"Today's #SignofResistance is in honor of #BreshaMeadows who, at age 14, shot her father to protect herself and her family from his constant abuse and terror. Bresha's mother has called her a hero for defending her family. Bresha, now 15, is currently incarcerated, criminalizes for surviving domestic abuse."
So while REAL murders like George Zimmerman get to live their lives, a HERO and surviver of domestic abuse is rotting in prison where she is vulnerable to more abuse and torture. This is just another prime example of how corrupt the American justice system happens to be. #FreeBresha 🖤💛💖💕💙💗💚💓💜

Women in Africa have set new standards for female leadership globally. For instance, Tanzania’s Anna Tibaijuka and Asha-Rose Migiro, and Jeanne Martin Cissé from Guinea have all held top positions at the UN.
Meanwhile at a national level, many African countries have made important progress in women’s representation. Rwandan women, for example, hold around 60% of the country’s legislative seats, the highest in the world.
