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.

World Cup Soccer Became Personal Thanks To D.C. United's Women's Soccer Team!

Women's D.C. United Soccer woke up a sleepy, hot Washington summer when they turned up in the quarterfinals with a win against Brazil. The women gave fans throughout the city and the country something to shout about, and shout they did. By now everyone knows that ulitmately the team succumbed to the deserving victors from the Japanese team. Yes the loss was painful, but the effort was great. D.C. United gave it their best and represented like on AWashingtonWoman can. No regrets and still basking in the accomplishment and joy that their efforts brought to Washington, D.C.
