Expose: Shedding Light on Collective Beauty by Laura K Photography
Found these pictures through The Militant Baker’s website. Through each picture you can see women as they actually are and every single one of them is beautiful.
i love this omg
Found this online. Great for those who are drafting hoods.
Hoods are one of those finicky things to draft if you never drafted hoods before.
Example Cosplay: Attack on titan capes
I find this more revolutionary than I probably should, given the number of hoods I’ve sewn over the years. But it’s like world is a whole lot clearer now!
YES YES YES
The shape of hoods are the bane of my sewing existence, thank youuuu~!
- The compliment every white guy in a movie has given his movie girlfriend: Wow.. you.. you look great.
After all… I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.#ThatsWhatSheSaid // cc: marcushessenberg (Notting Hill, UK)
I’m not sure if it’s ok to submit an illustration, I think I saw an illustration posting on your blog once. I might have been confused. Sorry for bugging you in that case.
Thank you for taking your time!
Also… my first TV crush. Probably first crush ever. I was lucky to meet her in person at conventions.
I just want to say that this is why minority representation in the media matters. Mae Jemison was inspired to become an astronaut after watching Nichelle Nichols as Uhura on Star Trek.
Media is NEVER “just” media.
She also appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that LeVar Burton directed, and Nichelle Nichols visited her on set. :)
:O awesome! How did I never know this?
Although these stunning images might look like the work of Photoshop magic, photographer Robert Bösch (or Robert Boesch) captured these campaign photos for the Swiss mountaineering brand Mammut by carefully coordinating an entire team of mountaineers on the snowy Alps.
This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success.
The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?”
In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.
This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”

Cops in Ferguson arrest protesters then use their release as bargaining chip with protesters outside, agreeing to let arrestees go if protesters leave by certain time (but they don’t make good on their promises). Is this common police practice in a scenario like this? I don’t know. Seems bizarre to me. If you’re arresting people for legit reasons, how is their release so negotiable for you?
