On Tuesday September 17th, TIME named Nancy Gibbs its new managing editor, as The New York Times reports. Gibbs is the first woman to be given this position in the magazine’s 90-year history. Can we all just revel in this glory, with a big YAY FOR LADIES IN PRINT MEDIA!
Gibbs started as a TIME fact-checker 28 years ago, and over the course of working for the mag, she’s written more cover stories (ahem, 174 to be exact) than any ... Read More

I’ll tell the story of “The Battle of the Sexes” the way it was told to me as a little girl on my way to my first national horse show. My father explained to me:

This week's Time magazine cover story about Bill Sears has everyone up in arms. Even though the article is about Sears himself, the cover image shows a woman breastfeeding her large child, and the headline "Are you Mom Enough?' seems to be screaming "Lady, you are a freak!" Even though the boy on the cover is apparently 3 years old, he looks to be about 5 or 6. Folks are saying this is pedophilia, and perverted. While everyone ... Read More

Despite my issues with TIME magazine, I love the annual “Most Influential” people list. Maybe it’s because it brings to my attention people around the world who are making changes (both positive and negative), or maybe it’s because they named me “Person of the Year” in 2006.

Imagine you’re on the elliptical at the gym or biking to work thinking about Snooki’s pregnancy, Obama, and global warming when you feel a twitch right under your biking shorts. The good twitch. You start to breath a little deeper and the tingles start building, like the rapid ticks of a time bomb. You know what’s going on with your body, but why here? Why NOW?
No, this isn’t my attempt at a BUST One-Handed Read; a ... Read More

If you walked by any sort of newsstand this past week or spent any amount of time on the internet, you’ve seen the newest cover of TIME Magazine. If not, you should.The story at its most basic is this: 18-year-old Bibi Aisha ran away from her Taliban-connected husband’s and in-laws’ home, where she lived in a barn with livestock and was treated like a slave. About a year ago, her husband found her in Kandahar, and in the ... Read More
