Fem-Focused Fashion Week Round-Up

Fem-Focused Fashion Week Round-Up

NY Fashion Week doesn’t always get looked at with the most female-positive set of eyes.

David Bowie Was a 17-Year-Old Feminist (Sort Of)

David Bowie Was a 17-Year-Old Feminist (Sort Of)

Once upon a time, David Bowie was a 17-year-old long-haired “activist.” This fantastic footage from Bowie’s possibly first-ever TV interview talking about the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men is priceless.

Yoga Woman: On The Feet of Women Warriors, Why I Touch Them, And Why I Want Them Farther Apart

by Jessie Horness At the end of many of my yoga classes, I give a little final adjustment. Often it’s just a mini-shoulder massage. If I have time, however, the attention to the resting, hardworking bodies in front of me is more complete, beginning with a touch to the feet. For my students, [...]
