Lady-power, as it turns out, isn’t just limited to humans. Many people think of the animal world as more traditionally gendered, but badass females actually transcend species. Here is just a taste of the awesomeness: 1. Lady-bonobos  Female bonobos are sexually liberated.  Bonobo societies are matriarchies, with females living at the top of their group’s social pyramid.  A high ranking bonobo’s male offspring will go on to become a ...

  I love New York. I’ve lived here my whole life, and wouldn’t trade a minute of it for anything.  That being said, there’s a lot about growing up in a big city, especially for a young woman, that’s not so great. I’m thinking particularly of street harassment—it’s something that I, along with countless others around the world, have had to deal with almost every day from a very young age.Some of my friends yell ...

So apparently women are incapable of parking in standard sized parking spaces.  Or, at least, that’s what the owners of a mall in northern China seem to think. They have created special parking spots “respectfully reserved for ladies” which are not only painted bright pink but also nearly a foot wider than a regular spot.  I don’t know how respectful I find this, though. In fact, I’d say that’s pretty damn sexist and ... Read More

This clip about sexual assault and campus safety speaks for itself:  Last Friday, Williams had a segment on the show addressing the ridiculous new US military uniform codes ... Read More

Movie Review: Lucy

BY Gwen Berumen in Movies |

Soon after, however, the bag starts leaking the drug into her system and her brain begins functioning beyond the capabilities of an average human's brain.   The film rests on the myth that humans use only ...

“Sarang” is the Korean word for “love.”  It is also the name of the 3-month-old baby who died from malnutrition in 2010 while her parents were out on a 10 hour online gaming binge.  The couple, a Mr. and Ms. Kim, spent 6-12 hours every day playing the online game Prius which, ironically, involves raising a virtual child named Anima.  Unfortunately, Anima took precedent over Sarang, their real-world baby.  “The ...
