  Bienvenidos amigos y espiritusWelcome friends and ghosts As many of you already know, Dias de los Muertos is colorful, musical, and awesome. But what many of you might not know is what the hell it’s actually about. Painted skulls, bright flowers, and altars, right? There’s actually quite a bit more involved. First, did you know its DiaS de los Muertos, as in plural, as in more than one day? It actually falls on two days, All Saints' Day (November 1st) and All Souls' Day (November 2nd) — the...

  Happy November, BUSTies! This week's latest offerings in women-centric pop culture include Greta Gerwig's debut solo directorial film, Lady Bird; a rape recovery movie directed by Jessica M. Thompson and starring Stephanie Beatriz; the return of Shameless; new music by Fever Ray; and a novel by Krysten Ritter. Plus, of course, more. As a reminder, we haven't seen, listened to, or read all these ourselves — when we have, we'll include a link to our coverage. Happy reading, watching, and listening! MOVIES Lady Bird Greta Gerwig makes her solo...
  More than once over the past month, I’ve said something along the lines of, “I want just one day where I don’t have to read, write, and think about rape.” Whether it’s reading about one of the countless famous men who have been accused of sexual assault in the past month, or browsing through Netflix trying to figure out if the show I’m considering binge-watching will use rape as a pointless and quickly forgotten plot device, sometimes it feels like it’s impossible to consume media...

    We just found your next favorite artist — well, six of them, and we didn't find them, feminist-focused media platform The Front and sister curator/director duo Rémy and Kelsey Bennett did. The Bennetts directed and The Front produced “Under Her Skin,” a series of six short films profiling six women visual artists who are different from each other in every way but their talent. I caught the premiere screening at New York’s Roxy Hotel Cinema recently and can’t wait for you to see them, too....
    This post contains spoilers — but come on, you guys, it’s been out for like, a full week. Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for — the long-awaited, synth-driven second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things has arrived! It’s been fifteen long months since we’ve last seen our sweet, spunky kids in action, and to say we missed them is an understatement. Not much has changed in good old Hawkins, but its residents have. With the season one finale’s heart wrenching cliffhangers — from Eleven’s sacrifice to...
    The witches of Shakespeare’s Macbeth come across as less than spellbinding. Cackling, “Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble,” they’re often hunched over bubbling cauldrons filled with eyes of newt and other staples of Halloween party stores. That iconic coven convenes beginning this Halloween in an unfamiliar way. Two women and a man, wearing sneakers and punkish leather jackets, will perform a 20-minute blood ritual reminiscent of modern Wicca. And unlike the stereotypical old hags, these witches are young nomads on the fringes of society. “We bear societal rejection...

  The Deuce. On the hard-to-believe off chance you haven’t heard, it’s the HBO show chronicling the blossoming of the porn business. Everyone loves it. And it takes place in my favorite place in the world: Times Square in the 1970s. I wanted to love The Deuce. I didn't. There is a lot The Deuce gets right about “the Deuce,” as Times Square was known to some in the ‘70s.  But it’s lacking certain essentials. For one, the race-mixing was not that casual. Bars were mostly black, or mostly white....
  Infidelity has existed for as long as relationships have. However, the open practicing of #thotlife or embracing hoe culture are fairly new phenomenons that are helped along by our society’s warped relationship with social media. These songs are great when you're not on the receiving end of the infedelity. Certainly not the most girl empowerment playlist, but hey, we're all bad feminists sometimes. 1. Destiny’s Child — “With Me (Part I)" (1998) "Do you ever wonder when he, don't come homeWho he goes to seeOr why in the middle...
One half of Broad City and all-around inspirational human Ilana Glazer has been making all the right moves lately. Earlier this month, she hit the headlines when she demonstrated that she has zero tolerance for sexual harassment by firing two men on the set of Broad City. This week, she stopped by comedian Petey DeAbreu's podcast Hope Of The Hood, where he explores taboo and complex issues with his guests. Glazer told the full story about the sexual harassment on Broad City, describing her reaction to...
Karen Vidángos has always had a passion for the arts, but as a Latina she rarely saw herself represented in the cultural institutions she visited. So she decided to create an Instagram account to share her own photos, which quickly grew into a collaborative movement of Latinxs in museums all over the country. Her personal account @latinainmuseums and the collaborative @latinxcurated aim to represent Latinxs in the art world, whether as visitors to museums or curators and academics. Karen recently graduated from the George Washington...
