Male Gender Stereotypes: Hatch Workshop

Published 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. Download the discussion guide here: http://www.sheknows.com/parenting/art... ================================================ Nine-year-old Charlie says she wants to be known for who she is rather than what her gender is. Charlie's mother says misinformation on transgender issues is common. ==== Ceciliawyu commented "dresscode" "Yes Indeed!! So too....there is no dress code when you RSVP to the Charter of Human rights either.... Choice and Freedom do not care if we are wearing a Mini or a Sari! -- " ================================================

P!NK - STUPID GIRLS ==== Music video by P!nk performing Stupid Girls. (C) 2006 Zomba Recording, LLC ================================================== Building Communities Around New Technology, with Walter Isaacson From the earliest internet message board to today's highly-watched speedruns on Twitch, digital technology has satiated the human need to connect, collaborate, and form communities. 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.

Box 3310 Winter Park, FL 32790-3310 United States Website Facebook Twitter Organizers Nina StreichExecutive Director Kelly DeVineArtistic Director  Martin Luther King, Jr posited that “Peace is not only the absence of conflict, but also the presence of justice.” Global Peace Film Festival draws together people from all walks of life to be inspired by compelling storytelling and for them then to engage actively within their own lives and communities to make the world a better place than they found it: Watch FIlms. Get Involved. Change Things. Action, engagement and participation are our bywords. We seek stories that make us laugh, think, cry, sit taller in our seats and ask, “What can I do?” We curate experiences pairing films and post-screening events that educate and motivate our audiences. We work closely with local community groups and impact producers to create space for progress and creativity to flourish. GPFF is not a passive exhibition event, but a commitment to building relationships and resources aimed at increasing the presence of justice year round. It starts here. Traditionally we kick the festival off with a rousing music or sports story to lift spirits and pump up the energy, and end with a film for our interfaith community partners that show the power of good works regardless of your affiliation. During the festival we have opportunities for select films and filmmakers to participate in screenings and discussions with area high school and college-level students. Additionally, we hold community screenings throughout the year featuring festival alumni, work with other festivals and educators around the world and present an online companion festival of shorts curated to provide a window into the festival for audiences unable to join in the event in person. Rules & Terms If a film is in a language other than English, it must have subtitles (or be dubbed into English) in order to be considered.

Dance of the Northern Lights from Alan Dyer on Vimeo.

VOICES OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE shares Indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com with this video: Watch the Aurora Borealis Undulate and Shine as it Enchants ICTMN Staff 3/15/15 They flash, they dance, they undulate and glitter. And they never fail to transport. We are talking, of course, about the Northern Lights, source of many an enchanting story and tantalizing scientific study. There is nothing quite like the aurora borealis for ethereal entertainment. Here, astrophotographer Alan Dyer has captured the mystical nature of the lights in a time-lapse sequence taken between February 12 to 21, 2015, from the Churchill Northern Studies Centre in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. The fish-eye lens he used—making it compatible with a domed planetarium projection screen, he noted in his comments—depending on how one looks at it, resembles either an eyeball, a curved storytelling moon, or Mother Earth herself. “Churchill's location at 58° North on the shore of Hudson Bay puts it directly under the main auroral oval, the zone of greatest auroral activity,” Dyer wrote in his comments. “Over the nine nights, two were cloudy, with a roaring blizzard, but on the eight clear nights we saw aurora every night. I shot time-lapses on six of those nights, shooting about 3,500 frames, most of which appear in the final cut of this movie.” For those of us who can’t get there anytime soon, this is a welcome taste of an otherworldly phenomenon.

"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."

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.

Please urge President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Congress to support postponement or extension of the US timeline for removing support troops from Afghanistan.

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,

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!

From the WECAN Team
Dear Friends and Allies, 

Today, as we celebrate International Women's Day, we reflect with great appreciation and respect upon the countless women leaders rising up worldwide in defense of the Earth and their communities. We recognize the immense challenges ahead and renew our commitment to amplifying women's voices and leadership in climate justice and solutions.


For the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network, 2015 has already proven to be a year of great change and opportunity. We began this year in the Democratic Republic of  Congo where we held an online training session, bringing together diverse participants to create an action plan for protection of the Itombwe rainforest and the Indigenous people who live there. In February, we gathered with thousands at the largest anti-fracking march in US history, calling for a ban on fracking in the state of California.


Read on for details surrounding our recent mobilizing efforts, profiles of women working on the front lines, and information on how to join women mobilizing for climate justice in the USA through our new national organizing calls. Sign up to join the calls here.

WECAN International Training: Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), 2015
https://files.ctctcdn.com/dfeba80f101/d40fa791-4c40-4223-99e7-6be66c14710b.jpg" border="0" vspace="5" />


In January 2015 , WECAN International, in conjunction with our partners from SAFECO in the DRC, brought together participants for the first session of a two-part training aimed at creating a climate action plan specific to the needs of the Indigenous communities of the Itombwe rainforest, who seek to protect the health of the forest and their communities. The second part of the training is currently underway on the ground in the Itombwe region.


Sessions focus on tangible solutions that maintain diverse ecosystems and Traditional Ecologic Knowledge (TEK) of the region's Indigenous people. Participants also learn about current environmental laws that better equip them with the tools necessary to form and carry out an effective advocacy plan. Hands-on information on reforestation efforts, the construction of clean cookstoves, advocacy techniques, and the importance of women's leaderships form the backbone of the training.


We are very thankful to our DRC partners at SAFECO and to all of the participants who made this training such a success. Click here to visit our blog and learn more about the climate solution training and collaborative plans moving forward.
