“Something Bad” by Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood should be on in the background as you read this piece. Something bad has been happening in country music, and as usual, it’s hurting the ladies. It seems that booze, parking lot parties, and getting laid are what it is all about nowadays. Recently, country music has been dominated by men with a very specific agenda. Artists like Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and Lee Brice seem to dominate the charts with songs explicitly dehumanizing and objectifying...

I attended the first few days of the festival, which runs from July 3 to July 13 this year, and...

As a teen, she fell in with a gang and was sentenced to time at a...

Yesterday I was on Facebook, just scrolling through my news feed, when I happened upon an image that made me want to pump my fist and go ‘Yeah!’...but then irked me because I realized it wasn’t entirely accurate.  This doesn't tell the full story. The wage gap is obviously still a real problem; a white woman makes, on average, 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. However, single, childless white women earn closer to 90 cents per dollar. According to Full Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti, the...
