Norway Child Experiment on Gender Pay Gap

A Norwegian financial company did an experiment to show how kids react to the gender pay gap.

A simple example that proves that we are equal and that should reflect in remuneration and reward too.

Hidden Figures x Womandla Campaign

.I have been waiting for this movie to come out since I heard about its power and influence. It will be on the big screen as of end February 2017.

Brief Synopsis:

“The film shares life of mathematician Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), budding engineer Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) and computer supervisor Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) — all three brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.”

Viola Davis on Meryl Streep

I have never seen or heard of a woman praising another so genuinely and truthfully. Wow, that was beautiful and so real. More of this in 2017!

Happy New Year everybody. This video sets the tone of how our year  should start and influence us on complimenting and honoring women more!

Also, I just love Viola. She’s melanin, mastery and matriarchal.

Cheers to a fresh start!

Young Lady- @warsan_shire

“How far have you walked for men

who’ve never held your feet in their laps?

How often have you bartered with bone,

only to sell yourself short?

Why do do you find the unavailable so alluring?

Where did it begin? What went wrong?

And who made you feel so worthless?

If they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?

All this time you were begging for love silently, thinking

they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you.

You must have known they could taste the desperate on your skin.

And what about others that would do anything for you,

why did you make them love you

until they couldn’t stand it?

How are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?

Where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?

Where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?”

Q.U.E.E.N by Janelle Monae feat Erykah Badu

The best anthem for every woman around the world. Defying every label and category, pushing all limits and achieving what we can. Are you a queen? I sure am. If you don’t like the genre of music at least Google the lyrics
