On Tuesday September 17th, TIME named Nancy Gibbs its new managing editor, as The New York Times reports. Gibbs is the first woman to be given this position in the magazine’s 90-year history. Can we all just revel in this glory, with a big YAY FOR LADIES IN PRINT MEDIA! Gibbs started as a TIME fact-checker 28 years ago, and over the course of working for the mag, she’s written more cover stories (ahem, 174 to be exact) than any other writer in TIME history.

Reported by the Los Angeles Times, a new group of Latina bicyclists are now riding the streets of LA with a mission. In light of Hispanic Heritage Month, and the fact that I am a failed Latina bicyclist, I took this article to heart. The nine-member female group, also known as the Ovarian Psyco Cycles Brigade, uses “feminine positive” slogans and bike with a political purpose. Their group’s playful name intends to create “acknowledgement/acceptance/pride in one’s historically oppressed body,” as the Times says. Read More
Jennifer Sky is most famously known as the red-headed, kick-ass warrior princess Amarice on the hit 90s show Xena: Warrior Princess. But before she became an actress on the cult show, she took a stab at a modeling career. In a recent New York Times Op-Ed piece, Sky says the fashion industry is anything but a dream. As Sky starts out her op-ed, her memory ignites with stories of all the fashionable youngins hurrying to catch the subway in order to be on time for their next show. This was the last remotely nostalgia-worthy note of her time in the modeling world. Read More
As I watched writer/director Kat Coiro’s romantic drama, And While We Were Here, I felt like I was swept away into experiencing love for the first time. And to top it all off, the film is set in Italy, where scenic shots of the coast made me fall even more in love. The film is completely immersed in Italian culture; it will cut from Italian families loudly arguing to shots of Vespas lining sidewalks. The soundtrack comforts you, as if you were sitting in a gondola, witnessing every inch of beauty this country has to offer. Read More
Well, wouldja look at that, Abercrombie & Fitch is under siege once again. In A&F’s latest news, a young Muslim woman filed an anti-discrimination suit against the company because she was unable to wear a hijab to work. Jeez, this company needs to get its act together. In 2010, 18-year-old Hani Khan was fired from the San Mateo, CA, Hollister store. Four months into her job, Khan’s manager expressed concern for her head scarf. Khan refused to remove it. In light of this, Khan was terminated from her job. Read More
We recently reported that Yoko Ono is still dominating the art/music scene, and this new collaboration of hers is the cherry on top of the sundae. As announced on Wu-Tang Clan’s website, Yoko Ono and RZA will be pairing up for a special 10-inch vinyl release. For this release, all the proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Literary Society, a non-profit New York-based organization that provides studies in literature to children.  The vinyl release will include live recordings of the songs “Seed of Joy/Life Is a Struggle.

The Parisian skincare line, Ella Baché, is receiving some Australian backlash for their latest advertisement. The advertisement that’s getting lots of buzz is of a few female nude models that have serious expressions on their faces. The picture is accompanied with the phrase, “Skin Solutions As Individual As You Are”. Apparently, the Australian advertising self-regulator agency, Outdoor Media Association, thought that the lack of smiles from the models gave off “sexual overtones". The ad was to be featured on a 6x3m billboard in all major cities. Read More
AHHHH I’M LIZZING! This is probably the greatest lady news I’ve received all day! The truly special, talented, and hilariously wonderful Tina Fey will be returning home to NBC by hosting Saturday Night Live’s 39th Season Premiere. This will be…wait for it…Tina’s FOURTH time hosting the show she got her start from. On September 28th, Arcade Fire will also join Tina, as SNL’s musical guest. Read More
Ah, I wish summer wasn’t over because Tangerine’s "Feel This Way" would’ve been my summer jam! It’s soft, relaxed, and makes me feel that every moment should be cherished. It’s a song that you could play at a party, or even put on a “chill-out/study” playlist (as a former college student, this was the biggest challenge of my life). With dream-like shots of friends sitting in a park drinking sangria, to a crowd dancing to Tangerine playing, this song and video will make you feel at ease. Read More
To screen, or not to screen? That is the question prompted by a recent study of young women and mammograms. In 2009, the US Preventative Service Task Force said that women should receive regular mammograms at the age of 50. As NBC reported, another study earlier this year showed that women over 50 don’t need to have annual mammograms. Now, The Today Show noted a new study put together at Harvard Medical School, showed that some women who died of breast cancer before the age of 50 had never been screened. Read More
