The Year People Listened To Women Without Rolling Their Eyes

There has been headline after headline about how 2012 has been the "Year of Women." Some of them mean it in a nice way, while others imply that the "rise of women" equates to a war on men.

Although I couldn't be more ecstatic about the supposedly great championing achieved by my gender, I can't help but be a tad annoyed by the sentiment or maybe just the articulation.

One bride sported the whitest sweater I have ever seen. How does she get it so clean?

U.S. Only 80th In The World In Women’s Political Representation [Sugar Binge]

God, we suck. Rwanda is ranked one, Mexico is ten, the United Kingdom is fifty-eight. It seems the Western world has some backwards ideas about what progress means?

This interview she just did with Playboy is an example of that – she has some good things to say, but she's trying hard to seem cool and relatable.
