The Camp Gyno - An accurate, realistic and funny commercial about young girls getting their period.
"'I GOT MY PERIOD.' And with those words, Hello Flo just won Ad of the Year (so far). If you’re an N. American woman, I don’t have to tell you about the traditional hush-hush nature of this country’s menstruation advertising, with all the never say the p-word, “blue liquid” commercials through the years. Well, this sassy little girl just changed that flo. Brilliant!" AND IT'S SO FUNNY.
The Camp Gyno- A great ad campaign from HelloFlo: no-- the BEST ad campaign ever for "that time of month" from HelloFlo.
The camp gyno and body positivity - too funny
This is so funny!!!!!! The Camp Gyno - Funniest Tampon ad EVER.
The tampon commercial every girl needs to see. SO FUNNY! Totes just made my night!!
Sen. Warren on Republicans' Shutdown Threats #media

Sen. Warren on Government shut down.
Sen. Warren on Republicans' Shutdown Threats. This is one amazing woman. Backwards looking ideologues, indeed.
A Senator Bluntly Says What We're All Thinking About The Awful And Obnoxious Government Shutdown: Senator Warren decided to get to the brass tacks about what this government shutdown is actually going to do to the country. She doesn't mince words.
"… the republicans are willing to shutter the government and potentially tank the economy over whether women can get access to birth control in the year 2013, not the year 1913, the year 2013. I have a daughter and I have grand daughters and I will never vote to let a group of backward looking idealogues cut women's access to birth control. We have lived in that world and we are not going back. Not ever." Elizabeth Warren
The Real Govt Shutdown: Sometimes when you listen to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA) talk politics, you have to remind yourself that you are listening to a real person & not a too-good-to be true fictitious character created by Aaron Sorkin. Warren has an amazing gift for clarifying complicated issues. Her incredible command of facts make her an intimidating adversary for those who don’t share her point of view.

18 Badass Women You Probably Didn't Hear About In 2014
28 most iconic feminist moments of 2013. Mallika Sherawat gets upset with a journalist.
Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, set to make her tv debut with 'The Bachelorette India', responds passionately to a journalist asking about her controversial statement that Indian society is regressive for women.
Indian actress Mallika Sherawat stands up to bollywood reporter who chides her for claiming that India is a regressive state for women. (INTERVIEW)
Pointing out that Sen. Donna Campbell is an ophthalmologist is not disrespectful when she asserts in a state hearing that she should be THE expert on reproductive health. What was disrespectful was the parade of anti-choice zealots and misogynists who got up for 13 hours and called women murderers, killers, promiscuous, thoughtless, and selfish. Not a peep from committee chair Nelson on those.

She had it all right, it's a sham what they're doing! Texas Woman Gets Removed Mid-Testimony Against Texas Legislature: I cannot believe that police forcibly remove a woman from testifying in a country that prides itself on being the model for democracy because the senators did not like what she was saying! This is beyond scandalous.

Photographer Jaime Moore Amelia Earhart
When Austin-based photographer Jaime Moore was deciding how to snap photos of her daughter Emma to remember her 5th birthday, she combed the Internet for visual inspiration — and, naturally, came across a ton of young girls dressed up like Disney princess on their birthdays. Jaime wrote on her blog, via F Stop Lounge: "It started me thinking about all the REAL women for my daughter to know about and look up to, REAL women who without ever meeting Emma have changed her life for the better."

Why Pantene's New Ad Has Millions Talking - Empowering Phillipines Ad Campaign Takes On Labels Against Women
This is a commercial aired in the Philippines for Pantene. In the clip, it shows women and men side by side with adjectives describing them. The men are called things like "dedicated" and "smooth" while the women are called "selfish" and "show-off". It is a striking example of the double standards our society has. What is interesting about this is that this video is still an advertisement for a product- they are still trying to sell the viewer something.

7-Year-Old Girl's Awesome Letter to LEGO: Dear Lego company: My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love Legos but I don’t like that there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls. Today I went to a store and saw Legos in two sections — the girls' pink and the boys' blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks (...).
