Just in time for last night’s season premiere of Mad Men (which I haven’t watched yet, so don’t tell me anything!), Christina Hendricks, the lovely Joan Holloway (whatever, she will always be Holloway to me, married to a turd or not), is being hailed as a fantastic role model for women and girls by Britain’s Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone. She is “absolutely fabulous,” so it goes. Of course I cannot help but agree. This ... Read More

Saturday's Comicon is known as the "craziest day". Referring to the crowds of course. To me it's the most "exciting" as Saturday night hosts the convention's Masquerade Ball. Many people use this day to debut their best costume. Some of them work on them for weeks, some throughout the year. No matter what level the effort , it's the inspiration of the character being portrayed that shines through. Here are my favorite women of the day. The New Wonder WomanOe ma ke ... Read More

According to reports filed by the woman, the two met in a public street then later that day ... Read More

Since the series release in 1997, people of all ages have grown with the characters and have found immense inspiration from the author herself, JK Rowling. Last night hundreds of people camped out for the sneak preview and panel on the upcoming film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.   When I asked one fan what Harry Potter brought to her life she replied, "I ...

Day one. Adriana and I caught the 7:20am Amtrak to San Diego. Before reaching the entrance to the convention, we collected enough schwag to cloth a classroom full of Scott Pilgrim fans. I must admit the first day can be overwhelming. It's very hard for the brain to process a fantasy realm come to life. Seeing Ewoks in the bathroom and then meeting the cast of Star Trek the Next Generation was enough to make me wonder if I was on the holodeck. Can't wait for ... Read More

Justice Gone Wild

BY Sophie Johnson in Feminism

While dancing at the former Rum Jungle bar, a young woman's breasts were exposed for the GGW cameras when someone reached up and pulled her tank top down. Jane Doe, who was 20 at the time, is now married with two children and living in Missouri.

It took only 90 minutes for ... Read More
