“We are at our most courageous when we are willing to dive, head first, into that genuine intimacy.” The idea of being naked and frolicking through the woods covered in only moss, bark, and body paint sounds beautiful in nature but terrifying in reality. Women are usually terrified of the idea of being caught on camera completely naked, models and playboy bunnies excluded. That’s why it’s so amazing to see 10 women of all shapes and sizes ...

The governor of Louisiana wants not only to be your next president, but to drive abortions back underground as well.  Two days before speaking at the Iowa Republican State Convention and shortly after alluding to a possible 2016 run, Bobby Jindal signed a bill further restricting Louisianan clinics with a Baptist church as witness. HB 388 is just one of the many targeted regulation of abortion provide laws (TRAP) in the U.S. The law requires facilities ... Read More

Hopefully if you are reading this, you are close to the ground, safely seated, and at low risk for heart attacks and strokes, because I have the best news since nutella French toast became an acceptable breakfast choice. This Sunday, you better scarf down your brunch, because at 3 pm, the 8 hour long Law and Order SVU marathon commences. This, however, is not the ordinary SVU run that can be commonly found on pretty much any channel at any time of the day. This ... Read More
By now I’m sure we’re all remembering how beautiful the sight of an AC working away in a window is.  We’ve started to dread going outside into the heat and humidity.  Yep, summer’s well on its way; in fact, tomorrow is the summer solstice! At the Summer Solstice is the day when the sun reaches its northernmost point in the sky, meaning that we have daylight for longer— though the hours of sunlight depend on location, many ... Read More
In an age where feminism is often misunderstood and demonized as a movement for female “man haters,” this progressive high school teacher finally decided to take matters into her own hands and reeducate her students about the true meaning of the word. The students responded so positively to the course that 7 of the boys in her class decided to make a video (shown below), in which they proudly declare themselves feminists. Even though the course ... Read More

Seth Matlins, a former chief marketing officer, has seen his fair share of computer-altered waistlines and falsely whitened skin. ... Read More
Yesterday I ran away with the circus.  Let me rephrase that.  Yesterday I left work a little early to take the 20 minute PATH Train ride to Aerial Acrobat Entertainment in Jersey City.  There, I took an hour-long Lyra & Trapeze class, taught by Guinevere DiPiazza.  I’ll admit that I was a little nervous—I can’t remember the last time I attempted anything that requires upper body strength (unless typing on a computer counts ...

Once upon a time, beauty companies were telling women that their bodies weren't smooth enough, their faces clear enough, and their hair, shiny enough. However, after various body-positive movements in addition to all the feminist scholars critiquing the issue, companies have attempted to alter the explicit ways in which they enforce constant body surveillance. Now more recently, we are seeing women's beauty advertisements "praise" empowerment over body image. Take ... Read More
