  I've been known to troll the depths of the internet from time to time in search of recipes involving excessive amounts of Nutella. It's not often that I come across a post that contains both a photograph of a chocolate-hazelnut crepe next to an AK-47. It is exactly this kind of radical dichotomy that summarizes much of the experience for the women of ISIS, as well as their online presence.      The terror group, which stands for The ... Read More

On the phone, things with Ed were going well, which was why I went out with him despite his having what my friend Erica identified as a case of “Jersey face.” His corporate headshot, which he’d sent me upon answering my (totally benign/wholesome) Craigslist ad, featured a slight downward tip of the head, pursed thin lips, jowls pushed up and almost over his collar thanks to the tie, and the brown hair and eyes of a Jewish man with a smidge of ...

After another example of offensive and frustrating conduct from US police, Los Angeles police are investigating whether there was misconduct in the Sept. 11 detainment and handcuffing of Daniele Watts, an actress known for her role in “Django Unchained”.   Watts was stopped after someone reported her and her partner, chef Brian James Lucas, kissing in their car. After refusing to show her ID, Watts was handcuffed, allegedly causing her wrist to ... Read More

Have you ever felt uncomfortable taking a cab with a male driver? How would you feel if another lady was driving instead? Starting Sept. 16, a new cab service called SheRides will be offering cab services for ladies only through their app (which will be available in the Apple Store). Available in Westchester, Long Island and the NYC area, the cabs will be driven by female drivers donning pink scarves, and cater to women exclusively. SheRides was started by Stella ... Read More
In a sea of generic Playboy and Hollywood bombshell calendars, there’s finally a calendar that honors the curvy, beautiful ladies of our lives. It’s rare these days to see women in the media that aren’t Photoshopped and airbrushed into oblivion. Thin bodies are glorified in our society, and too often every other type of body is not given the appreciation and representation they deserve. The portrayal of plus-sized bodies in the mainstream is ... Read More
To be completely honest, Joan Rivers was never my favorite comedienne. Her hard-hitting jokes, told mostly at the expense of famous others (when they weren’t at her own expense) were too sharp-tongued for my taste. I thought of Rivers as overly venomous, sometimes tactless, and largely inappropriate. It wasn’t until I heard of her passing that I realized my latent admiration. In fact, it was the very dislike of her comedy that caused me to like her most; she ... Read More
  Long gone are the glory days of Myspace, where anyone with enough self-devotion and time could HTML their way to incredible levels of social cred and... So we were super psyched when Google announced in June that it would offer free coding lessons to women and minorities interested in learning the trade. But then we were super bummed when Google subsequently closed the application because, duh, so many people wanted to get involved.  Rejection hurts, ... Read More
