Accidents happen, but they don't have to send you underwear shopping after every cycle! Stop throwing out your panties and grab a bottle of Ruby's Red Wash. Ruby's Red Wash is an eco-friendly menstrual stain remover made of a mixture of live bacteria cultures. Why didn't anyone think of this sooner? (I miss you, panties.) I used the wash on an old stain on my bedsheets, and it knocked it right out without hardcore scrubbing. And it turns out Ruby's Red Wash is ... Read More
A little bit '60s psychedelic revival', a little bit 'garage rock', and all 'up in your face'. Here are two clips of the Pandoras performing for the Los Angeles cable show, "L.A. IN!", circa 1985. This is my kind of band. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
More than 75% of American women who are employed work full-time jobs. In the Netherlands, nearly 60% of working women are employed part-time. While it may not be possible to pinpoint all of the reasons for this discrepancy, these are two different statistics, denoting clearly different job cultures. In the United States, most young women are raised to be career-oriented and taught to do whatever it takes to climb the ranks in the workforce. Part-time Dutch ... Read More

With the Philly Naked Bike Ride and fall’s SlutWalk Providence quickly approaching, I needed something glitzy to complete my event attire - or non-attire. Yeah, yeah, it’s called ‘Naked’ Bike Ride, but it’s also an opportunity to wear nipple tassels and pasties and prance around in public. Since I don’t have the funds for the fancy stuff (like these babies from Agent Provocateur), I rolled up my sleeves and crafted my own no-sew ... Read More
Rockabilly sweetheart Nikki Lane pays homage to old school country in a new video for her song, "Gone, Gone, Gone." The track is off her recently-released EP of the same name, which was co-written and produced by Lewis Pesacov of Fool’s Gold. A little Loretta Lynn and a little Holly Golightly, Nikki brings a cool, modern edge to classic country without the sugary popness of today's country (step aside, Taylor Swift). Nikki's debut LP, Walk of Shame, is set ... Read More
She was possibly the most badass woman in the history of World War II. One of the most decorated WWII servicewomen, Nancy Wake led 7,000 maquisards - armed resistance fighters -  in battles against the Nazis. She rode a bicycle for more than 500 miles through several German checkpoints to replace codes her wireless operator had been forced to destroy in a raid. She even killed an SS sentry with her bare hands - a fatal karate chop - to prevent him from ... Read More

Laura Flynn-Amato (above), an animal rights crusader hailing from Staten Island, dedicates her life to changing the fate of puppies born in ... Read More
