The books we read as children can have a huge impact on the weird humans we eventually become. Our beliefs, aspirations, and morals can all be attributed to the colorful pages we excitedly soaked in during our youth. So, whether you're buying a book for a friend's child, your own child, or for yourself (because why not? We would), make it a piece of literature that sustains and empowers women. Because, well, those little messages go a long way.
Here are 12 ... Read More

Our favorite female crime-fighters are coming back to Cartoon Network in 2016, and we couldn’t be more excited. The Powerpuff Girls made being strong and sassy cool, and we can’t wait to have more sugar, spice, everything nice—and of course, a dash of chemical X—on the air again.
These heroines kicked ass from 1998 to 2005, winning two Emmy awards and several animation awards along the way, and now they are revamping the show, taking on ... Read More

We all have those girls we're especially tight with. They're the ones we can always rely on to be there, to be honest and fair.
That heartwarming motif is what I thought director Celine Sciamma ( Water Lillies, Tomboy ) would cast a fresh, new light upon in her french film Girlhood. To my disappointment that was not the case: Mareme ( actress Karidja Touré ) feels suffocated by her family setting, her lackluster grades, and the boys club ... Read More

Science has spoken, and your adolescent tastes have been affirmed — the Spice Girls' “Wannabe” is the catchiest song in the UK. “Wannabe,” released in 1996 on the album Spice, was quickly the best selling single by a female group.
The experiment was conducted by Hooked On Music, a research campaign with the Manchester Science Festival and the University of Amsterdam. Lou Bega’s “Mambo Number ... Read More

Music is a very male-dominated industry, and when women do rise to prominence they are often pitted against and compared to each other, despite the fact that each queen is a unique snowflake and should be treated as such.
But once in a blue moon, all the stars align and three or more female powerhouses collaborate to create a club-banger that reminds the boys that these divas are not only fierce, but borderline superhuman when they work together. You better work, ... Read More

Zoe Saldana was recently a guest on Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen, when a viewer called in and asked (in a very judgmental tone I might add), what Zoe thought of Britney Spear’s show in Vegas, and if she heard her song that was recently released without autotune (which I will not link to because that is irrelevant). And Zoey handled it like the ultimate sweetie-pie homegirl we know she is.
If you don’t remember, Zoe, Britney and Taryn ... Read More

I was always confused about my limited choices as a kid. Growing up with boy cousins, I remember wondering why I always had to be the pink Power Ranger, or the human girl from Ninja Turtles when we played with action figures.

Where are the ... Read More
