Comedian Whitney Cummings Teases New Book Cover

Actress Whitney Cummings is just fine, okay? At least that’s what she wants us to believe in her new memoir titled, I’m Fine…And Other Lies.

It’s a lie we’ve all told someone (or even ourselves) at some point. Oh dear. Today is the day I get to reveal the cover of this book. It’s now available for pre-order! And yes I almost drowned shooting this. (Link to pre order in my bio!). 📷: @jill.greenberg… Read More

That’s not what it is. We’re proud of our bodies. We’re proud of who we are. We’re made the way we are. Why do we… Read More

Emma Watson Gets Real About The Pressure Of Being A “Role Model”

It’s no surprise that Emma Watson has been dubbed a role model thanks to her activism for gender equality and consistent efforts to apply feminism to every aspect of her life. She even brought Gloria Steinem to an advance screening Beauty and the Beast to ensure that her portrayal of Belle got the feminist stamp of approval.
