Excuse me @/writers & Gubler- he better not be dead, thinking of leaving, kidnapped, damaged beyond repair or anything! Please.
We all know what happened with the episode named ‘Derek’.
Plus it’s written by Erica and Kirsten and they’re usually always whopper episodes (with important/life-crushing storylines)

Five free things to do to help women directors

1. Make a request to purchase their work at your local library

I get it, not everyone can shell out $30-50 for a DVD of every rare movie they want to see. But you know who does have that kind of money? Your library. Hurry up and do it quickly though because libraries often will limit their collections to things that came out within the last year or two.

2. Check out their work from your local library 

Did you know that libraries pay royalties to the artists every time you check something out? Did you know that libraries are also a great way to find all those hard to find often out of print works that continue to become obscure as mediums shift. Did you throw out your old DVD player? Don’t have a blu-ray? No problem! Most libraries are now offering streaming video. As long as you have a library account you can now stream anything from Joanna Hogg to Chantal Akerman in good conscience.

3. Review their work

So many times I go to check out a movie on imdb, letterboxd or amazon and find nothing in the review section. Get in the habit of writing reviews for the stuff you like, even the stuff you don’t like telling people not to waste their time! Bad reviews have prompted me to write good ones to counter people’s opinions I thought were wrong. Good ones have helped me watch movies I might not otherwise have seen. I’ve also used reviews to give trigger warnings or to warn people off poor prints of movies. They’re useful and they help people discover great art. 

4. Follow their social media accounts

Increasingly we’re living in an era where social media is a kingmaker. People make professional connections their all the time but I’ve been dispirited to see so many talented wonderful directors who barely have any followers. This is a great way to interact with directors you like and get updates on their projects right from the source. 

5. Fill out their wiki pages

There is nothing more depressing than when I Google a filmmaker to find out more about them and find their wiki page woefully out of date, if it exists at all. Wiki has a huge problem with a lack of female contributors and this translates into a lack of pages on women filmmakers and their work. After you watch a movie, go to its wiki page and see if it has a summary. If not, write one! If you watch a movie and notice that there’s no biographical info on the director create a page. 

Remedying Bra Fit Issues

If you find that you have some signs of poor fit in your bras, the following chart outlines what the typical explanation for each issue is. Please note that this chart is not absolutely definitive and just serves as a general guideline on the first step to remedy common fitting issues. For more specific suggestions on how to fix any fit issues you may experience, we suggest submitting a [Fit Check] post.

Fit Issue: Band rides up

Explanation:  Your band is too large

Remedy:  Go down a band size while maintaining cup volume*

Fit Issue:  Band is uncomfortably tight

Explanation:  Your band is too small or your cups are too small

Remedy:  Try the bra on backwards; if it still feels too tight, go up a band size while maintaining cup volume*. If it is now comfortable, your cups are too small, so go up a cup size in the same band size.

Fit Issue:  Straps dig into your shoulders

Explanation:  Your band is too large (so you are compensating the lack of support by over tightening your straps)

Remedy:  Go down a band size while maintaining cup volume*

Fit Issue:  Straps fall off your shoulders

Explanation: Your band is too large (so the straps are too wide set for your frame)

Remedy: Go down a band size while maintaining cup volume*

Fit Issue: Cups have wrinkles

Explanation:  Your cups are too large, or are the wrong shape

Remedy:  Go down a cup volume, or try a different shape

Fit Issue: Cups are overflowing somewhere

Explanation:  Your cups are too small, or are the wrong shape

Remedy:  Go up a cup volume, or try a different shape

Fit Issue:  Empty space between underwires and the outer side of your breasts

Explanation:  Wires are too wide (either due to the cup being too large or simply because you have narrow roots)

Remedy:  Go down a cup volume, or find a bra with narrower wires

Fit Issue:  Underwires are sitting on your breast tissue

Explanation:  Wires are too narrow (either due to cup being too small or simply because you have wide roots)

Remedy:  Go up a cup volume, or find a bra with wider wires

Fit Issue:  Gore (bit between the cups) does not touch your sternum

Explanation:  Cups are too small or your breasts are too close set for the width of the gore

Remedy:  Go up a cup volume or try bras with narrower gores (like plunges)

*Please keep in mind that cup size is not static. Remember the concept of sister sizing: to maintain cup volume, when you go down a band size, you must go up a cup size, and vice versa. For example, 34B = 32C, 28E = 30DD, 36G = 34GG, etc. Please pay close attention to when this chart suggests changing band size while maintaining cup size, when it suggests changing cup volume while maintaining band size, and when it suggests changing both.

Also note that each “remedy” operates under the assumption that the corresponding fit issue is the only one you experience. If you are experiencing more than one issue, combine the two remedies. For example, if your band rides up and you have spillage in your cups, you would want to go down one band size and up one cup volume. Keeping the concept of sister sizing in mind, if you were hypothetically trying on a 36B and experienced these two issues, you would want to next try a 34D.
