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
I don't think I’ve been this interested in Little League baseball since… well, ever.   Mo’ne Davis, a 13-year-old from Philadelphia, threw a two-hitter this past weekend at her team’s opening game at the Little League World Series. For those of you who aren’t familiar with baseball lingo, that’s pretty damn good. Davis is only one of the two female players at the LLWS, and is now the first female pitcher in history to win ...

Haim’s new music video for “My Song 5” is a well-built, star-studded tease of a music video. It’s also safe to say I loved pretty much every minute of it. If you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want me to spoil it for you, STOP READING and watch the video below.The standout, beat heavy track from their debut Days Are Gone creates a pretty dramatic backdrop for a Jerry Springer/Maury Povitch-type show. ...

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
I have a confession to make: I'm a compulsive list-maker. Of course, this isn't always a bad thing; I've learned the hard way that if I don't write something down, I most likely won't do it (or it'll take me weeks, or even months, to get around to). Short, daily to-do lists that split up bigger tasks into smaller incremental actions have been proven time and time again to increase productivity. But I wondered whether list-making was also diminishing my quality of ... Read More
 Is it just me, or has this been the loooonnngest week ever? And the news has certainly not given us much to lift our spirits, what with the tragic turn of events in Ferguson, the loss of some incredible talent, the horrible violence in Israel and Palestine—ugh. I need a hug. If you do, too, (and you're in NYC) head on over to Union Square this Tuesday and get one for free!  No, I don’t mean from those randos outside Forever 21 who write ... Read More

In case you missed it, a fashion shoot by Indian photographer Raj Shetye made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The photo series depicted a model groped in various positions by men on a bus, and was particularly unsettling because of its eerie resemblance to the tragic 2012 gang rape and murder of a 23-year old woman on a bus in Delhi.  The shoot garnered some well-deserved backlash, including some from Bollywood music director Vishal Dadlani, ...
