I first read A Wrinkle In Time when I was in elementary school, and I immediately fell in love with main character Meg Murry because, like her, I was a shy, smart, awkward nerd with three annoying little brothers. And then when I was 12, a film adaptation came out — the 2003 Disney adaptation. I remember sitting down to watch it with said annoying little brothers, my parents, and mountains of popcorn...and I don’t think we even made it through the whole thing, it...

A book doesn't need 1,000 pages to be revelatory — sometimes short, concise works can be the most powerful. For our book review sidebar in our June/July 2017 issue, we're spotlighting three recentlyp ublished brief books by big-time writers. from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's 80-page tretise on feminism and motherhood, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestions, to novelist Tracy Chevalier's 208-page reimagining of a Shakespeare classic, you should be able to read these books in a single afternoon — but we won't blame you if...

Sports movies that star women allow us to see the joys and tribulations female athletes face on a daily basis. Well-known movies, such as A League of Their Own (1992), Bend It Like Beckham (2002) and Girlfight (2000), may come to mind. But how about the stories of everyday women or professional female athletes that don’t necessarily make it to the big silver screen? The Women Sports Film Festival is the world’s first film festival to focus on female athletes – and it’s now gearing up for its...

I saw Wonder Woman on Saturday. Oh, wow. I had all the reactions everybody else did, and maybe a whole lot more. In my day job, I’m a costume designer, and I can’t ever really turn that off. When I watch something period or fantasy, aside from my usual internal monolog praising or criticizing construction techniques, etc., I often find myself “reverse engineering” the designer’s work, looking for hints about their inspiration or research. Sometimes I can tell exactly which painting, which historical artifact, a...

Beth Ditto has never not been in a band. The self-described "fat, feminist lesbian from Arkansas" grew up with six siblings and 100 or so Bee-Gees-worshipping cousins. That's a big band. Then, of course, there was The Gossip, who were together for 17 years before they split in 2016. Ditto's first solo album, Fake Sugar, debuted in June after some very tantalizing video previews. On the record's first single, "Fire," Ditto reminds us that she's a rock 'n' roll Dolly Parton at her core. (She also...

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...
