PPOPHET MUHAMMAD’S LAST SERMON

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered his last sermon (Khutbah) on the ninth of Dhul Hijjah (12th and last month of the Islamic year), 10 years after Hijrah (migration from Makkah to Madinah) in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat.
His words were quite clear and concise and were directed to the ENTIRE HUMANITY .
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.
Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.

2 months ago, I started drawing cartoons w/ women as different types of scientists & different STEM fields. Today, my collection “We are Scientists” has ~20 illustrations. I want to do more... What other STEM fields should I draw to show #WomenInSTEM? Which one represents you?
1/2 Thank you to all the scientists (and non-scientists) folks who have shared their preferred STEM fields. Now, I have a running list of >60 STEM fields and that gives me drawing material for the rest of the year ...
2/2 It is amazing to see and learn all the fields and sub-fields worked and studied by #Women and supporters. Your response to my post is amazing and I am grateful to be part of this community. Thank you! #RepresentationMatters #WomenInSTEM

A) Here is your #democrats 2020 war horse and what will be the theme:

#kamalaharris will be the show dog: being from #california she'll more than likely carry that state in votes mostly by #immigrants/#liberal #women/#hollywood/dead people RT @DunbarJoseph #QAnon @CarrionSoul
B) Other dem candidates will be deemed: too old, too flakey, too unlikable, unpalatable, weak, and speaking in tongues while a nice debate ploy will alienate some of the base.

C) harris is seen as a foghorn for #womens issues: fake labeled issues like->RT #QAnon @kasmouse @GOP
"women's reproductive health" (infanticide), rape, misogyny, work place equality, free health care, free school, school loan forgiveness..OR..free stuff, baby killing, womens's victimhood, slacker cash Also expect a big pitch to #immigrants..RT #QAnon @Good4Education @peggyruppe

2. Thinks #Muslims/#Jews are inherently thorny.

3. Thinks #women should be 'more' religious than #men.
4. Thinks #Blacks are somewhere lazy.

5. Thinks #wealth is always a consequence of #hardwork and not #privilege.

6. Justifies #war benefiting his/her country at the expense of another.
7. Condemns #atrocities of others but justifies those committed by his/her #nation.

8. Wants to explore the #East but hates refugees in the #West.

9. Wants to live in the West but loves #Sharia/#Hindutva in the East.

Day 2. Still pre-conference. I must confess that while taking notes today, I sincerely wondered to myself: how will I condense this much information in a way that its essence is not lost? So much was said; so much needs to be done. Oya grab your seat. @LagosStudies #lsa2019
The first panel was the Gender and Academy II. Panelists were Yetunde Zaid, Lynn Schler, Bamidele Wale-Oshinowo, Oyeronke Oyewunmi, Mojubaolu Olufunke Okome (@mojubaolu) and Taibat Lawanson (@TaibatLawanson) The first question shows that mentorship comes in various forms.
Who was your first mentor?:

"My first mentor was my Ph.D. supervisor. He was good @ treating students equally&that gave everyone a sense of confidence when starting out with their career. It distilled any competition that we might have&developed a sense of community.” Schler

Biggest cheer during @iowademocrats chair @troymprice's opening remarks came after he predicted #Iowa Ds will "send @joniernst into an early retirement." #IASen #HallofFame
Sen @CoryBooker is 1st candidate to speak at #HallofFame event. (19 candidates will each have 5 minutes)
"We are being tested. This is a moral moment in America, and we must meet this test. I'm running for president because we can't take 4 more years of Donald Trump." #iacaucus
But @CoryBooker isn't just running to beat Donald Trump. That's the floor, not the ceiling. We can't just run on what we are against. Democrats need to tell people what we are for. "Every American needs health care, and make no mistake, abortion is health care." #iacaucus

1. Vaginal discharge is normal.

2. Wearing panty liners 24/7 is not necessary.

3. Vaginas are acidic enough to BLEACH fabric, hence the discoloration of underwear.

4. Longer labias are more common than smaller ones (but both are fine).
5. A mans sperm CAN throw off your pH balance and also change the smell of your vagina

