    Mini mani pedis: Where is the women's movement when you need it? [Letter]
    Let me say up front that I love my manicures and pedicures. Let me also say I am 83 years old. Somehow, your article "Mini mani pedi" (Aug. 7) struck a really negative chord with me. Where has the women's movement gone when we need it? I had hoped...

    Paternalism runs rampant in Ray Rice denunciations [Letter]
    In his commentary, "Ray Rice is not a victim" (July 31), Jacob Simpson sets us women back to pre-women's suffrage era. I understand he is a pastor and advocate against domestic violence, that's great, and I'm sure everyone he assists is grateful for that;...

    Pushy pro-lifers [Letter]
    Letter writer Mary Catalfamo claims that Planned Parenthood denies any pregnant women immediate, free access to the full spectrum of information and counseling ("Supreme Court decisions won't limit women's rights," July 9). It's hard for me to believe...

    Why does Md. subsidize non-public schools? [Letter]
    I'd feel better about Maryland's budget if the outgoing governor had not kept putting millions of dollars into aiding non-public schools over which we have little to no control and which serve mainly religious interests ("Warning signs for Md.'s budget,"...

    Stop griping and get a grip [Commentary]
    I came of age in 1980, just as the women's movement hit its full stride, and those were the days. At my first real job I had sign that read: "Women have to do twice as much to be thought of half as good as men; luckily, this is not difficult." Unlike...
