Monicas of the world, unite!
A new national support group has been formed to help you through these tough times, when "innocent good women have been heckled, ridiculed, shamed and maimed because they have the name Monica."
So says Mandy Stellman, a Milwaukee attorney and co-founder of Monicas With Attitude. Its purpose? To help women named Monica "celebrate their names" and "develop positive programs and activities that will preserve and promote the reputations that so many earlier Monicas have enjoyed."
Women with other monikers are welcome too. "We felt this is a backlash against all women, that everybody was smeared . . .," says Stellman.
Stellman said the name Monica comes from a Latin word meaning "advisor or nun."
