Ending Violence Against Women and Girls
 
07:24
This three-lesson course addresses the marginalization and unique challenges facing women and girls - from gender discrimination and inequality in education to a lack of opportunity in business to assaults on their safety and dignity from gender-based violence. The course offers practical steps for individuals in business, government, and civil society to take to alleviate these challenges and empower female populations politically, socially, and economically. Gender-based violence is a global epidemic. It crosses every social and economic class, ethnicity, race, religion, and education level, and transcends international borders. This lesson covers the facts and consequences surrounding violence against women and girls, the responsibility that men have in preventing gender-based violence, and the necessary and practical approaches to ending it.

Inside Story - Are Afghanistan's Hazaras marginalised?
 
24:41
The Hazara protesters demanded that the planned route for the 500 kV transmission line linking Turkmenistan with Kabul be changed to pass through two provinces with large Hazara populations, an option the government says would cost millions of dollars and delay the badly needed project by years. It says the current plan ensures that the two provinces of Bamyan and Wardak will get ample electricity even if the main transmission line does not pass through them directly. It has now been postponed while a government review is held. The Hazaras are an ethnic minority in Afghanistan who have long complained of discrimination. The protests are also shining a light on the Hazaras long-running grievances. So, are the Hazaras really discriminated against in Afghanistan? Or are they being manipulated by outside influences? Presenter: Folly Bah Thibault Guests: Habib Wardak - good governance and anti-corruption activist Rohullah Yakobi - associate fellow at the Human Security Centre; a Hazara who fled Afghanistan at the age of 12 Thomas Ruttig - co-director of the Afghanistan Analysts Network More from Inside Story on: YouTube - http://aje.io/insidestoryYT Facebook - https://facebook.com/AJInsideStory Twitter - https://twitter.com/AJInsideStory Website - http://aljazeera.com/insidestory/

Transgender Women and Work: Alexis
 
05:44
Being a transgender person in America is not easy. People that do not readily conform to the gender identity assigned to them at birth face marginalization, discrimination, persecution and even death. Over 20 transgendered people were murdered in 2015, and some polls indicate that up to 41% of the transgendered population in America has considered suicide, compared to 1.6% of the general population. After 14 years in the U.S. working as a server and then a manager in an ice cream parlor, Alexis lost her job. This was about the time she decided to start transitioning. Now she cannot afford to make rent, she cannot afford her hormones, and has been collecting bottles in order to make ends meet. We follow Alexis as she looks for jobs, and document her struggle with discriminatory hiring practices in New York City.

Being a transgender person in America is not easy. People that do not readily conform to the gender identity assigned to them at birth face face marginalization, discrimination , persecution, and even death. Over 20 transgendered people were murdered in 2015, and some pools indicate that up to 41% of the transgendered population in America has considered suicide, compared to the 1.6% of the general population. This episode follows Tiffany, a black transgender woman who ran away from home as a teenager and quickly became embroiled in the life of a sex worker. We talk to her about her past, her years of running the streets, and her new but fragile life as a health outreach coordinator at The Center. But a full time career means that Tiffany will have to go back to school, and with the little money and rent to pay, the temptation to go back to sex work is a daily battle.

Marginalization of Teens
 
17:19
The U.S. Census claims that teenagers make up 13.5% of the population of the United States. Yet, we never hear from them. Our society shoves teenagers into a corner, stereotypes them, and teaches them to be seen and not heard. This needs to stop. This documentary film investigates the discrimination against teenagers through interviews. The interviewees include people of different ages, races, genders, and sexualities in order to collect as many opinions as possible about the struggles teenagers face today. This documentary film works to show that this type of marginalization and discrimination does not have to be a life sentence. Music: "Far Alone" by G-Eazy "Beat Connection" by Saola (Odesza Remix)

Doll test - The effects of racism on children (ENG)
 
02:45
The "doll test" is a psychological experiment designed in the 1940s in the USA to test the degree of marginalization felt by African American children caused by prejudice, discrimination and racial segregation. Given the considerable increase of the phenomenon of migration in Europe in recent years we decided to re-create the test with Italian children. In fact, thousands of migrants land each year on the Mediterranean coast in search of a better future, some to improve their economic conditions, others are political refugees, fleeing from war zones, discrimination and sometimes ethnic, religious or political persecution. 2015 was considered the year of the 'invasion' that threatened to wipe out social, economic and cultural balances in Europe. The increasingly close surveillance of borders and frontiers could determine, however, a risk to definitively annihilate any possibility of dialogue or integration. In every European country live many second, third and fourth generation migrants, who are now fully-fledged citizens of these nations, like these Italian children. Yet, for many, they remain 'different', 'foreigners', a dangerous definition that, in recent times, could be illegitimately paired with the phenomenon of terrorism. Without a serious political and social change in perspective, we risk dangerously distorting the perception we have of others, and the perception that others have of themselves.

