My daughter had a horrible experience on the train from Reading to Waterloo yesterday. At Ascot a late 50s man got on and was clearly very drunk from a day at the races. She was minding her own business when he started to say: go on smile you'd be prettier etc.. 1/5
2/5 when she ignored him (the audacity of a young 22 yr old female travelling on her own) it started to escalate to full blown harassment with comments relating to rophenol and rape! Fortunately the carriage was busy and some young men who had spent the day working at Ascot...
3/5 intervened and shouted him down and made him stop. As he was leaving the train (thankfully at a stop before her) he turned to the men and held out his hand to shake saying sorry lads, it was only a bit of banter! He did not apologise to my daughter. The men told him to...

What frustrate me the most is that we have brilliant women filmmakers who do uncompromising work, center women & aren't rightwing in the slightest!

Sisters, put your money where your mouth is & Give Vaishnavi some Terflove! Promote her ground-breaking film

#womensupportingwomen
it actually REALLY matters who does what. It influences the content of what is being produced. If a right-wing white man's makes a film it is going to be full of conservative propaganda.its going to be male focused, you won't find women's there or our work.
MW are is using our ground work for himself. That's disgusting and it is what men have done with women's work for thousands of years. Systematically: Appropriate and erase.

This #InternationalWomensDay I鈥檇 like to remind my doctor colleagues that medicine has an androcentric history that may impact upon women patients. That woman isn鈥檛 芦聽difficult聽禄, she鈥檚 under-researched and we know less (and even less has been translated to practice). 馃У
We can do Better. Women are also represented less in medical and anatomical textbooks. Here are some papers for further information.

Anybody that is pregnant, should be able to decide if they want to continue being pregnant. Abortion is a reproductive right that everyone should have access to. Abortion should be an option for anyone whose life is in danger of being pregnant. #njcurj
Abortion should not be taboo and no one should be ashamed of having one or getting one. This option can be a matter of life or death. In El Salvador, women are denied this right and are even imprisoned for any suspicion of getting an abortion. #njcurj
Their constitution has defined life beginning at conception and makes abortion punishable for 2 to 8 years in prison. Up to 30 to 50 years for aggravated homicide, which some women face for having a stillbirth, miscarriage, or obstetric emergency. #njcurj

She was married off as a minor, Abandoned by her husband before she turned 18 and never given a divorce till date.. That did not discourage her... She studied, got a job as a teacher, earned and supported herself.. Even though her husband never acknowledged their marriage (1/N)
acknowledged their marriage for nearly 50 years in public... And inspite of him being CM for 3 terms and PM for 2 terms., she has proved the power of being a stong independent woman.
A true inspiration for all independent woman in a male dominant Indian society.

Ladies, let me reassure you--unless you are purposely wiping back to front, your hygiene isn't the problem.

A 馃У on recurrent UTIs.
1/ Is it really a UTI? The best way to know if you have a UTI is to get a urine CULTURE. This is NOT the same thing as when your pee is dipped in the office or the ER! A culture actually tells you what kind of bacteria it is, and what antibiotics will kill it.
2/There are a lot of reasons for it to burn when you pee that are NOT a UTI. STDs, soaps (baby wipes count) sometimes yeast infections or BV, bladder inflammation, urethral cysts, and if you're breastfeeding or menopausal, dryness from not having estrogen around.

"There will come a day when the rotten mess of majoritarian & misogynist evil decays to its very core, collapses, and becomes the manure for living things." - A letter from feminist & historian #JDevika to Kerala's @WCC_Cinema. #Avalkoppam #Metoo (Contd)
kafila.online/2020/10/01/how鈥
#JDevika: "There is no hubris in human history that has not collapsed under its own weight. There is a saying in Malayalam: adiyolam cheenjhaale valam aakoo 鈥 only if it rots to its very core can it become manure." #WomenSupportingWomen #MeToo (Contd)
kafila.online/2020/10/01/how鈥
#JDevika's words to @WCC_Cinema should be read by every women, every activist, every member of a marginalised social group who speaks up for equality. It is a long and tiring road, and when you raise your voice, the backlash is inevitable. (Contd)

1. This is a thread about the #GenderWooWoo that has been on the last years. Its about how it has impacted children, esp. girls, and women, developing into a #WarOnWomen And how my country Norway has come to take leading role in this war.
2. For many, Norway stands as a symbol of equality between the sexes. True, Norway was a pioneer when it came to secure women's sex based rights, namely throug Law of equality between the sexes and through securing women's right to abortion.
3. In the course of only few years, the base for these rights have been erased due to successful lobbying by small but powerful minority groups. The strategies are well known as they are described in detail by the group's international network IGLYO. iglyo.com/only-adults/

"WhY DiDnT YoU RePoRt It"

As a traumatized 16 year old, I was told (probably truthfully) by my rape counsellor -

"the police will ask you questions in a way that will make you feel like you're lying, I don't think you're robust enough for that"

independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/鈥
I did report it, 12 years later. A document resurfaced from my visit to A&E the morning after the incident occured. The nurse asked me if it was consensual.

Consensual, to me, as a sexually naive 16 yr old meant - did you fight him with everything you had? Not, did you say no?
My understanding, at 16, of the word consensual (or lack of) is important as 12 years later it undermined my report.

Had the nurse asked - 'did you say no' I would have given a different answer. I'm not blaming her, she was kind, I remember seeing tears rolling down her face

Around 2003, while working in Mumbai, many of her colleagues from varied Himalayan states of India, discussed frequently and naively on the needs of design interventions to create livelihood opportunities so as to push mountain industries that otherwise face isolation. ImageImageImageImage
They dreamt of opening #design studios from where they could work, expand on #Indian #Designscape 鈥 bringing forth the unique #mountain #lifestyles #philosophies on #materials & #form. Today, Chitku Design Studio is a result of such dreams varnikadesigns.wordpress.com/2019/06/25/mee鈥
