Avis du Haut Conseil à l’Égalité entre les femmes et les hommes sur le harcèlement sexiste et les violences sexuelles dans les transports en commun : une contribution essentielle aux politiques publiques

Kenya's unique approach to rape prevention should have the rest of the world taking note.

Schoolgirls were frequently raped by friends and boyfriends. Clothes have been torn from women's bodies in public. Here's what they did. In 2010, the group No Means No Worldwide began offering self-defense classes to Nairobi schoolgirls, teaching them how to fight back against rape. In its early stages, the program focused on providing women in the poorest parts of Kenya with self-defense skills. After launch, program founders worked to develop Your Moment of Truth, a separate program for boys. During early No Means No sessions, girls told instructors that the biggest problems were the boys themselves. The program learned that many boys believed it's justifiable to rape girls who are out alone after dark, wear miniskirts, or are taken on expensive dates. Rape by friends and boyfriends dropped by 20% in schools teaching the Your Moment of Truth program.

Cette orientation le distingue nettement des autres musées consacrés aux femmes et à leur histoire. «Nous voulons nous inscrire dans différentes perspectives: à grande échelle, avec notamment, les relations entre les sexes et le pouvoir, et à une échelle individuelle, en laissant une grande part aux objets et aux histoires», poursuit-elle. Installé dans une capitale européenne en 2014, et proche du cercle polaire, le musée a pour ambition de faire entendre la voix des femmes, et de «décrire et provoquer les idées, les normes et les structures qui limitent aujourd'hui les choix et possibilités des femmes et des hommes». Elle compte associer des chercheurs et créer «un musée vivant», un lieu de rencontres et de débat. L'entrée est gratuite. Salma Hayek Changed Her Mind About Being A Feminist.

But now it seems the actress has changed her mind. Ahead of presenting her newest animated film at the Women of the World Festival over the weekend, Hayek spoke to The Guardian about the “passion project” and also elaborated on why she does, in fact, consider herself a feminist. The Mexican star may be known for her work on films like Oscar-nominated “Frida” and the iconic “From Dusk Till Dawn,” but Hayek has also helped empower women worldwide by co-founding “Chime for Change” in 2013, along with Beyoncé and fashion designer Frida Giannini.

"Chime for Change" is a global campaign that develops and raises funds for projects promoting health, education and justice for women. A few days before closing off the Women of the World Festival on Sunday, Hayek expressed her updated views on feminism and how it applies to her life. The 12 Most Powerful Feminist Hashtags of 2014.

The 12 Most Powerful Feminist Hashtags of 2014

Despite being disproportionately at risk for abuse and harassment online, women proved the real power of social media this year, utilizing it for thoughtful conversations about inequality and social change. If we needed a sign feminism is reaching a turning point online, the runaway success of hashtags like #YesAllWomen is it. Working with Tara L. Conley from Hashtag Feminism, Mic has ranked the year's biggest feminist hashtag based on five not-so-scientific criteria: its trending power, either nationally or globally; its national online and/or independent news media attention; its sustainability; its impact on social, political and cultural issues offline; and its influence with notable Twitter users and thought leaders in social media and feminist spaces.
