“I think most people haven’t seen sexy in a wheelchair” –Mia  The Sundance Channel’s new series, Push Girls, documents the lives of four friends living in Hollywood--Angela, Auti, Tiphany, and Mia. No, they aren’t rich housewives, celebrities with a sex tape, or former B-list actors trying to make a comeback: they are paraplegic and quadriplegic women, and they are out to dispel any of your previously contrived notions ...

In my head, the executives of movie and TV studios are conniving, soulless people who tap their fingers together while squashing creative ideas and forcibly removing the soul of every good show. Turns out, they are less "evil Mr. Burns from The Simpsons" and more "Ministry of Truth from Nineteen Eighty-Four," carefully misleading the public with euphemisms and propaganda. When the news broke last week that Sony Pictures had fired Dan Harmon as the showrunner of ... Read More
After reading every day about more backwards policies being advocated across the U.S., it’s easy to forget that progressive and liberal agendas sometimes succeed, too (just not here, lately). Earlier this month, Argentina passed a thoroughly modern law that changes many of the restrictions transgender individuals previously faced. Now, individuals can apply to change their gender on official government documents (namely IDs) without first undergoing a ... Read More
Over the last several months, we’ve seen one example after another of Republican politicians introducing (and passing) bills that strip away women’s access to affordable birth control, abortion, equal pay, and more. Still, this weekend, former news anchor Campbell Brown, apparently spurred by Obama's commencement speech at Barnard, accused him of adopting a condescending tone while trying to court women voters. What's more, she questioned whether or ... Read More
Last week, we heard that the next season of 30 Rock will be its last. What’s more, the season will be short—only 13 episodes. But don’t worry: if you are experiencing the early stages of Tina Fey withdrawal, The Nerdist podcast has the remedy. This week, host Chris Hardwick shared an hour-long interview with Fey, which can be streamed online or downloaded for free on iTunes. Fey is possibly the most famous guest to ever appear on the weekly ... Read More
  Yesterday evening, the White House released a statement saying that the President will likely veto HR 4970, the House Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) reauthorization bill. The Senate recently passed its version of the VAWA, updating it to include protection for Native American women, LGBT victims, immigrants, and college students. The Senate’s bill was passed 68-31, with 15 Republicans voting for it. The House bill will not only retract these ... Read More
Mother’s Day is only a couple of days away, but there's still time for you to make a crafty, handmade gift for the moms in your life. Here are some great tutorials for gifts that can be made after a quick trip to the craft store (or your craft closet). 1.  Easy, breezy summer scarf This only requires some scissors and a soft, large T-shirt!

For many of you, summer means lazy days at the park, beach, or rooftop. (Or, as Dr. Spaceman once prescribed for Liz, "a little R&R. Rum and Ritalin.") For me, it means another three months of summer reruns. It also means that the major TV networks are finalizing and announcing fall lineups and dragging me down a hole of anxiety, relief, and disappointment. (It’s possible I’m far too emotionally invested in TV.) We told you yesterday about Mindy ... Read More
It’s no secret that this TV season saw a rise in the number of female-led sitcoms, and it looks like this lovely trend will continue into next season, too. After renewing New Girl for a second season, FOX has added another quirky-girl comedy to its lineup, created by/starring/produced by none other than BUST cover gal Mindy Kaling! Fans of Kaling know that she has the experience and talent to make a sitcom work. Since the early days of the American Office, ... Read More
  A few weeks ago when we let you know about an awesome music camp for girls that takes place in New York this summer, I was jealous. “We need that for adults!” I thought. If you had a similar reaction, then you are in luck. The Music Masters Camp Series just announced its first Women’s Music Summit, which will take place this summer at the Full Moon Resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains from August 27 through 31. The summit is a ... Read More
