We are happy to announce our collaboration with Baheya Foundation, for early detection and treatment of breast cancer in the coming months.
We started with the “Farhet Baheya” campaign where we contributed by giving every brave fighter a special t-shirt to thank her.
Part of the campaign’s profit is directed to support the fighters of Baheya.
Follow and join us in other campaigns to support them.💪🏻🌸

Radwa is the first Arab woman to receive a "Tandem Master" training license where a student skydiver is connected to a harness attached to a tandem instructor and also the first Egyptian to get the Accelerated Free Fall “AFF” license.
Radwa was able to make two thousand jumps of up to sixteen thousand feet high, and despite the length of the training period and its cost, she persisted to continue.
She founded and led the first women's skydiving team in the UAE in 14 world championships for quadruple jumping.

“I am very moved to see you fighting for your own freedom, for your own empowerment, to manage your own money, to stop violence and to stand for office and become Councilors and Chairpersons in the markets,” said Executive Director Mlambo-Ngcuka when she met women vendors in the markets of Dar es Salaam.
Bustling centres of business and community, the markets have a troubling side as well: 40% of women traders have faced some form of harassment. To combat the gender-based discrimination and empower women, we've been working with local partners through @untrustfundevaw.
🌹💀🌹 from @hausofhoodoo - This video is HYPNOTIC. I’ve been watching it nonstop for the past 10 minutes. It puts me in a trance. I can feel what she’s feeling in her body, in her spirit.
I was just telling my Mother (Godmother) how much I miss our Vodou parties (ceremonies, fets).
Dancing is a vital part of our culture and traditions. Through dance we enter trance and ecstasy like state.
Dancing to those drums is ORGASMIC. Through dance we let go of inhibitions, stigmas, attachments and allow ourselves to be taken over and under.
As I watch this video over and over again I can’t help but crave to be her, in that moment. There’s no feeling like it I can assure you of that. I want to get lost and found in the experience.
The drums are Spirits of their own and they are the first thing we greet (salute) when a ceremony begins.
We first become possessed by the Spirit of the drums before we are possessed by the other Vodou.
Happy International Women's Day!
Today we are celebrating the legacy of renaissance woman Katherine Dunham! (1909-2006).
Katherine Dunham was a legendary African American + French Canadian dancer, choreographer, anthropologist, activist, and creator of the world-renowned Dunham technique. Dunham revolutionized American dance and shed light on the dances of the African Diaspora: places such as Haiti, Jamaica, and Trinidad.
Dunham was a pioneer in the use of folk and ethnic choreography and one of the founders of the anthropological dance movement. She showed the world that African American heritage is beautiful. She completed groundbreaking work on the Caribbean and Brazilian dance anthropology as a new academic discipline. She also is credited with bringing these Caribbean and African influences to a European-dominated dance world.

A wee interview I did earlier this year when singing Peggy Seeger with the choir on International Women’s Day for a docu that may or may not come out about Peggy Seeger. Whatever you you choose to or not to affiliate yourself with, let’s not forget the extreme violence of systemic patriarchy inflicted on humans around the world, right down to the microcosms of everyday diminutive language that can unconsciously stem from this systemic violence, but is really a softer, more palatable version of it. We can all do better. Take care of each other, language is important, language is dangerous, language can liberate and oppress at the same time. 🎥 Samuel Weniger.
