Oh, man, do I have a lot to share this week! Last week was a little light (and late), but this week is back on schedule and better than ever, filled with wonderful stories about powerful, inspiring women.
When I think of abbreviations like Ms. and Mr. and Miss, it’s just one of those things that I assume has always been around. It was so interesting to read how this abbreviation came into daily use.
I love interviews like these. I find it helpful to read about how others organize their days as I feel like I’m still working on my routine now that I’m finished with school. I will definitely be thinking about how to incorporate some of what she says into my life.
The author of this article interviews an author who wrote a book that explores the “food stories” of very different yet prominent women throughout history. One quote sticks with me: “We’re meant to read the lives of important people as if they never bothered with breakfast, lunch or dinner, or took a coffee break, or stopped for a hot dog on the street, or wandered downstairs for a few spoonfuls of chocolate pudding in the middle of the night,” Shapiro writes.”
While the UN does have its flaws, there is something to be said for the effort they put in to hearing and trying war crimes. I admire these women for their courage in speaking out against what they have gone through.
I’m glad that women in Zanzibar are finally given the chance to learn how to swim thanks to this project that supplies them with burkinis and gives swimming lessons.
If you want some matriarchy in your life, take a look at this photo journal. Fascinating to read about a village where women make all the decisions.
Love, love, love this story! Girls are just as good as boys if not better and I love that these young girls are going out there and playing a sport that they love. So inspiring!
