While the topic of women’s rights doesn‚Äôt have the box office draw of a bunch of dudes getting wasted at a bachelor party, say, or a bride-to-be getting diarrhea in the middle of the street, there are many excellent movies that cover various aspects of the War on Women (either directly or metaphorically)‚ÄĒworkplace discrimination, violence [...]

It’s a great day to be a progressive American! So happy to know we’re moving forward in the 21st century, not backward to the 1950s.

photo via Flickr I (Lo here) consider myself a pretty hardcore feminist. And I love Jezebel.com. So I expected their “Woman-Child” article today to be just my kind¬†of internet candy. My best guess about its focus? The media’s obsession with infantalizing women to make them seem cuter, softer, more¬†likeable. But it actually turned out to [...]

Singer/pianist/lyricist/composer/performance artist¬†Amanda Palmer, a.k.a. Amanda Fucking Palmer or AFP, is¬†the epitome of an American indie¬†artist. She’s bold, unapologetic, bisexual,¬†with awesomely hairy armpits and actual pubic hair. She organized an unbinding flash mob wedding between¬†her and ¬†writer Neil Gaiman in 2010, then made it legal in 2011 in a private ceremony hosted by literary power couple¬†Ayelet [...]

A few years ago a humble little Tumblr blog called “Fuck Yeah, Ryan Gosling” launched, featuring images of the dreamy, blue-eyed, well-toned actor with imagined lovey-dovey quotes from him to you, the girlfriend: “Hey Girl, if I had to get swine flu, I’d want to get it from you.” It hasn’t been updated in months, [...]

In this, the year of the War on Women, it seems important to take a look back on all the hard-won battles women have poured their blood, sweat and tears into over the past 150 years. Seeing how far we’ve come makes it hard to understand why there are so many people across the country [...]
