Katherine Johnson, NASA mathematician depicted in 'Hidden Figures,' dies at 101

"Katherine Johnson, one of the history-making, barrier-breaking NASA mathematicians depicted in {the film} "Hidden Figures," died Monday. {...} She was 101. "Johnson helped our nation enlarge the frontiers of space even as she made huge strides that also opened doors for women and people of color in the universal human quest to explore space," NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said. {...} Johnson was portrayed by Taraji P. Henson in the Oscar-nominated 2016 film about trailblazing black women whose work at NASA was integral during the space race. The film also stars Octavia Spencer as the mathematician Dorothy Vaughan and Janelle Monáe as the engineer Mary Jackson. The work of the women altered the country's history but their names were largely unknown until the movie received acclaim. {... Johnson} said her greatest contribution to space exploration was making "the calculations that helped sync Project Apollo’s Lunar Lander with the moon-orbiting Command and Service Module." In other words, helping to put men on the moon in 1969." #HiddenFigures #WomenInnovate4Change #WomenInSTEM #EQUALS

Johnson "was an American hero and her pioneering legacy will never be forgotten," NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine wrote on Twitter.

Why Men Vote for Republicans, and Women Vote for Democrats

We'd love to hear what you think of this thought-provoking article W4 friends?
"For decades after the 1920 ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which extended the franchise to women, women voted less frequently than men—and, mostly, for the same candidates. Mid-century politicians and pollsters explained this phenomenon by claiming that most women didn’t care about politics and would always duplicate their husband’s vote, if they showed up to the polls at all. As George Gallup said in 1940 of women: “How will they vote on election day? Just exactly as they were told the night before.” But in the past 40 years, Gallup’s theory has been obliterated. In each of the last two presidential contests, women have outvoted men by about 10 million ballots. That’s equal to the total number of votes cast in the state of Texas in 2016. From an electoral perspective, the United States of Women is larger than the United States of Men by a full Lone Star State."

The gender gap is larger than ever.

Scotland on course to pass 'groundbreaking' period poverty law

Dear W4 friends, how is your week going? We hope it's a great one!
And what do you think of this? Are you familiar with the term "period poverty"? It's the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, hand washing facilities, and, or, waste management (Did you know that globally, approximately 2.3 billion people live without basic sanitation services?) Indeed, a lack of access to adequate menstrual hygiene resources continues to affect girls and women everywhere, not just in low and middle-income countries. A lack of menstrual hygiene products can cause girls to miss out on schooling and prevent women from working. Yes, promoting menstrual equity is key to supporting women and girls! #EndPeriodPoverty

SNP-backed bill would lead to creation of universal scheme to provide free period products

We hope to one day be able to say that child marriage is over and that all girls are free and able to receive an education. Every donation represents an important contribution to the betterment of the life of one girl. One more life that can be saved." - David Munyaga, Director of W4 Field Partner Radio Ondese in DR Congo.

It's exciting times for our staff and students in Kathmandu, Nepal! Our Paris team was thrilled to catch up with our Kathmandu Dream Team (pictured here) to discuss the girls’ and women’s IT training programs we’re rolling out in 2020. Meet Alexia, (far left, Alexia coordinates the IT training programs, as well as the W4 e-mentoring programs), Sudip (center, IT instructor) and Goma (far right, local Program Director)! We’re implementing an intermediate IT training course to help motivated students to further progress with their IT studies and transition to advanced IT training. We get super excited about this sort of thing! How can we not? It’s a stepping stone to help young women from underprivileged communities in Kathmandu to acquire crucial IT and soft skills to help them access formal employment!

Elderly black women in South Africa win property rights in landmark ruling

#VICTORY #WomensHumanRights "{...} for black women married prior to 1988, the husband owned all matrimonial assets and could sell them without consulting his wife - until Sithole’s landmark High Court win this month which overturned the discriminatory law. “This is a major judgment for South African women,” said Aninka Claassens, a land rights expert at the University of Cape Town, responding to the ruling against sections of the Matrimonial Property Act of 1984 and amendments made in 1988. “If you haven’t got property rights as a woman, you are more vulnerable to stay in an abusive marriage. This case changes these rights,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Across South Africa, a quarter century after racial segregation and white minority rule under apartheid officially ended through a negotiated settlement, land and property ownership remain sensitive topics. Sithole’s legal victory in the eastern city of Durban could help an estimated 400,000 women by giving them more economic freedom, said the Legal Resources Centre (LRC), a human rights organisation that helped Sithole take her case to court."

