- Bates Motel will be returning for its fifth and final season on February 20, 2017 at 10PM (it's also Rih's 29th birthday!)
Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel's ex-husband has been arrested after showing up at their daughter's school and allegedly yelling "I will destroy you" at her. She also alleges that he sent her "hundreds" of abusive emails.
Jason Hoppy was charged with stalking and harassment after the incident on Friday, January 27th. Hoppy denies the charges.
Frankel and Hoppy were married from 2010 to 2012 and had a contentious divorce and custody battle over their daughter.
Teri Hatcher will join the cape-tastic series this winter for a multi-episode arc in a mysterious villainess role.

Spending my birthday with the #Scandal family. No place I'd rather be. I can't believe this is our 6th season. Jeez Louize. I LOVE THESE PEOPLE.
I am so sorry that I did not respond earlier to the feelings and valid concerns many of you have expressed in the last few days about a story that was published this weekend by the Los Angeles Times. I had not checked my phone through the weekend and only saw the article last night. I am deeply disturbed by the way this story has misrepresented me and manipulated my words in printing them out of context. We all believed we were in a forum to brainstorm about ways in which women in the industry could thrive and that was my heart’s intention. I have always and will always support the empowerment and the voices of black women and women of color. It is inaccurate that I did not let Jessica express herself, she very passionately and eloquently spoke her mind and I listened and engaged in what she was saying. In fact I was very disappointed that the conversation was cut short and not able to continue. I am devastated that something that left me feeling inspired and empowered has since been depicted as a cat fight, and worse yet painted in this way by a female journalist. Rest assured, I will right this wrong…
Lady Gaga is the new face of Tiffany & Co.'s new collection, Tiffany HardWear. She will star in the brand's 60-second short film that will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The campaign was created by creative director Grace Coddington and features Gaga talking about empowerment and her own creative journey. "Challenging the status quo is who I am. I love to change. It's pretentious to talk about how creative you are. I don't feel that way at all. I think it's empowering and important. And I'm coming for you." she says in a new preview of the ad, posted by Tiffany & Co. below.

On a recent episode of Quantico, Chopra's character made a statement about not needing to use her sexuality to defeat the enemy. Priyanka recently spoke about feminism and her role in shaping her character into someone more progressive and empowering.
On talking with showrunner Josh Safran about altering the scene:"The only thing the writers want with this show all the time is to make it topical and make it relevant. It’s so cool to be in a room with young people like that, and that’s how this scene happened as well. It was just a dialogue between me and Josh, and he was so open to it. He was like, "It’s such a great idea, and it’ll be such a great example for people."
She also talks about wanting to advocate for young women and choosing when to speak and how to present things peacefully.
On whether or not it's feminist to show off your sexual side:"First of all, feminism is not man-hating, not man-berating. It is not saying we are better. It is just saying we want the same opportunities, and we want to be able to make decisions on our own without being judged for them."
"The fact that a woman has a choice to be how she wants, to do how she wants, without a guy to think, 'because she’s pretty or because she’s in a dress, she’s asking for it or she wants it.' I think those are the lines that are blurred that need to be addressed. Just like guys who buy their fancy cars and toys, women like to do it too, but that has nothing to do with our feminist point of view. The world, the way we look at women and sexuality, is what needs to change—not our behavior, not who we are, not what we say."

- 10 books on the history of reproductive rights/reproductive justice
- 5 books on the problematization of 'the female body'
- 5 books on the problematization of other bodies
Dorothy Roberts, Killing the Black Body: Race, Reprodution and the Meaning of Liberty
By using the history of how American law--beginning with slavery--has treated the issue of the state's right to interfere with the black woman's body, [Roberts] explosively and effectively makes the case for the legal redress to the racist implications of current policy with regards to 1) access to and coercive dispensing of birth control to poor black women 2) the criminalization of parenting by poor black women who have used drugs 3) the stigmatization and devaluation of poor black mothers under the new welfare provisions, and 4) the differential access to and disproportionate spending of social resources on the new reproductive technologies used by wealthy white couples to insure genetically related offspring.
