Feminist activists are not deterred by the daunting statistics so much as they're fueled by them.
No, Ladies-- You Are Not Responsible For Spelling Out Basic Boundaries In Order To Prevent Being Assaulted
I'm going on my first date (since before the pandemic) this weekend, and I'm having a lot of feelings about it. And not the feelings that I want to have.
Holding Men In Your Life Accountable
The Me Too Movement sparked conversation and debate around sexual assault and harassment against women. Different industries have experienced long overdue changes in their policies and introduced new ones to combat the sexual harassment suffered by many employees. These efforts have been commendable but as we know, there is still a long way to go.
Peace and Planet: Shareholder Advocacy
This past shareholder season, CODEPINK applied several tactics and strategies to advocate for disarmament and environmental justice. We worked with a cross-section of individuals and partners, including socially responsible faith-based organizations, investment management firms, academia, former BlackRock employees, grassroots environmental networks, and anti-war groups. The aim was to push weapon manufacturers, banks, and asset managers to end their financial investments in companies that are accelerating climate change and profiting from weapons of war. The work paid off because, collectively, we creatively got in the face of corporate greed and power, forcing them to recognize us.
Sexism and Misogyny
The door was opened wide in recent years with publicly and openly discussing sexism and misogyny. Let's not let it close and cut off the impact it made in awareness and solutions.
Planned Parenthood Saved My Mom's Life
My mom always had horrible periods. They were always debilitating, horrendous events and she would sometimes have to go home early from work. When it was her time of the month, she always slumped down on the couch after we got home from school and work, pressing a hand against her lower stomach and grimacing every time a spasm ripped through her uterus. She was always glad when she was done with her period for the month but knew the next one was inevitable.
Women empowerment is a process of empowering women. It will raise the status of women who can't depend on another person. Women promote themselves. They can choose their path. It is part of the sustainable development of the country. Any nation achieves gender equality. They should be given education, occupations, rights, and training.
When I think of a builder, I think of someone who possesses a great deal of patience. If you're building a house or any structure, a foundation must be laid. A house or a building can't be built overnight. It takes time, and so does building people takes time and patience. I am a people builder. I am a woman builder. This is my passion. It fulfills me!
What is MeToo? & How did it Start? You must have read about MeToo in TV and NewsPapers, and if you are present on Social Media then you will definitely know about MeToo, which has created panic not only in India but all over the world. But a lot of people know, what MeToo is and It is not known how the beginning took place.
For as long as I can remember the second thoughts in my head became too overwhelming to handle, I'd dig out a piece of my hair and hold onto it for dear life. I would take a strand like it was a flotation device thrown out to me at sea and aggressively start twirling. This type of self soothing was something that happened subconsciously and I never seemed to take notice until a classmate of mine pointed it out to me. We were in seventh grade and she asked me ‘why I twirled my hair like that’. I distinctly remember telling her I do it when I'm thinking. From that point on when she saw me twirling she'd ask me what I was thinking about more as a rhetorical question to point out that I was ridiculously twirling my hair again.
The Dawn of the Feminine Energy
Taking a look back on history and really dive into the nitty gritty, its apparent where we have gone and where we are going as a society, and where we need to head as a unified humanity. Over the last hundred years and the start of humanity that we can consciously understand has been ruled by masculine energy, however by masculine energy that isn’t healed, whole or united.
Men: Stop Telling Me What It’s Like To Be A Woman
Isn’t it amazing how much middle-aged men know about women? They know just how good we’ve got it. How all we care about is babies and men, and if we don’t then we’re hairy-pitted lesbians.
Are Men and Women Really Equal in the Workplace
The mainstream media leads us to believe that after years of oppression women are now equal to men in the workplace, that the gender pay gap is a thing of the past and sexual harassment abolished with the help of the MeToo movement. Yet we still hear the cries from actresses in Hollywood about lesser pay compared to their male co-stars, and we are simply fed excuse after excuse about why this is the case. What we don’t hear is about our day to day hard working women and yet, according to CIPD the gender pay gap in the UK is at 17.3% with sexual harassment in the workplace still at an all-time high.
