Girls, Don’t Listen To Taylor Swift

This isn’t going to be a piece tearing down a beautiful, successful and smart woman – not even close.  Taylor Swift is an luminious genius, and an outright superstar.  I love her music, I enjoy how brazen, powerful and autobiographical she can be while creating beats and melodies that energize us to dance.  She can speak to […]

Deployed out of need in WWII, the Soviet Union commissioned Maj Raskova to find 400 women to fill out their fighter and night bombing squadrons- including the 588th pictured above. They fit the women into any uniforms […]
