Jessica Williams has a gift when it comes to appealing to the everyday feminist. Her segment from last Thursday's episode of The Daily Show highlights the issue of catcalling and street harassment. Showing how completely ordinary harassment is, Williams brings a camera along on her way to work. She gets catcalled by construction workers and a security guard. Just like Williams, getting the horny clap of approval from any guy does not improve my day, it actually ... Read More
Kirsten Dunst — whether you love her for her first kiss with Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire, or because she was the true hero of Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind — is breaking new ground with her social commentary of the selfie.

Chanel debuted their Spring/Summer 2015 collection on a fake Parisian boulevard within Grand Palais in Paris. The show’s clothing had a 1970s vibe with the tweed pantsuits and bright colorful blouses. It could have been a nod to the feminist movement in the seventies, since Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, ended the show with a feminist protest. Normally, I would be happy that feminism has reached a new audience but I don’t think the message was ... Read More

This interview from 1982 with Eartha Kitt, is so amazing, I had to watch it three times! Kitt, best know for her hit song Santa Baby and her role as Cat Woman on the 1960s TV version of Batman, always spoke her mind (sometimes to the detriment to her career), and once made first wife Lady Bird Johnson cry at a White House luncheon when she spoke out about the Vietnam War: "You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and ... Read More

For six years straight I've been dying my hair unnatural colors.During this time I've written a two different guides to unnatural hair colors and within months each has felt a bit outdated for one reason or another. My most recent set of posts on the subject was published back in 2011. In all honesty, to me, those three posts feel rushed. I've decided to rewrite my hair series a little differently, with more photos, and with more information. First I'm going to ... Read More
