Nestled between Harvard University dorms and Cambridge coffee shops, the Democracy Center has been transformed into a feminist gathering space this chilly April evening. Inside, artists display embroidery hoops filled with feminist phrases and cross-stitch patterns of the female form. The theme of the night is witchcraft, so “Hex the Patriarchy” tote bags and crystal jewelry join the scene. Visitors learn to spin plastic bags into thread and embroider their own designs while milling about between vendor tables. By the end of the night, visitors...

It’s been over a week since leaving the wondrous world of C2E2, Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. I attended many panels and even ran into some of the folks from Cracked. I went into C2E2 weekend thinking I was going to write about women in comic books, but instead, I was taught about women in geek culture. Typically, when people think of geek culture, they think it's predominantly male. But the panels, authors, artists, presenters, and cosplayers I spoke to over the weekend prove this stereotype...

  3 GENERATIONS is a movie about transitioning, but it isn't a movie about a transgender teen. It showcases how hard it is on a family — the two older generations — when their child and grandchild is trans. This uninspiring film, starring Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts, and Susan Sarandon, struggles to find what it wants to say, probably because it doesn't even know what to call itself. The movie was first titled 3 GENERATIONS, then changed its name to ABOUT RAY, and is now 3 GENERATIONS again. To...

Director Vera Miao says she was inspired by the popular Reddit thread to create a series of short films, the first of which is MA, featuring a strained mother-daughter relationship that complicates a blossoming romance with another woman.  The Internet trend dubbed "Two Sentence Horror Stories" is exactly what it sounds like, two sentences that tell a spooky story.
