A Little Something Happy

"I am from Britain and think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decision-making of my country. I think it is right that socially I am afforded the same respect as men. But sadly I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to receive these rights."

A Smart Girls must-watch.

“If all cosmos were the same distance apart, gravity would pull them all in the same direction. They’d remain perfectly aligned, and precisely nothing would happen. Irregularity, imperfection, and lack of order in hydrogen compacts, atoms of gas gravitating away from each other, and compressed temperatures is what created our universe. Perfection in our galaxy simply does not exist. Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.” —Stephen Hawking Utilize this as an analogy next time attempt to undermine your self-worth caused by fallacious and subjective standards one must meet in order to attain aesthetic appeal. Symmetric cannot be created if its source is asymmetric.

After 260 years, the stodgiest golf club in the world will finally welcome women

On the same day the United Kingdom’s fate was decided, another landmark vote was cast in Scotland. This one decided whether the Royal and Ancient Golf Club — long regarded as the symbolic home of golf — would finally welcome female members. 

By an overwhelming 85% majority, members voted to throw out the sexist and antiquated ban on women in favor of a mixed club. It only took 260 years for the men-only club to stop being discriminatory.
