Ever since the 2009 presidential election in Iran was tainted by accusations of fraud, the country has been overwhelmed with protests and violence. Recently, opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi issued a statement declaring what solutions he thought would remedy the current crisis. Many female activists felt that his demands, as well as other opposition leaders, did not address the discrimination women face on a daily basis. In response, they issued a statement ... Read More
Israeli start-up company, Minimally Invasive Mastopexy (MIM), thinks that breast implants are so passé. Wouldn't you rather just have a surgically implanted bra? Their breast support kit, cleverly titled Cup&Up, promises to "reshape, support and lift breast soft tissue in a much more minimally invasive manner than today's cosmetic breast surgery". The problem with today's traditional breast surgeries, according to MIM CEO Adi Cohen, is they don't take ... Read More

A few days ago, a 50-year-old Taiwanese man was arrested for tricking over 20 women into having sex with him. Huh? Hsu Hsien-ming, a stock market analyst, duped women online by presenting himself as a 30-year-old man named Angor. Using photos of a young male model, Hsu told the women that he was the son of a Taiwanese father and French mother, and was desperately looking to marry a Taiwanese woman. The catch: you have to sleep with my dad. Hsu, as Angor, told the ... Read More

The big difference with fibanserin as opposed to Viagra, is that it targets the brain ... Read More
Many Democrats are beginning to feel torn about the involvement of U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The tug-of-war lies between their wishes to bring our soldiers home, and their concern for the safety of Afghan women.

Last Friday, Ewan McGregor appeared on the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson to promote his newest film, "Men Who Stare at Goats". During the interview, Craig Ferguson mentioned how McGregor has done a lot of nude scenes in his films, to which McGregor responded: "I don't find it embarrassing. I like to do it. Women are always expected to be naked in films, but I like to try and do it so they are not naked. It's a feminist thing that I do." Check out the video ... Read More
As a child of the 80's, it was common for my friends and I to debate on who was cooler: Jem and the Holograms or Barbie and the Rockers. While it becomes a close tie when faced with the glittery makeup and neon clothing, the sugary sweet pop-rock tunes, and the explosive hairstyles, I'm thinking Jem may have outdone Barbie on one important factor: her voice. Jem's character was made up of not one, but two rocking ladies. Samantha Newark provided her speaking voice, ... Read More
