  According to the calendar, September 22nd is the first day of fall. But for many people, myself included, fall doesn’t start until mid-October, when the temperature drops and the drugstores break out the fake cobwebs. For me, Halloween and the days leading up to it are peak fall. It’s a season ripe with nostalgia. Gift bags featuring cartoon bats, ghosts, and other various Halloween iconography make me wistful for elementary school, when wearing a costume in public was considered a privilege. Some of the best...
With just one $40 T-shirt purchase, you can send a girl in Togo, West Africa to school for a year. Sound awesome? Kathleen Hanna thinks so, too. When the musician, activist, and riot grrrl revolutionary first came across Tina Kampor and her nonprofit Peace Sisters, she was instantly drawn to the cause. “[Tina] had a lot of really personal stories because she was a teacher in Togo for many years before she moved to California, and she saw girls constantly dropping out of school,” Hanna tells...

I like to make my historical novels as authentically Victorian as possible. However, when it comes to the subject of dental health, I’m guilty of fudging the facts. The truth is, not everyone in the 19th century had strong white teeth. Rather the opposite. In an era with no Crest Whitestrips, no veneers, and somewhat primitive dentistry, you were more likely to encounter a hero with brown or missing teeth than one with a gleaming white smile. That’s not to say that the Victorians were ignorant of...

  For some, New York Fashion Week can be likened to a religious experience. I once overheard two women on the subway frantically whisper, “The shows are coming! Don’t you know? The shows are coming!” This cherished encounter will always be the most New York thing that’s ever happened to me. But I digress. In an industry known for embracing change and new ideas, fashion is helping lead the way when it comes to social activism. As the political climate attempts to silence the voices and basic...
