She was married off as a minor, Abandoned by her husband before she turned 18 and never given a divorce till date.. That did not discourage her... She studied, got a job as a teacher, earned and supported herself.. Even though her husband never acknowledged their marriage (1/N)
acknowledged their marriage for nearly 50 years in public... And inspite of him being CM for 3 terms and PM for 2 terms., she has proved the power of being a stong independent woman.
A true inspiration for all independent woman in a male dominant Indian society.

On #WomensDay I came across this post on FB that speaks about Bible verse on #menstruation so I decided to Google and find more.

An ittu-sa thread. By God. (1/n)
The Book of Leviticus is the third book of the Torah and of the Old Testament. Followed by both Jews & Xtians (2/n)
Most of Leviticus' chapters (1–7, 11–27) consist of God's speeches to Moses, which God commands Moses to repeat to the Israelites. Here it's openly vomiting poison against menstruation & calling for #circumcision (3/n)

عورتوں کے بارے میں وہ پانچ باتیں جو اکثر مردوں کو یاد ہوتی ہیں.... 😁

1- *"إِنَّ كَيْدَكُنَّ عَظِيمٌ"* عورتوں کی چال بہت خطرناک ہوتی ہے
2 - *"مَثْنَىٰ وَثُلَاثَ وَرُبَاعَ"* دو، تین، چار عورتوں سے نکاح کرو.
3- *"النساء ناقصات عقل و دين"* عورتیں عقل اور دین کے اعتبار سے ناقص ہوتی ہیں
4- *"الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ"* مرد عورتوں پر سربراہ ہیں.
5- *"لِلذَّكَرِ مِثْلُ حَظِّ الأُنثَيَيْنِ"* (وراثت میں) مرد کے لیے دو عورتوں کے برابر حصہ ہے
🌹عورتوں کے بارے میں وہ پانچ باتیں جو اکثر مردوں کو یاد نہیں رہتیں🌹 🤭

1- *"وَعَاشِرُوهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ"* عورتوں کے ساتھ بھلائی کے ساتھ زندگی گزارو.

2- *"استوصوا بالنساء خيرا"* عورتوں کے بارے میں میری وصیت کا خیال رکھنا .

Today is the #InternationalWorkingWomensDay - and the "working" part is important, recognizing the value of women as builders of value in society.

I personally believe in an inclusive #InternationalWomensDay for all people who are or are treated as women by society. Image
The day first caught on in socialist and communist countries - hence the "working" - and much later it was adopted by the US and other parts of the world as smoothed as a day to reinforce gender values and gender existentialism instead of fighting for equity and difference.
Although I'm not, in my heart, a woman, I do understand that the relationship the world has with me is one of a woman - or "woman-adjacent", maybe. I can't say I'm not out of the "women" group if I'm still treated as a woman irl. That's why I believe in inclusion.

Na današnji dan prisećamo se izuzetnih žena koje su svojim znanjem, obrazovanjem, umećem, talentima i vizijom menjale Srbiju. Jedna od njih bila je Jelena Anžujska, osnivač prve ženske škole u Srbiji. Po pojedinim mišljenjima bila je to prva ženska stručna škola u Evropi. 1/10
Knjeginja Milica Hrebeljanović bila je prva žena diplomata. Kad joj je suprug poginuo, upravljala je narodom i državom. Osnovala je manastir Ljubostinju u kome je dočekala smrt. 2/10
Katarina Ivanović bila je prva i čuvena slikarka koja je stvarala remek dela srpskog slikartva XX veka. Usavršavala se u Mihenu.
"Uzdam se da će Srbi poštubodati mojim slikama i držati me u spomenu" pisala je kao što je poslala Narodnom muzeju svoje slike. 3/10

So you are looking for female researchers on American foreign policy. In honor of #WomensDay I make your life easier by listing a few of my favorite ones, based on my imperfect memory and in no particular order:
The esteemed @Prof_Borg seems a great place to start. I remember reading her great book, "A New Deal for the World" in grad school, and partly disagreeing with it in a way that helped me write my dissertation.…
Speaking of grad school, that's where I met @EmmaMAshford (at @PoliticsUVA), who is great in every way, both personally and professionally. Read her rather contrarian takes on U.S. foreign policy here:…

Hello👋I'm Etiene. Today is #WomensDay and instead of sending me flowers, I want you to share about my business, @polyglossapp, which I'm creating to improve our communication skills in a foreign language. Download for Android or join the iOS beta list at
Less than 3% of business funds go to women in the US and I don't even know for Brazil, where I'm from or UK, where I'm now, but it's probably similarly low. I can't speak for all women, but as someone who is not after VC money, I have a huntch on why…
Despite the fact that women-led businesses tend to outperform other businesses in profitability, I think the reason why most women start a business is different than why men start a business. This isn't just because of gender, but also wealth…

Le réchauffement global, l'épuisement à venir des énergies fossiles carbonées, l'accroissement de l'insécurité et des inégalités énergétiques sont autant de dérèglements qui menacent les équilibres de nos sociétés.

