  Frequent BUST contributor and all around badass lady Mish Way proved once and for all that she is not one for taking sexist hecklers lightly. The White Lung singer and her band played a Red Bull Sound Select show at Palisades, a Brooklyn club, last night along with Power Trip and Sick Feeling. After a few minutes of the first song, some balding bro in the front decided to start, as Way claims on her Twitter account, calling her a cunt and flipping her the ... Read More
Yesterday, VoteRunLead announced the launch of their ambitious plan to get 50,000 women to run for political office by election day and 500,000 (yes half a million!) by 2016. The national nonpartisan organization will use its website as a platform and resource for women as they share the plan with friends, family, and anyone else they wish to nominate to run for office. This first step is called "Invitation Nation" and its success depends on people using the site ... Read More
Girls Who Code is at it again! High school students Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser, two friends who met at the educational computer science program Girls Who Code, created the new video game Tampon Run as their final project, and it's as great as it sounds. (Don't worry, the game is not about sending your dad out during your period and crossing your fingers he buys the right brand.)  Never has a video game so aptly tackled the social stigma ...

Originally affecting change through their radical music performances while donning colorful ski masks, Pussy Riot’s next move to reform Russia is perhaps even bolder. Two of the original three members, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, are launching an independent news outlet, MediaZona. The focus of the project is to keep Russian citizens informed about the conditions of Russian prisons and courts, an issue these fearless females know all too ... Read More
There’s no question that Nicki Minaj is a queen in her own right. She inspires millions, being one of a small number of female rappers who made the big time. In many of her songs and videos, she’s fierce, confident and quite literally annihilating the male gaze (like in the video for her single “Lookin’ Ass”). All that being said, it’s hard to deny that Nicki Minaj embraces some form of feminism. But is her brand of ... Read More
An incredibly brave young woman at Columbia University is making a bold declaration against her rapist, her school and anyone who stands in the way of justice for herself and women across the nation. Emma Sulkowicz faced what, unfortunately, many female students fear today: she was raped in her dorm room on her first day of her sophomore year of college, and as if that weren’t appalling enough, her school’s administration failed to seek rightful ...

After moving from Honolulu, Hawai‘i to New York City, I’m gonna generalize here when I say that many Americans from the continental United States have little to no idea about Hawaiian history or about any notable Hawaiian people, much less Hawaiian women, throughout history (other than of course Lilo from Lilo and Stitch…but I mean…she’s 2D…and has an alien for a pet…). And while it’s sweet that many people are ... Read More
  Aliaa Magda Elmahdy is only 23 years old and already she’s making headlines. An Egyptian feminist and internet activist, Elmahdy has amassed a substantial following on Twitter and Facebook, and has had no trouble making waves online and in the streets with her protests against the oppression of women in the Middle East. Her latest stunt, however, is by far the most shocking.   Elmahdy recently posted a photo on her blog of herself and another ... Read More
  This week, did the Emmys put women on a pedestal, or did they knock them off of it?   Thanks to Queen Bey’s VMA performance this past Sunday, feminism is the f-word on everyone’s lips. A word that normally warrants skeptical and dismissive looks, Beyoncé and other celebrities are making it “trendy” through efforts to mainstream it. With that taste still fresh in our mouths, Sofia Vergara being displayed on a rotating ... Read More
