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.…
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.

“Gibela has discussed the importance of responding to the specific needs of women and girls at work, in our communities and in society at large – and the dire circumstances many women and girls find themselves in at the hands of fellow human beings and men, in particular.

@GEJFoundation @OSIWA1 @Yoonu117 @NDI @womenfundng @oluremisonaiya Yes, there is an hope that female candidates will be elected as a presidents in the nearest future. The United State is a good example. Nigerian system will get there soon.
@GEJFoundation @OSIWA1 @Yoonu117 @NDI @womenfundng @oluremisonaiya The increase in the number of women who show interest and contest elections on the platforms of newer political parties is an indication of hope.
@GEJFoundation @OSIWA1 @Yoonu117 @NDI @womenfundng @oluremisonaiya Nigerian women are resilient and have the necessary qualifications to attain greater heights. The enabling environment and equal playing field is the responsibility of all.

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
@MyriaVass "We shouldn't touch the Palermo Protocol nor the @coe Convention. In fact, we need correct implementation of Directives in Europe. We need to complement the current EU framework and criminalise the demand for sexual exploitation #EndDemand, as soon as possible.

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.

Today i want to share my story of humiliation and verbal abuse i received from @BitiTendai. Say no to assault (physical and verbal) say no to gender based violence! #GBVmustfall

@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

5 years ago today I was walking down a street @uniofstandrews and answered my phone. A lady told me that my rape trial was acquitted with a not proven verdict. She reassured me "it means the jury believed you but they didn't have enough to send Stephen Coxen to prison". I froze.
I had spent the last two years convincing myself that this pain was for a reason, that I would see justice. Now I blamed myself, believing that I had failed society as I hadn’t been able to protect other women from his violence.
The nights immediately after I was raped were lonely, but this was nothing in comparison to the isolation I felt when my case was over, the very point when everyone else expected me to be okay. As my friends said in court, I was a shadow of my former self.

MWCD Report (2019-20) states that out of 728 One Stop Centres, only 595 are currently operational.
It is the State's responsibility to protect and promote our Human Rights and Dignity!

@PriyankaSamy @DalitWomenRise @ifwedonotrise
Union Budget 2020-21 allocates a mere 0.8% (Rs.7986.34Cr.) for Dalit women and 0.34% (Rs. 3174.91Cr.) for Adivasi women from the total eligible Centrally Sponsored Schemes and Central Sector Schemes! Budget Justice??
#16Days #prajnya16days
@PriyankaSamy @ncdhr @dalitwomenrise
Almost 46,000 crimes were registered against Dalits in 2019 but the conviction rates are only 28%. Sexual violence on Dalit women reveals a pattern of impunity enjoyed by dominant caste State & nonstate perpetrators.

#16DaysOfActivism - Day 2: Learning small things to act against #GBV #SGBV
#16Days #OrangeTheWorld
1. Learn commonly used terms that any gender equality activist should have in their vocabulary toolkit.
For #16Days and beyond! #OrangeTheWorld @UN_Women @16DaysCampaign
2. Let’s flip the narrative that places blame on victims and use the power of language in service of survivors, not perpetrators.
And call out journals, publications, reports, etc. doing otherwise.

It is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and the start of #16DaysOfActivism.

Intimate partner terrorism & domestic abuse kills and hurts millions. Where is the VACCINE against THAT global epidemic?


🎥 @rerutled
- not everyone can call the police.
- not everyone wants to call the police.
- police don’t protect everyone: ask Indigenous women, Black women, women of colour, marginalized women, sex workers, etc
- I don’t want to be protected. I want to be free of violence #16Days

Did you know that Iranian women have never seen a day without violence?
Do you know what is the first wish of an Iranian woman?
#ViolenceAgainstWomen will be finished.
Violence Against Women in Iran state-sponsored and institutionalized
#OrangeTheWorld #16Days
Iranian protesters killed, but no one understood what he did to the women prisoners imprisoned by the Iranian regime in prisons?
These women could never tell us their stories
Listen to Samira, she is 1 of protesters.
#ViolenceAgainstWomen #OrangeTheWorld #16Days @USAdarFarsi
I thought for hours to write this tweet, but I could not write anything
But I ask you to listen to voice of Leila, 1 of Iranian protesters, & then swear to be voice of each of them in every corner of world & to condemn Iranian regime wherever you can.

Anne-Marie Edward

Loved skiing so much that she was buried in her École polytechnique ski team jacket. After her murder, her teammates wore patches with her initials on their uniforms.

Barbara Kluczik-Widajewicz

Had fled (communist) Poland with her husband 2 years earlier. They were together when she was murdered. Her husband later said they had come to Canada because they believed it was the safest place.

Times up @UniStrathclyde.
Today with @StrathUnion we launch our Reportathon campaign.
We want a visible, accessible, closely monitored Report & Support tool we can trust.
We will show you how far from "rare" incidents are.
Have you been dissuaded from reporting an incident?
Have you felt reporting procedures were buried online?
Have you had people minimise your experience?
Are you hesitant to report your experience to a system you don't trust?
If you have reported, do you know:
Where your data goes?
Who knows about it?
If it gets recorded/counted?
Are departments informed if there are common names repeatedly reported?

“It is imperative that we all take action against violence and discrimination that continue to affect women and girls” - @Scanlon_Leslie at 25th anniversary of the founding of @cpkorgpl , an amazing NGO working to #EndViolenceAgainstWomen #Thread
