Now that Jackie Rogowicz plays golf at Penn State, she's finding that her competition schedule has changed quite a bit. "It's weird," said Rogowicz, a Pennsbury High School graduate who is entering her sophomore season for the Nittany Lions. "It used to be like my summer was the golf season, now it's the fall and spring. " That didn't stop the 18-year-old Yardley resident from carding a 1-over-par 72 Monday on an overcast summer day in the opening round of qualifying for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship at Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Delaware County.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband of 10 years recently came out to me as a transwoman. She says she is a lesbian and wants to stay and make it work. I am trying to be supportive, but I am feeling betrayed and weirded-out and pretty sure I'm not a lesbian. When I hide my confusion, she's ecstatically happy to be her real self; when I mention some aspect of my unhappiness, she goes very quiet. I feel sad and alone and confused, and I don't know how much of that to let show.

Ask Polly Edelstein, artistic director of the Philadelphia Women's Theatre Festival, why female voices are important in the performing arts, and you'll get a sigh. "Oh, gosh, how long do you have?" Edelstein's festival was "born over drinks" in 2014, when she and friend Christine Petrini brainstormed about how best to help Philadelphia's talented female directors and playwrights. They lamented the gross disproportion of male to female leaders in theater, and they decided that, instead of opening their own company, they would throw a yearly event that highlighted women in the community.

WARNING TO those walking or jogging or looking for Pokemon characters along the Wissahickon Trail or anywhere along Kelly Drive. You might come across an Olympian and not even know it. Ajee' Wilson has been a Temple student since 2013, when she decided to turn pro and move to Philadelphia to be able to train more conveniently with coach Derek Thompson. She lives near the intersection of Washington Lane and Stenton Avenue. "Some people tell me it's Mount Airy, others say it's West Oak Lane," she said, laughing.

Kelly Whaley liked playing golf when she was a child but didn't always listen to everything her parents told her about the game, even if her mother, a former LPGA tour player who made history by competing in a PGA Tour event, was one of the top teaching pros in the country. "We did butt heads a lot," she said. But Whaley, 19, the daughter of Suzy Whaley, a former West Chester resident who is secretary of the PGA of America, accepted the advice and has developed into a fine college player.

A robo-adviser just for women? That's the latest step for Amanda Steinberg, the South Philly native who founded DailyWorth, a financial-advice newsletter with more than one million women subscribers. Last year, Steinberg expanded Chestnut Hill-based DailyWorth into financial advice and money management with the launch of WorthFM, which offers a pre-selected portfolio of eight exchange-traded funds. WorthFM is similar to robo-adviser start-ups such as Wealthfront or Betterment, with portfolios that are pre-selected and rebalanced automatically.

After scoring the gold-medal-winning goals at each of the last two Summer Olympics, what will Carli Lloyd do for an encore in Rio de Janeiro? "I guess I've got to score three or four," she joked in an exclusive interview with the Inquirer. Except she has already done that, too - in last summer's World Cup final. The truth is that Lloyd doesn't care what her impact is on the field as long as she's able to help the U.S. women's soccer team win another title. "I want to come away with a gold medal and am really just going to be going out there every game and working hard, doing everything possible to help my teammates," Lloyd said.

Decades ago, Peggy McCausland worked as a secretary in an office that felt a lot like the TV show Mad Men. "It was just rampant sexual harassment," she said. "So you just tolerated it because you had no choice. " Workplace culture has changed, said McCausland, now a lawyer and member of the Forum of Executive Women , a group of Philadelphia-area business leaders. But in many offices, she said, women still face sexual harassment and earn less than male colleagues.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Women's time has come I watched the Democratic National Convention on Monday with great excitement and sadness ("After a storm, calls for unity," Tuesday). After 50 years of unrelenting effort, and in spite of the prejudice against women in this country, Hillary Clinton has persevered with remarkable strength to finally arrive at the moment when the women of this country will no longer be denied our rightful place in the seats of power. That is the reason for my excitement, and as I listened to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, first lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and other speakers, I was proud of the party's deep bench compared with the embarrassing shallowness displayed at the Republican National Convention.

I'm looking forward to seeing Hillary Clinton make history when she's nominated for president this week at the Democratic National Convention. And I'm excited about the prospect of a Clinton presidency. Not just because I think Donald Trump is the wrong man for the job. But because Democrats and Republicans hate each other too much right now to come together - in Congress or in the town square. I think the impact of a female administration could get us playing nice again.
