A mysterious murder in a dystopian future leads a novice investigator to question what she’s learned about the foundation of her population-controlled society.
Read it because:
You want a page turner of a dystopian murder mystery, where women’s fertility is the key to society. A really enjoyable read.
A great post from Nadja about what women in politics must face daily an environment that includes the online violence and abuse whose aim is to shame, intimidate, degrade, belittle and silence women.
Georgina Dent in this article raises the fundamental issue – We do not treat domestic violence, and violence against women, with the same urgency with which we approach other threats. So what can we do to stem this haemorrhage?
So I’m a Library fan, I work in one, volunteer in others, take my child to many. (I even visit them when I’m on holiday).
But what gets me, is when the funding to them is cut. I’ve seen what a Library can do to children who can’t afford to access books any other way. I’ve seen the power of reading change lives….so when you cut funding, you cut off the equitable access to education and empowerment that often goes hand in hand with a Library service.
If you live in America – please, please sign up and Save your Public Library. Stop this nonsense right now.
Languages play a crucially important role in the daily lives of all peoples, with their complex implications for identity, cultural diversity, social integration, communication, education and development. Through languages, people not only embed their history, traditions, memory, unique modes of thinking, meaning and expression, but more importantly construct their future. Languages are pivotal in the areas of human rights protection, peace building and sustainable development, through ensuring cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue. However, despite their immense value, languages around the world continue to disappear at an alarming rate due to a variety of factors. Many of them are indigenous languages.
Indigenous languages in particular are a significant factor in a wide range of other indigenous issues, notably education, scientific and technological development, biosphere and the environment, freedom of expression, employment and social inclusion.
In response to these threats, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) adopted a Resolution (Ref. A/RES/71/178) on ‘Rights of Indigenous Peoples’, proclaiming 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages.
