“the thing about writing is / i can’t tell if it’s healing / or destroying me,” Rupi Kaur writes in her debut book of poetry, Milk and Honey. It’s a complete poem in its own - one of many micro-poems in the book, shorter than tweets but packed with power. “the rape will / tear you /  in half / but it / will not / end you” “i am undoing you / from my skin” “the way they / leave / tells you / everything” Kaur, who lives...

As a feminist from the South, Jack Off Jill will always occupy a special corner of my heart. Technically, the band broke-up fifteen years ago, a rather tumultuous ordeal at the time. So imagine my surprise when I was handed a slim, pink copy of After Grrrl last week – the first issue of Jack Off Jill’s rebooted fan zine, last seen circa 2002.  Back in April, a certain reputable feminist site (*cough* okay, it was Bust.com, shout out to us!) announced a one-night-only Jack Off Jill...

Picturesque shots of a remote town that is, you guessed it, by the sea   Throughout the film, one of the highlights has to be the sheer beauty of the setting.

Having a vagina in tow on this journey called life can mean that you pay quite a bit more for day-to-day living, no matter the country you live in. With tampon taxes and pay gaps making national news, Buddy Loans, a British loan company, added up just how much more money it costs to be a vagina owner. Unsurprisingly, many of the things that cost women in the U.K. extra transfer pretty indiscriminately to the women in the States. Let’s do the math: 1. By default women earn less...

Suicide is historically burdened with the tenacious stigma of being “taboo”—a label that once meant the conversation was not suitable for mixed company (or any company) and should be quarantined to the likes of medical professionals. As talking openly has become inextricable from progress, this dated label has gone the way of matrimonial twin beds. No conversation is out-of-bounds anymore. Now when we say “taboo,” we mean to point out that our persistent reluctance has become a detrimental hindrance to growth. To be fair, suicide is...
