pieraluisa Earlier this year I started #R29Academy, a learning series for @refinery29 employees including talks from inspiring people across industries. We've had creative directors, entrepreneurs, Arianna Huffington, and today I had the pleasure of interviewing #RosieRios the US Treasurer responsible for the push for parity and getting women on our paper currency. Was so in awe of her...one of 9 children born to a single mother (all of whom went to college), she's worked since she was 14, managed billions of dollars, and is a dedicated feminist devoted to re-writing history and giving visibility to the women who have shaped America. Her passion was contagious as she challenged us to drive action as we move towards 2020, the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote. PS her signature is on our money. @glowlala #pledgeforparity 17h

pieraluisa Will you go to prom with me? This Weds, May 25th, one of my favorite non profits #LowerEastSideGirlsClub is having their annual spring benefit and the theme is a disco-prom without the teenage drama. Decked out by @confettisystem and the @girlsclubny girls themselves, the party will have tons of fun interactive activities that bring their services teaching young girls to life. Lets bring back our metallic, poufy dresses and permed hair for a night of dancing and celebrating the work of @girlsclubny / Link in bio for tickets! #springflingnyc #girlsclubny @confettisystem 3d

pieraluisa From the frontlines of the war on women today: In a clearly unconstitutional move Oklahoma state legislature passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony. As in: doctors who are just doing their jobs by performing the safe, legal procedure could face up to three years in prison. The AP reports that “the bill also would restrict any physician who performs an abortion from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine in Oklahoma.” The only exception to the legislation is if the mother’s life is at risk. Let's stand together for women's rights. Via @sarahsophief #VotingMatters #reproductivejustice art: @jaguarojaguaro 1w
  •   sdgonzalez4 I saw that this morning on the refinery 29 app! I could not believe that! How can this be going on in today's world when we have advanced in so many other ways! I agree there must be rules as to when you can terminate and when it's too late, but the woman should still have that choice and it should be no one else's choice but HERs, for HER body! 7d
  •   vandamar It blows my mind that women still have to fight so hard for basic human rights. 🙁 7d
  •   deborahpg Wait! How can they stand against federal law? Good for you to draw attention to this absurd roll back of our essential rights to control our own bodies 6d

pieraluisa "I have no problem standing up for myself. Maybe I got it from growing up in Texas, but I never took shit from anybody. Now I know how to do it without pushing people away. You just don’t approach things with a Fuck You mentality. Instead it’s: This is the way I’m perceiving things. There’s nothing wrong with my beliefs or feelings. So let’s agree to disagree, or let’s just disagree." -Demi Lovato @ddlovato is our latest @refinery29 #UnCovered star / Love a woman with the integrity to stay true to herself and stand up for what she believes in. #confident @nagi_sakai 1w

pieraluisa Might run away and join the circus after tonight's @nofit_state_circus performance. Mesmerizing and very transporting (felt like I was in a magical, hedonistic other era)...if you're in NYC I definitely recommend!! 🏻 2w
