5 Up-And-Coming Women Musicians You Should Know About

By Dave Steinfeld  In Music  On Nov 13, 2018

These days, it seems like you see the phrase “The Future Is Female” everywhere you look. While that may be the case, it’s also true that the present is largely female — at least as far as music is concerned. And if you think that present is limited to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, think again. There are probably more talented women out there—young and old, black and white, straight and gay and everything in between—making music than ever before. Here are five of them. Celisse Henderson “Multi-talented” is a word that… Read more

By Mighty Writers  In Feminism  On Nov 13, 2018

This essay was written by a student at Mighty Writers, an education nonprofit that offers free writing classes to over 2,500 inner-city Philadelphia students a year. Hi Dad, This is Saviyah. I wanted to say thank you for my birthday card that you sent me. I absolutely love it and I will cherish it forever. I know I haven’t written you in a long time, but I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. I’ve been going to this writing camp on Thursdays and the topic I chose to write about is how to cope with a parent being… Read more
After 20 Republican years, Arizona has turned blue, thanks to Kyrsten Sinema. The New York Times reported yesterday that the former social worker defeated her Republican contender Martha McSally to claim the Senate seat being vacated by Jeff Flake. Sinema is not only the first female senator in Arizona’s history, but also the first openly bisexual senator in the US. Her background proves a stark difference to Arizona’s past representatives: Sinema has spoken in the past about enduring both homelessness and bullying… Read more
Wildfires continue to rage across the Sierra Nevada foothills and the Los Angeles shoreline. Since Thursday, around 200,000 acres have burned. Among the cities damaged: Pulga, an old mining town in Northern California. First born of the indigenous Concow-Maidu, it became the vibrant intersection of industrialists, laborers, and beatniks. The gold rush having long passed, the town stood for years in disrepair. In 2015, it was passed to Betsy Ann Cowley who transformed it – with a small budget and army of friends – into… Read more

The Girls' Guide To Reno, Nevada

By BUST Magazine  In Living  On Nov 13, 2018

Known for its past as an audacious gambling hub complete with brightly lit neon-signed motels, Reno has evolved beyond its “smaller Vegas” stereotype to host a thriving and dynamic arts culture (thanks, in part, to its proximity to Burning Man). Stay away from the gaudy nightlife of the casinos and instead dive straight into the heart of the city, where locals are friendly and good times are aplenty. The DeLuxe FOOD + DRINKS To indulge like a true local, head to The Little Nugget (233 N. Virginia St.), a classic… Read more

But when her parents discovered her flirting with drinking, drugs, and girls, they staged an intervention that drove her from faith and family.

This compelling debut is shaped like a search for a long-lost friend, or an… Read more
Michelle Obama is getting candid about fertility issues. In her new memoir Becoming, the former first lady opens up about her difficult road to the birth of her two daughters, Malia and Sasha. In an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts for a special on the book, she reveals she had a miscarriage 20 years ago, and eventually turned to in vitro fertilization to conceive her daughters. “I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were, because we don't talk about them,” she… Read more
It’s been six days since Beto O’Rourke lost his bid to get Senator Ted Cruz out of office. It’s been six days and I’m still coming to terms with the fact that half of the voters in my home state, which I have always repped proudly, really don’t like that I exist. Here’s what I mean. I’m a woman, a woman of color to be exact. I identify as Tejana (basically a Texas-born person of Mexican descent), but Latina to those I don’t have the patience to explain why there’s a difference. I’m bisexual. There’s so many other parts… Read more

By Desdemona Dallas  In Movies  On Nov 12, 2018

The Rape Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) reported an estimated 147 percent spike above normal call volumes to their national hotline aimed at helping survivors of sexual assault during the Kavanaugh trail. Since the presidential election of 2016, the news has been overwhelmed with stories about sexual assault. As we have finally started to come terms with the once-hidden prevalence of sexual assault in our society, it is equally as important that we start to understand the true effects of these acts.… Read more
When I was about eight, I became obsessed with Lady Jane Grey after seeing this painting in the National Gallery. Truly, I was a gem of a child. This Victorian painting by Paul Delaroche embodies everything that has made Jane’s story stand the test of time. The innocent teenager forced into a role she didn’t want by a power hungry family, who reigned for nine days before being stripped of her crown and thrown into prison, and finally met her end thanks to a bloody axe and a sadistic queen. It’s a good story, right?… Read more

