Pregnant Leathers & Naked Bellies at THR's Women in Hollywood Lunch

There were scant paparazzi pics from Hollywood Reporter's Women in Hollywood luncheon Wednesday, which hopefully reflects more on attendees' disinterest in step-and-repeats than the paps' disinterest in Women in Hollywood.

25 years ago today, a gunman entered the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec, in Canada, killing 14 women and injuring another 14 people in the name of "fighting feminism," before taking his own life.

Here's Gwen Stefani's New 'Feminist' Track 'Spark the Fire'

Add The T Word to the Many Ways Laverne Cox Is Changing the World

Laverne Cox is 5'11", maybe 6'4" in Louboutins, but her super-shiny, super-long blonde wig gives her the illusion of added height. Or maybe it's the metaphor: in the year and a half since Orange is the New Black began, Cox's star has grown exponentially, and as a public figure she is larger than life: the rare… » 10/17/14 2:10pm 10/17/14 2:10pm

​The Womansplainer Will Google Feminism for Clueless Dudes (For a Fee)


One of the most annoying parts about talking any aspect of feminism including but not limited to rape culture and misogyny is the inevitable onslaught of skeptics (mostly dudes) who are indignant at such accusations and in need of an explanation. Well buddy who does not appear to understand how Google works, I'm not… » 10/06/14 5:30pm 10/06/14 5:30pm
