Quoted @upulie

New Zealand just made contraception for women completely free; and officials say that it’s as much about preventing uterine cancers and other health issues; so it’s actually about *reducing* the cost to the public health system overall. Remarkable

What would we all discover if women (& men who care about misogyny & unconscious bias) stopped re-tweeting & responding to male tweeps & only responded to women for 24 hours?

Serious question - who’s in? Please RT & follow more women tweeps and we’ll set a date. #StatusBRO

Let's do this!

A letter no woman should have to write: "Dear Scott Morrison, I am so scared my ex-husband will kill me I keep a notebook marked 'for the coroner'"

When will we stop playing politics with the lives of women and children?

Women do not get raped because of their clothes.

Women do not get raped because of their attitude.

Women do not get raped because of their morals.

Women do not get raped because of anything they did wrong.

Women get raped because men choose to rape them.

While few may shed a tear @UN employees doing without heating and AC and having their travel restricted, the cash flow problem does impact on the ability of the UN to serve those vulnerable populations who need us most #unitednations

Oh COME ON @EconomicTimes!

Apparently "his wife", also known as Esther Duflo, is the youngest ever recipient of a Noble in Economics and only the 2nd woman. But no, reduce her to her relationship with a man.

I have heard evidence from front-line domestic violence services that women are telling them offenders are feeling emboldened by the inquiry and by the media commentary that women are liars.

Quoted @SatPaper

Do #21fathers commit suicide every week due to divorce or separation from their families? @JaneTribune on the facts behind the figures that motivate men's rights groups and Pauline Hanson:

Great nuanced article. Male suicide is an epidemic that deserves attention. But spreading false stats on the causes doesn't do anyone any favours.

"Young women and girls are tuned into the big issues. They know that the key issues preventing girls around the world from achieving their dreams are sexism, violence, discrimination and lack of education and opportunities to lead." @NStottDespoja

"until female norms and standards are seen as every bit as valuable and aspirational as those of men, we will never achieve equality"

So true - we work in a system designed for men, by men. Telling women to be more like men solves nothing.

“Often they are not feeling anger at all but that’s the only safe emotion to feel because if they stop believing in gender roles, their whole world starts to crumble".

This is why it is important to teach our sons it is ok to express their emotions

Quoted @SheRatesDogs

What in the incel fuck

"She had no reason to be frightened. I wasn't gonna do anything". So what, women are supposed to individually assess the men that follow them to judge whether they are likely to be raped? Newsflash: decent guys don't follow women or girls.
