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...

That issue is the lack of respect, and following of women's and girls rights. We see that women...

"I am a feminist, and a woman's right activist."

It is hard to believe that in the Western world there is anyone left who doesn't voluntarily claim the title of feminist, and wear it with pride. Surely everybody agrees that a world where all gen...

This year, women made great strides in career areas, world service and the global sector of humanity helping. Humanity helping? Making change! I really love this commercial that aired during the Golden Globes last weekend. I don't really have much else to say other than how wonderful it is. It features a song by Sara Bareilles called Brave. For your entertainment, I posted some of the lyrics below. Have fun with the video. And women, remember to be brave! Brave by Sara Bareille...
