Hi. My name is Brad. You may not have heard of me before, but don’t worry, I’m rich. As a successful venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, I’ve helped launch some of the most innovative startups in the tech industry. The creme brûlée cruster? Yeah, that was me. Listen, I’m changing lives. Obviously I’m a smart guy, but one thing I can’t for the life of me understand is: why do all these women keep accusing me of sexual harassment? Sure, I slept around in college, who didn’t? And...
While maintaining the air of mystery she’s created for herself, Leikeli47 released a music video to accompany her recently-released song "Miss Me." In the video she keeps her face covered and works in a bodega where all of the products bear her name or face. She first entered our radar when her song “F**k the Summer Up,” which Jay-Z co-signed, was included in his playlist on Tidal and he named the playlist after her song. Leikeli47 has managed to keep her full name, age, and...

It’s produced by a black executive producer,...

The scandalous tale of Lady Godiva’s ride has been in circulation for nearly ten centuries. In that time, it has provided inspiration for innumerable poets, painters, and sculptors. Inevitably, Lady Godiva is depicted as naked on horseback, covered only by her long hair, as she rides through the town of Coventry. But did such a ride ever take place? According to some sources, it did. The legend was first recorded in Roger of Wendover’s 13th century Flores Historiarum (Flowers of History). Since then, it has been...
Tired of the same ole, same ole? So is The Light Leaks. Founded by Kim Hoyos, The Light Leaks are the new voices in the film industry — a community of writers, thinkers, creators, and unheard voices disrupting the mundane and often exclusionary film industry by creating a space to spotlight, educate, and provide support for female identifying and non-binary filmmakers. “Light leaks are usually seen as bright, beautiful mistakes in a photo that disrupt the image.

As soon as I saw the headline that Amelia Earhart, America’s most popular female aviator, may have survived after her plane disappeared in 1937, I was fucking stoked. Although I wasn’t yet aware of feminism when I learned about her in the 3rd grade, I now consider Amelia Earhart to be my first feminist role model. She was fearless and determined to be great, even if she was hustling in the dangerous, traditionally-men’s field of aviation. And surrounding this bad bitch was a national mystery....
Musician Kate Nash has dipped her toe into acting before. She appeared in 2013 British indie film Powder Room, which was written by a woman (Rachel Hirons, based on her play When Women Wee), directed by a woman (MJ Delaney), and featured an all-female cast including the superb Sheridan Smith. Soon after, in 2014, following a sleepless night in LA, Nash devised an online community via a YouTube channel titled Girl Gang, which was concerned with “outside empowerment” and giving women and feminist men a...
