One thing I want to say to skeptics of #Cuties who are basing their judgement off how exhibitionist the dance moves are in it, especially in the final competition performance scene, is that while it can be okay to draw boundaries for kids wrt exhibitionism, 1/12
there will be instances where girls cross lines adults don't want them to cross, and there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to rebuke them; it is inappropriate to let boys/men feel entitled to exhibitionist girls'/women's bodies which, like all girls'/women's bodies, 2/12
boys/men do not have dominion over! Dance and sexual relationships have features in common, but not all of the body language that can be seen in both should be seen as explicitly sexual in all instances. While I believe that explicit sexual exhibitionism can occur in dance, 3/12

When @Sal_Robins first started talking to us about all the gender nuts we (her family & friends) took little notice. It all sounded pretty far fetched & beyond ‘our world’ to be honest. After she told me she got suspended from Twitter & shower me what she got suspended for I 1/
starting looking into it for myself. I surfed Youtube & opened this Twitter account & in just a few days I’ve come to realise the World is heading down the toilet and not just for #women. Make no mistake things are moving in a really bad direction for women, but what’s 2/
happening to #children, especially our daughters is terrifying.

After only 2 days on Twitter I just witnessed them #censor my speech. #FreedomOfSpeech isn’t under threat. It’s dead. #WarOnWomen & #SexNotGender won’t get any of us anywhere. This mess has to be cleaned up 3/

Twitter #Censorship just removed my thread on rugby & allowing males to play against women, so let’s try again: On the subject of women’s sports. I started playing rugby at 4. Touch rugby for the little uns. I’m Welsh. Boys (in particular) are raised on it. I played all 1/
through school & then for the British Army. For two years I wore a tracksuit & travelled the Commonwealth playing my favourite game with the best of the regiment against the best of other military regiments. Rule Britannia! And all that. We had a blast. But make no mistake 2/
when men play rugby we play to win. We play to dominate our opponents on the pitch. Every one of us is competitive. Rugby is an aggressive & often violent sport. It’s not called a contact sport because we pat each other on the back & peck kisses on each other “cheek to cheek” 3/

My little sis @Sal_Robins got suspended from Twitter for 7 days yesterday for daring to call someone who IDs as transgender a “trans identified male” & pointing out the danger of appointing this male in a woman’s managerial position on a women’s locked psych ward. Twitter 1/
thinks she’s guilty of hateful conduct. I think she’s guilty of caring too much about the lives of vulnerable women she’s never met & will likely never meet. I think she’s guilty of being a feminist, even though she doesn’t like the label. I think she’s guilty of feeling the 2/
the need to speak out when she sees injustice. I think she’s guilty of being educating in human biology (she didn’t spend 25 years working as an RN without learning a fair bit about the human body, warts & all, & human behaviour.) I think she’s guilty of being wise beyond her 3/

वाचकन्वी (गार्गी)
भारत में पुरुषों के साथ ही भारतीय महिला दार्शनिकों तथा साध्वियों की लम्बी परंपरा रही है। वेदों की ऋचाओं को गढ़ने में भारत की बहुत-सी स्त्रियों का योगदान रहा है उनमें से ही एक है गर्गवंश में वचक्नु नामक महर्षि की पुत्री 'वाचकन्वी गार्गी'।
' एक प्राचीन भारतीय दार्शनिक थी। वेदिक साहित्य में, उन्हें एक महान प्राकृतिक दार्शनिक, वेदों के प्रसिद्ध व्याख्याता, और ब्रह्मा विद्या के ज्ञान के साथ ब्रह्मवादी के नाम से जाना जातीं है। बृहदारण्यक उपनिषद के छठी और आठवीं ब्राह्मण में, उसका नाम प्रमुख है
वृहदारण्यक उपनिषद् में इनका याज्ञवल्क्यजी के साथ बडा ही सुन्दर शास्त्रार्थ आता है। एक बार महाराज जनक ने श्रेष्ठ ब्रह्मज्ञानी की परीक्षा के निमित्त एक सभा की और एक सहस्त्र सवत्सा सुवर्ण की गौएँ बनाकर खडी कर दीं। सबसे कह दिया-जो ब्रह्मज्ञानी हों वे इन्हें सजीव बनाकर ले जायँ।

My tired brain would like to associate '8' with infinity, since that's how long it will take to get any semblance of #diversity across #media.

