Breaking Gender Stereotypes, One Eagle Huntress at a Time

Eagle huntress fly

Today I was going to highlight the most recent development in the saga of student’s trying to hold universities accountable for their handling of sexual assault cases, as 23 Students File Complaint Against Columbia for Mishandling RapeBut every now and then this topic becomes too sobering to continuously discuss.

Instead, today, I present you with this little gem from the BBC Magazine section: A 13-Year-Old Eagle Huntress in Mongolia. Of course there are so many things that could be controversial about this practice of taking baby Golden Eagles from their nests, raising them around humans, and then releasing them back into the wild. But watching a young girl break into a world dominated by men for centuries is just inspiring . . . And the photos, wow. Enjoy!
