Other notable women being honored Monday night, November 9 include Chelsea Clinton, Robin Roberts, Sylvia Earle, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Burton, Natalia Vodianova, Samantha Power and Lavern Cox as Glamour Women of the Year 2014.

Today we celebrate Lupita’s latest ad for L’Absolu Rouge lipstick, lensed by Mert & Marcus. Lupita’s clear, confident voice on the subject of embracing her own beauty — thanks to seeing models like Alex Wek — inspire her to become a resounding voice for a broad definition of beauty in America and worldwide. There is no doubt that Lupita is empowering young women everywhere with her confident and joyful, sensitive and psychologically empathetic spirit.

Glamour Magazine’s The Girl Project

The most important news coming out of Monday night’s Glamour magazine Women of the Year awads dinner is the creation of The Girl Project, a collaboration between Glamour readers and supporters and four organizations devoted to keeping girls in school.

“Cindi Leive, Glamour’s editor in chief, said that the magazine started this initiative in part because of recent world events, including the girls kidnapped from their school in Nigeria and the many schools damaged in Gaza,” writes the New York Times.

Glamour will partner with CARE USA, Plan International USA, Girls Inc. and Communities in Schools to distribute the funds.

Malala Also Rebuilding Schools in Gaza

Glamour readers will be joined by Malala Yousafzai, who recently donated her prize of $50,000 from the World’s Children Prize to rebuilding schools in Gaza. Listen to Malala’s speech in Sensual Rebel.

Equally inspired in Anne’s post was news of an innovative project in Kenya where the government will pay a Maasai father nine cows — her bride price — for each daughter he keeps in school.

Dolphin Slaughter In Taiji, Japan Is Business As Usual; So Are The Global Protests

London protest at Japanese embassy against Taiji’s continued slaughter of dolphins in the name of nationalism.Tonight is personally poignant to me, as I return to writing about the ongoing slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. As I reset the content voice of Anne of Carversville into one that returns us to the 2010-2011 years, returning to this barbaric practice of killing dolphins in the name of Japanese nationalism is an important topic to reignite.

The majority of our writing around nature, sustainability and animal conservation is in our Human Values channel. But because dolphins, elephants and bonobos are mammal societies organized along largely female principles, I’ve moved those articles to GlamTribale — where we support girls education and elephant conservation in Kenya.

November 7 London Anti-Taiji Dolphin Slaughter Protest

Today’s protest outside the Japanese embassy in Piccadilly was led by Ric O’Barry, a former dolphin trainer to the dolphin Flipper, later dedicated his life to stopping the capture of dolphins worldwide. Rick O’Barry rose to prominence in 2009 with the Academy Award winning release of ‘The Cove’.

In April 2014, Ric O’Berry released raw footage of Taiji’s dolphin slaughter to Newsweek magazine, which ran an in-depth story ‘Twitter Tsunami: A Japanese Fishing Village Unleashes A Global Social Media Storm.

Every year over a period of several months beginning in September and generally ending in March, the town of Taiji quite literally takes a blood bath. The scene is obscene and the material of nightmares as Taiji’s fishermen herd captured dolphins into pens and kill them with total barbarity.

Some are sold off to entertainment hotels, theme parks and acquariums around the world. The rest of the crying dolphins are stabbed by blood-bathed fishermen wielding killer harpoons, sold for their meat in local markets.

There is wide disagreement between the locals and dolphin conversation groups like Sea Shepherd as to how long Taiji has been killing dolphins each. Both sides agree that Sea Shepherd — devoted to dolphin welfare — arrived for the first-time in 2003.

Newsweek reports that the numbers of dolphins killed each year in Taiji has declined from about 2000 in 2000 to 900 in 2012. The particularly brutal harpoon featured in ‘The Cove’ has been replaced with a new one which is thrust into the dolphin’s spine, killing it more quickly and with less blood. The locals of Taiji accuse producers of ‘The Cove’ with doctoring the water to make it redder.

Toni Garrn for Closed Denim Jeans - #youandmegirl Campaign In Burkina Faso


Hamburg-born, top model Toni Garrn has teamed up with the Hamburg-based denim company Closed and the charity Plan International in a jean collaboration. All profits from the line will provide scholarships for impoverished women in Burkina Faso through Plan International’s ‘Because I’m a Girl’ campaign. 

“It is a personal project. In Hamburg, I go to visit both Plan and Closed,” says Garrn, and she also serves as an ambassador for the charity. “I had always sponsored children. At fifteen, I had sponsored two girls through Plan International. I continued talking with the charity because I just thought they did a great job everywhere. They really focus on child protection and education—they don’t just drop food or money. It is more like, ‘How can we make the whole community sustainable? When we leave, are they are better off?’”

Garrn makes it clear that the project is about the charity and supporting girls and women in Burkina Faso, located on Africa’s Ivory Coast — not honing her credentials as a designer. 

The BBC reports today that Burkina Faso is the scene of mass protests, calling for a civilian transition of power and the end of President Blaise Compaore’s 27-year rule. While Burkina Faso is at risk for an ebola outbreak, neighboring countries already infected, ebola is not currently a problem in the country.

Take a listen while Toni Garrn explains more about her Closed Jeans collaboration for women and girls in Burkina Faso.
