"Gulabi Gang" is a gang of women in India who track down and beat abusive husbands with brooms.

this is too thug not to reblog

That’s not all they do - they’ve got more information on their website

What else they do that is awesome:

  • Stop child marriages
  • Persuade families to educate girl-child
  • Train women in self-defense
  • Oppose corruption in administration
  • Create awareness about the evils of dowry
  • Register FIRs against sex-offenders and abusive husbands
  • Publicly shame molesters
  • Encourage women to become financially independent

Yesssssssss. Female empowerment is a wonderful thing.

Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive.

FAKE TV SERIES MEME »  Gina Torres and Laverne Cox as sister con artists who reunite after years apart, finances dwindling, to get back into the business. Expect lots of tomfoolery, costume changes, and a healthy sibling rivalry in stealing other people’s money.

*taps mike* Guys I want to talk about this scene, as it is not only my favourite Martha scene but possibly my favourite companion scene-

Because Martha Jones has just been through ABSOLUTE HELL, and you see that woman there, Professor Docherty? She sort of helped with that! She traded Martha’s life for her son’s. Martha figured she would, but you know, being betrayed can’t be nice.

AND WHAT DOES MARTHA DO when everything is back to normal? SHE FINDS THE WOMAN WHO BETRAYED HER AND SHE FORGIVES HER JUST LIKE THAT AND GIVES HER FLOWERS

Martha Jones (who understands only too well one’s desire to protect one’s family) is THAT COMPASSIONATE AND THAT KIND

You’d be hard-pressed to find another show on television right now that celebrates women from all stages, walks and choices of life with as much compassion and humor as Call the Midwife does.

my new piece for This Recording

Maybe this reaction to childbirth is relatively young itself, born along with the generation that is being born in Call the Midwife, once contraceptives became widely and legally available and childbirth became a choice, not a consequence. So much good has been gained from the introduction of the pill that it’s hard to see what we lost with its arrival: namely, the knowledge that women are strong, that women shelter and give life, that childbirth is a raw, mysterious, beautiful thing that belongs only to women in the sense that women, and only women, will ever be able to do it.”
