The new campaign, IMPACT 10X10X10, is a one-year pilot effort that aims to engage governments, corporations and universities to make concrete commitments to women's empowerment and gender equality.
With scandals happening on a weekly, and even daily basis surrounding the majority of these figures, it's hard to pinpoint those who have actually had a positive effect on society, who we as college students can look up to.
When I began reading all the "anticipated films of 2015" lists, it became pretty clear pretty quick that my own version of that list would differ greatly from most of what I was seeing.
You can't talk about any violence against women and not talk to the men who are mostly perpetuating the violence. You can't talk about access to equal pay for women without talking to men; no country in the world has been able to achieve that without speaking to the men.
In 2014 the word "feminism" was all over the media, from politics to music, reaching audiences it never has before. Here were some of the most notable moments.
The path back to life manifests in crazy twists and turns. Like many, I was born to a father that wanted a son first. As such, I became the boy that my father wanted in girl's clothing (sort of).

Anyone who wishes to speak as a leader would be wise to read the transcript of her talk and watch the videos of her delivering in.
