What does gender equality have to do with peace-building? a brief thread:
#UNSCR1325 calls for the inclusion of women and girls in peace-building. it recognizes that they 1) "are differentially impacted by conflict and war," and 2) play a critical (but undervalued) role in development efforts.

but not all #feminist models are created equal. different theories assert different assumptions about the intersection between gender equality, conflict, and peace-building. #GenderEquality #SDGs #PeaceBuilding

@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut "Offered" has a ring of solicitation in it. According to both @LucyFlores & numerous news footages of #Biden's #UnwantedTouching, he NEVER solicited consent, but took a #privilege that was not his to take. #OurBodiesOurHomes #OnlyYesMeansYes
@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut 2/ And the audacity of of saying "And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.
The 1st part, using his own assessment to measure others' feelings wo their input-cute!
@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut 3/ I wonder, if @pewresearch or some other researchers (FYI, @ConversationEDU) did a #survey of accused/convicted #sexualharassment & #sexualassault predators, how many will offer that exact defense?
2nd part, #victimblaming. No, @JoeBiden, if u actually believed in...

1) National broadcaster @yleuutiset asked Finnish party heads about their security policy views (internal and external) - elections on April 14th - some thoughts on it:

Bottom line: Consensus is pretty broad on many issues.
2) there is some spread on whether current conscript/national service system should be changed. Interestingly some parties that frequently speak of #genderequality don't think it applies here. See potential opening for 'call up' for everyone but service still voluntary for women.
3) All parties oppose idea of easing sanctions placed on #Russia, due to ongoing war in #Ukraine.

--> This view will not change (even if individual parliamentarians sometimes flirt with the idea), it is too central to the position #Finland has staked out in EU.

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily
