Fare il medico… c’è chi dice che è una vocazione e lo è sicuramente, ma è altrettanto certo che al giorno d’oggi è una sfida, soprattutto in contesti come la guardia medica! È una sfida, perché non è possibile che un medico nell’esercizio delle proprie funzioni venga aggredito

Bihar, Gaya distt. Rita Devi, 45 yr woman, attacked by a mob of around 200 and burnt to death on suspicion of #witchcraft. If RSS-BJP, Hindutva groups want India to progress and be Vishwaguru, shoudn't they focus on getting rid of these superstitions? All they do is Hindu-Muslim.
Attacks, mostly on women or widows, on suspicion of witchcraft are sometimes reported from remote regions of the Indian states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa and Assam, despite an act which bans witch hunts. NCRB estimates around 2,100 such murders between 2001 and 2012.
Instead of running daily trends attacking this and that business knowledge center teachers on fake Hindu-Muslim issues the likes of @Sadhvi_prachi should focus her energy on raising awareness about #witchcraft #honourkilling #childtrafficking etc. I think right wing will agree.

🔶 On utilise ce terme pour désigner du harcèlement psychologique ayant recours au mensonge, au déni, à l'omission sélective ou à la déformation de faits dans le but de tirer profit de l'anxiété et de la confusion ainsi générées

🔶 Le gaslighting désigne une forme d'abus mental dans lequel un individu manipule la réalité pour faire douter sa victime de ses perceptions et de sa santé mentale. C'est une façon de priver la victime de gaslighting de libre-arbitre.

🔶 L'essayiste Patricia Evans a listé 7 "signes d'avertissement" du gaslighting
•Dissimuler des infos à la victime

@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.

#NZ This is a long thread on the issue of harassment & threats made against #WomenInLeadership, primarily #WomenInPolitics.

⬇️ Reviews incidents over time, highlights the danger & escalation of #misogyny & the real life consequences on the personal & our democratic institutions.
This thread is being woven, the week Michael Cruickshank was sentenced to jail in #NZ for threatening to blow our #WomanPrimeMinister’s head off & to “..wipe you off this f---planet”- Also arrested this week Richard Sivell who has allegedly been posting threatening messages.
Here you can take a look at #OnlineAbuse ~ ⬇️ is a really useful article by @shesource & @WMCLive that names online hostile behaviour, how it is that #Women are targeted, & explains why “online harassment exists on a continuum with offline violence”…

What do economists want to see in #Budget2022?

We need investment in the economy's "real" productive capacity.

That means R&D, investment in the health & care workforce, housing, digital connectivity, dismantling barriers to women's economic inclusion

#ausecon #auspol
… This requires a #Budget2022 with long-term vision and policy innovation, not just short-term cost relief.

Current inflationary pressures mean that splashing cash could actually make things worse, unless we also focus on the "supply side" of the economy.
The Budget is also a statement of a country's values and priorities

Expect a sizeable increase in defence spending to "keep Australians safe"

Meanwhile Australian women continue to be murdered by a current or former partner at a rate of one woman per week (Source: @OurWatchAus)

This #InternationalWomensDay2022 let’s revisit the progressive judgments of the Indian Courts reaffirming the rights of the women and providing them better protection of the law.

#ICLU celebrates 21 judgments of the #SupremeCourt on this #WomensDay
1. The Apex Court providing for detailed guidelines for safety of women at workplace in Vishakha & Ors. v. State of Rajasthan & Ors. (1997) directed employers to provide a mechanism for redressal of grievances of employees. (1/2)
These guidelines were eventually formalised as legislation with the passing of the Sexual Harrasment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013. (2/2)

The years 1955 and 1956. Women were not spared by the Indian state in subjugating the Nagas to accept the Indian union. This thread is gruesome but read it until the end for a glimpse of what the Nagas have endured #RepealAFSPA #ViolenceAgainstWomen
29 July 1956, Atophumi village, 60km from Mokokchung
"A mother who failed to escape eas killed and her one month old child was placed on her bosom to suck the dead mother's milk. One pregnant woman was beaten and kicked to death." #RepealAFSPA
"In the month of June 1956, 600 Indian Army went to burn Mangmetong village, 365 houses, and burnt down the whole village. Two girls age 17 and 19 years were caught and committed rape by the whole company." #RepealAFSPA

Today the UN marks International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Not all men practice violence against women but all women live with the threat of male violence every single day. All over the Earth.

We must start from the home if we are to fight discrimination and injustice against women.

If a woman cannot be safe in her own house then she cannot be expected to feel safe anywhere.

#NoToDomesticViolence #ViolenceAgainstWomen
Domestic violence causes far more pain than the visible marks of bruises and scars.

Sadly, there's been an awful silence in male culture about #ViolenceAgainstWomen, we need to break the silence and we need more men to do that.