Here's month eight of tracking the sorry #OpEds of @IndianExpress @htTweets and @the_hindu.

As sad as it is to note the increase in the number of #COVIDー19 positive cases across #India, it's sadder to note the lack of increase in #female #OpEds.

@IndianExpress had 129 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 120.
Of the 129 in IE, #women got 37 bylines, including 10 #jointbylines.

@IndianExpress adopts a convenient trope of getting multiple joint bylines featuring women. At times, as many as 3 women for one small piece.

While this is just sad, it ups the numbers.

Brand Stories- Story No. 2

When Prime Minister Nehru asked JRD Tata to start India's first cosmetic brand 🇮🇳

The story of Lakme 💁‍♀️

( A Thread🧵 )

#IndependenceDayIndia2020 #AatmaNirbharBharat #15August Image
1) It was the early 1950’s. India had just won its freedom and the economy was shaky.

Upper middle class women were spending valuable foreign exchange on western cosmetics which was draining the country's Forex Reserves.

#women #India Image
2) This was disturbing Prime Minister Nehru as the Indian society was in its nascent stage and maintaining Forex was of the utmost importance.

 So, he came up with the idea of starting an Indian cosmetic brand. Image

Hilo de 16 tweets.


Es un nombre poco conocido en la historia de la Cultura y algo más en el Periodismo en España.

Su reconocimiento se debe, principalmente, a su carrera como periodista.
En 1936 fue la primera mujer en dirigir “La Vanguardia” y también trabajó como editora, traductora y adaptadora de literatura infantil, adaptando muchos clásicos de la serie _Las obras maestras al alcance de los niños_ para la editorial Araluce a principios del siglo XX.
Su labor como promotora de la educación de la mujer en relación con la Residencia Internacional de Señoritas Estudiantes, creada en 1931 y que ella dirigió, apenas comienza a ser reconocida.

Su carrera cinematográfica queda eclipsada por el resto de sus actividades, junto con

GLADYS ROSSON (1891-1953).

Hilo de 7 tweets.

El triunfo y la visibilidad de los directores de cine consagrados habría sido imposible sin la ayuda esencial de las secretarias de Dirección, trabajo oculto y camuflado a veces.
Este despliegue de capacidades fue el caso de Gladys Rosson (1891-1953), secretaria personal de Cecil B. DeMille durante 39 años, desde su graduación en la escuela secundaria en 1914 hasta su muerte en 1953.

Dividiendo su tiempo entre el bungalow del estudio, las oficinas de la
Compañía en Laughlin Park, la mansión DeMille, el yate y Paradise Ranch, donde Cecil pasaba los fines de semana, Gladys Rosson acompañó a DeMille a todas partes, dondequiera que la necesitara.

En el set actuó como sustituta de Geraldine Farrar en "Joan the Woman" (1916) ya

#CFWIJ joined Pakistani #womenjournos in condemning the vicious harassment they face online. Attacks against them in digital spaces are a despicable attempt at silencing freedom of the press. Authorities must take concrete steps to end cyber harassment of women journalists.
1. #Pakistan: #CFWIJ stands with Pakistani #womenjournos who face constant online harassment by misogynistic trolls. We joined them in the campaign to shut down these vicious attackers and demand authorities to take strict actions.

