Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful women in the ancient world. She was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt and she ruled longer than any other woman in Egyptian history. Hatshepsut was married to her sickly half brother, Thutmose II, and the two of them began to co-rule after the death of their father, Thutmose I, in 1492 BC In 1479 BC, Thutmose II died and Hatshepsut continued to rule by herself until her own death in 1458 BC. It is believed by many Egyptologists and historians that Hatshepsut was one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful monarchs. She commissioned many building projects and reestablished trade networks that had been disrupted by the Hyksos invaders of the Second Intermediate Period. Hatshepsut also led a large-scale expedition to the Land of Punt, a wealthy and sophisticated country to the south of Egypt. Hatshepsut is also believed to have led successful military campaigns in Nubia, the Levant, and Syria during her reign.

"Loving your body and being comfortable with it is one of the most rebellious things you can do in this world. It’s a body revolution, and there are people who don’t like it and want to fight against it." -Meghan Tonjes



what most men don’t understand is that i do support men in my feminism. i love them with all my heart and i do my best to dismantle aspects of the patriarchy that harm them, like gender roles and toxic ideals of masculinity that harm them. i want this world to be a safer place for my two brothers…

Angelina Jolie speaks up for Nigerian schoolgirls.


bless you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She has no fucking clue what she’s talking about. This is factually incorrect,  Boko Haram is not the Taliban and isn’t against just girls going to school, Boko Haram also kills school boys with impunity. In fact they kill everyone with impunity. It’s not some targeted campaign to dissuade female enrollment in Western schools. Like honestly people need to stop literally making shit up about this tragedy in Nigeria, and stop glorifying Western neo-imperialism and militarism to boot.

I wrote a piece on the shifting of the narrative in western media of Boko Haram’s insurgency as a targeted campaign specifically against girls. It keeps being shaped that way in articles and news reports. From Anne Hathaway saying that only 5% of Nigerian girls are able to get an education, to Jon Stewart saying that Nigerian girls are brave to desire an education because they are in fear of being dragged into snake-infested jungles by men who want to sell them. This has really spiraled out of control.

My piece should be up on Policy Mic soon.
