When you take into account the events of these past few weeks, what with Donald Trump’s “Grab Her By The Pussy” "locker room talk" and other accusations of sexual assault presented against the Republican nominee, it’s fair to say that most women want to keep politics (and politicians) as far away from their pants as they can. However, Industry Standard, a denim brand based out of New York is challenging this notion in the best way possible—by embroidering their jeans to endorse Hillary Clinton. Industry Standard...
Portrait of Elizabeth, Mrs Horsley Palmer, by Thomas Lawrence, early 19th century “Votaries and observers of fashion, but not her slaves, we follow her through her versatile path; catch her varied attractions, and present her changes to our readers as they pass before us in gay succession.”  — La Belle Assemblée, 1812. Somehow, I cannot picture Elizabeth Bennet reclining on the drawing-room sofa, idly flipping through the pages of the latest issue of La Belle Assemblée or The Lady’s Magazine. And yet, if she had indulged in...

I grew up in a makeup-free household. My mom didn't wear makeup, and my dad often said he preferred her without makeup and he didn't think women should be pressured into wearing it just to fit in. My mom was a free-spirited feminist who shunned most of the ideals about women's beauty that we're subject to. She often went without a bra. She washed her hair with simple shampoo and towel-dried it. Her typical outfit was a pair of loose jeans and an oversized sweatshirt with cats...
Gigi Hadid for ReebokThe recent attack on Gigi Hadid by so-called celebrity "prankster" Vitali Sediuk has gone viral, causing mass discussion about the model's reaction and if she was right to defend herself against her attacker in the way she did. The bottom line of this story is that she of course had the right to defend herself because she felt that she was in danger, and everybody that is trying to criticize her for that is simply buying into the sexist and misogynistic societal view. What...
Photo: Luke Hannaford Deap Vally L.A.’s badass rockers reveal their beauty basics Deap Vally’s scuzzy feminist anthem “Smile More” is just the tip of the awesome iceberg that is their new album Femejism (out September 18 on Nevado Music). On its 13 tracks (produced by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner) the duo serves up intense garage rock riffs, with vocalist/guitarist Lindsey Troy getting primal with her singing, and drummer Julie Edwards giving a backbeat you’ll want to headbang to. We asked these babes—who believe “confidence is beautiful” above...
Perhaps you have heard about the “feminist” collection recently released by Dior at Spring 2017 fashion week. The line, overseen by the Dior’s first-ever female creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, featured flowing gowns paired with flats, white fencing jackets, and at the end, a midnight blue tulle skirt and sneakers paired with a t-shirt emblazoned with the words "We Should All Be Feminists.”     Clearly a reference to the book by Chimimanda Ngozi Adiche, who was sitting in the audience, the model wearing the ensemble walked down...
Easy A How do you write an egalitarian, objectively enforceable dress code? How do you write such a dress code for 50,000 students between ages of 5 and 18 years, across nearly 80 separate institutions? This is how my local public school system, Portland Public Schools in Portland, Oregon (“PPS”), tackled the puzzle. In June 2015, some brave and articulate seventh grade girls, and one boy, testified before the PPS School Board about the ways their school disproportionately enforced the dress code against girls, resulting in middle...
Photographed by Chloe Aftel Monica Canilao ARTIST | Oakland, CA Tell us about this outfit. The skirt came from a weird junk shop in Sebastopol, CA. The belt is from Mercy Vintage in Oakland. The bathing suit’s from ASOS and I added beadwork to its straps. The bag was from a friend who found it at an estate sale. The necklace was a birthday gift from a friend, as was the old beanie. I’m also wearing a gold metal crocheted bracelet made by my friend Arielle de Pinto. The earrings are...
    Earlier this week, I was scrolling through Twitter (like I do every day) when I saw this tweet:   YIKES is right. As you can see from the screenshots, photographer Pax Jones noticed that the makeup brand ColourPop was giving its sculpting sticks for dark skin tones some pretty offensive names, like “Yikes” and “Typo.” While ColourPop’s sculpting sticks for light skin tones have some weird names as well — like “Gummy Bear” and “Illuminati” — the names for lighter sculpting sticks s don’t have the negative connotations...
