12 best overalls for women and how to style them

Fashion trends from the ’90s are coming back with a vengeance, and none of them are more fun than overalls. But rather than the boxy, oversized overalls of the decade coming out of your mom’s closet, today’s overalls are sleek and chic.

Women report more side effects than men. Here’s why.

Reports of COVID-19 vaccine side effects support what many have anecdotally observed: Women shoulder the bigger burden.

Among nearly 7,000 reports processed through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System from Dec. 14 to Jan. 13, more than 79% of them came from women. The most frequently reported side effects were headache, fatigue and dizziness.

The 2020 satirical indie horror film Slaxx exposes the horrors associated with the fashion industry when a pair of jeans become possessed by the exploited factory workers who made them. Frustrated by the cynicism of Western consumer society and the layers of injustice fashion generates, the jeans engage in a rampant bloodbath targeting the influencers, vloggers, consumers and fashion store managers that perpetuate the inhumane conditions through which they are produced. Using a combination of gore and comedy, the raging jeans point to an apocalypse fuelled by the perceived immorality of the fast fashion.

Poor factory conditions loom heavy on fast-fashion giant Boohoo. Former High Court judge Sir Brian Leveson has overseen investigations following last year’s scandal into its Leicester supply chain. Just weeks ago, the Levitt report was published causing Boohoo to weed out 122 suppliers who failed to comply with sustainable practices, seeing the retailer rapidly scale back