The former track and field coach of the man who shot and killed 12 people Thursday night at a California bar has come forward saying he sexually assaulted her when he was a senior at Newbury Park High School, CBS Los Angeles reports. Dominique Colell says Ian David Long assaulted her during practice when she was trying to find the owner of a misplaced phone.

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Nov 09, 2018

JON SPENCERSpencer Sings the Hits (In the Red Records) Jon Spencer knows that all you need in order to write a stompin’ rocker is an old guitar, a beat-up amp, and a bit of attitude.

Erotic Sci-Fi Graphic Novel "Open Earth" Explores Polyamory In Space

By Isabel S. Dieppa  In Books  On Nov 09, 2018

Relationships and sex have been topics of discussion and subjects of art since the beginning of time. We’ve seen sex depicted in cave paintings, Egyptian hieroglyphs, and Greek frescos. Due to the Christian Protestant history of the United States, our overall culture privileges heteronormative, monogamous relationships; however, things are changing. As our culture continues to shift, so do our views on what a healthy and happy relationship looks like. In Open Earth, author Sarah Mirk takes the subjects of sex, monogamy… Read more
PIP BLOMPaycheck(Persona Non Grata) To hear some people tell it, rock is dead. Yet somehow, promising young musicians keep cropping up. One such person is Pip Blom of Amsterdam, who began her career by writing a bunch of songs in her room. Those first few releases, in 2016, were all breezy pop-rock constructions that landed somewhere between Courtney Barnett and Kate Nash—buoyant, but not very revolutionary. Paycheck is something else entirely. Backed by a full band and armed with a newfound wistfulness, Blom cranks up… Read more
Juliana Huxtable is wearing blue lipstick, bright pink tights, a plaid miniskirt, and a floral top when she goes onstage at Detroit's Church of the Messiah—a 130-year-old building that's home to a social justice-minded congregation—to speak about "Seeing and Being Seen." She's part of a panel on the subject as part of Culture Lab Detroit; later, she'll end the day with a 1 a.m. DJ set at the nightclub Olympus Hall. This ability to be equally at home speaking on a panel at a church, lecturing in an art museum, and DJing… Read more

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Nov 09, 2018

BOYGENIUSSelf-Titled(Matador) Boygenius is the new project of indie mavens Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus, catalyzed by an upcoming tour and a mutual affinity for one another, both personally and musically. The six-song seven-inch is collaborative, but balanced by each artist’s own devastating songwriting abilities. Dacus’ album opener, “Bite the Hand,” sets the tone with pared-down instrumentation that builds into beautiful harmonies—each voice distinct yet complementary to the whole. Bridgers’ “Me & My… Read more
“Can a congresswoman wear her hair in braids, rock a black leather jacket and a bold red lip,” Ayanna Pressley asked the crowd – and the nation – during her impassioned victory speech. The answer is an irrefutable, “yes.” On Tuesday, Pressley made history as the first black woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts. The 44-year-old shocked voters (and herself) in an upset victory against Democratic Rep. Michael Capuano during the primaries. At the midterms, history was made across the States: a record-breaking… Read more

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized with three broken ribs, following a fall in her Supreme Court office Wednesday, reports CNN. According to the Court’s statement, RBG reported discomfort after returning home and was admitted the next morning to George Washington University “for observation and treatment." Immediately, devotees of Notorious RBG—as she is fondly know— offered their own ribs and threatened to sequester RBG in a 20-foot-thick bubble wrap for the next two years. Panic jokes aside, the alarm… Read more
Parisian indie music group Bagarre's new song "Diamant" (meaning "Diamond") celebrates female masturbation. The video features a teenage girl eager to discover the female orgasm. With the encouragement from the female lead in Bagarre, the girl escapes dinner with her overbearing traditional parents and hides in the bathroom, where she unzips her pants. It’s a social commentary about sexual freedom, but it also playfully addresses the issue of representation. In an interview with The Huffington Post France, lead singer… Read more

