1920s Paris. Bohemian, artistic, full of expatriates and very, very queer. However, the history of queer expatriate women in France has been lost throughout the ages with all of the praise given Picasso, Matisse, and Dalí — just to name a few. In a new exhibition, the Smithsonian American Art Museum has brought one of those forgotten figures of queer bohemia, and her beautiful portraits, back to our attention. Romaine Brooks lived most of her life within Parisian counterculture, socializing with some of the wealthiest… Read more
Amy Schumer has been a pioneer for female comedians in the past few years, and her work has paid off. Forbes announced that the comedian made $17 million last year, making her the fourth highest paid comedian in the world, and the first woman to make the annual list. It's really no wonder when you consider the year Schumer has had; with her tour with Aziz Ansari, concluding her Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer, a new book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, a huge movie, Trainwreck, and a casual Super Bowl… Read more

25 Ways To Smash The Patriarchy — In Photos

By Roxanne Glick  In Arts  On Sep 29, 2016

What do you personally do to bring down the oppressive system of patriarchy? This is the question I posed to the attendees of the Twin Oaks Women's Gathering this August. As the voices of the women photographed reveal, there are infinite answers! 25 original ways to smash patriarchy are pictured here. The Women's Gathering is a DIY, non-corporate campout that welcomes women (in the broadest definition) from the East Coast region and beyond. It has been organized and hosted by Twin Oaks, an egalitarian intentional… Read more

On Selena Gomez's Lupus, From One Patient To Another

By Katie McCurdy  In Entertainment  On Sep 29, 2016

Recently, pop star Selena Gomez announced that she would be taking time off from her tour and music career to focus on her panic attacks, anxiety, and depression — side effects from her battle with SLE Lupus. After Gomez released the statement, thousands of people flocked to Twitter and Facebook to continue to question her lupus diagnosis, believing the illness to be a convenient excuse for a rehab stint or alcohol problem. Whether or not this is the case, there's no way of anyone really knowing — and this is exactly… Read more
RELIABLE WITH THE LADIES Daveed Diggs talks life after Hamilton, his hip-hop group, and that time his mom tried to give him sex advice. Daveed Diggs is standing in his underwear in a room full of women. In a few hours he’ll be on stage in front of hundreds of people who have paid upwards of $300 each to see him perform as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson on Broadway in Hamilton. But here, Diggs is changing back into his street clothes after his BUST photo shoot. I cast my eyes down to give him some privacy,… Read more

Inside The Largest Native American Protest Of Our Time

By Patricia Affriol  In Feminism  On Sep 29, 2016

Earlier this year, a small group of people gathered near the Missouri River, right outside the Standing Rock Sioux reservation. A few members of the tribe held a "spiritual protest," keeping a round-the-clock vigil and citing prayers to protect against the "black snake," or the Dakota Pipeline (DAPL). At the time, though, it appeared like a done deal: Paperwork was signed, construction was fast tracked and it seemed to many, just another case of Native American's rights and environmental concerns brushed aside. This… Read more
It’s difficult to imagine feminism without Gloria Steinem — her name is practically synonymous with the word. The achievements that brought her from being an unknown Smith grad to a household name are forever ingrained in the annals of feminist history. Today’s feminists owe a lot to this visionary activist, writer, and humanizing force for change. Steinem began her career as a journalist. In 1963, she wrote a piece for Show magazine about her experience working undercover as Playboy bunny. The resulting piece, “A… Read more
Emma Donoghue, best known for the novel and film Room, explores different territory in her new novel The Wonder. In a small village Ireland in 1859, we follow Lib, a nurse trained under Florence Nightingale, as she investigates the case of eleven-year-old Anna O’Donnell. Anna claims to have survived for four months with no food, and no drink except for a few sips of water each day. Her case is based on the real-life “fasting girls,” a largely (but not entirely) Catholic phenomenon where girls and young women claimed to… Read more

