Studio Head Amy Pascal Offers Straight Talk On The Dismal State of Hollywood For Female Directors

As the only female head of a major studio, Amy Pascal knows her stuff when it comes to the industry. So when she says of female directors that “the whole system is geared for them to fail,” maybe she knows what she’s talking about. Just maybe.

Note the sarcasm, please; I just wanted to get ahead of any mansplainers who might want to say things like “But I was in a directing class once and most of my fellow students were men, so maybe there aren’t that many women who wan’t to direct!”

Lady Scientists Promote The Field With Make-Up, Dancing, & Actual Science Stuff [VIDEO]

Remember that video, Science: It’s a Girl Thing? Yeah. It was terrible and the European Union Commission spent a lot of money making it. So a group of Bristol women getting their PhDs in neuroscience, psychology, psychopharmacology, and more decided to make a parody for a lot less. And it’s pretty great. The parody is called “Science: It’s a Thing.4.Girls” and some fellas even get in on the fun! The women suggest, “If you would like to do something practical to help women in science, why not buy a calendar here?”

Upon hearing there’s a bar that offers pregnancy tests in the bathroom, you might think they’re trying to make some really terrible joke about taking someone home after a few beers and having unprotected sex. In actuality, they’re concerned with women who had sex before stepping into their establishment. That’s right. One Minnesota bar wants to prevent you from drinking while you’re pregnant. Thanks for the concern, I guess?

If there’s one thing I’ve always found the most inconvenient about being a woman, it’s the flabbergasting lack of pens marketed for my delicate lady-fingers. Luckily, the marketing geniuses over at Bic have come along to save the day, and Bic’s “For Her” pens are a smash hit. At least, if Amazon UK is to be believed, what with its pages upon pages of reviews on the product. And by “smash hit,” I mean “every lady with writing fingers saw right through their ploy and responded in kind.” Click through the jump to read some of the hilarious reviews of the pens.

Google’s Using “Very Google-y” Tactics In Efforts to Hire (and Retain) More Women

For even the most casual of internet-dwellers, Google is the king of the internet. Or, perhaps more accurately, the sherpa that helps us navigate its treacherous waters. It gives us directions, answers our crucial questions (“is my cat gay?”), and points us towards the how-tos we most desperately need. So what does the behemoth company do when it most needs its own how-to? Well, it pretty much googles it. And this time it’s in need of advice on how to incorporate more women into the company.

Kangaroos Have Three Vaginas, So Here Is How That Works

What’s that you say? Oh yes, it’s true — marsupials, including the most popular one, the kangaroo, are equipped with a total of three vaginas. Three vaginas, two uteri, all there to serve their own joey-bearing purpose. For one thing, can you imagine their periods, you guys? Crazy! For another, imagine how hilariously scared all those anti-choice lawmakers would be when they got a load of this information if it applied to human vaginas! We’d probably have to stop being women altogether! Because it’s just too many vaginas for people to understand!
