When Jodie Whittaker was announced as the first female Doctor in Doctor Who’s history, I expected there to be some backlash and criticism over the casting, but The Sun and The Daily Mail took it to a whole new level of misogyny with their coverage. They decided the most noteworthy acting in Whittaker’s past was the nude scenes from her movie Venus, and they just had to cover that. They then preceded to screenshot scenes where Whittaker is nude and very loosely relate it to...
This Friday will mark the 6-month anniversary of the revolutionary Women’s March that took place on January 21, and we’re proud to say the Resistance is still going strong. That doesn’t mean, however, that we’re not becoming exhausted — or worse, unphased — by the day-in day-out bullshit that floods our TVs, browsers, newspapers, and conversations. So if you need a place to replenish your spirit and reclaim your soul, or just a place to connect with your fellow advocates for humanity, Resistance Revival has...
We are so excited to share that Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez is our August/September 2017 cover gal! Over the past few years, we’ve been impressed with the way Gina has spoken out about the importance of diversity both in front of and behind the camera — in terms of race, gender, size and more. Plus, she’s made those of us who are Jane the Virgin fans cry more times than we can count, thanks to her incredible acting skills. Along with gorgeous photos co-starring...
R&B singer R. Kelly is in the headlines for doing awful, creepy shit (again) after a Buzzfeed article hit the internet alleging that Kelly is running an abusive cult. These allegations are supported by claims from the parents of two different women, a 21-yr-old from Georgia and a 19-year-old from Florida, who are now living with Kelly. Three former members of Kelly’s inner circle - Cheryl Mack (previously his personal assistant) and Kitti Jones and Asante McGee (who both said they lived with Kelly and...

The facts are these: my friend Iris*, objectively wonderful and attractive on many different levels, was asked on a date by a TinderDude - let’s call him Douche Canoe (D.C. for short). D.C. requested, after the usual back-and-forth, that Iris meet him at a local brewery on a Tuesday night. Here is what unfolded. - 6:55 pm - Iris arrives at the brewery, which is packed with other young and hip and dreamy people, looks like someone’s living room, and — as is now required of all establishments by law...
You’d think by now Trump would’ve learned what is and isn’t appropriate to say. He’s made it clear that he doesn’t know how to treat women properly (that whole "grab ‘em by the pussy" thing I’ve been trying to unhear), but when addressing a politician’s wife, he should know better than to hit on her. While in Paris, he and Melania met with the French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron for a parade in honor of Bastille Day. The whole interaction was...
   A teenage girl in Nepal, Tulasi Shahi, died after being bitten by a snake, twice in her head and once on her leg, while she was banished to a cowshed during a menstruation ritual, writes the New York Times. Shahi, 18, was taking part in Chhaupadi - which translates to “untouchable being”- still a common practice in rural areas, though banned in 2005, in which women, believed to be unclean during menstruation, are sequestered for the duration for their periods. Chhaupadi is not just relegated...
While it should be clear to all of us that Serena Williams is a boss, one journalist’s casual sexism (aka failure to acknowledge her accomplishments as a woman) suggests otherwise. Thankfully, British tennis star Andy Murray was there to remind him. (Watch the clip at the bottom of this post for the real deal.) Murray had just lost the Wimbledon quarterfinals to American Sam Querray when a journalist started a question with: “Andy, Sam is the first American player to reach the semi-final of a Slam...
Yesterday, we wrote about how Betsy DeVos is consulting “men’s rights” groups along with victims’ rights groups while she is considering how to move forward with guidelines regarding sexual assault on college campuses. Well, the news just keeps getting worse. In an interview with the New York Times, Candice Jackson, the top civil rights official at the Department of Education, said that 90% of women who make rape accusations are lying about them. Some things Jackson, who is a sexual assault survivor herself, said: there is...
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is turning her attention to rape on college campuses...but instead of working to make campuses safer for women and LGBTQ folks, as the Obama administration did, she’s turning to “Men’s Rights Activists” to hear their advice. Because MRAs who insist that false rape accusations are the *real* epidemic deserve to be heard out, right? Uh...no. According to Politico, DeVos is meeting with different organizations to hear advice on how college campuses should handle sexual assault accusations and protect students. But DeVos isn't...
