Every August, we get ultra-excited about the AfroPunk Festival, which takes place in Brooklyn, N.Y.C. The festival is a two-day celebration of music, fashion, art and culture. Aside from being packed with eye-popping musical performances and insanely good vibes, it's *also* a convergence of some of the most beautiful, stylish folks on the planet. We swear you won't find a better crowd for people-watching anywhere in the world.  This year's fest was full ...

I love this. The other day, Shea Strauss, a writer for Playboy, shared a flowchart she created on the magazine’s website—a handy guide to find out whether or not you should catcall a woman.   Turns out, the only time catcalling is okay is if A) she is literally a cat or B) you know her and have “both consensually agreed to shout sexually suggestive comments to each other in public.” AMEN.  Having women on the writing staff at ...

Bullies are everywhere, whether they're on the playground as a kid, in the locker room as an adolescent, or even the person in front of you in line for Starbucks who’s giving the barista a hard time; bullies can feel completely unavoidable. But thanks to the unSlut project we now have a plan to not only conquer bullies, but also to celebrate and spread kindness instead of hate, and it all starts with confidence! (And no it does not include baking a cake of ... Read More
Singer/songwriter/rapper Lauryn Hill  is an advocate for social justice and has always been outspoken when addressing issues of inequality for African American’s and women and many other marginalized groups of people ever since her career has begun. Though she was performing her song “Black Rage,” long before the tragic events in Ferguson, Missouri took place, she decided to re-release an old recording of the song in lieu of recent ... Read More
Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" comment has lived on in infamy but let's hope that events like Out of the Binders will increase female representation in the workplace and eliminate ridiculous comments like these.Out of the Binders: Symposium on Women Writers Today, aka BinderCon, is a conference promoting leading women in publishing, journalism and entertainment. It aims to counteract the underrepresentation of women and gender nonconforming authors in ... Read More
Ladies and gentlemen, your Saturday night #turntup #beers Instagrams have been officially one-upped. Nails and Ales is the brainchild-turned-blog of the very crafty Megan Toth, a lover of both beauty supplies and brews.    Focusing mainly on craft beers with charming names (and even cooler labels) like Southern Tier and Brouwerij West, she recreates the design on her nails or just uses it for inspiration for designs with her own spin.  Check out ...

In surprising news of the day, Big Boi (of OutKast) is an obsessive Kate Bush fan. Unsurprisingly, so are many other musicians and writers and celebrities and regular people because Kate Bush is the shit. Even though the Spin article that catalogs Big Boi’s intense love is about three years old, it’s always worth reminding people of the dream musical collab that has yet to happen. Nowadays, Bush is pretty busy. Tonight marks the first time ... Read More
In my opinion, the popular 6-second video loop app Vine is a cesspool of transphobia, slut-shaming, cheap laughs and allowed the little twerp Nash Grier to be not only “famous” but to publicly shame women’s bodies and spread homophobia to 9.3 million followers. #gross HOWEVER, upon doing a little research, I found that there are a ton of super cool feminist babes creating 6-second vines that smush the patriarchy and create more of a safe ...

These days, there seems to be an increasing amount of technological advancements aimed at making safety stylish.
