Rachel, Creator/Editor-in-Chief
LITTLE WOMEN Film — Watch Now

Like lots of young women, Louisa May Alcott's novel completely changed my perspective on what it meant to be a woman, so much so that I even found a way to write about it for my undergraduate thesis. In Greta Gerwig's new envisioning of the story, the author and the protagonist, Jo March, share a soul in a brilliant, heartwarming, joy of a film (I must admit, I've seen it twice...and would definitely go again).

Emma, Managing Print Editor
A GIRL CALLED SHAMELESS by Laura Steven — Read Now

I loved this book! Coming off of her own nude picture leak, 18-year-old Izzy O’Neil has had it with her state’s lack of revenge porn laws. She and her friends decide to speak to their extremely Republican lawmakers and try to get laws passed to protect young women and men from the shame and torment of revenge porn. In a hilarious and irreverent voice, this YA novel speaks to our modern world and starts a conversation about how we respect what is shared privately, and how to respect victims.

Hannah, Poetry Editor
Ologies with Alie Ward Podcast — Listen now

One of my all-time favorite podcasts, especially for those into science and talk-shows. Host Alie Ward interviews a different -ologist every episode and gets a look inside some new, quirky, and niche scientific fields. (Hagfishology and Cnidariology are some of my favorites.) 

Cian, Prose Editor
Tomboyx Clothing — Buy Now

I discovered Tomboyx about a year ago, and since then I've been buying from them regularly. A queer-owned company, Tomboyx underwear is made with gender non-conforming and transgender people in mind, especially those wanting a more androgynous or masculine look. They are also insanely comfortable, and come in all sorts of styles and colors, and are very size-inclusive.

Yasmeen, Social Media Director
HBO's Sharp Objects — Watch Now

This has been a great limited series based off of the book by Gillian Flynn, starring Amy Adams that one needs to binge!
