Women have been contributing to military efforts since the military was a thing. During the Revolutionary War women cut off their hair, bound their breasts and joined in the fight - always with the fear of being found out. In Civil War they would enlist under male names; some would transport messages and battle plans in hollowed-out turnips. There are currently 1,853,690 female veterans out in the world. With that historical background of women kicking ass, you'd think there would be parades for them on Veterans' Day. Read More

Surprises come in all sizes—some as small as a box full of archived negatives, recounting a female sub-culture in London that was almost forgotten. Meet Ken Russell, who originally wanted to be a ballerina but turned to another kind of art when his father squashed his dream—photography. The freelance photographer-turned-film director soon became known for breaking the rules in his craft, producing some of post-war London's most expressive work. Read More
Punxsutawney Phil, the asshole he is, told us this week that we're going to be enduring six more weeks of winter. Great, you think, as you empty the slush that somehow made its way inside your boots. If only we could all just crawl back into the ground and sleep for a month and a half. Groundhog jerk. So yes, you're stuck in your winter wardrobe for what looks like the foreseeable future.
