  I have been following Dame Darcy's career for several years, ever since we met on a book and music tour with Lisa Crystal Carver. Dame Darcy has been writing and illustrating a hilariously mischievous and zany comic book series called Meat Cake since those wonder years, in addition to writing music; making films, videos, dolls and crafts; performing sea shanties on a banjo while dressed as a mermaid; producing shows; painting murals; hanging out with celebrities; freaking out jocks on reality TV shows; and, well, I...
Engaging lady voters is critical to winning the upcoming election—we are the majority of the population, after all—but looking at the “female vote” as a monolith ain’t the way to do it.

In short, it was ah-may-zing.   The panel (L to R): Dorothy...

In an explanation she left on the original post,...

We all know the famous 1945 photo of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square, celebrating the end of WWII. But though we’ve seen it on countless posters and T-shirts and purses and mousepads, it is not what it appears to be.     Feminist blog Crates & Ribbons posted a piece titled "The Kissing Sailor, or, 'The Selective Blindness of Rape Culture,'" in which the author observes that what the photo really shows is not romance but sexual assault. The woman in the photo, Greta Zimmer Friedman, has...
