Today’s Lady News: WA Pharmacies Don’t Have To Sell Plan B, Judge Rules

  • Pharmacies in Washington state are no longer required to carry the morning-after pill/Plan B following a ruling by a district judge. Two pharmacies had claimed that being forced to provide the morning-after pill infringed on their freedom of religion. [Nerve]
  • Jan Berenstain, the children’s book author who co-wrote The Berenstain Bears series with her husband, died on Friday at the age of 88. Jan and Stan Berenstein wrote over 300 Berenstain Bears books, starting all the way back in 1962. [TMZ]

Because she’s a lesbian.

That, sadly, seems to be the logic behind The Daily Caller’s daily tally of how many times Rachel Maddow has said the words ”vagina” or “vaginal” on her show. No, I’m not making this up: someone at the conservative news site kept track of the 58 V-bombs that Maddow dropped February 14th until February 24, when she was discussing the Virginia’s anti-abortion transvaginal ultrasound bill. I’m not sure why it’s newsworthy that someone said the word “vaginal” when discussing a transvaginal ultrasound. Is it because vaginas are dirty and bad? Perhaps Maddow should have said “trans-wee-wee” instead?  Sounds like someone at the Daily Caller is a liiiiittle more preoccupied with the vajajay than Rachel Maddow herself may be. [Daily Caller]

“There hasn’t been any occasion that I felt brave enough to do it. … I feel very powerful, I really do. I feel more powerful every day, more secure in who I am, and I’ve waited so long for that … It feels so divine.” 

– Viola Davis at the Essence Black Women In Hollywood event last week (left), where she rocked her natural hair, looked great and felt powerful doing it!  I’m psyched that she felt brave enough to go natural at the Oscars (right), too. [Essence]

"Mad Men" season 5 poster photo

Every week it seems like there is new art for the “Mad Men” season five premiere, not that we mind. This is the “official” art and it sure is perplexing. Don Draper is staring at a pair of mannequins, including a naked female mannequin, and his own reflection in a department store window. What does it all mean?! Series creator Matt Weiner told The New York Times the ad is “a dreamlike image” and “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be.” Well, that doesn’t help. “By the end of the season, I guarantee you’ll know what it is about,” Weiner promised. Hope so. [NY Times]
