As if “The Scream” wasn’t incentive enough to head to The Museum of Modern Art, Tilda Swinton will be hanging out in a glass box periodically throughout the rest of 2013 as part of her piece “The Maybe.” Swinton previously performed this piece at London's Serpentine Gallery and at a museum in Rome. Maybe it will be cool? According to museum sources, the Oscar-winning actress does not have a schedule of her appearances, and no one on staff knows exactly when she will spend her days in the box, or where the box will be located within the museum.

Lily Tomlin has been a feminist longer than I’ve been alive, so when she says things have changed for women in terms of comedy, character acting, and raising girls to be feminist, I believe her.  While talking to Vanity Fair, Tomlin commented on Girls, Tina Fey, and shifts in feminism.

Nowadays, she’s not laughing as much when she sees what’s happening on television. Read More

What’s up with the secrecy, B? According to Newsday, Beyonce dropped her new song “Bow Down/I Been On” without any pre-release press or even a friendly head’s up. Which actually seems to fit as this new release is anything but “friendly.” We’ve got hardcore mixing, lots of cursing, rap, and some crazy synth-sound manipulation, coupled with lyrics like, “I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world. Don’t forget it. Respect that. Read More
Sheryl Sandberg doesn’t want to be a role model; but as a woman who is naturally brilliant, self-confident, well-educated, perpetually organized, newly published, and seemingly always in the right place at the right time, Sheryl Sandberg just can’t avoid it.          You all might know her story, but it’s worth hearing again. After graduating from Harvard where she earned her first degree in economics, Sandberg did a stint at the World Bank. She then obtained her second Harvard diploma, this time a M.B.A. Read More
On March 3rd, the Human Resources Administration, with the backing of NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s office, released new public service announcements aimed at “hard-hitting facts about the money and time costs of parenting, and the negative consequences of having a child before you are ready.” What the ads did instead was set off a firestorm of media attention about how the messages are full of racial profiling, negativity and shaming.
