Tunisia’s #MeToo Started Outside a High School. Will It End in Court?

“#EnaZeda made me feel not alone for the first time. Some of us got used to daily harassment in the street — #EnaZeda showed that this is not O.K., and we should not get used to it at all.” #StopSexualHarrassment #StopViolenceAgainstWomen

Outrage over photographs of a politician appearing to sexually harass a student led hundreds of women to speak out about abuse. But how much change results may depend on a legal case.

“I never thought I would be able to continue my studies after high school because my family was far too poor. It’s so hard to live in poverty. But it’s possible to escape! You have to be determined and keep fighting, no matter what, to build a better life! I was fortunate to receive a scholarship to complete a 2-year training program with “Digital Bridges” in Cambodia. It changed my life!" says Puthterika, a graduate of the IT training program PNC Passerelles Numériques Cambodia. For young women from underprivileged communities in Cambodia, the opportunity of obtaining high-quality IT training can be LIFE-CHANGING! Find out about this wonderful project here: https://www.w4.org/en/project/educational-training-for-young-women-in-cambodia/ Our fundraising campaign to fund advanced IT training for over 40 young women in Cambodia is already 70% funded!

Sex tapes and acid attacks: Anupama Chandrasekhar, the playwright shocking India

"Chandrasekhar has an important reason to return to the Delhi rape. Sexual violence, she says, has become more rife in India since 2012, despite all the national and international hand-wringing that followed the case. “It was not a one-off incident. It has happened over and over again since, and has just become more gory, more brutal. But you can sense the media fatigue around the reporting of crimes against women. If it happens outside of the cities, it’s just another incident. The candlelit vigils don’t happen for women in small towns and villages.”The resurgence of violence in the country has coincided with the rebirth of its rightwing movement and this, says Chandrasekhar, is complicated by the conflict between modernity and conservatism. “Even 30 or 40 years ago, Indian women were growing up freer than girls are now. My grandmother is a pre-independence woman.” India gained its freedom from Britain in 1947. “She was brought up on the idealism that women are as important as men for the growth of the country. She sees what’s happening to the women around her and says, ‘What’s happened to that promise?’" #WomensHumanRights #GenderEquality #EndViolenceAgainstWomen

Her dramas confront the growing horrors facing women in India today. Now she’s reworked Ibsen’s Ghosts, taking out the syphilis and putting in the Delhi bus gang rape of 2012

Women stand defiantly at the vanguard of Lebanon's protest movement

"The women's frontline has braved security forces and the violence of Hezbollah supporters to keep demonstrations as peaceful as possible. {...} Throughout the sprawling anti-government protests that have brought Lebanon to a halt, the country’s women have positioned themselves at the front line of protests. As they assert their role in the demonstrations, they are also redefining their role in Lebanon. For over a week they have been forming human walls between protestors and security forces to ensure that the Lebanese revolution is peaceful. {...} “Violence is not our revolution. We want a peaceful revolution.”"

On the women who fought the Islamic State’s territory — and won.

"Spend time with these women — Kurds, Christian, Arabs — -and it is clear they fight not just to defeat the Islamic State, but to gain against extremism and to advance the idea of women’s equality. After all, who are the first people to pay the price when extremists win? Women and girls. Across communities. {...} Their futures now hang in the balance as negotiations about the fate of their region presses forward. What is not in question is their role serving and protecting their communities and the important part they played in keeping ISIS at bay." - writes Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

The story of America’s partners in the ISIS fight cannot be told without talking about the role of the women who led in battle against men…

Tanzanian court upholds law banning child marriage

"With two out of five girls being married off before their 18th birthday, Tanzania has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world, according to UN estimates.
Children's rights campaigners said local advocacy groups must continue to mount pressure on government to implement the ruling." #GirlsRights #EndChildMarriage

Tanzania's Supreme Court of Appeal on Wednesday upheld an earlier ruling banning parents from marrying off girls as young as 15.

A Hitch at NASA Headquarters

"There are more female astronauts today than ever before, and two of them just added another chapter to the history books. Hearing a NASA official ascribe the lack of female-led spacewalks, in part, to differences between men and women—rather than to the constraints of the spacesuits NASA makes them wear—felt like traveling back in time to the 1960s." #BreakGenderStereotypes #WomenInnovate4Change

NASA has carried out its first all-female spacewalk, but hints of outdated thinking about women in space remain.

#ExcellentArticle by Equals - The Global Partnership for Gender Equality in the Digital Age "Fulfilling Goal 5 of the SDGs, empowering all women and girls "Empowered women have greater capacity to respond to climate change; they play important roles in adopting low-carbon technologies, spreading knowledge about climate change, and urging action". Improving women’s access to technologies can help raise their status in their communities, leading to greater autonomy and access to information, and the power to advocate for sustainable practices, and in turn, lower mortality rates during natural disasters. Tech can be not only life-changing; it can be life-saving." writes Doreen Akiyo Yomoah. #EQUALS #ICT4D #Tech4Women

Every year, approximately 12 million girls are married as children. Tragically, child marriage shatters girls' lives and undermines the welfare and development of entire communities. Yet, IT IS POSSIBLE to protect girls from child marriage and to end child marriage in local communities. For INSPIRATION, we invite you to read about the innovative, impactful work of our field partner program "Women for Equal Chances" in DR Congo which is mobilizing entire communities to end the harmful practice of child marriage, and the heroic advocacy work of the women survivors of child marriage who are at the forefront of these positive community movements! https://www.w4.org/en/wowwire/women-for-equal-chances-ending-child-marriage/

Happy International Day of the Girl! W4 Managing Director Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke moderated a panel discussion at UNESCO in Paris this evening on the crucial subject of girls' education: "Girls’ Education: a force for gender equality and lasting change." "Excitingly, there is a growing global movement to catalyse progress for girls’ & women’s empowerment, and a fresh window of opportunity with the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration & Platform for Action next year. But we still have A LOT of work to do to ensure that EVERY girl in the world enjoys her right to education and that education fulfils its potential to accelerate girls’ & women’s empowerment and gender equality." - Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke, Founder & Managing Director W4.org #InternationalDayofTheGirl #GirlsEducation #GirlsEmpowerment #WomensEmpowerment #GenerationEquality

Afghan Town’s First Female Mayor Awaits Her Assassination

We salute the courage of Ms. Ghafari. "Ms. Ghafari is well aware that she is on the front lines of the struggle for women’s rights in Afghanistan, at a time when recent American peace talks with the Taliban have Afghans thinking about what might happen if the ultraconservative insurgents ever take part in running the country again.
“My job is to make people believe in women’s rights and women’s power,”" #Courage #WomensRights

Zarifa Ghafari expects to die in office. But in the meantime, she intends to do something about the litter problem.
