Queen Vs New Product Line Is A Game Changer For Feminine Wellness Betches

In case you missed it, Queen V is a female-run company that shares my frustration with mainstream feminine hygiene products: they’re gross, expensive, loaded with chemicals, and—in my personal experience—work about half the time. (If you’re internally rolling your eyes right now, you are either a man or have never had a vaginal issue. I will not be accepting comments from either group at this time.) Queen V’s products one-up existing products at every turn: they’re affordable, formulated with your comfort and health in mind, and f*cking cute. (Sue me, I love a good bathroom shelf aesthetic.)  I’m not just …

Federal judge says thousands more could be included in lawsuit over family separations

(CNN)Potentially thousands more parents and children the US government split up at the southern border will now be included in a lawsuit over family separations, a judge ruled Friday. The Ms. L et al. vs. Immigration and Customs Enforcement et al. case was initially prompted by the separation of a Congolese woman and her 7-year-old daughter.
