  People who get periods have a lot to deal with. Beyond the physical discomfort and inconvenience of menstruation, the social stigma and inability to access menstrual health products is so profound that the United Nations declared it a public health, gender inequality, and human rights issue. Emmy Hancock, the founder of apparel company Oluna, wants to change that.  Before 2016,  Hancock “had never really looked at menstrual items as an obstacle.” It wasn’t until she saw the award-winning film I, Daniel Blake that her perspective changed....

Normcore fashion has certainly lived out its days: the axioms of the movement have died, even though its aesthetics continue to dominate the fashion world. Perhaps they even dominate your own closet (I know that there are more than a few articles of “dad clothes” strewn across my room). From the beginning, normcore was a movement against the fundamentals of an oversaturated, overpriced, and unsustainable fashion market that peaked in 2014. If the trends aren’t exactly beneficial for the consumer, then it’s time to actively...

Morticia Addams personifies the ideal homemaker—her husband Gomez adores and respects her, and she cooks, knits, and maintains a calm head while raising two children. But this matriarch does it all with a macabre twist—like clipping and tossing blooming roses and instead displaying their spiky stems in a vase. First appearing in The New Yorker in the 1930s, Morticia and the Addams family have been the focus of a 1964 TV series, a 1992 cartoon series, and several movies, both live action and animated. But...
