The mirror is a gathering place for women. We look at ourselves, adjust our hair, fix our makeup, and shift our undergarments, chatting about the stuff of life, before heading out into public. It’s a place where we can let our hair down and figure out how to put it back up again, where we can cry and fix our makeup. It’s the catalyst of a shared sisterhood. The Mirror seeks to be a gathering place for women to talk openly about what it means to be an authentic woman in the modern world.

We at The Mirror believe women have a lot to contribute to the professional world, as journalists, politicians, activists, teachers, scientists, doctors, lawyers. We value our rights to vote, to free speech and press, to religious liberty. We believe that faith and family are top priorities, and we take those responsibilities seriously. We don't believe we are empowered by the ability to neglect our children or divorce our husbands. We want to talk sensibly with each other about ourselves, our families, and our post-feminist world.

All opinions expressed at The Mirror reflect those of the author. Not every woman thinks the same way, and we encourage the conversation that comes from various perspectives.

Joy Pullmann is managing editor of School Reform News and an education research fellow at The Heartland Institute. She is also a 2013 Robert Novak journalism fellow and contributor to the American Enterprise Institute's Values and Capitalism blog. Her blog is at joypullmann.com. She lives with her husband and three tiny kids in Indiana.

Mary C. Tillotson is a national education reporter for Watchdog.org and has written for School Reform News, Budget and Tax News, and other publications at The Heartland Institute. She's written for Catholic Stand and Ignitum Today and has been published at Catholic Lane. She spent a year running around to several homes helping with homeschooling -- tutoring algebra and high school writing, chasing around a two-year-old. Before that, she reported and photographed for The St. Ignace News in northern Michigan, covering the local city council and writing features.

A Hillsdale College grad and Michigan native, she lives in Virginia with her husband, Luke. She tries to blog at The Earth and the Ether and has a Twitter handle, @MaryCTillotson, which she doesn't use that often because social media isn't really her thing.
