Secret Code: Special Release

Back in December, we introduced you to Mara Lecocq, creator and author of Secret Code. Lecocq created Secret Code for a few reasons, two of which being: she wanted to help with the problem of diversity in technology and leadership and she wanted to create a book that showed young girls of all colors, shapes, and sizes, role models that they could relate to.

When I started college two and a half years ago, I was under the impression that women working on the business side of the music industry were a rarity. It seemed that everywhere I turned I was hearing about the accomplishments of men and that the only places for women in music were onstage, in the photo pit or doing publicity for artists, because those were the only places I had really ever encountered them.

Why We Need a Feminist Fight Club

I’ve recently taken the plunge and decided to join a book club. For someone who genuinely enjoys reading, joining a book club just seemed like a natural progression – I’ll finally get book suggestions from other people besides my mother and I’ll get to engage in intellectually stimulating conversations with people I respect while hopefully eating cheese.

Think Piece: BANKS

BANKS is an artist I’ve had my eye on for quite a while now, mostly after hearing her song, “Waiting Game” back in 2014. I was instantly attracted to the dark, almost whimsical tone and found myself quickly falling in love with all of her songs. I also found myself falling for her openness, her honesty, and her fierceness after “getting to know her” through her videos and interviews on the internet.

The Importance of Strong Female Support

When you tell someone you attended an all-girls catholic high school, you can see their eyes flood with curiosity and critique: “how did she survive the drama?” “is she even capable of socializing with boys?” “does that mean she’s a lesbian?” Mostly you can see confusion as to how someone could live four years without testosterone bouncing off the classroom walls.

Feminism and Art

In college I studied art history, specifically gender roles in modern art. While I thought I would never use the depth in which I studied the interaction of female form in its environment from artists who have long since passed, I realized this studying has helped me construct my own view of how I view feminism. Wow, that was a mouth full. Basically, as a tool for my own confidence I look to the women in these works for support.
