Tarana Burke pioneered the conversation that led to today's movement, and has been fighting to unify those who have victimized by sexual violence for 10 years. 👏 #Repost @brictv: Tarana Burke, founder of the #metoo movement, has been named a Person of the Year by Time Magazine! She talked about where we need to go from this historic moment on #BKStories
Amazing news for Salt Lake City! #Repost @derekkitchen: I am very proud to announce tonight that Salt Lake City has officially adopted a resolution supporting hate crimes legislation! Enhanced penalties are necessary for targeted offenses, and law enforcement needs stronger tools to appropriately punish the people who commit attacks on a victim because of ancestry, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, or sexual orientation. I want to thank my council colleagues for supporting me on this, as well as Equality Utah for driving the conversation with the broader community on such important matters of social justice. We still have much work to do, and this is one success to celebrate. #onward #justice #communitypolitics

We're taking inspiration from Shirley Chisholm today! Shirley Chisholm made history by becoming the United States' first African-American Congresswoman in 1968. She served seven terms in the House of Representatives, and was one of the founding members of the Congressional Black Caucus. In 1972, she made history again by becoming the first major-party black candidate to make a bid for the U.S. presidency, running for the Democratic nomination for the presidency. (via @Forbes)

This is such great news for ending gender stereotypes in media! Reposted from @cnnmoney: The UK is cracking down on harmful gender stereotypes in advertisements. Ads that depict men as unable to wash the dishes and women as expert domestic cleaners will be banned in Britain. The country's advertising watchdog said that tougher standards will help reduce inequality.
You are complex and brilliant, and never forget it! ❤
