Happy International Women’s Day ladies! Celebrate being a woman, girl power, and changing the world for generations to come. We’ve come so far over the years, but we still have tons to do. For information, links, stats, and more, click the link below!
So, Chris Brown gets to perform at the Grammys tonight? In my opinion, he should be in jail. I have nothing more to say except read this article. It says it all.

I recently stumbled upon an organization called “V-DAY”. V-DAY is “an organized response against violence toward women”. It stands up against violent acts toward women all around the world; working to raise awareness, make communities safer, and to aid those who have been victims. The word is being spread throughout college campuses, through different campaigns with all sorts of target areas, and proves to us how important, and achievable it is for women to have a voice. The site (link below) seems to be very well organized, super informant, and completely pink. To clarify just exactly what V-DAY stands for, here is the mission statement:
- V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women.
- V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely.
- V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now.
- V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities.
- V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.
- V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops.
- V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine’s Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.
- V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
I highly recommend taking a peek at the website and getting involved if you feel strongly about what the cause works toward.

I saw this piece of news the other day, and found it pretty interesting. Good for Sophia Bush for standing up to this. Girls shouldn’t feel like they need to eat less. We’re already pressured by society enough; we don’t need clothing lines to help us view ourselves negatively. This isn’t something that should be seen as “okay”.
Sophia Bush has declared war on Urban Outfitters after they marketted a t-shirt with the words ‘Eat Less’ on the front.
The One Tree Hill actress, in an entry on her personal blog, called for them to issue an apology and make a donation to a charity for eating disorders, and said, “It’s like handing a suicidal person a loaded gun. You should know better.”
Sophia wrote, “To promote starvation? To promote anorexia, which leads to heart disease, bone density loss, and a slew of other health problems, not least of all psychological issues that NEVER go away? Shame on you. I will no longer be shopping at your stores. And I will encourage the tens of thousands of female supporters I have to do the same.”source.
