This week, in totally-normal-no-it’s-ok-that-this-election-is-a-giant-shitstorm news, a topless effigy of Hillary Clinton has been hung on a crane parked off of Interstate 5 in Sutherlin, Oregon. The effigy was made out of a black, rubber wetsuit dressed up in a pink bra and blazer, as well as a blonde wig. It was hung by a noose, which was attached to the crane — an effective image, if one lacking in subtlety.

It’s always been challenging for women to excel, but it’s particularly difficult to be a Superwoman in the United States in 2016. Some Americans are being merciless about keeping a lady from leading the country. What are they afraid of? Change? There have been women leaders all around the world, but for the United States, which continues to hold onto the traditional roles, a woman in the White House would mean a change in the social fabric. Despite the backlash, Hillary Clinton still rises above it all.
Mara Wilson is used to people recognizing her — in fact, in college, she had a one-woman show called "Weren't You That Girl?" As a child, she starred in classic ‘90s movies including Mrs. Doubtfire, Miracle on 34th Street, and, possibly best known of all, Matilda. But as a young teen, Mara quit acting — and went on with her life, attending boarding school, then NYU, then entering the world of professional writing and storytelling. Now 29, Mara is taking control of her story with her engaging new book, Where Am I Now? True Stories Of Girlhood And Accidental Fame.

The internet lost its shit yesterday over a (thankfully) fake tweet from film parody Unreel News. People freaked out so much that a petition made its way around the internet and has nearly reached its target goal of 90,000 signatures. But before we dive into why all of this panic matters, let’s start with some context. Last year, Disney told The Hollywood Reporter that a live-action version of Mulan was in the works with a script written by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek.
Ok, so this is definitely the cutest thing we’ve ever seen. Grammy-nominated Colombian electro-cumbia band Bomba Estéreo recently released the music video for their song “Soy Yo,” and in less than a week it's already amassed 2 million views thanks to their amazing star, eleven-year-old Sarai Isaura Gonzalez, a New Jersey native who was cast for her self-assurance and energy. With moves inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Gonzalez dances her way around her neighborhood with such pluck and determination.
Today, BUST celebrates the legendary and sensational Yma Sumac, a Peruvian Singer who is best known for her "exotic" persona and a voice that impressively reached across four octaves. The “Peruvian songbird” entered the world on this day back in 1922. She was born Zoila Augusta Emperatriz Chavarri del Castillo in Peru, a proclaimed descendant of the Inca Tribe. She burst onto the scene in the 1950's, dressed in tons of gold and silver jewelry. Her style was heavily influenced by traditional Incan style combined with Hollywood glamour.
Samantha Bee is back...and just in time to weigh in on Hillary Clinton's bumpy election weekend. Bee hilariously cuts into every recent election mishap in her new episode of Full Frontal. Her responses provide the much-needed relief from this trainwreck of an election. “Let’s get right to the big news, Hillary Clinton has passed away,” Bee jokes. “She says she’s not dead but as we know she is a liar." Surely, there is no way a weak and decrepit women could ever run a nation! Her lying about her death is just another red mark against her failing track record.
