She is also bringing to light a problem for female athletes in the US- lack of opportunities to play school-sponsored baseball competitively.

India has made international news in the past two years due to an increase in violent sexual assaults among women. (Or perhaps the media is just finally taking notice.)

Australian model and DJ Ruby Rose recently debuted Break Free, a short film about the fluidity of gender roles, Trans, and an identity that deviates from what society deems as “normal.”
Rose, who stars in the short, appears at the beginning as classically stunning woman. I initially thought I was watching an ad for an expensive French perfume or foreign cosmetic line. However, within two minutes the film took a surprising turn.

All around the world, women’s interest magazines are typically covered by someone who represents the standard of beauty in that area.
The Australian Women’s Weekly has decided that for the month of July that woman should be Turia Pitt.

Okay, this is not something I’m completely proud to admit, but a tampon commercial totally made me tear up. (It’s a timely viewing, as I am quite hormonal at the moment.)
I’m not the only one, though. One of my friends even posted that she watched this with her two sons.
