I really like the Upwarthy infographic, because I remain shocked at how young girls are affected by marriage and childbirth. There is one bit that … irritates me, I guess, and it’s saying “adolescent girls 15-19” being married, then talking about ending “child marriage”. But 18- and 19-year-olds aren’t children. The issue is (often) forced marriage, and I find the language clumsy to talk of 18- and 19-year-olds as children.

I was so excited when I saw the article on new bra sizes. Mine NEVER fit right. Then I saw that they won’t have them for those of us with larger endowments. That’s crazy. Aren’t we the ones willing to pay that much for a bra that fits right. I know for me it would be worth it.
