Shailene Woodley: “How Do We Expect Men To Respect Women If Women Don’t Respect Women?”

“Oftentimes in films, even if you do have a really strong woman, there’s jealousy and envy among her sisters.

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Crack Open Divergent, Fall For “The Fall” & Craft A Cool Statement Necklace

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.
