Supergirl. It is a name that carries a long history, but it is largely unknown outside of comic book circles. To think that Kara Zor-El (the OG Supergirl) is just a Superman female counterpart ignores the more than fifty-plus-years that the character has been a part of the DC Comics world. While there is no way to fully delve into the long history of the Girl of Steel, with the upcoming show on CBS, she becomes one of the few female heroines to be leading a show ... Read More

Another day, another senator who does not understand how birth control works, despite wanting to pass legislation banning certain kinds of birth control. Can we get these guys a pamphlet? This time it was Sen. Kevin Lundberg from Colorado, who serves as chair of the Health and Human Services committee. He has characterized IUDs as abortion causing drugs, even though health care experts have said that isn’t true. It just...is not true. In the Coloradoan, ... Read More

Israeli Artist Amit Shimoni's HIPSTORY series is the talk of the town—and we can see why. Part ironic, part thought- provoking and part fun, his illustrations are colorful portraits of world leaders past and present. The twist? He depicts them in full hipster getup, from adding fitted jackets and flower crowns to full on facial piercings. We recently chatted with Shimoni about his inspiration behind the project and his plans for the female-centric SHEPSTORY ... Read More
It's hard enough to teach a room full of hormonally-unstable fifth graders how to do multiplication, but it's probably much harder when you know you won't be able to TGIF-party down with a couple of beers when the weekend rolls around.  That's just one hardship teachers faced during the 1920s. Specifically, one hardship female teachers faced. Thanks to a host of sexist and oppressing vintage ads, we already know that having a va-jay-jay back in the day ... Read More

Thankfully, some artists and projects—like Advanced Style—are promoting different styles of beauty. Young artist Sasha Frolova, a freelance photographer and actress based in NYC, had done a collection of photos featuring her ... Read More

And though Slate might be stepping down from her lead at FX don’t mistake that as our gal getting a downgrade. Because in actuality could ... Read More
When Brooklyn-based artist Caledonia Curry, AKA "Swoon," found herself at a table with activist, writer, and all-around goddess Gloria Steinem, she literally gave her the ring off her finger. We are all green with envy. It was the all too perfect scenario of meeting your feminist role model while wearing a vagina-inspired accessory and having the gusto to be like, “Gloria Steinem, will you wear my clit ring?” (Okay, so she probably didn’t ...
