A Wave Of New Bills Would Ban Abortion Before Most Women Even Know They're Pregnant

While President Donald Trump is banking on the power of inflammatory anti-abortion rhethoric to help him win the White House again, conservative lawmakers in state legislatures across the country are laserfocused on taking the fight to the courts. The road to making abortion illegal in the U.S. again is paved with extreme regulations like so-called “hearbeat bills.”Since January, nearly a dozen states have introduced this type of legislation, which bans abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat is ...

This Mom Went To Prison For Enrolling Her Son In A School Outside Her District

The college cheating scandal that has ensnared at least 50 people, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, has sparked a much needed conversation about privilege and money in the U.S. educational system. And while the scam has also produced lots of funny commentary due to the sheer ridiculousness of the lengths these parents went to get their kids into college (like photoshopping their kids' faces onto stock photos of athletes) and the level of privilege these people have (Lough...

Beto O'Rourke Is Already Getting The Rockstar Treatment

Although Beto O'Rourke officially kicked off his presidential campaign on Thursday morning with a video, what everyone will truly remember from his announcement is the dreamy, Americana-infused, Annie Leibovitz-shot Vanity Fair cover story published the day before, in which O'Rourke, who spent his youth as a freewheeling musician, talks in poetry: "Man, I’m just born to be in it."O'Rourke's rise to national superstardom happened when he came closer than anyone expected to beating the loathed Te...

Brothers bring footwear innovation to the former Soviet nation decades after a civil war that changed their lives In 1992, ​Abkhazia was engulfed in a brutal civil war. Situated on the Black Sea in the northwest of Georgia, the disputed region’s inter-ethnic conflict claimed nearly 15,000 lives, left over 8,000 wounded, and uprooted more than 200,000 Georgians fleeing ethnic cleansing at the hands of Abkhaz …

Georgia Rep. Proposes "Testicular Bill Of Rights" In Response To Anti-Abortion Bill

Georgia state Rep. Dar'shun Kendrick has drafted a "Testicular Bill of Rights" to regulate men's reproductive organs, just like the anti-abortion bills proliferating across the country do with women's.Her proposal is in response to a Georgia House committee's approval of a so-called "heartbeat bill," legislation that would outlaw abortion after a fetus' heartbeat is detected. This can happen as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, which is before most women even realize they are pregnant. Abort...

12 Female Tattoo Artists You Should Be Following On Instagram

It's no secret that young people — specifically young women — love tattoos. A decade ago, that was far from the truth, but today, more women than ever don't care what you think about them and their ink. But what about the artists tattooing them? Even though there are more women than ever flocking to tattoo parlors, the artists holding the needles remain predominantly male — a fact that's evident as you scroll through social media.But we think men already get enough attention, so we decided to r...

Here's How Your Birthday Color Can Bring Harmony Into Your Home

Decorating our spaces with intention is a task that's easier dreamt about than done — at the end of the day we lack energy, direction, and inspiration for total home makeovers. But what if elevating our apartments was as easy as incorporating a single color? According to astrologer and metaphysician, Michele Bernhardt, it is.

It Started With A Shooting At Their School. But They Know It's About More Than That.

"I thought I was going to die. As I lay there, I begged God to please make it fast," Aalayah Eastmond, a 17-year-old senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, said, her voice quivering. Testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last Wednesday, she described the oft-told story of February 14, 2018, from her own, terrifying vantage point: She was in her fourth-period Holocaust history class, where the students were presenting projects on campus hate groups.

Why Tibi Founder Amy Smilovic Could Be America’s Most Fascinating Designer

It turns out America’s most coveted and intriguing fashion brand isn’t a new one. Tibi, created and designed by Georgia-born Amy Smilovic — a former advertising exec with no formal training in fashion —has been operating independently for 22 years (that’s like 122 in fashion years). But unlike countless other white-hot brands that have languished nearly as swiftly as they launched, or some legacy labels that lose their way a little bit more with every passing year, Tibi has seemingly done the i...

Red Lipstick Sent A Strong Message At The State Of The Union

At the State of the Union last night, it was hard to ignore the sea of white. In a chamber of the Capitol that's usually bustling with black suits, navy suits, red ties, and blue ties, more than 100 congresswomen chose to wear white as a nod to 20th century suffragettes who fought for women's right to vote — and never backed down.And while that surely made a political statement, there was also another symbolic element to many of these women's looks: red lipstick.It was, in effect, the big beau...

I’m sure there’s a lot of guys that’s in my current situation and trying to convince their significant others also. Below are some reasons why getting a motorcycle is well...
