Reblogging again cause it’s fantastic.
I had this friend once. She called me spaceman.
Three covers I photographed for Catapult.org's International Women's Day viral campaign
I’m enormously proud of the work Catapult and I did together, and hope this campaign will help draw attention to important issues women are facing today, such as forced marriage, child slavery, and forced prostitution.
Even in 2014, the rights of women and girls are severely threatened by sex trafficking, slavery, child marriage and other violations around the world. International Women’s Day, observed annually on March 8, continues to spread awareness and garner support — and change — for women across the globe.
Catapult, a crowdfunding site dedicated specifically to the advancement of women and girls, has released a startling new visual campaign in an attempt to make this year’s IWD “more than just a cover story.” The Cover Stories campaign features three mock magazine covers that highlight terrifyingly real human rights issues to push the conversation forward.
The magazines display the grisly names Child Bride, Good Slavekeeping and Thirteen — wordplays on the popular magazines Brides, Good Housekeeping and Seventeen, respectively.
Headlines such as "The Wedding You’ll Never Forget But Wish You Could" and "Who Needs a Childhood Anyway?" float next to the young models. The cover of Good Slavekeeping pretends to cater to the human rights violators themselves, adding another dark layer to the already serious campaign.

you turn them on their left side, one to prevent aspiration from vomitus or any other substance and also for cardiac reasons.
my question is if men are unable to control themselves in the presence of women why the hell are they allowed to control entire nations
I’m not really a Dr. Who fan but I thought this was cute.
A few weeks ago I attended a convention in my Sasha cosplay, and it was totally worth dealing with the 100 degree weather.
I just wanted to share this with you, and thank you for creating these characters, because all of them have impacted my life in some way, Sasha especially.
So thank you so much!
Ok Sasha was on screen for maaaaaybe 10 minutes total and I’m not sure if she actually had any lines (I think she might have shouted something in Russian as they were being attacked) and this character impacted OP’s life?? I mean….good for you, I guess.
Yes, she did, because she didn’t have to speak for her to have an impact. The first time we see her you can tell she’s a badass. She’s beautiful, she wears full makeup into battle, and you can tell nobody fucks with her. She’s the dominating one in her marriage to a 7ft tall, strong ass Russian man, and you can see this because a) cafeteria scene;
She’s calling him over. When he sits down, she pulls him to her and he just lets her.
b) When that whole shit fest with Gipsy’s test run goes down;
Aleksis is clearly uncomfortable about standing on that catwalk, BUT HE DOESN’T MAKE ANY MOVE TO LEAVE UNTIL SASHA STARTS MOVING. Sasha stares that fucking plasma gun down and she is pissed that she even has to move, because she isn’t scared of it.
c) WHEN WE FIRST MEET THEM, GUESS WHO’S WALKING IN FRONT;
And d) She is Pilot 1 of Cherno;
Aleksis is Pilot 2. Sasha is the one that calls out the orders, she talks to LOCCENT the most, she tells Aleksis what to do in Cherno, and he LISTENS TO HER.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO SEE A BIG TALL MAN LISTEN TO HIS WIFE LIKE THIS? IT’S AMAZING. BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENS. THERE’S A STRONG MAN ON SCREEN? HE’S THE LEADER, CLEARLY. NOT IN PACIFIC RIM. BOTH MAKO AND SASHA KICKED THAT STEREOTYPE IN THE FUCKING FACE, THEY KICKED ASS, AND LOOKED GOOD DOING IT.
And when Cherno does go down, Sasha isn’t screaming in fear of death, she’s screaming because she can’t take the kaiju down with her. And that’s badass as hell.
(Ps, she has 10 lines. And she’s cussing in Russian when they’re fighting.)
The cosplay was great enough but the commentary made this an instant reblog.
