It's been a pretty excellent week on the Emma Watson front, first at Davos on behalf of HeForShe (killer speech, right?) and now in Tinseltown. It makes perfect sense to us that one of the world's best-known young feminists is set to play Disney's famed nose-buried-in-a-book leading lady. We're sure she'll totally nail it. After all, she's got a lot to work with: Belle—unlike other Disney dames scheming to get hitched (coughcoughCinderellacough)—wanted ... Read More
Yes, that is a shameless use of a cute kitty meant to reflect how snuggled up you are this very moment. Because ADULT SNOW DAY! What's the best part of getting snowed in? Making a mug of something warm and curling up with a great (feminist) movie, of course. Here are our top 11 flick picks (based not just on quality but also on streaming convenience) for your next few days. Ida Anna is a novice nun in Poland who travels home to visit her aunt, Wanda, prior ... Read More
Broad City, like the adjective in its title, is all over the place: It is laugh out loud physical comedy, wry observational humor, and an endearing tale of lady friendship all in one. Creators and Stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are seriously killing it as the hottest duo on television these days (yep, we said it and we meant it!). Lucky for us (and you, dear reader!), they are also the funny, fearsome cover ladies on our February/March 2015 issue. Pick up ... Read More
Mom and Dad know there's a storm a'comin' and they won't stop texting updates. While the crabby teen inside all of us is thinking GAHHH I HAVE THE INTERNET FOR THIS, there's also something super sweet about the concerned texts prying into our refrigerators, preferred modes of transportation, and (per usual) personal lives. Never fear, family: We will be taking the local train home, and will be living off vegan cheese and leftover pizza until further notice. Thank ... Read More
In an interview on Friday, Sarah Palin said that we can “absolutely say that [she is] seriously interested” in running for President. At the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines, she spoke on her love for America’s veterans, her support of Iowa senator Joni Ernst, and how President Obama is “just not that into” America. She also spoke very fervently on “stopping” Hillary Clinton, leading us to believe she might actually have ... Read More
We love coming across companies you can actually feel good about buying from: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is one of our favorite aromatic retailers, and everything they produce is tested on staff, friends, and family—never animals. They also use fair-trade and self-sustaining growers whenever possible. Not to mention the dozen or so independent artists commissioned to create their beautiful labels. How’s that for conscious consumerism? BPAL, owned and ... Read More
We’re really digging the new EP from Swedish trio OLD. We don’t know too much about OLD but they are fairly NEW and the band is comprised of 3 friends, Johanna Tham, Constance Holmbäck and, Nina Sigurd who started making music in their apartment in Malmö 2 years ago, recorded one EP and recently moved to a studio to record four new fun, feminist songs. I’m a sucker for 3 part harmonies but coupled with lyrics like “hormones stole ... Read More
Happy Monday! While you're sipping your coffee, maybe you also spend a few minutes going over what happened last week to launch you into this one, yes? Yes. LET'S DO THIS. Women in Congress are breaking records and taking names, and we're not just talking about the Notorious RBG. Hey, Hollywood might be working on its lack of diversity... or maybe not. A new fitness campaign is giving us great body positive vibes by reminding us 'to jiggle is to be.' Points for ... Read More
Emma Watson has warmed our hearts and empowered our vaginas once again!   Some of you may recall the speech she delivered at the UN earlier in 2014. It was there that she announced her campaign HeforShe, a "solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity.” Watson’s efforts have been doing just that: She was joined by UN leader Ban Ki-Moon who said, “HeForShe has ...

We feel like we’ve succeeded if, at some point during the day, we get you to say “Awww!” and “Fuck yeah!” at the same time. So now we would like to introduce 102 year-old Iona and 109 year-old Jessie Gallan, two women who are totally down with the important things in life. One of those important things? Kitties! Iona recently visited Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas, and left with her newest companion, Edward, and ... Read More
