During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah

The mayor of Mississauga, Canada is a badass. via

Hazel McCallion, everbody.

92 years old,

34 years in office,

$0 in debt

$700 million in reserve

Eight prime ministers

One truck.

But women aren’t strong leaders… OH WAIT.

Now I’m sure somebody’s gonna tell me something but

  • supports a Palestinian state
  • supports Aids CHarities
  • told her city well if we cant get money y’all need to pay taxes and maintains a 76 approval rating
  • nick named Hurricane Hazel
  • and is so boss lady that she don’t run she’ tells  folks to give that money to charity

I will always reblog this lady.

This woman is officially my new hero.

In regards to the flooding in the GTA yesterday, she apparently said that she hasn’t seen rain like that since her neighbour Noah was building a boat.

New hero in life.

hi, so, uh

I assume a lot of people are hailing joan rivers as a feminist icon mainly because she opened comedy up to women through her standup

but, uh, unsurprisingly she was not the first to do that

image

that’s moms mabley.  she was a comedian in the 20th century and was pretty much one of the few popular female comedians during that time.  she did a lot of things people were uncomfortable doing at that time, like incorporating talks about racism into her standup and such.  she was really popular

(psst she was even doing comedy before joan rivers was born)

she also inspired quite a few comedians you probably know about today like bill cosby and whoopi goldberg (whoopi even did a whole documentary on her because she was so enamored with her)

she was also a lesbian and did standup in androgynous clothing a lot of the time.  and she was african american.  makes you wonder why you’ve probably never heard of her before huh

so before you go give all the credit to joan rivers for getting women into comedy or being a feminist icon or whatever, remember moms mabley and her contributions too

An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“[video]

Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.

Diana Prince 

this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?

Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.

In case anyone else is like me and didn’t get the Diana Prince joke at first and was super confused (Wonder Woman) and is curious to know who she is, she appears to be Huwaida Arraf (first link to her Twitter, second to her Wikipedia page).

thank you for the links and correct info, leggy

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson. Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement. 

Very few people have deserved a spot on this blog more

What advice do you have for a 14 year old girl?

porn4smartgirls answered:

This is so vague I love it. The voices you are hearing are real, god is speaking to you. The nation of France needs you. Don your armor, take up arms, lead the French army. This is your destiny, joan. When the flames come for you let them lick your bones and laugh.

ok so i was watching this gif carefully 

image

and when i first saw it i was like “aww Nat jumping into steve’s lap that’s so cute she’s like AHH STEVE SAVE ME” and then i was thinking ‘well she probably realized he’s way stronger than she is and could help shield her if they crashed’

but then i kept watching it and i noticed how she immediately pulls him forward 

image

and first i thought it was the momentum of her jump but you can clearly see in the gif how she gets settled (quickly) THEN pulls him close to her

and then i realized

image

that is a bullet hole. 

Nat somehow knew EXACTLY where Steve was gonna get shot at, jumped up into his seat, and saved him

image

Natasha Fucking Romanoff 

!!!!!!!!!!!!

she didn’t just jump in the front to save steve, tws shot at her first 

she also pushed sam away from the bullet bc she knew he’s next

image

all of this in the span of 3 seconds how fast do u think her brain works i mean DAMN
