After pads and tampons were confiscated last week during an anti-abortion law hearing, I had enough sense to believe people were going to go bat-shit crazy over this latest Texas travesty. They did. But after MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry donned a pair of tampon earrings this weekend to prove a point, it’s no wonder we’re still sitting here, fighting the same damn fight over our own bodies. “What a nasty skank.” “The Left are ...

  We’re counting down the days until BUST's 20th Anniversary Extravaganza (8! Just 8!) and we know the wait is killing you. Taking a peak at our heaping list of performers and guests.

Remember when baby stilettos were a thing? Remember how they never really caught on? Yeah, let’s hope this trend meets the same end. Baby Bangs, the company responsible for the newest line of toddler toupees, believes “in the beauty of childhood.” So they invented patent pending headband accessories that are making waves across, gee, I don’t know, sandboxes? I guess? The results are pretty weird. Now, this would be all fine and dandy and ... Read More
Wearing a pink shawl that once belonged to slain Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto, education activist Malala Yousafzai celebrated her 16th birthday today by delivering a brilliant speech to the United Nations Youth Assembly. The UN has officially declared today Malala Day. “The terrorists thought that they would change our aims and stop our ambitions but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and ... Read More
I love Ellen Page. Anyone in their right mind loves Ellen Page. I mean, just take a gander at this woman’s film resume: Hard Candy, Juno, Inception—Page kicks patriarchy’s butt in every one of her films, and she does it so effortlessly. The vengeful pedophile hunter out for the kill in Hard Candy? Easy. The relentless superhero wannabe in Super? Hell yeah. Kitty Pryde in X-Men: The Last Stand AND the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past? Need I ... Read More
It’s like my entire feminist life has led up to this one, darling moment. In 2012, Stanford University student Debra Sterling founded GoldieBlox, Inc.—a startup with one awesome mission. As an engineer, Sterling wanted to give girls a toy that would stir up their interest in story-oriented building, a luxury boys are given with Legos. In a world where girls start losing interest in science as young as age 8, Sterling’s big idea seemed to be the ... Read More
I try and think back on when the word “fat” and its negative social stigma first registered. Was it in fifth grade when all of the kids started to break up into cliques? Was it when a family member used it to describe a passerby, friend, or loved one? I look back and begin to realize that the word “fat” never really had an exact beginning for me or probably for anyone else. Ingrained into our lives, words like “fat” or ... Read More

  Filibustering? Protesting? How about turning the tables on men's reproductive rights to get your point across? In the endless parade of this year's badass women leaders taking a stand, let's talk about the bill that Ohio Senator Nina Turner (D) introduced this spring. SB 307 would essentially regulate men’s reproductive health in a more invasive way than ever before. The Cleveland Democrat compared the measure to men legislating “a woman’s ... Read More
It’s a major victory for same-sex marriage supporters, believers in equality, and pretty much everyone in the human race. In a 5-4, ruling, the Supreme Court deemed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, as it was a “deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment.” Here’s what you need to know about what went down: By striking down DOMA, the Supreme Court has declared that legally ...
