Part of me knew Beyonce’s “Becky with the good hair” line would cause a wave of uninformed, poorly thought out responses, but for some reason I still hoped for the best. British fashion, beauty and style magazine, Glamour UK, may have had the worst public blunder (to put it mildly) so far, but their antagonistic […]

Feministing Reads: The Spitboy Rule: Tales of a Xicana in a Female Punk Band

Many of us have dreamt of starting a badass girl band. Few of us have been as public and reflective about the process as Michelle Cruz Gonzales, who had no idea picking up a guitar in rural Toulumne, California would lead to a life-long journey in punk feminism. So who better than to write about […]

What The Boss got wrong about “cool”, class, and capitalism

Ted Cruz’s Post-Honeymoon Stockpiling of Canned Soup Isn’t Weird. It’s Endearing.

On Wednesday night, CNN hosted a town hall in New York City with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his family. The event was alternately cute (his daughters love Taylor Swift!) and cringe-inducing. Here’s what Heidi Cruz said about the early days of their marriage:

Why These Two Feminists Aren’t Voting For Hillary

Last night Bernie Sanders won the Wisconsin primary, building on recent victories in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington, and closing in on his delegate deficit with Hillary Clinton. What seemed like a predictable election is now a little less certain for Clinton, who has had widespread support from mainstream feminist movements since the beginning of her […]

Dear Mr. Drumpf, I #WontBePunished

Bust Ghosts, Not Women: Sexist Responses To The ‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer Have Got To Go

The new Ghostbusters cast. From Fantastic Four, to Zoolander 2, to Disney’s live-action remake of The Jungle Book, it seems that 2016 might be the year of cinematic reboots, remakes and sequels.

No, Bernie Sanders Did Not “Let” Marissa and Mara Have the Mic – They Took It

When I saw this meme comparing how Senator Bernie Sanders “treated” Black Lives Matter protestors in Seattle last year versus how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did, I scoffed, rolled my eyes, and hated the internet. The meme suggests that Senator Sanders welcomed the disruption orchestrated by Marissa Johnson, Mara Willaford, and fellow members […]

Video of the Day: ‘SNL’ Political Ad Parody Highlights Racism of Trump Supporters

Saturday Night Live aired a mock political advertisement of Donald Trump voters on Saturday that will give you that one-of-a-kind feeling of wanting to laugh, cry, and vomit all at once.  The “Voters for Trump” Ad features several seemingly average white cast members making stock “this is why I’m voting for my candidate” statements, before revealing symbols that […]

Public health advocates often use the phrase “natural” in their attempts to promote breastfeeding. As a marketing strategy, it’s a shrewd move.
