Workshop begins on "Backing #Women and #Girls to Lead in #SustainableAgriculture" #ClimateWeekNYC
There were people, particularly women and girls, on this land for 1000s of years. Some are still here, and we thank them for the caring of the land that they have done.
We are glad to have participants from @CAREGlobal, @nature_org, @girlscouts, US State Dept office of Global Food Security, and so many from around the world working on #UNSDGs

The sound of #women determined to defend our hard won sex-based rights must never be underestimated.

The room is packed, the noise is deafening.

The Women's Liberation Movement is very much alive!

Meghan Murphy states 'I have an overzealous commitment to authenticity'

'Women and Girls are being told the can't have boundaries'

#WPUKLondon
'Feminists insist on the 'reactionary' category of #Woman'

'An analysis of power; who holds it, how and why is lacking'

'United we stand, divided we fall'

'We still need single-sex spaces and the right to self-organise'

#Musings

She had just gotten home after a long day at the office, her mind was in a clutter, her relationship had just ended because she refused to have #sex before marriage.

She could feel her chest tighten everytime she thought about him.

She still loved him deeply.

⏭️
As she stepped into her apartment, #phcn struck, the heat built up so fast she dove into the bathroom, relaxing only when the cold shower drenched her.

She could hear her phone ringing but she wasn't about to interrupt the only peaceful moment she had experienced today.

⏭️
When she was done, she wiped herself dry, picked up her phone & saw it was a missed call from him, her heart lurched again, her mouth went dry, her whole body screamed in desperate need of his company, why was this no-sex thing such an issue, she mulled.

Should she give in?

So the @cpsuk are allowing teen girls & women to be sexually tortured on film. I have evidenced this horror on my blog. Proving much is non-consensual/ DV victims/performers who suffer mental health issues/physical harm to breasts /anus/genitalia etc bbc.co.uk/news/technolog… #VAWG
Also, a significant audience of online violent pornography are children and teenagers. #Pornhub hosts thousands of sexually violent videos that have millions of views. Many of these videos are 'home-made' and single males upload their own sexual offences against girls & women

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

In 2015, Olivia Onyemaobi raised a campaign against sexual abuse. She found out that some girls get abused by men who offer to help them get sanitary pads. To solve the problem, she started @PadupC
In Nigeria, some girls sometimes stay out of school during their menstrual cycle because they can’t afford sanitary pads. While some others use tissue, dry grasses, leaves and rags during their menstrual cycle. Just because they can not afford sanitary pads. #Thread
#VUNBlog
Some men cash in on this, by abusing young girls sexually just to provide them sanitary pads. @PadupC makes affordable, washable and reusable sanitary pads. Pad-Up menstrual kits are super thin with high absorption rate. #VUNBlog #VictorUgooNjokuBlog #womenshealth #lifestyle

So, the other thread I was talking about at the beginning of the week and, sadly not about Vagrant Story or Farscape.

One of the questions I see pop-up again and again is why do TE*Fs (note the wildcard placement, there's nothing radical about these #Fuckwits) have such...

hatred for #trans #people?

Well, if we step back a little and change how we look at the patterns of behaviour, and look at those behaviours in a different paradigm, one more associated with personal relationships, TE*F behaviour and attitudes have a depressingly familiar...

So.

Time for something a little different, and an idea I’ve been toying with—a look at how #transphobes try to frame their narrative within a claim that they are only “concerned” about trans people existing.

I think it’s safe to say that every trans person in the...

1/n
community who isn’t a #transphobic arserag can now spot whenever the usual #hate groups and individuals deploy their dog-whistles to denigrate trans people, especially trans women, but it is all too easy to forget that for the average cis person with no experience of...

2/n
this the comments and phrases that #transphobes come out with can come across as bizarre, or non-sequiturs, or even occasionally even reasonable. That person, because they have no experience of this, doesn’t see those comments as the attacks they are, and so can’t...

Wow. I'm blown away by the response! I want to echo the point that has been made about how long somebody has played being irrelevant, whether its 20 years, 10 years, or 5 months. I've played with many women and girls over the years and have loved having them at my table!
#playon
I really don't understand the push back. I don't understand the comments I see about girls not being "real nerds" or only playing bc their boyfriend plays or they want cosplay likes or whatever. It's all nonsense. Is it so hard to believe that girls play because they WANT to? smh

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

For #IWD2018 a look at why Prime Minister Modi's #BetiBachaoBetiPadhao (Educate girls to Save them) program will not stop India's mass #femicide until these issues are addressed. Link & THREAD.
opendemocracy.net/5050/rita-bane…
1/ Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padao’ (Save the Girl, Educate the Girl) programme, launched in January 2015, was the first time since India's independence in 1947 that the Indian government had raised the issue of female genocide in a public campaign.
2/ British census data in the 18th century had attributed India’s skewed #sexratio to female #infanticide and other forms of #femicide, such as sati, but after independence subsequent governments remained bizarrely indifferent to the issue even as it reached epidemic proportions.
