UK Feminista, which describes itself as “a ... Read More
Everyone hates Pinterest! News media from the Washington Post to Buzzfeed have been criticizing what Gawker called “the Mormon housewife’s image bookmarking service of choice," and all too often the criticism seems based on the fact that Pinterest is popular with women.Last week, Buzzfeed published an article called “How Pinterest Is Killing Feminism,” arguing that Pinterest is anti-feminist because much of the content is made up of ...

Three members of Pussy Riot who were arrested (Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Ekaterina Samucevic) currently remain in jail as their appeal hearing has been postponed to October 10. This court hearing may be the last chance for the musicians to be set free; alternate option would be sending the women to remote penal detention centers where they fear for their safety.  As this important date for the band approaches, J.D. Samson and Michael ... Read More
  Here at BUST, we are all women in journalism. As an experienced intern with a journalism degree, I’m used to seeing both classrooms and newsrooms full of driven, talented women. It seems only natural that I–and my female classmates and co-workers–belong in this field: we’re ambitious, capable, and damn good at what we do. It’s startling to realize that it would have been near-impossible for young women like us to break into ... Read More
Eve Ensler is a total rock star.See? She’s best known for writing and starring in the groundbreaking play The Vagina Monologues—heck, even your grandparents have probably heard of it. Not being one to rest on her laurels, she founded a nonprofit, V-Day, that combats the epidemic (and yes, folks, it is an epidemic) of sexual and domestic violence happening all around the world. V-Day activists have opened hospitals for abuse survivors in the Democratic ... Read More
 Everyone with a brain and a heart knows that Gloria Steinem is a brilliant, confident, and powerful woman--which is why Rush Limbaugh, who clearly lacks both of these vital organs, “has been calling [Steinem] a 'feminazi' for decades,” as she put it in an awesome short video produced by Open Road Media. “It would be interesting to know how he got that way,” Steinem said, referring to Limbaugh. “I always wonder what happened to ...

Sometimes, when I read about whatever horrible thing televangelist Pat Robertson has said lately, my first instinct is to laugh — so much of what Robertson says seems straight out of the Onion. I saw this graphic going around on Tumblr recently and promptly burst into hysterical giggles:YOU GUYS, FEMINISTS ARE LESBIAN COMMUNIST WITCHES WHO GO AROUND MURDERING MEN AND CHILDREN!!!! But once I calm down, I remember that Robertson is an active political ... Read More
