There have been recent attacks on women's bodies in France. Armed French police approached a woman dressed in a headscarf, blue long-sleeved shirt, and leggings on the beach and issued her a fine for violating the controversial band on the burkini (swimsuit that covers the whole body). Startling images surfaced in Nice show four police officers hovering over a woman, who was simply relaxing on the beach. The woman, after seeing the armed guards approaching, quickly took off her blue tunic to placate the police… Read more
According to a 2015 State of Women-Owned Business report by American Express Open, it is estimated that black women in the United States currently own 1.3 million businesses nationwide, making them the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs today. The last ten years have seen an increasing number of black women embracing their natural beauty by “going natural,” eschewing the chemical relaxers used to permanently straighten the natural curl pattern in favor of learning how to properly style and maintain their own hair… Read more

How A Corset Saved One Victorian Woman's Life

By Mimi Matthews  In Style  On Aug 24, 2016

Considering how often corsets, crinolines, and towering headpieces were responsible for some hapless female’s untimely demise, it seems only fair that occasionally fashion should be credited with saving a historical lady’s life instead of putting an end to it. For an example of this, we need look no further than author and historian Margaret Drinkall’s newly published book The 19th Century Barnsley Murders. A collection of seventeen carefully detailed and impeccably sourced incidents of true crime that took place in… Read more
Big news for fans of Empire or Taraji P. Henson (so, that’s every single one of our readers, right?) — Taraji is collaborating with MAC on a makeup line called MAC Taraji.

I was the epitome of uncool in middle school. Almost all of my “friends” were people who would make fun of me constantly and in exchange for putting up with this, they might invite me out every six months. The sadness of being left out and bullied was worsened by how desperately I wanted a boy to like me. How could I meet anyone, especially someone of the opposite gender, if I never had the opportunity to? To search for potential pals, I decided to join a theater group in a community center. My interest in theater was… Read more

Against Me! Has A New Video And Lightsaber Guitars Are Involved

By Katherine Barner  In Music  On Aug 23, 2016

Against Me! led by Laura Jane Grace, defeats a Darth Vader-like character with lightsaber guitars (you heard that right) in this hilarious low-budget video. The band dons comical face paint, looking like a punk rock KISS, while jumping and dancing around the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia. The room is decorated in a plethora of Christmas lights in an otherwise dark room, creating a DIY outer space-like vibe. "This was one of the most difficult videos we've ever made because it was filmed in outer space," drummer Atom… Read more

Santi discussed, “Kara snapped a silhouette photo of me in the dark as I stepped into my cab.” The result was an inspiring, catchy video “Banshee” that displayed each of their artistic… Read more

What It's Like To Travel Alone As A 20-Year-Old Woman

By Gabby Catalano  In Living  On Aug 23, 2016

There was a moment, the last time I traveled alone, when I was stumbling through the lit streets of London’s SoHo district, intoxicated from hours of authentic Thai food, vivid conversations, and pints of hard cider, that I thought, “This really was the best idea ever.” This experience was just three weeks ago, and it was my first time traveling in a foreign country solo. That moment of clarity continued for the next week of my trip, embarking on some Eat, Pray, Love realizations. I found myself feeling empowered as a… Read more

Donald Trump has turned over a new leaf and is advocating for acceptance across religion, sexualities, and gender. In a new stage of his campaign, he is calling for a weeding out process for potential immigrants, called “extreme vetting”— that would guarantee that "only those who we expect to flourish in our country and to embrace a tolerant, American society, should be issued visas," according to Cosmopolitan. That's right. Trump is campaigning for tolerance and acceptance. Bigots are no longer welcome. The Daily Show… Read more
Recently, an archived interview has resurfaced that by no means has aged well, due to the fact that we now know women are actually humans and not sex objects. The footage from 1975 shows a 30-year-old Helen Mirren being subjected to a slimy late night host, Michael Parkinson, who asked her if the size of her breasts “hinder’s her in your pursuit of the ambition of being a successful actress or serious actress.” among other atrocious moments of British sexism at its best: For her introduction, Parkinson proudly states,… Read more

