  In theaters now is The Wolfpack, an extraordinary new documentary by Crystal Moselle. Winner of the 2015 Grand Jury Documentary prize at Sundance this past January, this film—produced and edited by women, and with a mostly-female crew—tells the story of the six young Angulo brothers, who were raised in New York City with little to no contact with the outside world. Paranoid the “drugs and crime” of the city would harm them, the boys’ father kept the door to their Lower East Side housing project apartment...
We will assume you’ve finished binge-watching season three of Orange Is The New Black by now (I haven’t, so no spoilers or I’ll cry) so you must be as madly in love with Ruby Rose as we are here at BUST. In an awesome interview with Elle, Ruby Rose discusses gender fluidity and the freedom that comes with working on such a positive, female-driven TV show. “People are talking about gender fluidity more and more now,” she says, “because once someone opens a door to something...
Model Lauren Wasser is suing Kotex after losing her leg to TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome).

Senior citizens definitely aren’t the first people you would think would be making street art. Rodrigues told The Creators Project, “I think that the seniors...

As of yesterday, the goal of putting a woman on paper money has become a reality—in 2020, a woman will finally appear on the $10 bill.  The U.S. Treasury Department planned a fabulous woman’s $10 debut as a celebration of the centennial anniversary of women’s suffrage.
