 Smart Girls at the Party | Change the World by Being Yourself

Science thrives on curiosity and experimentation and sometimes the results can be messy and unpredictable. You might remember Kiera Wilmot - she was in the news because of a wayward school experiment. Her education and future were on the line as a consequence. Thanks to the support of thousands, her story had a happy ending! One of her supporters, Homer Hickam, invited Kiera and her sister to space camp and it is LEGIT! You've got to see this video. It is Kiera in her element! (from Amy Poehler's website (link above).


Violence Against Women -- It's a Men's Issue

  A Ted Talk by Jackson Katz 5/13. Click on link below to view:


Domestic violence and sexual abuse are often called "women's issues." But in this bold, blunt talk, Jackson Katz points out that these are intrinsically men's issues -- and shows how these violent behaviors are tied to definitions of manhood. A clarion call for us all -- women and men -- to call out unacceptable behavior and be leaders of change.
