Mandy Boardman had noticed feelings of drowsiness.  She awoke one morning with a half dissolved pill in her mouth to see her husband, David Wise, leaving the room.  But she was not prepared to learn that Wise had been drugging and raping her repeatedly over the course of three years, a fact which she discovered when she found the sex tapes he had been making on his phone.  Shortly after this incident, police began a three year police investigation which culminated in a trial lasting through...

It's taken forever, but Abercrombie & Fitch has begun to see some (of the many...) errors of their ways. Or at least, they are pretending to see the light. And by that I mean that they have actually agreed to let light into their stores. Say bye bye to those blinds and hello to window displays. Woah. Who knew that customers liked to be able to see the clothes they were about to purchase? This is revolutionary, people. Along with the ability to see, Abercrombie...

Summer is well on its way and I might be falling victim to the annual frenzied, half-assed attempt to tone all the soft parts of my body. As automatic as my reaction is, I check myself: I must remember that I don’t have to be a size 4 to dress appropriately for the weather. I must remember that I dress for me and no one else. Unfortunately, women are bombarded by all these gross magazines that insist we get fit for summer because everyone will be...

Writing good poetry requires talent, but being able to deliver at Poetry Slams and bring people to tears is another thing entirely. A performance done by a woman named Samantha Peterson called “Dead Men Can’t Catcall” is floating around the web right now among my friends. After hearing the title, I knew I had to watch and share it. She performed this piece at CUPSI (College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational) this year at Finals. During her passionate performance, she asks her audience to see her...

Finding women in the comic book world is kind of like shucking oysters and suddenly finding a pearl. In a world of murky sexist content you might find 1 in 15 artists working on comics are female, and “female writers and artists are sporadic at best” says Tim Hanley, a comic book blogger. Breaking into the world of mainstream comics like DC or Marvel as a woman is difficult and hard to tolerate considering the rampant sexism and misogyny associated with these companies. That’s why female...
