   The relationship between women and fashion is complicated, or at the very least, layered. We all need to buy clothes. That one’s obvious, or like the first layer. The second level of this cake (I’ve made it a cake) is the clothes that we buy reflect how we are judged. Teen girls all over the internet are counseling each on how to dress like a certain persona (i.e. Wear hemp bracelets if you want to be a surfer). At the top of our cake ... Read More
Calling all sluts! Need to register to vote? Look no further. You can Rock The Slut Vote right here. This is a movement which was created to “fight the GOP effort to bully, subjugate and silence women,” and “wrest the power from the word slut and help women get informed, get involved, get registered and vote”. The word slut was used publicly by Rush Limbaugh earlier this year to describe Sandra Fluke, who testified on behalf of ... Read More
As a woman, I love when rich white men with a chip on their shoulders limit my reproductive rights and tell me that I can’t marry the woman I love. Since I’m still paying for Eve’s first sin, I haven’t yet had the chance to pray the gay away. But I’m sure I’ll be okay once I find a guy to keep me barefoot and pregnant. Those poor emotional creatures who say otherwise are simply distracted by “shiny objects”, because ... Read More
There’s a woman in a small village who, against all odds, dares to challenge authority and ride a motorbike to fight crime. And no, I’m not talking about Lisbeth Salander. The 50-year-old Zarifa Qazizadah, who was forced to marry at 12 and now has 15 children and 36 grandchildren, is Afghanistan’s sole female village chief. That's a feat in itself, but the BBC reports that this brave leader has even remortgaged her home to pay for the posts and ... Read More
Writer/producer Jon Avnet (of Black Swan and Fried Green Tomatoes fame) and director Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs) have teamed with YouTube to produce a series of five- to eight-minute dramas for the site’s new lady-friendly, online-only channel, Wigs. (Its logo, above, looks a bit like it's advertising a fancy new OB/GYN clinic, but we'll try not to hold it against them). Since Avnet and Garcia have serious Hollywood clout, they were able to rope in an ... Read More
Ads like the hilariously sleazy one above are sadly common in print advertising, which loves to position women in degrading scenarios that, 9 times out of 10, have absolutely nothing to do with the product being sold. In 2002, Scott A. Lukas, a college professor, created the Gender Ads Project, a website that analyzes women's roles in advertising, with nearly 4,000 examples.The project breaks down the ads into different categories, ...

It’s no secret that we love us some tough ladies here at BUST. So Melanie Fiona’s latest video for her track “Watch Me Work” is right up our alley. The video is a jarring, fast-paced mash-up of TV and movie clips. It features iconic ladies in pop-culture like Pam Grier in Coffy, the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad in Kill Bill, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in their “Bitches get stuff done!” clip from SNL, and Tracie Thoms in Death ...

Imagine you’re on the elliptical at the gym or biking to work thinking about Snooki’s pregnancy, Obama, and global warming when you feel a twitch right under your biking shorts. The good twitch. You start to breath a little deeper and the tingles start building, like the rapid ticks of a time bomb. You know what’s going on with your body, but why here? Why NOW? No, this isn’t my attempt at a BUST One-Handed Read; a new Kinsey Institute ... Read More
My first interaction with military culture was in high school, when lots of my friends signed up for the JROTC program. It was cool to see them marching in the early mornings with the flag, dressed in their crisp tan uniforms. My young feminist self loved to see my girlfriends doing drills, out running among the athletic boys. I thought that the military had a culture of equality, and I thought that soldiers didn't go to war to necessarily protect the nationalist ... Read More
 You’ve undoubtedly heard that women are born with all the eggs they’ll ever produce—once they’re gone, you’re SOL if you want to have kids. (Unlike men, who can theoretically reproduce until, and possibly after, their last breath.) Well, you and I were misinformed. Back in 2004, scientists found egg-producing stem cells in the ovaries of adult mice. But new research from Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital has shown ... Read More
