The Guerrilla Girls have made their way to Ireland so you know what that means...sexism in the arts is under attack! Project Ireland has been unveiled and yes, the campaign is just as informative and to the point as their previous ones. (Sorry for fuzz, Busties! Check out the website for a crystal-clear look)If you're in Ireland (hello to my sister) you should definitely make a point to visit the ladies/guerrillas while they're out and about. Tomorrow ...

If you work hard for the money (so hard for it honey), you'll be excited to learn that museums nationwide are opening their doors to the penny-pinchin' public for free tomorrow.  That's right, absolutely zippo!  The Smithsonian-sponsored Museum Day just requires you print out a pass from their website, and you can walk right in to one of 1,200 participating art galleries, museums, and science centers.

Or read our interview with the lady behind the mask in our Aug/September issue. + + + + + + ... Read More

Craziness!

BY intern Amber in General |

For me, being pregnant was both lovely and tough. My feet swelled, my face suddenly looked puffy, my body was constantly changing uncontrollably. However there was one thing I could look forward to; no periods and unprotected sex with my husband! I relished in not having to worry about condoms or birth control methods for the long 9 months that consumed my life. Enter 'Superfetation.'  An unusual rare medical condition, Superfetation is the ... Read More
Sure, you've heard of the crocheted uterus and the knit car cozy but get a load of this genius: a perfectly done shrimp scampi scarf, complete with shrimp, angel hair pasta, peas, and broccoli. Now that's what I call food for ... Read More
Lots of talk about Barbie these days, lots of talk. It's her 50th bday, extravagant Barbie stores are opening up all over the place (like Shanghai and Mall of America), and Barbie chatter is popping up everywhere, especially here at the BUST offices. Now folks, we love all the glamour puss incarnations of this little style icon. But let's be real--Barbie's charm isn't always in her posh outfits and shiny, California hair. I don't know what your childhood Barbie ... Read More

Hello Gorgeous!

BY intern Amber in General |

At 6 years old I was introduced to Funny Girl, a wonderful musical about Fanny Brice featuring Barbra Streisand. Watching this dazzling woman with perfect comedic timing and a voice that could melt your heart like buttah, I was immediately hooked! Barbra Streisand is a true pioneer for women. Shocked? Well think about it; Barbra Streisand is the #1 best selling female recording artist in history and the only woman to make the Top 10 all time best selling artists ... Read More
Tomorrow, September 25, the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the day a group of ladies infiltrated their men-only bar, the Sazerac, and demanded a drink.  Previous to the 1949 ''Storming of the Sazerac,'' women were only allowed to enter the boy's club to partake in Mardi Gras activities.  Ever since that day, women have been admitted on the same basis as men (well, supposedly). To commemorate the momentous ... Read More
Looking to add a new instrument to your musical repertoire? If you live in NYC, this weekend you can learn to play the mbira, a traditional instrument of the Shona people from Zimbabwe. Patience Chaitezvi and Erica Azim will be leading an intensive mbira workshop on Saturday and Sunday.

Amazon Glory

BY intern Amber in General |

In the Ukraine, power has always rested in the hands of men. Women have been victims of sexual trafficking and exploitation. Misogyny has been a part of the Soviet culture for centuries causing many feminist movements to rise and fight their oppressors. The 'Asgarda,' a new tribe of empowered women, is developing in the Carpathian Mountains. Thirty-year-old Katerina Tamouska leads the tribe of 150 women, varying in ages. Using the tribal traditions of the ... Read More
