"Gentrification is a symptom, not the disease. So I would urge all of those protesting it to channel an equal amount of energy into fighting for things like a higher minimum wage and inclusionary housing. These aren’t the kinds of causes that will get you a lot of likes on Facebook, but they’re far more likely to help create the kinds of communities that anti-gentrification folks say that they want. Anything less is just a fight against $4 toast."
"But the future is the future, the past is the past; now we should work on something new. This is our attitude, and how we should live in this world. This is “dana prajna paramita,” to give something, or to create something for ourselves. So to do something through and through is to resume our true activity of creation. This is why we sit. If we do not forget this point, everything will be carried on beautifully. But once we forget this point, the world will be filled with confusion."
Finally! An end to… women climbing ladders (literally), high heels crushing tiny men, power suits in boxing gloves and babies in briefcases. Introducing the Lean In Collection – a library of 2,500 stock photos devoted to strong, badass, authentic images of women, girls and families. My latest project for LeanIn.Org, in partnership with Getty Images.
