On Sunday, 400,000 people lined up along the west side of Central Park. They came from New York and Wisconsin and Canada and the Republic of Georgia. They had hand-drawn signs on cereal boxes and mass produced posters advocating divestment from fossil fuels. They had stilts, umbrellas, macaws, ukuleles, stickers, pins, and whistles. In the end, so many people showed up and clogged the march route that the crowd had to be dispersed via text message at 5PM, long ... Read More

  Not gonna lie to y'all, there are definitely days when I would prefer to wear both my sweatpants and my down comforter outside my apartment instead of doing the civilized thing of putting on "normal" pants. Like my sweatpants are second class citizens or something. Rude.    ANYWAY, according to a recent study, it seems as though covering up on the reg leads to an improved body image. And not just a hoodie hiding third-day top knot hair coverage. ... Read More

The report outlines ways the federal government can better understand and prevent this epidemic. These include demanding access to accurate data from universities, engaging men in ... Read More
California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed SB-1350 and SB-1358, sister bills which would have mandated that baby diaper changing stations be made accessible to both men and women in public restrooms.

So cheers to that!  We’ve pulled some of our favorites, but check out the original article for enough femspiration to get you through the rest of the work week. ... Read More
Tim Burton, the king of spooky cool and curator of '90s kids’ favorite movies from childhood, is coming out with a new lady-centered movie, Big Eyes.  The film is a true story about Margaret Keane, an artist from the 1950s played by Amy Adams, who specialized in painting images of children with freakishly huge eyes. But her husband Walter, played by the charming Christoph Waltz, is not such a charming character. In fact, he’s kind of a ... Read More
