The engagement of Britain’s Prince William to Catherine Middleton was announced this morning by royal officials. This engagement is one that has been long anticipated by spectators, the royal family, and William himself.

The couple has had an on again and off again relationship ever since, ... Read More
Hats off to filmmaker Cassie Jaye for exposing the truth about abstinence-only programs, the stories of teenagers who buy into it, and its consequences, in her documentary, Daddy I Do. The film provides a range of personal accounts, from unwed young mothers to the founder of The Silver Ring Thing (faith-based abstinence), private interviews, and alarming statistics. We learn that The Purity Ball, for example, a Cinderella-like ball where young girls pledge ... Read More

Teaching girls to play loud instruments, form a band, command a stage, and all-around empower themselves in many ways is what rock camp is all about. Of all the feminist causes near and dear to my heart, rock camp is one of the most inspiring and consistently rewarding-and I can't help but wish I had spent a week at camp as a kid, middle-schooler, or teen. That's why it's a great idea to support Girls Rock Camp Alliance's benefit show at Park Slope's Rock Shop. ... Read More
How do you make a zine? Why do you make a zine?  How did you get into zine-making in the first place?  What other zines do you read? Where can I get my zine photocopied? How are zines distributed? Where are zines reviewed? Where can you go to buy zines? How do you pronounce it? And how can I find out more? Be you a seasoned vet, a zi-curious newbie, or an unrelated browser in the right place at the right time, you're ...

  Let’s say you’ve decided to take a mid-afternoon lie-down and have put your iTunes on shuffle because you’re too tired to make that perfectly relaxing playlist. You’re just about dozing off as the Fleet Foxes play, and then WABAM! Soulja Boy starts playing. Or, let’s say you and your friends are three sheets to the wind and you just know that a Motown sing-along is inevitable except oh no! You’re drunk and who has the ... Read More
