It’s been ten years since the most problematic and loveable teen drama of the 2000s graced our screens for the first time. When it premiered in 2007, Gossip Girl was a revelation. Thanks to the internet, it was popular in a way that hadn’t been seen in television before, and its portrayal of the way social media affected its characters' lives was eerily prescient. The series, created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who also made The O.C., originally ran on The CW for six seasons and finished in 2012....
  When I popped my headphones in for a first listen of Atlanta singer Mattiel’s debut single “Whites of Their Eyes," I’m pretty sure I held my head higher and puffed out my chest almost immediately. This is the kind of song I would listen to before an important meeting to trick myself into a state of badass confidence. Then I watched the video for the single and the aesthetic is absorbing. It’s crisp, clean, vibrant, and never stops being gorgeous. Narrative takes a backseat to style,...

Amber Rose’s Slutwalk started in 2015 – and only two years later it is killin the game and inspiring thousands. Slutwalk is all about equality – equality for all bodies and genders – while combating sexual assault/harassment. Rose is no stranger to this kind of harassment; as a very public female figure, she has received a hundred-too-many lude comments over the course of her career, which is why she explained she wanted to do the Slutwalk for “women who have been through shit.” Now, the...

    While it’s still 80-something degrees here in Brooklyn, this upcoming week brings the start of the year’s spookiest month — and a new batch of entertainment created by women. This week's edition of Week of Women features an intriguing new horror film called The Sound and the release of Order of the Good Death founder Caitlin Doughty’s latest book. As a reminder, we haven’t seen, read, or listened to all of these ourselves, so if you hate them, don't blame us! But if we have reviewed...
  This week, Broad City returns with “Just the Tips,” and the episode really is all about them: Nails, genitalia, and even amatuer relationship advice. Additionally, a previous character is reintroduced, and an…accident…is thrown abruptly into the mix. Check out our reactions this week! On the opening scene: Danielle: Is he Donald Trump? Lindsay: No, he’s too fashionable. Danielle: IT’S DONALD TRUMP! Lindsay: No! … Maybe Eric at best. When Ilana has a ton of cash money: Danielle: She puts her money in her bed? Why? Lindsay: If you were a robber, would you look...
