Gloria's Pick:

My personal guilty pleasure is fashion. Ironically, 80 percent of top female fashion brands are led by male designers. Dior's first female creative director is shaking that up. The reviews predictably reveal stereotype threat. I mean, comfortable shoes? Shocking.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"The other thing I know from work around the world is that women truly only get empowered when there’s a collective of them. You get one woman down in a village trying to break the system. She can’t do it at the village level unless she’s got women around her. It’s the power of the collective. Then she can go demand her rights."

--Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation
