This one's for all my young chickies starting high school in September. I don’t remember the exact moment that I officially identified myself as a feminist. I feel like I’ve always been one, but it wasn't until sometime in my early teenage years that I started to use the actual F-word. But even when I finally had a word for it, I still thought I was one of the only feminists in town. I had no clue that there was a whole bunch of girls my age, in my ... Read More
The psychedelic noise folk duo CocoRosie is returning to Webster Hall once again this September. They’re playing the Future Feminism Benefit Concert on September 7th with special guests Antony, Kembra Pfahler and the Girls of Karen Black, and Johanna Constantine. All of these artists make up the Future Feminists collective, and the proceeds from the concert will go towards the opening of the collective’s upcoming exhibition at the Hole art gallery, and ...

Two of my favorite things—pin-up style and humanely-farmed poultry-are coming together! Marion Acres, a small farm in Portland, just had its annual “Ladies’ Chicken Harvest.” Ten women, all dolled up in red lipstick, victory rolls and polka dots, came to the farm for a day to try their hands at chicken harvesting, and it naturally made for some pretty priceless photos.  I love chicken, but how it’s farmed and processed is super ...

Not sure whether I’d be disgruntled or delighted to reach for my favorite candy bar at a deli, only to realize that it wasn’t a candy bar at all, but a plush replica. On second thought, I’d be pretty delighted, especially if everything in the whole store had been replaced by adorable, hand-stitched felt duplicates.   British artist Lucy Sparrow devoted seven months to making that happen, and her completed project, The Corner Shop, is on ...

  Today’s been a mishmash of goods and bads, to say the least. Bads: I got my wisdom teeth out and I can’t eat solid food for a few days. Goods: I finally have a medical excuse to sleep, read, drink smoothies, sleep and watch Netflix all day. Very bads: It stings like a beeyotch, and being bedridden during summer vacation is probably the worst fate a free-spirited gal like myself can endure, next to lice during summer vacation (a fate I have also ...

Well it’s about time! This week, President Obama gave a speech in Kansas City, where he talked about a letter a young girl had recently sent him.  The girl had asked why there weren’t any female faces on our paper currency.  She attached a list of possibilities, and the president said he thought it was "a pretty good idea.” While we don’t know who exactly was on the girl’s list, New York Magazine has created their own list ...

  I’m super excited for school, you guys. Now, before you say anything, hang with me. Not regular school. I’m talking about a free, online school for teenage girls, with classes to promote imagination and creativity, taught by legends like Cat Power and Marina Abramović. A new Kickstarter for something called the School of Doodle is promising just that, and a new platform for girls to create, connect, build confidence and “Be Loud.” ... Read More
This music is straight bangin’, pun intended. Macy Gray is back with a music video that’s as dusky and devilish as her unmistakable voice, and twice as deadly. The video for “Bang Bang” is Bond-style debauchery at its sexiest with slow motion high-stakes poker, complete with dirty dancing, and some killer call girls in killer lingerie. The new single is off Gray’s upcoming eighth studio album “The Way,” out October ... Read More
Lorde is once again proving that she is as royal as her name (and her Grammy award-winning single) suggest.  It’s just been announced that the singer is set to release the lead single, as well as curate the soundtrack, for Mockingjay - Part 1, the first film of the final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy.  The 17-year old singer/songwriter commented that compiling the soundtrack and working with all of the artists involved was a challenging ...

Food policing sucks. It can totally catch you off guard the first time it happens.  “You’re getting fries too? Those’ll go straight to your hips, you know.” “Are you sure you seconds are a good idea?”  “Just a salad? You’re so thin—eat a darn cheeseburger!”  It’s startling, uncalled for, and people often don't know it’s a problem until it actually happens to them.  ... Read More
