Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.

Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.

Washington's Other Team: The D.C. Divas



Everyone who knows anything about Washington, D.C. knows how passionate we tend to be about our football team, the Redskins. (pay attention Real Housewives of D.C.) But last year was.... uhmmm.... PAINFULL and last night.... well, many of the die hard fans just couldn't bear to watch till the end....

But have no fear!!!! Once again, hope abounds.... Did we all forget? We have the D.C. Divas!!! Who knew? The D.C. Divas are members of the National Women's Football Association. Pictured above is D.C. Divas quarterback, Allyson Hamlin (look for additional details as A WashingtonWoman plans to get an interview with here in the near future). Home field is Landover's Prince Georges Sports & Learning Complex. Go Girl!!!! Do it like only a D.C. woman can.
