A federal judge has blocked key parts of a Texas abortion law that would require doctors to provide a sonogram to pregnant women before they go through with the procedure. As written, the law would require women seeking an abortion in Texas to view a picture of the embryo or fetus and hear a description of its development before having the procedure. It was to take effect on September 1.     U.S.

It's gotten better, but think back to your high school history classes and ask yourself if more women or men were mentioned in the textbook. Traditionally history classes have left out many of the numerous women who have also impacted the world. Here's an interesting article from the Online Colleges blog we'd like to share, which discusses 15 of the first female professors.

Apparently, zebra finches (above) understand that it's not about the coloring or the shape of a potential mate's tail feather, but how one shakes it.  A research conducted by a team from University of Exeter, Carleton University, Royal Veterinary College, and University of London has found that adventurous female zebra finches choose mates with similar personalities, regardless of the birds' size or physical features. This is the first study to show that the non-sexual behavior or personalities of both mates influences partner choice in non-humans.

  After Lisa’s "Awesome Lady Drummer Roundup," there was so much positive feedback, enthusiasm, and an overwhelming amount of suggestions, it was undeniable that a second lady drummer roundup was called for.  As a drummer myself, I am honored to share with you the musician babes whom I worship and who inspire me. We present to you the following roundup of mainly current and underground bands in hopes of shedding a little bit of light on these kick-ass bands whose drummers happen to be female.

When you think of "cat fashion," you might think of cats in costumes or at least that's what google is giving me, but when I think "cat fashion," I think of these fantastically adorable Charlotte Olympia shoes. They are so ridiculously cute that I pulled a  Rachel Zoe when I saw them and muttered something along the lines of, "ohmygosh, I die."  I found the red wedge version and oh look, it's on sale for only (ONLY?!) $895 at Bergdorf Goodman! Ok, so these beauties are a little (a lot) out of my price range, but at least they're super cute to look at.

I'm used to taking fashion cues from style icons of long ago, but Alexa Chung is one of the few modern gals whose style I love through and through. She's got an effortless and playful ease to her look that many girls, including myself, definitely covet. Her last collection for Madewell did extremely well and I'm still bummed out I never got my hands on this dress, but thankfully her new collection for Madewell is just as adorable and soon set to be sold online and in stores starting September 22nd.

New York is inundated with music festivals, but there's nothing quite like the Tinderbox Music Festival -- an all-female showcase -- which returns to NY on Saturday, September 10th for its second year!BUST Magazine is proud to sponsor Tinderbox, which not only features a diverse lineup of established and emerging female artists, but also donates 100% of their net proceeds to Girls Write Now and the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls. Both organizations provide guidance and opportunities to help empower the next generation of female artists.

We have all read and loved her posts here on the BUST blog, as well as her keen eye for fashionable detail. We have probably even spent more than what is considered a healthy amount of time on her fashion blog, the Rebel Waltz, as she captures street styles from places like New York City, Austin, and San Francisco. But, we aren't the only ones who are taking notice. Former BUST intern Kristina Uriegas-Reyes is attracting some outside attention these days and, of course, we have to let you all know (so you can stalk her more than you already do).

  First of all, I hope everyone stayed safe this weekend throughout the storm!  I also hope that you were surrounded by good food and company.  Speaking of food, recently I’ve changed my diet and decided to gradually ease into vegetarianism.  It’s really much easier than I anticipated it’d be!  For the past two weeks I’ve focused on eating more fruits and veggies daily, as well as cutting out the flesh foods.  Oh gosh, I’ve started reading more vegetarian advice blogs and noticed how everyone calls them “flesh foods.
