Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

REAL LIFE DISNEY PRINCE TOM HIDDLESTON EXHIBIT
Always reblog the Real Life Disney Prince. Pay attention boys, this is how it’s done.
I’ve always liked Tom Hiddleston but this just made me fall in love with him
I’m not gonna lie, my eyes got a little blurry.
His parents should write a book about parenting, cuz I wanna know whether they hired a sorcerer to make sure their child comes out right.
If this is back to my dash, I have to reblog it again.
My cute little front ensemble plays the Gravity Falls theme. :’) (ignore the weird blur in the beginning)
that was awesome
this delights me
