Hearing Sarah Palin talk about why women can be anti-choice feminists has been pretty terrifying. Her message, that women can and should be expected to be have children they don't actually want, is totes ridic. But her supporting argument, suggesting that it's anti-feminist to accuse women of being unable to handle this load, is a bit trickier. Answering is like trying to respond to the "when did you stop beating your wife" question. Meanwhile, daughter Bristol ... Read More
Women make up the majority of the workforce these days, and have even been breaking into the boys clubs, also known as politics and comedy. Olivia Munn and (gasp!) Elena Kagan have proven to be the ladies of the week who combined both politics and comedy.

This new Old Spice ad cannot be ignored any longer. Besides being hilarious, ridiculous, and featuring the eye-candy that is Isaiah Mustafa, there seems to be a change in tone for the better in terms of gender. Personally, I think it's more sensitive to gender roles, but still keeping with the sensitive manly-man ideal. We know that Old Spice is going for the ridiculous— "Swan dive!"... genius— and our favorite Old Spice Man gracefully lands in a hot ... Read More

In the news, she is said to have bonded with groups of women by revealing how hard it was to be pregnant at forty. She says that she “drove to another state to buy a pregnancy test” and “waited in a lonely, hotel ... Read More
Over the past five years, doctor’s have made many breakthroughs in the battle to preserve and prolong women’s fertility.   And while I think we’re all familiar with invitro at this point, you may not know much about ovarian transplantation.  The first successful ovarian tissue transplant was performed back in 2004 between two sisters.

Forbes Magazine has just released its annual list of “The 100 Most Powerful Celebrities” and it appears the past year was particularly good for Hollywood’s most talented and versatile ladies.  Raking in a ridiculous $315 million from her media empire, the one and only Oprah Winfrey kicked Angelina Jolie out of the No. 1 spot to reclaim her throne.    She’s followed by Beyonce at No. 2 who earned $87 million largely due to her ...
