The trailer for the new Woody Allen movie is here, and we’re far from excited about its arrival. In fact, just the thought of all the attention the film is already garnering is getting us pretty upset: Allen is one of many powerful men whose sexual abuse allegations have been pushed to the side because of their status as, well, powerful men. The sad truth is that people turn a blind eye because this kind of treatment of male celebrities (Bill Cosby, ... Read More
    To fans of Hole’s seminal 1994 album Live Through This, the sound of Patty Schemel behind a drum kit is simply unmistakable. As I wandered through the factories of East Williamsburg in search of the venue where Patty and her pop-punk band Upset were sound-checking before their show, I heard those blistering clicks and felt as if I’d found the north star. I knew I was in the right place.   Patty Schemel is an unusual figure in ... Read More
  Stacey Dash commented on Rita Wilson’s new video about the gender wage gap, and her response is so much more awkward that you could imagine. Sitting across from Meredith Vieira, Dash is quite perceptibly uncomfortable. In between sweeping her hair out of her face and appearing not to breathe, she explains to viewers why she’s not a fan of the MakeItFair video. Now this isn’t because of celebrity drama or something that would make more ... Read More
“From the forest… out of dirt and sticks” emerged Khaleesi dressed as Kristen Wiig. Wait, it's actually Kristen Wiig dressed as Khaleesi on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon—and it couldn't have been more hilarious. Neither Fallon nor Wiig—who have unparalleled platonic chemistry—were able to hold it together during last night's seven minute segment. And between the newest hit “Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful” and ... Read More
Once upon a time thousands of millennials with unpaid internships and nutrient-deficient ramen-diets bought tickets to SXSW, spent all their money on tattoos, and then decided to have babies. False. The Urban Institute recently published a study that puts statistics to the reality millennials live in: They may be of prime child bearing age, they may have loving romantic relationships, and careers that are slowly taking shape—but they can’t, they ...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed her optimism earlier in February that the court will eventually rule in favor of gay marriage. However, the Supreme Court was still deeply divided on Tuesday when they started to hear oral arguments to the historic Obergefell v. Hodges—even though anti-gay activists are also expecting gay marriage to ultimately win out. Accepting possible defeat (and being on the wrong side of history) didn’t stop anti-gay activists from ...

There are things going down in the Vatican we can finally appreciate: Pope Francis has deemed inequality in the workplace a “pure scandal.” By prompting Christians to be “more demanding” for “radical equality” through “supporting the right of equal pay for equal work,” the Pope believes there will be an increase in the amount of successful marriages in a “society (that) is confront with fewer” ones. He ... Read More
This week (April 28th) we celebrated the 85th Birthday of Nancy Drew, and although her adventures can seem a little dated, we have learned a lot from this badass lady sleuth. At the time there weren't many role models for girls who were all things brainy, brave and feminine, and the values she instilled in us are timeless. Here are 10 of our favorites: Women Can Do Anything - Even In A Skirt Patriarchy didn’t stop Nancy Drew, and neither did her flawless ... Read More
The first few times Poppy Smart was catcalled by construction workers on her way to work in Worcester UK, she tried to ignore it: "I started wearing sunglasses so I didn't have to look at them. I started putting headphones on so I didn't have to hear them," she told BBC news. But, after a month of street harassment, she decided enough was enough, and reported the workers to the police.   Woah, the police?! That seems extreme, right? Wrong. As long as women ... Read More
More fantastically depressing news on the government regulated abortion front: North Carolina Republican State Rep. Jacqueline Schaffer addressed the North Carolina State House on Monday to pass a 72 hour waiting period for abortions. “The poorest decisions that we make are the ones that we make under pressure and on impulse and so we want to ensure that women have ample amount of time to receive that information so that they can make the best ...
