1989

Taylor Swift is an American singer who is famously known for her break up songs. However, she uses that to her advantage. Her latest album, 1989 sold over a million copies within the first week of it's release, making her the first solo artist to break that record. She has won over 227 awards including MTV, AMA, CMA, Billboard, and Grammy's. She strongly believes that men and women should have the same rights. She acknowledges that her former relationships in an extended amount of time have attached unflattering names to her image but she doesn't let that stop her. She makes sure everyone know she is her own person and no other human being defines her worth or value. Taylor wants young girls to grow up and understand feminism so they know that their opportunities aren't limited and they too, can make a difference in the world we live in.

I Am Malala

Malala Yousafzai is an 18 year old advocate from Pakistan who believed women had a right to receive an education. At the age of 15, the Taliban issued a death threat against Malala, resulting in a gunman shooting her as she made her way home after school. She survived and since then, she received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. Despite being a target, Malala continues to advocate in favor of women receiving an education. At the age of 18, she opened a school for Syrian refugee girls in Lebanon. The money that goes towards the school comes from her Malala Fund although she encourages world leaders to spend military money on education for children and teenagers worldwide.
