The Identity Project Photo by Sarah Deragon_005

The Identity Project uses photos to share the diversity of LGBTQ communities.

Neil deGrasse Tyson gives a perfect answer about discrimination and expectations in response to a question about “chicks in science.”

The NYPD asked people on Twitter for pictures with police officers, and got a chronicle of police brutality. See some of the photos here.

Another product of rape culture: a new report shows that many young women view sexual assault as normal behavior.

Why net neutrality is a feminist issue.

Women need structural change more than they need tips to boost their confidence.

A new report shows that use of solitary confinement as punishment is very subjective, and can include punishing female prisoners who report rape.

As a whiskey drinking woman, I relate to this piece about expectations of women’s drinking, which also has interesting history about women in bartending.
