Here’s a wild cliche that is as true today as it was whenever the original speaker (it’s been mis-attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt and Marilyn Monroe, among others) first uttered it: “Well behaved women seldom make history.”
International pop star Rihanna probably hasn’t been counted among the “good girls” of pop music since her album Good Girl Gone Bad took the world by storm and she isn’t about to start now. In an effort to make a difference, Ms. Fenty is currently using her platform to try to influence global policy in the form of funding education initiatives, just the latest in her increasing efforts toward political and social activism.
