A 14-year-old, Julia Bluhm, has defeated Seventeen Magazine, the most widely distributed teen girls' magazine in the U.S.--at least for now. Because of Julia's online petition asking Seventeen to run unaltered photos to show its readers what real beauty and real girls look like, which was signed by 80,000 people, the editors of Seventeen caved. The magazine's Editor in Chief announced that the magazine vows not to use Photoshop to alter the face shape and body sizes of its teen models

In 1931 Sue Eakin, a white girl in Louisiana, saw a dusty, old book called "Twelve Years a Slave." She found a copy for herself a bit later - and spent 70 years rescuing it from obscurity and doggedly proving it was factual. "Her passion was history, getting the history out.” In 1968 she got it back into print. In 2007, at 88, she published an edition with maps and pictures. She wrote in the acknowledgments, “Now Solomon and I can rest.” Two years later, she died. A great story at the click.

And became an extremely hard working woman, teaching and dressmaking, sending her son George to Berkley when he was 14. He became a doctor. And then, she did too. Cuz thats how Badass Bethenia rolled it. With a real degre...
