About a week ago model/actress/muse Cara Delevingne made headlines for what the Internet called a “painfully awkward” interview with Good Day Sacramento meant to publicize her lead role in Paper Towns, the eponymously named filmic adaption of author John Green’s bestselling young adult novel. Things got a little heated when the host asked Delevingne a sexist, condescending question – and rightfully so. Hollywood press junkets are basically sexism summits,  if this new Funny or Die sketch starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg is an accurate depiction. Read More
One of the hardest things in life is being a man. Seriously. It must be so exhausting making 23 cents more than women. Even more difficult is having feminism ruin a man's sex life. Ugh, I couldn't imagine a life filled with such hardships.  Luckily, the patriarchy has Dr. Catherine Hakim keeping the bigotry alive. Hakim has previously argued for marital couples to cheat on one another, and in her most recent published paper, she attributes feminism to sexually unsatisfied men. Read More
I have been wearing at least some form of makeup since I was eleven. Why? When I was eleven, it was mascara for my white-blonde eyelashes and concealer for my pimples. What about now? I don’t think I have a singular answer. I like the ritual of putting on makeup in the morning, I enjoy playing with eyeshadow and lip colors, and I genuinely think I look about 110 percent prettier with makeup on. I wear makeup because it makes me feel good. For me, it’s that simple, a reflex. Read More
Tired of being bombarded by all that women’s magazine relationship advice? Then why not take a break and let the man in your life make the self-improvement resolutions for a change?  I grew up with three sisters. And among all the other tidbits I picked up as an outnumbered male—knowing what a dollop is, for example, or how to give great compliments—I also had access to scores of women’s magazines. Read More
One made us love Lucy, another brought the funny to Carol Burnett, and a third was the first female TV exec in history. Meet the broads who fought their way into the early days of broadcasting. When The Mary Tyler Moore Show presented a single (and happy) workin’ urban gal in the early ’70s, it was considered a trailblazer—one of the rare television shows that portrayed a modern woman without being patronizing. TV has come a long way since then, baby. Read More
In an interview with Bitch Magazine, Runaways bass player Jackie Fuchs discusses how she came forward last month to say that Kim Fowley had raped her in 1976. Fuchs was passed out at the time of the attack, having taken Quaaludes, but multiple people saw the rape occur; the recent Bill Cosby allegations and other women telling their stories moved Fuchs to speak out about her own experience. “The music industry was not very kind and welcoming to women in the mid 70s,” Fuchs told Bitch.

The Charlottsville Cavaliers were heading into the last rounds of the National Travel Basketball Association’s tournament in South Carolina, triumphant after a five-game winning streak in the 11-and-under bracket. Another victory seemed imminent, until an announcement came from tourney officials: the Cavs were disqualified, because one of their players, ten year old Kymora Johnson, is a girl. Her offense? Daring to compete.  “I was, like, shocked,” Kymora told The Washington Post. “And disappointed. Read More
After Coty Richardson, a professor at Northwest Christian University, announced her pregnancy last May, her employer responded not with congratulations but demands. To keep her job at this century-old private institution in Eugene, Oregon, the professor needed to either deem the pregnancy a mistake and part ways with the child’s father (also her boyfriend of twelve years), or marry him. Asking for privacy regarding her personal life, Richardson refused to comply. Read More
Some people think that jobs in engineering, which require some serious brainpower, are only held by men. It’s absolutely preposterous that a woman could do work in that field, right? You can't have children/wear dresses/do anything conventionally woman-like and be an engineer, right? Wrong. Thus, Isis Wegner created #ILookLikeAnEngineer to dismantle this sexist way of thinking. Here’s some of the lovely ladies of technology:   All images via Twitter Read more on BUST. Read More
The shoes have come off. And the punches have been thrown. The real Cookie Lyon is upset and suing the Empire show creators for stealing her life story. Empire centers around Luscious Lyon (Terrence Howard) and the entertainment business he has amassed through drug money. Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) is the ex-wife who took the fall for their drug business. In real life, Cookie is actually Sophia Eggleston – or so she says. Read More
