My daughter is 1/2 Korean and 1/2 Jamaican. She loooooves books. I think she might love books more than she loves anything else (including mama!). One day she’ll be able to read them on her own and I want her to be able to find herself in them. I want her to know that girls that look like her can be anyone, can do anything. 
We need diverse books because this is my family.

Mo’Ne Davis’ hot streak continues. She dominated in her team’s opening game in the Little League World Series on Friday, becoming the first girl to throw a shutout in LLWS history. Davis is the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series but the first to throw a shutout.
"Throwing 70 miles an hour," she said. "That’s throwing like a girl."

Watch: If women catcalled men, it would sound completely absurd 

Catcalls are something every woman has experienced and is expected to live with. After all, it’s just a compliment, right? What’s the big deal?

The big deal is that not only is street harassment an invasive and dehumanizing experience for women, but it perpetuates the “boys will be boys” mentality that men can’t help but look, and that women should be flattered by the attention. It’s a disturbing gender dynamic that has become acceptable social behavior.

And if you need help seeing the absurdity of this practice, all you have to do is flip the tables, as this BuzzFeed parody did.
