In a sea of generic Playboy and Hollywood bombshell calendars, there’s finally a calendar that honors the curvy, beautiful ladies of our lives. It’s rare these days to see women in the media that aren’t Photoshopped and airbrushed into oblivion. Thin bodies are glorified in our society, and too often every other type of body is not given the appreciation and representation they deserve. The portrayal of plus-sized bodies in the mainstream is ... Read More
To be completely honest, Joan Rivers was never my favorite comedienne. Her hard-hitting jokes, told mostly at the expense of famous others (when they weren’t at her own expense) were too sharp-tongued for my taste. I thought of Rivers as overly venomous, sometimes tactless, and largely inappropriate. It wasn’t until I heard of her passing that I realized my latent admiration. In fact, it was the very dislike of her comedy that caused me to like her most; she ... Read More
Apparently some guys still think it's okay to clap at women on the street, as if it's a classier way to catcall. "It's not harassment! It's appreciation!" they cry. Well, we won't accept that answer and we call shenanigans. Jessica Williams is all too familiar with this brand of bullshit and on The Daily Show last week, she made it known this behavior is unacceptable.   "Our walk to work is not there for him to comment on. It's not a red carpet, ... Read More
  Long gone are the glory days of Myspace, where anyone with enough self-devotion and time could HTML their way to incredible levels of social cred and... So we were super psyched when Google announced in June that it would offer free coding lessons to women and minorities interested in learning the trade. But then we were super bummed when Google subsequently closed the application because, duh, so many people wanted to get involved.  Rejection hurts, ... Read More

  With women making up only 17 percent of Google’s global tech workforce, and with white and asian employees making up 94 percent of Google’s US tech force, it’s encouraging to see practical efforts to bring black and latina girls into the tech world.  Black Girls Code is an awesome organization that received a $190,000 donation from Google on Saturday to continue such efforts, according to the New York Daily News. The ...

It's only 25 minutes long, but in this video from Journeyman Pictures, these three girls, Nargis, Sadaf and Sahar, manage to show life on the screen. In the first scene, Sadaf practices the drums, explaining that she wants to prove wrong the people who find her passion unfeminine. The video follows the girls on car trips and in the park. They eat corn on the cob and chocolate donuts, showing, through the eyes of their small cameras, the vividness of life ... Read More
Karen O’s solo debut was stolen from her. Though Crush Songs, out today on Cult Records, is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer’s first official solo album, fans have most likely already heard KO at Home, the 14 home-recorded songs that were posted on the Internet in 2006. Originally a private gift for TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, KO at Home was leaked when someone found the CD in Sitek’s apartment after he’d moved out. In that context, ... Read More
