Monday Menagerie #26

In my #HopeForOurDaughters issue I bring you various stories of daughters across the globe that are spreading the feeling of hope,  fulfilling their dreams and passions, taking matters into their own hands and showing us how the next generation (and some that have come before) is making this world a better place for all of us.  First, however, I want to share the trailer of the film every woman (and man!) should see and background on some of the women we owe our lives to (literally)! Beautiful.  Breathtaking.  Disturbing.  Necessary. Mothers, if they are old enough, take your daughters to go and see this film.  It’s not a “feel good” film but it is inspiring and reminds us that we can accomplish ANYTHING if we believe in it enough and that ANYTHING is possible, especially if you have your girlfriends to count on and a huge amount of courage.

Monday Menagerie #10

FLOTUS pounds it out, Ronda Rousey knocks it out, Amy Schumer speaks it out, Broad City dances it out, and grown women in Hollywood ROCK IT OUT.  Also.. babies, no-schooling, and a Pink Rabbits cover to dream about. FLOTUS “let’s move” You’ve probably heard about Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, but have you seen this video?  I don’t know if it’s appropriate to describe our First Lady as “kick-ass”, but she SO is. “Republican or Democrat.. How awesome is it that she just wants to make the nation healthier?! #somuchyes”  –Kristin (shared by Kristin Tona) Ronda Rousey Is Unstoppable I received not one but two emails from my cousin (and Project:Women contributor) Kristin Tona about Ronda Rousey, a young woman who is shaking up–or more accurately, knocking out– the UFC world of fighting.  I will let Kristin fill you in, she does it with such gusto!! “I love that it talks in the beginning about how the President of the UFC joked that women will never be in the UFC.  But now here he is.. …
