If we’re wondering why so many black women grow up to feel shitty about the way their hair grows out of their head, this is it. It starts as soon as you have a few wisps of hair to pull into a bow.
Soup for thought
Feminism is not a 4 letter-word

Viktoria Modesta had difficulties in birth that left her leg and hip dislocated. After 15 surgeries, she moved to London and fought to have her leg amputated. She then pursued pop stardom.
Inspired by the disabled, not the singer. If she wants to compete with Lady Gaga, good for her. It's all about her legs, looks, nothing about her music
Isis has executed at least 150 women for refusing to marry militants in Iraq, Turkish media has reported.
As a group, Isis has been responsible for mass executions before
I watched on television and Twitter, along with the rest of the world, as the Sydney siege unfolded yesterday. A lone gunman took patrons and staff hostage at the Lindt café, unfurled an imitation of an Isis flag, made demands for the proper flag to be delivered to him, terrorised the city and made the whole world witness his Four Lions-esque attempt to go out with a bang, not a whimper.
Is humanity a priority on everybody's agenda?
If not, I'm afraid #illridewithyou will remain simply a hashtag
"Power is the ability not to have to please," according to Elizabeth Janeway
Feminists, female and male, are usually the most astute, clever, dynamic and lively people in the room. Why would you want to be anything else?
Rights campaigners claim mandatory evidence requirements block 40% of women affected by violence from getting legal aid
Legal aid is a lifeline for victims of abuse, enabling them to escape from abusive relationships, protect their children, and manage their financial situations. Access to justice is vital in these cases – the statistics are stark; two women are killed each week by a current or former partner and 500 recent victims of domestic violence commit suicide every year.
I have read my share of Thought Catalog in the past few months, and it seems like men have really tiptoed around the subject of holding women to some kind of a standard. Well, I’m going to ignore t...
I've realized that the thing that makes me most attracted to a woman is if she realizes that she is an individual that deserves respect. And it absolutely infuriates me to see lists like this. The thought of men actually thinking of women like this keeps me up at night.
For humiliations, and for hundreds of hours of work and practices, Alyssa and her fellow cheerleaders on the Buffalo Jills received not a penny of wages..
The Jills were required to attend a golf tournament for sponsors...Afterward, the men placed bids on which women would ride around in their golf carts...The carts had no extra seats. Women... were invited to sit in the men’s laps.
Now the league claims credit for its bravery in confronting the scourge of wrecked brains.
A new generation of Indian women won't stay silent, owing largely to the brave men and women who have spoken up about women's rights and safety in the country.
As The Huffington Post launches in India, we wanted to recognize some of the amazing p...
Misogyny belongs to the famous Indian classification: “chalta hai”. This expression, loosely translated as “it will do”, means brushing off things such as rules – and even matters of conscience – because people think they don’t matter
Fairlife, Coca-Cola's new milk beverage, has ditched its ad campaign following allegations of sexism
What a new low for Coca Cola?
In one of them the picture looks like milk is exploding out of the lady's bottom. What about chocolate milk???? yukkkkkkkk.
The human toll of rape in America is astonishingly, overwhelmingly large.
A rape every 17 seconds....overblown?
Use of "virginity tests" for Indonesia police recruits is a troubling sign for women's rights, says Phelim Kine.
Requiring a female to undergo a virginity test is widely seen as harmful, especially when it is performed on behalf of a government. The practice is seen as sexist, perpetuating the notion that sexual intercourse outside of marriage is acceptable for men, but not for rwomen, and suggesting that women's sexual activity should be subject to public knowledge and criticism, while men's should not.

For decades, the way women appeared in advertisements was dictated by men. But now female photographers and creatives are changing the rules -
Today, we seem so at peace as we continue to objectify women (and men to a lesser degree) on a daily basis. I'm terrified this culture will continue for my children, and one day they'll dishonor the beautiful people around them, just because they're not dancing naked in front of them.
Russian child supermodel Kristina Pimenova's mother hit out at critics in an exclusive interview with MailOnline: 'You must think like a paedophile to see something sexual in these pictures.'
Unabashed self-promotion and careless disregard as to the welfare of their child. Who says this is the "most beautiful child in the world"? Thousands of mothers would disagree.
The long-term effects of underage sex trafficking are disastrous. Criminal charges may remain on their records permanently, making it hard to get public benefits.
I've been trying to get people to delete Snapchat for a long time now. Snapchat's time as a fun way for users to swap pictures has come and gone. I briefly had an account last year but it did not t...

Building emotionally intelligent teams and organizations will be imperative in order to engage people and ensure that we both do the right thing, and do it in the right way. If people are not engaged at work, how are we then going to build the necess...

Too many times we lose sight of the power of visuals and its ability to attract the eye.Remember: wherever the eyes go, minds will follow. So use color to catch the eyes of your customers.
Australian journalist and news presenter Tracey Spicer is on a mission to tear down the long-held beauty ideals of women.
Highly controversial: natural beauty vs modern days grooming standards.

The famously prickly actor-director talks about his feminist western The Homesman, ‘malevolent’ Putin and his Savile Row tailor
Tommy Lee Jones is well known for noisy comments about a lot of issues. I suggest we deal with him as an actor, not a politician. Objectification is worth mentioning.

Let’s face it, eve-teasing and other forms of harassment are no longer restricted to real life and have followed women onto their online social space. At some point of our social networking life, we’ve all received a “lets be fraands” request and bad grammar aside, these online creeps are swarming all over the place, looking for easy bait. As women, we’re ever so wary of them in real life, so why not be the same online?
Cyberbullies and online dating creeps come on top.
