As you probably already know, Ava DuVernay is directing a new movie adaptation of the classic Madeleine L’Engle YA novel A Wrinkle In Time (which, btw, makes her the first black woman to direct a film with a budget of over $100 million). DuVernay’s film has an incredible — and diverse — cast, with Storm Reid starring as Meg Murray, and Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling playing Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Who. Other cast members include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris Pine, Andre...
“Tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell your families,” Issa Rae, the badass co-creator and star of the HBO show Insecure, just tweeted a video announcing the date of Insecure’s Season 2 [remiere. Psst, it’s July 23rd. Rae wouldn’t comment on the relationship status of Issa (Issa Rae) or Molly (Yvonne Orji), but she did say “it’s about to get hot this summer” and that the already dope show is about to get “doper than ever!” "When does season 2 of #InsecureHBO premiere," you ask? pic.twitter.com/PtyKm2QHNw — Issa...
I was introduced to Lauren Bacall in To Have and Have Not at age 8. I remember watching a confident, mysterious young woman on screen who stood up for herself in the French Resistance and dominated a romantic relationship. I thought to myself, I want to be her. Because I was raised by a single mother and moved back-and-forth from California to New York through most of my childhood, it was challenging to maintain friendships and find a role model. After moving, I spent most of...
Laura Marling had an early arrival to the limelight, but that hasn’t hindered her in her success or development as an artist. At 27 years old, the British songstress could sit aside greats such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen and effortlessly hold her own. Releasing her latest album Semper Femina during the same week as International Women’s Day feels like much more than a blissful coincidence. Since then we have had it on a loop. The album, Latin for “always a woman,” which...

While Ilana Glazer may let it all hang out in her comedy show, Broad City, she is very reserved about her personal life. It came as a surprise for us all when Pheobe Robinson, of the podcast Two Dope Queens, posted a congratulatory pic on Instagram, writing: “Belated congrats to these beautiful [babies] on getting hitched. Love you hard and deep. You’re truly #RelationshipGoals and inspire me.” According to The Cut, Glazer married long-term boyfriend, David Rooklin, at a small city hall ceremony in February. She...
I love Mad Men — I love the clothes and the cars and the way in which Don Draper navigates New York City, but mostly I love it because it’s fascinating to explore an era that feels distant from today. These days, however, it is feeling a lot less distant. With our president making overtly sexist comments —  pussygate being the crown jewel of his various lewd remarks — Mad Men era advertisements feel particularly poignant, or so feels Saint Hoax, an anonymous artist working in...
Last week, SNL made headlines with a sketch of men using feminism as a pickup line. This past Saturday, the crew was back at it again with "A Sketch for the Women," on the theme of male feminists, this time tackling the ever-irritating trend of men mansplaining women’s issues. Host Scarlett Johansson and cast member Aidy Bryant began the sketch by explaining that they, and the entire female cast, had proudly taken the day off for A Day Without A Woman. Because the sketches are...
In a brilliant way to demonstrate sexism in publishing, a bookstore in Cleveland, Ohio has turned all the books by men backward for Women’s History Month, leaving only the spines of books by women visible. Loganberry Books shared photos of their bookstore display earlier this month, and they have since gone viral. “Illustrating the fiction gender gap: We’ve silenced male authors, leaving works of women in view,” reads a sign by one bookshelf. Loganberry Books founder Harriet Logan told BuzzFeed that she has highlighted women’s work every...
Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel the Handmaid’s Tale is coming out on April 26th. And this weekend, at SXSW, Hulu pulled a bit of terrifying viral marketing by having women dressed up as Handmaids roam the streets of Austin, Texas. As many people are pointing out on social media, the dystopia of The Handmaid’s Tale has a few too many things in common with Trump’s America — the regulation of women’s bodies, anti-Muslim rhetoric coming from the government, “fake news” — so the sight...
