Changes

I’m about to update the template to something that is more accessible to more readers. Bear with us if a few things look wonky until the adjustment has been fully sorted out.

Netiquette

It’s pretty obvious from the structure of this site that there are some information pages that we wish people to read before they go on through the op-eds and FAQs contained in this blog-section. If what you write makes it obvious that you haven’t read the Introduction frontpage and the recommended links there before commenting […]

Is the tone too blunt, dear regulars?

What Is the Ask A Working Woman Survey? The survey is an opportunity for working women in America […]