Marginalised people suffer as war continues
 
05:41
(17 May 2016) LEAD IN: As the war continues in Yemen, a community known as 'the marginalised' are facing particular hardships. Long considered the country's underclass, the ongoing violence has worsened their already difficult situation. STORY-LINE: It's not the kind of environment where most parents would wish to raise their children. But these people have little choice. Yemen's "Muhammasheen" or "the Marginalised" are a dark-skinned ethnic group that for centuries has been consigned to the bottom of the country's social scale. Shunned and faced with discrimination, they live in shantytowns on the outskirts of cities. Hassan Mohammed Nagy and his family are part of a community that numbers anywhere between 500,000 and 3 million people. They fled here from Taiz. "We are marginalised; we have no value, when we complain no one listens to us," he says. The Muhammasheen are often refused schooling and work menial jobs like shoe-shining and street cleaning, or turn to begging. They have no tribe affiliation in a country where belonging to a tribe is vital for securing protection, status and livelihood. And as Yemen's civil war has worsened conditions for all citizens, the Marginalised community has been acutely affected. As airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition have shattered their makeshift homes, some families have been thrown into constant displacement with no one to take them in. Hakma Ahmed Said tidies the tented structure she now calls home. "We have no house, no sugar, no flour. We are sleeping in the streets. We have nothing," she complains. Official government statistics have put their population at around 500,000, but marginalised activists say they number around 3 million. UNICEF has estimated they amount to about 10 percent of the population, or 2.6 million. For generations, they have been treated as a permanent underclass. Yemenis call them unclean and tell their children not to mingle with them. They are traditionally called the "Akhdam," or "servants." "The state is practising discrimination against us on all levels from employment to residence. The street is humiliating us and deals with us with degradation," says Yahia Saleh Said, head of the Yemeni Organisation Against Discrimination. Taiz has the largest number of marginalised groups, according to UNICEF. In a 2014 survey, it found high levels of poverty and low levels of education, all far worse than national averages. Only half the children were in school, 80 percent of the adults and nearly 52 percent of 10-14-year-olds were illiterate. More than half the children under one year old had not been immunised. But many of the marginalised families have now fled this area. The buildings have been battered by airstrikes with some now uninhabitable. Hossn Salem sorts through the rubble. "What remains today from the marginalised people's houses is just memories of the past in return for what they suffer from today," she says. Members of the marginalised community have been forced to take shelter in a school building. A mother and daughter complete school work - it could be a long time before formal lessons return to this place. Mesk Mohammed, an activist, says the building is "not appropriate" for the marginalised. "The main dangers are based on their health due to the polluted water that they collect from the rain which results in the spread of the diseases and epidemics that aggravate their problems," she explains. As the rain buckets down, life in this makeshift camp continues. A child washes clothes in the downpour. "The suffering of marginalised people will not stop if no one will look after their needs and concerns," says Mansour Kaid, a marginalised person.

People and Power - Tunisia's Dirty Secret
 
25:01
In January 2011, driven to despair by high unemployment, food inflation, corruption, a lack of political freedom and poor living conditions, Tunisians ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and introduced democracy to their country. As the celebrations of this remarkable achievement began to quieten down, people got ready to enjoy the benefits of liberty - especially those to do with fairness, human rights and equality. And indeed, many of those benefits did follow; even though many Tunisians continue to feel economically marginalised and the country faces security problems, for the most part the repression that was such of feature of the Ben Ali years has gone. Tunisia is widely regarded as one of the few successes of the Arab Spring. But not all Tunisians would agree. Five years on from the revolution, the country's large black minority - roughly about 15 percent of the population - say they have yet to fully experience the freedoms that their fellow citizens enjoy. They say that racial abuse and discrimination are still widespread in a society that is supposed to have done away with inequity and prejudice - and that the authorities are failing to take action.

