Unlike most news channels, we really dig CNN. Partly because of their claim on silver fox Anderson Cooper, but mostly because since 2007 every person not busy being Anderson has been tracking down do-gooders worldwide and recognizing their contributions to awesomely important issues. "CNN Heroes: Everyday People Changing the World" is an annual celebration of the power we all possess to cause true change. It also kind of makes you feel a tad selfish for ... Read More
I have learned everything I know from TLC. When looking for a partner: "No, I don't want no scrubs. A scrub is guy that can't get no love from me." When navigating life: "Don't go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to." When and how to creep: "So I creep yeah, just keep it on the down low, said nobody is supposed to know." And yes, I know all of these lyrics by heart.
This is why I am SO EXCITED for ... Read More

I was a little apprehensive to see Sandra Bullock’s Gravity when it hit theaters two weekends ago. Since I’m prone to panic attacks, I didn’t think it was suitable for me to watch a movie where a woman is stuck in space, but despite my feelings, I was completely blown away by Bullock’s performance. As a scared doctor, who didn’t fully know how to handle her space shuttle’s equipment, Bullock’s character was completely ... Read More

President Obama has officially nominated Janet Yellen to be the Chair of the Federal Reserve. If (or WHEN) she’s confirmed, Yellen will be the 15th Chair and the first woman to hold the position, a top position in an absurdly male-dominated field.
Not only this, but she will also be part of another ongoing change in the Fed, the New York Times explains, shifting it “from an institution run by market-wise bureaucrats focused on controlling ... Read More

Although I'm only 22-years-old, I've always wondered what lessons I would teach my daughter if I one day choose to have children. The top three fall along the lines of love yourself unconditionally, be kind, and don't take shit from anyone (it's a work in progress). During my daily internet trolling, I came across another amazing lesson that I could teach my imaginary daughter some day: be inspired - not by Disney princesses or super models - ... Read More

It’s been 76 years since Amelia Earhart hopped in her final, legendary plane and disappeared across the misty Pacific Ocean. Her departure is shrouded in mysterious conspiracy theories (Did she drown? Was she executed on an island where she crash landed? Did she, in fact, survive the flight, change her name and go on living, unbeknownst to us all?).
Part of her legacy is crystal clear, though: how much she effing ruled.
Let’s first talk about what ... Read More

In the most epic standoff since Marilyn Wildflower's pedophile takedown, Anna Graham scared off a pair of muggers using just her no-bull attitude.
Anna was smoking in her pajamas outside her home last week when it happened. Two men approached, robbed her friend’s nearby parked car, pulled out a hand gun, and told Anna to give them her wallet.
The 54-year-old woman responded with unbelievable (and probably inadvisable) guts: “Are you kidding ... Read More

I can’t get enough of Wendy Davis – her no-bullshit attitude, unwavering resolve, colossal intellect, passion, and warmth, not to mention her seriously KILLER sneakers – but she also makes me crave more stories about the original badass women in politics, AKA the suffragettes.
Thankfully, this hankering is right on time, because a safe belonging to members of the Suffrage Movement was cracked open Wednesday in New York ... Read More

Let’s be real here. Reality TV, though lucrative for TV networks, usually doesn’t have a lot to offer the general public, other than something to mindlessly run in front of our eyeballs while we try to forget that today happened. But hark! A beam of intelligent, inspiring reality TV is shining through the mass of "People With Lots of Babies" shows!Sundance Channel’s Push Girls documents the life of best friends Tiphani, Auti, Angela, and Mia. ...
