    Hana Mae Lee’s birthday is today and while she’s best known as the incredibly soft spoken yet powerful beatboxer Lilly in Pitch Perfect, the real Hana Mae is a bona fide badass and funny as hell. To celebrate her birthday, we’ve created a wish list of literary roles that we’d love to see Hana Mae Lee play. Listen up, Hollywood. We’ve got some big plans.

    Leslie Knope is a cultural icon. She’s kind, assertive, and feels like your best friend. She’s so incredible that we often need to remind ourselves that she’s a fictional character. She’s too wonderful to be confined to a half-hour of television! We’re celebrating Amy Poehler’s birthday and are wishing Leslie Knope a very happy birthday right along with her by looking back at some of our favorite lessons from Parks and Recreation. And while she’s no longer dispensing her wisdom on a weekly basis, Leslie did give us some incredibly evergreen words to live by.

  • We have apps that tell us where the moon is in its rotation and offer our friends sage with a straight face. We put our best ladies first and are glued to Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman’s Twitter feeds. We are the Basic Witches Jaya and Jess write about in their new book, aptly subtitled “How to summon success, banish drama, and raise hell with your coven.” To celebrate this book’s release, here are five of our favorite covens in pop culture.

    Offices aren’t usually known for being spiritual havens of self-empowerment. Flex time, employee perks, and a focus on results rather than timesheets may be making life a little bit nicer for those in the cubicle trenches, but what’s a modern witch to do when she feels her joy starting to flicker like the fluorescents above?

    Thankfully, there are a lot of ways to inject a little self-care into the office space, and we’re here to help you embrace your inner witch…and make Mondays a little more magical!

    Whether you live in a studio apartment the size of a postage stamp or a four-bedroom house with room to spare, every home deserves to have its own feminist library. What better way to celebrate Women’s Equality Day than to curate a library of your own! So, dust off those bookshelves, pull up that wish list, and blast Lesley Gore until the neighbors complain. Because today’s all about surrounding yourself with the books and smashing the patriarchy.

  • Not too long ago, geekdom was seen only as the realm of the uber-nerd; a place for overweight, under-socialized weirdos to indulge their love of comic books and video games away from the rest of the world. The essence of that is still true — fandoms are all about a shared love of fictional worlds. But we’ve come a long way from the image of the ‘Comic Book Guy’ in recent years as geek culture has become a mainstream global phenomenon.
