Dear girl, dear woman, I will begin with this; you are beautiful. You are gorgeous and no one can take this from you. Many times, women are not respected. From non-developed countries to sexism, many women are abused, both physically and mentally. As a result, they don't have confidence, they don't believe in themselves, their powers and their beauty and many fall into depression, or even worse, they commit suicide. Unfortunately, society has a big part of this tragedy. Even...

This is the second time I have posted this. I am posting it again because what I am talking about is very important to me and many other people.

I met Nadia Shahram who was leading a movement for Muslim women. After...

It's time for youth to talk about Sexual Violence. This past June, members of governments and civil society organisations joined forces at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. A delegation of youth was invited to attend and participate in summit discussions, where they were encouraged to rally the #YouthVoice on social media. The youth voice is 1.8 billion strong, so the task of representing youth at the Global Summit and rallying them by means of s...

Gender inequality is a major issue that has to be addressed urgently. It is happening nowadays (as EIGE in Europe proves with the Gender Inequality Index). Diversity is positive in every business or governmental institution. Therefore, companies are realising now how important is to embrace different points of view in their boards to be competitive in the markets. When it comes to governmental institutions -which are supposed to represent the citizens- can they truly represen...

It’s always with great surprise that I listen to people defending patriarchy. Even though most women would object to being denied access to professional spheres and having their opinions shut down because of their gender, most still happily go along with the idea that women, because of our physiological, psychological, or ‘God given’ differences with men, are the inferior gender. There are a lot of day to day conversations that I can bring up to explain my point, but it’s...

I learnt from my "Women Weave the Web" page, how young ladies from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Japan and other parts of the world join forces to affect the life of women in all endeavours. Also, the AWID, a non governmental organization, in South Africa, portrays the notion of feminism. I remember, when my mum stood behind me, when I came home with a cut on my head. Although I had caused the fight, she stood behind me no matter what. That is the trait of mothers today, to advocate. Every Mother will do t...
