I met Olga in 2010 at VidCon. She was a very smart, very clever, very cool young woman. I thought it was weird (but kinda cool) that Tom had found a cool fan who could hold her own with a bunch of the top-tier VidCon folks and let her behind the curtain a little bit.

It…

Bravo, John Green and Hank Green! Now this is the way good men who are also prominent/famous should stand up again abusive relationships and violence against women and girls!

We are saddened to hear that Nelson Mandela has just passed away.  Mr Mandela is the quintessential male role model who showed with both his words and actions that it is possible to bring about change to what seems like insurmountable odds. And he did it with wisdom, courage and grace. We wish Mr Mandela’s family sincere condolences; And to Mr Mandela - RIP! You have inspired many young activists working to achieve peace and non-violence in all areas of human society. The Pixel Project is one of them. We will miss you very much. And while ending violence against women seems like an impossible feat, we will remember what you’ve achieved in your 95 years of life and we will keep fighting on.

Bystander Intervention is a superpower that we all can have if we step up to intervene to stop the violence against women and girls as it is happening. It can be dangerous but there are safe ways of doing so including not going it alone (e.g. roping in friends and other bystanders to help as a group) and creating a distraction for the aggressor.
What have YOU done to intervene to stop street harassment or any other form of Violence Against Women? 
It’s time to stop violence against women. Together.

Every year, approximately 14 million girls are married before they turn 18, robbed of their rights to education, health and a life free of violence. Child marriage undermines our efforts to build a healthier, safer, just and more prosperous world for all.

Solutions exist. Child marriage can end. But we must work together.

This new video from Girls Not Brides looks at how we can work together to make child marriage history and improve the lives of millions of girls around the globe.
