On October 9th, 2012, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai rode the bus home after taking an exam in Swat Valley, Pakistan. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman due to her effort in promoting access to education, especially for girls and women. Malala is one of Bonsters’ most respected heros standing up for freedom and equality. Sure, Bonsters have done such things as skipping school once in a while, however, we wouldn’t be here if we’re illiterate or don’t know how to use a computer! We hope one day children and adults around the world will have access to education they desire.

Oh yes! There’s no wrong in a powergirl loving flowers, patterns, silks and clouds shaped like animals! There’s strength in surrendering. Surrender to the people we love, things we dream of, beauty that dazzles our minds, smiles from strangers, the weaknesses that we have, AND, fuzzy kitties~ Let’s pluck up our courage, walk downstairs and open the door of the innermost chamber of our hearts.

Do you know that the feminists never did burn bras? The bra-burning stereotype of radical feminists is a false image. Although many would love to, and not only bras, burn lots of other things! What’s more restricting and destructive than bras perhaps is the idea of what a girl can and cannot do. Swipe a match and burn up tens of thousands of bras and girdles and chastity belts but it’s not easy to burn down the ideas of gender inequality that’s rooted in someone’s head.
