Barnard College’s Athena Center for Leadership Studies is celebrating women in film, both behind and in front of the camera.

Our beloved Patsy and Edina are back with a new episode of Absolutely Fabulous to air on BBC America on January 8th! We've been hearing of the reunion for quite some time and are THRILLED  with the news. Since originally airing 20 years ago (really? has it been that long?) Ab Fab, the brilliant British sitcom created by Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French, has yet to have  been knocked off its pedestal of comedic genius. Not since maybe Lucy and Ethel were ... Read More
Kyrgyzstan is a small landlocked country bordering China where traditions run deep. Vice News presents one of this country’s oldest and most disturbing traditions in "Bride Kidnapping In Kyrgyzstan." Thomas Morton introduces this ancient custom, which has had a resurgence since the fall of Communism. Although the practice is technically illegal, almost half the rural marriages in Kyrgyzstan are a result of bride kidnapping. For their film, Vice traveled to ... Read More
Fred Armisen of SNL (and virtually every indie comedy film or TV show of the last 10 years) will be doing NYC in-store appearances on December 4th and 5th to promote the release of Portlandia: Season One on DVD and Blu-Ray. The stellar IFC comedy series, which stars Fred and Sleater Kinney's Carrie Brownstein, will be out in stores on December 6. We're obsessed with Portlandia (which lovingly skewers Portland, Oregon) and its recurring characters, like the ... Read More
I never get tired of John Roberts! His fans know him from his Mom character on Youtube (the "star" of 2006's amazing "Look at the tree!" video), as well as the obnoxious teen Debra (from the "Jackie and Debra" video), and the voice of delightfully abrasive Linda Belcher on Bob's Burgers. This guy is so good, if he was on Saturday Night Live, I'd go back to watching it. Here's his latest creation, "Bald with a Blue Tooth." Prepare to be seduced. Bald With A ... Read More
  You may have guessed from the title that Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys revolves around straight women and their gay best friends. Last season took place in NYC, while this one centers on the unlikely location of Nashville, Tennessee. The show is forged from the "Karen and Jack" dynamic, shining a light on the relationships between straight women and their gay BFFs.  Setting a reality show about gay men’s relationships in the Bible Belt ...

Director Darren Aronofsky is known for scaring the crap out of people on the big screen with Black Swan and Requiem For a Dream, but now he’s back doing the same thing on the small screen. Four years ago, the Montana Meth Project hired the auteur to direct a few PSAs that give a very scary and very real look at the effects of meth. Now Aronofsky is back with a few more videos aimed at keeping teens away from the drug. Though these videos may be aimed at ... Read More
  The documentary I've been dying to see since I first saw the trailer is finally premiering on TV tonight!  Do not miss Miss Representation by Jennifer Siebel Newsom; it's sure to be a powerful film about modern women's depictions in the media.   This is not just a film, it's the catalyst to a growing movement and a call to challenge the media.  They've launched numerous social change campaigns already including, Represent Us, where anyone can ...

OMG, She's Such a Lady Bastard!

I'm really loving the new TV Series, "Up All Night." I think it sort of has the potential to be kind of a 30 Rock, but about parenting. The show has a fantastic cast: Christina Applegate, demonstrating her great comedic abilities; Mr. Amy Poehler, Will Arnett; and our beloved Maya Rudolph as a sort of cross between Oprah and Tracy Jordan. And the fact that the show is written by a woman doesn't hurt, either. To get a sense of her character's nuttiness, check out ... Read More
Most people who indulge in shows like The Bachelor and Jersey Shore don't take them seriously. In fact, most people I know who watch reality TV, watch it  almost sadistically, as they are enjoying the act of hating it. New Research from the Girl Scout Institute is proving that these popular TV shows may have more of an effect than we may think. The study took middle school and high school aged girls and asked reality tv viewers and non viewers questions ... Read More
