Dr Claire Stewart presents the results of the @ANZCA Gender Equity survey and they are devastating- almost half of women have experienced bullying and over a third have had difficulty obtaining a position, compared to just 3% of men. 1/5 ImageImage
The nature of the disrespect experienced by women anaesthetists is insidious, not overt- this makes it particularly challenging to address. This is amplified by a lack of awareness/allyship by men.☹️ 2/5 ImageImage

En 2022, le #handicap reste le 1er motif des discriminations en France & pour la 6ème année consécutive, d'après le rapport annuel d'activité du @Defenseurdroits

Obstacle principal pour les 12 millions de français concernés ? L'emploi avec 42 % des réclamations reçues.

#Thread Image
Chaque année, le @Defenseurdroits rend compte de son action dans les cinq missions qui lui sont dévolues, dont la lutte contre les discriminations et la promotion de l'égalité.

Le 17 avril 2023, il publie son rapport annuel d'activité.

#Discrimination #Egalité #Handicap
103 pages pour mettre en exergue « les failles et angles morts des politiques publiques », qui révèlent les « multiples entailles dans les principes qui fondent notre société ». « Ce rapport porte la parole de ceux qui éprouvent des difficultés à faire respecter leurs droits » Image

Vous n’avez pas le temps de lire le rapport annuel de la @Defenseurdroits ? C’est dommage.

Vous le trouverez ici :…

Mais je vous propose un petit fil 🧵 pour en retenir quelques points-clés !

D’abord, la pression monte : 126.000 réclamations en 2022 contre 115.000 en 2021.
Et ça progresse dans tous les champs de compétences :
#ServicesPublics, #Discriminations, #Enfance, #Déontologie et #LanceursdAlerte

Ensuite, les délégués (des bénévoles présents dans l’ensemble des départements), ainsi que les juristes du siège, reçoivent tous un nombre croissant de litiges à traiter.

So this is a situation I wanted to speak on as I've seen similar things in the #furrycommunity. This is not meant to be an attack on the individual involved, but I am going to use their actions to highlight two issues I have. 🧵

#discrimination #Battletech #military #Russia
TLDR: a battletech content creator removed someone from their discord because they are a Russian citizen, but because they did anything wrong or said anything hurtful. Reason was given as comfort and security of US service members, which I happen to be. Dropping screen grabs ⬇️

It is now two and half years since the Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust was advised it misrepresents the Equality Act in its equality policy and equality impact assessments. It is in breach of its public sector equality duty.

#SexMatters #discrimination Screenshot of QEHKL equality impact assessment
The Deputy CEO advised one of our members on 10 September 2020 that the errors were noted and communicated to relevant colleagues for their attention re policies, reports and documents. The list of protected characteristics was corrected but the other errors remain in place.
We wrote to 2 January 2023 asking for the outstanding corrections to policies, assessments and reports on behalf of @NorfolkWomen and the Women’s Rights Network North West Norfolk.

There has been no response.

1/ CLB investigated three cases of #women workers in #China facing #discrimination and rights violations related to #maternityleave. We found these incidents through local governments' online message boards and referred the cases to the union. Read more:…
2/ Regarding family leave policies, the ACFTU has the opportunity to ensure both that workers' rights are protected and that state policy goals are upheld, contributing to the union’s political and practical missions. However, in these three cases, the union was not eager to act.
3/ The ACFTU’s Charter requires all levels of the union to est women workers’ committees, which should conduct research, draft policies, and advise on legislation concerning the rights of women workers. In CLB's investigations, however, these committees were not easily reachable.

#BackTo60 #FullRestitution
1. 1st they came for #50sWomen as they:
💥initially added 5 yrs to our State Pension Age whilst deliberately not telling us
💥took no notice of the lifetime of inequality suffered by #50sWomen
💥or that their private pensions are a fraction of men's
💥& auto-enrolment discriminates against women
💥ignored their own pensions committee report that told them exactly those things
💥& the unpaid caring many women carry out
💥then accelerated the rise in SPA by several years
💥& added another year to the SPA for women & men
💥reneged on a promise to give women auto-credits that 9.8 million men had been given over 35 years
💥increased the qualifying years to 35

As a society, we must ensure that the #AI systems we are building are #inclusive and #equitable. This will only happen through increased transparency and #diversity in the field. Using already "dirty data" is not the way

Using biased data to train AI has serious consequences, particularly when data is controlled by large corporations with little #transparency in their training methods

For fair & #equitable AI we need Web3 democratized & agendaless data for AI training

The use of flawed #AI training datasets propagates #bias, particularly in #GPT-type models which are now widely hyped but are controlled by compromised #Web2 MNCs who have a poor track record in #privacy, protecting civil #liberty & preserving free speech…

Boarding Denied

Yet another story of petty people with authority and pens, ruining black Africans’ travel plans on a whim.

@KLM my fiancé was to meet my family for the first time and you have prevented him from doing so because?
Let’s take a look at yet another sad story of race-based discrimination.
But before, let me give you some background:
In October 2020 I (a US citizen born in Italy) discovered I was pregnant. It was not planned, in fact I believed it was something that would never happen to me and it came as a surprise that my pandemic summer fling in the country that I live in, Kenya, would produce this

@ericcoquerel @SyloooOooo 1- D'après une enquête de Reuters, les amendes infligées en France concerneraient davantage les minorités ethniques.

Un après-midi d'avril 2020, Mohamed Assam est allé faire qq courses au supermarché près de son domicile 91.

Le temps de cette sortie, il a écopé de >900 € d'amendes pour 9 infractions différentes sans avoir jamais croisé le moindre policier.

@SNCF Est-ce que le mot "#Discrimination" vous dit quelque chose ? Est-ce que vous savez que c'est illégal ? Oui vous le savez, mais vous vous en foutez. Donc là, ne pas offrir les mêmes promos aux victimes de l'inaccessibilité de votre site, ça ne vous pose bien sûr aucun problème 2/n
@SNCF Alors on a fait un petit test avec un ami voyant. Il a pris sa carte et j'ai pris la mienne. Il l'a fait seul et ça lui a pris environ 5 minutes. Je l'ai fait avec l'aide de deux personnes voyantes consécutives et ça m'a pris environ... 25 minutes. 3/n

As the people of Kashmir continue to bleed & slide deeper into abject poverty,their rulers in #AJK use those very miserable people as their justification to spend 100s of millions of taxpayers’ money to sustain their
own personal lifestyle @ the level of high luxury.
Within 16 months, AJK government purchased 164 luxury cars worth Rs. 870 million for its administrative and political elite in utter violation of rules.
Thanks to Pakistan's ruling classes for forcing thieves, freebooters and plunderers on the people of Kashmir

Thread on illegal reservation of visas by @USCIS in 2022 for ROW leading to retrogression for India EB2 & stagnation EB3 India cutoff dates. #greencardbacklog #discrimination #racism #lawlessagency @David_J_Bier @BradBanias @gsiskind @ckuck @cyrusmehta @immlawACHall @blesjm1
By holding up & refusing to process ~77K EB2/3 AOS from India born applicants & seeking other applicants instead, @USCIS violated INA 202(a)(1), 202(a)(3), 202(a)(5), 203(e) & 203(g).
I would be happy to be proven wrong. Let @USCIS show they did not already have majority of the pending 77K EB2/3 India inventory in Q1 FY2022. They processed majority of AOS in order of priority date(PD), i.e., processed EB2/3 India pending from Oct 2020 BEFORE RoW EB2 PD 2021/22

Being Nilotic (Dark skin) in #Ethiopia
