So, Ivanka Trump came out and claimed that her father, Donald Trump, is a feminist. First of all, no. Just stop right there. The man that has said things such as, “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass,” from an Esquire interview in 1991, and, “My favorite part [of Pulp Fiction] is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up. Tell that bitch to be cool. Say: ‘Bitch be cool.
Women's Peacekeeping Teams in South Sudan courtesy of Nonviolent Peaceforce Give Peace a ChanceThe nation of South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in 2011, and has been entrenched in civil war since 2013. During this period of unrest, gender-based violence has exploded in the region, with issues like rape, domestic violence, girls being kept from school, and boys being recruited into armed groups tearing communities apart. In response to these concerns, a nonprofit organization called Nonviolent Peaceforce (nonviolentpeaceforce.
On How to Get Away With Murder, it's revealed that Michaela has never had an orgasm I’ve never had an orgasm. I’ve also never had intercourse. I’ve had men use their fingers on my clit, but I always get to a point where it’s too much and sometimes painful. When I try to use a vibrator, it’s the same result. And using my own fingers does nothing. Part of the problem is that stimulating my clit doesn’t feel good. It feels extremely intense, but not pleasurable. I take Paxil, and I know that has sexual side effects.
It’s a fairly constant theme in conversations with other mothers I meet. The kind of conversations that make anyone who chose to take a step back from work squirm a little. What do you do…? And often the Sheryl Sandberg perspective begins to surface…how important it is for women to Lean In, despite the many challenges working mothers face. Six years ago, I left a great job at a highly-regarded institution.
Carra Sykes is a Houston-based designer and photographer, who, in November 2012, started a photo series with her mother. The series, entitled "mother + daughter," showcases the similarities between the two women. "This is a continuing photo series with my mom and me," Carra writes on her website. "It is inspired by my uncle always joking with my mom and asking her if she is wearing my clothes." In the photos, Carra and her mother, Marti, wear the same clothes and strike the same pose in the same spot. We love the quirkiness of the project and hope to see more soon.
You might be stoked to learn that 2 Broke Girls will return for season 6—but I had always felt like the CBS show was a little problematic, what with all the jokes Kat Dennings’ Max makes about her childhood abuse and her boss’ sexuality. They really turned me off, then, when I saw a re-run of season 1’s episode 8, “And Hoarder Culture.” When the girls got a side gig cleaning houses, they are sent to tidy up for a hoarder and the tasteless jokes ensue. “They should charge admission for this!” Max says upon entering the apartment.

It’s been nearly two weeks since Netflix’s hit comedy-drama series Orange is the New Black returned for its highly-anticipated fourth season; and, unless you live under a rock, you’ve most likely heard by now that this season is unprecedentedly wild, action-packed, and as emotionally-draining as television can be. As a huge fan of OITNB, I’m proud to say that I didn’t totally veg out and watch all 13 episodes in one exhaustingly long binge session (for those of you who did — no shame — it happens to the best of us).
  At just 11 years old, I was already a Missy Elliott fan. I started taking tap and tumbling classes at 4 years old, and by the 6th grade, began taking hip-hop. When I was dancing to a radio edit of Nelly’s “Shake Ya Tailfeather” in a sequin belly shirt and matching pants at a recital, I imagined myself as Alyson Stoner—the little white girl dancing alongside Missy Elliott in the video for “Work It.” How cool was she?, I thought. Not “pretty” or “sexy”—just there, in a jumpsuit, dancing like a person full of life and contentment.
llustration by Sam Woolley  Even in the face of a life-threatening virus outbreak, the Senate cannot take their heads out of their calamine-covered asses and agree to work together. Earlier this week, the senate Democrats blocked a federal spending bill that would have provided "1.1 billion to fight the mosquito-borne Zika virus.
