Phyllis Diller, celebrated comedienne, passed away this morning at the age of 95.  She will be missed terribly by the entertainment industry, by her fans, and of course by her friends and family.  She was a pioneer for funny women everywhere, her jokes unabashedly sassy, feisty and brazen.  She truly paved the way for other women entering the world of stand-up comedy, all while debunking the stereotype that women aren’t laugh-out-loud hilarious. Diller is perhaps best known for her stand-up act, in which she glided about...

Though she may play a pretty little liar on the small screen, the real-life Shay Mitchell has a heart of gold. Since November 2010, the actress has been raising awareness for the Somaly Mam Foundation, a non-profit founded by trafficking survivor Somaly Mam to aid victims of modern day slavery. Through her partnership with the organization, Mitchell has done quite remarkable things, including traveling to Cambodia to visit shelters and meeting with trafficking survivors. Most recently, the starlet created her own fundraising page to support the Somaly...

Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, a six-term member of Congress, wowed us on Sunday with his deep knowledge of the female body.  In an effort to explain his stance on abortion, the Republican nominee graced us with a biology lesson on women’s reproductive organs.  While I usually don’t look to politicians for my lessons on the birds and the bees, I’m so glad that I did this time, because now I know that my uterus has the power to fight off unwanted pregnancy from unwanted...

  In light of the recent verdict from a Moscow judge that put Russian feminist punk rock band, Pussy Riot, behind bars for two years, let’s take a look at the Russian media’s position on feminism.  A documentary made by Russian TV follows anti-feminist groups in different countries, as they conspire to fight "the war against feminism".  The documentary focuses on Switzerland, where men from different social interest organizations, including the Anti-(extreme)Feminist Interest Group (IGAF), and the men's rights groups, Men’s Swiss Party and Mannschaft, gather to...

I've been pretty obsessed with '90s fashion lately; and so, I decided to go straight to the source for some inspiration. The TV shows and movies from my childhood and tween years are a treasure trove of rad lady characters with killer style, and even though I definitely didn't think I'd be revisiting shows I used to watch on Nickelodeon for my current style, I've come to terms with the fact that inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places!
