How’s Your Alone Time Going?

In a notice canceling Northeast Ohio’s next event, the email suggested some things to do in your newfound alone time.

  • Keep in touch with family and friends by phone, email, FaceTime, Facebook, etc.
  • Write them a letter like the governor suggests – write about a time in your life you haven’t told them about yet.
  • Start a journal.
  • Attack that pile of books you haven’t had time to read or get eBooks from the library.
  • Plan your garden.
  • Do a jigsaw puzzle.
  • Sew on those buttons.
  • Work in the yard.
  • Learn a language or take a class through the library databases – Mango and Lynda.
  • Watch a movie with Hoopla.
  • Try a new recipe.

There are so many things you can do. It will be fun when we do get back together hearing what everyone did.

The Cumulative Impact of Sexual Harassment

AAUW’s newest research report finds that workplace sexual harassment can take a toll on women’s physical and mental health, limit their job choices, reduce prospects for career development and even force them out of the workforce. These negative effects compound over time, reducing women’s lifetime earnings, and contributing to both the gender and retirement wage gaps, the report concludes.
