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...

Boy who stole Life magazine with Beatles on cover returns it to library 50 years later

50 years ago, a boy named Brian stole a copy of Life magazine from an Ohio library that sported a photo of The Beatles on its back cover. But this week he decided to give the book back, along with an apology note: "Hello. I stole this magazine from the Parma Ridge Road library when I was a kid. I'm sorry I took it.

The Best — & Worst — Types Of Alcohol For Your Skin

It's two weeks into January, and if you've resolved to go dry — cutting out alcohol — you might be feeling a change of heart heading into the weekend. While it's no beauty elixir, one glass of red wine a day is okay, even healthy, some might say. But when you start your morning with a round of mimosas at brunch, down a vodka shot around midnight, and account for a few beers in between — the repercussions are not so fun. Not only does it mess with your clarity of mind, drinking can seriously fuc...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Right: Congress' Interns & Staffers Deserve A Living Wage

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez set her sights this week on a longtime D.C. issue barely any members of Congress have addressed in the past: the archaic tradition of unpaid internships and refusal to offer paid staffers a living wage.

These 3 Women Have All Created A Stage For Themselves — & They're Using It For Good

As Shakespeare once proclaimed, “All the world’s a stage.” And for three NYC-based movers and shakers — Met Opera dancer , , and philanthropist — this sentiment couldn’t be truer (though, a more accurate update could be “All the world’s her stage”). One common thread we learned from these powerhouse women, despite their varying creative fields, is that they’re not interested in seeking out someone else’s stage to act as a supporting player, but rather, they’re creating their own spotlight a...
