Ah, August. It’s that time of year when summer starts winding down, kids scramble to finish (and/or fake) their summer reading reports, and every lifestyle blog ever offers its unsolicited advice to incoming college freshman. My greatest guilty pleasure is scrolling through these posts as if I have no idea how college works or how to prepare for diving headfirst into a cesspool of hormones and questionable decisions.    One of my new favorite ...

I’m a big fan of Cafepress, a website where you can buy knick knacks and memorabilia with slogans, images, and sayings, many of which are quite original. However, I like funny things, and the problem with Cafepress is that its humor section is more often than not full of jokes at the expense of one oppressed group or another. That’s why I’m super thrilled to have recently been introduced to Redbubble, which has amazing, high-quality merchandise ... Read More
 If Holly Andres isn’t on your radar, you’re missing out. Andres is a Portland-based photographer whose work feels akin to the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Cindy Sherman, but all the more fresh and exciting. Her photographs often explore the tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. “I’m interested in the cognitive dissonance that can result from employing formal elements such as bright ...

I'm not sure if it was the multiple mimosas or lugging around a heavy-ass swag bag all day, but I've been wandering around in a fashion- and beauty-addled daze since last weekend. Is anyone else in the same boat? In case you missed the first-ever (EVER!) BUST Craftacular's Primped last Sunday, May 4th, read on to be overcome by jealousy of all the amazing shit you missed. Like, really.Shoppers lined up around the block an hour before the doors opened to score ... Read More
We have told you about Feminist Playing Cards before, but after seeing this AWESOME illustration by artist Michael DeNicola, blogged on March 6th, it reminded us to share the work of Homoground once again. Feminist Playing Cards is a brilliant and beautiful component of a larger media project called Homoground, a growing company run by music-loving LBGTQ folks, "dedicated to promoting equality & visibility for all people through music and art while maintaining ...

  “Cute” isn’t a word I’d use to describe most street art. It also isn’t a word I’d usually apply to feminist art. Both types of countercultural expression are about breaking down prejudices and confronting the public in ways that are moving and sometimes unsettling. My favorite work of feminist art that involves menstruation is Judy Chicago’s Red Flag, a photolithograph of a woman pulling out a tampon. The image is ... Read More
It's been many moons in the making, but we're excited to announce the opening of LADIES REPRESENT!, an all-female, all-awesome art show opening next week at Superchief Gallery in New York's Lower East Side. In collaboration with digital art and cultural collective Superchief, we've curated an amazing lineup of female artists from all over the U.S. Works range from the intricate wheat pastes of street artist Swoon to E.V. Day's gravity-defying installations and new ... Read More
Do you like your feminism fun, crafty, and creative? We do!  That’s why we were thrilled to discover Midge Belickis’s art series, “365 Ways of Feminism.” Midge, 24, is a freelance graphic designer, feminist, and recent FIT grad.

Lipstick, fists, high ... Read More
Perhaps there are some of you out there who, like me, still don't quite know what "zine" means. No worries, here's a quick explanation: "zine" (pronounced zeehn) is short for magazine, but that doesn't fully capture the spirit of a zine. To use the words of NYC Feminist Zinefest, a zine is "like a small, pocket-sized emissary of ideas".  But these definitions will only get you so far. This Saturday, February 25th, at the Brooklyn Commons, come ... Read More