Men beats a Women -The violation of women’s fundamental
 
01:46
The violation of women’s fundamental rights through physical, mental, emotional, and sexual violence against women has become almost commonplace in the Indian context. Violence against women has taken particularly acute forms in circumstances where populations are already marginalized, such as in areas affected by armed conflict, areas undergoing mass displacement. Women in the Tribal belts and amongst Dalit populations are already vulnerable, and become even more so in areas affected by conflict. There is therefore a pressing need for the judiciary to recognize and address the particular forms of violence levied against women who are ‘doubly marginalised’ by caste, class, religion, or in situations conflict. Customary routinely laws discriminate against women, both by denying justice to victims of violence and by dispossessing women from their shares in land and property. A number of laws that protect women from discrimination have also either inadequate, or have not been properly implemented. HRLN has been intimately connected with the women’s movement for over two decades. The Women’s Justice Initiative (WJI) is our national network of lawyers and social activists, using the law to oppose all forms of gender-based discrimination and violence against women and to increase women's access to the justice system as a vital means to their empowerment.

Salary Disparities in Gov’t Institutions
 
03:43
Cases of marginalization and discrimination cut across almost every organization in Uganda, including government institutions. This is one of the factors that explain the high level of corruption among government officials and income inequalities among people of same qualifications doing work of equal value. To the equal opportunities Commission, salary and wage disparity especially in government institutions is one of the mostly reported cases with clear documents to explain. It is against this background that the five-member team led by Silvia Muhebwa Ntabi is determined to carry out a research and release a report on the matter within the first 100 days in their office. Muhebwa says this is just one of the major marginalization issues that the commission is set to handle in the first 100 days. The commission is also to focus on discrimination at work places. Suleiman Madada, the minister for the elderly says even when Uganda is a capitalistic state, the Equal Opportunities commission should strike a balance where people are treated equally especially if they are doing work of the same value. Now that the Equal Opportunities Commission has committed its self to fight alary disparities, the Civil Society organizations say they should be answerable to the public. The commission has to this effect launched a toll free number to receive all marginalized and discrimination related cases and deliver justice to victims.

Religion and development - Rick James
 
10:00
This video accompanies the GSDRC Professional Development Reading pack on Religion and Development available here: http://www.gsdrc.org/professional-dev/religion-and-development/ Why would you want to mix religion with development? They appear to be completely different things – at best incompatible; at worst highly combustible. After all some strands of religion have an overtly political agenda, while other strands promote or condone violence, including terrorism. In some instances religions promote discrimination against women, children and other marginalised groups. Many religious communities have an evangelising agenda. It is unsurprising, therefore, that the aid system has sought to keep a safe separation between religion and development.

DISCUSSION: Gender equality and women's economic empowerment
 
07:29
We are well into women's month with sharp focus on gender equality and women economic empowerment. This week President Jacob Zuma commended struggle stalwarts of the iconic 1956 march for opening up the leadership space for all women. And AU Commission chairperson Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma called on young women to become drivers of transformation. Women's Month in South Africa, pays homage to the women of our nation; - the mothers, the wives, the sisters and the daughters who fought tirelessly against the tyranny of the Apartheid government. But to date many disparities continue to marginalize women from greater participation in the economy. The severe under representation of women in various economic sectors and in decision making positions in the private sector demonstrate,a the need for urgent intervention to improve the status of women in our society. Pindile Mooketsi is a manager at Komati Plant and author of Leadership Navigation. For more news, visit: http://www.sabc.co.za/news

Violence against Women is a daily occurrence in Nigeria - Secretary General, WRAPA
 
03:01
The National Assembly needs to be more proactive in proposing bills that would protect women’s rights and also, ensure the bills are passed into law as women rights activists are on the rising. Today, speaking at Barcelona Hotel on women's violation and gender inequality, the secretary General, Women's Rights Advancement and protection Alternative (WRAPA) said that Nigeria is yet to live up to its commitments and promises in fighting violence against women. She said "Nobody can deny not to have experience violence in one way or the other it’s either your affected or infected, when a woman activist express her feelings on how she has been molested, it looks like she is over exaggerating". Nigeria has no excuse for a lot of things that has evaded in the country such as marginalisation of women, women trafficking, early marriage and many more. "We need to go back to the National Assembly and plead for appropriation and implementation of these laws to be fully passed" she added. We need to face this fact because it is a reality and this has haunted so many souls to their early grave. Violence against women, discrimination is a daily activity that occurs in our society.

