"Climate justice should not be a privilege. It's a fundamental human right." - Sylvia Wu, legal coordinator at Greenpeace Taiwan [1/11] Chinese girl with medium-length hair smiling
“My name is Sylvia Wu. As a legal professional, I aspire to use my legal knowledge to bring about positive changes.

In February of 2021, we filed the first climate litigation in Taiwan, Greenpeace East Asia and others v. Ministry of Economic Affairs. [2/11]
I worked closely with the individual plaintiffs, local NGOs, and our project team to urge the government to be more ambitious in climate change law amendments and to challenge the rigid judicial system. [3/11]

"I saw this course advertised on my friend's WhatsApp story. And I thought it would enable me to work with my husband in our garage." Rutuja, a student from our two-wheeler automotive program, shared her story. Theirs is the only garage in Kogil, #Kolhapur. #Breakthebias #IWD2022
Rutuja is happy to learn about vehicles and their parts from this course. In the beginning, she attended online lectures introducing her to the field and followed it by practical training at her garage. "I always wanted to work after my studies, and now is the opportunity!"
She adapted to the garage so well that her husband could open another garage in the city and spend half a day there while Rutuja attends to the customers here. "I can do a battery & horn check-up, change the break-line, and I am continuously learning new things", she says.

"I remember the first day of my job. A group of 15 people came to our restaurant. I served them & earned their appreciation. I have learned many languages too. Apart from Marathi, I know Gujarati, Hindi, English & Nepali. This is the beauty of working in this industry. #IWD2022 Image
Nandini's professional journey began from Bhavnagar in #Gujarat & after working in #Nagpur & #Rajkot, she is currently working as Food and Beverage Manager at #Ahmedabad. Originally from #Yavatmal, #Maharashtra, she oversees operations at two properties in the city. #Breakthebias
She chose Pratham's #hospitality course at Ralegaon as a career option against her parents' wishes. "My parents were not ready. But I wanted to gain experience, work in different cities and see the outside world. And I am happy where I am", she says. #InternationalWomensDay2022

It's official: Senate Democrats have included the bipartisan Violence Against Women Act reauthorization bill in the omnibus spending bill.

It's been 3 years since Congress failed to reauthorize VAWA, and nearly 10 since they've passed a new VAWA bill.
This is a big deal because the main reason VAWA hasn't been renewed, updated, strengthened, etc is because Senate Republicans repeatedly blocked it. They even blocked their own damn bill on this.

This time around, it has 10-11 Republican cosponsors along with Dems.
So what does this new VAWA bill do?

It reauthorizes VAWA programs through 2027.

It also has new stuff in it that domestic violence prevention advocates say is badly, badly needed.…

As a Black woman, I am very hesitant to join women’s movements or initiatives. In honor of #InternationalWomensDay2022 and #WomensHistoryMonth, I’ll tell you why. Let me tell you a story…(1/?)
Some time ago, I was working on a very sick hospital unit. I watched people on my medical team publicly berate an extremely shy, kind, and knowledgeable Black female pharmacist on OUR team. Yup, we were supposed to be working together. (2/?)
Their behavior was unacceptable and unprofessional. They began to YELL at her for not doing something they wanted in a particular way. That ‘something’ was not life-threatening nor urgent. And they had not been clear about what they wanted ahead of time.(3/?)

I didn’t think I’d be telling this story soon enough but here we have it.

Stay with me. Image
Earlier today, my mom had me proofread a letter she had written and I had to make corrections.

Thing is, my handwriting is .. let’s say quite special and I knew I was in for a memory jog already, lol.
So, I had to re-write the thing and add my corrections. It was a formal letter, not lengthy.

As I was to hand her the sheet, I asked, will you be able to read this with your glasses or should I read it out to you?

This #InternationalWomensDay2022 let’s revisit the progressive judgments of the Indian Courts reaffirming the rights of the women and providing them better protection of the law.

#ICLU celebrates 21 judgments of the #SupremeCourt on this #WomensDay
1. The Apex Court providing for detailed guidelines for safety of women at workplace in Vishakha & Ors. v. State of Rajasthan & Ors. (1997) directed employers to provide a mechanism for redressal of grievances of employees. (1/2)
These guidelines were eventually formalised as legislation with the passing of the Sexual Harrasment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013. (2/2)

I've a number of tributes to pay on this important day.

The first must obviously go to the women of #Ukraine

This picture demonstrates their suffering & their personal courage

I stand with them in #Solidarity

Photo from the front page @thetimes

It's a strange start to this tribute, but today is the 21st anniversary of my Dad's death. His life and of his Mother, Mary Breheny, is couched in real courage through #MotherAndBabyHomes #MagdalenLaundries

#Justice is coming!

I pay tribute to #BreedaMurphy from the #TuamMotherandBabyHomeAlliance

Her passion, compassion and determination against @cnalive @merrionstreet to deliver the stories & change of #Survivors #MotherAndBabyHomes & #Magdalene story is inspirational

I used to identify as a Feminist.
I looked to the examples of the suffragists who marched for equal voting rights
I looked to the examples of notable African women who fought for the right of the African girl child to access Education.
I looked to the examples of women everyday around me who despite the hurdles they faced, continuously achieved their goals.

But recently, those who claim to be Feminists are not people I want to identify with.
They are those who are fighting misogyny with misandry forgetting that two wrongs don’t make a right

They are those who are kicking against basic human decency, forgetting that we are all capable of making our choices

It's #InternationalWomensDay2022 #IWD2022

Women and non-binary people are still systematically excluded from economic thinking and decision making.

A thread🧵.
1/ Students

Worryingly, the number of women studying economics is backsliding.

The proportion of UK economics undergraduates who are women was only 27% in 2019 - down from 31% in 2002.….
2/ Academics

Women make up 15% of economics professors. Only 8% of academic posts are held by Black women and women of colour.

At no point between 2012–2018 was a Black woman employed as a professor of economics anywhere in the UK, @RoyalEconSoc has shown.

On #InternationalWomensDay2022 I want to highlight that there is still a very real gender-based disparity in STEM by looking at the facts. These issues need to be addressed if we are to ever equity...a thread 🧵

Women in STEM are:
Cited less (papers cited 5.6 times on average compared men at 7.2) and whilst the difference may be small, long term cumulative effects of this have huge impact through the promotions process.…
Harassed more. Nearly 50% of women in science, 58% of women in academia and 43% of female STEM graduates report experiencing harassong behaviours.…

THREAD: Laurie Penny v Julie Bindel and JK Rowling. Or to put it another way: Laurie Penny against the world.

The usual disclaimer applies before I start. I'm a man. This isn't my fight or my struggle. I'm just a bloke commenting on the internet.
I'm also not here to make Penny's suffering worse or something. I wish them well. I wish all fully paid-up members of the human race well.

Laurie says they're taking time off Twitter in any case. I do appeal for no pile-ons against anyone resulting from this thread.
I also have no doubt whatsoever about the very real trauma Penny has been through during her life. I'm not here to minimise that in any way either.

But that trauma is not some get-out clause for writing an objectively awful book.

Oh look! South Korea remains at the bottom of Economist’s glass ceiling index. Again.
We spent some time with both sides of the so-called ‘gender-war’ in South Korea during this presidential election to try to find out why feminism has become such a dirty word.

Why misogyny is at the heart of South Korea's presidential elections…
I would say this about my time with all of these dedicated young people - they are all politically active and involved. Both the men and the women.

All want change. So whoever wins the Blue House should be prepared for a young generation who will hold them to account.
