New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is accomplished, hard-working, and handles the idiocy she faces constantly with a grace that is unparalleled. She’s done so much to try and better our nation, and that is why we should care about her. Why, then, is “weight loss” the first suggestion that comes up when you type her name into Google?   In an excerpt from her upcoming memoir, Gillibrand goes into detail about the kind of sexist nonsense she ...

Maggie Campbell is the head distiller at Privateer Rum in Ipswich, Massachusetts. It’s an impressive title, but one that was not easily acquired in the male-dominated spirits industry.   She admits that “female visibility in the spirits industry is very skewed,” and that drama, competition and a sometimes exclusionary energy is par for the course in a small industry such as hers.  Being one of the small but growing number of female ...

Taylor Swift has been a media target since teardrops fell on her guitar back in 2006. Since then, she has been criticized for a veritable laundry list of bullshit such as: who she's ... Read More

I love this. The other day, Shea Strauss, a writer for Playboy, shared a flowchart she created on the magazine’s website—a handy guide to find out whether or not you should catcall a woman.   Turns out, the only time catcalling is okay is if A) she is literally a cat or B) you know her and have “both consensually agreed to shout sexually suggestive comments to each other in public.” AMEN.  Having women on the writing staff at ...

Bullies are everywhere, whether they're on the playground as a kid, in the locker room as an adolescent, or even the person in front of you in line for Starbucks who’s giving the barista a hard time; bullies can feel completely unavoidable.

(And no it does not include baking a cake of ... Read More

Out of the Binders: Symposium on Women Writers Today, aka BinderCon, is a conference promoting leading women in publishing, journalism and entertainment. It aims to counteract the underrepresentation of women and gender nonconforming authors in ... Read More
