Photographer Documents the Struggle to Provide Girls with an Education in Kibera

Kibera is a division of Nairobi, Kenya, and as a rule, girls there don’t have much of a shot at an education. Kenya is still very patriarchal, and if a family has both boys and girls, it’s the boys who will be granted the opportunity to attend secondary school.
The
Kibera Girls Soccer Academy
(KGSA) is trying to fix that by providing girls in the area with a free secondary education…

What’s an inversion? It’s when a large corporation claims it’s based abroad to avoid paying taxes.
You don’t get to pick your tax rate. Neither should corporations. Let’s make sure we all play by the same rules.

Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”

So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

just icky.
