Beyond Celebrity News

 

Plugging into celebrity news can be fun—who’s dating who, who’s having a baby or who landed the juicy role in your favorite book-to-screen film - it’s also super important to stay up-to-date on news that directly affects your community, your country, and your world.

Magazines

 

The most popular magazines sell us an ideal that doesn't exist. They often make us feel bad about ourselves, compare ourselves to each other, and spend money on things we think will make us "better."

For a long time, many women were expected to become wives and mothers, without having careers. Now, it’s a lot different. We believe in women having the freedom to choose what inspires her most, whether that’s being a stay-at-home mom, a CEO by day and mom by night, or someone who doesn’t want kids at all.

Access to Education

 

In countries where women have very few rights, access to education is limited for girls. Education is everything. It’s the thing that empowers someone to be powerful, free, and a contribution to society. It’s not right, it’s not fair, and we are taking a stand for changing it.

In unstable and war-torn countries, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda, rape is used as a tool of war. These actions not only reduce women to weapons (an extreme form of objectification) but also cause severe emotional and physical trauma. Giving this issue a voice is an important action in creating change.
