If Little Girls Dropping F-Bombs Offends You More Than Gender Inequality, Just Sit The F*ck Down

If Little Girls Dropping F-Bombs Offends You More Than Gender Inequality, Just Sit The F*ck Down

FCKH8.com produced a video message about gender inequality and people are freaking out about it. Why? Because it uses little girls, dressed as princesses and dropping a bunch of f-bombs. The message: there are plenty of things more offensive than seeing little girls say the word “fuck.” It’s a message that has managed to go over the heads of many. I’m not surprised. More »

If You’re Berating Women For Dressing Sexy On Halloween, You’re Not A Feminist

If You're Berating Women For Dressing Sexy On Halloween, You're Not A Feminist

If an adult woman wants to dress up in a skimpy Halloween costume, more power to her. The constant ridicule and shaming women face during this holiday season is absurd. It’s particularly disturbing when it’s from other women. There’s nothing progressive or feminist about berating adults for something as silly as what they decide to wear on Halloween. More »

It’s Beyond Pathetic That Men Are Trying To Silence Emma Watson By Leaking Her Nudes

It's Beyond Pathetic That Men Are Trying To Silence Emma Watson By Leaking Her Nudes

Over the weekend, Emma Watson gave an inspirational speech at the United Nations, calling on men to join the feminist cause. Video of her speech quickly went viral, because it was awesome (and probably also because it featured Hermione Granger), and by Monday night it had reached nearly every corner of the Internet. Unfortunately, that included the Internet’s most famous cesspool, 4chan, who responded in prime cesspool fashion by threatening to leak stolen nude photographs of Watson. Because nothing says “Your speech about feminism was stupid and unnecessary” like trying to silence women with the threat of leaked nudes! More »

Emma Watson Grows From Child Star To Powerful Feminist In Inspiring UN Speech

Emma Watson Grows From Child Star To Powerful Feminist In Inspiring UN Speech

Emma Watson really is the brightest witch woman of her age. At a United Nations meeting in New York on Sunday, Watson gave a speech in her role as U.N. goodwill ambassador in support of gender equality, and asking men to stand up in solidarity for the rights of women everywhere. During her speech, Watson also permanently cemented my adoration for her by proudly and firmly labeling herself as a feminist. More »

No, Getting Female CEOs To Pose In Their Underwear Is Not A Step Forward For Feminism

No, Getting Female CEOs To Pose In Their Underwear Is Not A Step Forward For Feminism

Underwear brand Dear Kate relishes the concept of using non-traditional models in their ads, and when the company’s CEO talks about her brand, you really get the sense she thinks she’s above the Victoria’s Secret come-hither sales model. That’s great and all, but putting female tech CEOs in their underwear and claiming to make some feminist point while doing it totally misses the mark. More »

Watching High School Boys Talk About Why They’re Feminists Is The Best Thing Ever

Watching High School Boys Talk About Why They're Feminists Is The Best Thing Ever

I’m always yammering about how I want to raise my sons not to be total douchecanoes, and nothing has made me happier today than watching this video and seeing how young men articulate why they consider themselves feminists. It’s so amazingly rare that we see men who are proud to identify as feminists who aren’t total mansplainers, and even more rare that we see high school and young college aged dudes who are willing to do so. The young men in the video took the feminism class at LREI during the 20112-2013 school year. More »

Frozen’s ‘Let It Go’ Wins Best Original Song Because It’s The Feminist Anthem Your Daughter Needs

Frozen's 'Let It Go' Wins Best Original Song Because It's The Feminist Anthem Your Daughter Needs

When you compare Let It Go to the pop culture musical offerings our daughters are exposed to, the Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry and hundreds of other bubblegum, highly sexualized, auto-tuned ditties about mainly boys and meeting boys and dating boys and losing boys and making boys like you – Let It Go is about self-celebration and finding your true power within. It’s about growing up and learning to accept yourself and loving who you are on the inside. More »

Mommy Bloggers Are Told To Sit Down And Shut Up Because They Are Women Writers With Kids

Mommy Bloggers Are Told To Sit Down And Shut Up Because They Are Women Writers With Kids

‘m a mom who writes for a parenting website and hence I’m a mommy blogger. But lately it seems that more and more the term “mommy blogger” is used as an insult, as a way to discredit the opinions and points of view of female writers who also happen to have children. If you’re a writer on a website that doesn’t have a print edition you are technically a blogger. If you write mainly about parenting you’re a “mommy blogger.” So why has this become a derogatory term? More »

This Article About A Mum Sending Her Kid To Private School So She Can Bag A Rich Husband Is Basically The Best

YOU GUYS! It’s our favorite thing ever! We haven’t gotten to do this in MONTHS and some of you may remember the last time we did when we all discussed that evil stepmother who threw the Christmas tree out the window and we also all learned our new favorite word, which is #BOLTHOLE. Well now The Daily Mail wins again by bringing us this magical tale of a mother of a nine-year-old daughter named Matilda who sends her kids to private school NOT because she wants her to be a learned business women, but because she wants her to be a stay-at-home mum.
