How Stories of Empowered Women Inspire

women

Women are slowly coming out of the shadows and getting the opportunities as well as the recognition they deserve. While gender equality still has a long way to go, seeing a number of females taking on the challenges and excelling across different fields that include STEM, leadership, sports, and gaming among others is inspiring.

Stories of female high achievers, influencers, and game-changers can be empowering to young girls. Someone who exhibits the traits of a confident woman can be a role model for girls as they aspire to do whatever it is that they want to accomplish in life. This is why the world needs more stories of women breaking gender stereotypes, thinking outside the box, and getting opportunities that have not be available to previous generations of women.

The film Hidden Figures which was released in 2016 is one of the best movies every young girl should watch. It tells the story of three brilliant African-American women working at NASA and their contributions to the country’s space program during its early years. It depicts the kind of environment in which the women have to deal with and the limitations it put on them as African-Americans and women.

Not many films put women at the forefront and highlight the game-changing roles they play. Hidden Figures manage to offer a glimpse into the challenges that women have to deal with in world where gender bias and inequality make it doubly harder to succeed. But seeing the actors portray some of the brilliant mathematicians of NASA is heartwarming and inspiring.

How To Cosplay Like A Pro

We all loved playing video games as a kid. Maybe even now.

They all say that video games are for boys. Even games has sexism on it! How in the world did that happen. Yeah. We live in a world that’s full of stereotypes so you can just forget about it.

There are a lot of female gamers as far as I know. Even my sister plays PlayStation games with me when we was young and she was actually beating me. I don’t know whether I suck at it or she’s just good at it. Now, there’s a trend of dressing up as your favorite character from video games, anime, manga or movies. Cosplaying as what they call it. Now, it’s the time for the girls to do their thing!

Here’s are tips for all those who want to Cosplay:

Think of a Character

Lara Croft

Pick A Sexy Character Like this one!

You can’t just Cosplay a tree. You need to think of something cool.

Like Mario for example, or Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. Don’t pick a character that you can’t give justice to. Like Iron Man, Blastoise or the Incredible Hulk.

Make Up

When you’re trying to cosplay the Crow, you need to have your make up done!

Pick a brand that’s hypoallergenic. You don’t wanna itch while parading on the Cosplay Event! This all depends on the character that’ you’re portraying. Don’t pick Mr. T if you’re Caucasian, you know what’s gonna happen next.

Copy the Clothes

Michelle Kwan

Rhinestones Are Perfect For This Look.

This is the most important one in my opinion. In order to look like Wolverine, you need to dress up as Wolverine.

Rhinestone patterns for figure skating dresses works lovely if you’re portraying Michelle Kwan. Haha. Just kidding. Of course, don’t forget your budget. Think of ways that you can save money and still look cool.

 

Hope this helps! Thanks!
