I'd like to just take a moment to appreciate the absolute awesomeness of the Spartan women. In a world and time completely dominated by men, these women were strong and rightful. Especially Queen Gorgo, daughter of King Cleomenes I, wife of King Leonidas I and mother of King Pleistarchus. As a young girl she advised her father to resist a bribe and under the war between Persia and Greece she helped decode a warning that the Persians were about to invade Greece. When asked by an Attican woman…Continue
Okay, so I’ve seen this video posted a few times, mostly by women with the same comments, that it is a “must see” and “every woman should see this”. And while I’m sure that the intended statement is worth examination, my problem with it is this: beauty is still seen as a necessity for women.
This particular “study” would postulate that women are their own worst critics, and that being less…Continue

We decided not to do a vlog on the subject since many lovely ladies have already covered the subject nicely. Check out their video responses below:

No, that is not a spelling error. That is the title of a fantastic film showcasing the way women are portrayed in the media. Sadly, females are little more than sexual objects. Even women in power (eg. Hillary Clinton) have been objectified by their outward appearance and not the way they have changed society. This film certainly changed my perspective on media outlets, such as tabloids and television. It has been known for a while that women have been treated as less than humans in the…Continue
I watched two movies this past week: Bridesmaids, which is still out at the cheap theater, and Columbiana, which I believe just started showing. These movies don't have much in common; one's a raunchy send up of marriage and female life in general, and the other's a filmy froth of action movie cliches. I came out of Columbiana today thinking about what it means, in life and in film, to be a strong woman.
Hollywood seems to have this idea that a…Continue

So. This is going to be interesting (if only to me).
Two days ago, my dad and I had a Lord of the Rings marathon, and I had an idea. It was during the ride to Helm's Deep, when Gimli talks about Dwarf women that this started to form, but I only brought it up during RotK. Are there female Orcs and Uruk-Hai?
This sounds like an unimaginably strange thing to think when you're about to watch a Warg battle, but after watching the movies at least a dozen times, you pay less…Continue
Based on, possibly, my favorite thing that John has ever said.

as writers in the eighteenth century and such...
Check that out and more in my latest vlog:
I've been reading a lot of literature with a lot of villainous male leads. It's doing something to me. Man, I love college!
Also, bubble gum face, ranting, and ruffles!

Hello people. If any of you bothered to read my last blog then you know that, I haven’t blogged in a while. The cause is that until today nothing insignificant has occurred to me. However, that changes today (yesterday since i couldnt post this). While in English class today (yesterday), my teacher showed us a recent audio log about a young 9-year-old divorced wife named Nujood Ali. This story really peeved me and after it was through my teacher wanted us to write a response about it. Here…Continue
