Millennial Feminism Who thought equal rights could be such a dirty word?  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie gave the commencement speech at Wellesley College this year, dishing out all sorts of knowledge on the graduates and attendees as well. And I think the term “mic dropped” doesn’t even begin to cover her emotionally moving speech this year.

Hair Hater 101 Zendaya is most likely the newest Disney BAMF this year, and she’s not afraid of a challenge-PC or not. In her recent outcry, she takes on haters who come at her for her profound use of wigs, and she takes them down with nothing but grace.

Salt Water Respect Ever thought of becoming a professional female surfer? Take a good look at the World Surfing League before you do. Because just this year, they mandated that both female and male competitors would be treated equally.

Marriage Equality Finally right? You would have thought nothing happened on June 26th. But celebrities took to Twitter and other social media platforms relaying their support as well as grand sighs of relief for SCOTUS finally making it legal for same sex marriage to exist.

The First Black Ballerina How did this take so long? I’m stunned. Misty Copeland started dancing at age 13, later than most, and her stunning story will bring you to tears. It’s about time.

Plus Size Fashion It’s so important to have healthy role models, especially in the fashion industry, and it’s a part of the workforce you don’t see too much into. This teaser for a documentary will provide an in depth look into the often forgotten facet of the clothing industry and model world.
