Full Quote Thread:
“I am now 73 years old. I was at Indian residential school from age 11-15. I had to work in the infirmary, where there were many sick and hungry children. I’d steal food like peanut butter and bread to feed them. A lot of kids died there."
"I had to handle the dead children — wrapping them to be buried. Once I got caught speaking my native language. I wasn’t aware my language was different. My punishment was having four fingernails pulled out. At residential school we all received numbers. I was known as #702."

Whether it is a former president of Islamic Republic of Pakistan or the current CCPO of the capital of Pakistan’s largest province, the mindset of our male dominated society hasn’t changed in the last four decades.

“You must understand the environment in Pakistan … This has become a money-making concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself #raped.”

~President Musharraf
From #BenazirBhutto to #AsmaJahangir to #MukhtarMai and thousands of unnamed #women made it possible to force the successive parliaments to make changes in Hudood Ordinance. Whatever rights they have now, because of their own struggle.

One thing I want to say to skeptics of #Cuties who are basing their judgement off how exhibitionist the dance moves are in it, especially in the final competition performance scene, is that while it can be okay to draw boundaries for kids wrt exhibitionism, 1/12
there will be instances where girls cross lines adults don't want them to cross, and there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to rebuke them; it is inappropriate to let boys/men feel entitled to exhibitionist girls'/women's bodies which, like all girls'/women's bodies, 2/12
boys/men do not have dominion over! Dance and sexual relationships have features in common, but not all of the body language that can be seen in both should be seen as explicitly sexual in all instances. While I believe that explicit sexual exhibitionism can occur in dance, 3/12

1. It's been two years since I finished writing 'The #Sabarimala Confusion- #Menstruation Across Cultures: A Historical Perspective'. It has been one of the most satisfying projects to me personally. #BookBoost Image
2. What started as a series of articles under the title 'Hindu views on Menstruation' in 2016 grew into a full-fledged book by 2018 having 350+ pages with references alone forming 50+ pages. The book published by @Vitastapublish is currently in 2nd reprint. #BookBoost
3. The book examines the notions and practices associated with #menstruation in cultures and religions across the world. Two themes of special focus in the book are: Impurity and Sacrality. #Women #Sabarimala #BookBoost

When @Sal_Robins first started talking to us about all the gender nuts we (her family & friends) took little notice. It all sounded pretty far fetched & beyond ‘our world’ to be honest. After she told me she got suspended from Twitter & shower me what she got suspended for I 1/

Twitter #Censorship just removed my thread on rugby & allowing males to play against women, so let’s try again: On the subject of women’s sports. I started playing rugby at 4. Touch rugby for the little uns. I’m Welsh. Boys (in particular) are raised on it. I played all 1/

when men play rugby we play to win. We play to dominate our opponents on the pitch. Every one of us is competitive. Rugby is an aggressive & often violent sport. It’s not called a contact sport because we pat each other on the back & peck kisses on each other “cheek to cheek” 3/

My little sis @Sal_Robins got suspended from Twitter for 7 days yesterday for daring to call someone who IDs as transgender a “trans identified male” & pointing out the danger of appointing this male in a woman’s managerial position on a women’s locked psych ward. Twitter 1/

वाचकन्वी (गार्गी)
दार्शनिक
भारत में पुरुषों के साथ ही भारतीय महिला दार्शनिकों तथा साध्वियों की लम्बी परंपरा रही है। वेदों की ऋचाओं को गढ़ने में भारत की बहुत-सी स्त्रियों का योगदान रहा है उनमें से ही एक है गर्गवंश में वचक्नु नामक महर्षि की पुत्री 'वाचकन्वी गार्गी'।
' एक प्राचीन भारतीय दार्शनिक थी। वेदिक साहित्य में, उन्हें एक महान प्राकृतिक दार्शनिक, वेदों के प्रसिद्ध व्याख्याता, और ब्रह्मा विद्या के ज्ञान के साथ ब्रह्मवादी के नाम से जाना जातीं है। बृहदारण्यक उपनिषद के छठी और आठवीं ब्राह्मण में, उसका नाम प्रमुख है
वृहदारण्यक उपनिषद् में इनका याज्ञवल्क्यजी के साथ बडा ही सुन्दर शास्त्रार्थ आता है। एक बार महाराज जनक ने श्रेष्ठ ब्रह्मज्ञानी की परीक्षा के निमित्त एक सभा की और एक सहस्त्र सवत्सा सुवर्ण की गौएँ बनाकर खडी कर दीं। सबसे कह दिया-जो ब्रह्मज्ञानी हों वे इन्हें सजीव बनाकर ले जायँ।

My tired brain would like to associate '8' with infinity, since that's how long it will take to get any semblance of #diversity across #media.

Here's month eight of tracking the sorry #OpEds of @IndianExpress @htTweets and @the_hindu.

THREAD
As sad as it is to note the increase in the number of #COVIDー19 positive cases across #India, it's sadder to note the lack of increase in #female #OpEds.

@IndianExpress had 129 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 120.
Of the 129 in IE, #women got 37 bylines, including 10 #jointbylines.

@IndianExpress adopts a convenient trope of getting multiple joint bylines featuring women. At times, as many as 3 women for one small piece.

While this is just sad, it ups the numbers.

Brand Stories- Story No. 2

When Prime Minister Nehru asked JRD Tata to start India's first cosmetic brand 🇮🇳

The story of Lakme 💁‍♀️

( A Thread🧵 )

#IndependenceDayIndia2020 #AatmaNirbharBharat #15August Image
1) It was the early 1950’s. India had just won its freedom and the economy was shaky.

Upper middle class women were spending valuable foreign exchange on western cosmetics which was draining the country's Forex Reserves.

#women #India Image
2) This was disturbing Prime Minister Nehru as the Indian society was in its nascent stage and maintaining Forex was of the utmost importance.

 So, he came up with the idea of starting an Indian cosmetic brand. Image

MARÍA LUZ MORALES GODOY (1890-1980).

Es un nombre poco conocido en la historia de la Cultura y algo más en el Periodismo en España.

Su reconocimiento se debe, principalmente, a su carrera como periodista.
En 1936 fue la primera mujer en dirigir “La Vanguardia” y también trabajó como editora, traductora y adaptadora de literatura infantil, adaptando muchos clásicos de la serie _Las obras maestras al alcance de los niños_ para la editorial Araluce a principios del siglo XX.
Su labor como promotora de la educación de la mujer en relación con la Residencia Internacional de Señoritas Estudiantes, creada en 1931 y que ella dirigió, apenas comienza a ser reconocida.

Su carrera cinematográfica queda eclipsada por el resto de sus actividades, junto con

GLADYS ROSSON (1891-1953).

Hilo de 7 tweets.

El triunfo y la visibilidad de los directores de cine consagrados habría sido imposible sin la ayuda esencial de las secretarias de Dirección, trabajo oculto y camuflado a veces.
Este despliegue de capacidades fue el caso de Gladys Rosson (1891-1953), secretaria personal de Cecil B. DeMille durante 39 años, desde su graduación en la escuela secundaria en 1914 hasta su muerte en 1953.

Dividiendo su tiempo entre el bungalow del estudio, las oficinas de la
Compañía en Laughlin Park, la mansión DeMille, el yate y Paradise Ranch, donde Cecil pasaba los fines de semana, Gladys Rosson acompañó a DeMille a todas partes, dondequiera que la necesitara.

En el set actuó como sustituta de Geraldine Farrar en "Joan the Woman" (1916) ya
