“Kickball Katy” Goodman is perhaps best known for her work with Brooklyn lo-fi queens Vivian Girls, but on Sees the Light, her sophomore solo effort as La Sera, she shows off a softer side that’s more croquet than kickball. Album opener “Love That’s Gone” is a lilting, ’90s-style ballad full of melodic guitar lines and sweet, distortion-free vocals. “I Can’t Keep You in My Mind” is a heartfelt anthem to losing interest, while “Please Be My Third Eye” is a poppy, upbeat jam perfect for...
Last month, Texas lost the Medicaid Women’s Health Program, which formerly served 130,000 low-income women by funding clinics that provided preventative care. (BUST blogged about this issue before the cut was made.) This care included cancer screenings and contraception--some of the affected clinics were Planned Parenthood-affiliated, but none of the federal money contributed to abortions. Texas Governor Rick Perry decided that no government funds should be allowed to go to Planned Parenthood anyway, and tried to have them excluded from the funding. But Medicaid...
We were stoked to find out a few days ago that Office writer/actress/producer/director (seriously, the girl does everything) and BUST cover cutie Mindy Kaling was getting her own sitcom on Fox for next season.

A recent survey looked into how young women and men feel about condom use, and not surprisingly, a quarter think it's a "hassle." Even though we all know how important safe sex is, sometimes we need reminders, so let's all remember the myriad consequences for having unprotected sex. Mull them over for a bit. If that's not evocative enough, just imagine me bouncing around in your bedroom, yelling the slogan I used to see on bus stops in San Francisco: "2-4-6-8, use a condom or...
Ani DiFranco, (amazing and gutsy feminist folk singer), wants her fans to help her make a video for her song Mariachi, from her new album Which Side Are You On? That means you! Go on, make a video! It can be anything you want. Just have fun with it. (Remember what Ani told us: “I need back up! I need company! I need to be inspired!”) Then send in your submission, and the footage will be put together to make an “official” video. Also, when...