Loretta Ross et al, Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Justice
Undivided Rights presents a fresh and textured understanding of the reproductive rights movement by placing the experiences, priorities, and activism of women of color in the foreground. Using historical research, original organizational case studies, and personal interviews, the authors illuminate how women of color have led the fight to control their own bodies and reproductive destinies.
Elena R. Gutiérrez, Fertile Matters: The Politics of Mexican-Origin Women's Reproduction
Using the coercive sterilization of Mexican-origin women in Los Angeles as a case study, Gutierrez opens a dialogue on the racial politics of reproduction, and how they have developed for women of Mexican origin in the United States. She illustrates how the ways we talk and think about reproduction are part of a system of racial domination that shapes social policy and affects individual women's lives.
Karen Stote, An Act of Genocide: Colonialism and the Sterilization of Aboriginal Women
An Act of Genocide unpacks long-buried archival evidence to begin documenting the forced sterilization of Aboriginal women in Canada. Grounding this evidence within the context of colonialism, the oppression of women and the denial of Indigenous sovereignty, Karen Stote argues that this coercive sterilization must be considered in relation to the larger goals of Indian policy — to gain access to Indigenous lands and resources while reducing the numbers of those to whom the federal government has obligations.
Rickie Soligner, Pregnancy and Power: A Short History of Reproductive Policies in America
Leading historian Rickie Solinger argues that a woman's control over her body involves much more than the right to choose an abortion. Reproductive politics were at play when slaveholders devised breeding schemes, when the U.S. government took Indian children from their families in the nineteenth century, and when doctors pressed Latina women to be sterilized in the 1970s. Tracing the diverse plot lines of women s reproductive lives throughout American history, Solinger redefines the idea of reproductive freedom, putting race and class at the center of the effort to control sex and pregnancy in America over time.
Jeanne Flavin, Our Bodies, Our Crimes: The Policing of Women's Reproductive Rights
Jeanne Flavin looks beyond abortion to document how the law and the criminal justice system police women's rights to conceive, to be pregnant, and to raise their children. Through vivid and disturbing case studies, Flavin shows how the state seeks to establish what a good woman and fit mother should look like and whose reproduction is valued.
Laura Kaplan,The Story of Jane: The Legendary Underground Feminsit Abortion Service
An extraordinary history by one of its members, this is the first account of Jane's evolution, the conflicts within the group, and the impact its work had both on the women it helped and the members themselves. This book stands as a compelling testament to a woman's most essential freedom--control over her own body--and to the power of women helping women.
Helena Silverstein, Girls on the Stand: How Courts Fail Pregnant Minors
Girls on the Stand convincingly demonstrates that safeguards promised by parental involvement laws do not exist in practice and that a legal process designed to help young women make informed decisions instead victimizes them. In making this case, the book casts doubt not only on the structure of parental involvement mandates but also on the naive faith in law that sustains them.
Johanna Schoen,Choice and Coercion: Birth Control, Sterilization, and Abortion in Public Health and Welfare
Schoen situates the state's reproductive politics in a national and global context. Widening her focus to include birth control, sterilization, and abortion policies across the nation, she demonstrates how each method for limiting unwanted pregnancies had the potential both to expand and to limit women's reproductive choices. Such programs overwhelmingly targeted poor and nonwhite populations, yet they also extended a measure of reproductive control to poor women that was previously out of reach.
Susan Bordo, Unbearable Weight: Feminism, Western Culture and the Body
From an immensely knowledgeable feminist perspective, in engaging, jargonless (!) prose, Bordo analyzes a whole range of issues connected to the body—weight and weight loss, exercise, media images, movies, advertising, anorexia and bulimia, and much more—in a way that makes sense of our current social landscape.
Silvia Federici, Caliban and the Witch: Women, The Body and Primitive Accumulation
Caliban and the Witch is a history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch-hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the battle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization.
