Witches are real and they do sail across the night sky on broomsticks. Well, more like plywood and canvas airplanes. This is what the Nazis thought of the “Night Witches,” a group of young Russian women volunteering themselves to fight (and fly) for their country. They flew under the moonlight, their only tools being maps and compasses—no parachutes, radios, or radars. They completed 30,000 missions over 4 years and dropped about 23,000 tons of bombs. If any Nazi captured a “witch” they received an Iron...

In a recent article, the Wall Street Journal talked about the advances of new cleaning products and how they've changed to work even faster than ever, blah, blah, blah. More importantly though, WSJ decided to accompany the text of the piece with drawings of women, and only women, using these housekeeping items. Because as we all know, men can't complete such mundane tasks! Those are to be left to us helpless females. Men and women are equal and all, but who could bother a dude...

Oh my grash, gals, I must be stuck in the dark ages. Sometimes I forget that they make an app for everything these days, but it never occurred to me that there are apps that would track your period. BUT THERE ARE. THERE TOTALLY ARE.  Truth be told, I'm on the pill, which is supposed to (keyword being "supposed") make it so I know exactly when I'll get it. And even when I wasn't on the pill, I was incredibly sloppy at tracking my period on...

The video is one of the most awful things I’ve seen recently in terms of outright objectification of women, so please brace yourself. And also, maybe be kind to yourself and set up your Internet queue with some cuteness to feel better afterwards – check out pictures of this tiny, hurt kitten...

In this video, UNICEF asked several women from many different backgrounds the same question: What's it like to be a girl or a woman today? From different countries all over the world, the interviewees are both young and old, but all bring a profound perspective to the burning issue. Some are more optimistic than others, but mostly arrived at a similar conclusion. (While a USA resident happily declares, "I have the same opportunities as a man," a middle-aged woman from the Democratic Republic of Congo...
