Stand #withMalala for Girl’s Education

 

I have a very special announcement to share with you, feminist felines:

 

Tonight at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT the National Geographic Channel is playing a COMMERCIAL-FREE premiere of He Named Me Malala!

 

You may know Malala Yousafzai as the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize. But do you know her full story?

 

In 2013 Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban for daring to stand up for girls’ education. Now, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient TruthIt Might Get Loud) is telling Malala’s story about her incredible journey and her work to ensure every girl has access to 12 years of free, quality, safe education.

 

Check out the trailer below:

 

I am super pumped to be hosting a watch party tonight with my kitties in the comfort of my own home. I hope that you all will join me too!

It is permeated with the drive to make the most of opportunities and situations, and to empower yourself to take an active role in your destiny. It is what these short stories and poems all share, even if they are all so very different. At the core of this book is the inherent passion to live a better, happier, and more magical life.

 

The first lines of Julie Zantopoulos‘ debut book, Shoot Down the Wendy Bird: A Collection of Short Stories & Poetry ask what is arguably the most important question for people of the Millennial generation: “What’s your favorite Disney character?” If you don’t have an immediate answer … Read more
