@dasmaran @CynaraKV @henrikgrunnet1 explain if it is possible to talk about sex and violence through a constructive lens. #Violence #Gendergap #ViolenceAgainstWomen #IJF22
@dasmaran : "It is important to stand up in a conservative country like Indonesia to make women feel empowered and to make them understand that they can navigate the whole world" #empowerment #womenpower
Secondo @CynaraKV i giornalisti non devono più limitarsi a descrivere il problema, ma devono occuparsi e agire personalmente per trovare delle soluzioni.

I used to dream of that fairy tale story, where I get to wear a princess dress n walk down the aisle.

I was sold by that “dream” as a little girl. The notion of as a woman, u need a man to fulfil these “fairy tale” dreams, IMO, is a way to take away a woman’s personal power.
But NOW, time’s changed.

I reclaimed n recreated my identity.

WE as a woman, we can do whatever we want without another person’s approval.
I can wear a wedding dress on just a regular day.
I can wear a princess dress whenever I want just bcos I want to look n feel beautiful
You don’t need anyone to say YES to you.

You don’t need anyone to approve of you.

Because YOU approve YOURSELF.

It is your thought of who YOU that matters.

Revelation of the Hijab #empowerment #feminism

The wives of the Prophet used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet "Let your wives be veiled," but Allah's Apostle did not do so." 1/3
One night Sauda bint Zam'a the wife of the Prophet went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady. 'Umar addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Hijab (the observing of veils) may be revealed. 2/3
So Allah revealed the verses of "Al-Hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes).
Sahih Bukhari 1:4:148 3/3

#CoachingNuggets🧵from reading 3 more chapters of James Flaherty's 🔥book on Coaching:

1. It's easy for a coach to slip into more familiar roles (for me that is #mentor & #educator)-resist that pull.

2. Coaching is "mutual"-it goes both ways (trust, respect & free expression).
3. Trust is a gift that we can give to people. We can make up our mind and do it. It is not something compelled or "earned".

4. A #coach must bring 3 things: openness (no withholding, no judging), listening (beyond auditory) and absolute confidentiality.

🧵2/5 Photo by Simon Berger on Unsplash
5. Practical tips for better coaching relationships:

a) Say what you will do, do it, point out you did it, repeat
b) Share you thinking process and analysis openly
c) Change in response to feedback and speak truth to power

These seem very applicable #Leadership as well!

Chess Grandmaster Anna Muzychuk, on refusing to play in Saudi Arabia.
'In a few days, I'll lose two world titles, one after another. Because I decided not to go to Saudi Arabia. I refuse to play by special rules, wear abaya, be accompanied by a man,

so I can get out of the hotel, so I don't feel like a second-class person.

'I will follow my principles and not compete in the fast chess and blitz world championship where in just 5 days I could have made more money than with dozens of other combined tournaments. —->
—->
This is all very unpleasant, but the sad part is that no one seems to care. Bitter feelings, but I can't go back.'

Ich arbeite 12Jahre in der #Sexindustrie und seit 8Jahren als Aktivistin für die Rechte von #Sexarbeitenden. Ich fühlte mich nie gedemütigt & ausgebeutet, wie jetzt von der Journalistin Nathalie Suthor, die mich für einen Beitrag über #Prostitution für @3Sat angefragt hat. THREAD
Der Beitrag lief gestern bei #Scobel unter der Rubrik Wissenschaftsdoku, was blanker Hohn ist, weil sie eine Aneinanderreihung von Falschaussagen und Behauptungen der #Antiprostitutionslobby ist. Nathalie hat sich verhalten, wie es mir gegenüber kein #Freier jemals gewagt hat:
sie hat mich unter Vorspiegelung falscher Tatsachen angelockt, meine persönlichen körperlichen, geistigen und psychischen Resourcen ausgebeutet, sie ist respektlos mit meiner Lebenszeit umgegangen und hat mich sowie meine Kolleg:innen dann (öffentlich) gedemütigt und denunziert.

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

More on Access Now:

This is an old article, but nonetheless: The New Zealand Prostitute's Collective handed out flyers to Chinese students normalizing prostitution, motivating some to enter the industry, which they are actually not legally allowed on a student visa! Christ... nzherald.co.nz/nz/chinese-stu…
I personally can't really fathom how this pamphlet motivated anyone to enter the sex trade because it is victim-blaming garbage and at the same time skirts around the reality of the industry so much you don't even know what it is really trying to tell you... Image
It must have preyed on the poverty of many students, including exchange students struggling to get a job while studying abroad. This is absolutely a vulnerable situation & I am disgusted the NZPC told them this hot garbage instead of warning them they can't legally do this in NZ!

Brothel advertisment per usual being super honest about what #prostitution really is: Men picking women based on ethnicity, body sizes and parts showcasing exactly why this is not a "sale of services" but systematic objectification and dehumanization all for men's pleasure.
Pimps making it too easy for me to argue my case. I tell people all the time that #prostitution is men renting access to womens bodies based on ethnicity, body sizes and hair colour for one sided pleasure which is objectively misogynistic, racist and rapey and they just admit it!
How utterly pathetic is this brothel ad? "Come here and be a true man! All men do this - dont be shy! Men were born to purchase women - just give into it!" I am disgusted. Women are not prey. Women are not toys. Men are not born abusers. Abusing women is a choice. #TimesUp

Our mission at the Kids Being Kids Foundation is to improve the welfare and #development of the most #vulnerablechildren through play and extra-curricular activities.
A part of this is their physical #environment, which studies have shown profoundly influences developmental outcomes including academic achievement, cognitive, social and emotional #development.
One of the #vulnerable groups we want to support are the #Children of the Wesley School for the #hearingimpaired in Surulere. Their #landscaping is in dire need of a facelift.

Interesting personal story from a woman who quit porn.

“Growing up, I used porn to simply pass the time. In lockdown, I’m having to resist those urges.”

huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/watching…
“Magazines like Cosmopolitan, in their efforts to normalise porn culture, encourage women to take ‘the plunge into porn’ in order to add fun and spice into their love lives. But these magazines aren’t our first encounter with porn:...”
“...like many girls of my generation, the Playboy pencil case accompanied me on my first day of high school, my pre-pubescent self? blissfully unaware of the cute bunny emblem’s significance.”
