Last Monday while one of my friends was travelling by bus, a man in his fifties sat next to her. Within a few minutes he had started brushing his shoulders against her, and later he had touched her knee. When she felt uncomfortable, she had moved to another seat without complaining. In another incident, a girl was asked by a guy on a crowded bus to sleep with him; however, when he touched her hand she slapped him. Further, a girl said that whenever someone comes closer and clos...

So many people hate LGTB people. But why? Why make someone's life a living hell because you are something. It's like picking on somebody and creating a world wide hate to someone that has brown hair.

Hello everyone.. My first reblog on VOY is going to be a recent post I read written by the blogging intern Maria (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/users/227642).The subject of the post is the rights of LGBT people. And to be honest with you, this post is to express my feelings about this subject. LGBT people are a community that has faced racism, discrimination and prejudice over the years. Even though we live in 2014, in the 21st century, many people still spread hate towards...

How many times have women been stepped over? How many times have YOU been stepped over because you are a girl? How many times have you been seen as a sexual object? How many times have you LET others step over you because you are a girl? As the years come and go, and the world " evolves " there has been an alarming issue remaining, and it has not ceded -to be honest- it has grown. That issue is the lack of respect, and following of women's and girls rights. We see that women...

Pondering about life and our actions, I discovered that the responsibility to make a sincere change in our generation lies deep within each of us. We make our own path in life, we decide our own fates, we decide what we want out of life simply because we are all free willed beings, but ponder on this. Great powers comes with great responsibilities and that's why we all need to take full responsibilities of what we do with what God has given to us (our giftings / talents). Just as we have the...

See Me Not Poverty The notion is simple – look beyond poverty to really see the human being you are dealing with. As simplistic as it sounds I really feel that this mentality fails to be adopted by the mass. For example, most people feel pity and sorrow for the victims of poverty we see in UNICEF or Save the Children adverts but aside from the sadness do we really think about who the person displayed in front of us is. Do we think about their hopes and dreams? Do we think b...
