Marvel Comics’ Black Panther is not only historic as a comic book for featuring the first black superhero, it’s also making its mark on history with the upcoming film version, out on February 16, 2018. Even though Marvel has cranked out seventeen film installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is the first major superhero film to star a black actor, Chadwick Boseman, who plays T’Challa (aka Black Panther), the king of the fictional African country Wakanda. 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.

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...

Songwriter, choreographer, and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul has finally dusted off her dancing shoes and graced us all with her presence and talents after a long 25 years. The last time she went on tour was in 1991-1992 for her international Under My Spell Tour, which was named by a fan from an MTV contest submission. Now she is opening up for boy band New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) on their current Total Package Tour – and it’s nothing short of awesome. The announcement...

Céline Dion is a queen. Whether it’s recently posing naked for Vogue Magazine or racking up those dollar signs with her choice of wardrobe ensembles ($108,000+), Dion knows how to slay, even without a microphone in hand. But if you still don’t believe me, watch and listen to some of her on-stage performances – such as “The Power of the Dream” at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, “That’s The Way It Is” with *NSYNC during her “All the Way... A Decade of Song” TV special...

As a Romani woman from a long, matrilineal line of healers and magic workers, how could I fail to be intrigued by Kristen J. Sollée’s book, Witches, Sluts, Feminists. It’s a scintillating, wry, and accessibly academic overview of the witch archetype in relation to the European and American witch hunts, and to the festival of misogyny in current American politics. Sollée, a professor of Genders Studies at The New School, teaches a popular class on the same topic. In the book, Sollée explores the deadly interplay...