Jesse Williams Wants You To Vote, If You Needed More Convincing

By Kelly Walters  In Living  On Sep 29, 2016

Jesse Williams, Grey's Anatomy star and activist, is once again addressing political issues, this time in a video speaking to undecided voters. Williams released a PSA, "You Say Vote," on Tuesday as part of Joss Whedon's Save The Day super PAC. The video urged Americans to vote in the upcoming presidential election and stressed the importance of being involved in the voting process. Williams addressed multiple problematic viewpoints among voters, from people who won't vote because they don't like either candidate, to… Read more
More than 67% of American women are a size 14 or over, and yet only 2% of media images feature plus-size women. Refinery29, in partnership with Lane Bryant and Aerie, is looking to change that with The 67% Project. During the launch week of the initiative, 67% of bodies featured on the Refinery29 website, newsletter, and social media accounts will be plus-size. In doing so, Refinery29 hopes to normalize the reality that women's bodies are all different shapes and sizes. But in an attempt to make this a long-term change… Read more

How Having the Debate at My University Made Me Pro-Hillary

By Devon Preston  In Feminism  On Sep 28, 2016

If you told me six months ago that I would be planning to vote for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election, I probably would have told you that you were insane. Don’t get me wrong, I think that everything that Hillary has done for women is incredibly inspiring. Yet as a native Vermonter I have been Pro-Bernie since I first learned about socialist democracy during the fourth grade (it probably wasn’t that early, but I do remember learning about Eugene V. Debs during elementary school). Throughout the past year,… Read more

How Can You Make A Non-Sexist Public School Dress Code?

By Elleanor Chin  In Style  On Sep 28, 2016

How do you write an egalitarian, objectively enforceable dress code? How do you write such a dress code for 50,000 students between ages of 5 and 18 years, across nearly 80 separate institutions? This is how my local public school system, Portland Public Schools in Portland, Oregon (“PPS”), tackled the puzzle. In June 2015, some brave and articulate seventh grade girls, and one boy, testified before the PPS School Board about the ways their school disproportionately enforced the dress code against girls, resulting in… Read more

The Car For Women You Never Knew You Needed (Because You Don't)

By Kelly Walters  In Living  On Sep 28, 2016

Hey ladies, tired of having to drive around in your man cars day in and day out? Well, car manufacturer SEAT has teamed up with Cosmopolitan to find the solution. During London Fashion Week, the companies unveiled the Seat Mii by Cosmopolitan, a brand new "car for women." The Seat Mii has everything female drivers have been missing; jewel-effect rims, a handbag hook, and "eyeliner headlights," which accentuate the lights in the same way makeup would a woman's eye. (Still unclear if car eyeliner will be sold separately… Read more

When Anybody Who Was ANYBODY Had A Pet Parrot

By Mimi Matthews  In Living  On Sep 28, 2016

When thinking of 18th and 19th century pets, we inevitably imagine dogs or cats or small, caged canaries. Large and colorful exotic birds are not generally the type of animal we envision inhabiting the pages of a Georgian or Regency novel, much less an actual Georgian or Regency home. It may surprise you to learn that parrots were, in fact, quite popular as pets during the 18th and 19th centuries. One of the most famous parrots belonged to Colonel O’Kelly. He bought her in Bristol for one hundred guineas and, over the… Read more

