I’m not exaggerating when I say that Kate Leth is everything I want to be. I’m not the only one who sees her this way, tons of little girls (and boys too!) are calling her a hero after the release of her latest graphic novel, Adventure Time: Seeing Red.  I’ve been following Kate Leth since I first discovered her web comic, Kate or Die! Since then, I’ve watched her blossom into an ass-kicking, feminist comic book artist who's finally getting some well-deserved public attention.

I never thought I would feel empathy for a blow-up sex doll, but I was mistaken. In a new short film directed and written by Olivia Saperstein, we follow the tragic story of a plastic lady —from her emerging from a mail order box to a guy's taking shots out of her dainty plastic vagina. The doll's perspective shows us all the gritty and slimy moments of an out of control party. You know, the parts of the party you hope you don’t remember in the morning. Plastic is short but — no, not sweet. More… sour, but in a delicious kind of way. Read More
Being a Pagan in 2014 is weird. I can’t imagine where I’d be without the fantastic witchy bloggers I follow or the Etsy accounts that keep me in stock with my spells and crystals.  I won’t lie, I’m new to being a witch – but part of what I love about Paganism and Wicca is the rich history behind these beliefs.  Recently, LIFE Magazine re-published what they've called a “strikingly weird feature” about British Pagans in 1964.

We all know that the women are still battling for our rights, whether it is over our reproductive rights or equal pay. It seems like we have so far to go before we break that glass ceiling; sometimes it can get a little overwhelming. That’s why we like to look back on what we have already accomplished to inspire us and keep us on track. If you’re really looking for some sad stats from women’s history, lets look at 1970s Ireland. Just under 50 years ago in Ireland things looked a lot different, as pointed out by this article in the Irish Central. Read More
When you first hear “Sofia Coppola” and “The Little Mermaid” in the same sentence, you don’t immediately think perfect match. So when it was announced earlier this month that the acclaimed director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) would be taking on the live action version of the Disney classic, the news was met with mixed feelings.  However, once you understand the true, dark, mystery of Hans Christian Anderson’s original fairy tale you’ll see that Coppola is the only lady who could do this story justice.

If you’ve spent much time in New York City, you’ve likely been to (or been sent to by cool professors in your first semester at college, like me) St. Mark’s Bookshop. Likely to be called “magical” or “radiant” by your average bibliophile, St. Mark’s bookshop is an independent bookstore that specializes in Cultural Theory, Graphic Design, Poetry & Small Press Publishing, Film Studies, and Foreign & Domestic Periodicals and Journals.

For those of you who haven’t been following one of the largest military sexual abuse cases in recent years, here’s the low-down: General Jeffrey Sinclair seems like a real skeezeball. Maybe you wouldn’t see the General as such a gross guy at first glance. Before this scandal broke, he was perceived as a strong leader among his armed forces peers – despite making several (documented!) unwanted advances towards women. Read More
In the midst of a national debate about birth control coverage and employee health care plans, women’s group UltraViolet has turned to one sure-fire solution to rock the vote: puppets.  The Supreme Court will hear final arguments for the controversial case of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores next week – after which they'll decide whether or not the corporation may maintain their practice of restricting employee health coverage to "morally fit" procedures. Read More
