D.C. requested, after the usual back-and-forth, that Iris meet him at a local brewery on a Tuesday night. Here is what unfolded. - 6:55 pm - Iris arrives at the brewery, which is packed with other young and hip and dreamy people, looks like someone’s living room, and — as is now required of all establishments by law...

For our book review sidebar in our June/July 2017 issue, we're spotlighting three recentlyp ublished brief books by big-time writers. from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's 80-page tretise on feminism and motherhood, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestions, to novelist Tracy Chevalier's 208-page reimagining of a Shakespeare classic, you should be able to read these books in a single afternoon — but we won't blame you if...

You’d think by now Trump would’ve learned what is and isn’t appropriate to say. He’s made it clear that he doesn’t know how to treat women properly (that whole "grab ‘em by the pussy" thing I’ve been trying to unhear), but when addressing a politician’s wife, he should know better than to hit on her.

   A teenage girl in Nepal, Tulasi Shahi, died after being bitten by a snake, twice in her head and once on her leg, while she was banished to a cowshed during a menstruation ritual, writes the New York Times. Shahi, 18, was taking part in Chhaupadi - which translates to “untouchable being”- still a common practice in rural areas, though banned in 2005, in which women, believed to be unclean during menstruation, are sequestered for the duration for their periods. Chhaupadi is not just relegated...
