If Instagram has taught me anything this summer it’s that everyone and their cousin went on a mission trip to Nicaragua and adventuring to waterfalls is the new cool thing to do.

"It reminds me of that Disney movie with the songs and the cartoon characters."

…..You’re gonna have to give me more than that, Mom.

"At Carnegie Mellon University, 40 percent of incoming freshmen to the School of Computer Science are women, the largest group ever. At the University of Washington, another technology powerhouse, women earned 30 percent of computer science degrees this year. At Harvey Mudd College, 40 percent of computer science majors are women, and this year, women represented more than half of the engineering graduates for the first time."

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. 

The absolute best part of this video is how incredibly supportive the audience and even the commentators are like EVERYONE is rooting for her, no one is looking down on her or doubting that she can finish it just because she’s a woman or because she’s built so small. Everyone is SO happy to see her soar through this and that is absolutely brilliant.
