Meet Ryan, my lawyer of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher who has been representing me through the whole campaign process. He became a lawyer because he cares about changing things for good. I talk about working with Ryan, what it's like campaigning, why the assumption that being into fashion or makeup = superficial needs to die (I like a strong brow ~and~ politics) and how social media aided my campaign, with @emmagannonuk on the latest episode of her excellent podcast Ctrl Alt Delete. I will warn you, though, I screamed 'YAY' at the beginning and speak at about 5,000mph because I was so excited - but go and have a listen!
MWNUK are delighted to confirm that we are official partners of Care International UK's #March4Women this year, taking place on Sunday 4th March in London.
March with us and 1000's of other people for gender equality and justice.
This year marks 100 years since (some) women in the UK first got the vote. Yet, here in the UK and around the world, women are still too often subjected to #sexism, #abuse, #harassment or #violence. Every woman and girl deserves to live, work and learn in safety, with dignity and respect.
Let's make this year's march one to remember: the more of us turn out, the louder our voices, the harder we are to ignore!
When: 12.00 – 3.00pm on Sunday 4th March 2018
Where: exact route to be confirmed; finishing at Trafalgar Square, #London
Who: Sue Perkins, Helen Pankhurst, Sadiq Khan, Bianca Jagger and our very own Executive Director Faeeza Vaid. More speakers to be announced.
How: MWNUK are organising 2 coaches from #Birmingham & #Blackburn, get in touch for more details and/or click here to register: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/transport-from-birmingham-to-london-for-the-march4women-2018-tickets-43172423882
exactly. this specifically has to do with women in Romania. all i remember seeing on the news while growing up was about how women were killed or raped after leaving their abusive husbands. the violence against women that is continuously normalized in Romania is toxic and unacceptable. it’s come to the point where women aren’t taken seriously when it comes to abusive relationship. it’s come to the point where women choose to accept this abusive behavior towards them. it’s come to the point where people only blame the woman for not leaving earlier. it’s fucking disgusting and that’s why i’m afraid to grow up and marry a Romanian man. the system tolerates violence against women and it needs to stop. - S
exact. acest lucru are în special legătură cu femeile din România. tot ce îmi amintesc văzând la știri în timp ce creșteam era despre felul în care femeile au fost ucise sau violate după ce și-au părăsit soții abuzivi. violența împotriva femeilor normalizată continuu în România este toxică și inacceptabilă. a ajuns la punctul în care femeile nu sunt luate în serios atunci când vine vorba de relații abuzive. a ajuns la punctul în care femeile aleg să accepte acest comportament abuziv față de ele. a ajuns la punctul în care oamenii dau vina doar pe femeie pentru că nu a plecat mai devreme. este dezgustător și de aceea mi-e teamă să cresc și să mă căsătoresc cu un bărbat român. sistemul tolerează violența împotriva femeilor și trebuie să se oprească.
