#SupremeCourt will shortly continue the final hearing in a plea by a woman district judge who resigned from service after alleging sexual harassment by a High Court judge.

A Bench of Justices Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai had heard arguments on the reinstatement of the woman Additional District Judge (ADJ) last Thursday. To continue today 👇🏼

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta: at the outset, I must point out- I have not recieved any instructions from the High Court. The submissions which I make are my submissions which I feel to be duty bound.

Hi #fundraisingtwitter. Some people seem confused as to why I, and may others, consider Mr. Ahern's comments and sessions offensive. I've had some genuine questions, so let me do my best to explain here.
Last month a conference called "Inspire Webinar Series" came out featuring a series of fundraising "legends". @_David_Lacey rightfully pointed out that 19 of the 22 panelists were white men. It was called out on Twitter and LinkedIn for being insulting.
Some speakers like @ToastFundraiser upon learning this stepped down. Instead of following suit, Tom Ahern wrote this post that included the words "In half a decade or less, the same worth of "listening-to" speakers won't be male or white." He also told everyone "F U" at the end

1/ Thread on the endemic nature of sexual assault & harassment in our society.

It's taken me a few days to muster the courage to share my personal experiences, but I feel strongly that women's voices need too be heard.

The full article is here:…
2/ When I was 14, I was attacked by a naked man on a beach in Norfolk. I had gone to the beach alone to do some sketching. He chased me down, threw me around & groped me. As I ran away he stood wanking himself, screaming “Fuck me, Bitch!”.
3/ When I was campaigning, an older male activist developed an obsession with me. At events he would greet me by grabbing both my arms & kissing me on the lips. He would follow me around everywhere and try to stand or sit as close to me as possible. He put his hands on my legs...

#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.

"We’ve heard of gaps in pay, lack of promotion, stolen ideas, retaliation for challenging male colleagues, sexualization of learning materials, sexual assault — the list goes on. A common thread is fear of retaliation...#sexual"… via @statnews
#sexualharassment & #genderbias are real and pervasive in medicine

Even among organizations that claim to be committed to change.…
What is the solution?

1. Clear standards
2. Clear reporting mechanisms
3. Independent data collection & publication
4. Doing the work to address toxic leadership & culture. It isn't easy but without concerted effort, there will be no change.

Hey @diggersndealers -

The Exchange Hotel is using your name in its porn-themed sexual entertainment promo.

Do you endorse this?

#sexism #genderequality #sexualharassment #diggersndealers
Reflecting on prevailing #sexism and gender inequality in the resources sector at #diggersndealers forum, @FortescueNews FMG CFO Elizabeth Gaines spoke out against having work gatherings at skimpy bars:

‘I don't know of many women who want to walk into that environment.’
Gaines said

‘You’ve got to have venues that are far more appropriate ... and actually reflective of society as a whole. Not #objectification of one part of society, and the other part of society looking on.’

Hey Steve McCann @LendleaseGroup,

You’re a @malechampions.

Have you read this great report on disrupting #sexualharassment in the workplace?
Why is @LendleaseGroup fuelling sexism + aiding workplace #sexualharassment by allowing sex shop #HoneyBirdette’s porn-themed window displays in its shopping centres?

Images like this one-a headless women in transparent underwear which reveal bare genitals.

.@LendleaseGroup is even inviting kids to take part in augmented reality fun -right outside the sex shop & its BDSM/orgy themed window displays.

How does this fit in with your @malechampions goals to ensure your workplaces are ‘safe, respectful & inclusive’ Steve? #honeybirdette

【日英対訳】宇佐崎しろ氏「アクタージュ読者の皆様へ」Translation of Usazaki Shiro's statement: "To the readers of #ActAge,"|2020.8.24| @tkatsumi06j #note… Now with bilingual introduction to add some context. #MeToo #WeToo #GropingIsSexualAssault
In translating this statement I took special care in the use of terminology that relate to sexual violence. As a professional translator and #HeForShe activist, I was particularly alarmed by the amateur translation of "強制わいせつ" as 'sexual harassment'. This is outright wrong.
By law, the definition of "強制わいせつ" is Forcible Indecency which is forcible enactment of sexually indecent acts against a person who is not under the age of 13. This is equivalent to sexual assault but NOT sexual harassment.

Don’t know what “men” (yeah, in quotes bc it’s laughable) think, but the vast majority of women don’t want to be honked at by randos. We don’t find it cute, flattering, or fun. It’s mostly annoying af and sometimes scary.
Silver lining? After 30 years of dealing with your bs entitlement to my existence, at least I’m not dealing with it as a 10yr old anymore... fuck ya’ll. P.S. if you’re thinking #notallmen, you’re probably sexually harassing someone or thinking of calling me a fat bitch. #tiredass
I think I was probably 7 or 8 when I first noticed men (20-70 years old) thinking it was ok to invade my space with the drive by kiss, tongue flick, catcall, letting me know the firmness of their dicks, hugs that lasted to long, hands on my knee, or asking for my personal info.
