When you think of the stereotypical computer technician what usually comes to mind? If you’re like me, you’re probably imagining some sort of nerdy Bill Gates look alike with wire-rimmed-glasses and a meager waistline.

Co-written by Hollywood power couple Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, directed by Falcone, and starring McCarthy as the titular Tammy, this rowdy road-trip flick is everything female fans hoped it would be. Most scenes pass the “Bechdel Test” with flying colors (meaning they involve at least two women talking to each other about something other than men). The script maximizes McCarthy’s supernatural physical comedy abilities while minimizing the kind of lame fat jokes that have plagued her in less shrewdly scripted projects. And the supporting...

Peterson, who just graduated in June, took several photos of herself mocking,...

According to Alyssa Croft’s new study in Psychological Science, findings suggest that when domestic chores are split equally between parents, daughters typically have greater career aspirations. Croft, a Ph.D Candidate at the University of British Columbia, remarks that, “This study is important because it suggests that achieving gender equality at home may be one way to inspire young women to set...
