He Named Me Malala

#HeNamedMeMalala

 


Malala Yousafzai has accomplished more for women’s rights in a mere decade than I could hope to contribute in 3 lifetimes. She is only human, but the depth of her humanity proves immeasurable by any metrics known to me.

#AskHerMore

Did you watch the Emmys last night?

As usual, the red carpet was full of impossibly gorgeous celebrities all spiffed up in their designer tuxedo suits and sweeping gowns. And once again the journalists spent most of the time asking actresses vapid questions about their gowns and manicures and asking actors about their actual Emmy nominations, professional thoughts, and personal opinions. The media is so focused on this superficial nonsense, in fact, that E! rolled out a “clutch cam” to accompany the “mani cam” that they debuted during the Oscars to showcase celebrity manicures. The clutch cam featured a rhinestone-bedazzled rotating platform for the actress to place her clutch as if she were peddling goods on QVC.
