Tall and blond, Betty Ann Westlund wears her mechanic’s jacket with ease. And why not? The 30-year-old founder of Oakland, CA’s Lady Luck Car Club (LLCC for short)—a women-only collective of vintage auto enthusiasts—more than proved her automotive acumen when she completely rebuilt her 1949 Kaiser Traveler. “I found the Kaiser in a junkyard,” she says. “It was stripped, no steering wheel, no brakes. When I got it, I was feeling pretty broken as an ... Read More

It grieved us to discover, that 16-year-old high school junior, Maren Sanchez, was fatally stabbed in Milford, Connecticut this morning, because she simply exercised her human right to say "no."
Just hours before prom night, Maren was stabbed by an angered ex-boyfriend, after she declined to go to the prom with him. The police reports are abhorrent; witnesses said that the suspect shoved Maren down the stairs, attempted to choke her, and then ... Read More
“Well-behaved women seldom make history” is a tale as old as time. This can be applied to women traveling and making independent, wayward decisions. We’ve all been told not to walk alone at night, to avoid strangers, to keep ourselves safe and protected because the world is full of danger! I’m not suggesting that it isn’t full of danger…I’m just saying it is not our burden to live in fear.
It isn’t the 18th ... Read More

Rabbits are ... Read More
The first time I walked the streets of Manhattan alone at night, I was 18 and terrified. I now know that I was walking from the West to the East village, and through one of the safest parts of the city, but at the time I was just a doe-eyed youth and non-NYC native, afraid of being kidnapped, or groped, or probably just looked at the wrong way.On that night almost four years ago, I called my best friend and made her talk to me for the entire 20 minute walk, so ...

The one resolution that always makes its way on to my New Year's list is: read more books (...and watch more movies, and listen to more music, and see more comedy...) by women. In terms of authors, there's nothing like discovering a writer who knows just how to express everything I'm feeling, while dispensing with those pesky monologues about my gender's lasting inferiority (looking at you, Hemingway). But there are only so many Plath anthologies or Woolf novellas ... Read More
