What do we associate with roller skates? Disco, afros, fast food, maybe Patrick Swayze in Skatetown USA. We definitely don’t think of the Victorian Age, which calls to mind matronly tight-laced women and extreme poverty as opposed to shredding it up at the local skating rink. But say you were a Victorian middle or upper class youth, and your every romantic endeavor was carefully watched by your elders... Wouldn’t you strap wheels to your feet in order to escape? It turns out skates, like overbearing parents, have played...

When celebrated artist Frida Kahlo died in 1954, her husband Diego Rivera locked her clothing in a room that he ordered not be opened until 15 years after his death. True to Rivera's wishes, photographer Isiuchi Miyako only gained access to Kahlo's belongings in 2004, and took these amazing pictures.  There's something especially powerful about this look at Kahlo's most intimate possessions: It could be the fact that it reminds us the artist was a human, not just a legend. Or maybe it's just that the...

This past week Congress passed a “doc-fix” bill providing $200 billion in annual funding for Medicare and healthcare programs. We’re stoked to see that this bill passed with overwhelming approval ( 92-8), and it seems like this symbolizes huge progress in the fight for affordable and ethical health care. But hold on, don’t bring out your noisemakers and confetti yet, there’s a catch, and it’s a major problem. The bill does provide more funding to Medicare and incentivises doctors to provide affordable health care without the...

Tinder just got a little more exciting, and it’s not because suddenly there are more eligible beaus at your fingertips. The organization Women In Distress—that raises awareness and gives women resources for domestic violence related issues—just joined Tinder. And what does this mean for you? Well, if you live in an area that has notable domestic violence statistics, you may have already seen one of these ads. They are calling this project "Tinder-Beater” and the way it works is both tricky and totally necessary. Here’s how...

As we all know, the current state of reproductive rights in our country is far from ideal. (That is, of course, if you’re into having some sort of control over when you bring a human life into this world.) But last week we hit a new low: An all-male committee of Republicans voted to end Colorado’s pregnancy prevention program, which is the most successful of its kind in the nation. So successful, in fact, that the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association recognized it...
