Started in the US by Bruce Wil­lis’ daugh­ter Scout, Free The Nip­ple is an equal­ity cam­paign against fe­male op­pres­sion,

cen­sor­ship and gen­der in­equal­i­ties. Backed by a host of celebri­ties in­clud­ing Mi­ley Cyrus, Liv Tyler and Ri­hanna, the cam­paign has now been made into a film by the same name, which ad­dresses so­ci­etal taboos

against women. This on­go­ing cam­paign in Saudi Ara­bia to fur­ther women’s rights

is mak­ing all the right kind of noise. Af­ter years of re­fus­ing Saudi

women the right to drive, the ar­chaic so­ci­ety may just let them get be­hind the wheel, pro­vided they’re above 30, wear­ing no makeup and driv­ing dur­ing the day. It might not be a com­plete win but it’s a change nonethe­less. More

power to you! Priyanka Cho­pra and Freida Pinto re­cently launched this multi-level global cam­paign, which in­cludes a doc­u­men­tary film fea­tur­ing the two

stars and seven other Bol­ly­wood ac­tresses, to spread aware­ness about the im­por­tance of girls’ ed­u­ca­tion. The film talks about the sto­ries of nine amaz­ingly strong girls around the world striv­ing against dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances to achieve their

dreams of an ed­u­ca­tion.

Julie Hol­land’s much-awaited Moody Bitches: The Truth About The Drugs You’re Tak­ing, The Sleep You’re Miss­ing, The Sex You’re Not Hav­ing, And What’s Re­ally Mak­ing You Crazy (Harper Collins) hits shelves this April. We can’t wait to read it, and from what we hear, Oprah Win­frey is

al­ready hooked!
