We all know how dangerous internalized misogyny can be. Patriarchal culture can often result in women doing and saying things that aren't very supportive of our fellow ladies. Like slut-shaming.

Rocks in My Pockets is an animated movie for adults that poses the question, “How do you stay sane in this crazy world?”  While this particular line of thinking is nothing new, the film, funded by over 800 Kickstarter contributions, searches for answers via five women and their personal battles with depression and suicide.

Whoa! What was that?! Kimbra's music video for "90s Music" is 100% in the 21st century. Internet commenters who lament the unoriginality of the new music video, directed by Justin Francis, probably didn't grow up in the 90s or get the various pop culture references peppered throughout. You might say that making a video which spoofs or examines these things is unoriginal since the 90s are so trendy right now. But I think Kimbra is trying to explore our fascination with the 90s and nostalgia in...
