It is impossible to reach your own potential if you’re not willing to acknowledge your own accomplishments and strengths. It is impossible to have your voice heard when you’re not willing to speak up above the noise of others. We are commonly taught that in order to be polite, respectful and respected, we need to be modest in our treatments of ourselves and not raise a fuss with others.
This design is all about challenging that ideal. We need to be willing to be bold and see the power in standing up for the things that we believe in. Those who are most respected are those who are willing to speak their mind and make bold choices. There are better ways to show respect to others than standing in silence.

One of the boldest ways to show that a cause has more than a modest following is by protesting. This has been an effective method of inspiring change throughout the world, from Serbia, to Egypt, to the UK and USA. One protest can grow to an entire nation and even influence other countries around the world. Successful protests have helped change laws and government policies, helped to end dangerous regimes and have raised awareness about issues that have failed to receive proper attention in mainstream media on their own.

We are consistently seeing examples of how women are pressured into higher standards of modesty than their male counterparts. One recent example is with many countries being against women appearing topless in public or on social media, while there is no objection to men doing the same. Many activists are looking to Instagram to change their policy, allowing for the female nipple to appear in photography. There are currently more than 4 million posts using the hashtag #freethenipple (NY Times)
Question: What causes have you heard about purely because people were willing to say unpopular or unfiltered things?
