If you’re against the atrocity that is this bill, and want to help protect women’s rights, you should consider signing this online petition, which will be sent to your […]Read More HEY!

Why do your […]Read More Mythbustin’ Mondays: Age(ism) is Only a Number.
I came across this Huffington Post article just now , it’s ridiculous: ” Going forward, if H.R. 3 becomes law, only incest victims younger than 18 could receive taxpayer funding for an abortion. Similarly, the longstanding exemption for victims of rape would be altered to only apply to cases of “forcible rape.” What is forcible rape?

I begin with a story: I was sitting in class and our professor was discussing an author we had read for class that day.

There was a time (not too long ago) when I couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing T.I.’s single “Whatever You Like.” And I will freely admit that yes, I would leave the song on, and yes I do know all the words. (Although usually I would substitute the words “Joe Biden” for “yo body”). […]Read More The Day the Music Changed

Here’s a shocking statistic: Only 1% of EVERYTHING WE BUY is still in use six months after we buy it. ONE. PERCENT. Okay, I know this video’s kind of a doozy, but it’s worth watching, I promise. Scouts’ honor. The point is: we’re buying things we don’t need. And it especially effects us as women. […]Read More Do I really need this?
