That’s why it was so depressing to learn that its trademark cartoons are not “liberal” at all in their representation of women and especially of people of color. In a study conducted by the Proceedings of the Natural Institute of Science (which has some satirical studies but also some serious ones, too), the authors determined that, out of 1810 characters published in the...
We’ve already established that Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the single most badass female characters in film. She’s physically-disabled, an incredible fighter, yet full of compassion and emotion. She wants to free the “The Wives” and get redemption. The only thing Furiosa was missing was a theme song.

When Tracy, a sad college freshman in New York City, suddenly befriends her brand-new older stepsister Brooke, life takes a fast—and exciting!—turn. In Mistress America, which is set to arrive in select theaters on August 14, comedy goddess Greta Gerwig and up-and-comer Lola Kirke (little sister of Girls’s Jemima Kirke) get to know themselves while getting to know one another on a journey to remember. It's a powerful portrait of female relationships and self-discovery, Noah Baumbach-style. And no, it is not a sequel to Frances...
