Emoticon ;) might be the cutest movie title I've ever seen. It puts it all out there and let’s you know that this movie is going to be something different. The indie drama follows Elena (Livia De Paolis), a graduate student working on a thesis about “modern means of communication.” The plot examines her relationship with a much older man and the issues that can come up when dating a person very different from herself. She tries to hold everything together through school, a pregnancy scare,...
For the girls of Wasatch High School, dress code shaming doesn’t end with complaints about “too tight” leggings and “distracting” short skirts.

Her photographs often explore the tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. “I’m interested in the cognitive dissonance that can result from employing formal elements such as bright colors, decorative patterns, theatrical lighting, and characters or objects that reflect stereotypes of innocence, girlish femininity, and...
I’ll never understand the logic behind a society that both accepts the unnecessary sexualization of female bodies for advertisements and shames public breastfeeding. Seriously, it doesn’t make sense.

Women literally have been asked to stop feeding their hungry babies because it makes them uncomfortable to see a boob. But, it’s a little more than...
