This week

Fashion designer and environmental campaigner Vivienne Westwood rides on top of an armored personnel carrier (APC) towards the home of British Prime Minister David Cameron's home in Chadlington, Oxfordshire on September 11, 2015 to highlight the Government's plan to use hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to recover fossil fuels from the ground in regions of the north of England. The vehicle parked outside the prime minister's home before a group of protestors in gas masks led chants and held banners calling for the Government to change it's policy on the controversial plans.

I’m writing this while watching Serena battle it out with Roberta Vinci in a match that’s WAY too much of a nail biter for my taste. Every point for Serena feels like a victory but Vinci is forcing us to pay attention. She is on those returns like nothing else with fast footwork and sharp serves. Seeing two women battle it out at this high level of competition is inspiring. As feminists we have a responsibility to help each other out but we also can’t shy away from healthy competition. Love watching badass women duke it out.

Vinci won. </3
