  When I was in high school I didn’t have a homecoming dance, but I saw a lot on TV and I would get quite invested. From what I could tell, the ritual of crowning a homecoming queen could either be a way of celebrating teen girls or a cruel means to tear them down. I don’t know if it’s at all like this in real life, but homecoming queens seemed all powerful when I saw them in the media. For my favorite fictional characters, being crowned ... Read More
Happy Bisexual Pride Day! Growing up in San Francisco, I used to love walking around the Castro on Gay Pride Day and seeing glittering smiles on the faces of people who felt understood. It's a shame that Bisexual Pride Day is not met with the same colorful rumpus! Bisexuality has had a hard time gaining visibility (visibility here referring to the increased or mainstream media exposure for a given group, i.e. LGBT appearances in TV and film) as a legitimate ...

It’s late afternoon on a Tuesday and actress Mink Stole has stopped cleaning her apartment to answer my phone call. “How fine can a person be when she’s washing floors?” she responds when I ask her how she’s feeling.  With forty years of theatrical acting experience under her belt and a place as one of John Waters’ Dreamlanders, the nimble actress/singer/advice-columnist took a break from readying her home for a ...

These past few weeks, I am 100% pro-Sarah Silverman! From her response to the roast of James Franco to her touching tribute to her dog, she's making it hard to decide if I want to be her or if I want to be making out with her. Now, SS is adding to her street cred with an appearance in Psychic Friend's new music video for "We Do Not Belong."  In the video, Silverman plays a girl in a mental hospital who, despite doctors' various treatments, remains ...

With Halloween just around the corner, every store is bursting with the same lame costumes they have every year...Batman, Spiderman, and of course their barely-there female counterparts! These skin-tight and ultra-revealing looks got me thinking...If you're going to be fighting bad guys (or good guys!) you would need some serious comfort and breathe-ability instead of latex lingerie.   Illustrator Celeste Pille was thinking just the same thing when she used ...

“Beginning Monday, 23 September, I am going on hunger strike. This is an extreme method, but I am convinced that it is my only way out of my current situation.” These are the words of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, art activist and member of Russian punk collective Pussy Riot. 14 months ago, she, along with two other members of the group, were arrested under charges of “hooliganism” following a guerrilla performance in a cathedral. After serving ... Read More
It’s always great to start off the day with a blood-boiling-ly bigoted piece of writing. It fuels the flames of feminism and reminds me why I still care, and why everyone else should care, about women's issues. Today, my inspiration wasn't hard to find: I bring to you one man’s take on how to spot a "slut." As it turns out, top-tier news source ReturnOfKings.com is offering up 24 simple signs that you can look for if you think a gal ... Read More
Sarah Sophie Flicker is a woman in a league of her own. The lovely lady has done everything from directing feminist and environmentalist PSAs to founding a circus-esque brigade of performance artists and musicians known as The Citizens Band. When she's not being a pioneer in the arts or an innovator in fashion, she's writing for some of our favorite feminist publications like Rookie Magazine and HelloGiggles. The Women Take Over recently sat down with ... Read More

Remember when M.I.A. tossed up her middle finger during her appearance at the 2012 SuperBowl? Yeah, it’s cool—I really don’t remember it either. Even the FCC never gave her any heat about it, and what do you know? The world is still fully functional and humans haven’t quite yet resorted to cannibalism. As it turns out, not everyone is satisfied with the current state of affairs. It has recently come to light that the NFL began taking action ... Read More
