We've read the scandalous news stories, the op-eds, and the think-pieces (we've even written some). We've stood in solidarity with those who've told their stories, and we've vowed that, despite the fact that Hollywood has been a hostile place toward women basically since its inception, that this time is different.

Jeff Sessions Shocks Us All and Sends Lawyer To Prosecute Transgender Murder Case

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not a man on the frontline of Civil Rights. From the moment he was appointed to the position it was clear that the hardline conservative was not going to be supportive of the same LGBTQ laws that we’ve worked to gain.

Let’s All Remember That VP Mike Pence is Terrible and No, Would Not Be “Better” Than Trump

Mayim Bialik’s Tone-Deaf Op-Ed Is a Reminder That Calling Yourself a Feminist Isn’t Enough

If you needed a reminder that calling yourself a feminist doesn’t automatically make you progressive, look no further than Mayim Bialik’s opinion piece in the New York Times. Titled "Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World," Bialik spoke about her experience being a "prominent-nosed, awkward, geeky, Jewish 11-year-old...in a business that rewarded physical beauty and sex appeal above all else” when she was staring on the show Blossom in the ‘80s.

“Almost Like Praying” Bathroom Demo Shows Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Brilliance, but the Finished Version’s Better, Obvi

Demos are fascinating in that they give us a glimpse into the creative process of musicians we love.
