The recent onslaught of attacks on women’s reproductive rights has been depressing, to say the very least. Lisa Edelstein, star of “House”, has fought back by starring in a “coat hanger” abortion ad. The ad made by MoveOn.org features Edelstein in 50’s garb as she narrates, “Decades ago, women suffered through horrifying back alley abortions. Or, they used dangerous methods when they had no other recourse. So when the ... Read More

Vanessa over at Feministing put it better than I could: it's time to fucking rally. Between that bill that would make it legal for doctors to deny life-saving abortions for their patients or the one that will defund Planned Parenthood and other women's health clinics, it's time.  If you're in NYC on February 26th, come down to Foley Square, across from the Court House in Lower Manhattan, and make your voice heard! RSVP on the Planned Parenthood NYC website ... Read More
There are so many things to love about elephants. These creatures are docile, cry, play, laugh, have amazing memories (they never forget, after all), yet are incredibly strong, and play a vital role in improving the ecological system they inhabit.

Rodarte Fall 2011 Collection

BY Laurie in Style

The palette was all earthy taupe's, pale blues and ... Read More
