Divisiveness is what catalyzed the first Women's March in 2017, and unity is what will keep it alive, said Melinda Hall."We need to be united and understand the reasons why people of different identities are struggling," she said during the Womxn's March Saturday in downtown Colorado Springs. "It's great that people are coming together here in Colorado Springs, because that's not always the case here."Hall walked alongside about 250 people marching for equal rights for women, no matter what race, sexual identification, religion, political affiliation or citizenship.

For adolescents blessed with willowy good looks, the fashion world offers the prospect of glamour, celebrity, and wealth. But this, for many, is what the beginning of a modeling career can actually look like: On her first test shoot as a 15-year-old, Dasha Alexander said, a photographer held a camera in one hand and digitally penetrated her with his other — a move, he explained, that would make the pictures more “raw” and “sensual.”When Coco Rocha refused to get naked on set as a 16-year-old, she said, the photographer replaced her with a girl who was younger and more obedient.

Kaley Cuoco’s doctor is upset with her. A few weeks afterThe Big Bang Theory star’s post-wedding shoulder surgery this summer, she began posting videos of her one-arm workouts. They included squats and hauling what looks like a giant sled across a parking lot as she sweats and makes the kind of fierce warrior face even an actress can’t fake.
