"I don't measure America by its achievement but by its potential." โ€”#ShirleyChisolm
Honoring the women who advocated for change and fought for the rights of everyone, thanks for always empowering us.

#ShirleyChisholm began her career as an educator where she was an authority on issues regarding early education and child welfare. This formed the basis of her political career as she became the first African American congresswoman. She was also the first Black major-party candidate to run for the President of the United States, and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. She was a trailblazer for women who wanted to enter the political sphere and a reminder to speak out and stand up as an advocate for what we believe in. #AcknowledgeIsPower

When you've highlighted your whole face but you can't stop there, introducing "eye-strobing". ๐Ÿ‘Œ #R29ShortCuts

The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander portrays a man's dormant feelings of femininity and female self after standing in to model as a lady for her wife. As the couple comes to terms with Einar's (Eddie Redmayne) true identity, they decide to undergo the world's first attempt at male-to-female sex reassignment surgery.

"Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations." โ€” #MaeJemison
