An open (love) letter to Jennifer Lawrence

Date: November 19, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
Hey, J. Law (I can call you J. Law, right?), How are you doing? You’re probably busy getting ready for your upcoming Catching Fire premieres (all of which you will probably look fabulous in), so I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how totally awesome you are. Recently, the Internet has been Continue reading


I Don't Shave Featured

Hairy armpits for everyone, please!

Date: September 11, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
You know what disgusts me the most about women with body hair? People who respond to it like it’s gross, dirty, unfeminine, and/or unacceptable. In July, blogger Paloma Goñi wrote an article called “I Don’t Shave” on HuffPost Spain (which was translated to English for the version I refer to here). It’s amazing what a Continue reading

Fund this Kickstarter project! Slut: A Documentary Film

Date: August 5, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
“i love u also i want u to let me squeeze ur boobs.” Another quote from Emily Lindin’s The UnSlut Project reels us in. We covered this project in early May, but just to bring you up to speed: Emily was the sixth grade “slut.” She kept a diary at that time, and decided to Continue reading

From the diary of the 6th grade “slut” — The UnSlut Project

Date: May 7, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
“I can’t dump him now, because then people would think I am even more of a slut than they already do. How could one mistake cause my life to crumble like this?” Would you publish your diary from when you were a pre-teen on the Internet for the entire world to read? This is exactly Continue reading

Science vs. Dove: Thanks, but we are NOT our own worst beauty critics

Date: April 23, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
This blog re-published with permission from Kjerstin Gruys, originally from her blog Mirror, Mirror… Off the Wall. So there’s this new Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” ad campaign, and I’m finally ready to say my piece about it. I watched the three-minute version and felt emotions swelling in my chest. I liked this cathartic feeling, so I immediately Continue reading

Girls suck at math and boys shouldn’t wear princess crowns

Date: March 17, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
Gendered advertising sucks. Seriously. Just last weekend, I was in the grocery store with my partner when we stumbled upon some energy drinks marketed specifically toward women, called Her, which were so uniquely (sarcasm) colored bright pink. Because apparently, all other energy drinks weren’t “feminine” enough, we needed one just for women. Just like we need Continue reading


Reel Girl Female Superheroes Featured

Kids want to see heroic female protagonists

Date: February 19, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
This article was originally published by Margot Magowan on her blog, Reel Girl. Yesterday, I posted about A Mighty Girl’s news that kids’ underwear with female superheroes on it sold out. I also posted about a dad shopping with his 5-year-old daughter who complained about the lack of cool female characters on clothing. He bought his daughter boys’ Continue reading

In praise of female celebrity role models

Date: February 12, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
I think we’re due for a piece full of praise. A high school English teacher in Chicago, Ashley Lauren Samsa, shared on Bitch magazine’s website a list of positive female role models in pop culture, as drafted up by her students. She wrote, “The list is a good insight into what interests teen girls these Continue reading

Going Green: In praise of Laci Green and sex positivity

Date: October 23, 2012 | Posted By: Stacey
Can we please acknowledge how amazing Laci Green is?! If you don’t know about Laci Green, I am here to inform you. She is a sex-educating, YouTubing, social justice advocating, body-positive, and ass-kicking human being. Or, in her own words: “I’m Laci, 22[-year-old] peer sex educator & YouTuber from San Fran. I make videos to Continue reading


Tracy Spiridakos stars in NBC’s newest weekly series, Revolution.

NBC takes a step forward in gender and race representation with Revolution

Date: October 2, 2012 | Posted By: Stacey
On September 17, NBC aired its newest television series Revolution. The premise of the show is pretty simple: One day, every single piece of technology completely blacks out, permanently. Fifteen years later on the outskirts of Chicago, families are living feudally, relying on farming and hunting to sustain themselves. We learn that Ben Matheson may Continue reading
