Great Minds...Letter from our Business Manager, Lindsey Day -- March 11, 2013I was watching TV recently, and it seriously stressed me out. The show I was watching seemed to revolve around women tearing each other down and trying to halt each others' progress. Where was the spirit of collaboration, the discussion of ideas, the "it's business, not personal" mentality that I find in my own female peers?Eleanor Roosevelt once said,…
Water Cooler Convos // March 11, 2013 In recent years, there has been an increased focus on health from Washington DC, with the first lady herself spearheading the “Let’s Move” program which seeks to tackle burgeoning childhood obesity rates. President Obama has attempted to deal with this issue with his health reform bill, the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  After the bill was upheld by the Supreme Court in summer 2012,…
Immigration Reform // February 25, 2013Recently, President Obama came out "guns a blazing" on several campaign promises he made last year.

He has received accolades from some Congressional supporters, but has still faced…

Water Cooler Convos // February 10, 2013Sadly, tragedy due to gun violence is no unfamiliar foe in this country. Since the massacre in Newtown, Conn., where 20 school children and 6 adults were murdered by a single assailant, little has changed constitutionally or otherwise to thwart further violence. And, it seems, this lack of change may be the social narrative on this issue for the foreseeable future.Last year, two stories…
Opinion // February 4, 2013 Driving home the other day I listened to a blatantly ignorant phone call on my local radio station's broadcast of the Tom Sullivan show, during which a caller stated that Millennials were not well-informed and were not knowledgeable about politics. I am a Millennial. I am married to a Millennial. A majority of my peers and colleagues are also of the millennial generation. (Millennials, in…

Here at Made Woman, we'd like to switch things up a bit ourselves. You may notice that our newsletter look and format is a little different. Going forward, we'll be including a brief letter from the Made…
New Music // January 14, 2013Thursday, January 10, 2013 started off like any other day.  I woke up feeling a little under the weather, hit up 3 different stores looking for flavored coconut water in an attempt to hydrate, failed miserably at finding any at all (really, LA?), then arrived at work unable to find parking.  This, my friends, is clearly the life.As I rode the elevator up to my…
