  LOL: Comedienne Margaret Cho and American rapper/DJ Princess Superstar have paired up for this awesome video celebrating the efficiency of their butts rather than focusing on their sizes. With all the attention on girls’ butts these days, the hilarious ladies decided to create a music video/skit to point out how truly ridiculous it is to obsess over booties the way our current culture does.    “If I can’t have a big butt than I can least have—a big colon!” they say in the video.

Feminist activists, Pankhuri Awasthi and Uppekha Jain, just performed an important rap against rape culture in India. On their YouTube page, they describe India as “a nation that is 1,000 shades of fabulous and yet there’s still 999 issues that hold us back.” The duo, who call themselves BomBaebs, speak out against India’s current antiquated mindset that accepts and condones rape and misogyny in their powerful video.

  The God’s Themselves have answered all our prayers with a cover of Ginuwine's “Pony," and it is... there are no words.

We are just going to leave this right here.  THE GODS THEMSELVES - Pony from The Gods Themselves on Vimeo. Read More
Katy Goodman premiered on the indie music scene with her band Vivian Girls in 2007, and before long we were listening to her from our dorm room radios and relying on her for all our angsty-feminist-dream core desires.

Her music is wonderfully poppy and elegant, while also comfortably dark and stormy. Since Vivian Girls, Katy has made musical magic with some really cool people (including Cat Power's bassist, Gregg Foreman). Read More
To be blunt, we aren't big fans of Meghan Trainor around these parts: Her over-produced bubblegum pop tunes are catchy at best, and there are way better artists to listen to within that genre. But we'll admit we were initially happy when "All About That Bass" hit the sound waves: It seemed body positive and hopeful—and that's the kind of message we can get behind.That was before taking a closer look at the lyrics though. Sing it out about sassy curves girl, but why bring a dose of skinny shaming into it? That song left a sour taste in our mouths. Read More
