If there is one thing of which Hillary Clinton has convinced me, it’s that she seriously gives a shit about making women’s voices heard. She is constantly making strides towards equality, but tomorrow she will specifically zero in on the voices of young women around the globe. Thanks to the Clinton Foundation, a new lecture series has been born to give Clinton and young women the opportunity to connect and discuss. Girls: A No Ceiling Conversation ... Read More

My day was just ruined by a little viral video about men learning the science of seducing women. This video isn’t about how to get to know women, or listen to what they want or need, it's about straight up TRICKING THEM INTO BEING SEXUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY DEPENDENT ON YOU. Gosh, I know that sounds like the perfect relationship for every woman everywhere! I especially love that the video credits women’s super basic DNA and uncontrollable primal ... Read More

I stumbled across Menstruation Barbie on Instagram while in a fury of feminist rage, reaching my breaking point with sorority pledges and first date live streams. My search began with a hunt for subversive Barbie art (fav pastime!) and I am so damn thankful that I ended up with this sassy lass! Not only is Crampy Carla refreshing and sassy, her posts are encouraging and empowering to women everywhere.The mastermind behind ‘Crampy Carla’ is the ... Read More

James Franco is a white, heterosexual, wealthy, educated male. He is a multifaceted artist and has loads of talent that he spreads to many, many projects. He has received endless accolades and awards for his creative efforts and shows that actors can have substance and are a wealth of ideas and thoughts. However, he is a super privileged dude who just defaced one of my favorite female artists.
When I first heard about James Franco’s opening at PACE Gallery I ... Read More

Women born with a rare disease called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome just got the greatest gift of all: A VAGINA. Although women with this condition have vulvas, they lack a vaginal cavity and thus live without many common pleasures of a vagina: masturbation, menstruation, sex and a deep, psychological connection with a coochie. Fortunately, by applying a technique developed in the 1990s, Scientists have discovered the ability grow a synthetic ... Read More

The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger is the love child of beautiful duo Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. GOASTT brings together free flowing hippie vibes and cult-ish beauty in their new video “Animals,” a song off their upcoming album Midnight Sun (out 4/29). Although the video features heavy-handed trippy editing and weird 60’s revival aesthetics, it works perfectly with the band's psychedelic sound.Muhl told Stereogum,“It’s a ... Read More

Rumors surrounding pap smears are enough to chill any woman’s bones and make us clench our knees together for days. All it takes is gossip about a scary doctor or the feeling of cold utensils down south, and a whole group of girls are traumatized from going to get a check up for at least 10 years. The really freakin’ scary part is that when women don’t get pap smears, they are unable to get the preventative care that they need.The American ... Read More

All of my wildest dreams just came true. Hillary Clinton and Pussy Riot have united and will now take the world by storm.
Okay, maybe they aren’t plotting world domination, but at least they have met and are now definitely friends. The controversial Russian pop duo Pussy Riot posed with Clinton backstage at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit last week, and it renewed my faith in humanity.
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina of ... Read More

I grew up in Tennessee. I own cowboy boots and say y’all, a lot. I have never gone hunting, but I’ve eaten tons of weird meat in cabins and enjoyed it. I also had to hustle my liberal, LGBT, feminist, atheist way through the hallways of a very conservative, religious, republican high school right in the center of the Bible belt.
I remember being outraged for most of my time in Nashville. I protested when the state defunded the last remaining Planned ... Read More

Lorde learned a lesson last year after criticizing some of her fellow pop stars Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez for having “unfeminist lyrics” or for being too “unobtainable and flawless.” It's safe to say that Lorde wasn’t trying to be catty or harsh, and seems more like the kind of girl who was more interested in holding people accountable and reminding us that celebrities aren’t perfect. We know she has definitely changed her ... Read More
