Your girl child is precious says Haryana through this selfie with daughter pr... “Beti bachao, selfie banao”. One of the latest words inducted into the English language has found its place in the lexicon of the residents of the Bibipur village panchayat of Haryana. The village sarpanch has asked people to send in their pictures along with their daughters as part of an initiative to uplift women. The first half of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Beti bachao, Beti padhao” initiative is arguably most needed in the state of Haryana, where the sex ratio is known to favour the male child. Sarpanch of Bibipur, Sunil Jaglan, with his daughter “Since becoming sarpanch, I have tried to extend my help to causes like female foeticide over the past five years,” says Sunil Jaglan, sarpanch of Bibipur, to The News Minute. Haryana’s sex ratio of 879 women to 1000 men is among the lowest in the country according to Census data from 2011. On 14 July 2012, Jaglan had organised something unique. Bibipur’s plight has been a bit unique too. All pictures courtesy Sunil Jaglan
17 Ridiculously Sexist Ads That Actually Existed There was a time in the history of the United States where groups of people weren’t treated as equals. We have witnessed various atrocities committed in the US, most of which will never be equaled. However, some people might not realize the slow, insulting battle that women have been fighting over the decades against their male counterparts. There was a time when sexism was so rampant, ads like the ones seen below were considered completely normal… 1.) Bless your heart, honey, because this is completely condescending. 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.) 10.) 11.) 12.) 13.) 14.) 15.) 16.) 17.) So, here’s what those ads are telling us: women are objects, they’re only good for cooking and it’s completely acceptable to beat them for doing a bad job. Just a few decades ago, the US was kind of a scary place. (H/T BuzzFeed) Share these crazy ads with others by clicking below.
Le sexisme dans la publicité en 45 affiches surprenantes Thème encore bien présent dans la société, le sexisme est une forme de discrimination de plus en plus critiquée mais toujours aussi présente. Inutile dès lors d'imaginer que la publicité n'ait pas eu un rôle dans la diffusion de clichés sexistes. La ménagère, la soumise, l'objet sexuel, autant de représentation de la femme qui ont connu un âge d'or dans la publicité d'antan. Mais le sexisme publicitaire fait-il vraiment parti que du passé ? La femme soumise C'est étonnant de commencer par cette catégorie, mais c'est un choix volontaire car parmi toutes les pubs sexistes vintage que j'ai pu voir, ce sont sûrement celles qui m'ont le plus interloqué.

Zun Lee: Father Figure examines black fathers who are invested in raising the... Zun Lee Zun Lee didn't set out to create a photography series that shattered the stereotype of black men as menacing, absentee fathers. Instead, Lee began “Father Figure,” a study of black men in positive relationships with their children, as a personal journey. A decade ago, Lee discovered his biological father was a black man with whom his mother had a brief relationship. Lee was raised in Germany by his Korean mother and her husband, a man Lee assumed was his biological father, and who was also extremely abusive. Once Lee learned the truth about his biological father, he felt pain and rejection from the man he never met. As a photographer, Lee had focused primarily on street photography, but he began working on “Father Figure” after he was encouraged during a photography workshop to try to tackle a long-form project. Lee found the fathers profiled in the series through friends and social media. Building relationships and trust with the families is paramount to Lee’s work.
"The Female Economy" by Nena Stoiljkovic Exit from comment view mode. Click to hide this space WASHINGTON, DC – Today, women own roughly 35% of small and medium-size enterprises in developing countries, and make up approximately 40% of the global workforce. Women’s consumer spending is projected to reach $28 trillion globally in 2014. And yet recent research by the World Bank Group documented discrepancies between treatment of women and men in 102 of 141 countries surveyed – policies and practices that severely limit women’s economic opportunities. Gender-based barriers to investment not only put women at a disadvantage; they also reduce the entire economy’s growth potential. Three fundamental and interrelated gender-specific challenges must be addressed to make countries’ investment climate more woman-friendly. To be sure, the investment climate in some countries is slowly becoming more responsive to women entrepreneurs’ needs. But women entrepreneurs need better access to finance.
Pubs Texas Judge Denies Two Gay Dads Parental Rights to Their Biological Twin Sons... Jason and Joe each biologically fathered one of the twins, and the boys–who are half-brothers–share an egg donor. The fathers and their boys make up a loving family. However, the state of Texas refuses to acknowledge them as such. Neither Jason nor Joe are listed as fathers on either of their sons’ birth certificates, which the men have not been able to see. In Texas, as in 17 other states, the law is “unclear” as to whether LGBT parents can jointly adopt, meaning such family protections vary from judge to judge or county to county. “It’s astonishing that in our country, in 2014, loving parents can still be denied basic legal protections for their own children,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.
