Couples really benefit from therapy. Self-help books, TV, movies and commercials are all about relationships. We are a species that needs relationships; most of the happiest folks are those who have found good friendships as well as a close emotionally intimate relationship. This is a complicated union, and a marital relationship often needs help to guide it through developmental phases so it can progress to the warm, loving comfort of a good marriage.

“Dominion uses drones, hidden and handheld cameras to expose the dark underbelly of modern animal agriculture, questioning the morality and validity of humankind’s dominion over the animal kingdom.”

Women and Power isn’t a series about women’s empowerment. It’s a series about women and their relationship to power — how they get it, how they lose it, how they wield it, what they sacrifice for it, and, ultimately, what they hope power will help them achieve. It’s divided into four chapters that will be published on the Cut throughout the week. Click here to read more about the project and the women who participated.

Americans are hurting as their country descends into dysfunction, polarization and widespread anger. Democrats are feeling an extra dose of despair with the elevation of the intemperate and partisan Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“It would be naive to depend on the Supreme Court to defend the rights of poor people, women, people of color, dissenters of all kinds. Those rights only come alive when citizens organize, protest, demonstrate, strike, boycott, rebel, and violate the law in order to uphold justice.”

What can a man say to a woman on the street these days without fear of prosecution? Ever since campaigners and police forces started talking about treating the public harassment of women as a hate crime, there has been an equal and opposite push to defend some bloke’s right to … what exactly? Shout a catalogue of sexually explicit demands at a stranger while following her down a street at midnight? Exchange friendly observations about the state of the weather in a shop queue in daylight?
As with #MeToo, this is far less complicated than some would like us to imagine.
