Pacu jawi

The pacu jawi is a traditional bull race in Tanah Datar, West Sumatra, Indonesia. In the race, a jockey stands holding on to a pair of loosely-tied bulls while the bulls run across a muddy track in a rice field. Recently, it has become a tourist attraction supported by the government and the subject of multiple award-winning photographs. Dramatic high-speed action, mud splashing, and the distinctive jockey facial expression add to its aesthetic value.

Alice Paul

Alice Stokes Paul was an American suffragist, feminist, and women's rights activist, and one of the main leaders and strategists of the campaign for the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits sex discrimination in the right to vote. Paul, along with Lucy Burns and others, strategized events such as the Woman Suffrage Procession and the Silent Sentinels as part of the successful campaign that resulted in the amendment's passage one hundred years ago today, in 1920.
