BANKSY

By now, we all probably know the political activist, graffiti artist, and film director who works under the pseudonym Banksy. Starting as an underground graffiti artist in Bristol, Banksy’s art include many hidden messages revealing his opinions on politics and society.  Underlying beauty and the stone cold truth are what his works reveal and it’s really something to take in. He has grown a massive following since he first started back in 1992 and we cannot wait to see what he does next.

“In my village there is one girl who is younger than I am who has not been cut because I discussed the issue with her parents. I told them how much the operation had hurt me, how it had traumatized me and made me not trust my own parents. They decided that they did not want this to happen to their daughter.”
Meaza was 10 when she was subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM). She now campaigns to protect other girls from this harmful practice. FGM is declining in Ethiopia and many countries around the world, but still too many girls are at risk. We must do more.
Meaza is inspiration that by speaking up to say NO to this harmful practice, we can change attitudes and change girls’ lives. Add your voice: http://uni.cf/GS14

Why Does Simply Existing as a Woman Have to be a Competition?

But I’m more tuned in to a different form of competitiveness: the ongoing practice of pitting women against each other. It’s sinister and it surrounds us constantly: ‘Who Wore it Better?’ polls in magazines; describing rising female celebrities as “replacing” more established ones; sparking controversy when two women do anything remotely similar (including aging and raising children) around the same time; tabloid covers whenever two female celebrities have dated the same guy; tabloid covers in general; the images passed around on social media that attempt to define “real women” or assert that “I’m not like THOSE girls”…the list is quite long. And it’s more damaging than it seems.
