I don't think at the time I truly understood the importance of what was happening that day in Seneca Falls, NY. I was in 1840s dress, My Mom was portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton, And there was a declaration to be signed. It was Convention Days 2014. I met Nadia Shahram who was leading a movement for Muslim women. After my Mom (as Elizabeth Cady Stanton) read the Declaration of Sentiments, Nadia and the other leaders of her group read the Declaration of Equalities. It was pow...

How many times have women been stepped over? How many times have YOU been stepped over because you are a girl? How many times have you been seen as a sexual object? How many times have you LET others step over you because you are a girl? As the years come and go, and the world " evolves " there has been an alarming issue remaining, and it has not ceded -to be honest- it has grown. That issue is the lack of respect, and following of women's and girls rights. We see that women...

When I was teaching Grade 9 students on my practicum, I would start off the day with an inspirational video. This one in particular, "Day of the Girl" by the amazing YouTube channel, "Shots of Awe" (motivational speaker, Jason Silva) spoke to me. Growing up in a developed country, Canada - I still had challenges towards getting an education. I want to share this with young girls and women who may be going through these challenges. Empowerment and inspiration are important, they dri...

I would first like to dedicate my condolences to all the girls in Nigeria who went missing. I don't even know where to start. I feel like what Boko Haram has done is very foolish. Who would have thought of taking over 200 girls from their homes and then selling them? Are they mad? I mean I am 11 and if I went missing my parents would be overcome in sorrow. The more I think about the issue, I feel like the military in Nigeria and the President Goodluck Jonathan should be doin...

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Said What He Thinks About Race Now That He's Made It, And Almost Nobody Noticed.

This is a video from the site UPWORTHY. It was originally posted on that site by Rajiv Narayan. To set the scene, the (poorly posed) question is referring to comments made by former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who suggested that genetic differences could explain why there are fewer girls in science. Yup, he really was Treasury secretary and president of Harvard. Neil deGrasse Tyson's answer is, um, out of this world. There, I said it....

This is such a perfect week for me, because I got a chance to join to the very 1st UNICEF Activate; Innovating for Children – Innovating for Equity by UNICEF Indonesia to celebrate the 25th Convention on the Rights of the Child. It was held on April 23rd, 2014 at Erasmus Huis, Jakarta, Indonesia. As a youngster, I feel really happy because there were many other youth that came to that place with the same purpose as me. We wanted to be inspired, to be involved and to be motivated...