CITIZENS CELEBRATE TRANSFORMATIVE MOMENT IN IRELAND’S HISTORY PARADE with FREE OPEN AIR PAGEANT AND CONCERT Merrion Square at 2pm, setting out for the GPO at 3pm April 24, 2016 Join Panti Bliss, Fionnuala Flanagan, Adrian Dunbar, Donal Lunny, Damien Dempsey, Don Baker, Frances Black, Laoise Kelly, Sibéal Ní Chasaide Tomorrow, Sunday, April 24th the girls from Craobh O’Toole’s GAA club, Donnycarney, lead off the Reclaim 1916 parade from Merrion Square at 2pm. They carry our specially designed images of the Proclamation’s signatories to the GPO where actor Adrian Dunbar hosts a festival of music, dance and readings. Renowned actors, musicians, dancers join community groups, housing action networks, people trapped in direct provision, Travellers, women’s organisations, the Rossport community, the anti-war movement, LGBTI campaigns and Palestinian, Syrian and Kurdish support groups in Reclaim’s final initiative, a parade and open-air pageant and concert. Chief patron of this citizens’ initiative, artist Robert Ballagh, says: “We’re delighted that Reclaim the Vision of 1916 culminates in this chance for all citizens of Ireland, including the forgotten, the ignored, marginalised and discriminated against, to gather together to celebrate a transformative moment in our history. “The government’s military parade this Easter Monday provided no such chance. Many people living in Ireland who had a right to be there, were excluded from that event. Reclaim 1916 corrects this injustice. We are reclaiming the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who fought in 1916. They weren’t mere rebels, they were visionaries calling for revolution and a complete transformation of Irish society. “Our parade and free open-air pageant and concert have created a platform for a republic that successive governments have failed to deliver: a republic of equality and opportunity with nobody marginalised, left behind or forgotten or forced through economic circumstance to flee the country of their birth,” says Ballagh. Adrian Dunbar and Fionnuala Flanagan, with Panti Bliss and Stephen Murphy, give readings. Musician Donal Lunny plays a piece he composed for the occasion. Singers include Don Baker, Frances Black and Damien Dempsey. Sibéal Ní Chasaide, who wowed viewers of RTE’s Centenary programme with her haunting rendition of Mise Éire, will also perform. Award-winning uilleann piper Tiarnain Ó Duinchinn, harpists Laoise Kelly and Michelle Mulcahy, and flautist Emer Mayock join them. Sean-nós dancer Sibéal Davitt is sure to keep the crowd on their toes! This festival is the final event in the Reclaim 1916 programme. Reclaim the Vision of 1916 is a civil society group of artists, academics, trade unionists, community activists, journalists and other interested citizens who believe Ireland can be reinvigorated by the ideals of the signatories of the Proclamation. The festival on April 24 is our final commemorative initiative. See www.reclaim1916.ie or like us on Facebook. Video © Paula Geraghty

Caste Discrimination keeps Dalit children at bay from schools
 
02:46
In Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh, a primary school accommodates students from nearby villages. Among them is Mansi, a student of class two. Mansi has a startling revelation: the principal forced her to dispose of the carcas of a puppy. When she refused to do so she was brutally caned. That is not all, she is also regularly made to sweep the school premises. Investigation reveals that many children like Mansi are forced to perform menial tasks like this in school. The reason? They belong to the Dalit community. Mansi’s story is not unique or an aberration. According to UNICEF Dalit girls have the highest rate of exclusion from school due to social discrimination. 51% Dalit children drop out of elementary school as opposed to 37% children from non-Dalit and non-Adivasi communities. The state’s self-congratulatory rhetoric of reducing overall illiteracy and dropout rates hides the murky underbelly of caste discrimination that makes access to education a distant dream for most children from marginalised communities. This, despite the 86th amendment to the Constitution which makes free education for children up to the age of fourteen a fundamental right. Further, the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act which came into force in 2010 specifically mentions that schools are duty bound to ‘to ensure that children belonging to disadvantaged group ( i.e. SC/ST ) are not discriminated against and prevented from pursuing and completing elementary education on any grounds’.

