Take Us Back To MOTHERSHIP Festival

We’ll be here, reminiscing

This year’s MOTHERSHIP Festival was a day-to-night event showcasing a diverse roster of musicians and panels—and every single person involved was woman-identifying. And, as described by the festival’s founder Laura Wise, attendees are told that “if you identify partially or wholly as a woman, then you are welcome.” Basically, it’s a space free of the kind of toxic masculinity that makes existing in our society hard sometimes.

The 2018 iteration of MOTHERSHIP featured panels on everything from the power of Reiki to masturbation, and there were activities like sound baths in case attendees just wanted to relax. And after a day of learning in a safe space, free of judgment, attendees got to let loose to the sounds of tons of women musicians—a rarity at festivals, where lineups mainly consist of men. 

We're missing the MOTHERSHIP vibe, but at least it was captured in photos. Swipe through, below, for some of our favorite moments from the festival.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
