Mama Yes!

BY intern Amber in General |

Urban World Film Festival is happening in New York City this week. I am sure there will be lots of gems to see but the most exciting premiere has to be Say My Name, a documentary by debut director Nirit Peled. Say My Name is a production of Mamamess, an urban audio-visual organization founded by Peled and Dave Hemmingway. This documentary introduces women's personal stories of balancing professional dreams with the limitations posed by urban ... Read More
If you were unable to make your way to Barnes and Noble last night to see Isabella Rossellini, well, you missed a treat. Ms. Rossellini is AMAZING.

Well, in case you missed the one completely inadequate sentence about her, now there's a whole movie dedicated to her life, achievements, and general badassery. Did you know she was the first woman to run for president? In 1872, no less? Yeah, that's right, before women could ... Read More
In yet another sexist survey, researchers ''found'' that the average woman has slept with eight men, and has been under the influence when partnering up with at least five.  A slew of articles have already begun popping up on news websites, most claiming that women need alcohol to feel confident during sex.  Okay, sure, alcohol does smooth things over a bit, but come on now: surely women aren't wetting their whistles alone.  It takes two, ...
