Last night’s Grammys were full of moving performances, funny and awkward moments, and empowering red carpet interviews—but obviously here at BUST we were on the lookout for feminist moments, and we've narrowed it down to our top five. This last year has shone a lot of light on domestic violence and assault issues, so we’re dedicating our first three moments to the three people that rose to the occasion about brought awareness and empathy ...

Nothing says I love you more than gift bags full of hand-crocheted flower pens, mosaic portraits of friends made from crushed bottles of their favorite sodas, and personalized 5,000 word essays on why they’re so great. But if you’re low on spare time and you’re not Leslie Knope, we’ve gathered 13 other ways to celebrate the true day of love—Galentine’s Day. 1. Name A Roach—Why get your bestie a cheap BFF necklace from Claire’s when you can ...

The New York City comedy scene is kind of a fluky bandwagon. There is an overwhelming amount of access to amazing standup and improv shows, but embarrassing and off-putting comedy acts are still a dime a dozen. It’s kind of impossible to know for sure if a show is a worthwhile investment, but it’s also usually cheaper than buying a movie ticket. To the theater, then! Two shows particular have caught our eye—and our funny-bone—recently, and ... Read More
The Grammys red carpet is always a welcome departure from the play-it-safe motto of almost every other show during awards season. How many women would actually prefer wearing a sleek black floor-length gown? Yawn. With all the focus on the performances, the Grammys invite so much more risk-taking. There were so many phenomenal outfits last night, but one trend we were particularly psyched about? The almost unheard of number of ladies dressed in pants. The Haim ... Read More
It happens every year: It's almost Valentine's Day and you haven't even begun to think about cards or gifts. Bully for you, Internet fandoms exist! Dozens—or, you know, thousands—of folks have taken to crafting some awesome Downton Abbey-inspired cyber cards, each perfectly encapsulating the world of our favorite post-Edwardian gossip hounds. Nothing says love like repressed sexuality and lots of death. Here are 10 of our favorites from across the ... Read More
There's no way around it: online dating is a stressful ordeal. But some impressive women have created new apps that give women more control, fostering a safer environment and leaving more room for actual, ya know, dating. Here are three that particularly intrigue us. Antidate: For BUSTies in the U.K., Hatty Kingsley-Miller and Mo Saha (see above) created an app that combining features OkCupid, Siren, and Grindr. Women's profiles and locations are kept private; ... Read More
The red carpet is our lead-in to events meant to celebrate the talent of highly esteemed artists—but somehow it's still amuck with ridiculous pageantry and blatant sexism. Female actors are bombarded with stupid questions ranging anywhere from “Who are you wearing tonight?” to, um, “Who are you wearing tonight?” And if they’re lucky they may be asked about whom they are sleeping with or how they stay fit. This isn't to say male ... Read More
Happy Friday, BUSTies! We unfortunately have no riveting "snowstorm" stories to tell this week. Thankfully, we did find a bit more to talk about beyond Super Bowl Sunday. Here are five feminist stories you may have missed this week: One badass artist is shining a light on lady models of every size. We get some major body positivity vibes from female photographer Sophie Spinelle, who empowers women through her company, Shameless Photography. Read our ... Read More
We're all constantly told to ignore the trolls—a nice idea, but pretty ineffective in execution. The trolls are packing peanuts that exploded via opening a box on your living room floor. They're not going anywhere. Thankfully, it looks as though responding to sexist numbskulls on Twitter invites others to do the same, and effectively benefits women's mental health. Anyone who has grown up female, a person of color, LGBTQ, or otherwise marginalized knows the ... Read More
Punxsutawney Phil, the asshole he is, told us this week that we're going to be enduring six more weeks of winter. Great, you think, as you empty the slush that somehow made its way inside your boots. If only we could all just crawl back into the ground and sleep for a month and a half. Groundhog jerk. So yes, you're stuck in your winter wardrobe for what looks like the foreseeable future. But instead of grudgingly pulling on another sweater, why not brighten up ... Read More
