  Gloria Steinem's Golden Bra Award acceptance speech was one of the highlights of our 20th Anniversary Extravaganza. (Let's be real--it was fan-fucking-tastic.) Luckily, artist Gail Ahlers captured this magical moment on camera...and we're so excited to share it with you! The video also includes some nifty behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the Golden Bra statuette. Can you believe it started off as a goofy sketch in the BUST conference ... Read More
Whew! We had quite a time this past Thursday at the 20th birthday celebration of BUST. There were loads of amazing ladies and dudes who rolled out to help us get down and have a good ol' time. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we ate cupcakes. It was an incredible, unforgettable experience (for at least this BUSTie) and it reminded us of how much BUST changed our lives and why we love it so, so much. (Sorry for the cheese, but it was kind of a big deal.) We're ... Read More
It was reported today that beloved co-founder of Ms. magazine passed away after a collision with a car on Friday. The car hit Thom who was riding her Honda Magna motorcycle on Saw Mill River Parkway in Yonkers.

The interview took place at the DVF Awards, a ceremony that honors women who have "leadership, strength, and courage in their respective fields." Steinem said she believes the world is very different from when she first started fighting for women’s rights. She also said she is pleased the younger generation is “stepping up like never ...

I’m not going to lie. When Rihanna took Chris Brown back I was not happy. In fact, I bordered on morally outraged. How could the girl who had me fantasizing about singing, "Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world" to the boy who was breaking my heart be so…stoopid? How could the star that millions of young girls idolize set such a bad example as to take a man who has abused her back? Easy. Rihanna is human, young, and (somehow) in ... Read More
{SPONSORED POST} March is Women’s History Month. That women have a month at all is somewhat disheartening—implying, as it does, that the other 12 belong to men. It can often feel as if (to paraphrase the great philosopher Paula Abdul) for every two steps forward, we take two steps back. But we’ve come a long way. One hundred years ago, women were fighting for suffrage. Today, we’re debating the intricacies of Sheryl Sandberg’s manifesto. Still, ... Read More
I know, I know. We’re a little more than obsessed with PBS’ kickass project “Makers: The Women Who Make America.” But can you blame us? It’s all about strong, confident women who have fought hard for what they believe in and changed America forever. Lucky for us, 92Y, a nonprofit community organization in NYC, is hosting a discussion panel featuring some of your favorite feminists this Tuesday, March 5th, at Kaufmann Concert ... Read More
February 26th is going to be a whole lot of feminist fun. At 8:00 P.M Eastern Standard Time PBS will be debuting the documentary “MAKERS: Women Who Make America.” The film will profile ass-kicking female trailblazers and show how women have taken increasingly prominent roles in political, economic, and social arenas. And how better to introduce a documentary on social revolution than with an interview with Gloria Steinem, the patron saint of American ... Read More
