When Champagne Joy walked into a room, you knew it. She had a way of materializing like a force of nature β€” like a storm β€” rather than a regular human being. It wasn't just her badass personal style, complete with neon eyebrows and lipstick, skull motifs, and quirky Japanese designers: There was an inevitability about anything she said; you had no choice but to be swept away by her, to nod your head yes. She could have used this special gift of hers to accomplish pretty much anything, but she chose to devote it to tirelessly advocating for the more than 100 women and men who die every day of metastatic breast cancer β€” a disease that she died from yesterday. Refinery29 is honored to have had the chance to partner with Champagne and #Cancerland to spread this important message and share the stories of the people who face Stage IV breast cancer every day β€” and we're committed to continuing her mission.

"My favorite thing about the Lower Eastside Girls Club is the community. I like feeling welcomed and accepted for who I am. I never feel judged for being a young woman of color. In this community, I am told that I can make it, that I can be something. It is a way young women of color are taught to love themselves. In 10 years, I hope that I am successful and happy. I see myself traveling the world and giving back. Hopefully inspiring young girls to conquer the world." β€” Aicha, age 15

There were 501 cases of missing teens, many of them Black or Latinx, in the D.C. area over the last three months. 22 of those cases remained unsolved as of March 22nd.
Why is so little national attention devoted to their cases? The disconnect between how the media reports about violent crimes against white women versus women of color is incredibly problematic, particularly when you consider that about 40% of all the missing people in the U.S. are people of color.

Malala Yousafzai is the youngest person ever to receive a Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17. She is an activist for education specifically women in her native country, Pakistan, where the Taliban had banned girls from attending school. She fights for the global right to education around the world. #Malala is an inspiration for those who are displaced, faced with adversity, and denied the human right to a good education regardless of gender. #MuslimWomensDay
