One of the biggest problems of the gender pay gap is myths and attitudes that uphold the broken system. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is just another male in the corporate world contributing to this problem by telling women at a conference to just "trust the system." Earlier this month, at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference in Phoenix, Nadella found himself quickly putting his foot in his mouth.
The question posed from the audience was, "What do you advise women who are interested in advancing their careers, but not comfortable ... Read More

I think the first time I really played with coding was on Neopets. I was about 12 years old and I didn’t know it was called “code” - just that it was HTML and it made the wallpapers of my personal pages look sweet as hell. Then I moved on to bigger and better things (aka wasting my life away on Facebook) and forgot all about my days of messing around with the cool layout of the internet.
When I first heard about Girls Who Code, I was totally impressed by how involved girls were getting in the tech world and all of the amazingly intense stuff they were turning out. Read More

Someone has finally developed an app (similar to Grindr and Tinder) that focuses solely on girls loving girls. (Finally!) Dattch is a new app in the market that is directed towards lesbian and bisexual women.
Built by women for women, it’s designed to surpass any of the experiences that women have on other dating apps. Dattch founder and CEO, Robyn Exton says that "You can’t just take Grindr and make it pink and give it to women and say 'Ta da!' It’s a completely different experience and product—and I think no one seems to have taken the time to do it yet." Very true. Read More

Long live the 90's craze! To complement that $60 flannel shirt you just bought from Urban Outfitters, why not dig even deeper into the age of Nirvana and scrunchies with the Tamagotchi App?!
You heard me right, people. Now you can care for your totally useless, pixilated virtual pets on your mobile device of choice. Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. (Love is fun everywhere, duh!) allows you to select from two modes: old school, and a newfangled, fancy-pants mode. Whoever would choose the latter just needs to stop.
I, for one, could not be more excited about this new development. Read More

Claire Meyer and Alan Linic have been dating for eight-ish months. Like any couple, their relationships has its ups and downs. Unlike any couple, every "fight," from minor spat to all-out war, is documented on their Twitter account: We Fought About. The updates come roughly every other day, with a general balance between the aggressor and the offended. According to an interview with The Cut, no fight goes undocumented, regardless of content or severity. Read More

If you haven't heard of Tinder, a "dating" app for the iPhone, you are probably lying and swiping through your matches right now. It seems like everyone and their grandma (literally...Hi Rhonda, 64) is a part of this bizarre craze. And until recently, I had vowed to be a part of the 1% (mostly just consisting of the Amish) who abstained from checking out dudes on my iPhone.
It wasn't the prospect of "virtual" dating that spooked me. Read More
