24 March Colombia University is hosting a Human Rights Career Panel! The panel brings leaders across great organizations like Center for Reproductive Rights and Open Society Foundations. 

24 March What does "feminist photography" look like in practice? In Visual Rebellions: Reframing and Resisting Power Through Feminist Photography four remarkable community-based artists and activists will share their perspective, and how they create work that showcases the diversity and richness of perspectives of women, gender nonconforming people, and communities of color.

25 March How can we effectively counter the rising resistance to gender equality? Government and civil society leaders from around the world will share lessons learned and best practices from how they have mobilized collective power that can be scaled to better serve women worldwide. Humans we're excited to listen to on this panel include (but certainly not limited to!) Chinese feminist activist Liang Xiaowen and Ambassador Melanne Verveer, the executive director of Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security. 
The most interesting marrying of sounds we heard this week is an anime song 君の名は covered by a Spanish guitarist

Just your everyday, ordinary, average, casual car ride with a 3-year-old girl who speaks 12 languages and can sing Selena's 'Como la Flor' with the passion of a professional. Yes, she also has great music taste.  
A renewable power you've probably never heard of – until now. 

Before she became an influential feminist, actress, and activist, Jameela Jamil went through, in her words, "a dumpsterfire of hell and chaos." Learn of her life before fame and the odd jobs she worked like being a human test subject or teaching English to Polish nuns, and the tips and lessons she's picked up along the way.

How it feels to bake a cake in the eye of a storm

Lil-Lets Talk is a unique community platform in South Africa providing support for people with periods. We were absolutely captivated by their recent video of a family's inter-generational conversation on menstruation.

Morgan Harper Nichols is a mixed-media artist and musician whose artwork blesses the Instagram feeds of 2 million people. She recently started a podcast series that feels like 20-minute self-help moments grounded in poetry and art: You have what you need to live a beautiful life, 5 practices to find beauty and courage to carry on, by looking back.

In the podcast, she creates 5 unique opportunities for you to look back to your own story so you can see the ways you've grown, and find what you need to give you hope and courage to keep going. It's a beautiful meditation with practical takeaways.
