In the midst of feminist coven Lady Parts Justice League’s 8-week national tour to advocate for reproductive rights, they’re also launching a 10-day public awareness campaign to “engage repro rights supporters, partner organizations, and new activists around the country in online and in-person actions to expose fake clinics.” “What are fake clinics,” you ask? (I did.) No worries, the reason you probably haven’t heard that term is because they call themselves "Crisis Pregnancy Centers” [CPCs]. And by “Crisis Pregnancy Center,” they mean a place (often...
After a dinner to mark the end of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Trump told, The New York Times “So, I was seated next to the wife of Prime Minister Abe [Shinzo Abe of Japan], who I think is a terrific guy, and she’s a terrific woman, but doesn’t speak English — like not ‘hello.’” Despite the language barrier, the two hour long dinner otherwise went well, Trump explained. “But I enjoyed the evening with her, and she’s really a lovely woman, and I enjoyed —...
GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Shelley Moore Capito (West Virginia) are the three Senators who are working to make sure the Affordable Care Act isn't repealed. The Republican leadership in the Senate wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but the fact that there was no replacement lined up made these three Senators wary of supporting it. All three women released statements against the bill and any attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, especially without a replacement. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell...
Society has a long way to go in terms of its representation of women. From Jessica Chastain calling out Cannes’ less-than-complex portrayal of its female characters to Andy Murray correcting a reporter that neglected to acknowledge Serena Williams’ accomplishments, it seems that the world still has a difficult time accepting and supporting women in nontraditional roles. When I watched Wonder Woman, it literally moved me to tears because it was so empowering - and so rare - to see a lady with a mind of her...
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...