Helen Mirren On That Sexist Interview: 'It Was Enraging'

By BUST Magazine  In Movies  On Aug 23, 2016

Helen Mirren is best known for playing various members of the House of Windsor. But in real life, the boundary-busting actress is anything but restrained. Here, she talks about her films, her family, and why it’s great that young women today can just say “Fuck off” I am 45 minutes late for my on-set appointment with Helen Mirren. As a punctual person, this is my worst nightmare come true: sitting in a rental car, stuck in traffic, surrounded by Yankee Stadium–bound partiers, all the while knowing that The Queen is… Read more

By Patricia Affriol  In General  On Aug 22, 2016

We all know JK Rowling is boss. The legendary author whose characters captured the hearts of many has stood up for LGBT rights, diverse representation in her movies, and the welfare system. To add to her impressive progressive resume, this bad-ass British icon has once again reminded us how awesome she is by revealing the dark truth behind an issue that plagues the idealist mindset: Voluntourism.

Serial Rapists Are Given Criminally Light Sentences

By Myra Pearson  In Feminism  On Aug 22, 2016

A serial rapist in Chattanooga, TN, has claimed his fifth victim while out on probation. Willie James Bradley, a registered sex offender, had been charged with rape five times prior, but in each case, pled guilty to assault charges in exchange for lighter sentences. Bradley was first charged with aggravated rape in 1999, but he pled guilty to a battery charge and served six years in jail. This would be the longest sentence he would receive over the course of the next 17 years. In Tennessee, aggravated rape carries a… Read more
As an INFJ, there is nothing more precious to me than alone time. Ask me to describe my perfect weekend and I’ll tell you it’s just me, myself, a book or two, and a candlelit bath, devoid of the pressure to hold a conversation with anyone that I know will eventually result in an awkward silence, during which I stare at the floor and shuffle my feet and maybe burp. Also, ask me how many times in this past week alone I’ve sent “Hey sorry, I actually can’t go out tonight, I’m not feeling well” texts, and then just sat on… Read more

Mentally Ill, Addicted, And Medicated: BUST True Story

By Emma Faesi Hudelson  In Living  On Aug 22, 2016

I left the teenage psych ward with a folder full of handouts about substance abuse, pamphlets on suicide prevention, and a prescription for a new antidepressant called Effexor. It was a double-barreled shotgun of a drug, working on both serotonin and norepinephrine, one of the first of its kind. Like all antidepressants, it came with a warning: DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES WHILE ON THIS MEDICATION. Problem is, I was drinking alcoholic beverages. Often. And the doctor knew it, or at least knew I drank. Sure, I… Read more

10 Things You Need To Know Before Traveling Alone As A Woman

By Patricia Affriol  In Feminism  On Aug 22, 2016

Traveling was always something I fantasized about, but like many people, I was unsure of how to afford it and hesitant to go alone. I went to Morocco during an exchange program, but it wasn't enough to satisfy my thirst, especially as a solo female traveler. There was so much of the world I wanted to see. But after I left school, as I was anxious about the future and feeling the weight of my student debt, I took a job in a field I was not remotely interested in. Yet, after a year of crunching numbers, I took a risk and… Read more
If you’re a woman who exists in the world, you're probably aware of society’s obsession with the “thigh gap.” In case you aren’t, we’re sorry to fill you in: the “thigh gap” is the space that some thin women have between their thighs when they’re standing with their knees together. It’s presented as a highly covetable beauty ideal, especially over the past several years, and it’s heavily featured on pro-eating disorder “thinspiration” blogs. The thigh gap is so harmful that some social media sites, including Instagram,… Read more

John Oliver Has A Solution For How Donald Trump Can Redeem Himself

By Katherine Barner  In TV  On Aug 22, 2016

On Last Week Tonight, Oliver dropped a simple solution for Mr. Donald Trump: Drop out. Beyond the obvious fact that this means we would definitely not have “a racist voodoo doll made of discarded cat hair” (thank you, John Oliver, for that little gem) as our president, Oliver says this is the best way for Trump to make himself an actual legend instead of America's punchline. “It seems that you have two really bad options here," says Oliver. "If you keep going, you’re going to spend the next 11 weeks ramping up hatred… Read more