*तिचे थांबणे ....*

*असं म्हणतात, की वेळ कधीच कुणासाठी थांबत नाही...पण वेळेचं गणित साधणाऱ्या 'ती' ला मात्र थांबावं लागतं वेगवेगळ्या रूपात ! --उदाहरणार्थ साध्या-साध्या गोष्टी--*

पोळपाटावर एक पोळी लाटून तयार असते, इतकी जलद ...
पण 'ती' तिथे थांबून रहाते, तव्यावरची आधीची
पोळी नीट भाजून होईपर्यंत. कंटाळा आला म्हणून अर्धी-कच्ची सोडत नाही...
कधी घामाघूम होऊन, कधी पाय, कधी पाठ दुखत असते... तरीही

सगळी कामे आटोपल्यावरही,ती ओट्यापाशी थांबते, गॅसवरचं दूध ओतून , वाया जाऊ नये म्हणून.


जोडीदार आकाशी उंच झेप घेत असताना,
घरट्यातल्या पिलांच्या पंखात बळ येईपर्यंत , 'ती' थांबते.

शी-शु सांगता येणाऱ्या, पण आपले आपण आवरता न येणाऱ्या मुलांबाळांसाठी, कधी सोबतीला.... बाथरूमच्या दारापाशी ती थांबून असते.

मुलांकडून अभ्यास करून घेताना, शब्द- वाक्य- गणितं- व्याकरण सगळं बरोबर येईपर्यंत 'ती' थांबते.

உலகப் பெண்கள் நாள் வாழ்த்துக்கள்!
Happy #WomensDay & also #WomensHistoryMonth

தமிழ்ப் பெண்கள்
இது போல் பொய்க் கட்டுப்பெட்டித்தனங்களை,
’தமிழ் மரபு’ எ. நம்பவே நம்பாதீர்!
உங்கள் குழந்தைகளுக்கும் பரப்பாதீர்!

முறுக்கு உண்க!
அவற்றில் பொய்க் கதை சோடிக்காதீர்!😂
இது போன்ற கட்டுப்பெட்டிக் காட்சி பார்த்தாலே
*சங்கத் தமிழிலோ
*பிற தமிழ் இலக்கியத்திலோ
ஒரு தரவும் இல்லை எ. அறிக!

*முறுக்குவதால்= முறுக்கு (பிசைந்து இறுக்கல்)
*பொரிப்பதால்= பொரிவிளங்காய்
(விளாம்பழ அளவில் நெற்பொரியால் உருண்டை)
*அரிப்பதால்= அரியதரம் (அதிரசம்)
பொரிவிளங்காய் உருண்டை
என்பது ’பொருள் விளங்கா’ உருண்டை அல்ல!:)

கி.வா.ஜகன்னாநதன் போன்ற
பிராமணத் தமிழ் வாத்திகள்
சிலேடை எ. பேரில், செய்த குழப்படியால்
இணையத்தில் தவறாகப் பரவியுள்ளது!

*விளங்காய்= விளாம்பழம் போல்..
*பொரி= பொரித்த நெல்/தானிய உருண்டை
அவ்வளவே! மிகை செய்யாதீர்!

On the occasion of #WomensDay sharing a series of posts and podcasts of mine on some great women of Indian history. Again this is not an exhaustive list, just a humble tribute of mine to these remarkable women.
Margaret Elizabeth Nobel better known to us as Bhagini Nivedita, the disciple of Swami Vivekananda who spread his message, supported the revolutionaries of Bengal, one of the driving forces behind the Bengal Renaissance. #WomensDay…
“Behind every successful man is a woman” so goes the common saying. While we are familiar with Veer Savarkar, not many know about the woman in his life, Yamunabai Savarkar or more affectionately known as Mai.
