Janine Harper and her photographer husband Marc Bushelle were among some of the people who stumbled upon Not Just a Girl after it went viral on the girl-wide-web. The photos inspired the two to create their own series—one that brings to light the historical black women our textbooks tend to forget. Moore's daughter as ... Read More
It doesn’t get much more adorable than Ellie Kemper as Kimmy Schmidt in Tina Fey’s new Netflix series, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. From her bright flowery outfits to her relentlessly upbeat attitude, Kimmy never fails to lift our spirits and remind us that everything will be okay if we just stay true to ourselves. And while in true-to-form sitcom fashion, the show has no shortage of silly (and amazingly weird) jokes, it also has a ton of heart. ... Read More

  As a white,wealthy land and slave owner who played a large part in ruining the lives of thousands of American Indians during his presidency, why is Andrew Jackson still on our twenty-dollar bill?  We wish we had an answer for you that wasn't simply “patriarchal tradition,” but unfortunately we don't. On the bright side, though, it seems like things might be looking up, thanks to one smart lady: Barbara Oritz Howard, a previous canvasser for ... Read More
It’s hard not to imagine Mindy Kaling as anything other than her “delusionally confident, unapologetically selfish” character of Mindy Lahiri in “The Mindy Project." But at 19 she was just a lowly intern on Late Night with Conan O’Brien—although she says she was "less of a 'make copies' intern and more of a 'stalk Conan' intern." Okay, so that’s totally believable; but she’s come a long way from stalking Conan ... Read More