Director Aly Migliori's "After Her" Reshapes The "Lost Girl" Story

By Molly MacGilbert  In Movies  On Nov 08, 2018

Whether they’re California vampires or a band of orphaned children captained by Peter Pan, lost boys are fallen and forever chasing. In The Lost Boys (1987), leather-clad Santa Carla vampires hunt their prey (while their prey hunts them). In J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, the lost boys become lost when they “fall out of their perambulators when the nurse is looking the other way,” and spend their subsequent years clinging to Peter. But where are the lost girls? “Girls,” Peter tells Wendy, “are much too clever to fall out of… Read more

In this 2018 midterm election, abortion rights showed up on ballots in Alabama, West Virginia, and Oregon. While Oregon overturned the vote to ban public funding for abortions, Alabama and West Virginia did the opposite. Alabama voted in favor of banning public funding for abortions, and won by 19 points. The amendment will order “the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life,” as well as preventing state funds from assisting in access to abortion. The same was true in West… Read more

Let's Talk About Voter Suppression In Georgia

By Lydia Wang  In Feminism  On Nov 07, 2018

As of Wednesday morning, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams isn’t conceding her race—and she shouldn’t. According to CNN’s most recent results, Republican Brian Kemp is only winning by around 66,000 votes, and his lead continues to wither. He currently has 50.4% of the vote to Abrams’ 48.7%, and if both percentages dip under 50%, there will be a runoff in December, CNN reported. If she wins, Abrams will be America’s first-ever black female governor. Her platform promises housing equity, accessible ways to… Read more
Florida voters passed key ballot initiative Amendment 4 last night, restoring voting rights to 1.5 million people with prior felony convictions. The stats are in on the Pensacola News Journal website - it was passed with 64% of the vote. This is the third time since the '70s that Florida has attempted to enfranchise the state's felons with the the right to vote, but this was the first time it voted in by the people. Data gathered by the Sentencing Project estimates that over 10% percent of the state’s population has… Read more
So, not everything went as we would’ve hoped last night but we saw a lot of firsts for women, especially for women of color! According to the New York Times, over a quarter of the candidates who ran in the midterm elections were women, which included 84 women of color. That is a 42 percent increase from the past election cycle, but still not enough. Women are continuing to break down barriers and beat out white male incumbants. This is the most women EVER elected to serve in Congress at the same time. According to NPR,… Read more

In the weeks after doomsday (aka the 2016 presidential election), Liz Alpern felt all the feels—confusion, fear, blindsided despair. So she looked for comfort in the things she knows best: food and community. Alpern, 33, is a business owner, food educator (she co-runs The Gefilteria, an artisanal Jewish food company), and organizing powerhouse within Brooklyn’s queer community. And she had a hunch that soup might serve as the healing balm and rallying force she and others needed. “I’d always dreamed of hosting a queer… Read more
A lorgnette is, quite simply, a pair of spectacles mounted on a handle. The precursor to modern opera glasses, lorgnettes were a common sight during the 19th century at the theater as well as the opera. And since the name lorgnette derives from the French word lorgner—meaning “to ogle” or “to eye furtively”—one can only imagine the many uses to which a curious socialite in the balcony might have put them. Whether employed to sneakily spy on a rival across the way, stealthily investigate a young gentleman down in the… Read more
Abbi and Ilana are out voting, what about you? The Broad City queens just released a new video, “Russian,” aimed to remind you all to the jump out of bed and run – yes, RUN – to the polls. Of course, the skit isn’t quite that straightforward. It opens with Abbi quizzing Ilana on Russian phrases, which quickly escalate from “yes” to “would you like me to urinate on you strong man". Don’t worry, it’s all part of Ilana’s master plan to infiltrate Russia. Watch the video below and, you know, vote! Find your nearest polling… Read more

