Kickstarter Spotlight: Help Fund The Punk Singer

All the cool kids are doing it. (Does that statement still motivate people?) Kathleen Hanna (artist, musician, cultural activist, feminist, the list goes on and on) is one of my heroes and I really can’t get enough of her awesomeness, and I feel like this documentary will help her awesomeness reach a shit-ton more women in this country & beyond to not only learn more about her story and what she accomplished, but to be inspired to do great things.

Whatever you decide to do (donate or not donate), that’s completely up to you. But, really, we all know this is going to be a kick ass documentary. Just do it. <–

From ‘Clit Cut’ to ‘Vag-esty’: Why Warpaint is my new favorite band.

I know that this is not really a movie most people think of when they think of holiday films, but it is one of my favorites to watch around Christmastime. Especially when I’m at home. And especially with my sisters and my mom. Watching it now as a young woman is still amazing and I can look back and understand why I loved it so much as a young girl. I can also see how this film has shaped me in some ways to be the woman I am today. read more »
