Love Your Body NOW.

Hello to all of you Malia Mills Mavens!
I have just learned that there is a LOVE YOUR BODY DAY!
There is an actual celebratory day devoted to women loving their bodies -- October 15th, 2008!
I found this out at the NOW Foundation website

You can even send an e-card to a pal to remind her how beautiful she is at this very moment. Today. Just as she is.

Spread the word Gals!

vote! vote! vote!

Greetings from Malia Mills, partner/sister of Carol Mills, owners of Malia Mills Swimwear!

2008 is going to be an incredible year for women! Don't forget to exercise your hard earned right to vote!

In 1848 the first women's rights convention called for the equal treatment of men and women under the law, as well as voting rights for women. It took the suffragettes 45 years of hard work, determination, passion and sheer will until finally, Colorado became the first state to adopt an amendment granting women the right to vote! It wasn't until 1920, an additional 27 years! until the 19th amendment was made to the constitution granting women the right to vote.

So be sure to vote! It is a celebration of the women who spent their lives -- 72 years! working to give all of us an invaluable opportunity. Do it for you, for your daughters, for your sisters, nieces, cousins and aunts, for your mother, for your friends, for your mentors, for all of the women in your life. Do it for your grandmother or great grandmother who may not have had the privilege! Vote! Vote! Vote!

malia mills maven of the month

To celebrate what is sure to be an outstanding year we are opening up our maven of the month awards! we didn't quite get it together to give out the award every month in 2007 but we're going to give it our best shot this year. 2007 winners included hannah levinson, megan reback and elan stahl, the gals who dared to say the word vagina at their LI highschool. Nicole (one of our fearless leaders) nominated her mentor, Tracyann Williams,"the gal who dared to teach me all about feminism", another winner. So if you know a gal or you read about a gal or you learn about a gal who you'd like to celebrate just blog about her. Tell us a bit about her and why she inspires you. Every month we'll take the nominees from our blog and the nominees from everyone at malia mills and we'll shake them up and pull out a winner! Every Malia Mills Maven of the Month will receive a gift certificate for a celebratory swimsuit of her choice. A freebie for a fabulous gal! Right on.
