This is what Barbie would look like if she were scaled to the body size of the average 19-year-old woman in the US.  (x)

Given the negative impact that playing with Barbies can have on girls’ self esteem and eating patterns, how hard would it really be for Mattel to make Barbies with healthier & more realistic bodies?

msnbc:

Shoe-maker Mizuno may want to consider Democratic Texas Sen. Wendy Davis as the brand’s new spokesperson. Since Davis stood in an all-day filibuster to block an abortion vote in the Texas Senate, the sneakers she wore–Mizuno Wave Rider 16 running shoes–have become the top-selling women’s shoe in all categories on Amazon. And as sales for the filibuster sneakers have spiked, the Amazon reviews have emerged as a political forum for the abortion debate.

I am getting a pair. The reviews have spoken.

“How much does Saudi Arabia hate women? So much so that 15 girls died in a school fire in Mecca in 2002, after “morality police” barred them from fleeing the burning building — and kept firefighters from rescuing them — because the girls were not wearing headscarves and cloaks required in public. And nothing happened. No one was put on trial. Parents were silenced.”

roseaposey:

“Judgments”I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.
