I’d put off watching Pink but tonight I felt brave enough to go watch it. It’s not perfect, but it doesn’t need to be. It makes its point well enough.

If you’re fan of sci-fi television or a 90s kid, you know Joss Whedon. The man created Buffy, he made FireFly; he is a Geek God. Before him, women in science fiction television were portrayed as damsels in distress or sexualised goddesses. But, Whedon has never shied away from his interest in portraying strong women. He’s actually been asked why he likes to write female leads. His infamous …

Image-1-4

Red carpet, flashing camera lights, white.. er, we meant wild excitement… and this time: Priyanka Chopra presenting awards. What’s not to love about the Oscars right? (Except that the event gives #AllWhiteErrything a whole new meaning.) Still, clothes be clothes, and our love for cinderella ball gowns and sophisticated dresses can’t be quelled by long standing racism. These are our picks for #AllWhite Oscar outfits in …
