Earlier this year, Stasey launched a website called Herself.com, which is a “safe space for women of varying backgrounds, body types and belief systems to amplify their concerns, wishes, dreams, complaints and woes—a platform dedicated to expanding the scope of visible female experience and of visible female bodies.” According the Stasey, “The courageous, luminescent women you will find there are nude, shot by female photographers.

Broad City, like the adjective in its title, is all over the place: It is laugh out loud physical comedy, wry observational humor, and an endearing tale of lady friendship all in one.
Creators and Stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are seriously killing it as the hottest duo on television these days (yep, we said it and we meant it!).
Lucky for us (and you, dear reader!), they are also the funny, fearsome cover ladies on our February/March 2015 issue. Read More

How apt that this blog-slash-zine is titled “Got a Girl Crush,” since we certainly have a crush on it. Got a Girl Crush began in 2009 as the brainchild of friends Meg and Andrea, who we got to talk to about the project. In 2011, the first print issue of Got a Girl Crush dropped, and it was chock full of photos, interviews, and inspiration from ladies “doing amazing things in [their] own backyards.”
The idea of Got a Girl Crush is to showcase empowered women who do cool things on the daily. Read More