A Silent Symphony In Times Square

By Katherine Barner  In Music  On Aug 19, 2016

Times Square is one of the most consistently, hectically busy parts of any city in the country. Most New Yorkers avoid this part of the Manhattan like a taxi driver that doesn’t know the difference between a green and red light. This will all change on August 21 and 22, from 11 p.m. - midnight. At this time, an orchestra will be playing in the center of the square. But the naked ear won’t be able to hear the poetic music: the silent orchestra will only be heard by the first 400 people who show up and receive wireless… Read more

We're Freaking Out Over This Googly Eyed Sea Creature!

By Gabrielle Diekhoff  In Entertainment  On Aug 19, 2016

Having a rough day? Because honestly, same. It’s one of those days that I spend publicly venting to no one in particular on Twitter, begging people to send me photos of their dogs or cats or literally anything that is cute, cuddly, and might make me smile for a second. You feel? If so, allow me to present to you this cartoonish, googly-eyed lil’ fella who miraculously managed to up my mood a notch.

This love child of Natalie Portman was raised with careful adoration and grace. Based on the 2002 memoir by Amos Oz of the same name, Portman’s first directed film, which she also wrote and starred in, takes us back to Jerusalem pre-statehood, when Oz was growing up as a boy. The film is told in subtitled Hebrew, but the subtitles alone are not the only reason why the viewer could be glued to the screen. The way Portman tells the story is compelling and breathakingly beautiful from the moment it begins. The story… Read more
Yesterday, the Department of Justice announced its plans to stop outsourcing federal prisons to private prison companies such as Corrections Corporation of America after their current contracts expire. This announcement came on the heels of a damning report by the Department of Justice that confirmed what had already been suspected about the inhumane conditions of private prisons in the U.S. According to a Mother Jones article: “Compared to federal prisons of similar sizes, locations, and security levels, the private… Read more

A Personal History Of Sexual Harassment

By Ly H Kerr  In Feminism  On Aug 19, 2016

I’m just casually scrolling through Facebook when a post gets my attention. I’m not surprised by the post, it’s nothing new. Nonetheless, it makes me feel a tad ragey. My first thoughts run to the sheer entitlement of this man. He wants to do something & no one else’s feelings on the matter count. These thoughts are swiftly followed by exhaustion at constantly having to explain why this is not okay. His dismissal of rape culture as something made up by ‘angry women’ & his total refusal to accept women’s safety concerns… Read more

MAYBE SHE’S BORN WITH IT...MAYBE IT’S CYBERNETICS The field of “bodyhacking” has an unlikely ambassador—a Spanish performance artist named Moon Ribas who is redefining the relationship between technology and humanity If someone were to ask you if you wanted a superpower, you’d probably say yes. In fact, you’ve probably already got one in mind that you think would suit you well: the ability to become invisible, to move things with your mind, to fly, to see the future, to read people’s minds and know what they’re… Read more
No one, especially hopeless romantics like myself, likes to hear news about yet another divorce. It’s especially terrible when the reason fueling the separation is domestic violence or abuse of some kind. To say that such stories are depressing and wholly disheartening would be an understatement. After 15 months of marriage, actress and model Amber Heard recently filed for divorce and a restraining order from her husband Johnny Depp after outing him as an abuser. For months, Heard and Depp’s lawyers have been battling… Read more
Yesterday, some major news was released about the upcoming movie Spider-Man: Homecoming. The Wrap reported that Zendaya will play Spider-Man’s love interest, Mary Jane Watson. Back in March, Marvel announced that Zendaya had joined the film, but didn’t give details about her role. Considering this adaptation focuses on high school versions of Spider-Man and his cohorts, we’re pretty stoked by this casting. At 19, Zendaya is the perfect age for the character, and we love her charisma, acting talent, and the way she… Read more
Claudia Weill’s film Girlfriends was shown as part of the lineup on TCM’s Trailblazing Women series that took place last year. The film was new to me and thought it deserved a write-up because it is the precursor to so many films and female friendships depicted on our screens today, including Nicole Holofcener’s Walking and Talking, Kristen Wiig’sBridesmaids, Frances Ha, and Lena Dunham’s Girls. The plot is by now, familiar. Two best friends are living together, trying to make their way in a tough city like New York.… Read more
Two days before graduating college, I got a job offer for a stellar position in Miami, where I only knew a friend from my hometown. I kept things hush for a while, and only told my grandparents, aunts, and uncles once I had already accepted the position.

