Thread: (CW: genocide/rape) Today is Genocide Remembrance Day in Rwanda. The genocide began on this day in 1994 and ended roughly 100 days later. Thousands of babies were conceived during the genocide, many by rape perpetrated against Tutsi women. #aapa2021 #RwandaGenocide
Dr. Glorieuse Uwizeye presents at #aapa2021 4/15 on the impact of duration of intrauterine exposure during the genocide on Rwandan young adults (24yrs at study). Conceived earlier during the 100 days, worse adult mental health outcomes (#dohad) with some intriguing exceptions...

When women are being attacked on Twitter, when sexism, racism, misogynoir are on full display, aimed squarely at well-respected colleagues, and men don’t stand up against it forcefully, WE NOTICE. It’s simultaneously not surprising and disappointing. You can fix that. Speak up.
Call out that bullshit. Liking and retweeting aren’t enough. You care about your reputation too much to join the fight? Well, your colleagues’ reputations are directly on the line. Consider why some men feel so emboldened to attack your female colleagues.
Time to walk the walk. #TimesUp on your silence. You’re here on Twitter. You have a platform. You have reach. Use it. Show your junior/female/BIPOC/queer/trans/etc. colleagues you get it and model for your white cishet male pals that they’ve got a responsibility in their power.
