On a train-ride into Manhattan this morning, I wondered if you guys might be willing to help me with something. I want to learn more about female life -- what it is, how it feels, and what people enjoy. To the extent you're willing to talk, I'm eager to listen.
I'm going to start with one question and, depending on the response, may develop this into a series. My opening question to you is:
What is the best thing about being female?
Years ago, I asked a woman this question and her answer surprised me. She exclaimed with bright enthusiasm: "The clothes!" That answer probably doesn't surprise you since you're fashion-bloggers, but it was news to me. I hadn't anticipated that as a possible response.
What is your answer to this question? Is it fashion? Or the emotional bonding common among women? Or the ability to have children? Or something entirely different?
I'm curious. And grateful, if you want to share your thoughts.
