Rise Up! With self-care, not self-help

Spring is here! Surrounded by nature's beauty, I've been thinking a lot about self-care and how that creates SUSTAINABLE resistance! Part of what makes the Pussyhat Project a success is that it embraces fun and pleasure and joy. It's fun to put on a hat, it's a pleasure to give hats away, it was a joy to see the huge ...

Pink hats unite! #ICANTKEEPQUIET on April 8th. And neither should you.

When I created "the pink hat project" in November with Kat, Jayna, Aurora and the millions of other women and men who joined the cause, I had a very good friend alongside me, she is the first person I spoke out loud to about my idea, and we all know how special that is, that moment you first give voice ...

Comedy

The 6’3” guy who danced with me Friday called me yesterday. He’s a voiceover artist and a stand-up comedian so… he has a ridiculously sexy voice, and we had each other laughing a thousand times a minute.

It was a lot of fun, and it got me thinking, that in my private life since the election, I’ve started to laugh ...

Connecting Emotionally

Connecting Emotionally

I’ve been an overachieving, grade-grubbing, voraciously-reading student all my life, age 5 onward. My parents were super cheap and frugal about everything – we’d cut off mold from bread and eat the rest of the loaf, that type of thing. But the one thing that there was no budget cap on was books. If I wanted to read something, they’d ...

I have a mouth on me

I have a mouth on me. I find it helps to realize all the ways I've been silenced to find the bravery to speak up. Women (or any repressed minority), do some research and find disgusting statistics on how much airtime we get - on screen, at a work meeting, at a cocktail party. And realize you speaking up is ...

I am an American, born of immigrants

I am an American, born of immigrants

I am an American. I was born in New Jersey. My paternal grandfather immigrated to the US from Korea. (My dad was 9 years old when they moved to Tennessee, meet him and listen for that Southern accent.) My grandpa was a Yale Ph.D. and a brilliant mathematician. He was, in my words, a national treasure, one Korea would have ...

Deal Us In

Deal Us In. We’re playing again.

This morning (Day 2) I don’t quite feel as cheerful as I am in this picture but I feel the same tremendous love. I talked to both of these strong women last night – both LA friends but one is shadowing a director of the season finale of The Exorcist in Chicago, and another ...
