I’m not quite sure who to reprimand first here: the media for being all to eager to once again equate curvy bodies with the legend of the Hottentot Venus, or tennis player Caroline Wozniacki for believing she was being hilarious by stuffing her shirt and shorts to emulate Serena Williams’ bodacious figure in a recent match. Either way, it was an incredibly stupid move. But was Caroline really being racist in her so-called mimicry of Serena?

The Grammy nominees were announced last night, in a ceremony hosted by Taylor Swift and LL Cool Jay (which also featured Swift’s rap stylings), and there’s a lot to be excited about. We couldn’t help but notice, however, that the “Album Of The Year” nominees this year are awfully white and male.

In October, after Taylor Swift made some controversial comments about not wanting to be called a feminist, we rounded up some other famous and accomplished women who have also eschewed the label. In light of Carla Bruni’s recent Vogue interview, in which she declared that women today “don’t need feminism,” we thought we’d take another look at this growing trend. It’s always interesting when successful and powerful women, whose careers almost certainly wouldn’t have been possible without feminism, admit to being alienated from, uninterested in, or plainly against the movement. Here are six more women who have thumbed their noses at the label.

All right, maybe we’re being a little unkind to poor Pippa Middleton. Her book, Celebrate has been having a very hard time after being trashed by critics and facing lackluster sales. In response, Amazon has cut the sale price of Middleton’s book in half. This is probably quite sad for her, and not entirely unexpected to us, but we thought it would also be a good time to take a look at some books written by women that didn’t get half of the publicity that Celebrate did. Check out the female nominees (and two winners) of this year’s National Book Awards.