This Artist Takes Fashion Inspiration From Frida Kahlo

By BUST Magazine  In Style  On Sep 28, 2016

Monica Canilao ARTIST | Oakland, CA Tell us about this outfit. The skirt came from a weird junk shop in Sebastopol, CA. The belt is from Mercy Vintage in Oakland. The bathing suit’s from ASOS and I added beadwork to its straps. The bag was from a friend who found it at an estate sale. The necklace was a birthday gift from a friend, as was the old beanie. I’m also wearing a gold metal crocheted bracelet made by my friend Arielle de Pinto. The earrings are by Buddha Jewelry. Where do you typically get your clothes and… Read more
A few weeks ago, I wrote about Mark Ruffalo’s major misstep in creating a movie about trans people without casting or consulting any trans people. The same day I published the post, I got an email — would I like to talk to Silas Howard, Transparent’s first trans director, about the issue? A big fan of Transparent, I of course said yes — and snuck in a few questions about season 3 as well. Please note: This interview happened just before the Emmys, which means Jeffrey Tambor hadn’t yet said that he would be happy if he… Read more
Photo via Rights4Girls Facebook When we talk about human trafficking, the phrase “child prostitute” will come up but these two words have created a terrible legal paradox, one that California has finally rectified. On the one hand, you have the word “child,” which implies someone under the age of 18, but it is coupled with “prostitute,” an illegal act that also implies some act of consent — something minors cannot do in the eyes of the law. Many victims of sex trafficking find themselves imprisoned rather than given… Read more
What comes to mind when you hear the word “nun?” If you’re like me, you think of The Sound of Music or Miss Clavel from the Madeline series — but you almost certainly don’t think of the Nepalese nuns from the Drupka Order. Thankfully, that’s all about to change — these badass nuns are gaining widespread media attention for their bicycle yatra, a nearly 2,500-mile pilgrimage from the Amitabha Drukpa Nunnery in Kathmandu to the town of Leh in northern India protesting the increase in human trafficking that has plagued… Read more

My Body For Sale: On Working In Retail

By Mo Johnson  In Feminism  On Sep 27, 2016

I ask a lot of things while working in retail. “What are you guys doing tonight?” “Where did you get that handbag?” “How’s the weather?” But today, I should have asked one of my clients, "Would you like me served raw, medium, or well done?" When I clocked in to work today, I became a piece of meat. A body for everyone’s disposal.Tanner, as I’ll call him because he had the glisten of decades of white male privilege, swaggered into the store escaping the blistering street. His too-tight gingham shirt puckered over his… Read more

5 Ways Hillary Clinton Vanquished Mansplaining At The Debate

By Patricia Affriol  In Feminism  On Sep 27, 2016

Last night's first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump resembled more of a reality TV show than an intellectual debate. Trump's misogynistic attacks caused a collective eye-rolling and outraged sighs from every feminist watching. It's no surprise, really. Trump is a reality TV star and a sexist pig. He certainly knows how to intimidate women and tries to knock them into their place with his belligerent language. Clinton, however, is no rookie. She hasn't endured 40 years of sexism to shrivel at the hands of… Read more
Amber Rose — Model, Actor, Designer, and Activist From the outside looking in, people assume Hillary Clinton and I have absolutely nothing in common. But I’m here to set the record straight and let them know why they are dead wrong. Here is my Top 10 List of what I have in common with hopefully our next president: 1. The F Word. We both proudly rep the F word and I am not referring to the one most would assume. Rather, I mean the one that my entire platform is dedicated to: Feminism. 2. Our Boxing Gloves Are On. We… Read more
John Oliver, America’s favorite news presenter, has come up with the perfect analogy for the way ethical failings tarnish a candidate’s reputation — they’re like raisins in a cookie (of course). And Oliver wants to make it very clear that, in the symbolic cookie that is Hillary Clinton’s would-be presidency, there are maybe a few raisins — but the cookie that is Donald Trump’s potential presidency (shudder) is less a cookie than a nightmarish raisin downpour. “This campaign has been dominated by scandals, but it is… Read more
When the news about Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce popped up on one of my favorite gossip sites, I winced. Not everyone hid the photos behind cut tags, and friends who should have known better kept sharing pictures of her face, or that video, on Facebook. But in all the discussions about her allegations of spousal abuse, all the essays that eloquently explained why we should believe her, there was one thing missing. Power. Or, rather, the discussion of a power imbalance. Whether its money, fame, opportunities or… Read more

