Women Are Overburdened With Their Families’ “Mental Loads.” Here’s how one woman deals with that. Do you have strategies for handling the mental load and divvying up some of the “third shift” with your spouse or partner?
And you thought you had stories of bad roommates… “Worst Roommate Ever: ‘You’ve got your whole life in front of you. You’re pretty, you’ve got this house — well, you don’t have this house anymore. This house is my house.’”
I bet Michelle Obama’s messy ponytail bun at 45’s inauguration was the first thing many black women noticed (and appreciated).

We really like our athleisure wear: “The US is now buying more stretchy pants than blue jeans”
