Congratulations to Malala for winning the Nobel Peace Prize (an honor she will be sharing with Indian activist,Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian campaigner against the exploitation of children),who endured being shot by Taliban militants for promoting education for girls.

Got a Girl Crush On: Education activist, 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai

She demanded to reinstate education for women in Pakistan and was in turn shot by the Taliban. She is the youngest person to be nominated for win a Nobel Peace Prize. This girl speaks of fighting violence with peace—speaking beyond her years. She is beyond an inspiration at only 16-years-old.

Got a Girl Crush On: Elana Adler’s catcall samplers

This series of thirty-two (plus) samplers is intended to be provocative and evoke emotion. It is a contemporary feminist interpretation of women’s work and an objectification of my personal experience. Each captures a moment, giving these words a visual presence, a power, and a state of concreteness. These words were hurled casually and heard quickly but required hours of time-consuming, careful stitching.

The physically delicate, traditionally feminine, form of the piece engages the viewer and confronts him/ her with a sweetness that may mask its crassness and vulgarity.

You read one sampler. Perhaps you are amused, but as you continue reading and consider the body as an entire collection, the response changes. The inherent filth emerges. It is a beautification of an assault. Perhaps in the moment these statements are meant to compliment, but most don’t find vulgar, highly sexualized statements whispered or screamed at them by random strangers complimentary. Rather, they are an invasion of personal space.

The body of samplers is a contemporary and unexpected response to unsolicited and unwanted attention. They reduce the complex emotional experience of being heckled by catcalls to a simple piece of women’s work.

Hey GAGC-
New contributor Jess Meany here with a quick story. I had a good spell of a hangover this past weekend and thought to myself “I’m going to sit in the dark and put together a playlist of the most brutal and badass female-powered hardcore bands I know.” I wanted to put something together that was really going to fuel what was left of my afternoon. So here it is. I dedicate this playlist to finding the deepest, most worthless corners of your mind and rattling them awake. Thanks to Krista Ciminera, the vocal mastermind behind Sorrows to help me build this playlist, and to Meg for humoring me in posting this bad girl up.Not all bands on the list are currently active, but many are and there’s still some great archives online of everyone on the list. Hope everyone found a new favorite band! Go ahead and post some of your own favorite aggressively awesome and talented female musicians in the comments section—I need something to listen to for the rest of the week.