10 Hand Drawn Postcards Document The Data of A Female Friendship

By Eleonor Botoman  In Arts  On Sep 27, 2016

Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec, both informational designers, decided to visualize data from their daily lives in the form of hand drawn postcards. At the time, Lupi was living in New York City and Posavec in London. As the pair corresponded for a year, forming a unique relationship based in art and data. These postcards are tiny maps of emotion, and as each artist draws out their life in new clusters and graphs, you see how their creative companionship blossoms. Each detail, from complaints to laughter, is… Read more

Olympia Hardcore Band G.L.O.S.S. Calls It Quits

By Alex Weiss  In Music  On Sep 27, 2016

“At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter to me what these critics or do-gooders think about this band because it’s not about them,” G.L.O.S.S. frontwoman, Sadie Switchblade, told me when I interviewed her over the summer. “While it is really great to make some money off of this band, the crux of playing in G.L.O.S.S. is about trying to exist in opposition to all of these elements of the world that would seek to round off our jagged edges and commodify us, to make us digestible and tolerable by the mainstream… Read more

When I was 17, I worked at a retail store part-time after school and on the weekends. For the most part, it was great fun. I was friends with many of my coworkers and we often hung out after work, going out to eat or to drink or to someone’s house. It was a time when adolescent experimentation and substances crossed paths, and saucy and regrettable things sometimes happened. Distinct from after-hours shenanigans, however, was a manager at the store who clearly crossed boundaries. At first, I thought it was just me he… Read more

I Do Not Pledge Allegiance To The Flag

By Lauren Ashley Week  In Living  On Sep 26, 2016

I still remember my discomfort as I stood from my desk every weekday morning. As I reached my right hand towards my chest, a hesitation lingered. With each familiar word, feelings of doubt manifested themselves, twisting the depths of my stomach and sitting heavy on my heart. I’ve always felt uneasy paying homage to our flag. Throughout elementary and middle school, I would force myself to proudly stand, place my hand upon my chest, and recite the (compulsorily) memorized lines of our Pledge. But, as I got older, I… Read more

This Is The Cutest Clitoris You Will Ever See

By Eleonor Botoman  In Movies  On Sep 26, 2016

“Then Sigmund Freud, the Number One enemy of the clitoris, invented the concept of the vaginal orgasm and decreed that a mature woman must find her pleasure exclusively through penetration. Thus began a wave of clitorial obscurantism.” Ah yes, the clitoris. Perhaps the most misunderstood part of female genitalia. Over the years, the clitoris has been the subject of numerous (mostly male-dominated) debates over its purpose and is usually kept out of conversations about orgasm and sexual health. Lori Malépart-Traversy, a… Read more

We Can't Wait To Binge-Watch 'Good Girls Revolt'

By Patricia Affriol  In Movies  On Sep 26, 2016

Amazon has released the trailer for Good Girls Revolt — and we get a look at the rampant sexism in New York's media industry in 1969. The series is inspired Lynn Povich's notable book The Good Girls Revolt, which details a sexual discrimination case in the 1960s. The enticing drama, starring Grace Gummer (as Nora Ephron), Genevieve Angelson (as Patti Robinson), and Anna Camp (as Jane Hollander), is about a group of young, determined female researchers who are beginning to reject the ridiculous sexist rules that keep… Read more
Finally, former BUST cover gal Jenny Slate is starring in a movie again, her first lead role since the brilliant 2014 film Obvious Child. In My Blind Brother — directed by Sophie Goodhart and out now — Slate plays Rose, a woman who dumps her fiancé only to see him get hit by a bus and die minutes later — and then she meets a new love interest at his wake. Soon, she finds herself in the center of a love triangle between two brothers, the loveable slacker/stoner Bill (Nick Kroll), and the arrogant, type-A athlete Robbie… Read more
Check out British director Sophie Goodhart’s IMDB page, and you’ll see quite a few credits under "Writer" and "Assistant Director," but under the “Director” heading, there are only two entries — and they have the same title. The first “My Blind Brother” was a short film Goodhart made back in 2003, inspired in part by her relationship with her sister, who has MS and uses a wheelchair. The second My Blind Brother is out now and stars Jenny Slate as a woman caught in a love triangle between the two brothers — an arrogant,… Read more

