We could only hope that after the New Delhi bus incident and the rape and murder of three young sisters that media coverage would somehow ameliorate these problems, at least a little bit. Instead we receive more devastating news: a Swiss tourist was gang raped in front of her husband while camping in central India. The couple was on a bike tour and decided to set up camp in Madhya Pradesh when between five and seven men attacked them, holding the man back as the ... Read More

After the discrimination we’ve been hearing about in Colorado, it’s refreshing to hear about a new bill in California that expands transgender students’ rights. AB1266 will allow students to join sports teams and use restrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity. Executive director of the Transgender Law Service Masen Davis stated that "Transgender boys are boys, and transgender girls are girls, and this bill ensures they ... Read More
fASHLIN was founded by designer, stylist, and photographer Ashlin Choate. I am completely obsessed with this girl, based on all the amazing stuff she is producing with this self-made company. fASHLIN is a self-described cult-fashion label, with heavy influences from 90’s grunge, punk, nu-goth, mysticism, and general badassery. (If you like Daria and slime text, you will like fASHLIN. Bear with me.) fASHLIN operates through its Etsy, which sells insanely ... Read More

Fazlalizadeh is a prolific artist who has worked with several mediums, including oil ... Read More

Feminist icon and punk legend Kathleen Hanna is one of my many heroes. Defiant activist, outspoken pro-choicer, amazing songwriter, skilled musician, and prolific zine author, my friends and all kind of wish we were her. Her ground-breaking riot grrrl band Bikini Kill changed punk forever but Hanna wasn’t going to stop there. After Bikini Kill broke up in 1997, she went on to start electronic-dance-punk band Le Tigre, which is now sadly on ... Read More

Do you enjoy men ordering you to smile on the street? How about telling you you’ve got a nice ass? Or maybe just a suggestive whistle while you walk to work? No? Neither do we. That’s why we’re stoked on the Coalition for Gender Equity in Schools’ new youth-led summit about street harassment. On March 25th, middle and high school students will host an event that will engage in a thought-provoking dialogue on the not-so-intelligent dialogue ... Read More
