• Ashley Judd dissects the media and Internet speculation over her "puffy" look — arguing (quite successfully) that "the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle."