Do You Shave? On The Fur We Live In

By Isabel Dieppa  In Living  On Sep 26, 2016

The conversation about body hair started between my friend Alana and I one boring day at work. I was explaining to her how I had facial hair due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and I wanted to do laser hair removal. One year and several laser hair removal sessions later and we are on the cusp of opening our first-ever theatrical show, Do You Shave. I won’t tell you, dear reader, everything about the show, I don’t want to ruin the surprise! But in a nutshell, the show is a dance theater odyssey exploring the circus we… Read more
Sunday, October 2nd The Lady Parts Justice will be hosting their first live stream for The Golden Probes Awards from (Le) Poisson Rouge in NYC. Why shouldn’t you miss this? Because they will be hilarious! These awards were created to recognize “outstanding achievements in the fields of sexism and anto-abortion extremism” which means that they will be punching in the face all the terrible politics and laws that have been enacted across the U.S. We´re expecting this show to be as funny as the awards nominees categories… Read more
If you grew up during the '90s to early 2000s, you probably remember reading Girls’ Life, or as it was known back then, GL. Girls’ Life is a magazine for young girls ages 10 to 15. It’s basically the Bible for middle school girls these days and the precursor to Seventeen magazine, and then, later on Cosmopolitan. This is a magazine that has accompanied young girls for over twenty years, giving them the inside scoop on style, fitness, dating, and books. Yet despite the magazine’s wholesome image and mission to inspire… Read more

Why Bisexuals of All Genders Need Feminism

By Devon Preston  In Feminism  On Sep 23, 2016

This week, September 19th through the 26th marks bisexual awareness week; which is a week that aims to educate, inform, and inspire people about the bisexual community. Today, September 23rd, we celebrate Bisexuality Day, a holiday that was created eighteen years ago to promote bi-visibility. Bisexuality has become more common and according to a 2015 study by YouGov estimates that around 29% of 18 to 29-year-olds identify as not being 100% heterosexual. However, despite 1 in 3 people identifying as somewhat bisexual,… Read more

10 Women Photographers You Need To Know About

By Patricia Affriol  In Arts  On Sep 23, 2016

VICE Magazine's 15th annual photo issue is featuring exclusively women photographers — and we think it's great! The visibility of female artist is something we value here at BUST. This photo issue puts together 38 compelling artists that depict diverse narratives from all over the world with such a compassionate touch, that it challenges the way we see our globe. It's an intimate and provocative 184-page celebration of art created solely by women. VICE'S photo editor Elizabeth Renstrom writes in the opening letter that… Read more
Fey's Time Tina Fey is a woman who needs no introduction, and in this interview with BUST’s editor-in-chief, the legendary comedy icon reveals why being a teen in the ’80s was so much better, what still makes her nervous, and how she knows her daughter is powerful Try to imagine a world without Tina Fey. It isn’t easy. We would never have heard the words “third-wave feminist” uttered on a network sitcom, like we did on the pilot episode of 30 Rock. We wouldn’t have seen a raft of exceptional female comedians quickly… Read more

Why BUST Supports Hillary Clinton

By BUST Magazine  In Feminism  On Sep 23, 2016

As feminists, representation really matters to us. That’s why we started BUST in the first place, to showcase real women—smart, funny, cool, complex women—at a time when the media completely ignored them. And though it’s been a very heated election cycle, even here at BUST HQ—our staff contained both passionate Bernie and Hillary supporters all the way up through the primaries—we are now united in our belief that in the current field, Hillary is the best man for the job. She has her critics, and it’s true, she’s not… Read more
Both an actress and director, one could say that Sarah Polley comes by her creative and artistic genes naturally, being born into a showbiz family. Her father, Michael and her mother, Diane are both actors and met when they were both cast in a play. Polley started going on auditions at age four and landed her first role at six in the Disney film, One Magic Christmas. She’s stated in the past that her interest in acting at that early age was entirely self-motivated, but now a mother herself, she doesn’t believe in… Read more

