Thank you for reporting on the difficulties faced by the #NoOutsiders project team ("Gay education in primaries climbs back into the closet" (TES, October 17)

The project's aim to challenge homophobia & transphobia in & thru primary education was always likely2 be controversial
The project's aim to challenge homophobia and transphobia in and through primary education was always likely to be #controversial, but we have no intention of being stopped in our tracks even by the #extremity of #opposition to this #groundbreaking work from certain groups
but we have no intention of being stopped in our tracks even by the extremity of opposition to this groundbreaking work from certain groups.

It seems that there are some people who will stand out against equality whatever the changes in the law

Kwati Candith Mashego-Dlamini: In #SouthAfrica, we have space for #women & struggle side by side with men. #Women need to be seen as individuals. Empowerment of women is not a side agenda, but we need to focus on how we can help them have their own space & strength. #Raisina2022
.@ctgchatter: We require political will, affirmative action, and policy changes to empower #women. I believe, empowered women, empower women.

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

… 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)

📚In recent years, girls have overtaken boys in educational attainment. But during the #COVID19 pandemic (and previous crises), girls were more likely to drop out of school
With school closures disrupting education the past 2 years, urgent #GenderEquity-focused measures are needed to help girls remain and return to school, including economic incentives, safe bathrooms & facilities, and effective communication of education’s benefits with families

International Women’s Day #IWD is to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, & political achievements of women around the world.
But today, my heart aches for the women of my homeland who've had their achievements of the last two decades taken away from them overnight.
20 years ago, one of the reasons the US invaded Afghanistan was to ‘liberate’ its women from the oppression & tyranny of the Taliban.

They were sold a dream of freedom & liberty to choose their own destiny & they worked excruciatingly hard to make that dream a reality. 2/7
From politics to sports, technology, arts, business, education, community, the progress of the women of Afghanistan has been nothing short of phenomenal.
But they were betrayed.
20 years later, they were sold back to their oppressors & left utterly alone with a broken dream. 3/7

Prepandemic paid work:
- 2/3rd of health & social care workers are women, including undervalued essential workers (eg aged & disability support

- Across the globe women do more unpaid care work, creating barriers to paid employment

NEW—The social & economic effects of the #COVID19 pandemic threaten to reverse progress in #GenderEquality by widening gender gaps that already existed in employment, education & gender-based violence, according to our new study in @TheLancet
🗣“Based on previous crises, it is also likely men will be rehired at rates higher than women. This combination can result in severe impact to long-term income and career progression for #women globally,” said IHME Postdoctoral Scholar and co-author Dr. @luisaflorr
Based on data from 193 countries, a substantial amount of research shows that DIRECT health effects of the #pandemic have impacted 🚹 more than 🚺. Conversely, existing evidence indicates that INDIRECT effects of #COVID19 have affected women disproportionately. #GenderInequality

#UNGA #FirstCommittee opened October 4th. Read highlights from statements for the General Debate that mention conventional weapons and the #ArmsTreaty here ⬇️
In her statement @UNODA’s @INakamitsu noted that a critical piece of the disarmament puzzle is the effective control of convention arms including efforts to mitigate and address its humanitarian impact, and excessive accumulation and illicit trade. #ReduceHumanSuffering
.@INakamitsu welcomed exchanges at #ArmsTreaty #CSP7, particularly on this year’s thematic focus on SALW and effective stockpile mgt. She cited #ammunition, an integral part of weapons used in conflict, as an issue that has long lacked dedicated, multilateral attention.

Every time I see WEF/UN talk abt “gender” “Women”, I think about how they appointed Ghislaine’s TerraMar partner to COVID efforts & UN Women.

Also, Ghislaine’s sister, Isabel, and 2 of Gates/Epstein’s scientists (Boris & Melanie)at WEF

+Ghislaine’s dad attended WEF

It’s not that I don’t have faith in these’s what I *KNOW* to, factually, be wrong about what they’re selling.

Do you normally buy things from people who don’t buy their own products?
Also, Talibannies are now “Inclusive”

They slapped an ESG sticker on...

So, their child-raping, women-subjugation, backwards ways are now “progressive”.

This is going to be controversial, but here goes.
Although I do believe in #GenderEquality, I don't consider myself to be a #feminist.
I will explain the reasons why in this thread... (1/x)
First let's look at the Meriam-Webster definition of the word...

"[A] belief in and advocacy of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes expressed especially through organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests."

This definition: ✔️
However, the people that call themselves "feminists" don't always reflect this reality.
Even if you are committed to improving the rights of women, you might very well not be a feminist.
Why? (3/x)

.@katehamptongray: Environmental damage & women’s unpaid work are often ignored by orthodox economics and are only seen as externalities. Consequently, these issues are often held in silos. We aim to bring them to the centre of the conversation. #Raisina2021
