She has recently produced several short and evening-length dance theater pieces, which can be found on her website. She is also one half of the outrageous burlesque and acrobatic act the Wau Wau...

I tend to get really upset and frustrated when I hear any news about child prostitution.  Well, last week a conference on women’s rights discussed how the economic crisis was affecting prostitution.  One of the most unsettling effects of the global economic situation is that younger and younger girls are being forced into the sex trade. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) released some figures earlier this year that showed about 21 million people (that’s three out of 1,000 people globally) are forced into labor.  That means...

Last Friday, I met singer/songwriter/maestro Erin Barra before she played the Paperbox Theatre in Brooklyn. I get really excited about strong, female musicians. But as pumped as I was to meet her, I didn’t expect to have her songs running through my head for the entire rest of the weekend. She tells me during our interview that she’s constantly hearing “you don’t look the way you sound.” With her shock of red hair and sharp, green eyes, perhaps she doesn’t fit the image associated with...

It comes as no surprise that America’s laws regarding teens and sex are bonkers and a half. The subject of sexuality in people under the age of 18 is still considered taboo by many Americans, and is simply unfathomable to others. The lack of effective legislation where minors and sex are concerned becomes glaringly obvious in the case of sexual assault, a lesson that those on the receiving end of this violence learn the hard way.  This week, Newsweek related the story of Savannah Dietrich, a...
