Saudi women, campaigning for their right to drive, have asked for Hillary Clinton to lend her voice to the cause. They are unhappy with her response, however Princess Ameerah has spoken in public supporting the cause, electing to appear on American television. Saudi Women For Driving, a collation comprised of leading Saudi women’s rights activists, academics and bloggers, sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking for her public support.

Last year, Mooncup ran a poster campaign in London, inviting women to submit nicknames for their ladybits. Now they have what I'm convinced is Jessica Rabbit singing 'em out for you. This seems like a pretty blatant "viral ad campaign" attempt. They might as well have choreographed a flash mob! Yawn. This ad campaign does make me realize what a taboo of a word "vagina" is, and what cutesy nicknames ladies get for their private parts.

Greetings from the road. I'm writing this post in the car on our way to Jacksonville, Florida. The sun is shining, it's hot, and tour rules. So far, the Assembly of Light Women's Choir and The Body have dominated audiences in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Charlotte.     Let's rewind a bit so I can show you some pictures.    Landscape gardener/Soprano Anna Mulligan relaxes at White Electric before our departure.    Tour Version of What's Inside the Bag: contents of Maralie Armstrong's bag. Choir huddle before leaving Providence.

On Monday the Supreme Court threw out a case against Walmart that sought backpay to compensate an upwards of a million female employees who claim they were discriminated against in pay and promotion decisions.  Had the case gone through, it would have cost Walmart billions of dollars.

Any cat owner knows that our dear felines love to bring their owners delightful surprises, like dead rodents and birds, or even the occasional slimy sock. But San Mateo, California has a well-known thief that earns the apt title of a ‘cat burglar.’ Dusty, a beautiful, stealth Siamese owned by the Chu family has stolen over 600 things from neighbors over the years, by sneaking out each night and bringing as many as eleven items home before dawn. Adorable neighbor, 5-year-old Ethan McLellan says, “She always steals stuff…she took my mom’s swimming clothes.

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich is credited with the famous quote, “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” which is a phrase that has since become a slogan of just about everyone and their grandma. (There’s even a coffee mug floating around the BUST office with the quote.) But at 92nd Street Y’s recent talk on Women in Politics moderator Alison Stewart, host of PBS’s Need to Know, asked authors Nora Ephron and Rebecca Traister how this quote relates to women in politics historically and today.

Are you ready to get blipped and bleeped until your jeans tight-roll themselves? Because Junior Boys' fourth album, It’s All True, (Domino) will probably make you think you’re live on Dance TV. The Canadian duo blends spaced out synths with a bevy of ’80s-inspired melodies and sensitive vocals. Junior Boys singer Jeremy Greenspan nails some lovely high notes on the pouty tune “Banana Ripple,” and I swear I heard the song “A Truly Happy Ending” years ago in the movie Mannequin.

  For a band with a radical name, Toronto’s sprawling hardcore collective Fucked Up sure do make one hell of an old-fashioned racket. There was once this thing called an “album,” and a subgenre of this archaic method of presentation was the monolithic “rock opera.

  Evelyn Evelyn, AKA Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley, recently released an animated music video to their track "Sandy Fishnets." The dark, haunting tune tells the story of the encounter between the conjoined twins, Evelyn and Evelyn, and tragic character Sandy Fishnets. The beautiful, flickering animation - which also includes amazing light painting - is a perfect companion to the song.
