An incredibly brave young woman at Columbia University is making a bold declaration against her rapist, her school and anyone who stands in the way of justice for herself and women across the nation.Emma Sulkowicz faced what, unfortunately, many female students fear today: she was raped in her dorm room on her first day of her sophomore year of college, and as if that weren’t appalling enough, her school’s administration failed to seek rightful ...

Hang time with the hilarious host of The Eric André show.Eric André’s pants are missing. No, this is not one of the daring hidden-camera pranks the comedian has become known for on The Eric André Show—a bizarre send-up of crappy public access programming that has been steadily gaining fans on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block since 2012. Rather, André seems to have actually misplaced the pants he ... Read More

New York Fashion Week kicks off in two days (!!!), but it is not only for the elite, style-forward mavens of Vogue as one may think. Fashion Week is for the creative and the curious as well.
“HA!” you might be thinking. “This girl clearly has never attempted to attend a fashion week show, ever.”
And you’d be right, which is exactly why I’m not going wax poetic about the genius that is Proenza Schouler or Miu Miu ... Read More

From Girls, to Obvious Child, to Transparent, actress Gaby Hoffmann is in everything we want to see.In a world where former-child-star meltdowns are a dime a dozen, a late afternoon lunch in Brooklyn with 32-year-old actress Gaby Hoffmann is a refreshingly chill oasis. Back in the late '80s and early '90s, Hoffmann nabbed some of the choicest kid roles of the era, in films such as Field of Dreams, Uncle Buck and Sleepless ... Read More

After moving from Honolulu, Hawai‘i to New York City, I’m gonna generalize here when I say that many Americans from the continental United States have little to no idea about Hawaiian history or about any notable Hawaiian people, much less Hawaiian women, throughout history (other than of course Lilo from Lilo and Stitch…but I mean…she’s 2D…and has an alien for a pet…).
And while it’s sweet that many people are ... Read More

What better way to close out a hot, sticky summer spent roaming the feces-littered streets of NYC than with hours and hours of "filth" from the master himself, John Waters?The Film Society of Lincoln Center will be hosting a retrospective of his films that's being called, "50 Years of John Waters: How Much Can You Take?" I for one am so happy I could shit.
The retrospective runs from September 5th-14th and kicks off with an opening night showing of Female ... Read More

Music is a very male-dominated industry, and when women do rise to prominence they are often pitted against and compared to each other, despite the fact that each queen is a unique snowflake and should be treated as such.
But once in a blue moon, all the stars align and three or more female powerhouses collaborate to create a club-banger that reminds the boys that these divas are not only fierce, but borderline superhuman when they work together. You better work, ... Read More

Zola Jesus is bigger than… well, you know. And if you don't, allow me to enlighten you with her brand new video for her song "Dangerous Days." Her music style is definitely cooler, darker and far more nuanced than many artists performing today, and I think we definitely all want to get lost within the spooky, mysterious world she so skillfully creates.The song itself is from her upcoming album TAIGA, to be released this October, and ventures further ...

Most US, live-action adaptations of mangas are known to be thrown into developmental hell and take years before they see the light of day. In a movie landscape that is mainly dominated by instant adaptations of YA novels, their sequels, and remakes, only two movies come to mind as being a directly sourced from popular mangas and/or animes: 2008’s Speed Racer and 2013’s American remake of Oldboy. Neither of the movies were box office hits. Instead of ... Read More

There’s nothing I love more than a solid night in and a good movie. As much as I enjoy a classic, though, a lot of them come from a time when “Bechdelling it” wasn’t a thing. Movies were (and in many unfortunate cases, still are) made to make money, not to make sure women get represented fairly in the entertainment industry. Or in any industry. Or in life. But I digress.
Wouldn’t it be so good if our favorite movies ... Read More
