  Ever since the publication of ‘Skinny Bitch’, it seems to me like this crazy new fad diet called ‘veganism’ has been popping up all over the mainstream media,* from strip clubs to punk rock cooking shows to the exploding going green movement to America's Sweetheart Oprah to even (cue suspenseful music) feminism! With all the good press veganism has gotten lately, much of the bad press is fading into the background, such as veganism ... Read More
So two weeks ago, I received my Diva Cup in the mail, just in time for my monthly visit from 'Goddess Moon'. What timing! What an omen! The Diva Cup is one version of a 'menstrual productsolution' idea around since the 1930's. What the Diva Cup, The Keeper, the Moon Cup, etc. all basically are little  plastic 'cups' that you pretty much just shove up on in your nether region, kind of like a tampon to 'catch' all the gross. The only tricky part is that you have ... Read More

Call of the Wild

BY debbie in Feminizzle

"Yeah, it's objectifying and all, but you know, if I walked down the street and didn't have men looking me up and down and catcalling, I'd think, 'Boy I must really be getting old and dumpy'."So says 31 year old (and dumpy?) Jessica, on CNN.com's story posted today about catcalling. But even though she's the only one quoted who seemed to enjoy that kind of crap, the headline on the CNN.com story teases, "Hey baby! That catcalling is ... Read More

At Your Cervix

BY Dawn in Feminizzle

The documentary At Your Cervix explores the connection between the way medical and nursing students are taught pelvic exams and the reality that most women experience them as painful and disempowering. At Your Cervix breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical and nursing schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anaesthetized women. At the same time, the film highlights the ... Read More

Walk this way

BY Laurie in Feminizzle

Well hot damn, it’s about time! From years of carrying Band-Aids in my purse, spending ridiculous amounts of money on pedicures and trying to come up with the perfect remedy to heal gnarly bunions and blisters, men will (for one day) grasp the reasoning behind all of my bitching. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is an organization that will literally make men walk a mile, in heels, to protest sexualized violence against women. The walk educates the public and raises ... Read More
