Samantha Power is the youngest person ever to fill the role of American ambassador to the U.N. She’s a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. She’s a former Harvard professor, a law-school grad, and a journalist. She’s a wife and mother.
And she’s also one of the most articulate, inspiring, no-BS women we’ve ever met.
That is what Refinery29 wrote about what would become a casual article read on the internet but which changed my Sunday afternoon mind focus forever. I was in a filming break for Redesign YourSelf by Baneasa Shopping City scrolling the internet on my phone when I read it and decided to talk to you about it.

In 2015 Samantha launched #FREEthe20 – a campaign meant to highlight the plight of powerful women who are being silenced around the world and held as political prisoners.
“Our goal in this campaign is to put a face to what remains a major problem around the world, which is that women are being silenced and girls are being silenced. They’re silenced because they’re not given a good education or they’re silenced because when they speak up in their societies, they’re judged or they’re called bossy — as Sheryl Sandberg has pointed out. Or in this much more dramatic case, and often a life-and-death case, they’re put in jail and they’re kept away from their families.” Samantha Power

I wonder what A Question thinks on this matter.
I did not choose to speak about this subject in a post in which I`m wearing the new Italian Independent sunglasses brand available at Optiblu just for the fun of it. I think us, women should pick a pair of sunglasses, wear them with our heads up and always believe and fight for equality. Like veritable 007 agents.
Oh, and because Samantha is also a mother and because the two new members of my team, Mittens and Elena are mothers too, here`s one mommie site I think you would love – Stylish Mom