Of Allyship And Accountability

By Jasmine Neosh  In Feminism  On Nov 06, 2018

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an article reflecting on the state of being indigenous at a time when that was apparently of interest to people who do not typically give any thought to indigeneity. That article got picked up by BUST and generated a lot more attention than I realized it would. I appreciate the comments and responses, both thoughtful and not. Some people may be surprised to realize that while I am willing to criticize “one of my own” as the part of America that does not embrace the white supremacist… Read more

Timothée Chalamet Proves He's Here To Stay With "Beautiful Boy"

By Eliza C. Thompson  In Movies  On Nov 06, 2018

There are still some people out there who think Timothée Chalamet is overrated, or a flash in the pan, or just some nobody that teens made a thing. I personally only associate with Timothée superfans (Chalamaniacs?) so I don’t know any of these people, but I know that they exist. If there’s any justice in the world, these people will see Beautiful Boy and then they will shut up forever. Directed by Felix Van Groeningen, Beautiful Boy is based on the true story of Nic Sheff, who started battling methamphetamine… Read more

If you were obsessed with the drama of Sweet Valley High long before Gossip Girl premiered; if you dreamed of starting your own business as a preteen thanks to the Baby-Sitters Club; if you kept yourself awake at nights because Goosebumps made you too scared to sleep—in other words, if you were a preteen or teen in the '80s or '90s—you'll want to pick up Paperback Crush: The Totally Radical History Of '80s And '90s Teen Fiction by Gabrielle Moss.

Elizabeth Eckford's Life After That Famous Photo

By F Yeah History  In Feminism  On Nov 05, 2018

In 1954, the American Supreme Court declared the continuation of school segregation to be unlawful...though it would be 3 years until Arkansas' capital city, Little Rock, actually acted on this. Thanks to a huge amount of pressure from the Little Rock NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), it was agreed that in September 1957, nine black students could enroll at the until-then-whites-only Little Rock Central High School. They became known as the Little Rock Nine. A group of teens, all… Read more

November 6 Is Election Day. What's Your Voting Plan?

By Tessa Solomon  In Feminism  On Nov 05, 2018

November 6 is the midterm elections, and—no exaggeration—you have all the power. The power to boot Trump’s puppets from Congress. To upset an administration that weaponizes racism, rewards abusers, and assails basic human rights. So even if you’re tired, even if you’re busy, even if your dog just died the same day your s.o. left: Go vote. But still, we get it. Voting can be overwhelming (confusing, boring, ect.). It helps to have a game plan—here’s ours. (And here’s a guide for Spanish speakers, pass it along to anyone… Read more

On Mindful Bitchface

By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill  In Living  On Nov 05, 2018

After a lifetime of strangers scurrying from my path, coworkers asking if I'm angry with them and people looking back at me with a panicked "What?" I accepted my diagnosis. I have what medical professionals call severe chronic resting bitchface. My features naturally relax into a scowl somewhere between judgy stone statue and pre-strike hooded cobra. When concentrating or listening intently, my brows angle down like train cars about to collide. Occasionally the left eyebrow makes a break for my hairline in an arch that… Read more

"Suspiria" Has Its Moments But Is Ultimately A Letdown

By Eliza C. Thompson  In Movies  On Nov 02, 2018

As premises for horror movies go, you absolutely cannot go wrong with “haunted ballet school run by witches.” It’s one reason why the original Suspiria, released in 1977, is such a classic, but it’s also why it’s hard to get mad at Luca Guadagnino for wanting to remake it. Even if you believe Dario Argento’s version is sacred, we’ll all benefit from a new addition to the witch ballet school genre, right? Unfortunately, the answer is...sure. Don’t get me wrong—sure is fine. But sure is not exactly what the marketing for… Read more

By Samantha Mann  In Books  On Nov 02, 2018

It's Flashback Friday, and today we're looking back at some feminist history. Here is a list of five classic feminist reading recommendations that aren't The Feminine Mystique. The list below spans almost 70 years of feminist history, from the 1920s to the '90s, and includes books tackling work, sex, politics, and identity.
