  2. Cate Blanchett: People Who Think Homophobia, Other Discrimination Are Over Are “Very Foolish”

    Some people in America lately seem to be convinced that we've entered some kind of future utopia where we've moved past racism, sexism, homophobia, and all other kinds of discrimination, and only the people who wish to have meaningful conversations about those subjects even notice such petty differences between people—despite the reality of daily discrimination.

  6. Feminist Lisa Frank Will Knock Your Rainbow Unicorn Socks Off

    We love Lisa Frank. Full stop. But we also really appreciate when the internet takes Lisa Frank and injects it with an extra dose of amazing.

The Feminist Lisa Frank tumblr also makes sure to be inclusive while employing a lovely bit of snark when necessary. We approve.

    Two days ago, Star Trek Into Darkness' Alice Eve posted this great photo of body confidence activist, Harnaam Kaur, on her Instagram with the hashtags #equalpay and #equalrights.

    We here at The Mary Sue obviously spend a good portion of our days trying to think critically about how female sexuality is portrayed in media like comics and film, and a common response to criticism of pieces like the now-notorious Milo Manara variant cover is that it can seem difficult to tell the difference between empowering sexuality and objectification.

    Saying 'Joss Whedon' and 'feminist' in the same sentence will get you a variety of responses. There are those who think him one of the best examples of the term while others think he shouldn't be associated with it at all.