11 Provocative Images By Women Artists Exploring Sexuality

By Eleonor Botoman  In Arts  On Sep 22, 2016

British artist Fionn Willson has curated a new exhibit on sexuality and sensuality in the female self-portraiture. “My Sex, My Self” is comprised of 14 women artists, all hailing from the UK. Wilson’s intention is to create “an exuberant and honest celebration and examination of ourselves as sexual beings, in a world where the expression of sexuality as a woman can still be seen as controversial, threatening or even subversive,” she explains. With this awesome collection of paintings, sculpture, and photography, Fionn,… Read more

Why I Won't Be Watching The 'Ghost In The Shell' Remake

By Eleonor Botoman  In Movies  On Sep 22, 2016

The Ghost In The Shell live-action remake recently released a series of teasers to start generating buzz for its 2017 release, but it’s left us with a lot more questions than answers. These ten-second clips don’t give us much to work with. As someone who is a big fan of the original animated film, I kept asking myself “what am I supposed to be looking at here?” and honestly, I still have no idea. These teasers are supposed to offer us a sneak peek inside the movie’s dark, sleek world but there’s no real plot reveals or… Read more
Earlier this week, I was scrolling through Twitter (like I do every day) when I saw this tweet: YIKES is right. As you can see from the screenshots, photographer Pax Jones noticed that the makeup brand ColourPop was giving its sculpting sticks for dark skin tones some pretty offensive names, like “Yikes” and “Typo.” While ColourPop’s sculpting sticks for light skin tones have some weird names as well — like “Gummy Bear” and “Illuminati” — the names for lighter sculpting sticks s don’t have the negative connotations… Read more
Alice Harvey (Emily VanCamp), the protagonist of The Girl in the Book, is a woman who is struggling to keep herself together and succeeding only by grasping at straws. At work, she edits novels with only the faintest hope of ever writing one of her own. When she is with her parents, her thoughts and words are ignored — her overbearing father decides what she will eat at the restaurant where they’re having dinner, along with how she will live her life. But when Alice is put in charge of the re-release of Waking Eyes,… Read more
Justin Trudeau continues to impress us with his commitment to challenging sexism. At a Global Fund conference organized by U2 singer Bono in Montreal on Tuesday, Trudeau, the 44-year-old Prime Minister of Canada/complete dreamboat delivered a stunningly woke speech about the link between sexism in poverty. “We know that poverty is sexist,” he says. “Women and girls living in poverty are less likely to get an education, more likely to suffer from diseases and almost always lack in basic social, political and economic… Read more

5 Reasons Why Feminists Should Watch Mary+Jane

By Devon Preston  In TV  On Sep 22, 2016

Looking to take a hit at a new show while Broad City is between seasons? MTV’s Mary+Jane may be exactly what you have been craving. Created by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, who also worked together on 2001’s girl cult classic Josie and The Pussycats, and produced by the one and only Snoop Dogg, this show follows two women in their 20s working to make it big in Los Angeles' legal marijuana industry. The show stars Jessica Rothe as the hesitant and innocent Paige and Scout Durwood as the explicit and raunchy Jordan,… Read more

Penis Trees, Penis Pets, And Other Myths About Witches And Dicks

By Rosa Schwartzburg  In Sex  On Sep 21, 2016

So, you may or may not have read the fabulous article posted by Broadly about witches from the Middle Ages, who allegedly stole penises and kept them as pets. Linking penises, religion, and the supernatural was commonplace in the Medieval cultural imagination — in fact, it was believed that the very real phenomenon of penis captivus, in which the phallus becomes lodged in an orifice, was a punishment from God for the sin of adultery. It's no wonder that in the Middle Ages the character of the ‘Witch’, whose… Read more
