You see this girl on the right? Her name is Millie and she is 12 years old.
She suffers from Friedreich’s Ataxia. It’s a very rare neuromuscular condition, it’s so rare that it only affects about 1 in 50,000 people in the United States, the condition effects every muscle and every nerve, its is degenerative meaning everyday she is worse than the day before. She gradually loses the ability to live. There’s no cure for this condition. Most people with Friedreich’s ataxia die in early adulthood if there is significant heart disease, the most common cause of death. Some people with less severe symptoms live much longer. Unfortunately in addition to this condition she also suffers from Cardiomyopathy, Scoliosis which is a medical condition in which a person’s spine is curved from side to side and Pes Cavus caused by Ataxia.
I am writing this post to raise awareness across the world for this rare condition. Yes I say world, as here on Tumblr we have people from all over the world, and by reblogging this post, you can also raise awareness.
You can also find more about Millie’s life and how she is feeling on her website: http://milliemaesworld.co.uk/millie/. 
On the website you can also find a way to help.
Thank you everyone who will share this post on your blog.

cambridge university students were asked on campus why they needed feminism. here are 60 answers. click the link for over about 600 more. 

I’m crying, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week

Reblogging AGAIN because just last week my brother ‘liked’ a picture on fb in which a woman explained why she does NOT need feminism. Her reasons included (among others) “I make my own decisions and I’m in charge of my body and I don’t nee ‘epowering’” … “I like men and refuse to demonise them” …
I just couldn’t get over the extreme ignorance and stupidity of this woman and, the fact that my own brother liked it lets me know he TOO is ignorant to the true nature of real feminism and has been on the receiving end of man-hating extremists.

So yeah, reblogging because it STILL needs to be seen and heard.
