Emma Watson has warmed our hearts and empowered our vaginas once again!   Some of you may recall the speech she delivered at the UN earlier in 2014. It was there that she announced her campaign HeforShe, a "solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity.” Watson’s efforts have been doing just that: She was joined by UN leader Ban Ki-Moon who said, “HeForShe has signed up fathers who want to raise empowered daughters; leaders who...
    Yesterday, House GOP members passed abortion legislation banning federal funding for abortions.

We all know the story of Big and Little Edie who, during the 1970’s, lived (whimsically) among the rotting conditions of Grey Gardens—the lack of clean,...
So many of our favorite shows in the last couple years have been released through Netflix (here's looking at you House of Cards and Orange is the New Black). But there's a new one on its way that we're literally squealing about  like happy newborn piglets. Tina Fey paired up with the distributing channel to make Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a show about a doomsday cult survivor—played by BUST fave Ellie Kemper—who begins life completely anew in NYC after being rescued from an Indiana apocalypse bunker.
