Memory is a record.
People only have substance within the memories of other people. And that’s why there were all kinds of myself. There weren’t a lot of myself per se, I was just inside all sorts of people, that’s all.

Violence against women and girls (VAW) is one of the most systematic and widespread human rights violations. It is rooted in gendered social structures rather than individual and random acts; it cuts across age, socio-economic, educational and geographic boundaries; affects all societies; and is a major obstacle to ending gender inequality and discrimination globally. According to UN Women, between 15 and 76 percent of women are targeted for physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime.

Indian women alter SlutWalk to better match country’s conservatism

Indian women alter SlutWalk to better match country’s conservatism

A young man follows a teenage girl along a street in India’s capital on a recent muggy morning, leering. The girl, wearing jeans topped with a long tunic, quickens her steps. As the man closes in, she covers her mouth with her hands. Bystanders cover their eyes.

Then everybody freezes in place.

The two had just acted out the first scene of a street play about sexual harassment and social acquiescence that Indian university students have been performing across the city as part of the run-up to SlutWalk Delhi, India’s version of the campus campaign that began in Toronto in April and has since spread to Argentina, Australia, Britain, Germany, South Korea and the United States.

Clinton Says African Economies Would Fail Without Women’s Toil

“The women of Africa are the hardest working women in the world. If all the women in Africa, from Cairo to Cape Town, decided they would stop working for a week, the economies of Africa would collapse.”

“Have you been to a market? Have you looked at fields being tilled? Have you watched children being raised? Women are holding up half the economy already.”

— U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
