Hijab Tutorial for Eid by Nabiilabee

more like “how to style your hijab and look like a majestic queen” oh goodness

There’s a lady down my street that does this and every time I see her I tell her how beautiful it looks on her. It really makes both of our days better.

…and all of these things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. [x]

Inspired by this and the other gifsets like it, because it occured to me that the woman whom all those traits existed in could very well be Martha Jones. (And many other women too, no doubt, but…MARTHA.)

Martha Jones , Martha jones , Martha Jones! :D

BIkers Against Child Abuse Helps Make Abused Children Feel Safe Again

“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”

Diane Ravitch on The Daily Show.

We would also address poverty directly. We would increase the minimum wage and make post-secondary education cheap or free, and we’d improve improve unemployment benefits and offer free job-training to the unemployed. 

Poverty is one of the few social ills where throwing money at the problem really does seem to work.

These are not radical, liberal ideas. In fact, in Europe most of them are associated with the more conservative parties, and many of them were associated with the American Republican party in the 80s. But the United States’s political climate is so different from anywhere else in the industrialized world that I fear we will just continue to get farther behind in education (and in % of people living in poverty) until we decide to make some big domestic investments.