Rose Weitz and Samantha Kwan, The Politics of Women's Bodies
The Politics of Women's Bodies, Fourth Edition, is an anthology covering the issues surrounding women's bodies. Threads running throughout the book include the distribution of power between men and women, how that affects cultural standards, and how those standards subsequently serve as powerful and political tools for controlling women's appearance, sexuality, and behavior. This book fills an important niche not covered by other books: focus on women's bodies, social control, and agency. The new edition includes updated readings which engage diversity and highlight cross-cultural relevance where appropriate
Emily Martin,The Woman in the Body: A Cultural Analysis of Reproduction
A bold reappraisal of science and society, The Woman in the Body explores the different ways that women's reproduction is seen in American culture. Contrasting the views of medical science with those of ordinary women from diverse social and economic backgrounds, anthropologist Emily Martin presents unique fieldwork on American culture and uncovers the metaphors of economy and alienation that pervade women's imaging of themselves and their bodies.
Helen King, Hippocrates' Women: Reading the Female Body in Ancient Greece
Hippocrates' Woman presents an arresting study of the origins of gynaecology, an exploration of how the interior workings of the female body were understood and the influence of Hippocrates' theories on the gynaecology of subsequent ages.
Joey L. Mogul, Andrea J. Ritchie, Kay Whitlock, Queer (In)Justice: The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States
The authors unpack queer criminal archetypes--like "gleeful gay killers," "lethal lesbians," "disease spreaders," and "deceptive gender benders"--to illustrate the punishment of queer expression, regardless of whether a crime was ever committed. A groundbreaking work that turns a "queer eye" on the criminal legal system, Queer (In)Justice illuminates and challenges the many ways in which queer lives are criminalized, policed, and punished.
Thea Hillman, Intersex: (For Lack of a Better Word)
Intersex (For Lack of a Better Word) chronicles one person’s search for self in a world obsessed with normal. In first-person prose as intimate as a diary, Thea Hillman redefines memoir in a series of compelling stories that take a no-holds-barred look at sex, gender, family, and community.
Dean Spade: Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics & the Limits of Law
Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law raises revelatory critiques of the current strategies pivoting solely on a "legal rights framework," but also points to examples of an organized grassroots trans movement that is demanding the most essential of legal reforms in addition to making more comprehensive interventions into dangerous systems of repression—and the administrative violence that ultimately determines our life chances. Setting forth a politic that goes beyond the quest for mere legal inclusion, Normal Life is an urgent call for justice and trans liberation, and the radical transformations it will require.
Susan Wendell, The Rejected Body: Feminist Philosophical Reflctions on Disability
This study applies a feminist philosophical perspective to theoretical and practical issues of physical disability, such as who should be identified as disabled, whether disability is biomedical, social or both, what causes disability and what could cure it, and whether scientific efforts to eliminate disabling physical conditions are morally justified. The book also argues that feminist theorizing has been skewed toward non-disabled experience, and that the knowledge of people with disabilities must be integrated into feminist ethics, feminist discussions of bodily life, and feminist criticism of the cognitive and social authority of medicine.
Eli Clare, Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness and Liberation
Eli Clare's revelatory writing about his experiences as a white disabled genderqueer activist/writer established him as one of the leading writers on the intersections of queerness and disability and permanently changed the landscape of disability politics and queer liberation. At the root of Clare's exploration of environmental destruction and capitalism, sexuality and institutional violence, gender and the body politic, is a call for social justice movements that are truly accessible to everyone.

Not much but it does give us a glimpse of costumes and sets. And its finally in production!
We’ve reached a point in Degrassi’s history where it’s gone beyond just being a relatable teen drama, or a show that’s just ripping stories from the headlines. Last year, Degrassi’s team sat down to create a story about people being welcoming toward a group of others fleeing terrors we could never imagine.
We watched those stories earlier this month, as Degrassi opened its doors to Syrian refugees with open arms. This weekend we watched as President Trump’s Executive Order denied citizens from seven Muslim majority nations (including Syria) entry into America.
