It's a self defense video geared toward women, especially those of us (like myself) with no martial arts training or even the slightest idea of how to defend themself. It's called 'Just Yell Fire,' as apparently when you...

Sometimes, it's good to return to your roots.I spent an enlightening day perusing the Barnard College Zine Library, curated by research librarian, activist and zinester Jenna Freedman (with the help of awesome zine intern Melissa). I spent hours perusing the collection of "personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, third wave feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, and other topics," reading titles I'd heard so much about in my youth: Girlswirl, I'm So Fucking Beautiful, The Renegade's Handbook to Love...
