Plenty of women decide early on that having children is not for them, while others realize later on that their lifestyle will not allow for the time, money, and commitment that raising a child demands. A new study, however, shows that the decision to not have children may have a lot to do with something else — a woman’s IQ. Keep reading »

Here’s a film that will bring tears to your eyes: the story of Malala Yousafzai, the then 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was attacked by the Taliban for advocating on behalf of girls’ education, is set to become a documentary! After being shot at last October in her head and neck while on her way to school, Malala was airlifted out of Pakistan to a hospital in the UK to recuperate. She has persevered despite her extensive injuries and serves a huge inspiration to young girls and women throughout the world as she continues to fight for access to education for everyone. Davis Guggenheim, director of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Waiting for Superman,” will direct the film Malala’s documentary, which will follow her attack, her recovery, and the activism that has earned her a nomination for  both the Nobel Peace Prize and for the International Children’s Peace Prize. Congrats, Malala! [Guardian UK]

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is currently facing three investigations by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights over the school’s handling of sexual assault reports.

The issues at UNC first became apparent when rape victim Landen Gambill (pictured here) was found in violation of the school’s honor code and faced the threat of expulsion. (Charges have since been dismissed.) After reporting UNC to the federal government for mishandling sexual assault cases, Gambill was accused of an honor court violation for exhibiting “disruptive or intimidating behavior” towards her alleged rapist, even though she never released his name. UNC eventually dropped the charges, but only after the case received national attention. The school is now under investigation for retaliating against a sexual assault whistleblower, underreporting sexual assault cases, and failing to adjudicate rape at the school.  Keep reading »

We’re Madly Jealous Of Feminist Summer Camp For High School Girls

feminist summer camp

Summer camp is the quintessential summer experience for many, but at this Manhattan-based camp, there isn’t a campfire or s’more in sight. This is Feminist Camp.

Created by Amy Richards and Jennifer Baumgardner, the co-authors of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism and the Future, Feminist Camp aims to teach girls what being a feminist really means. Young women can expect to “hone their leadership skills, meet inspiring activists, and tackle the real issues that impact their lives.” Sounds rad! Keep reading »

sexy teacher

Principal Mark Slater of The Leys in Cambridge, a prestigious boarding school in the UK, has an idea popular with 14-year-old boys the world over: students should be taught sex education by porn stars.

Wait, what? Oh, he has his reasons! ”I wouldn’t rule it out — simply because of what they’ve done in their life — if I felt that person was going to put across good values and be a good influence,” Slater explained.

While we appreciate his accepting attitude, and understand that he feels that the students will learn a lot about the less glamorous and dangerous parts of the pornography industry, this suggestion is truly, laughably terrible.  As the porn star James Deen has put it, when he visits college campuses to lecture about safe sex, real life sex is nothing like porn sex: Keep reading »
