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.

High Percentage of Women Are Working Moms

Washington, D.C. has one of the highest populations of professional working women in the country. Many of these working women are moms and some are wives. Hey some are actually wives and moms. So just how do we pull it off? We aren't unlike women all over the country except for one dynamic: we are doing it in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Washington, D.C. just recieved some rather dubious recognitions. For example we spend more time in traffic than most others; we are apparently some of the rudest folk; we are very ambitious as we have one of the most educated populations and the distinctions go on and on. We are unique also as we are the seat of power in one of the most powerful cities on the planet. No pressure there. Actually, lot's of pressure there.

Over the next few days, I will be speaking with a variety of women who are coping with the uniqueness of our city while they raise families and earn incomes.
