I am a student in an International Baccalaureate high school in the United States. In my IB Spanish class, we are currently discussing social relations (one of the core themes for the course) and their implications toward human rights. I find it funny, hysterical even, that people think human rights violations do not exist. Sure, if you are an innocent, little girl scout of age 9, I would expect no more from you; however, if you are of thinking (that is, lucid thought) age, you sho...

3 days ago I was having a conversation with 2 friends(A and B); and in typical gossip fashion, a particular guy's name pops up... friend A blurts out that she found out he was gay from another friend; then friend B says she had a feeling he was. She went on to say (friend B), that it's very sad and embarrassing that he is this way; that if people found out, it would be impossible for him to get a job; that it would be harder for him to retain guy friends(because no guy wants to be...

In recent years there has been an increase in cases pertaining to police brutality and the mistreatment of citizens of color and of particular descent. This shines a light upon the social standards of today and the morals of the men and women that protect our streets and neighborhoods. These men and women strike fear in our hearts, tainting our perception of the New York Police Department. More importantly, many people do not now their rights as a citizen and therefore are taking a...

Imagine: you're sitting in first period when you realize that you really have to pee. Your teacher lets you out with a stern glance and a sharp "be back in five minutes." You walk down the hallway to the bathrooms and are faced with a dilemma: the signs depict a male bathroom and a female bathroom, but you know that you are neither truly male nor female, you are more of a mystical creature, undefined by the strict laws of gender put in place by society. Choosing randomly, you rush...

Human Rights are the principles that should be guaranteed to every person regardless of sex, age, income level, or race. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was ratified on December 16, 1949 by the UN, after the atrocities committed during World War II. It was the first global expression of rights to which everyone is entitled to. The UDHR consists of thirty articles which range from the principles of equality and liberty, to the right to life and the abolishment of sl...

Recently, I was invited to lead a seminar designed to introduce students at Polytechnic Institute in Islamabad to the issues and methods of tackling harassment at their future workplaces. Although a climate scientist by profession, I opted to swim in unknown waters, what followed was most definitely an illuminating experience. Ensuring that my knowledge on the subject of harassment was up to speed I ‘googled’ what harassment meant. The first thing I found was a recent surve...

In this focus piece, Youth to End Sexual Violence explores the issue of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). From the blog: "My legs were completely numb and the pain between them was so intense. I wished I would die. I felt my poor mother hold me in her arms - my memory ends at this instant until I opened my eyes and the killer woman was gone. I was lying on the ground close to a rock, and my legs were tied together with strips of cloth binding me from my ankles to my hips so I could not move..."

"My legs were completely numb and the pain between them was so intense. I wished I would die. I felt my poor mother hold me in her arms - my memory ends at this instant until I opened my eyes and the killer woman was gone. I was lying on the ground close to a rock, and my legs were tied together with strips of cloth binding me from my ankles to my hips so I could not move. I turned my head towards the rock - it was drenched with blood as if an animal had been slaughtered there. I saw...my meat -...

It’s been 4 months since the last time I posted my article on VOY. I’ve been feeling too busy going through my maturation process. I’m talking here as me, as what I’ve been feeling, how do I see myself and not based on someone’s feeling or point of view. As I’ve been growing up, there are so many things have changed in the way I see myself, from a teenage girl to a young woman, from the sensitive one to be more logical, concern of my body shape and changes also occur in...
