The sweet smell of NO

NO is a very empowering word.

You've probably noticed that the phrase 'rape culture' is appearing in the media more and more lately.  I'm not sure why that is, exactly.  It seems like the problem has always been there - the problem being society's inability to respect an individual's right to bodily autonomy - but we're only just starting to really point out the issues while we try to fight them.

Blogger Eve Vawter, an associate editor of the website Mommyish, takes this matter very seriously.  In recognition of the efforts she and others have made to combat rape culture in our society, the cosmetics company A Beautiful Life has developed NO, a stirring fragrance which they describe as "utterly feminine and utterly strong."

The fragrance is available exclusively through ABL's website and can be purchased only in limited quantities. It's $52 a pop, but here's why - $10 for every bottle they sell is donated to an organization which assists victims of rape and sexual abuse.  Their first and current donation recipient is the excellent RAINN, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network.

(Enter the promo code NO at checkout, and you'll receive 20% off your purchase price - but the full $10 will still be donated to RAINN.)

Thanks to Eve for sharing this information with her readers, and to everyone who works so hard to make this issue a thing of the past.  Keep fighting the good fight - and smell delicious while you do.
