Angelina Jolie is such an inspirational woman!

Not only is the actress opening up schools with money from her jewelry line, Style of Jolie, but now she's standing up against wartime sexual violence!!

Miz Jolie attended the G8 Foreign Ministers meeting in London earlier today, and because she understands that "hundreds of thousands of women and children have been sexually assaulted in the wars of our generation," she wants to help put an end to it.

Rihanna Responds To More Man Down Backlash!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteInspiration


Wow! So articulate! And so right!

Rihanna is once again speaking out about the controversy surrounding her latest music video for Man Down, and called in to 106 & Park to discuss why it's so important that she included the murder scene in the clip!

Check out the interview (above)!

She pretty much sums it up perfectly when she says:

“Rape is happening all over the world and right in our own home and we continue to cover it up and pretend it doesn’t happen. I personally don’t condone violence or murder. I’ve been abused in the past and you don’t see me running around killing people in my spare time. I just want girls to be careful.”

Exactly! It's her right to sing about whatever she wants, and we think it's inspiration that she's using her platform to bring awareness to REAL-LIFE VIOLENCE that happens in society every day that doesn't get the attention and repercussions it NEEDS!

So proud of you for holding your ground, gurl!

You're doing the right thing!

Lara Stone's Calvin Klein Ad Banned In Australia

calvin klein ad with lara stone banned in australia

The Advertising Standards Bureau in Australia has removed the Calvin Klein Jeans campaign ad starring Lara Stone and some hotties after sexual assault workers complained that the image promoted sexual violence.

They said:

"The Board considered that whilst the act depicted could be consensual, the overall impact and most likely takeout is that the scene is suggestive of violence and rape.

The Board considered that the image was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men. It also demeans men by implying sexualised violence against women.”

Psychologist Alison Grundy added:

"If we continue to subject future generations of young men to great barrages of aggressive, misogynist, over-sexualised and violent imagery in pornography, movies, computer games and advertising, we will continue to see the rates of sexual violence against women and children that continue unabated today. Or worse."

Sad.
