 We can't help but feel inspired when we watch women own the stage during their TED and TEDx talks. They may be brief, but they give us a taste of all the incredible ways ladies are shaping our world—whether they are authors, artists, activists, or teens just trying to figure it all out, when these speakers tell their stories and share their passions they stir something inside of us.  In that spirit, here is a compilation of nine empowering talks that reminded us what feminism is all about. We hope you enjoy them all as much as we did. Read More
“My Choice” is a video created as a part of Vogue India’s social awareness campaign, #VogueEmpower, meant to illustrate the choices all women should have over their own lives. The piece features 99 different Indian women of various ages, backgrounds, and professions—but the powerful message will resonate with women across the world. My Choice monologue transcript “My body, my mind, my choice. To wear the clothes I like even as my spirit roams naked. My choice. To be a size 0 or a size 15 they don’t have a size for my spirit, and never will. Read More
Women need to be featured more prominently on certain things: money, monuments, and of course, ice cream. If manufacturers can use women's bodies to sell cars, beer, and other various dude-bro products, then why can't something that is stereotypically marketed to women empower us as well? We want girl power ice cream, and since Ben & Jerry's is already known for making political stances, why not insert some witty feminism into the flavor arsenal?  All of this art is the property of the uber talented Amanda McCall. Check out all her amazing varieties of Ben & Jerry's classics. Read More
Being pregnant doesn’t spare women from the constant criticism about their bodies. In some cases, people feel the need to critique them even more, as newscaster Kristi Gordon has noticed. This isn’t Gordon’s first time dealing with rude comments. Her experience from her first pregnancy was so bad that after announcing her current one, she asked people to “be nice” to her. Read More
The Piplantri village in Rajasthan, India is becoming known for its eco-feminism. Former village leader Shyam Sundar Paliwal launched the practice of honoring newborn female babies by planting 111 trees every time a girl is born. The village now abounds with neem, sheesham, mango, amla and other tree varieties. The project was named after Paliwal’s daughter, Kiram Nidhi Yojana, after she passed away at a young age.  The community is taking action in other ways in order to ensure their daughters have the best life possible.

During a time when it’s almost impossible not to feel insanely frustrated about the state of women’s reproductive rights, we can take solace in incredible activist/artists like Michele Pred. Pred’s work stands out at first glance because it's eye-catching (and super badass), but her pieces are powerful beyond their awesome aesthetic: Their messages are—unfortunately—very relevant to issues women in the U.S. face daily. And while her presentation is refreshingly accessible, it’s also impressively layered. Read More

Self-taught, Kahlo created at least 140 paintings, as well as dozens of drawings and studies.

  Can we ever have too many versions of Little Women? We say no, and luckily, so does Sony Pictures. There are tons of reasons we're pumped about an updated version of Louisa May Alcott’s classic, the main one being the obvious fact that we are long time Little Women lovers. Alcott’s book was fiercely pro-women and inspiringly ahead of its time, and for that alone we’ll always be thrilled to see its story honored.   But there are plenty of other factors that are making us believe this adaptation of Little Women will be especially incredible:  1.
