    Why Sexism Is The One Thing The Comedy World Can’t Laugh At

    Why Sexism Is The One Thing The Comedy World Can’t Laugh At

    A harsh light was shed on the comedy world last summer, when comedian Aaron Glaser was accused of rape by multiple women. Although no charges against Glaser were filed, women in the New York City comedy community quickly joined the conversation. They had either experienced similar assault from Glaser firsthand, or knew someone who had. When […]

    24 Ugly Hot Celebs We Can’t Explain Our Attraction To

    24 Ugly Hot Celebs We Can’t Explain Our Attraction To

    Being ugly hot is a “gift” only men seemingly possess. After all they are the sex who got praised for having “dad bods,” while women get called “plus size.” But regardless, beauty is really in the eye of the beholder — at least that’s what my friends tell me whenever I bring home another ugly […]

    How To Get The Bounce Back In Your Faded Curls, As Told By An Expert

    When I was in college, in sub-zero temperatures, I had the best hair of my life. I went to Syracuse University, where snow days weren’t a thing because it snowed every day, and we still went out to the bars in dresses and tights when it was -5 outside. But despite the insane weather, something […]

    The Real Reason The Term ‘Daddy Issues’ Exists Has Nothing To Do With Women

    The Real Reason The Term ‘Daddy Issues’ Exists Has Nothing To Do With Women

    Society makes it hard for women to own what belongs to them. Just recently, Emma Watson had to take back and defend her own body, after critics called her new Vanity Fair photoshoot “non feminist.” In the same vein, women have also taken back being called “crazy.” Even men are starting to acknowledge how dismissive it […]

    Trump Praised Women’s Day, And The Internet Reminded Him Of His Sexist Past

    Trump Praised Women’s Day, And The Internet Reminded Him Of His Sexist Past

    I haven’t been able to change my Facebook profile picture. It’s a photo of a quote from the president of the United States of America. We’re taught to believe that a presidential quote is something of nobility. In elementary school, we spent our days staring at laminated posters of the 44 presidents. We stared at their portraits, […]

    8 Ways To Wear Your Resistance Against The Patriarchy While Also Giving Back

    8 Ways To Wear Your Resistance Against The Patriarchy While Also Giving Back

    In my opinion, the best way to resist the patriarchy is to get right to the point. What better way than letting someone know what you believe in than wearing it for all the world to see? Shopping is fun, but Millennials are more into spending money on experiences. That’s why shopping in support of a […]

    Witches Around The World Are Planning A ‘Hex’ On Trump Tonight At Midnight

    Earlier this month, we filled you in on everything you need to know about W.I.T.C.H., the feminist action group making a popular resurgence since Trump’s presidency. Similar to famous “hexes” of the past, like when WITCH glued shut the doors of Wall Street in the ’60s, another mass hex is floating around the internet. And this hex […]

    Why This 24-Year-Old Woman Left Her NYC Life Behind To Live At Standing Rock

    For Laura Hinman, time and money do not exist. She wakes up when the sun comes up, but hours before that, at around 5 am, the first round of water protectors are already awake making coffee and tending to the wood stoves that keep the camps warm. Sunrise is around 7:30, and breakfast consists of whatever resources […]

    8 Women Share The Everyday Sexist Situations They Deal With In The Workplace

    8 Women Share The Everyday Sexist Situations They Deal With In The Workplace

    I’m prepared for internet trolls to be against this one. It’s definitely easier to make excuses for a problem, or delegitimize it, instead of choosing to tackle it head on. If I were to share a story about women who’ve received large settlements for sexual harassment cases, I bet there’d be the “she just wanted the […]

    Scarlett Johansson Doesn’t Understand Women Who Think They’re Equal To Men

    We all saw the statuses that popped up from the deepest, forgotten corners of our Facebook feeds after the national Women’s March was over in January. Women were sharing articles saying things like, “feminists are too ‘out there,'” or, “feminists need to stop complaining and hating men.” And then there was my personal favorite, “Why are […]