2. This year alone, #CFWIJ documented at least nine different cases of threats and violence against women journalists in Pakistan, including cases of online harassment and abuse. Such attacks threaten the freedom of the press in #Pakistan. #AttacksWontSilenceUs Image

Great start to the day today listening to @DaveEvansPhD talk about girls' education around the world. I summarize two main sections of his presentation below (What do we know & how can we help girls gain more education)👇

@CREB_Pak #ADE2020 #education #gendergap #Educatethegirls
Dave and co-authors use the Barro-Lee data from 1960-2010 to establish facts about #gender gap in #education

1. Women are more educated today than any point in history (dark blue- Women aged 15+ in 2010, light blue- Women aged 15+ in 1960)
This is true for all countries and regions. Biggest change in UAE, smallest in Senegal (nonetheless doubles). For #Pakistan #women move from 0.35 years in 1960 to 3.76 in 2010, men move from 1.5 to 6.25 over the same period

The number of dichotomies attached to being a woman are incredible: we're different, but we're not. We need to have empathy, control and strength, but not too much. We can have children, yet we're 'odd' if we don't. The list goes on and on... #women #leadership #truth #MWFdigital
Love the wide ranging leadership styles of the women in @JuliaGillard and @NOIweala's book. Diverse, strong, powerful influencers who are smashing barriers, breaking new ground, shattering all ceilings and refusing to relent. Outstanding! 💪🏽💪🏾 #MWFdigital #leadership #rolemodels
Dynamo @PatsKarvelas shares with @JuliaGillard she is still troubled by Jacinda Ardern sharing that had she entered politics in Australia, things may not have turned out the same way due to our media/system. Jacinda may not have entered politics in Australia. 😱 #MWFdigital

“There’s no #gender-neutral #pandemic, and this one is no different!”

Read this interview @phumzileunwomen on the specific gender dimension of #Coronavirus and how this has highlighted once more the need to have more women in power!…
While #women represent 1/2 of humanity, their under-representation in political offices is appalling. This is not only wrong, but also stupid: female leadership correlates with more inclusive governance & better economic outcomes.
From crossing party lines, being more responsive to public needs, increasing stability, challenging the status quo, and inspiring more #women to run for office, #GenderParity benefits societies and enables progress.

#Thread 1/11

A lot of the male bias are not Intentional,sometimes it is inherent as mindsets,historical trends & many a times simply because the #MensWorld forget to factor women.

#GenderEquality will start with collecting & analysing data about women. #tweet4bharat
#Thread 2/11

Data is fundamental to #DigitalIndia we are dependent on data to make critical decisions & allocate resources for economic development,health care,education, & public policy.
#GenderEquality can be easily brought through #Technology

When you get an over-the-counter medication, it doesn’t tell you male and female doses — it says “child” and “adult,” and that adult is a man. It’s Reference Man.

1/ A very compelling story about how #Women's #Pain & especially #Black women's pain is dismissed and disregarded by the healthcare system.…
2/ The story begins with a woman with sickle cell & her horrifying experience in the hospital. It also discusses pain from syndrome's unique to women, like endometriosis or fibroids.
3/ Pain is a feminist issue. #PainToo must be believed. First, there is the dismissal of women's accounts of their own bodies, tracing to a history of dismissal of symptoms due to absurd misconceived views of #Hysteria in women. Trans folks get the same treatment, or worse.

#CFWIJ's thoughts go out to all the victims of the #BeirutBlast. We are following this tragic incident with concern and extending our solidarity to #womenjournalists working #ontheground.

Read our statement:
1. #BeirutBlast left at least 100 dead and 4,000 injured, as reported by @RedCrossLebanon. #Lebanon was already in an economic crisis and hospitals were struggling amid #Covid19. We thank health workers on the frontlines for their immense efforts during this devastating time.
2. #CFWIJ wishes a speedy recovery to women journalists who are among the injured. #BeirutBlast impacted offices of many news organisations. @AP correspondent @dalalmawad tweeted “coronavirus saved us” implying that staff were not in the office where windows were damaged.

Hey, dispute resolution field. Yeah, you. Listen up, y'all: We really, really, REALLY need to stop using the term 'Ombudsman.'
#ombudsperson #ombudsman #Ombuds #disputeresolution #ADR #conflict #alternativedisputeresolution
We need to stop talking about how we maybe need to stop using it, or how we might use other names alongside it, and we need to just STOP USING IT.
Wondering why I’m tweeting such an atypically, a-professionally unneutral position on this? Then you’re perfectly primed for the next tweet. The unneutral medium really is the unneutral message.
