Kesha without the $

This week I spent mesmerized behind a computer screen, watching both of Kesha’s new music videos on repeat with a lump in my throat. Praying and Woman are just two of the 14 tracks that make up Rainbow, her first album in 4 years, which is expected to drop August 11th. Kesha, once known as Ke$ha, the “$” as a subtle nudge to how broke she was at the time (actually) has come a long way since she was brushing…

A Q&A with Eleanor Wheeler: Disabled Activist & Social Media Queen

Meet Eleanor Wheeler, a badass disabled 17-year-old queer activist from Orange County working to erase ableism from activist spaces. Founder of We Exist Collective, The Superhero Project, and a social media queen on Twitter and Insta @elliewheels - the Mack In Style team was dying to know more about this badass lady in action. This week, I was fortunate enough to chat with Eleanor about her story, her movement, and the fact that the disabled communities aren't looking for any…

Intersectional Feminism: A Starter Book List

Intersectional feminism. It’s a term that is gaining momentum in the media, especially in the wake of the Women’s March on DC. In a nutshell, it is the idea that we have to pay equal attention to issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality in order to truly be feminists. All of these issues are connected. We cannot fix one if we don’t fix them all, so I have put together a reading list to up our feminism game. The…

Stop Talking About Feminism.

Attention WORLD: lets stop talking about feminism! Enough is enough, and debating the legitimacy of the movement is giving me a headache. I'll just dump my coffee on the next male who tells me that he was born to be a CEO and I a secretary. I'll attribute his misogyny to an uneducated parental figure. "THE WORLD IS NOT READY FOR A FEMALE PRESIDENT," said the bro who is entirely unaware that women have held presidential positions (in other countries) for…