They expressed their concerns about my safety, especially related to crime, traffic, and being a woman, and warned me to be alert and smart about my… Read more

Harley Quinn Smith, actress and daughter of Kevin Smith aka Silent Bob, is the latest in a long line of women to be torn down via social media, with a particular focus on her looks.

The Legacy Of Clara Bow, America's First Sex Symbol

By Georgia Clark  In Movies  On Aug 18, 2016

One hundred and eleven years ago, Clara Bow was born into violent poverty in Brooklyn, New York. She would go on to become America’s most loved — and most controversial — sex symbol of the silent film era. Here’s what the troubled young star taught us about slut-shaming, sex ,and public failure: Clara Bow is standing in the front of Paramount studios, reading about how she has sex with dogs. With Mexican croupiers. With married men, with whores, with chauffeurs and with servants. It is 1931 and she has in her hands The… Read more

The Evolution Of Friendship: What Makes It Last?

By Carmella de los Angeles Guiol  In Living  On Aug 18, 2016

I was always the little girl with a million best friends. The word “friend” never felt strong enough to describe our closeness. They were my best friends. Over the years, I’ve watched that number shrink — understandably. There’s no way I could have upheld my long roster of best friends into my adult years; it was simply not sustainable. Between high school drama, faraway college campuses, long-distance phone calls, cross-country moves, personality shifts, marriages, break-ups, career changes, kids — there are bound to… Read more

For half a century, women had been politely agitating for suffrage. Then some fearless young radicals came along who weren’t afraid to make some noise—even if it meant serving prison time. Seven years later, they had won the right to vote It was more than a parade; it was a pageant. On March 13, 1913, thousands of women descended on Washington, D.C. to demand the right to vote. Led by a strikingly beautiful woman clad in a white cape and riding a pure white horse, the parade was spectacular with the colors of… Read more

What’s the deal with yoni eggs and crystal dildos? Are they actually safe to use internally? I also worry about yoni eggs getting stuck, even if they have a string attached. –Chakra ChicaIf Sexologist Carol Queen: If you do a Google search for the phrase “yoni egg,” you’ll find tons of claims about what they’ll do for your pelvic floor and your spirituality.

An 1860 edition of England’s Bedfordshire Mercury reports a “curious scene” from Paris. An attorney was walking his Italian Greyhound on the Boulevard Beaumarchais when he realized that the delicate little dog had strayed. Retracing his steps, he found his pet in the arms of a dog thief. The villain had already removed the dog’s collar and identification tags and was attempting to stifle its cries. The attorney was, according to the article, “a man of great muscular power” and quickly “mastered the delinquent.” Once he… Read more

Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Teaming Up With Disney In This Incredible Way

Subway Masturbator Shut Down In This Epic Way

By Katherine Barner  In Feminism  On Aug 17, 2016

Deanna Carter is our new hero for calling out a New York City subway masturbator. He clearly needs to get a grip on his problems (cue canned laughter). Her incredible badassery was all captured on camera. Carter uploaded the 2-minute video to Facebook on Monday (August 15). The man is seen with a backpack over his lap, and Carter yelling at him. “What are you doing? What are you, over here rubbing your dick? What the fuck are you doing?” She threatened him as he sat staring, quiet and (rightfully) scared. “You wanna… Read more