6. It is not safe for vaginas to smell like sunshine and flowers so quit expecting it to.

7. STOP douching and washing your vagina with bath&body works, and Victoria secret. Its not healthy
for the vagina.

8. The vagina cleans itself.

9. Having sex has no correlation of how "tight" your vagina is.

10. Yeast infections are COMMON!!!

11. The best thing you can do for your vagina is to leave it alone.😴

12. If your vagina stinks (fish, garbage, sour milk)

1/5 The failure of the #UnitedNations’ mechanisms to take any action to force the Syrian regime to stop bombing the protected #hospitals and facilities, the inability of the Security Council to act due to the #Russian veto, and the failure to create an international coalition...
...responsible for protecting civilians and medical and civilian facilities, have all contributed to enabling the #SyrianRegime and its allies to continue with their barbaric #Strategy of bombing of medical facilities.

THREAD.

I was asked today to share my thoughts on the potential effect of what appears to be a mass exodus of talented #women from the #corporate world.

I thought perhaps it was a good time for a history lesson.

(1/7)
We don't have to wonder about the potential, we've already seen it. The last US recession impacted a lot of people (maybe except the bankers who caused it), but it hit women of color hardest. #truth #WOC

(2/7)
It represented one of the greatest losses of wealth in recent history and the demographic that was hit hardest is now the single most entrepreneurial group in the nation, women of color. Coincidence? Nope.

Trump’s WORLDWIDE Effect on the Global Reproductive Rights of Women

Trump and his conservative Christian-centric administration are using positions of authority to impose religious policies on long-established reproductive rights that put women around the world at risk.
Background

Ronald Reagan signed the Mexico City Policy in 1984. This sweeping mandate against reproductive freedom around the globe denied,

“US federal funds to any organisation involved in providing abortion services overseas or counselling women about them.”
Though revoked by every Democrat and reinstated by every Republican
since, Trump has taken up the cause with renewed vigor.

Every time the global gag has been reimposed by a Republican president, rates of back street and self-administered abortions have increased.

The sound of #women determined to defend our hard won sex-based rights must never be underestimated.

The room is packed, the noise is deafening.

The Women's Liberation Movement is very much alive!

Our first panel at the #GlobeWomenPower symposium is about #Women, #Culture and #Art 🎭

We are very lucky to have @soulsister8, @ClairevkVan, @mogster and @Winsome_Pinnock reflecting on themes of #leadership, guided by our chair Professor Charlotte Scott.
We first ask - what does #leadership mean to you?

See the responses from our panel below - and share your own answer too!
For @soulsister8 leadership is multilayered - it's a strong element of who we are as humans. It's more a human expression than a business term, although we bring who we are to the workplace...

With the #abortion bills in the US effectively banning abortion in all circumstances, it is time we remember Henry #Morgentaler, a Canadian physician who challenged the #criminalization of abortion in Canada and went to prison for it.

[THREAD]

#law #medicine #obgyn
Dr. Morgentaler was born in Poland in 1923. He was imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. After the war, he immigrated to Canada to study and practice medicine. 2/25
From the beginning he had an interest in reproductive health, becoming one of the first physicians to perform vasectomies, place intrauterine devices (IUD, a form of birth control), and provide birth control pills to unmarried women. 3/25

1/thread on #MaternalMortality

@harvardmed Professor Dr. Neel Shah to @HarvardHealth:

American #women today are 50% MORE likely to die in childbirth than our mothers were & “the risk is consistently 3 to 4 times higher for black women than white women...”health.harvard.edu/blog/a-soaring…
2/x- The disturbing racial disparities in America’s #MaternalHealth outcomes mirror racial inequality among our nation’s infant mortality rates.

The @CDCgov found the infant mortality rate for black babies in our nation is TWICE that of white babies. ajc.com/news/national/…
3/x- Per @BrookingsInst:
“this is not just a poverty story. Babies born to well educated, middle-class black mothers are more likely to die before their first birthday than babies born to poor white mothers with less than a high school education”
