Nearly 90 percent of maternal deaths are preventable with access to appropriate care, all of which can be provided for as little as $250 per woman.
feminism shouldn't be a bad word. All progressive-thinking people, women and men, should be proud to call themselves feminists, because the many modern feminist flavors all enrich the beautiful bouquet we call womanhood.
In sum, there is a cultural zeitgeist occurring within America at the moment. And that cultural zeitgeist is the fact that our entire society is now paying attention to women's issues such as rape and domestic violence in a way that has never happened before.
These hackers have shown just how important such a campaign it is -- single-handedly refuting any claims that gender inequality and ugly misogyny are no longer a problem.
How will our sons grow to be good men and good fathers if we continue to limit and stifle the role models they have?
The words "man-hating" and "crazy" and "bossy" are still thrown at self-identifying feminists every day, and not just by men or goofy high school students looking for a reaction. Women, indirectly threatened by the words, hurl them as well.
We are living in the year 2014 and we are still fighting for equality between men and women. We are still fighting for equal rights and equal pay. Women should not have to feel afraid to walk alone at night. Women should not be afraid to speak their voices loud and clear. Women should not be afraid to want a higher education, to want to learn.
Feminism and faith should be allies, not enemies. And contrary to many current conversations they are linked in important ways: both part of the problem and part of the solution.
I am so glad to see each of these celebrity students in college. It's enormously inspiring to see a person earning an education not because they need it for financial security, but because they desire it.
A 1940s Juvenile Fiction heroine was a "disruptor" - who lowered temperatures, raised spirits, and healed WW II wounded. --------------------------...
Noah actress, and the cover star of W's June/July 2013 issue, Emma Watson deserves recognition for her recent A-list efforts on the red carpet.
As you can see, the story of Noah was already borrowed and given a new purpose by Hebrew scribes. It has been retold countless times, and the theme is now being used by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky to tell his own idiosyncratic tale of environmental retribution and redemption.
One thing you can't say about Noah, the big budget reimagining of the biblical flood fable (starring Russell Crowe as the titular boat builder) is that it lacks in ambition.
With committed performances and no holier-than-thou overtones, "Noah" is a dreamboat for all sorts of moviegoers. Just as long as you can dismiss some of the murkier storms that precede the rainbow.
How could a film starring Russell Crowe as Noah, Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah, and Emma Watson as the mother of Noah's granddaughters, possibly fail among viewers? Presenting a film "inspired by" the biblical story of Noah in Genesis, of course, is a tall order.
Common threads of a romantic movie a man will watch: The screenplay is written by men, the film is told from the man's perspective and the male lead behaves like a man would in real life and the ending of the film is redemptive.
