Study: 'Overwhelming Majority' of Women Don't Regret Their Abortions

A new study followed more than 600 women who had abortions over a three-year period to determine whether they regretted terminating their pregnancies.

New Poll Backs Statistic: 1 in 5 College Women Are Sexually Assaulted

A new poll done by the Washington Post and Kaiser Family Foundation backs the oft-quoted—and lately, often disputed—Justice Department statistic that one in five college women are sexually assaulted.

​The Longer You Procrastinate, the Worse Your Grade Will Be

I'm a pretty good procrastinator. Actually, a really good procrastinator. As in, I actually cannot start, work through, and/or finish an assignment unless I have adrenaline from the sheer anxiety and fear of not completing said assignment on time coursing through my veins.

Men Are From Bacon, Women Are From Lemons

Did you know men and women are different, because they are. They are so different that they even like different things. Men like meat, visual stuff. Women like lemons, feelings. It's a wonder it ever works, because meat and pictures and lemons and feelings go together like a tornado in a teacup without any good smells… » 8/20/14 1:00pm 8/20/14 1:00pm
