Ms. Magazine

I used to read back issues of Ms. Magazine in college. By then, back in the stone age that was my college years (haha!), it was considered too “grim and determined” and flat out too “serious” by some of my friends. Ironically, when it first started out, it was viewed as too pop and lightweight by hardline feminists. The mag broke many barriers and I think the many women writers and editors today — from “serious” journalists to “lighthearted” pundits of pop culture — owe it a great deal. I certainly wouldn’t be a writer and editor without it. It kicked open the doors. Happy 40th, Ms. Magazine!

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
