When was the first time you came to the United States?
I wish my friends would take random pictures of me when we hang out because I’m an arrogant prick and I want more pictures of myself that aren’t selfies.
Someone finally said it
What I lack in social skills, I make up for in useless pop culture trivia and TV/Movies quotes.
Meryl Streep organized an event auctioning the wardrobe of The Devil Wears Prada at a special screening and donated a portion of those proceeds to Equality Now and other part to Dress for Success, an organization that helps prepare low-income women for career development.
The numbers that appear at the side of each name is not a rank for how much I love these actresses, because I love them all unconditionally. For most of the people who know me you will realise that this post may have been harder to cut down than actually conjure up! I love actresses, I admire many ranging from film and television to theatre. So, may I present to you the many women in which I’m in love with … I mean, my 30 favourite actresses!
ALL of the photos have come different corners of the world wide web, I own none of them and I’m ever thankful for Google and Tumblr.

In modern day society it’s hard to believe that things such as sexism are a common factor, but unfortunately they are – especially towards women in sport. As a young woman who has played sport from a very young age and still playing as part of a netball team at eighteen, it has always been worrisome of the lack of female sporting role models.
MPs have recently said that
“sexist attitudes, boring lessons and “gratuitous derogatory remarks” made by media commentators put women off sport.”
The world of sport seems to be caught up in only one aspect of sport and that being male based ones, which has a knock on effect meaning less women participate in sports – which an Active People Survey by Sport England highlighted. One of the main projects put into action by Sport England, which seems to be having a positive effect on the amount of women playing sports is the Back to Netball Schemes across the country. Many women played netball in high school, as it’s a main focus on the curriculum, and therefore it’s easy to get women back into playing and enjoying it. It’s like riding a bike!
This however doesn’t help young girls who already participate in sport to stick with it. Ancient stereotypes act as peer pressure to many girls and women, who believe if they participate in sport they’re “manly”, “unfeminine” and “unattractive”. When, in fact, it should be emphasised that participating in sport is a good, healthy lifestyle choice. Many media sources such as Sky Sports could probably promote female based sports in more prominent and positive fashion. I believe that the Super League netball season could be broadcast at more appropriate times, with better sponsorship deals who will provide a suitable amount of funding for the sport.
It’s not as if this is going to change over night, it’s going to take effort and commitment to change it. And, there has been an improvement, but it seems like it’s come to a stand still. Maybe sports channels on TV should offer a wider range of sports, rather than showing mostly football, cricket, golf and rugby. Without the change, sports leading ladies such as Jessica Ennis-Hill, Sara Bayman and Chemmy Alcott are going to fade away completely.
