awesome ladies

when anne boleyn died she was mostly likely in her mid-thrities, and perhaps looked older given the years of stress she lived as queen, she may have had a few greys hair and fine lines on her face

when elizabeth i met her troops at tilbury she was 54 years old, she had bad teeth and thin hair

when eleanor of aquitaine became queen of england she was already 30 years old, when her son richard began king she was 67 and lived some of the most active and adventurous years of her life until her death at 80

when catherine of aragon arrived at her trial at blackfriars and begged henry on hers knees to reconsider and then walked out of court and refused to return she was 43 years old, she was plump and tired looking after years of miscarriages

when her daughter mary raised an army for her right to the throne and entered london she was 37 years old, she was very small and looked much older than her age because of the years of bad health she had endured

anyway women don’t have to be 25 and hot to be important and we should let these women be the ages they were when they did these things

Can I just say how proud I am of Zendaya? Like this lil mfer went from co-starring in a Disney show, to producing, directing, and starring in her own Disney show, only to be in a MARVEL movie. Not just any Marvel movie but Spiderman??? And now she’s gonna be in the movie The Greatest Showman with like, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Hugh Jackman???

I’ve seen lots of interviews with her and she seems like the most down to earth sweet girl but on top of all that she STAYS slayin red carpets lookin like a beautiful glazed donut fresh out the oven??

Like this is what she’s always wanted to do and she DID THAT what kind of glo up goals

SA student battles robbers over thesis
Noxolo Ntusi had the only copy of her master's thesis on a hard drive in her bag.

Ms Ntusi, a medical scientist at the National Health Laboratory Service, had her molecular zoology master’s thesis on a hard drive when a car drew up beside her and two men jumped out, one brandishing a gun.

But while the attackers were able to take her lunch bag, Ms Ntusi refused to let go of the bag containing the hard drive.

“I was thinking about my masters. I’m almost done with what I’m writing, there’s no way I will let them take it,” she said.

“I was just pulling myself into a ball. They were trying to put me in the car, I think, but I made myself so heavy that they just gave up.”

During the attack, one of the robbers pressed a gun to her head and repeatedly threatened to shoot her.

But Ms Ntusi held on. Losing the thesis would have meant having to ask for an extension until next year, she said.

“I really want to finish so badly, I want to do it now. Nothing got in the way of that, but it was very dangerous,” she said.

Footage of the struggle was recorded on security cameras attached to nearby homes in the suburb of Auckland Park.

here’s to Sybil Ludington, a 16 year old girl who rode 40 miles alone, more than twice the distance of Paul Revere, 9pm until dawn on horseback while using a stick to knock on doors so she could wake up 400 men to fight at the Battle of Ridgefield. Her amazing accomplishment and help to the Revolutionary War will not be forgotten just because the education system likes to forget that women were an amazing force throughout history.
