"I was raped in my own bed and I carry that weight with me wherever I go."
So honored for the opportunity to share her story. Documentary photographer Morrigan McCarthy and I spent a school day with Columbia University student, artist, and activist Emma Sulkowicz, who is carrying a 50-pound mattress on campus for as long as her rapist is around. (In other words, until he graduates.) The mattress is absurdly heavy. (I tried to pick it up myself.) Read the story and see the photos on ELLE.com.

Prue Stent

From her series Pink

PRUE Stent is a 20 year old photographic student at RMIT University, Melbourne. The themes of her photography center around femininity and the struggle of identity in women. The color pink is used to represent femininity either physically or emotionally throughout her work.

Her Pink series conjures up feelings of feminine beauty. Stent uses the element of colour to question society’s standard of beauty; breasts, buttocks, and lips are slathered with pink paint; perhaps to illustrate these commodities are a woman’s own. Her images are dynamic, filled with movement.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
