My day was just ruined by a little viral video about men learning the science of seducing women. This video isn’t about how to get to know women, or listen to what they want or need, it's about straight up TRICKING THEM INTO BEING SEXUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY DEPENDENT ON YOU. Gosh, I know that sounds like the perfect relationship for every woman everywhere! I especially love that the video credits women’s super basic DNA and uncontrollable primal ... Read More

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of the MSNBC show Morning Joe, tries to share a voice of reason about the media's over- stretching of the missing Malaysian flight, but is continually thwarted by co- host and general jerk, Joe Scarborough.
In the clip, while Brzezinski is visibly annoyed at Scarborough’s newest speculation that the plane could be somewhere other than the Indian Ocean, she waits her turn to state her opinion that it is time for a topic ... Read More

Decades ago, three brave women broke into the male-dominated and hyper exclusive field of war journalism in order to establish their names and place within history. These heroines overcame dangerous front lines, misogyny and their own fear to establish more then just a “woman’s angle.”The documentary NO JOB FOR A WOMAN: THE WOMEN WHO FOUGHT TO REPORT WWII follows the paths of wire service reporter Ruth Cowan, magazine reporter Martha Gellhorn, ...

Today, the Huffington Post brought us a lovely dollop of wisdom in the form of men sharing which women's clothing trends they hate the most. Gee, what a thought-provoking and completely valid discussion! I sure do love thinking about all of the women and girls who will forsake their personal style after reading about how some douchebag thinks peplum tops look like maternity wear!
Let's take a look at a few of the especially imbecilic gems the menfolk of the ... Read More

Ahh Wikipedia...truly my oldest and most treasured childhood friend. Without ye, so many A- papers would be mere C+’s...So many useless facts would remain unknown...Truly a bleak world would exist if not for Wikipedia. Yet, statistics show that less than 15% of Wikipedia contributors are female. Could it be that my heart and soul has been devoted the most patriarchal website of them all?! Say it ain’t so!
The debate on why such a huge gender gap exists ... Read More
Glasgow based band Chvrches. Singer Lauren Mayberry is pictured center.
Female musicians have always been forced to put up with all sorts of objectification that their male counterparts are not as frequently subjected to. Some, like Rihanna, Britney, and Miley, submit to it and turn it into a part of their image and marketing strategy. Others are less inclined to embrace it.
Such is the case with Lauren Mayberry of Scottish synthpop group Chvrches. In an editorial ... Read More
Since a study came out about the long term effects of high heels on women's health, I’ve noticed a slew of essays, blog posts, and editorials on the cultural implications of what we choose to put on our feet. After scouring the web for insights, it’s hard to determine exactly how women feel about high heels.
Buzzfeed reports that shoes were used to “immobilize women” starting in Imperial China and the Middle Ages. From ... Read More

Last week, we shared with you The Most Misogynistic Article of All Time: Return of Kings “24 Signs She’s a Slut”. Right on cue, the “Male Rights Activists” (MRAs) squirmed out of the woodwork, informing every advocate of women's rights of just how wrong they are. Think I’m joking? I wish! But you can’t make this stuff up people!
Let's have a look-see at some of the most memorable gems from the diamond mine that was ... Read More

It’s always great to start off the day with a blood-boiling-ly bigoted piece of writing. It fuels the flames of feminism and reminds me why I still care, and why everyone else should care, about women's issues. Today, my inspiration wasn't hard to find: I bring to you one man’s take on how to spot a "slut." As it turns out, top-tier news source ReturnOfKings.com is offering up 24 simple signs that you can look for if you think a gal ... Read More

The Internet confuses me. On the one hand, I’ve found an amazing feminist community full of support and open-mindedness. On the other hand, trolls. It’s gotten to the point where I almost can’t read comments on articles out of fear of MRA (Men’s Rights Activists) doing their thing. Sure, free speech is important and everyone is entitled to one’s own opinion. But I simultaneously feel hope and disappointment in humanity the more ... Read More
