The Women’s Agenda is a tangible declaration of how we will protect and defend our rights, safety, health and communities. Our Agenda will serve as a work plan to Congress and will create the road map we will use to mobilize our constituents into 2020 and beyond.

For the first time ever, APA is releasing guidelines to help psychologists work with men and boys.
At first blush, this may seem unnecessary. For decades, psychology focused on men (particularly white men), to the exclusion of all others. And men still dominate professionally and politically: As of 2018, 95.2 percent of chief operating officers at Fortune 500 companies were men. According to a 2017 analysis by Fortune, in 16 of the top companies, 80 percent of all high-ranking executives were male. Meanwhile, the 115th Congress, which began in 2017, was 81 percent male.

Food Connection – Making a Difference in Western North Carolina
Sarah Nowicki Nicholson in WNC Woman Magazine
I think we can all agree that no fresh food should ever end up in the trash while people are going hungry. I hadn’t been at my current job for more than one week as the Marketing Manager for UNC Asheville’s dining program before I heard about Food Connection and Flori Pate, the co-founder and creative director of Dig Local and co-founder and executive director of Food Connection. My limited understanding, at that time, can be summed up as, “okay – so, we wrap up any unused extra food from back of house, call this lady, and she’ll just come get it and donate it?” It sounded a little too good to be true.

Women’s work. The phrase usually conjures up domestic duties or occupations largely associated with women—such as teaching, nursing, or housekeeping. The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection upends those associations. By bringing together materials from across the centuries, Baskin reveals what has been hidden—that Western women have long pursued a startling range of careers and vocations and that through their work they have supported themselves, their families, and the causes they believed in.
Photo caption: Emöke B’Racz, right, said she has “total faith” in seventeen-year employee Gretchen Horn, left, as the new owner of Malaprop’s Bookstore/Cafe and Downtown Books & News. B’Racz will remain as founder and minority-owner of the business.
Veteran staff member Gretchen Horn became the majority owner of Malaprop’s Bookstore/Cafe and Downtown Books & News in January of 2019. Horn began working at Malaprop’s as a barista in 2001 and held the positions of Barista, Financial Manager, and Director of Finance and Operations. Despite the transition, B’Racz said she does not consider herself retired: “I don’t know how to retire. That’s my new job, to learn how to retire. But I’m up for it. I’m up for that challenge.”

In communities all over the world, circular recycling solutions provide a path to keeping plastic products out of our natural environments for good.
In the center of the Pacific Ocean, weighing more than 87,000 tons, is an amorphous vortex of trash known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. First discovered in the mid-1990s, it expands each year, collecting new pieces and particles. It’s just one striking example of how the world is experiencing a direct threat from excess consumer waste, demonstrating the urgent need for sustainable solutions. from The Washington Post January, 2019
