Rachel, Creator/Editor-in-Chief
Bombshell - Watch Now



Fox News has never been one to shy away from a scandal. In this brilliant new film, we see a dramatized version of what it was like inside the television studio during 2016's tumultuous sexual harassment charges against Roger Ailes and how a group of women started to have a voice. Unfortunately, the end shows there is still so much need for improvement.

Emma, Managing Print Editor
Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet - Read Now



I am on the third book right now and I remain entranced by the characters. These Italian novels are, at their core, about women and female friendships, in all their strange complexities. The main characters Elena and Lila are incredibly different from one another and develop so beautifully and humanly throughout the novels. The books work with themes of womanhood, sex and love, assault, friendship, and class. You will fall in love with these books! (Also, check out the first book of the series, My Brilliant Friend, adapted for HBO).

Hannah, Poetry Editor
innerFrench - Listen Now



Now that I'm in France, I'm really embracing some French language podcasts to improve my skills. It's easy to get into this podcast because they discuss relevant topics like being gay in France, Islamaphobia and France, and other social issues that you wouldn't normally learn in class. 

Cian, Prose Editor
4Ocean - Shop Now



The 4Ocean brand has exploded over the last few years, from making simple beaded bracelets made from recycled plastics to water bottles, reusable straws, and reusable grocery bags. I started wearing their bracelets a few years ago and loved the minimalist design and their mission to remove a pound of ocean plastics for every product purchased. Recently, I've been loving their reusable water bottle, straw, and tote bag because they are all very light and compact, making them perfect for eco-friendly travelers. 

Yasmeen, Social Media Director
Sex Education - Watch Now



This is a funny and emotional Netflix series about British high schoolers. It covers a lot of topics from sexuality to issues like bullying and anxiety.  It is an incredible show and everyone should watch it!
