In a new and powerful ad for Nike’s “Unlimited Pursuit” Campaign, Simone Biles, Serena Williams and Gabby Douglas are just a few amazing athletes giving us a behind-the-scenes look at how they slay in real competition every day.
In the press release, Nike also noted that these athletes are those “who push their own limits to embark on an unlimited journey to empower the next generation of athletes.”
Several photos of armed French policemen forcing a Muslim woman to disrobe on a beach in Nice, France, have gone viral. The photo is horrifying. A Muslim woman was wearing a hijab, a tunic and long leggings on the Promenade des Anglais — the site of the Bastille Day attacks. The modest attire is similar to a burkini, a full-body wetsuit that’s been banned in several European cities.
This morning, protesters gathered outside the French embassy in London, poured bags of sand out on the streets, and staged a beach party, complete with deck chairs, inflatables, and women in a wide array of clothing, from bikinis to burkinis, to protest France’s racist ban on “religious swimwear” in its coastal towns.
