Meryl Streep Urges Congress to Reconsider Equal Rights Amendment

Meryl Streep ERA

Meryl Streep is taking the active approach when it comes to the fight for equal pay. The actress has reportedly sent letters to members of congress, urging them to support an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. The amendment has been a long time coming, too. Written in 1920, it wasn’t passed by Congress until 1972, to be ratified by the states. Thirty-five states ratified the amendment, but 38 states need to do so in order for it to be added to the Constitution. The Equal Rights Amendment “[affirms] the equal application of the Constitution to all persons regardless of their sex,” according to the amendment’s website. The amendment has been stalled since 1982.

Streep is urging congress to resurrect the ERA, especially in these times when equal pay and treatment under the law is such a hot topic. “A whole new generation of women and girls are talking about equality – equal pay, equal protection from sexual assault, equal rights,” Streep wrote in her letter. She included a copy of Equal Means Equal by ERA president Jessica Neuwirth in the packet. 

The proposed amendment states that “equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” Sounds pretty reasonable and like something that should already be in the Constitution in the first place. Hopefully, we will finally see it written into law.

Watch This Makeup Artist Transform into Ruby Rose

It seems every makeup artist with a keen sense of light and shadow is picking up their brushes to transform themselves into…well, just about whatever they please. Paolo Ballesteros has gained notoriety for his expert hand, contouring himself to look like pretty much any celebrity you can think of. From Kris Jenner to Beyoncé, his epic transformations have gained him more than a few Instagram followers. But this latest makeup transformation from artist Kandee Johnson has really gotten our attention.

Johnson posted a tutorial showing how, with just enough contouring, you too can look like Orange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose, aka the girl pretty much everyone is obsessed with right now. Rose’s feminine features and masculine edge have gained her plenty of fans and Johnson gave them a little love by making herself look like the androgynous star. And now, for some reason, we are way more attracted to Johnson than we were before…

Watch Johnson’s transformation in the video above.

The 23-year-old beauty stunned in a midi dress by the Australian-born, New York-based label, featuring silk pleats in soft pink and white. Andreja accessorised with a chic white neck scarf and a high pony which showed off her striking facial features.

While we think the ensemble could’ve looked great with a white pointed-toe or classic two-strap heel, which would’ve tied in with the outfit’s colour palette, we think the black ankle boot showcased Andreja’s usual edge while wearing such a pretty look.

The one-of-a-kind piece by One Day Bridal is made from blue moda and natural silk organza, and finished with natural satin ribbon and gold thread hand embroidery with words of wisdom like, “Be your own kind of beautiful” and “Don’t hurt. Live gently. Be kind.”

Beauty is pain, my dears, but sometimes looking good just isn’t worth it. Just ask the 35-year-old Australian woman who collapsed after squatting in a pair of skinnies, and ended up in hospital for four days.

Helping relatives move to their new home, The West Australian reports that the Adelaide woman spent the day squatting and cleaning out cupboard in her skinny jeans. As she was walking home through a park later that night, her feet became week and she fell, crawled to the side of the road, and hailed a taxi to take her to hospital.

Medical staff cut the jeans off her as they were unable to remove them any other way, finding out that the prolonged squatting had cut off the blood supply to her calves and made them swell. She also lost feeling in her lower legs as a result, which led to damaged muscle and nerve fibres.

The woman revealed that she felt her jeans getting tighter and tighter as the day went on. She was put on an intravenous drip in hospital, and it took up to four days for her to be able to walk again. (more…)
