This #internationalwomensday I woke up feeling lucky and proud. Lucky to be one of the girls who had the opportunity to receive an education. #62milliongirls around the world don't get the chance...& proud to call this woman my mother. Not only did she defy gender stereotypes by becoming an engineer in the '80's, she is also one of those empowered women who empower other women. Thank you for showing me the way 👸
To all the girls around the world fighting for an education, you've got friends on the stages of Broadway. Yesterday, the cast of Beautiful The Musical came together to shine a light on girls education and raise awareness for the #62milliongirls around the world who are not in school today. #LetGirlsLearn
#wcw today and everyday. @michelleobama, you slay.. • Thank you for 8 years of serving up class and compassion, your tireless dedication to elevating women and girls, and for making the White House the coolest home in America. • It's been an honor to work alongside you, supporting your incredible campaign to elevate #62MillionGirls to a global conversation. You're my #shero#TheGirlProject
"Each heart embodies the #62MillionGirls working to fight the attitudes and beliefs that serve as a barrier to their education. The belief that girls simply aren't worthy of an education; that women should have no role outside of the home; that their bodies aren't their own, their minds don't really matter, and their voices simply shouldn't be heard."
Today is International Day of the Girl Child. For 62 million girls around the world who can't go to school today, a single act of kindness can change their life. Find a charity that you like, and do your bit. Education WILL change a girl's life - if you need proof, watch the documentary "We Will Rise" on CNN, airing tomorrow 8 EST. A special tip of the hat to the first lady @michelleobama for being the voice of our generation. #letgirlslearn#62milliongirls#dayofthegirl#wewillrise / photo credit: Amanda Lucidon / The White House.
“I wasn’t looking for you when you came to me and told me I couldn’t swim with my dress on. I was never looking for you. You came to me and criticized me because I was making you uncomfortable. But I wasn’t looking for you.” "لم أكن أبحث عنك عندما جئت لتخبرني بأنه غير مسموح لي بالسباحة بثوبي. لم أكن أبدا أبحث عنك. أنت من جئت إلي وانتقدتني لأني جعلتك غير مرتاح. لكنني لم أكن أبحث عنك "
