Just when you’d written off all men as mansplainers and ignoramouses and were growing weary of trying to teach them, to no avail, about woes of toxic masculinity, Justin Baldoni’s new web series, Man Enough, may just give you new hope.  Trying to join the ranks of Oprah, Ellen, and the cast of The View as a talk show host, the Jane The Virgin star uses roundtable discussions, interviews, and intimate talks with his dad to exlplore topics ranging from men’s aversion to vulnerability, to porn, to...
  Ctrl Alt Delete is a new webseries about abortion that you won’t want to abort. Composed of seven short episodes—each only three minutes long—Ctrl Alt Delete follows seven different women from all walks of life as they each have an abortion. Set in the same clinic, each episode focuses on a different woman’s story. The filmmarkers, Roni Geva and Margaret Katch, also fill their world with a cast of recurring characters, including a gaggle of pro-choice protestors, a delightfully odd and shameless waiting-room patient who never...
  We’re excited to announce our February/March 2018 cover gal — Krysten Ritter, who returns to Netflix as Jessica Jones this March. This cover is extra special because Ritter is one of the few celebrities who’s appeared on the cover of BUST twice — the first time was back in 2012, when she was starring in Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23. In this interview, she shares why she loves playing “dark, dangerous” characters, gets real about money, and more. This issue is currently on its...
When I spoke with comedian and actor Lauren Ash, she had just left the Superstore writers’ room. Though she was just working on her first writing gig for the NBC show, Ash has starred as rigid assistant manager Dina Fox for three seasons now.  Dina, a fan favorite who isn’t afraid to start fights and wield her power at a St. Louis branch of fictional megastore Cloud 9, is just one of the diverse ensemble cast of equally quirky yet all-too-realistic characters. As Newsweek wrote, no...
  On January 9, All the Money in the World made headlines when USA Today reported Michelle Williams was paid under $1,000 during the film reshoot while her co-star Mark Wahlberg made — well — all the money in the world (or $1.5 million). Now, the Hollywood Reporter is sharing that Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross is apparently earning “significantly less” than her onscreen husband Anthony Anderson. The award-winning show is currently undergoing negotiations for its fifth season. An unnamed source told the Hollywood Reporter that if Ellis Ross isn’t...
    On Wednesday, Samantha Bee unleashed a hilarious and poignant bit of full-frontal-feminist standup on her show, saying, “so now that we’re finally listening to women, some people are asking an important question: should we stop listening to women?” Her question references the backlash the #MeToo movement is receiving in response to the Shitty Media Men List and the accusation against Aziz Ansari. A little context: In October, a woman, who has since revealed herself to be Moira Donegan, anonymously compiled a crowd-sourced list of men working...
    Last night, the Golden Globes were held — and were especially notable because this was the first awards ceremony since the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement started. And Hollywood acknowledged the moment in a big way — or at least, the women did. Almost every celebrity woman — and eight activists, including #MeToo creator Tarana Burke, who attended as celebrity women's plus-ones — wore black and spoke out against sexual harassment on the red carpet. But men, with a few exceptions, did not speak out (in interviews...
    There’s a lot to love about Netflix’s The Crown — gorgeous costumes, Claire Foy’s angry-yet-composed face, storylines that sends you straight to Wikipedia to find out what actually happened — but perhaps the best thing about The Crown is the character of Princess Margaret, played in the first and second seasons by Vanessa Kirby as a glamorous, snarky, constantly-smoking socialite with perfect eyeliner and incredibly bad luck with men. Netflix previously announced that the Crown will be changing actors for its third season — which makes...
  There are some scattered rumors over the internet that The Big Bang Theory may wrap up after season 12, and if so, good riddance. If you have ever felt a tingle that something just might be wrong with the show but can’t place it, the wait is over. Over the summer, writer and artist Jonathan McIntosh created a couple videos on his YouTube channel Pop Culture Detective. The videos explain “The Adorkable Misogyny of The Big Bang Theory” and “The Complexity of Geek Masculinity on the...
Around 6 a.m. on the morning of July 26, Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets announcing that trans people would no longer be accepted in the U.S. Military. Comedian Patti Harrison was on her way to record a radio commercial in Long Island, NY, when she heard the news—and not long after, she got an unexpected call. The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon wanted her to perform a monologue about Trump’s proposed trans ban. “Now, I don’t necessarily want to serve in the...
