Gaby Dunn, a Los Angeles-based YouTube star, made her entrance into the podcasting world when Bad With Money, a weekly podcast that focuses on — you guessed it — money, was released mid-August. The podcast, which is part of the Panoply network, has garnered a four-and-a-half-star rating in the few months since its debut. Bad With Money isn’t an instructional podcast; you won’t find tips on saving or a step-by-step guide to maximizing your income. Rather, Dunn opens the floor for a conversation that is...
There has been nonstop protesting and marches since Inauguration Day. The Women’s March brought a historic crowd to the National Mall, but today we’re seeing a very different type of march. The March For Life began today and brought together anti-choice advocates from all across the country. The 44th annual March for Life is always held around the same time as the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade abortion case. The goal of the march is to push for more legislation limiting abortion. While the march...
  Sometimes not being home in the USA is hard. It's hard when you miss an important birthday or when you're sick and just want the comfort of things from your childhood. It's hard when you see photos of your friends out at your favorite restaurant, all together without you. But sometimes, it's unbelievably empowering to be away and to see how small and united the world has become.There were over 600 Women's Marches around the world on January 21, 2017, and I was fortunate enough...

When James Corden retweets you, you know you've hit the pop-culture jack pot. This week, 20-year-old Molly-Mae tweeted a photo that seems to have originally appeared on 52, a French feminist group's Twitter. The tweet mocks a recent photo of Donald Trump surrounded by white men as he signed the reinstating of the "global gag rule," which cuts off international health organisations who perform abortions, among other vital health services, from U.S funding. The rule is yuuuge setback and might lead many countries health clinics to...

  Iranian Women Lose Their Right to Bike Things have been tough for Iranian women ever since the country’s 1979 revolution severely curtailed their rights. And now, even their right to ride bicycles is under attack. A group of women was arrested in July for riding bikes in preparation for a cycling event in the northwestern city of Marivan, and they were subsequently forced to sign pledges promising that they wouldn’t repeat the “violation.” There has never been an official law banning women from cycling, but in...
When I arrived at the rally, I ran into an acquaintance I hadn’t seen in years. We weren’t close — she’d mistakenly thought I’d moved to Chicago in the interim. But she immediately enfolded me in a giant, tight, genuine hug, asking if I were going to march next weekend.It felt good. I’d been nervous. I was surprised my northeastern Florida town — not populous enough, I thought, to create even a tiny blue oasis in an otherwise-hundred-mile radius of red — was on the...
Anger was found in the pink thread that formed "pussy hats.” In the dry ink. Within the fibers of the wooden sticks we fastened signs to. And in the eyes of thousands of women and men who gathered in Paris, France. "So so solidarité" the women chanted, "Avec les femmes du monde entier." (Solidarity with women around the world.) What happens, I wondered, when the anger becomes silent? When thousands of beanies occupy closet space? When our hands, once stained with permanent black marker, are washed clean?...
The Netherlands will not be putting up with Trump and the GOP’s shit. In one of his first acts as POTUS, very-confused-about-abortion Donald Trump reinstated the “Global Gag Rule,” banning U.S. foreign aid going to any organization which supports abortion, even if foreign aid does not go directly towards performing the abortions. Much like scrapping federal funding to Planned Parenthood, which cannot go towards abortions anyway, such moves punish those who rely on non-abortion-related health services for purely ideological reasons. The Netherlands have responded by throwing some delicious,...
Just days after the women’s march, the Republicans in the House of Representatives once again proved that they won’t listen to what women have to say about their reproductive rights. The House of Representatives just passed a bill titled HR7 which would basically make the Hyde Amendment law, as opposed to a budget rider. For those unaware, the Hyde Amendment is a provision that bars the use of federal funds to pay for abortions except in the case of rape, incest or to save the life...
New Premier of New South Wales Gladys Berejiklian with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Via Twitter/@turnbullmalcolm On Monday, an Australian woman broke a political glass ceiling. Gladys Berejiklian, became the first ever female state premier from the Liberal Party (the conservative* major party — confusing, yes) after she was elected head of Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales. Her achievement shouldn’t be overlooked. While there have been six female Australian state premiers before her, Berejiklian is the first one to be representing the conservative Liberal Party which, much like...
