The focus of #16DaysofActivism2021 to End Gender-Based Violence is femicide: the killing of a woman or a girl by a man because of her gender, sometimes also used to refer to the epidemic of women killed by men in intimate settings 16dayscampaign.org/wp-content/upl… feministgiant.com/p/essay-the-te…
If terrorism means politically-motivated violence intended to scare us into changing the way we behave, then surely femicide is terrorism. Patriarchy is the ideology; cis men are the terrorists.

#16Days
Unless we impose on societal consciousness just how quotidian violence against women is and how it is ordinary men who commit it, it will continue to benefit ordinary men. It does.

Say it. Violence against women is everyday; ordinary men commit it.

They said she couldn’t fly in a jet because her "female parts would be damaged."

“It was quite a thrill breaking the sound barrier at 100 feet...”
They said she couldn't complete the same basic training. They said she couldn’t work on the operations staff. They said she couldn't work in Intelligence. They said she couldn’t work overseas. They said many things.

She proved them wrong.

WHO & @FIFAcom are teaming up for the #SafeHome campaign to raise awareness about domestic violence & support those at risk, during the #16Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.

👉 bit.ly/3CSmcSY
Across their lifetime, 1⃣ in 3⃣ 🙎‍♀️ aged 15 & over, ~736 million, are subjected to physical &/or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence from a non-partner - a number that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade.

#SafeHome

👉bit.ly/3CSmcSY
If you are experiencing violence & need to leave in a hurry:
🏘️ Identify a friend, neighbour, relative or #SafeHome you can go to
🔀 Plan how to get there
🎒 Keep ready essential personal items to take with you

Lockdown reimposed in England. People can leave home "to escape domestic abuse.”
-What fucking world is this where men still beat & kill us even during pandemic?
-How long must we wait until men stop beating & murdering us,even under lockdown?
🎥 @rerutled
I made the above in May. Earlier during the pandemic, isolation and lockdown conditions exacerbated barriers to escape for victims of domestic violence in the UK and many other countries. google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.…
Where’s the vaccine vs patriarchy? Unsurprising spike in intimate partner terrorism during lockdowns is the other global pandemic many are happy to ignore.

Women, children, queer people are being terrorized at home. Home is where the hurt is.

As a migrant woman survivor of human trafficking, @ToMalaika calls for holistic services and survivor-based approaches when #AssistingTraffickedWomen. "We cannot correctly assist trafficked women if we don't put survivors at the center of integration and assistance services". Image

1/5 Whether it’s a sexualized comment, a grope, or an intimidating physical gesture meant to put you “in your place”, you can’t even process what’s occurring the first time it happens to you. #16Days
2/5 You’re in a toxic stew of humiliation, fear, shock and the desire to get away. And maybe you say something, or push them away, or just walk away, or pretend to laugh it off. But however you react, you now understand how vulnerable you are.
3/5 You wake up with that understanding, and you carry it with you all day. That’s regardless of your job, gender, rank, relationship status, ethnicity, sexuality, what you’re wearing, or how physically strong you are. The fear is always there.

@BitiTendai is supposedly a national leader as VP of MDCA, a Christian and lawyer but the way he behaved is NOT acceptable.
He shouted at me, called me “stupid very stupid” several time’s and made me feel intimidated, belittled and publicly humiliated.
@BitiTendai violated my rights as a woman. He violently pointed his fingers at my face and threatened me. To put this into context neither me nor my company had any prior dealings with this man, we have never spoken to him and yet his behavior was irrational, hysterical...

1/ These numbers don’t lie; social media platforms are responsible for perpetuating online harm against women. If we’re to address violence against women in 2020, we have to address the violence they face online. #thread #OrangeTheWorld #16Days
2/ According to @wagggsworld and @webfoundation, a shocking half of all young women and girls globally surveyed have experienced online abuse. #OrangeTheWorld #16Days
3/ @PlanCanada's research found that 6 out 10 girls have been harassed or abused online. #OrangeTheWorld #16Days
