This is everything I want and need in life.
Is this what I think it is? IS THAT KATE AND DIANA TOGETHER? *brain meltdown*
Fed up with abusive husbands and corrupt officials, India’s poorest women are banding together, taking up arms, and fighting back. Even more shocking than the pink saris they wear: Their quest for justice is actually working. In one of the most backward regions of India, the badlands of Central India, village women dressed in pink saris are getting togther to fight corruption and injustice and to raise their voices against the system.”Pink Gang” fights for the rights of women and other marginalized people in rural India.
RIP NANCY WAKE (30 August 1912 – 7 August 2011)
Ms Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.
Work began earlier this month on a feature film about Nancy Wake’s life. Ms Wake, one of the models for Sebastian Faulks’ fictional heroine, Charlotte Gray, had mixed feelings about previous cinematic efforts to portray her wartime exploits, including a TV mini-series made in 1987.
“It was well-acted but in parts it was extremely stupid,” she said. “At one stage they had me cooking eggs and bacon to feed the men. For goodness’ sake, did the Allies parachute me into France to fry eggs and bacon for the men? There wasn’t an egg to be had for love nor money. Even if there had been why would I be frying it? I had men to do that sort of thing.”
Ms Wake was also furious the TV series suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.
Even before she escaped to Britain, through Spain, in 1943 to train as a guerrilla leader, Nancy had been top of the Gestapo’s French “wanted” list. With her husband, she ran a resistance network which helped to smuggle Jews and allied airmen out of the country.
Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit”. Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”
<3 what a bad ass <3
People in this fandom complain because M’gann likes to make cookies. That they are also complaining because Rocket is “sassy” does not surprise me. And anyway, Rocket was fantastic and if her words/actions had been coming from Wally or Robin, people would have thought they were great.
….Rocket IS sassy.
People will find anything to complain about when it comes to female characters.
Rocket is just too fabulous for most people to handle.
Wonder Woman: When I give the word, hit him with all your might.
Power Girl: Are you sure? That’s a lot of might.
Wonder Woman: Positive.
I didn’t really care for Carol’s last book, so I hope this one is better. I dig that costume.
Carol Danvers is the New CAPTAIN MARVEL
It’s going to be written by Kelly Sue DeConnick.
Count me in.
Day 6: Most attractive villain: no one
I skipped this yesterday, because I really don’t see the point. Heroes are sexy because they are good people. Villains are not.
Day 7: Sexiest civilian character: Mary Jane Watson:
Day 4: Hottest “alien” type character: Koriand’r/Starfire
1. She has always been in favor of sexual agency. She always will be.
2. She is an awesome warrior who can go toe to toe with Amazons.
3. When Donna died in the bad old verse, she was focused on carrying on Donna’s legacy, not in sitting in a room and crying all day about it.
4. In the current awesome verse, she has saved Jason and Roy’s lives multiple times.
5. She’s gorgeous. That’s not particularly complicated.
6. Her response to being pitied was to punch the person responsible for it. Fuck yeah.
