Yemen’s recent revolution posed many problems for the citizens of the country for many reasons, but one big problem was electricity. On some days, communities had only an hour's worth!

A group of 16-year-old girls from Sanaa decided to take matters into their own hands, and find new ways to live in the light. This group of young women joined an entrepreneurship program through their school, and...
  Who else is sick of seeing this sexist bullshit masquerading as tongue-in-cheek comedy all over the internet?

And what about author Jim Hines’ genius photo project ridiculing female character poses seen on most fantasy covers? His stiletto-wearing gams made us...
Last time we checked in on Miss Eaves (AKA Shanthony Exum) she was rapping about everything from kitties to NPR. Now she’s teaming up with Surfing Leons in a brand new video, looking fiercer than ever. No, there's no Nyan Cats flying around behind her this time, but it's still pretty awesome. With a backdrop that recalls a 40’s thriller and a backbeat that sounds like it was ripped out of an early 90’s arcade game, Miss Eaves raps hardcore about betrayal and revenge. And not...
