This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Mila Sanina, Executive Director of Public Source, to gain perspective on their positioning in our neighborhood. Public Source is an investigative news organization providing Pittsburghers with in-depth reporting on the environment, education, economic development and social justice.
Exactly three decades ago, in 1987, the U.S. Congress designated the month of March as Women’s History Month. While momentum for the designation had been building since the late 1970s, with several state departments of education developing curriculum materials to foster equality in our classrooms, the official declaration didn’t occur until 1987.
I recently returned from a cruise I took with my boyfriend, Jay, and his family. We went to the Grand Caymans for his brother's destination wedding and, afterwards, spent several days jaunting around the Western Caribbean. I have done my fair share of traveling, but until now had never had the chance to tour by massive floating vessel to lands of clear blue waters and palm trees.
