The BUST blog has kept you abreast of many of the appalling attacks on reproductive rights in the United States, most recently through the story of the two Michigan state representatives who were banned from speaking on the House floor for using the words “vagina” and “vasectomy” in a debate over abortion-related legislation. In a rather awesome turn of events, Eve Ensler (AKA the woman who made it ‘cool’ to talk about vaginas ... Read More
Today might mark the summer solstice, but for presumptive Republican Party nominee Mitt Romney, the date might borrow from a different holiday, Halloween, more than is usual for summertime campaign stops. That is to say that Romney should be planning for the predicted appearance of  Pillamina, Planned Parenthood's costumed avenger, at his Troy, Michigan, fundraiser tonight. According to the Planned Parenthood blog, Pillamina is making her ‘triumphant ... Read More
For me and many other creative people I know, crafting has always been a solitary and selfish endeavor. Between the month during 7th grade that I holed myself up in my room every evening to work on a latch-hooked Winnie the Pooh pillow and the hours I currently spend in quirky vintage boutiques looking for trinkets to deconstruct into novelty earrings, I’m embarrassed to admit that most of what I make falls into the ‘look, don’t touch’ (or ...

Ever since cinema-going first became a popular pastime in the early 20th century, films have given their viewers a way to escape from the banalities and tribulations of everyday life. But, as our everyday lives move further and further away from reality (hello, makeover TV shows, social networking, and airbrushed everything), it’s often refreshing to see a movie that speaks to the real-life struggles and experiences of women in this very moment. Enter ... Read More
While you might see a night at the bar as a chance to catch up with friends after work, sample a new craft beer, or to meet potential bedroom partners, the ladies who founded the Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers (CLAW) used a rowdy night out as the basis for what has become a national phenomenon. After a series of friendly-but-intense bar room arm wrestling matches, friends and co-founders Jennifer Hoyt Tidwell and Jodie Plaisance decided to start working out ... Read More
Whether you’re decorating your first teeny-weeny-itsy-bitsy studio or trying to re-vamp the house you’ve been in for decades, there’s nothing worse than having a friend (or worse, the exterminator guy) come into your spruced-up pad only to say “Oh, I have that [insert painting/vase/dinette set/other item from Ikea/Target/Crate and Barrel here] at my house too!” But that sort of awkward and mildly ego-crushing experience is inevitable ...

We here at BUST just received word that Lambeth Women’s Project, a U.K. organization that provides dozens of services to over one thousand women each year, is facing “unreasonable eviction” from the space they have occupied in south London since 1979. The 11 groups under LWP offer services including counseling, domestic violence support and sexual health screenings under a model that was designed to “promote diversity” and to ... Read More
Whether you define the start of summer as the moment it’s finally warm enough to break out your favorite short-shorts (sans tights, of course), the void between the beautiful ending of one school year and the dreaded beginning of another, or the first weekend you and your girls can head to your favorite beach, it’s finally here for many of us, in all of its mercurially sunny splendor (And if you’re one of those sticklers who believes that summer ...
