Good for her, eh!

BY Web Intern in Feminizzle

Reading through our BUST Myspace page invites can prove a daunting task for us 'terns at the mag; going through club flyer after club flyer...and bday invites from peeps who rented out a club for their party (no kidding, we get a LOT!), until, of course, there's an event that speaks to us enough to tweet , hot date, research and blog about. The Feminist Porn Awards was one such invite. Hosted by Good For Her, the annual Feminist Porn Awards (in their 4th year ... Read More

I hadn't heard much lately about Knitta Please, so I was super stoked to hear the crew of 'guerilla' knitters that has been tagging up city light poles, signs, benches, and whatever else they can get their stitches on since 2005, is still at it. The group 'of ladies of all ages, nationalities, and... gender,' headed up by Magda Sayeg, who lives in Texas, will be covering 69 parking meter poles on Brooklyn's Montague Street with bright, hand-knit sleeves in May, as ...

Last year, we had the chance to speak to Isabella Rosellini about the series of short films she was doing for the Sundance Channel, called Green Porno. In that first series, she investigated the sex lives of insects. Now she's back with another Green Porno series.

The band Saint Bernadette is proof that it's possible to be as sweet as an angel and edgy as hell at the same time. Despite the saintly name, lead singer Meredith DiMenna's silky smooth vocals, and the fact that the band collects money for charity wherever it performs, what Saint Bernadette does best is thrash around on stage and belt out bad-to-the-bone, throwback-drenched tunes that will rock you to the core: 'Face-melting rock,' as Saint Bernadette describes ...

That's right, Kabul. Anywhere you go, courage is one of the most essential tools in your feminist-box. But the proverbial balls on these women could sink ships. April 15, they took to the streets to demand equality and oppose the passing of a recent law that legalizes marital rape. The resulting angry men throwing stones, screaming degrading epithets and spitting are pretty predictable. The most poignant part of this story, other than the sheer bravery of the ... Read More

I'll cover my mouth so I don't get rage all over my computer screen. This makes me so mad I can barely put words together. Fortunately, Kate Harding put plenty of words together on the topic that say everything I am thinking much better than I could. United is instituting a policy that would kick people off a full plane if someone on the staff decides they are too fat. Oh, and after they are kicked off and unnecessarily forced to wait, then they will have ... Read More
