A Chinese girl from one of the Japanese Army’s ‘comfort battalions’ awaits interrogation at a camp in Rangoon - 8 August 1945. The term “comfort women” was a euphemism used to describe women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War II.
There are exactly three countries on Earth that do not provide guarantees for paid maternity leave. Papua New Guinea and Swaziland are two of them. Care to guess the third?
“Women are forced to put their careers and financial future at risk simply because they want to have children. During their pregnancy, they face being fired unfairly or not being able to properly care for themselves. They should not have to worry about making ends meet without paid maternity leave on top of that.”
America’s attitude toward women and mothers really pisses me off.
qui è prevista la maternità ma o non assumono donne, per evitare di pagare i sostituti durante il periodo, o la licenziano appena rimane incinta, tanto avevi un cococo,partime,partitaiva,stage,collaborazione,boh e no non è proprio come negli Usa ma ci arriveremo.
I think we found out how cancer is made.
a mini value meal made entirely from powder.
the future is scaring me
We should extinct ourselves right now
under the guise of, more commonly known as capitalism, free market, and neoliberalism.
We talk about neo-imperialism a lot in my anthro class, and people are like “wat no it’s all good.”
Sweden should be on this map, too!
Murky business going on, with two swedish journalists, Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson, who were investigating Lundin Petroleums possible crimes against international laws, now sentenced to eleven years in Ethiopian prison, acused of terrorcrime. Carl Bildt should figure with his own flag here..
Fukushima- Inside the Meltdown
This radiating death dread disaster really chills my human spine. I remember very vividly, this global event last March 11, 2011. I was not even a full month into my 7 month live in New Zealand, and my new buddy roomate Francisco of Portugal, just finished watching a screening of the intense, Derrick Jensen inspired documentary END: CIV. with roughly 50-60 other strangers at a viewing sesh. at Otago Uni. Well, the first minute after the documentary ended, a stranger in the back told us all he had a grave announcement to make and from his smart phone he proceeded to inform us that literally, as we were watching the flick, Japan had just been rocked by a 9.0 Earthquake.
That night, and that week, and that month, and that trip, and this year somehow already, passed by, and I would only think about this tragic global act, if I reached that said kind of tragic thought somehow by accident, or in my most cynical moods. Out of sight, out of mind, as they say! (Invisible Gamma Rays. Invisible Radioactive Killer)
Until very recently I personally have, in a currently indescribable way, missed the full lesson this terrible, already year old event did bring. I cannot describe what I am trying to get at aside from just vaugely subjectively saying that when something so vividly impresses upon my mental matter (as this memory has shown me), during the constantly changing world unfolding, I know I have missed a lesson, but always in retrospect.
Can all you, or any of you very few, yet still beyond lovely unknown Tumblrs give me any and all of your strongest, most fascinating, most heart wrenching,most hopeful, most informative archives of information about this day I keep revisiting lately, and all that occurred during it? I meann… I like this BBC Inside the meltdown report, but I am very much interested in the still stubburnly ‘out of sight, out of mind mentality’ regarding the possible/probable future effects of the fallout, and/or fallouts to come ;(
