WATCH. We know that women are the cornerstone of any great occurrence throughout mankind. And in the new filmHidden Figures, we learn about the African-American women who helped put men on the moon for our great nation.  Taraji P. Henson stars as Katherine Johnson, the African-American mathematician who calculated flight trajectories for Project Mercury and the 1969 Apollo 11 flight to the Moon. With her crew, played by Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe, they change the course of history, literally. This is one Bad Girls’ Club we’d love to be a part of. Hidden Figures playing in theaters nationwide.

WEAR. And more importantly, support a good cause. Sam Sisakhti, founder of UsTrendy,  an e-commerce site which specializes in fashion for juniors and young women, has launched a philanthropic foundation called “The Believe in Yourself Project.”  The program provides thousands of dresses to girls and young women who could not otherwise afford them, to wear at their upcoming school dances. In 2017 Sisakhti seeks to create a mentor program that will provide services and other support, and bring in women speakers to talk with girls. The aim is to promote a positive body image and healthy self-esteem among young women at an early age, empowering young girls to take on active social roles within their school communities.
