So according to Wookieepedia, Padmé and Anakin got married using the pseudonyms Veré and Set.

Set is an ancient Egyptian god associated with the desert, chaos, and war.

Veré recalls the Latin vere, meaning truly, and other related words in various Romance languages having to do with truth - not just in the factual sense of what is real, but in the moral sense of what is right as well.

Truth and Chaos getting married. Yeah, that sounds about right.

And pretty much you attach your phone to the stick and you can take pictures using the little clicker thing. So instead of taking photos like this:

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.
