Some people find it virtually impossible to be on time. No matter how important the event, they're always in a mad dash and get there late -- or just under the wire. Sound familiar?

Sure, we're worried about the economy, but just how much of an impact is it having on women's health? Actually, quite a lot
Take a look through the Labor Department's data on wages and you'll see an astonishing pattern. Nevermind modernity and women's liberation, men still make more than women in nearly all occupations.

I've often joked that children are the most stressful factor in a marriage, especially for those of us who juggle work and family. Rushed, conflicted and usually overwhelmed, mothers who toil outside the home feel there aren't enough hours in the day to keep up with parenting obligations, job duties and household chores. Life turns into a never-ending to-do list, a blaring alarm that's can't be quieted
After a few months' hiatus, I spoke to my best friend from childhood. Though we live hundreds of miles apart, we can tell each other anything, picking up the strands of various subplots -- children, siblings, work, health -- right where we left off. We vent, we rage, we analyze, we pick apart. We laugh. A lot. Mostly, though, we just let it all hang out. And my, my, my, that feels so dang good.
Can you both tend the home fires and stoke a high-powered career? Is it possible to juggle the third-grade play with the 11th-hour executive-board meeting? If you take a few years off to raise Suzy and Jose, can you still reach the office mountaintop? These are questions that have been on women's minds for decades, but over the years the so-called work-life balance has become the accepted formula for women who want to 'have it all.' Now comments by former General Electric CEO Jack Welch have reignited the old debate ...
Confusing times call for simple pleasures. It's the safest way to indulge with minimal payout. So now friends share frugal tips over store-brand coffee. Staycations have replaced the Riviera.

One strand became two, then three, then 219. At my mother's suggestion, I colored my tresses, and before long I found myself enslaved to a monthly ritual that unites women of every race and creed the world around. And once you begin, honey, there's no going back. Or is there? Lately I've been toying with a subversive idea: Going gray

This year's International Women's Day celebration was focused on work -- and making sure women across the world have access to the training and technology necessary to be a part of the global economy.

But this big orange orb is actually one of nature's nutritional powerhouses. Here are the top reasons this gourd's goodness is a treat you should indulge in all year
Megan Fox would seem to have it all. But in a recent interview, she confessed: 'I have no confidence, and because of that I'm always second-guessing myself.' You'd never guess it from her self-assurance in movies, on the red carpet and at photo shoots. Anyone can project A-list confidence, however, by following that old Hollywood mantra -- fake it till you make it. Here's how

It was April 15. I went and mailed my taxes. It felt surreal, doing this mundane civic chore on the day breast cancer took my mother.

Here's how to weigh the risks and rewards

Happiness, researchers say, has a U-shaped relationship with age. People are relatively happy until they're 18 -- then life happens. Mortgages, jobs, children, relationships, disappointments with a capital D. So that youthful feel-good quality heads south until one hits 50. After bottoming out in the early 50s, however, people grow steadily happier
I doubt today's working world is what the suffragettes were thinking of 100 years ago when they marched for a woman's right to vote and a few other crumbs of equality. I doubt, too, this is what mid-century feminists expected when they knocked on boardroom doors and corporate glass ceilings.
Women are different, at least in some ways, when it comes to money. For starters, they live longer than men, which means they'll likely outlive their spouse and manage their money on their own one day.
