Meow! It’s Friday! It’s been a long week, and you deserve something for all the hard work you’ve done. You’re awesome.

Oh my gosh, this is everything.
This outtake from Amy Poehler’s new Old Navy commercial is nothing if not a true work of art.
“[It’s] aggressive, it’s dangerous, it’s stupid, and that’s why I like it,” she quips, mocking the lingo of many a pretentious art dealer. The short clip is full of those kinds of gold nuggets, and is a hilarious commentary on the vague, highfalutin language of the art ... Read More

When it comes to female directors we often think of BO$$ ladies like Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, and Sarah Polley, but then…we begin to get stumped. This isn’t because there aren’t passionate women in the film industry, but more so the fact that those women aren’t being put in positions of power.
According to the website womenmakemovies, the statistics about female directors in Hollywood are depressing. In 2013, only 16% of directors, ... Read More

It was nearly three months ago when 22-year-old Elliot Rodgers posted a frightening video on YouTube detailing his plan to “annihilate” women before viciously murdering two female students, four male students, and ultimately himself, at the University of California at Santa Barbara on May 23. The tragedy ignited national debates over gun control and mental health in the U.S. But the bulk of the discussion, facilitated by women under the ... Read More
