  Ever heard of No Shave November? It's that thing where all the men in your life revert back to furry cavemen and some actually donate to cancer treatments, specifically testicular cancer. There’s a running joke online that if girls participate in No Shave November, they’re going to get stuck with No Dick December — meaning that if a girl doesn’t shave, no one would be romantically or sexually interested in her. But like, who wants to sleep with someone who cares about how often you...
  NXIVM, pronounced nex-e-um, bills itself as a self-help organization with programs throughout North America and a goal “to help transform and, ultimately, be an expression of the noble civilization of humans,” according to their website. Besides the fact that statement is nonsense, the Albany-based NXIVM seems to be a lot more insidious than it comes off to be at first glance. The group has been making tons of headlines since The New York Times released an expose on the alleged sex cult offshoot of NXIVM...
Monica Lewinsky, whose name has been dragged through the mud for decades and whose name has become synonymous with "sex scandal," is done keeping quiet. Unsurprisingly, given her experience, she has become more of a social activist in recent years. As a white woman whose affair with the then-President of the United States, Bill Clinton, was hyper-covered by the news and is constantly still brought up, she feels she has some level of social obligation to tackle issues of sexual harassment and assault. But the...
In response to the Trump administration's removal of the Obama-era DACA program, which granted conditional residency to undocumented minors, the organizers of the Women’s March are planning a creative action in N.Y.C. this Saurday 2nd December to raise awareness and put pressure on Congress to pass the DREAM Act into law. By ending DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. The bipartisan Dream Act would protect DACA recipients...
  With almost 1,200 locations, Massage Envy has long been the largest franchise of its kind since the company was founded in 2002. On Sunday, BuzzFeed News reported on over 180 filed complaints, police reports, and sexual assault lawsuits against the spa empire—and called the franchise out for failing to take action. Among the incidents reported was Danielle Dick’s story. Dick wrote on Change.org that she was assaulted at Massage Envy’s Richmond, VA location and, after reporting her abuse to the manager on duty, was told that Massage...
  Since the eve of the election, Americans have taken to the streets to voice their resistance to the current political administration. While documenting the world of chaos and protest that ensued upon Trump's election, I found my eye following the women of these movements. In these photographs, taken in Washington, D.C. and New York City, we see women using their voices as the banner of injustice across the United States and taking center stage in the resistance.

This year, like many years before, has been so full of news about rape, misogyny, and “sexual misconduct.” It’s overwhelming sometimes — but the duty to protect victims of sexual assault never goes away. In September, an 18-year-old woman came forward to say, through her lawyer, that two NYPD detectives, Edward Martins and Richard Hall, raped her after handcuffing her. The New York Times reports that her lawyer said that the detectives approached her while she was hanging out with two friends in their car and ordered...
  No one expects a revolution. Oh sure, uprisings are almost always the result of powder kegs of inequity and frustration built up over time, but no one can accurately predict the stray match which lights up the night. Who would have predicted a dearth of French cake or a shipload of too-taxed tea would be straws that broke the camel’s back? Or a Hollywood mogul. Glance around, girls and boys, we are in the midst of a revolution, though it’s not the one promised or predicted. It’s not...
Et tu, Louis?I silently lamented news of the impending New York Times article breaking down the allegations of comedian Louis C.K.’s "sexual misconduct."Multiple women. Also old news. Multiple articles that gained far less traction in Gawker and elsewhere several years ago had already addressed much of this. And even I was guilty of not giving it as much weight as it should have. Yet I was on the brink of outright denial. “But I like him,” was my thought.Now, Al Franken is accused of sexual harassment. Another...
