A tale of two sexes

By Pamela White
It is the best of times. It is the worst of times. For women, that is. Women have more choices at this point in history than ever before, at least in some parts of the world. They're not always easy choices, but having choices sure beats living your entire life in ways predetermined by your sex.

Sluts like us

By Pamela White
The Canadian cop who uttered those words unleashed a shit storm, and not just because he found himself subject to a professional standards inquiry. He so outraged women in Toronto that they decided to take back the word 'slut' and to confront this anti-woman bias straight on.

Dead And Well-Read

Author Charlaine Harris tells Boulder Weekly about her new book, what’s in store for Sookie Stackhouse and what she thinks of HBO’s 'True Blood'

By Pamela White
So who is Harris, the writer behind this quirky vision of the future, in which vampires - not to mention werewolves, shape-shifters and other 'supes,' i.e., supernatural creatures - have 'come out of the coffin' and are struggling to live alongside humans?
