Ashley Judd, writing on the site, fights back at those in the media who speculated on her “puffy” appearance, calling the frenzy a misogynistic assault on all women.Why even stoop to their level?
Ashley:

I choose to address it because the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle. The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about.

And she’s only getting started! Yea girl. Read Ashley Judd Slaps Media on The Daily Beast.

DANG ASHLEY JUDD KILL IT

This is fucking amazing. I love you (even more) Ashley Judd.

YA BURNT, MEDIA.

Educator Charlotte Hawkins Brown on her wedding day in 1912.  Founder of the historic Palmer Memorial Institute in North Carolina, Ms. Brown was also one of the invaluable suffragists who worked for black women to have the same equal rights black men and white women were fighting for in the early 20th century.  
She was also the great aunt of singer Natalie Cole. In fact, she raised Natalie’s mother Maria and her sisters (her brother’s children) when their mother died in childbirth. Ms. Brown died in 1961.

“I would say [I’m a feminist], definitely. I’m actually reading a book right now called Female Chauvinist Pigs [by Ariel Levy]. In the book she talks about how we’re thinking we are liberated but really we’re just buying into the male mainstream idea of how we should be - the socialisation of it all.”
