Huge kudos to Bobbi Brown Cosmetics for the latest Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women and Girls, which kicks off today, Women's International Day. Take two minutes to watch trailer of the Girls Rising movie to be totally in awe of nine fearless girls who broke their barriers to get an education. AND, buy the Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Mascara because all $25 goes to the Girls Rising Fund and similar girl-empowerment organizations.
