonbinary community. There are now shows like “Pose,” “I Am Cait” and “Strut” that allow transgender and nonbinary people to tell their stories. We also have brave politicians like Christine Hallquist, the first transgender nominee for the governor of Vermont, who ran for office during the recent...
Staying healthy, staying woke and balancing your job with your side hustle can be stressful. According to CNBC many women’s top priorities are living on their own, establishing a career and financial security. However, it’s imperative for women to also prioritize their mental health, especially important since depression and anxiety are more common in women, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
Black women experience the highest infant mortality rates among any racial or ethnic group in the United States, according to a recent segment on CBS. This is a direct result of social and economic disparities in our current health care system. Thankfully, organizations, like Black Mamas Matter Alliance, advocate, drive research, build power and shift culture for Black maternal health, rights, and justice.
The founding Black Mamas Matter Alliance Steering Committee members, Angela Doyinsola A...
Black women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the country, according to Forbes. While this is amazing, many of us who are freelancers or have our own businesses hustle so hard that we neglect our health. It also doesn’t help that many of us have mediocre insurance (or no insurance at all) that makes regular and emergency checkups costly. Unfortunately, hoping our health stays intact until our businesses turn a profit isn’t the best health care option.
