Male Gender Stereotypes: Hatch WorkshopPublished on Mar 19, 2015 Drawing inspiration from Common Sense Media, this workshop's mission was to examine male gender stereotypes perpetuated by the media, and explain what kids think it means to “be a man.” SheKnows Media's Hatch program creates content for grown-ups, made by kids on a mission.

Charlie's mother says misinformation on transgender issues is common. ==== Ceciliawyu commented "dresscode" "Yes Indeed!!

Biographer Walter Isaacson, author of the new book "The Innovators," explains how innovations such as chat rooms, blogs, and social media all serve the purpose of engendering community. He then predicts how new technologies will only serve to bring us closer together on the virtual stage. ================================================ JUST BREATH "Your blood keeps pumping because, like, you're really mad. And you start to get sweaty because you're getting really, really mad. And then when you start getting really mad, you turn red." Entirely un-scripted, this video was filmed on a Saturday afternoon with students of Citizens of the World Charter School in Mar Vista, California, and their families. These 6-year old kids began learning mindfulness techniques in Kindergarten and can teach us all a thing or two about coping with difficult emotions.

"To be fully human is really to discover who I am... To discover who I am is to discover also the unity between my head and my heart." Jean Vanier answers some "big questions" including "what does it mean to be fully human" - questions that are the hallmark of the Templeton Prize. Vanier is the 2015 Templeton Prize Laureate for his work with L'Arche, a revolutionary international network of communities where people with and without intellectual disabilities live and work together as peers. "To become fully human is to let down the barriers, to open up and discover that every person is beautiful."
Dear VOICES OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE & Vinanti,
Today is International Women's Day, which is a day we call attention not only to the achievements of women but to the fight for equality around the world. The Feminist Majority has been standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Afghan women and girls in the fight against Taliban oppression for 18 years. Since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001, many Afghan women and girls are going to school, have entered the paid workforce, and have benefited from a significantly reduced maternal mortality rate. But the Taliban has not gone entirely away and is threatening constantly women and girls' advancement and security. We must remain shoulder-to-shoulder with Afghan women and girls.
Many Afghan women leaders as well as ordinary Afghans are saying their number one concern is security, and they want the remaining U.S. support troops to stay. We support the Afghan women's groups concerns. This is no time to leave Afghanistan completely when women and girls are making progress and the new unity government, pledged to women's empowerment, is trying to move forward.
President Obama is right now reviewing his decision to withdraw 5,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2015 and ALL troops by the end of 2016. Afghan women and girls have come too far to be turned back now. If the Taliban returns, too many of the women who have gone to work and school and who have taken on leadership in government or in the several hundred established Afghan women's groups, will be killed. We must stand shoulder-to-shoulder with these courageous women.
This International Women's Day, tell President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Congress that the U.S. must not abandon Afghan women and girls who need and want security. Let’s help Afghan women protect the gains they have won.
For women's lives and equality,
President, Feminist Majority
Happy International Women's Day!
The Center for Women's Global Leadership salutes women all over the world, from different classes, cultures, races and identities, for continuing to advocate for human rights in the face of an increasingly challenging global environment. Two thousand and fourteen was a year with further increases in national and global inequality, escalation in militarism and armed conflict, numerous natural disasters and an overall shrinking of democratic space. As always, women rose to the challenge, bearing witness to structural, systemic and personal violence, and fiercely standing up for the rights of women, girls and indeed all humanity. We lost some sisters in 2014 to war, accidents and illness, but their legacies are carried forward by others, women and men, whose lives they transformed.
In 2014 we saw again the power of women's resilience to withstand and overcome obstacles in our collective march for an equal, just, peaceful and harmonious world. CWGL is proud to be a part of this inspiring women's movement. We celebrate the diversity, strengths and wisdom of women and pledge to continue our support for the full realization of human rights for all.
We wish you a happy International Women's Day and look forward to marching with you!
