Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" comment has lived on in infamy but let's hope that events like Out of the Binders will increase female representation in the workplace and eliminate ridiculous comments like these.Out of the Binders: Symposium on Women Writers Today, aka BinderCon, is a conference promoting leading women in publishing, journalism and entertainment. It aims to counteract the underrepresentation of women and gender nonconforming authors in ... Read More
None of us lady folk really enjoy the pressure the media and cultural norms heap on us to look and act a certain way; however, despite our distaste for societal beauty standards, many of us get fully immersed trying to keep up with the pack. That’s why the Stop the Beauty Madness campaign is so refreshing, and what makes its rise in popularity so exciting.  Robin Rice created the campaign to challenge beauty norms and give viewers the sense that ...

Recently, I saw the film 22 Jump Street and was very annoyed by all the, for lack of a better word, homoerotic (“why not heteroerotic?”) tension between some of the male characters. I was totally hoping for Channing Tatum’s character to get together with Zuke, the blond frat guy. The characters had total chemistry and whoever wrote that script clearly intended for there to be something more-than-friendship going on. Of course, to reinforce the ... Read More
You may or may not be familiar with the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign. If you aren’t, it was a thing on Twitter recently where people tweeted pictures of themselves or their loved ones holding signs that said why we need diverse books. However, it’s sort of lost momentum, and I don’t know about you, but I haven’t noticed a change in the literary landscape as far as representation is concerned. In fact, other than Orange is the New Black, I ... Read More
Looks like sexual predators in the public eye have been getting their comeuppance lately. This time the culprit was Skyler Page, creator of the animated series Clarence on Cartoon Network. We don't often hear of big studios (television is a bit of a boy's club it seems) firing employees for committing sexual assault, but the Network surprised us by firing him after another employee, Emily Partridge, revealed that he had sexually assaulted her. Partridge is a ... Read More
On June 22, Frances Bean Cobain spoke out about Lana Del Rey’s recent comments regarding the glamorization of musicians that die young, specifically her now infamous statement: “I wish I was dead already.”In a series of tweets that tagged @LanaDelRey, Cobain reached out to the singer, saying “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize…I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes ...

I think I can speak for many people when I say reading the Time article "It’s Time to End ‘Rape Culture’ Hysteria" by Caroline Kitchens felt like a punch of fire to the stomach. Reducing a traumatic and life-altering crime like rape to “hysterics” is harmful and dangerous on so many levels, not to mention it is just plain insulting. Hysteria. Hmmm, where have we heard that term before? The term “hysteria” ... Read More
I think it's safe to say that Kristen Bell is awesome. She's one of those celebrities I never mind hearing about, because she has opinions and isn't afraid to share them. Whether it's about her LOVE of sloths, her war against the "pedorazzi" with her husband, Parenthood star Dax Shepherd,  the release of the long-awaited Veronica Mars movie (!!!), or, in this case, one of her tweets to the Republican National Committee. Kristen Bell tweeted this a few ...

Tris (Shailene Woodley) is forced to come of age in a dystopia where individuals are placed into factions based on which of five virtues they value most highly. But when the time comes for Tris to take her own place in society, she turns out to be Divergent, valuing more than one virtue.

 “What are women’s human rights?  Are all women given the same rights?

The organization recently launched a huge-scale art project to raise awareness about what we STILL need to achieve for gender equality. ... Read More