ரொம்பவே முக்கியமா ரொம்ப நாள் பேசனும்னு வைச்சுருந்த ஒரு விஷயம். 1994 வளர் இளம்பருவத்தினரின் தேவை என்ன அப்படிங்குறத கருத்தில் கொண்டு உருவாக்கப்பட்ட ஒரு விஷயம் தான் பாலியல் கல்வி. இப்ப வரை இது ஏன் தேவை னு சரியா புரியாதவங்கதான் பலர்.
பாலியல் கல்வி குறித்த பர்ஸ்ட் மித் இது பாலுணர்வை தூண்டும். அட பிக்காலிப்பயலுவலா இதன் முக்கிய நோக்கமே பாலுணர்வை நெறிப்படுத்துவது மட்டும்தான்.
மித்2: நம் கலாச்சாரத்துக்கும் பன்பாட்டிற்கும் எதிரானது. ரியாலிட்டி:விழுமியங்களை கற்பித்து உணர்வுகளை வலுப்படுத்தும்.
மித்3: உடலுறவு செய்வது
குறித்து கற்பிக்கப்படும்.
ரியாலிட்டி: provides age and developmental appropriate
information and skills to help young people delay
sexual initiation and to protect themselves when
they do become sexually active
இப்படி நிறைய தவறான மித்களை உடைக்கனும் முதல்ல

Powerful speech from the Duchess of Cornwall tonight on the epidemic of violence against women.
Camilla speaks how “one women is killed by a man every three days. Sarah Everard, Sabina Nessa, Wenjing Lin, Geetika Goyal and Bennylyn Burke are names which…must never be forgotten.”
Camilla also said spoke about the shocking rape figures: 144,000 women were victims of rape or attempted rape … This equates to roughly 16 of the most serious sexual offences every hour. Sixteen every hour.”
Camilla also said survivors of violence and sex assaults need support to feel shameless.
She said “rapists are not born, they are constructed. And it takes an entire community…to dismantle the lies, words & actions that foster a culture in which sexual assault is seen as normal”

Not sure who needs to hear this, but:
On July 11 #SanDiego will host a #Pride march and
the theme is #Resiliency

Related: I've learned a person who harassed/threatened me in 2019- until a court issued a restraining order against him- will likely be part of this event.

It's "likely" because he's been hired by an LGBTQ advocacy organization

Their Exec Director was not aware he's had 3 restraining orders in the last 15 yrs: One for harassment, two for #domesticviolence

I often relive this abuse & harassment since it happened in my home

I had wanted to attend the march w/friends- But the more I thought of being in public, surrounded by others who have been traumatized in recent years, the less appealing it became.

As a survivor: It's hard feel safe or be "resilient" when an abuser is marching with me.

I was almost #attacked tonight. I was walking w/my friend back to her home tonight. We had encountered a young woman intoxicated &were trying to get her to the YWCA. 3 men ran out and up a small hill around the #library They had masks covering their faces and hoodies over hair
I watched them get closer as my friend stayed with this young intoxicated girl. Every step, they became faster. As they started literally charging across #stafforddrive I turned, faced them and yelled at them to #stop My friend was on the phone w/help & I kept #yelling
They retreated into the bus shelter outside the library. We Beelined to the YWCA
You know why they stopped? I looked one of them right in the eyes and I saw the small amount of skin visible. This man is #Caucasian & I don’t think they were expecting me or my friend to be #white

1/. At a time when many countries are starting to try & find ways of combating violence against women, #Turkey has just pulled out of #IstanbulConvention

This is the Convention on violence against women

Ironic that it is named after the city in #Turkey.…
2/. #Turkey’s withdrawal from the #IstanbulConvention is deeply worrying, coming at time when #COVID19 measures/lockdowns have led to a spike in reports of violence

Many women & girls trapped at home with their abusers or unable to easily access safety #VAWG #istanbulsoezlesmesi
3/ Turkey’s withdrawal from the #IstanbulConvention will have disastrous consequences for millions of women & girls & to organizations providing vital support to survivors of sexual assault & domestic violence

#Turkey should reconsider this awful decision…

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.

As the discussions about defunding and abolishing the U.S. police forces gain greater recognition, some people continue to ask "Who will protect you from sexual violence?" A thread #DefundThePolice #WeKeepUsSafe @FirecrackerFdn
For many #survivors, going to the #police is yet another #trauma. Cops are meant to represent and respect “The Law,” not the victim/survivor. #DefundThePolice #WeKeepUSSafe @FirecrackerFdn
When feminists (often #whitefeminists) uphold the idea that the policing and #prison system are the best way to protect people from sexual violence, they are practicing what is called #CarceralFeminism #DefundThePolice #WeKeepUSSafe @FirecrackerFdn
