The Sweat-Soaked Life of a Glamorous Rockette — ONE after the other, like beautiful, glittering drones, the Rockettes spilled off an elevator onto the stage level at Radio City Music Hall. Dressed in sequined skating costume, their shoulders swaying, they sauntered down a narrow hallway and gathered off stage right, waiting to go on for the holiday show's opening night.

A Look at the World of the Miss Universe Pageant — Is there more to it than smiles and big hair?​ "Slow down, Kosovo! Kosovo! Slow. Down." Mirjeta Shala, Miss Kosovo 2015, is walking too briskly toward the edge of the stage at The AXIS Theater at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Rethinking the Work-Life Equation — Phyllis Moen, a sociologist who was widowed when her two children were young, has made a career studying the challenges of working full time while raising a family.

‘A Mother’s Reckoning,’ by Sue Klebold — Early on in her memoir, "A Mother's Reckoning," Sue Klebold recalls the most fateful day of her life, revealing, in some of the details, what seems to be a striking attunement to her 17-year-old son, Dylan. When he left for school that morning, he called out one word: "Bye."

Rachel Bloom’s Twisted Comedy — Quietly and without much notice, last fall the CW network aired what was most likely broadcast television's first-ever depiction of anal waxing. The scene, on the show "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," was not explicit, yet neither was it ambiguous. A young woman in her bathroom, wearing a short robe, leans forward and then reaches toward her backside with a wax strip in her hand.

21 Can't-Miss Stories On World Affairs From This Year — The Syrian refugee crisis, Greece's debt saga and brutal attacks by militants from the self-declared Islamic State are just a few of the complex topics that have dominated international headlines this year. Throughout 2015, journalists have tried to make sense of these events by writing deep dives that explore those stories.

The Displaced: Hana — At 4:45 in the morning on a Saturday in early August, stars were still bright in the sky above a refugee settlement in rural Lebanon where Hana Abdullah, a 12-year-old girl from Syria, now lives. The morning call to prayer floated down a dusty road and wound its way around the mostly silent tents.

Motherhood, Screened Off — My mother's address book is one of the small visual details of my childhood that I can perfectly conjure, although I am sure no photograph of it exists. Fake-leather-bound, filled with her formal, spidery script, it was, to me, barely legible, with addresses crossed out and replaced with new ones as friends' lives shifted.
