Women’s issues have been an intense topic in this election, and our rights are important, especially considering we make up more than half of the population. In this awesome new PSA, entitled “You Don’t Own Me,” a multitude of women stand up for--and lip synch!--to Lesley Gore’s song of the same name (Lesley herself appears at the beginning to 'approve this message'!). As the vid’s description states,
“Women, ... Read More

BUST cover girl and all-around awesome lady Tavi Gevinson was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, and we just about plotzed. Jimmy even held up the Aug/Sept issue of BUST, featuring Tavi in all her glory.
We have such a lady crush on Tavi and her site Rookie. Both do an amazing job of starting conversations about what it's like to be a teenage girl, and about feminism. Tavi chatted with Fallon about her new book Rookie Yearbook One, her hilarious ... Read More

Many of the Rookie regulars were there to read excerpts from the book, which is a compilation of the first year's posts from rookiemag.com. The quality of the writing on Rookie is impressive, and we ... Read More

I tried to fight it, and I tried to deny it, but I can't. I love Tavi Gevinson (Maybe you've heard of her? She was on the cover of some magazine called BUST) . Even more than Tavi, I luuuurve Rookie, which is why I was sure to preorder Rookie Yearbook One. For those of you who don't know (shame on you!), Rookie was founded a year ago today by Ms. Gevinson to give teen girls content that they weren't being given in, say, Seventeen or Teen ... Read More

BUST’s current cover girl Tavi Gevinson really has come into her own. The sixteen year old has gone from an adolescent fashion blogger to a mature pop culture curator (she started ROOKIE online magazine, soon to be a book this fall) in no time flat. Tavi hit the last stop on the Rookie Road Trip this Sunday, bringing her personal brand of magic to the City of Angeles.

Sixteen-year-old fashion-blogging phenomenon Tavi Gevinson has already carved out a prominent place for herself in pop culture, appearing in the front rows of Paris fashion shows, the pages of The New York Times, and her own TED talk. Here, she opens up about girls, grinding, and getting shit done.
I'm a 42-year-old woman, and I work for a 16-year-old girl. This seems normal to me, as my philosophy on bosses has always been that I won’t work ... Read More
