In 2004, AdWeek announced that Safilea Ahmed, a 17-year-old girl, had been suffocated by her parents after she refused an arranged marriage. It was eight years later when Safilea’s parents were finally convicted of her murder. It took Ahmed’s sister coming forth with the claim of having seen her sister asphyxiated with a plastic bag to sentence the couple.  They will do no less than 25 years of jail time - and we don't even think ...

Between 1888 and 1899 the first auto repair shop opened, Carnation processed its first can of evaporated milk, and Edwin Prescott patented the roller coaster. More extraordinary than canned milk, though, is that there are 5 people who were born during those years who are actually still alive today and, damn, they look good. Bringing new meaning to, “I’ve seen it all” these five women have been through some of the greatest moments in history all ... Read More
Stay-at-home dad, Ryan Park, once had the honor of working under Ruth Bader Ginsburg and just gave us another reason to love the Supreme Court Justice. Ginsburg is only the second female Justice that America has seen (Sandra Day O’Connor was the first), and has taken tremendous action for women’s rights in her lifetime, by overcoming societal barriers and actively creating gender equality through U.S. law. The entire Atlantic article is definitely ... Read More
We weren’t sure the Pope (whom we’ve now officially dubbed “Cool Pope” by the way) could surpass said coolness, but he’s just freed the nipple in the Sistine Chapel. So... We think it’s pretty safe to say he is now the coolest pope. Ever. Last Sunday, he went to work baptizing 33 infants for the annual Feast of the Baptism of the Lord and encouraged mothers to go ahead and breastfeed their kiddos if they cried from hunger during ...

We were so ready for Broad City to come back. It’s like the weird but awesome BFFs you made in college are swinging back into town you just know something insane is about to go down once a week for a while. And now that Comedy Central is definitely renewing our gal pal duo for a third season, we can relaxed about potential separation anxiety. #FTW But there is EVEN MORE AWESOME NEWS on the Broad City front: a brand new app called the Broad City Keyboard is ...

Miley Cyrus is naked (again), this time in V magazine’s music issue (out January 15th). By this point, Miley’s transformation from Disney Channel’s packaged innocence to subversive pop star is about complete. A proud supporter of the Free the Nipple campaign, Miley has no qualms about baring buns and other bits—and she has a solid reason behind her decision to strip down. “It’s not about getting your titties out. It’s ... Read More
  Every so often, a filmmaker comes along who shows us the world from an entirely new angle. We're currently obsessed Desiree Akhavan, co-creator and star of the web series The Slope, and we're certain she's on the cusp of something seriously big. Akhavan’s first feature, Appropriate Behavior, premiered last year at Sundance Film Festival, and has since been to a total of 90 festivals. In it, Akhavan plays a young Brooklynite named Shirin who finds ... Read More
In recent nifty gadget news, tech industries are releasing more and more products marketed towards women. Unsurprisingly, these new toys are mainly health and fitness trackers designed to be prettier and thus more appealing. Here’s where that aggravates us: First off, making your new fitness trackers look pretty for women because you think a couple of crystals will win us over is dumb. Utility products should  be about utility, not how much you can ... Read More
Once again, Elizabeth Warren has denied her plans to run for the presidency (and once again, we’re bummed about it). In a recent interview with Fortune, the senator bluntly said 'no' when she was asked if her name would appear on the ticket in 2016. We’re still excited to see Hillary Clinton’s rumored bid continue gaining ground, but the more powerful and outspoken women on the political scene (or any scene, for that matter), the better. ...
