On Thin Ice: Can the Fashion Industry Help Save the Planet? Marie Claire
The fashion business, which brings in $2.5 trillion per year, is responsible for 85 percent of all textiles that end up in landfills (about 21 billion tons) each year and for 10 percent of global carbon emissions, which are the primary source of human-caused global warming. The fashion industry is also the second-largest user of water, research by the Danish Fashion Institute shows, currently contributing 20 percent of the industrial water waste on the planet.

Huma Abedin On Her Job, Family, and the Campaign of a Lifetime Vogue
Powerful, glamorous, and ubiquitous, Abedin is in many ways the engine at the center of Clinton’s well-run machine, crucial and yet largely out of sight. She presides over the candidate’s public appearances, helping set message points and optics. She coordinates much of the campaign’s work around the office, bringing a large, sprawling operation in line with Clinton’s vision and voice. And she is a key point person for the most essential parts of the coming Democratic convention: who will speak, what they’ll say, and in what order they’ll appear.
To onlookers, Clinton and Abedin seem to travel the world as a single entity joined by complementary strengths. If Clinton spends her life at the microphone, Abedin is constitutionally circumspect. If Clinton, in her bold suits and impeccable coifs, distills a certain era of feminist empowerment, Abedin, with her breezy downtown dresses and mobile power-dialing, is the professional face of a younger, more wired-in female generation. As Clinton’s longest-serving staffer, she is both the campaign’s deepest memory and its farthest-seeing eye—a woman who, more than anyone besides the Clintons themselves, can envisage the sort of president that Hillary will be, based on her work in the White House, the Senate, and the State Department, and who’s down with what she sees.
What Do Women Leaders Have in Common by Sharmilla Ganesan The Atlantic
Whether the woman is German chancellor Angela Merkel, Bangladeshi prim minister Sheikh Hasina, Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (pictured above), or Agnes Igoye of Uganda, who works with her government to counter human trafficking; Ikram Ben Said, the founder of Tunisian women’s-rights organization Aswat Nissa; and Sairee Chahal of India, who started SHEROES, a digital platform that helps women get back into the workforce -- researchers focused on female leadership are identifying common threads among the women.
Almost universally, women talk about finding their voices and their confidence at dinner-table conversations with their families. As daughters of engaged parents, the young women felt confident to express an opinion. Fathers seem to play a particularly important role in encouraging their daughters, as were mothers or older sisters who were leaders already.
Researcher Susan R. Madsen of Utah Valley University says that the path of women leaders doesn't typically look like men's:
“Men are more strategic and [tend to follow] a more linear path to becoming a leader. Women’s paths are much more emergent. They tend to not necessarily look ahead and think, ‘I want to be on top.’ Women would point to a number of experiences—motherhood, or working with a non-profit, or sitting on a board, as shaping their path to becoming leaders,” she said. Madsen likens this to a “patchwork quilt” of experiences—an aggregate that is more clear and cohesive together than as distinct parts.
Another common thread among women leaders is being held to a higher standard than men. For more insights read on at The Atlantic.
