I have an addiction to buying journals. My latest purchase was a beautiful blue and gold number I found at The Strand over a year ago. I have written on exactly three pages. Since then, it has sat on a shelf next to other partially filled journals gathering dust. Recently, I pulled several of these journals out and read them. Some of them had entries that went back more than a decade. I was such a naive babe in the woods! I made a mental...

Tuesday night, tattoo artist Ryan Ashley Malarkey became the first woman in eight seasons to win the coveted title of Ink Master. Prior to this season of Ink Master, women had yet to dominate and time and time again, male artists ended up on top. However, Malarkey defied the odds by proving that gender has nothing to do with artistic talent and feminism can make a positive difference in a competitive setting. It is important to recognize that although Malarkey is an extremely talented artist as...

For the latest in our series on women photographers, Lady Shooters, Tara Wray interviews LA-based street photographer Michelle Groskopf Can you tell the readers of BUST Magazine what you do? And describe how you came to be the photographer you are today? My work is an almost anthropological account of how I see the world, or at least the faces and details that draw my attention while I go about my day. It’s me saying, “Look at this face, isn’t it striking? Look at these hands, look...

For the next few weeks in New York City, you can freely visit women in prison. Talented women, glamorous women, proud women, and regular women —they’re all there, as portraits by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz.

I can’t recall when the lump fully developed. It’s not visible in its shadow, but it follows me the way uncertainty follows a curious mind. In the United States, nearly 1 in 8 million women will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.

My mother is one of 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Her sister, Amalia, conquered the same malicious...

Art has long been used as a means to express a culture's current political ideals—for example, most Americans are able to recognize the Barack Obama "Hope" poster that iconized Obama's 2008 campaign for the presidency.

Just yesterday, Polish-born fiber artist, Crocheted Olek, debuted her latest masterpiece—an enormous crochet billboard dedicated to Hillary Clinton and her...
