Anousheh Ansari (USA, 1966-Present)

In 2006, Anousheh became the first Muslim woman in space. When asked about what she hoped to achieve on her spaceflight, she said, “I hope to inspire everyone — especially young people, women and young girls all over the world and in Middle Eastern countries that do not provide women with the same opportunities as men — to not give up their dreams and to pursue them. … It may seem impossible to them at times. But I believe they can realize their dreams if they keep it in their hearts, nurture it, and look for opportunities and make those opportunities happen.”

24-year-old photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled to west Mongolia with the intention of documenting the lives of traditional Kazakh eagle hunters, people who tame eagles for the purpose of hunting smaller animals.
With the traditions typically laying in the hands of the boys and the men, the biggest surprise throughout the journey was Svidensky’s discovery of a young eagle huntress, 13-year-old Ashol Pan, the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter. These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.

Awesome

HH:  So beautiful.

More young women choosing dogs over motherhood  (New York Post)
America’s next generation of youngsters should be called “Generation Rex.”
If you’re wondering why playgrounds around the city are so quiet and dog runs are packed, a new report has an answer: More and more US women are forgoing motherhood and getting their maternal kicks by owning handbag-size canines.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young US women, reports the business-news site Quartz.
Dog-crazy New York ladies told The Post that they aren’t surprised by the findings — and that they happily gave up diaper changes, temper tantrums and college funds for the easy affection of their doggy “child.”
HH:  And no college fund.

Photo of an old Samburu woman taken in the outskirts of Maralal in Northern Kenya. Asked about her about her age, all she could say was, that she was born in the year after the big drought. “But age doesn’t matter”, she says. What matters is to have enough children, in order to keep a large herd of cattle. Cause when the next drought comes, you’ll better have enough cattle to survive, says the mother of 14 children….
