Julia Gillard and Rihanna are teaching African kids maths, are totally BFFs

Is this the greatest womance of our generation?

Rihanna and Julia Gillard are two badass SOBs.

The former Aussie Prime Minister proved she wasn’t someone you want to cross when she tore Tony Abbott to shreds in front of the entire world for his rampant misogony:

And Rihanna…well not only does she have the likes of Drake and Leonardo Dicaprio besotted with her, I think the film clip to ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ perfectly captures Ri Ri’s aesthetic.

So it’s pretty amazing that the pollie from South Australia and the pop star from Barbados have teamed up to educate young kids in the African nation of Malawi.

Gillard (as part of her Global Partnership for Education) and Rihanna’s (as part of her Clara Lionel Foundation) headed to the impoverished nation to “get a sense of the dimensions of change and what more needs to be done,” the Aussie said.

Both are dedicated in their fight to improve third-world education standards.

My time in Malawi was so inspiring! Working with my @ClaraLionelFdn to improve the lives of students globally, alongside @GPforEducation… watch the clip on my YouTube —> link in bio.
