The Handmaid’s Tale is a Womens’ Only Hunger Games

The Handmaid’s Tale is really not so far fetched. I read the book by Margaret Atwood and watched the Hulu series and it’s not so dystopian after all. Also, I’m like two episodes behind so there will be no spoilers in this post. In case you’ve never heard of the not so dystopian 1985 best-selling…

Conference is an understatement as at a conference you stay and listen and the information you’ve gathered from it probably never leaves that venue. This was an eye opening experience full of so many positive women making boss moves. Although it was only three days,…

Pittsburgh has some areas it can improve on. Pittsburgh’s…
