Two years ago, an idiopathic neuropathy entered Liz Jackson’s life, transforming a hustle and bustle metropolitan lifestyle into one of unexpected instability. Yet, while she has faced many moments of debility, weakness and despair have never been in the cards for Liz. With this new fate, Liz has taken her challenges and transformed them into focus, patience, strength, and most importantly, activism.  Since then, Liz has come a long way, and she ... Read More
I can’t even go into detail about how much I hate Terry Richardson. If you have somehow missed the seemingly endless list of allegations of sexual assault, you must live under a rock of denial. This guy is a grade-A creep and gives such a bad name to fashion photography, it taints the whole industry in my opinion. His photos also exhibit little to no technical skill or actual taste. Models Rie Rasmussen, Jamie Peck, Jenna Sauers and Charlotte Waters have all ... Read More
March 8th is International Women's Day, yet we still have A LOT to get done before we can confidently say that women around the world are receiving equal rights. In fact, there is a war against the pride and beauty of women's genitals going on right now — the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). You can learn more and sign a petition to help end this horrifying practice here.  Note: the video below and some of the materials linked to ... Read More
While Wikipedia and Twitter have gender gaps, the one website that has a substantial amount of women working is none other than the petition website Change.org. As Forbes Women reports, women make up 57% of Change’s users, signing 66% of petitions and even starting 46% of the petitions online. The 2007 startup, Change.org, is now certified as a B corporation. Just last year the website generated 100,000 petitions and 10 million users. In an exclusive ... Read More
  One of the biggest controversies recently surrounding the Tour de France has to do with Lance Armstrong and drug abuse by participants. But one major controversy surrounding the race is barely talked about: the lack of female participants. Actually, women aren’t even allowed to race in the Tour de France, so it’s less of an issue of participation and more of an issue of straight-up discrimination. Some women, such as Kathryn Bertine, SKN National ... Read More
 Athletes, moms, and activists have become unanimously pissed off at rapper Rick Ross and his explicitly date-rapey lyrics. The disturbing line in Ross' song, "UOENO" is as follows:"Put molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it/ Took her home and enjoyed that, she ain't even know it."Ross is currently the face of the Reeboks Classics series, a line of sneakers that takes pride in its roots and history. "It takes a lot to make a classic" declares the ... Read More
Later this month, NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit plans to shoot an episode that features convicted rapist, Mike Tyson, as a guest star. Tyson will play Reggie Rhodes, “a murderer on death who is also the victim of a difficult childhood.” You may recall that the boxer physically abused his wife, Robin Givens. Or that in 1991, he raped Miss Black America contestant, Desiree Washington, in a hotel room in Indianapolis.If you love SVU ... Read More
With over 37, 400 signatures and counting, New York writer Sabrina Lamb has succeeded in getting Oxygen to drop their heinous show proposal “All My Babies’ Mamas.” The cancelled show would have followed Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo and his eleven children with their ten mothers. The Parents Television Council said the show was “grotesquely irresponsible and exploitative.” When Lamb first saw a promotion for the program, her “blood ... Read More
You might have heard about Oxygen’s newly proposed reality show, “All My Babies’ Mamas,” which spotlights rapper Shawty Lo’s eleven children and their ten different mothers.  If that premise wasn’t appalling enough, the entire show is styled after cheesy dating game show parodies such as Flavor of Love and Rock of Love. Each woman is given a ridiculous nickname, meant to seem playful or funny I guess, that includes the ... Read More
