This blog started as an ode to our favorite funny women, and has since grown into a medium in which we explore feminism and women's rights, things that make us laugh...and also give crazy love to funny women.

“We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.”

“Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.

And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.”

re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different

My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.

As a woman, I know you’re young but you gotta hear it now,the most valuable part about you is your brain. Get an education,don’t let anybody tell you that your body or the size that you wear or any of that bullshit matters because it doesn’t. Your brain matters, so be the smart girl in the room because to be funny you have to be smart, because you have to get the joke.

“Where else in cinema or a big film franchise is there a female character that is not just supplementary or additional or the pretty face. She’s a breakthrough, I think. Ron says at the beginning, “I don’t know if we’ll get through a day without Hermione”. She’s like the brains behind the whole operation. And she’s so integral to that trio and to Harry’s success. I think she’s a very important figure.”
