Everything is awesome when there are LEGO Supreme Court Justice ladies around! Maia Weinstock has created a set of customized LEGO figurines featuring the four women who have served on the Supreme Court Bench: Sandra Day O’Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan. Also included is a U.S. Supreme Court replica and SCOTUS library area. The aim behind Weinstock’s project is to inspire young women and girls to aspire towards joining or following these women on the bench. With so much opposition against progressive legislation...
On March 9, 2015, the 59th session of the Commission of the Status of Women began at the United Nation Headquarters in New York, and will last until the 20th of this month.

Looking "normal" is treated more and more like a deformity than simply being a human being (cellulite, stretch marks and acne, oh my!) and nobody can express how ridiculous this is better than the fierce and funny Amy Schumer.  In five minutes she delivers...
A Belgian advertisement for the upcoming 2015 E3 Harelbeke cycling competition released an image of a male biker reaching up to grab a woman’s exposed behind. The tagline: “Who squeezes them in Harelbeke?” Not only is this ad disgusting, but it says zero about the actual sport and alienates any female cyclists who might want to participate as equals. Sigh. The design was inspired by previous winner Solvak Peter Sagan, who pinched a woman’s behind at the Tour de Flanders in 2013; an off-putting and clear display...
