Girl Talk: Why Dating Is Like “Goldilocks & The Three Bears”

I’ve been trying on men lately like Goldilocks testing out chairs and porridge, vacillating between one extreme and the other — scalding hot and limply cold, too soft and too damn hard.

Sunday night’s premiere episode of HBO’s new comedy “Girls” drove home this idea of extremes when it comes to self-selecting men: the… More »


5 Dating Don’ts From The “Girls” Premiere

HBO’s new show “Girls” premiered last night, and while we enjoyed seeing this modern, messier take on the “Sex and the City” formula — group of female friends deal with dating and relationship drama in New York City — sometimes the realities of the dating world can be a bit cringe-inducing (albeit relatable). In this inaugural episode we… More »


13 Things “Girls” Got Right

So. Did you watch the premiere of “Girls” last night? I did and I loved it. I thought the writing was fresh and realistic and funny — like, I laughed out loud and I rarely do that when I’m watching TV alone and not being egged on by other peoples’ laughter — and the overarching… More »


The Soapbox: “Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23″ And “Girls” Make Me Realize My Life Is A Cliché

Hello, my name is Alexandra Gekas and I am a single woman living in New York City who used to watch “Sex and the City.” I can assure you that I did not come to New York City to live the life of “Sex in the City.” But I also did not know just how… More »


Lena Dunham Isn’t The Voice Of A Generation — And That’s Okay

“People are saying this is ‘Sex and the City’ for the next generation,” said Conan O’Brien, speaking to Lena Dunham, on last night’s episode of “Conan.” The Los Angeles Times called Dunham’s show “Girls” “the uncomfortably true voice of millennial women.” And The New Yorker attacked “Girls” for its lack of inclusivity: “‘Girls’ also paints… More »


Lena Dunham Addresses “Labia Saturation Point”

“I think Sarah Silverman had a quote where she was like, ‘Sometimes with an old guy with misogyny you’re just like, “You cute old guy. You misogynist.” I almost feel like [‘Two & A Half Men’ co-creator Lee Aronsohn, who complained last week that too many women have shows on TV ] is holding on… More »


Check Out The Extended Trailer For “Girls”

Hey, sorry, everybody, but if you were planning on inviting me to hang out on Sunday, April 15, I won’t be able to make it. Or any Sunday thereafter for at least a few months. See, “Girls” premieres this coming Sunday and, well, this extended trailer has managed to make me even more psyched than… More »


That’s A Lot Of Look: Claire Danes At HBO’s “Girls” Premiere

Oh, Claire. Just yesterday I was fawning over your honest, funny, totally relatable interview with ASOS. You looked simultaneously adorable and enviably cool. You called yourself a “sales slut”; I identified. The Preen dress you wore last night to the premiere of “Girls,” however, was a different story. A really, really different story — it… More »


Lena Dunham On The Debt “Girls” Owes To “Sex And The City”

“‘Sex and the City’ [is] not necessarily an influence on the show, but it’s an influence on the girls in the show and we know the show couldn’t exist without it because these girls wouldn’t exist without it. They wouldn’t have necessarily had the drive to move to New York and try to live this… More »


These “Girls” Trailers Hit A Little Too Close To Home

The first trailer for Lena Dunham’s new HBO show “Girls,” debuting April 15, hit a little too close to home. The second trailer is even more cringe-inducing. Oh, God, my early 20’s really were like this, weren’t they? At least I never said to my parents, “All I am asking for is $1,100 a month… More »


Lena Dunham Returns With “Girls”

Okay, so I liked prodigal filmmaker Lena Dunham’s debut film, “Tiny Furniture.” It was quirky, original and totally captured the nebulous insecurity and waivering self-loathing you feel post-college. Now Dunham’s back, with a new series on HBO called “Girls,” produced by Judd Apatow and starring several of her “Tiny Furniture” pals.  But this long teaser… More »


Oh No, It’s A Huge Group Of Girls

This video, lambasting the longstanding tradition of girls traveling in large packs to nightclubs, might not be — in the words of the immortal Whitney Houston — “right, but it’s okay.” You know the girls this video is talking about. Maybe sometimes you’re even one of them. No shame. Just don’t be Becky, okay? She… More »


Watch A Trailer For Lena Dunham’s New HBO Show “Girls”

We loved Lena Dunham’s breakthrough film “Tiny Furniture,” a film she wrote, produced, starred in and directed when she was barely out of college. Now, just two years later at the still-baby age of 24, Dunham is back with her own HBO TV show, produced by Judd Apatow. Titled “Girls,” the show follows Dunham and… More »


Childhood Frenemies: The Crappy Friends We Thought Were Awesome At The Time

Having a frenemy sucks. But at least there is some sort of unspoken agreement there—that you both acknowledge the sense of competition. The other night, some friends and I were talking about the concept of frenemies at a bar and I realized that I actually had my very first one in high school—only I had… More »


Today’s Lady News: Three Girls Win The Google Science Fair

Three girls are the winners of the Google Science Fair, a co-ed science competition. Lauren Hodge studied the effects of different marinades on the level of carcinogens in chicken (wait, is this something I should be afraid of?), Naomi Shah studied indoor air quality and asthma, and Grand Prize Winner Shree Bose studied ways to… More »


15 Rules For Girls … That Are Meant to Be Broken

Don’t get me wrong. I love rules. They’re great. They provide order. Structure. Prevent us from killing each other over the little things (Like your roommate eating the last of the Tostitos) and the big things (Like your roommate eating the last of the Lime Tostitos). Those rules are important, necessary even. But some rules,… More »


Today’s Lady News: U.S. House Could Not Pass Anti-Child Marriage Bill

A bill to further protect girls around the world from child marriage failed to pass the House of Representatives yesterday, despite unanimously passing in the Senate. According to The Washington Post, some members of Congress had circulated memos urging people not to support the bill because it would “overturn pro-life laws.” However, the words… More »


Facials Are A “Brainy” Toy For Girls

What sort of “brainy” toys can your little girl play with from the MindWare catalog, which prides itself as “the nation’s best resource for educational toys for kids”? Facials! Your little Einstein-ette can “whip up a body scrub” or make fairy dust, fairy glitter and lip balms “from scratch” with her very own all-natural dayMore »


“I Am A Girl” Documentary Looks Like A Sobfest

If “Babies” had you in tears, then “I Am A Girl” will be a 16 hanky affair. The Australian documentary, which is made possible by philanthropic donations, will show us the lives of 10 girls around the world to illustrate “the simple fact of being born female means you are more likely to… More »


Has Feminism Gone Too Far?

You know, I understand there was a time in history when the word “feminism” meant something. Women fought to win equal rights. And some 50 years later, great strides have been made. Recently, it seems like old-school feminism has returned. This time around, though, it seems like all the political action is gone,… More »
