I usually agree with the Internet’s recognition and subsequent celebration of all the incredible women who run the world: Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Tina Fey, Hillary Clinton, and so many more.
But I’ve been disappointed in the past by its failure to appreciate one of the baddest ladies in all the land, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
During the recent high-profile rulings on DOMA (joyous!) and the VRA (devastating ... Read More

Michael: Did I just wake you up? I didn’t even know you were home.
Lindsay: No, Michael, I don’t just sleep all day.
Narrator: Actually, Lindsay was so upset at Michael that she tried meditating to calm herself but ended up taking a two-hour angry nap.
I have a confession to make y'all. I am 100% obsessed with tumblr (don't let the intentional lack of capitalization denote anything less than total reverence). I spend HOURS sorting through the ... Read More

If you've been following The Battle of the Fake Geek Girl at all, you probably already know who ALB is. Her flaming pink hair of righteousness has been all over the Web since her succinct video takedown of misogyny in the geek world,"Fake Geek Girls" debuted. IRL, ALB is Angelina, a Canadian illustrator and blogger. She was kind enough to answer a couple of my questions over the Web (for we are nothing if not women of our time). Here's some of what she has to ... Read More

If you’ve ever had a long mansplanation given to you, you could find yourself needing to vent about it. (“Mansplaining” is when someone gives you a patronizing and often extraneous explanation of something that you already know about, assuming that your pretty little woman brain wouldn’t have this knowledge already because, well, you’re a woman).
Luckily, there is a Tumblr where you can share these special mansplanation moments with ... Read More

There’s been a lot of talk lately about Internet bullying and the damaging effects it has on those who are targeted. Remember the story of Amanda Todd, the teen who committed suicide in October after years of constant online and physical shaming? Google “teen commits suicide after online bullying” and you will get over 4.5 million hits--a staggering amount. That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to damage done to people of any age ... Read More

Not much makes sense in life, and not much seems fair, but my new favorite Tumblr, Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings, helps validate life's little insecurities by a) poking fun of them and taking away their power and b) capturing them accurately enough to reassure millennial bundles of anxiety that we’re not alone in our neurosis.
Peruse, laugh, cry, laugh some more.

In the week leading up to the election, hundreds of artists nationwide are coming together to create nonpartisan images that remind you to go vote on November 6. The project is open to all kinds of art, which makes for some interesting results. There’s what you’d expect — patriotic reminders on an American flag and fancy red, white, and blue lettering. And then there’s the really, wonderfully weird — Abe Lincoln in a bunny suit and “Go Vote” spelled ... Read More

From the moment I saw I Was Told There’d Be Cake on the bookshelf, I knew Sloane Crosley was a girl after my heart and taste buds. As a 17 year-old, I have looked to my fellow New Yorker’s escapades as letters from an imaginary older sister. Although I am interested in a career as a style journalist, I also am very interested in keeping up with all of my mini-essays that I hash out in my own diary.
Sloane herself is part ... Read More
