Recent Appellations from Strangers

  • “miss”
  • “sir”
  • “ma’am”
  • “he—she…”
  • “Are you in that cabaret show?”
  • “someone who’s doing something with gender”
  • “Is there a drag show going on right now?”
  • “DAMNNN”
  • “Is there a rehearsal going on for a drag show right now?”
  • “bro”

Living in a body that most people misgender by virtue of its physical properties (its pecs rather than breasts, the squareness of its jaw, that ever-peppering stubble) can be frustrating, to say the least.

Top Story

Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, founder of Women on Web, has been pushing against anti-abortion legislation since her days aboard the ocean’s first mobile clinic. On a mission to reduce suffering, Gomperts took to the sea, providing women with vital healthcare information and safe, supervised abortions when they were otherwise unattainable. Now fully landlocked, Gomperts and her team are still supplying information and medication online. Their past ventures offer a haunting glimpse into what the U.S.’s female population can expect if recent restrictions on women’s health clinics continue at their current pace.

Female architects are finally being recognized as a global mainstay, after decades of misogyny-fueled oppression and discrimination.

Thirteen-year-old Mo’ne Davis is far more than just a novelty: she’s a force to be reckoned with in a sport that’s been historically accommodating to white males. At 5’4, Mo’ne throws 70 MPH and is the first girl to ever pitch a shutout in Little League World Series. The fame brought by the anomaly of a female player advancing so far will no doubt provide Davis with ample opportunities for future play, but many look forward to the day when the presence of girls and women in official baseball play isn’t such an anomaly.

Will feminists ever unanimously advocate on behalf of sex workers? While the freedom to choose the world’s oldest profession may inspire an avid discussion, it’s the keyword “choice” that conveys much of the problem. Women who opt to enter sex work are disproportionately outnumbered by those who are trafficked or exploited into the industry, a detail The Economist makes light of in a recent article focused on the “luxury” and “safety” of internet-based sex work.
