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. ...

If you were looking for a great way to spend a weekend in February and wanted to somehow work in groundbreaking films and the awesome ladies involved in making them, then the Athena Film Festival is the place you want to be. Considered a majorly successful celebration of women and leadership in the film industry, the festival is back in its fifth year for a four-day weekend of feature films, documentaries, and shorts at Barnard College. From February 5-8, talented ... Read More
It appears that everyone is now privy to the same rights and privileges as those of us willfully ensconced in hetero-normative life patterns. We’re talking about access to super unnecessary and expensive public symbols of romantic love—the kind featured in Tiffany’s new ad campaign. Two handsome gentlemen sit on the steps of what we're guessing is a fancy pants brownstone (who knows? maybe posing for engagement portraits?) in the ad. They don't ... Read More
We’re super pumped that Girls is back for its first fourth season, and can’t wait to see what’s in store for Hannah, Jessa, Marnie, and Shosh this year (hint: it'll probably have us crying, cringing, and loling.) In honor of the show's return, I spoke with Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, and Zosia Mamet—required reading before Sunday's new episode arrives. Lena Dunham on the critical reception of her book, "Not That Kind of Girl" ... "I've ... Read More
It's been a hot minute since Baby Mama—and now that their Golden Globes performance is in the past we we're hoping for more Amy & Tina action to look forward to in 2015. And here it is! The Sisters teaser is excruciatingly brief, but that does not put a damper on our excitement levels. Yes, we are ready for this jelly: Image via ... Read More
We're just going to put that right there for your perusal. And if you're wondering what the march would have looked like without women, there is also an example of that, courtesy of an ultra Orthodox newspaper that decided no ladies would be an improvement to a solidarity march. See those circles? That's where ladies once were. And here's the original: Conclusions: People notice when you disappear Angela Merkel, and also there clearly need to be more women in ... Read More
So the NY Senate is planning to approve 8 bills on the subject of women’s rights. They're all pretty long overdue, but at least they're on the lineup. The bills would outlaw certain varieties of employment discrimination, require workplace accommodations for pregnant women, allow for sexual harassment complaints at places with fewer than four employees (um, why is this even a question?), ensure equal pay across the gender divide, disallow housing ...

In an awesome, inspiring, ya-damn-right kind of moment, actress Charlize Theron demanded and won a $10 million pay raise for her work in "The Huntsman"—a figure that matches what her co-star Chris Hemsworth made on the film. This is great news for the fight for equal pay (especially arriving on the heels of Sony hack-related emails revealing that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams made waaayyy less than their male counterparts in "American Hustle"). The hack ... Read More
Full disclosure: We're pretty major Madonna fans around these parts, and often find Rihanna to be a bit disappointing (that has not, however, stopped us from jamming out to her music from time to time). So when we came across this RiRi cover of "Vogue," we were prepared to have mixed feelings about it.  No surprises here: We're on the fence—but what do you think? Image c/o Instagram & Sire ...
