When she’s not playing hilarious businesswoman Brianna Hanson on Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, June Diane Raphael is focused on activism, creating art about outrageous, incredible women, and fostering an empowering community for women at her local JCC. Last week, I talked to Raphael about Brianna’s upcoming arc in Grace and Frankie, her new movie The Disaster Artist, and actions she’s taken as an intersectional feminist post-election. You play Grace’s daughter, Brianna, on Netflix’s Grace and Frankie. What draws you to her? You know, I really love that...
Julia may take a while to respond, and probably won’t make eye contact, but as Sesame Street fairy Abby Cadabby would say, “That’s just Julia being Julia.” In its 47th season, the veteran PBS show will introduce its first muppet with autism, a redhead 4-year-old named Julia. She carries her favorite stuffed rabbit with her and likes to draw, sing and play with her friends Abby, Elmo and Big Bird.    This follows her appearance in print and digital materials as part of the “See Amazing in All...
Samantha Bee typically dedicates the majority of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee to unloading on the Trump administration, breaking down new policies while simultaneously (and comically) pointing out each and every flaw. However, in a segment of her latest episode, Bee turns her finger towards a new group: Democrats. She has a bone to pick with Democrats over the low, low percentage of voter turnout. While the #resistance is bringing awareness to the issues, it’s important that it moves beyond protests and marches. The only way...
“Tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell your families,” Issa Rae, the badass co-creator and star of the HBO show Insecure, just tweeted a video announcing the date of Insecure’s Season 2 [remiere. Psst, it’s July 23rd. Rae wouldn’t comment on the relationship status of Issa (Issa Rae) or Molly (Yvonne Orji), but she did say “it’s about to get hot this summer” and that the already dope show is about to get “doper than ever!” "When does season 2 of #InsecureHBO premiere," you ask? pic.twitter.com/PtyKm2QHNw — Issa...

While Ilana Glazer may let it all hang out in her comedy show, Broad City, she is very reserved about her personal life. It came as a surprise for us all when Pheobe Robinson, of the podcast Two Dope Queens, posted a congratulatory pic on Instagram, writing: “Belated congrats to these beautiful [babies] on getting hitched. Love you hard and deep. You’re truly #RelationshipGoals and inspire me.” According to The Cut, Glazer married long-term boyfriend, David Rooklin, at a small city hall ceremony in February. She...
Last week, SNL made headlines with a sketch of men using feminism as a pickup line. This past Saturday, the crew was back at it again with "A Sketch for the Women," on the theme of male feminists, this time tackling the ever-irritating trend of men mansplaining women’s issues. Host Scarlett Johansson and cast member Aidy Bryant began the sketch by explaining that they, and the entire female cast, had proudly taken the day off for A Day Without A Woman. Because the sketches are...
Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel the Handmaid’s Tale is coming out on April 26th. And this weekend, at SXSW, Hulu pulled a bit of terrifying viral marketing by having women dressed up as Handmaids roam the streets of Austin, Texas. As many people are pointing out on social media, the dystopia of The Handmaid’s Tale has a few too many things in common with Trump’s America — the regulation of women’s bodies, anti-Muslim rhetoric coming from the government, “fake news” — so the sight...
  Steven Universe, the first Cartoon Network show created by a woman (Rebecca Sugar, former Adventure Time writer), is so much more than just a kids' show - it’s a feminist revolution. The show focuses on the Crystal Gems, a team of renegade aliens who take the form of giant, powerful women who protect Earth. Steven is the half-human, half-Crystal Gem son of Rose Quartz (leader of the Crystal Gems) and Greg Universe (a regular human man). In order to create Steven, Rose had to give up...

"I freakin' marched for you! You won’t get down on this?!" In the daily business of being women, we don our defensive armor in preparation for the deluge of catcalls and passes we will likely encounter before we’ve even grabbed our morning cup of joe. Now, in the age of the Women’s March, we have to contend with a whole new breed of man and his pickup antics — the self-proclaimed male feminists who hide their misogyny under a pink pussy hat. These so-called woke dudes...
*Spoilers for Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life below, though it's been four months and you really should have watched it by now, or at least not clicked this link if you wanted to remain un-spoiled.* When the Gilmore Girls revival season ended with those long-teased four words — “Mom?” “Yeah?” “I’m pregnant.” — we thought that Netflix was setting us up for a sequel, even though creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has said in interviews that she’s had those in mind as the FINAL four words...
