  3. Oh Good, We Might Be Getting One More Lady in Star Wars

    You'd better cast Lupita if you know what's best for you, Abrams.

    While we can all agree that the actors announced in yesterday's Star Wars cast will do an incredible job with whatever material they're given, a lot of people were very concerned by the overabundance of white guys in the cast. Well, hold on to your blasters, because there's still one part that hasn't been cast yet.

  5. Surprise! The Internet Is Not A Nice Place for Women

    Raise your hand if you didn't see this coming.

    It probably shouldn't come as a shock, but as Amanda Hess's new piece for Pacific Standard Magazine points out, women on the Internet get harassed a whole bunch more than men do, and there's nothing that anyone can do about it. Hooray! In other depressing-yet-obvious news, the universe is an unfeeling place, and we are all going to die one day.

  6. What Ads For Women Look Like (To Women) [VIDEO]

    What Boys Think of Girls

    We all know women only care about two things: non-fat yogurt and birth control. At least, that's what advertisements tell me, so it must be right, right? Megan Amram and Yahoo's sketch comedy series did a fantastic parody of condescending women's advertisements: a commercial for both yogurt and birth control, at the same time, finally giving us women exactly what we want. Watch for a painfully accurate portrayal of women in advertisements (laughing with salad) and don't miss the hilarious cameo at the end. (via Upworthy) Previously in Women

  7. Ladies Are Leading The Conversation About SDCC’13

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Proving once again that women can in fact be nerds, Networked Insights has analyzed the social media discussion of Comic-Con, and has determined that women are in the majority when it comes to discussing the event. Based on 3.5 million social media conversations, it appears that 54% of the people talking about SDCC related T.V. shows, actors, movies, comics, and other relevant topics were women, while 46% of those talking about SDCC were male. The study was weighed most heavily on information from Twitter, and clearly shows that women can be, and are, interested and engaged in comics, science fiction, and fantasy communities just as much as men. Obviously, this is something that we have known for quite some time, but it's always nice to have the numbers on your side.

  8. Have You Read Robert Galbraith’s New Book? No? Surprise! He’s Actually J.K. Rowling.

    Gender Bendery

    If you somehow hadn't heard of Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling, you might assume she was a man. In fact, that was done on purpose. She used that pen name rather than her real name,"Joanne," upon first release of that series at the behest of her publisher, who thought boys might not want to read a book by a woman. But Rowling recently published another novel under a different pseudonym, and it was her idea. The Mary Sue readers, allow us to introduce you to Robert Galbraith

  9. Dressing Like A Woman Made Dustin Hoffman Realize He’d Been Brainwashed [VIDEO]

    A Lesson in Humility

    In this interview with AFI archives from late 2012, actor Dustin Hoffman remembers the initial planning for Tootsie, the film in which his character disguises himself as a woman for a job. It was the first makeup test which led Hoffman to break down in tears over a huge revelation about men and women in our society. Take a look.

  10. Texas Senate Forgets Screen Caps Are a Thing, Tries to Rewrite History

    It all sort of unfolded like a George R.R. Martin novel, except the bill was the only thing that died.

    Did you miss last night's monumental Texas state senate filibuster debacle? Because the Internet didn't. Over 160,000 people tuned into a single Youtube livestream to watch the debacle that raged on in the Texas senate over a bill that would have wreaked havoc on abortion centers and reproductive health clinics in the state. Of course, that didn't stop GOP Senators from attempting to manipulate the senate record into reflecting the exact opposite of what actually happened. Silly senators. Don't you know by now that you can't pull one over on the Internet? And that those who tried will be publicly lashed for their troubles? Well, I suppose you do now.
