Zoë Kravitz: Just cool.

Zoë Kravitz. Do we need to explain ourselves? Utterly sexy and completely cool. We love the characters she has embodied up till now - 🎷Rob in the latest High Fidelity series (in the original series, Rob is male), 🧘🏽‍♀️Elizabeth in Big Little lies.. she knows exactly how to bring out girls that stand for anti-it, no-nonsense and naturally cool ❄️. We also love how behind that layer of cool, there’s a human soul that is sensitive and caring.And alas - how can she not with Lenny Kravitz as dad, Lisa Bonet as mom, a little sprinkle of Khal Drogo as stepdad and Jewish genes to top it off with: the perfect melting pot of cool, je ne sais quois chique...

Shirley: Fighting for Afghani gender equality as a white woman

Imagine being in 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞. Real love. Puppy love. Passionate love. Sometimes you’re lucky and you marry the love of your life. You have children with him, or her, and you grow old together. Or maybe not. But you still got to fall in love, fall out of it, get hurt, grieve some and do it all over again.Now imagine all of that is not a choice. You’re forced to marry. You’re not allowed to take compliments, wait.. you don't even know HOW to take a compliment because you’ve never been taught to. You’re not allowed to defend yourself, the men will do that for you.

Breonna - remembering your name

She lived in a neighbourhood with high levels of poverty and crime. Police had evidence two men were selling drugs from her house. The judge even granted a “no-knock” warrant to enter her house (if a judge does that it must mean it’s serious business right???). Also, let’s not forget that Kenneth, her boyfriend, fired a gun at the police first. If that wasn’t convincing enough yet: both Kenneth and Breonna were black.⠀They got them. The drug dealers. They got them good - shot her 8 times (sure she won’t be dealing any more drugs from her house) and got him arrested for assault, that’ll learn him for shooting at police officers. Good riddance.⠀Seems we got it wrong.⠀Breonna wasn’t dealing...

Greta Thunberg: saving the world and literally being cool

  🌎 @gretathunberg She made caring for the environment cool. She made Asperger’s cool. She made being smart cool. She made being an activist cool. She made taking the train cool. She made having her facts straight about emission levels and international reports cool. She made pushing for climate change on the political agenda cool.⠀💁‍♀️She made Sweden even cooler. She makes youth cool. Actually.. she’s more than cool. Cool might even be an insult. Greta, she gives us hope. She’s that spark of hope of the next generation will not only be selfish, will not only care about #instafame or ask for botox injections for birthdays.⠀✨Greta is a spark of hope that gives us hope that kids out there are growing up cooler, smarter,...
