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

Gabrielle Union designed a Planned Parenthood Action Fund t-shirt to encourage women to vote in the midterm elections on Nov. 4. Many states are battling their local politicians who are attempting to put restrictions on women’s health.
Union’s shirt is the second shirt designed by a celebrity, the first by Scarlett Johansson, in order to show what is at risk in the upcoming election. Upcoming celebrity t-shirt designers include Orange is the New Black stars Natasha Lyonne and Selenis Leyva. Union's shirt showcases a key issue being battled, access to birth control. Read More

I’m a big fan of Cafepress, a website where you can buy knick knacks and memorabilia with slogans, images, and sayings, many of which are quite original.

That’s why I’m super thrilled to have recently been introduced to Redbubble, which has amazing, high-quality merchandise that both makes me nod my head in agreement or giggle to myself for days.

Whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, somewhere in the middle, or just someone who likes to poke fun at politics, Fab's collection of political items seems to have something for everyone.
Two of the items are Romney and Obama candy dispensers, cleverly named Political Poopers. If you have a dog, you can buy eco-friendly biodegradable poop bags to show your preference or “smear the rival” (eww). There’s also a cool tote bag with a graphic of Obama with an afro. Read More

It's probably best for my bank account that I can't go to the LA Craftacular on Saturday -- one BUST shopping extravaganza was hard enough on my wallet. But if I could go, and had lots of cash with me, I'd definitely hit up the I Heart Guts table. I'll admit it -- when Craftacular guru Susan said 'You gotta check out this lady's plush uterus,' I was more than a little skeptical. But surprise! These guts are adorable, and I heart them, too.
