March 8th was International Women’s Day, meant for us to recognize and appreciate all our strong women all over the world – transgender and disabled included. This year’s theme was “Make It Happen”, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognizing women. Many people participated online, while others ran events celebrating women to raise awareness for gender equality. A simple way to participate next year is to wear purple, the color that the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) adopted to symbolize the plight of the Suffragettes.
Must Appreciate – Scarlet Johansson:
In light of International Women’s Day behind us, take a moment to appreciate Scarlet Johansson shutting down this sexist interviewer who asks her if she could wear underwear under her costume in “The Avenger’s” – because seriously, who would ask a guy that?
Must Laugh – The Avengers Outtakes:
After coming across an Avenger’s interview, I decided to do a little throwback to The Avenger’s movie with a Bloopers and Outtakes Gag Reel. I don’t know about other people, but something about scenes happening in movies any way other than they’re supposed to makes me laugh.

Must Watch – Lip Sync Battle:
The ever-creative Jimmy Fallon, host of The Tonight Show, continues his lip-syncing battle skit with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. Our favorite lip sync battle, shown in an upper school assembly before, is 13 minutes long and features Ferrell gettin’ down to Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”, Fallon making an emotional performance of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”, and Hart getting into John Legend’s “All of Me”.
