Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

We need to be looking above all for the greatness and sanity of ordinary women, and how these women have collectively waged resistance. In searching that territory we find something better than individual heroines: the astonishing continuity of women’s imagination of survival, persisting through the great and little deaths of daily life.

Many people know that women make 77 cents to the dollar compared to men. But did you know that African-American women make just 64 cents to the dollar, and Hispanic women make just 56 cents? One group offers an interesting way to fix this. 

Related reading:"Gender wage gap affects the WHOLE family." - Terry O’Neill from the National Organization for Women via Eleanor’s Hope conference call.

I just don’t understand why all of these posts ignore that the racial pay gap also impacts men of color.
I honestly believe that this oversight is on purpose because nobody wants to acknowledge that Black and Latino and Native men are being paid less than white WOMEN. Because that would totally re-frame this pay gap conversation if it was widely acknowledged. And suddenly, there would be NO reason for white women to be front and center.

"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology. You are magic.

Anonymous asked: I dont agree with the quote you posted. There is a difference between loving and supporting your child unconditionally and being prepared to have a disabled child. As a mother of a disabled child i am the first to say i was not prepared but you could never say that I shouldn't have my child. Who are you to say that I should not have a child simply because I was not prepared to have a disabled child that I love.

I took the quote to mean you should be prepared to love a child with x, y, z identities. I do not mean to question you or anyone else as a parent or the love a parent has for their child. I am sorry that you felt hurt by this quote.
