Scream Queens

I was contacted recently by feminist film director Mélodie Roulaud as she wanted to share her latest project, Scream Queens. A short fashion film from a director who is passionate about promoting body diversity would have been high on my watch list anyway, but the summary is even more wonderful.

Closer inspection revealed that the entrance was being guarded by three Stormtroopers, ahead of the midnight launch of the Star Wars Episode 7 official merchandise. The... Continue Reading →

My So-Called Secret Identity

I still don't quite know why I never really got into comics. I've always loved engaging stories, illustration and superheroes.

Described to me as "a collection of writings by prominent feminist writers, thinkers and performers, revealing... Continue Reading →

Feminism Friday: Introducing Neon Moon

Sending a gender-neutral message to kids

Dolls and dresses are meant for little girls, while trucks and the color blue are reserved strictly for little boys--at least, that's what some companies would like children to believe. Until recently, you couldn't walk down a toy store isle without noticing the drastic separation between rows of pink toys aimed at girls and blue... Continue Reading →
