Happy Coretta Scott King’s birthday! The activist and Civil Rights leader was born on April 27, 1927 and died in 2006. Although many people know Coretta mainly as Martin Luther King Jr.’s wife, in reality, she was so much more. Besides being a Civil Rights leader in her own right, she was also active in the feminist, LGBT and anti-apartheid movements and was a lifelong advocate for human rights. Here are 7 things you didn’t know about Coretta: Dr Martin Luther King Jr and Coretta Scott King, 1964. 1. Her Civil Rights activism went far beyond her role as Martin Luther King Jr.
When I was a kid, I loved The Wizard of Oz. Despite the fact that I found the flying monkeys and the Wicked Witch of the West utterly horrifying, I watched the movie over and over every chance I got. It was my first experience with loving the feeling of being scared, which now manifests itself in my love of the horror genre. It felt exhilarating to watch something with the underlying tone of terror, which came from Dorothy's feeling of being lost and alone. The set itself reflected the hopeless fear of her journey.
An “educational” film from 1937, “How to Undress in Front of Your Husband” begins with a warning to women that men could be watching us at any time. The male gaze — er, I mean, candid cameraman — snoops on two women while they are undressing alone in their bedroom, as the narrator explains:“In the old days the boudoir was considered a sanctuary where a lady could retire, if she wished to, in privacy. But in this age of snooping reporters and candid cameramen, nothing is sacred.” That’s right, ladies! The male gaze follows you everywhere.

Photo by Danielle St. Laurent You may not know Patricia Field’s name, but it’s impossible not to have seen her work. As the costume designer for Sex and the City, the most fashion-forward show of the late ’90s and early aughts, she was responsible for Carrie’s tutu in the title sequence and that classic nameplate necklace.
On Monday, Paul Nungesser, the alleged rapist of Columbia University graduate Emma Sulkowicz, filed a suit against the university for gender-based harassment. You most certainly remember the story of her carrying her mattress around campus and through her commencement in order to protest her rapist being found not responsible by Columbia. Nungesser has now filed a new 100-page complaint against the school.He originally argued that Columbia allowing Sulkowicz’s “Carry That Weight” art project and other protests were in violation of Title IX rights.
Today is the day we have all been waiting for, the day when all of our dreams come true. Sweetie darling, it’s the release of the Absolutely Fabulous trailer!In case you’ve been living under a rock (or in the US), Absolutely Fabulous is one of the BBC’s most beloved sitcoms. It has had a rocky life of on-air off-air since 1992, but the people have spoken and a feature film is what they desire! The film follows middle aged, but desperately hip PR agent Edina Monsoon and her best friend/enabler Patsy Stone as they attempt to sign Britain’s greatest treasure, Kate Moss.

It’s well-known that Hollywood doesn’t like seeing women of a certain age onscreen — and, far too often, “a certain age” means 35. In 2015, a study found that just 30% of the already limited number of women shown onscreen are over 40, compared to 53% of men.Director Lorene Scafaria knows just how hard it is to get movies about older women made. She directed the new indie dramedy The Meddler, starring Susan Sarandon as a recent widow who finds herself meddling in the lives of her daughter (Rose Byrne), her daughter’s friends, Apple store employees...
