Phyllis Gould, 91, is one seriously awesome lady. As one of the original members of the “Rosie the Riveters”, she has been working since the Clinton Administration to receive White House recognition for the original “Rosies” and their indispensable contributions during WWII.And, luckily for us, Vice President Joe Biden is the first politician to ever respond and invite a group of six women (including Gould) to the White House for a ...

In the wake of Barack Obama’s “State of the Union” address, it’s important to consider the State of the Uterus. With impeding abortion regulations, limitations on birth control access, and proposed rape audits, our uteri stand at the forefront of one of our country’s most contentious battles.
Thank goodness that the esteemed Madame Uterus graced us with her own speech streamed last night at LadyPartsJustice.com ... Read More
Robert Redford thinks women and young people might be the solution to ineffective and less-than-unified government (ahem, shutdown). The actor, now seventy-seven, tells CNN that we should “give [women] the reins [...] they can do better than we have.” I don't take his words as a reiteration of the controversial ideas of feminists who believe that women are inherently more nurturing and therefore can build a more cooperative government. Instead, ... Read More

Hillary Clinton has always been a favorite politician of mine. Without going into a full on political debate here, I think she has an amazing work ethic and solid ideas for the country. In a recent New York Magazine article entitled “Hillary in Midair,” she comes off as refreshingly normal.
“We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Clinton of her family. “We ... Read More

There's nothing like plot twist hotness. You know what we mean: like seeing Pornstache sans stache or flipping through the "he'll never have a girlfriend" meme, there's a sick thrill from watching people morph from blah to babe. And while I'm personally attracted to older men (like I'm gearing to be some ex-grunge musician's third wife some day) we've collected shots of celebs in their prime looking surprisingly smoking.
Disclaimer: we fully acknowledge ... Read More

We all heard about Obama’s recent faux pas with California attorney general Kamala Harris, him describing her as “by far the best-looking attorney general in the country.” Some of us were turned off, others didn’t think it was such a big deal. Amongst all these opinions, is there actual evidence that telling a female politician how good she looks is bad for her career? Yes, there is! A recent survey done by the Name It, Change It ...

I never thought I’d have to say this, but … does President Obama need to borrow one of Mitt Romney’s binders full of women? Recent appointments for Obama’s second-term cabinet shows a staggering lack of diversity. A now infamous photograph showing the President with his senior advisors – a room full of white men, lounging around in their best business casual – could just as well be a photo of poker night at the Hamptons, as at ...

The election is over, and there are plenty of reasons to celebrate! Besides the re-election of President Barack Obama and “America’s happy warrior” Vice President Joe Biden, this election saw the legalization of gay marriage in Maine and Maryland, the legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado, and more women elected to the Senate than ever before. I hope you spent last night cheering and hugging random strangers in a bar, but ... Read More

The always-controversial Lena Dunham strikes again with a new campaign ad for Barack Obama, in which she compares voting for the first time to losing your virginity.
In the video, called “Your First Time,” Lena says, “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy.” She goes on to list reasons to vote for Obama: health insurance, access to birth control, bringing the troops home from Iraq, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, ...
