Sixteen female senators have sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell requesting that the NFL adopt a zero-tolerance policy against domestic violence. Goodell recently instituted a policy with a six-game suspension for first-time domestic violence offenders and a lifetime ban with the possibility of reinstatement after a year for second offenses. The letter to Goodell, also sent to The Baltimore Sun, follows former Ravens running back Ray Rice being indefinitely suspended for his domestic violence incident, for which he was charged with felony aggravated assault.

In the beginning, there was the skirt, Nancy Drew.Next, dames started saturating television like tears soaking a hanky. "Remington Steele," "Moonlighting" and "Murder, She Wrote" all boasted Bettys solving crimes the big boys couldn't -- or wouldn't -- touch.Now, the big screen has gone dizzy over doll detectives with "V.I. Warshawski," a movie about a glam-gammed gumshoe who springs to work for "a dollar and a just cause." Her job includes computer hacking, a high-speed boat chase, getting beat up and shot at, kidnapping and murder.

After poring through 20 boxes of Betsy Bonaparte's correspondence at the Maryland Historical Society, Natalie Wexler's heart sank. In 2005, Wexler had been captivated by a portrait she'd seen of the Baltimore-born beauty, who wed Jerome Bonaparte, Napoleon's youngest brother, against the French emperor's wishes. Wexler is an author, a historian and an attorney. She itched to tell Betsy's story - until she started reading the letters. "Betsy was really not a very pleasant person," says Wexler, now 59 and a Washington resident.

BOSTON -- By now you may think that "San Francisco Liberal" is her last name. "Nancy Pelosi San Francisco Liberal" is being used to frighten voters everywhere from Indiana to Georgia. She's caricatured as "Michael Moore," "a specter hanging like a cloud over America," and a woman waiting to rule the country with "illegal immigrants" and a "radical homosexual agenda." But if being demonized is the price for power, Ms. Pelosi is willing to pay it. The Democratic leader may not be renowned for delivering the party message, but she's great at keeping the House Democrats on message.

Buying a new lacrosse stick for a you female player? Some things to remember (and remember, sticks for males are different; last week's Clinic offered advice): * Sticks must be between 35.5 and 43.25 inches long. The head must be 7 to 9 inches wide. The head on a goalie's stick can be up to 12 inches wide. Shorter is relatively better for youth players. * The stick is made of wood, laminated wood or synthetic material. * The pocket must be strung traditionally; no mesh, as male rules permit.

Maryland's new crabbing restrictions succeeded in reducing the catch of female crabs significantly last year, state officials said yesterday, despite reports from watermen that their harvest increased by 50 percent. State fisheries officials said that based on independent surveys, they estimate the female crab harvest in Maryland declined by 28 percent to 36 percent. Prompted by surveys indicating that the Chesapeake Bay's crab population was dangerously low, Maryland and Virginia both pledged last year to reduce the female crab catch by 34 percent.

So far in my seven-year career, I've had - count them - one female boss who has directly supervised me. It's even harder to think of many top-tier female managers I know. I point this out not because I don't like male managers, but because my experience seems to reflect a larger concern about the dearth of female leaders in corporate America. Despite some highly publicized appointments of women in executive roles during the past year, a new study of women corporate officers, top earners and directors in Fortune 500 companies shows that the number of females holding corporate officer positions declined in 2006.

The national nonprofit group supports women who are dealing with the transition from paid employment to at-home motherhood.

When Lisa Harris Jones launched her law firm 14 years ago, she used the only money she saw as an option - her own. Harris Jones said she founded Harris Jones & Malone with $7,000 on the belief that "if I can't buy it flat out, then I don't need it. " It has grown into a lobbying firm that takes in millions of dollars a year. "There's nothing in this office that's on credit," said Harris Jones of the Charles Village firm. Harris Jones isn't alone in the way she funded her business; many female entrepreneurs never seek capital from others.

When your father, two uncles and both grandfathers served as pilots, your career seems destined to take flight. Marine Capt. Katie Higgins not only followed in the footsteps of her family members, but this week she was named to the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, also known as the Blue Angels. With her first show flight sometime next spring, the 2008 Naval Academy graduate said she could become first woman to perform in Blue Angels history. The Blue Angels are considered one of the most elite outfits in U.S. military aviation, and the addition of a female pilot to its ranks is both historically significant and no small feat, said Robert Thomas, the curator of the National Military History Center in Indiana.

About 40 covers of songs originally performed by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, the Shirelles, and the Supremes are packed into this work, all delivered with intense commitment and energy.

The Maryland Zoo is calling all birds of a feather to help name its new bald eagle. The contest, which opened on Independence Day and runs through July 14, is asking the public to name its newest avian resident, a female eagle found in North Carolina in 2009 that is estimated to be about 5-years-old. Though efforts were made to rehabilitate the bird, it was determined that she wouldn't be likely to survive if released back into the wild, according to the zoo's website. The zoo's staff previously selected five finalists: Annie (for gunfighter Annie Oakley)

It has taken me almost 50 years to realize a very basic concept: I should be grateful for my body and not despise it. Yet there are times like the beginning of summer and swimsuit season where I struggle for rationality. My body has, after all, carried me around faithfully for almost half a century. It has fought off infections, borne me up through fatigue, stress and trials. It has brought four healthy boys into the world and nursed them with vital nutrition, and it has supported me as I faced the challenges of being a working mom. Like most women, I understand that hating my body isn't right.

I'M NOT saying this is good or bad, but there is an insect, a praying mantis to be exact, that decapitates her mate during sex. Reproductively speaking, this is not bad news. The male mantis' brain acts as an inhibitor of sorts; once it is gone, so is any restraint, and his headless body bends in intense copulatory movements.Then the female eats him.Now.How many of us remember high school biology classes, ones in which we observed the results of Luther Burbank's sweet pea genetics, dissected fetal pigs and charted the generations of fruit flies?

WASHINGTON - The Navy has issued orders to replace urinals on the surface fleet with a "gender-neutral" commode, known as the "Stainless Sanitary Space System." Within several years, 3,000 "heads," or bathrooms, are to be converted, at a projected cost of $187,000 apiece, to a new modular design that is easier to clean, cheaper to maintain, and more suitable for female crew members. A single bathroom can contain several commodes. Republican Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett of Maryland said he intends to launch an investigation because he fears the conversion could hurt military readiness.

Linda Rice had tried college, lasting a couple of years at Penn State while realizing that studying bloodlines, speed ratings and past performance charts for horses interested her far more than what she was studying in computer science classes. "I knew my future was somewhere else," she said. Rice returned to the family farm near Harrisburg, Pa., and went back to the life she knew growing up, when she worked with her father, Clyde, a successful trainer, her mother, Jean, and her three brothers on horse farms in Wisconsin, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
