Now theaters in Swedish cinemas have added something new to their ratings system: Whether the film passes the Bechdel Test.

Series of Real-World Heroines As Disney Princesses Is Snarktastically Wonderful

If you’ll remember, Disney’s redesign of Brave’s Merida kicked up quite the controversy earlier this year, causing many to be upset by how Disney crushes their princesses’ individuality in favor of creating generic, glitter-tastic images for them to slap on products and sell. Among those less-than-impressed is artist David Trumble, who worked with educational psychologist Lori Day to parody Disney’s “princessification” by illustrating what it would be like if the same treatment were applied to real-life female role models.

Hit the jump to see the entire series and some quotes from Trumble on his inspiration.

Amazon Reviewers Praise the Patriarchy-Busting Power of Wendy Davis’ Filibuster Shoes

Everyone’s still buzzing over Texas State Senator Wendy Davis‘ epic filibuster in defense of a woman’s right to choose. For good reason, too. I hope it proves to be something that people remember—and talk about, and teach their kids about—for decades to come.

That enthusiasm has found a surprising outlet on the Amazon.com page for the bright red running shoes Davis wore while (literally) standing up for women’s rights for a grueling 11 hours. Actually, no, it’s not particularly surprising that people would leave reviews praising Mizuno Women’s Wave Rider 16 Running Shoes for their ability to “outrun [the] patriarchy.” This is the Internet, after all.

But it’s still fun.
