  “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.
How long has it been since you picked up a teen magazine? For most of us, it’s probably been years — not least because most of the teen mags of yore have long since folded (RIP YM, Teen People, CosmoGirl and, of course, Sassy). You might want to consider picking up a teen magazine again, because Teen Vogue’s February issue has a major feminist theme — and we’re impressed.
When someone uses the term DIY, what usually comes to mind are handmade crafts, ambitious cooking endeavors, or creative home improvement projects. But for Limor Fried, the 36-year-old owner of Adafruit Industries, DIY is a way to empower people of all ages to take control of their personal technology through educational make-your-own electronics kits. Adafruit sells everything from LED sequins to DIY watch and robot sets. Her most popular, and perhaps least intimidating product, however, is the “MintyBoost Kit,” a build-your-own mobile-device charger the size of an Altoids tin.
  Vivienne Westwood designed some nice penis necklaces for you to wear, if you want. Sport one on your first day at your new job, a wedding where you don't really know anyone, or while going through airport security. There is no wrong time to wear a penis necklace. The necklaced was debuted in Vivienne Westwood's menswear show on January 19 in Milan. You can get these pecker pendants in silver and gold. If you want BUST's official style advice, the penis necklace is best worn with a clitoris ring.
  Last Friday marked the 43rd anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case Roe V. Wade that decided women have a right to privacy and to make their own reproductive health choices. Now, over four decades later, Planned Parenthood has been held under an accusatory microscope, facing charges of illegally selling human body parts.
If anyone should ever need another reason to love Cher, just wait until this next sentence. In the wake of the atrocious water crisis in Flint, Michigan, Cher has been one of the biggest voices relentlessly trying to bring attention to the problem. Her colorful tweets have taken a backseat in order to call out the government of Flint and express support to the residents, written in all caps lock and emojis so you know she means business.
Postpartum depression is not as visible as it should be. According to the American Psychological Association, up to 1 in 7 women experience postpartum depression, yet we don't talk about it. In fact, a mere 15% of women with postpartum depression seek professional treatment. Recently, several celebrities have spoken honestly about their struggles with it, starting a much-needed conversation. Hayden Panettiere, who has been vocal about the issue before, talked about beating postpartum at the Critics' Choice Awards.
  Have you watched The Great British Bake Off yet? If not, you’re missing out. The baking competition reality series debuted in 2010 and has become a MAJOR hit in the UK — the 2015 finale drew over 13 million viewers, making it the most-watched TV series of the year. That’s right. Making custard can be INTENSE. The Great British Bake Off recently crossed the pond and began airing on PBS as The Great British Baking Show. It’s currently streaming on Netflix if you’re in need of a marathon — and trust me, you are.