Equality won't happen by itself, says Finnish PM

"About 3,000 members of the political, philanthropic and corporate elite - gathered for four days in the Swiss Alps - have heard how the free market fails women, who do most domestic work and caring, limiting their paid opportunities.

An Oxfam report released as the summit opened found women and girls did three-quarters of unpaid work, putting in 12.4 billion hours a day - worth $10.8 trillion a year.

A WEF report last month said it would take 99.5 years to close the gender gap across politics, economics, health and education, according to current trends."

A WEF spokesman said female participation among the attendees at the summit had risen to 24% this year from 22% last year with a commitment by the organisation to double it by 2030."

Sanna Marin, the world's youngest prime minister at the age of 34, says it is not 'that big a deal' for women to be in power in Finland but she welcomes the debate her election has triggered

W4 interview Astha Sharma – Co-fondatrice de Code Rush au Népal | Women's World Wide Web

Notre équipe d’entrepreneurs sociaux a fondé W4 en 2012 avec en tête une motivation principale : tirer avantage de l’immense potentiel offert par les nouvelles technologies, particulièrement en tant que catalyseur de progrès et accélérateur de l’émancipation des femmes. Nous étions par ailleurs convaincus qu’en contribuant à l’inclusion digitale des femmes, les retombées positives seraient visibles non seulement pour ces dernières à l’échelle individuelle, mais aussi pour leurs communautés toutes entières. Alors que nous entamons cette nouvelle décennie, force est de constater qu’il y a encore un long chemin à parcourir pour combler le fossé numérique qui sépare toujours les femmes des hommes. Saviez-vous par exemple qu’à ce jour près de la moitié de la population mondiale n’a toujours pas accès à Internet, et que les femmes sont majoritairement affectées ? Malgré tout, notre équipe à W4 reste déterminée à œuvrer en faveur de l’émancipation des femmes grâce aux ressources technologiques – en alignement avec l’Objectif de Développement Durable 5b. Continuez à nous suivre pour être les premiers informés de nos projets à venir en 2020 !
Pour commencer cette nouvelle année, nous vous invitons à lire notre nouvel article sur WoWWire : un entretien avec Astha Sharma, la jeune et talentueuse co-fondatrice de Code Rush Népal. Lors de cet échange, Astha nous explique les raisons de son engagement pour la participation des femmes et des filles dans le secteur tech au Népal, et comment chacun de nous peut la soutenir dans sa mission ! #GirlsInTech #WomenInTech #Innovate4Change #GenerationEquality

HOW can donating $5/5€ positively impact lives? There are abundant ways it can! Here’s one: in Cameroon (as in many countries across the world) in addition to having to live with the damaging taboo that surrounds menstruation, many girls and women struggle every month just to manage their periods hygienically, something that many of us take for granted. The absence of proper menstrual hygiene products can pose risks to girls’ and women’s health and it also causes girls and young women to miss out on school. But there are SOLUTIONS! W4 is partnering with Girls Excel to produce and distribute washable, reusable sanitary pads as part of a sustainable response to the challenges faced by girls in both rural communities and refugee camps in Cameroon. The sanitary pads are eco-friendly, cost-effective and can be re-used for a year. The program also provides girls and women with access to menstrual hygiene management workshops and information and trains young women from rural communities in the creation of these pads which can also serve as a source of desperately-needed revenues. Find out more about the project here and make a donation today: https://www.w4.org/en/project/provide-girls-rural-areas-refugee-camps-cameroon-access-menstrual-hygiene/ #GirlsRights #WomensRights #GirlsEmpowerment #WomensEmpowerment #Solutions

Barack Obama suggests nations would improve 'across the board' with women in control

Dear W4 friends, you surely saw this but we just had to repost it. What do you think? "I'm absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything ... living standards and outcomes," - Barack Obama.

Former President Barack Obama said most of the world's problems came from old people and men holding onto power
