What happens when Pokémon characters of all shapes, colors, and stages of evolution ditch their Pokéballs for the world of high fashion? Hilarity ensues, of course! Though Pikachu and friends won’t be strutting down the runway anytime soon, you can find them ‘shopped into fashion editorials on one 23-year-old’s Tumblr.Francis Phommisai, an Ontario-based Zara merchandiser, has posted more than 300 entries on his ...

Funny lady Sarah Silverman is no stranger to standing up for women’s reproductive rights. During the 2012 election cycle, she tackled voter ID laws with her usual snark. And back in October, Silverman made a cameo in a video for the Center for Reproductive Rights, which has been defending women’s abortion rights against an onslaught of restrictive state and federal laws. Now, the controversial comedian is asking men to step up and fight for ... Read More
When Elaine Hamel started Girls at Work out of a pickup truck back in 2000, she initially feared that there wouldn’t be enough interest in her girls-only woodshop classes. Fast forward 12 years and the New Hampshire-based nonprofit has given nearly 6,000 girls across New England the opportunity to try their hands at woodworking.  “As a builder I never met women in the field,” Hamel told us. “But we recently held a workshop on the cape ...

Theater fans and women’s rights activists know Tony Award-Winning playwright, Eve Ensler, for her internationally acclaimed play, The Vagina Monologues. Soon after its 1996 premiere, she launched V-Day, a nonprofit dedicated to ending violence against women. But the powerhouse known as Ensler was only just getting started. Her latest work, Emotional Creature, has made its Off-Broadway debut this month. It has already enjoyed successful runs in South Africa ... Read More
Well, this is troubling. Despite mounting scientific evidence that climate change is wreaking havoc upon people across the globe and our ecosystems (check out this regional chart by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), some Republican lawmakers continue to insist that the movement is a hoax. According to Addicting Info, three of these lawmakers--California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, and Wisconsin Rep. James Sensenbrenner--have been ... Read More
Atlanta couple Bria Airb and Chrissy Chambers hit YouTube this past summer with humorous, equality-themed duets. Today, their videos collectively boast over 325,000 views –and with good reason. Tackling hot-button themes like Chick-Fil-A's anti-gay stance and the Republican Party's rape gaffes, they'll manage to make any feminist chuckle (instead of pulling out her hair). We chatted with the singing, song-writing, and dress-up loving duo about the 2012 ... Read More
I was first introduced to funny lady (and generally awesome human being) Tina Fey during the 2008 election season. Her hilariously dead-on impressions of Sarah Palin never failed to put my racing 19-year-old mind at ease. Little did I know that in 2012, our rights to safe and legal abortions, affordable birth control, and equal pay would be at stake. Clearly, we still need our Tina. Enraged by the vomit-inducing rape comments made by Republican politicians, Fey ... Read More
  Last night, Tea Party-pandering Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock claimed that pregnancies resulting from rape are “something God intended to happen.” His words come on the heels of a host of incendiary rape comments by members of the GOP –none of whom have a vagina, may I add. But abortion isn’t the only right at stake this election season. According to a recent report by the National Women’s Law Center, ... Read More
    Remember those Roaring Twenties-inspired Momiji dolls? Well, the makers of these adorable message dolls are back with a spooktacular new release named Spookie. With her pink hair, freckles, and heart-shaped lips, she’ll be the cutest trick-or-treater in town.    Gift her to the All Hallow’s Eve fanatics in your life (each limited-edition doll comes equipped with a pull-out message card). Or, keep the little skeleton-clad ... Read More
  There's no denying that homophobia (and all kinds of phobias, for that matter) runs rampant in the Twitter-verse. Last week alone, NoHomophobes.com, a website dedicated to exposing homophobic Twitter users, noted that 218,477 tweets contained the slur "faggot". Just when I thought Twitter had gone to the trolls, my faith in the Internet was restored this past weekend (if only for a moment). The Huffington Post reported that the ... Read More
