Alexander Yakovlev's comment, June 2, 2015 9:36 AM
This article seems controversial to me. Gasimova states how she wants to look natural and that there are nothing wrong with women hairs, yet she wears make up, uses deodorant, and does other things that is unnatural in nature. I hate how people choose to do only one part of their statements. It is the same way when women wants an equal rights, yet they don’t want to go work at the cement manufactory as men do. All this arguments are unfair. She doesn’t want to shave that’s her business, but I think that every country has their own standards for shaving. As it mentioned, she is Turkish, so in Turkey it’s probably fine for women not to shave, but she probably forgot that she is not in turkey and there are different standards in different countries. IF you don’t like it, go back to Turkey nothing holds you there.

Madame C.J. Walker History

Madame C.J. Walker History | Herstory | Scoop.it
Madame C.J. Walker was America’s first self-made female millionaire. She amassed her fortune through hard work, innovative ideas, and a fierce dedication to her craft and her people. Contrary to most historical accounts, Madame C.J. Walker did not invent the pressing comb.

In 1910 Madame C.J. Walker moved her ever expanding “Special Correspondence Course” business, founded on her System of Beauty Culture, to

I asked this man who had shared my bed for three nights running why we had not made love. "Your body is too wrinkly," he said without a pause. "I have spoiled myself over the years with young woman. I just can't get excited with you. I love your energy and your laughter. I like your head and your heart. But, I just can't deal with your body."

Discrimination, Doxxing, and That 'Louie' Episode: A Q&A With the Filmmakers Behind 'Fattitude'

Discrimination, Doxxing, and That 'Louie' Episode: A Q&A With the Filmmakers Behind 'Fattitude' | Herstory | Scoop.it
RH Reality Check recently spoke to Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman, who are crowdsourcing funds for Fattitude, their documentary about fat prejudice. The filmmakers discuss the core principles of Fattitude, the harassment they've experienced while making the film, and much more.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Quote: We entered the sphere of making this film with the belief that diversity and diverse voices were extensively important, and one of the current flaws with the trailer—which will not be true of this film—is that it is all women’s voices. It is our goal, by the time we complete this film, that it is a film about fat men and fat women of every race, creed, sex, color, all of the above, because we believe only in that space can you truly have a conversation about what’s being experienced.
