I've been horrified by seeing some so-called feminists say '$ex work is a woman's choice and it needs to be respected as much as other professions'. By saying this, they're not only promoting human tr@fficking and $ex trade, but also disempowering women.
How? I'll explain.
In 2019, the government reported 2,088 trafficking cases under the IPC compared with 1,830 trafficking cases in 2018 and 2,854 trafficking cases reported in 2017. In 2020, over 900 human trafficking cases were reported with over 3k victims across #India
In 2020, over 900 human trafficking cases were reported with over 3k victims across India. Maharashtra had the highest number of human tr@fficking cases in the country with over 150 cases. (Source: NCRB). And this is just about India. #Maharashtra

There is no recovery from #AryanKhan. Nothing is found on his person. Blood/urine reports are absolutely clear. Kiran Gosavi's affront on the Administration of Justice cannot be justified by a central agency like #NCB
Bail is a Rule and Jail is an exception. We can't turn this fundamental rule of Criminal Jurisprudence upside down to vilify #AryanKhan

(@manijadegarcia) #Epistemology thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

While I take a break I'd love you to read my new related article with @sisterSTEM

(@manijadegarcia) #Epistemology refers to to 'how we know what we know.' #Epistemologies are systems of knowledge & knowing informed by the ways different groups of people navigate & make sense of the world & are related to what we justify based on what's "true" or "real."

2/
Who we are shapes our experiences & therefore our reality. So #disabled people; #women; #BlackPeople; etc. all have their own #epistemologies. Like languages, groups can borrow from each other's epistemologies to build knowledge & make meaning of the world & their lives.

'the story ... is how “trans activists” and their “allies” have actively prevented FiLiA from doing grassroots work to benefit the #women and #girls of #Portsmouth - with the complicity of local institutions and elected representatives.'

'A year-long series, which FiLiA was due to run alongside the Play Youth Community youth groups within @portsmouthtoday , working with #girls excluded or at risk of being excluded from school was #cancelled.'

'The @BritishRedCross individual refused to share details of the events with local #women and lobbied other service providers to also boycott them, again based on spurious accusations of “#transphobia”.'

A learning thread about bodily #autonomy.

"Bodily Autonomy" falls under UN SDG3.

The #SDGs have been officially adopted by 193 countries - every member state of the UN.

All are to uphold #MyBodyIsMyOwn - yet whole populations are being coerced -

in servitude to capital. Image
United Nations:

"Bodily autonomy means that we have the power and agency to make choices over our bodies and futures, without violence or #coercion.

Our human rights, mental wellness and futures all depend on bodily autonomy."

This means NO to #MandatoryVaccinations.
United Nations:

"Intertwined with bodily autonomy is the right to bodily #integrity, where people can live #free from physical acts to which they do not consent."

UN Geneva: "Stop telling #women what to do with their bodies." Image

On October 10, World day of #NoDeathPenalty, freedom-loving Iranians in #Berlin supported the Iranian people's demand for the trial of criminal Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.
#ProsecuteRaisiNOW ImageImage
The call for the arrest and trial of the criminal President of #Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, by all sections of the Iranian people is a national & patriotic demand.
Execution is a tool for the survival of a religious dictatorship that must end in Iran.
#NoDeathPenalty #ProsecuteRaisiNOW ImageImage
#Germany
#Women in #Iran are most exposed to repression, and the clerical regime has a record number of executions of women in the world.
On World Day of #NoDeathPenalty, support the demand of Iranian women for the trial of Ebrahim Raisi.

Inga Clendinnen "Dancing with Strangers"

In this thread students @MQLinguistics read Clendinnen's historical #ethnography based on the diaries of the officers of the 1st fleet to learn about #InterculturalCommunication between British colonizers and Sydney's Indigenous people
#DancingWithStrangers is a story of confusion and ignorance of #culture #language, aspirations, traditions and #law
One of the most tragic figures is Baneelon, an Australian kidnapped by Governor Phillip and taught English in a desperate attempt to create an intermediary.
The detailed musings of the white men in #DancingWithStrangers contrast with the deafening silence of any women's voices - what did the Indigenous and colonising #women think of each other? Of the men they encountered? How different would history be if women had been in charge?

"The KHAKI Files: Women in Police - India"

#India #Police #Governance
The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence, it is to act with yesterday’s logic" - Peter Drucker

Women in India entered the Police force as early as 1933, yet the progress in integrating them further has been awfully slow.

#Police #Governance
The State of Travancore experimented with appointment of women as Special #Police Constables in year 1933, where 1 women head constable & 12 women constables were appointed.

In British India, the need for women police was 1st felt in the year 1938 during the Kanpur labour strike

The right of women to determine the language that describes us is not an abstract demand. It is rooted in the material reality of our lives. It is vital for us to describe our experience; to uphold & improve our rights. Our manifesto: womansplaceuk.org/wpuk-manifesto… #Cervix #Women #Lab21
Our manifesto has a long list of demands to be enacted so that society can begin to address the oppression and discrimination women face. We are tired of being told to wait for equality. We refuse to be told how and when we can make these demands or the language we must use.
The fact that there are so many demands is an indictment of a political estate which continues to fail women. Women have been repeatedly let down by politicians across the spectrum and organisations which should be advocating for and with us.

I'm pro-Lindsay who lost her virginity in her sophomore year with a broken condom and now has to choose whether to be a teenage mom or just a teenager.
9/
You can argue and say that I'm pro-choice all you want, but the truth is:
I'm pro-life. Their lives. Women's lives.
You don't get to pick and choose which scenarios should be accepted.
It's not about which stories you don't agree with.
It's about fighting for the women in the stories that you do agree with and the CHOICE that was made.

Women's rights are meant to protect ALL women, regardless of their situation!
