If you needed another reason to love Connie Britton, we've got one: she's judging a feminist video contest. Pro-woman media compay SheKnowsMedia  and the Ms. Foundation will be holding #TheFWord Video Contest as a part of the #TheFWord: Feminism is Not a Dirty Word campaign, which launched in fall 2015. Britton championed the campaign when it was announced, and she's doubling down on her involvement by judging the contest. If you're interested in enterting, the videos should be two to three minutes long and describe your personal take on what it means to be a feminist.
So, I know what you’re going to say: you’re a sore loser.  You knew the rules when you signed up, and you have no right to complain about them.  So maybe you’re right.  But sometimes, as much as we may try to tailor our expectations to fit the stupidity of the system, our frustration does not always decrease in just proportion. My band The Very Rich Hours and I recently took part in Emergenza, an international battle of the bands type festival for unsigned acts. We made it to round two of the Paris leg.

  Trembling with caffeine jitters from the earl grey you downed this morning? Feeling a bit tense? Need a social ice-breaker? We rummaged through The Tea Book: All Things Tea to excavate what you really want (hint: the booze), so you don’t have to. Nevermind that the book is chock full of tea-infused dishes, histories of various teas, their associated properties, and guides for recreating traditional tea rituals, we found the booze, y’all.
For so many of us, middle school is a vague, blurry memory of school dances and angsty slamming of doors. If you are a millennial, this was a time when Ihe internet was still a mysterious place your parents were kind of afraid of. AIM was the only form of texting that existed and MySpace ran your entire social life. All the drama happened in-person or on sneaky three-way calls. The details of your sordid social life are probably cloudy or forgotten altogether, and for many of us, that is how we prefer it.
A few months ago, I poured myself a glass of red wine, turned on Shakira, and danced around my kitchen while I made a pot of chili and ordered a wedding dress online. I was beating the system. I’d seen the wedding shows: the bridesmaids holding sparkly numbers to rate their selections, I’d seen the tulle and the lace and the tears. It was not for me. Online I’d found a wedding dress I loved, and it could just be sent to my house, no three mirrors and a pedestal, no giant electrical-clip looking contraptions holding things together.
11-year-old Marley Dias was sick of only reading books about "white boys and dogs" in school and wanted to read about protagonists who looked like her, so she started a book drive called #1000BlackGirlBooks. Dias, who lives in New Jersey, has an impressive history of social action that includes receiving a Disney Friends for Change grant and serving food to orphans in Ghana. Dias talked to PhillyVoice, explaining how a conversation with her mom was the spark for this idea.
  “As we convene this morning, you look around the chamber, the presiding officer is female. All of our parliamentarians are female. Our floor managers are female. All of our pages are female,” remarked Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R), noticing something unusual about the Capitol Tuesday morning. With Leslie Knope-level dedication to the issues, the Senate convened for a short session on Tuesday, despite campus being closed due to 29 inches of snowfall from the previous weekend.

Dear Sarah,I understand that it must be deeply shameful to have a son who has been arrested for domestic assault. Notice that I point out you’re probably ashamed that your son was “arrested” for domestic assault, but not that you’re probably ashamed that your son committed domestic assault? That’s because your decision to pin the blame for your son’s actions on Barack Obama says it all. You’re not interested in actually getting help for your son and encouraging him to change. You’re not interested in getting help for veterans who suffer from PTSD.
