We have spent the month of March highlighting all of the wonderful contributions that women make and have made in this world, but we left something out. When we talk about history, we must include the good, the bad and the ugly. So, while we celebrate the strides that women are making, let’s remember this side of history, the side that is often overshadowed & goes unnoticed.
This is just a small snapshot of the ways in which women around the world are living under oppressive conditions, both here in the U.S. and abroad. Yes, this is an ugly part of our history, but we can change it. If we want our nations to succeed, we must make women matter! The fight for women’s rights is just beginning, join us! ‪

THE HISTORY OF TWERKING

If all you know about twerking is Miley Cyrus, watch this spoken word performance and learn about the true history of twerking and how its history has been written over by someone who bears no relation to its origin!

Love watching this

A Tale of Two Mothers In American in a “Post Racial Society”
Left: Catalina Clouser - Got high, drove for 12 miles with her 2 month old baby on the roof of her car before realizing her child was not in the vehicle. The baby fell off and was found in the middle of the highway, still in its car seat and miraculously unharmed. Catalina pled guilty to child abuse and DUI, she avoided jail time and was sentenced to probation.
Right: Shanesha Taylor - A homeless mother, left her two kids (2 years old and 6 months) in the car while she went on a job interview for 45 minutes because she had no one to watch them. Shanesha was arrested and charged with a felony and had her kids removed from her care.
Both of these women live in Arizona

America has a real problem with manufacturing fear for political interests. These tactics led by the NYPD fed into the racial/religious profiling & hate crimes that took place in the aftermath of 9/11. Our response to tragedy says a great deal about who we are as a nation.

So smooth

Lindy Hop

"

To little boys who grow houses on their shoulders, villages along their spines,
To little boys who fight wars on the edge of their lips,
To little boys who love like a draft in an empty room,

Whatever it feels like
Whatever the world feels like between the palms of your hands
I imagine it may
Burn as much as it satisfies.

You were a man the second you were birthed into this world
And you lived your entire life like a refugee of the womb.
Every woman is a reminder of what you were torn from.

I know that there are riots on the edge of your tongue;
behind your teeth;
between your lips.
But.
you is a man, now, boy.
Big and strong and hard and cold.
You is a man.
A man!
A man!

It’s amazing to me how many “ear to the ground” folks I know have spent so ugh time posting about Beyoncé but still aren’t spreading awareness about #kendrickjohnson . This 17 year old #blackboy was killed on school grounds in #Valdosta Georgia and everyone from the school to the cops to the coroner to the funeral home to the media is complicit in the #coverup . #CNN has been the only news outlet that has followed the story and tried to get the family some answers. HELLO PEOPLE this #blackbody is symbolic of how we as #blackpeople are still seen. THEY FILLED HIS BODY WITH NEWSPAPER! Look at his face! They tried to say he only suffocated?! How when he looks like #emmettill ?! If you can post about how wonderful Beyoncé is or anything else THEN SURELY you can share this story and spread awareness. The coverup is only working because people aren’t informed. The more people know, the more pressure can be put on the town. The US Attorney and FBI are involved but it’s not enough. Where are his rallies? His songs? His poems? Why is his image not being shared across the country? Across the world? Where is the #outrage
Oh my God. Bless his soul
Oh my fuck. They removed brains and other organs and filled him with newspaper and school authorities are still trying to convince people it was a freak accident.
WTF
here’s some horrifying facts:
his body, when recovered, had all organs removed so a second autopsy couldn’t determine cause of death
he was found rolled up in a gym mat between benches
camera footage has been tampered with, so there is no recording of the gym or the entrances to tell who entered (but suspiciously were active just long enough to show the victim entering)
school has been late with all requested information
this is not fucking okay
That is just fucking wrong , seriously smh
Pissed off doesn’t began to explain how I’m feeling right now.The number of notes this has compared to a fucking lamborghini on this site adds on to the digust feeling I’m having right now.it’s sickens me…when I first came across this I wanted to ignore it not because I didn’t care but because i felt powerless.But thats the thing were not powerless.please reblog this and spread awareness!

Excellent Piece. HIV and STDs are a very much ignored reality of our society, yet what harms and kills us the most is this very thing. Even more ignored in our cultures that are very much apart of our lives. Harsh reality that needs to stop being ignored. Be Aware. Get Tested. Know Your Status. 

Disclosure

Maya is a young Indian-American woman living with HIV. When her parents say they have a surprise, she gets her friend Freddy to take her to their home. When the surprise becomes too much to bear, Maya is faced with having to reveal her status to her family. The film is a social commentary on HIV/AIDS stigma in the Indian and Desi community.

Featuring music by bhangra artists RDB (Rhythm Dhol Bass) [used with permission]

Written and directed by Amanda Ramsaran, this project originated at Temple University in the 2010-2011 Senior Projects program. The director aims to raise awareness about how stigma affects sufferers of HIV/AIDS across many cultures.
