Julia Louis-Dreyfus appears on the most recent cover of Rolling Stone Magazine wearing nothing but the preamble of the U.S Constitution - and perhaps a little more. Despite the misprinted John Hancock signature sitting right above Louis-Dreyfus's luminescent derriere, the image itself is rather shocking. At first I was a bit skeptical about the productiveness of Louis-Dreyfus's unexpected nudity, especially the photograph of a white-wigged fellow tattooing her ... Read More
All of my wildest dreams just came true. Hillary Clinton and Pussy Riot have united and will now take the world by storm.  Okay, maybe they aren’t plotting world domination, but at least they have met and are now definitely friends. The controversial Russian pop duo Pussy Riot posed with Clinton backstage at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit last week, and it renewed my faith in humanity.  Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina of ...

Lorde learned a lesson last year after criticizing some of her fellow pop stars Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez for having “unfeminist lyrics” or for being too “unobtainable and flawless.” It's safe to say that Lorde wasn’t trying to be catty or harsh, and seems more like the kind of girl who was more interested in holding people accountable and reminding us that celebrities aren’t perfect. We know she has definitely changed her ... Read More
In case you've been lucky enough to evade the ignorance displayed by the total idiots who shared shockingly casual racist comments about Lorde's boyfriend James Lowe, good for you. Just to give you and idea of this bullshit, when you being to type "Lorde's boyfriend" into Google, one of the top suggestions is "Lorde's boyfriend is ugly."  DO PEOPLE HAVE NO HEARTS? We think they're pretty cute.Lowe chose to step into this mostly unwanted ...

We already had to stand up and support that rape culture is a real thing and not a product of "female hysteria" this week. Now, thanks to Zerlina Maxwell's #rapecultureiswhen, we've discovered there might be a few people that agree with us. "Rape culture" identifies the overwhelming normalization of sexual violence against women as a part of the cultural psyche, extending the cause of rape as an epidemic beyond individuals, to a culture that supports the ...

Feminism has once again managed to triple axel itself into a mire of contradictions on Twitter. One user summed up their frustration with #IDontNeedFeminism by tacking on #incrediblystupidhashtags. Taken literally...#IDontNeedFeminism and #incrediblystupidhashtags are essentially synonymous.  One user actually spelled "feminism" wrong in a tweet with the hashtag "#educateyourself." YIKES.This trend is a twist on the amazing "I Need Feminism Because" ... 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 ...

  The feminist Twitter goddess Suey Park, responsible for December’s activist hashtag #NotYourAsianSidekick, has a special gift for us: #ActivistPickUpLines. From its inception, feminism has been a complicated uphill battle with its fair share of internal conflict, not to mention that we live in a world where people shy away from the movement because of prejudice and stereotypes; it’s quite refreshing to see some witty feminist conversation making ...

  The beloved sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” sparked outrage this week with an episode that featured three white stars (Colbie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, and Josh Radnor) dressed as masters of the “Slap of a Million Exploding Suns,” the episode’s central comic conceit. Oh, and the actors donned what many are calling "yellowface," dressing up as stereotypical Asian individuals for laughs.   With the recent outrage over ... Read More
Meghan Murphy of Feminist Current has declared that Twitter may be “a necessary evil”, but is “a horrible place for feminism.” Murphy explains that the platform encourages bullying and oversimplifies complex theories. She finds that Twitter is not representative of the entire spectrum of feminists (“The women who built this movement….are not on Twitter”). Murphy concludes that though “hashtag activism” can be ...
