I’m back!

Back from the wedding! Book review to come tomorrow, and stay tuned for the Woman of the Week! In the meantime…check out this article– I’m not too sure what to think of it so far. Kudos to Dr. Pepper for realizing that not all women want to drink diet soft drinks, but does the slogan really need to be “not for women”?? And why does the can have bullets on it? Dr.Pepper Ten

Holy Matrimony, Batman!

OK, so here’s the deal- I’m going to a wedding this weekend, and I figured why not talk about the history of weddings around the world? Most specifically, the vows. Even more specifically, the word “obey”. Let’s look at that word one more time– OBEY. That’s a lot to promise, in my book. I admit, I’ve never been married, but does it really take a ring and a cake to know that promising to obey someone for the rest of your life is not okay? Like, what if your husband tells you that every day for the rest of [...] Continue Reading…

Woman of the Week! Victoria Murphy

Woohoo! This is my first Woman of the Week! Basically I’m going around in Danville and talking to the women that I think need some recognition and deserve a week for all of us to fawn over them. Check out my little chat with the manager of Harvesting Hope, Victoria Murphy.
“I honestly never thought about this kind of work at all. Like, ever.” Unusual words for the manager of the local food pantry, Harvesting Hope, but her words all the same. Don’t misunderstand though, Victoria Murphy loves her job and finds it rewarding in ways she never imagined. A [...] Continue Reading…

Review: The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

The name Brigham Young no doubt sounds familiar to many people, the university, the Church- but where did he come from? What’s his deal? In David Ebershoff’s “The 19th Wife” the life of Brighman Young is explained amplified to the point of including excerpts from his prison diary. The story has several intertwining stories involved: a modern-day murder mystery within a polygamist colony, the story of Ann Eliza Young, a graduate student’s research paper, and several other lectures and accounts of goings on during that time period.

One of narratives revolves around a 20 year old boy, Jordan who [...] Continue Reading…

Seriously?

So, I was bored online the other day when I came across these AODRABLE ads from the 50′s. CHeck this one out- it in particular stood out to me

Right? Sooo cute! Now, look at this– over 60 years later and we’re still using the same advertising techniques.

Is this real life? What do these ads say to you? I’ll tell you what they say to me : “If I were a guy and I wanted to have power over someone it would be easy peasy lemon squeezy”. Aren’t the people in the marketing business supposed to be majorly creative and [...] Continue Reading…

Glass Ceiling

When I first started this blog, I kept asking myself- what makes me mad? What really gets me hot under the collar, ya know? Several things popped into my head- Gilmore Girls going off the air, the number of calories in a pint of Ben and Jerrys, why William H. Macy won’t return my emails- the list could go on for days. Then it hit me- literally- the glass ceiling. If you’re going to have a women’s lib blog you might as well start at the top with everyone else.  According to thousands of articles, scholarly journals and politicians- [...] Continue Reading…

My Mission

Hi, everyone! My name is Katie Nedvidek and I live in Danville, KY.  What do I love to do more than anything? Talk. Do people always listen? No. Should I start putting my thoughts online so anyone and everyone can read them and I don’t have to deal with the rejection? Duh. I know what we’ll talk about- women. Gals. Dolls. Chicks. Battleaxes. Dames. The whole shebang.  Let’s be real- we’ve come pretty far thanks to the suffragettes and several generations before us…but how far is far enough? The object of this blog is to explore a couple of [...] Continue Reading…