A Struggle of Woman | Reena Ramteke reports for IndiaUnheard
 
04:12
India has entered into a new millennium, termed as the development phase but from the dawn of civilization till today but women under the patriarchal society of India continue to be oppressed and ill-treated. A woman is subjugated – dependent, weak, exploited and faces gender discrimination in every sphere of life. Domestic violence has become a punishable offense in India only a decade back when the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act was implemented in 2005. However, deep-seated patriarchal mindset and acceptance of domestic violence against women hampers the law from protecting a woman, who suffers various forms of violence – physical and mental, across social, cultural, economic and regional boundaries. Even as we promote various initiatives like Women empowerment, Beti Bachao yojana, our society continues to treat gender-based violence that threatens the well-being, dignity and rights of women as a norm of life. Statistics show that crimes against women have more than doubled over the past ten years but experts in women movements such as Dr Ranjana Kumari, Director, Centre for Social Research (CSR) point out that the numbers are still understated due to unreported cases, poor maintenance of records, lack of awareness among the public among other factors. This story of Savita (name changed) adds to the many numbers of unreported cases of Domestic Violence. Savita got married to her partner after a relationship of four years in Gariyaband district of Chhattisgarh. But her life changed completely after marriage. Her husband and in-laws would abuse her under the influence of alcohol, beat her up and harass her. Her troubles got even worse when she discovered she was pregnant. “My husband tried to force me to abort with medicines when I was six months pregnant, but it didn’t work,” she says. Her torment worsened after she delivered a baby girl. Things got ugly during an altercation when Savita’s husband tried strangulating her to death. “I ran from there to save my life and went to my parent’s place. I stay there now with my child,” Savita tells Video Volunteers correspondent Reena. When Savita went to register a complain under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005, the police refused to register stating that it was a merely a domestic dispute. “I had repeatedly appraoched police to report the cases of domestic violence against me but everytime I was met with denial to file a report,” says Savita. In India, every hour 10 women suffer physical, verbal and psychological abuse by their husbands or relatives; and many more such incidents go unreported . The incidents are not only limited to the marginalised community but extend to women from all walks of life . Help Savita win her fight towards prejudice by the police and her in-laws. Help her and her child get justice. Call the Superintendent of Police of the Gariyaband, Chhattisgarh on +91-7706241991 and build pressure to recognize Savita’s struggle and help her get justice.

That makes holding a fashion show with female models a risky endeavor. But some young women are making a fashion statement, defying threats and social taboos to take to the runway.

CITIZENS CELEBRATE TRANSFORMATIVE MOMENT IN IRELAND’S HISTORY PARADE with FREE OPEN AIR PAGEANT AND CONCERT Merrion Square at 2pm, setting out for the GPO at 3pm April 24, 2016 Join Panti Bliss, Fionnuala Flanagan, Adrian Dunbar, Donal Lunny, Damien Dempsey, Don Baker, Frances Black, Laoise Kelly, Sibéal Ní Chasaide Tomorrow, Sunday, April 24th the girls from Craobh O’Toole’s GAA club, Donnycarney, lead off the Reclaim 1916 parade from Merrion Square at 2pm. They carry our specially designed images of the Proclamation’s signatories to the GPO where actor Adrian Dunbar hosts a festival of music, dance and readings. Renowned actors, musicians, dancers join community groups, housing action networks, people trapped in direct provision, Travellers, women’s organisations, the Rossport community, the anti-war movement, LGBTI campaigns and Palestinian, Syrian and Kurdish support groups in Reclaim’s final initiative, a parade and open-air pageant and concert. Chief patron of this citizens’ initiative, artist Robert Ballagh, says: “We’re delighted that Reclaim the Vision of 1916 culminates in this chance for all citizens of Ireland, including the forgotten, the ignored, marginalised and discriminated against, to gather together to celebrate a transformative moment in our history. “The government’s military parade this Easter Monday provided no such chance. Many people living in Ireland who had a right to be there, were excluded from that event. Reclaim 1916 corrects this injustice. We are reclaiming the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who fought in 1916. They weren’t mere rebels, they were visionaries calling for revolution and a complete transformation of Irish society. “Our parade and free open-air pageant and concert have created a platform for a republic that successive governments have failed to deliver: a republic of equality and opportunity with nobody marginalised, left behind or forgotten or forced through economic circumstance to flee the country of their birth,” says Ballagh. Adrian Dunbar and Fionnuala Flanagan, with Panti Bliss and Stephen Murphy, give readings. Musician Donal Lunny plays a piece he composed for the occasion. Singers include Don Baker, Frances Black and Damien Dempsey. Sibéal Ní Chasaide, who wowed viewers of RTE’s Centenary programme with her haunting rendition of Mise Éire, will also perform. Award-winning uilleann piper Tiarnain Ó Duinchinn, harpists Laoise Kelly and Michelle Mulcahy, and flautist Emer Mayock join them. Sean-nós dancer Sibéal Davitt is sure to keep the crowd on their toes! This festival is the final event in the Reclaim 1916 programme. Reclaim the Vision of 1916 is a civil society group of artists, academics, trade unionists, community activists, journalists and other interested citizens who believe Ireland can be reinvigorated by the ideals of the signatories of the Proclamation. The festival on April 24 is our final commemorative initiative. See www.reclaim1916.ie or like us on Facebook. Video © Paula Geraghty

The Prophecy of the Seventh Generation: A Report from Standing Rock
 
11:48
The longest-running protest in modern history, the Standing Rock Movement has deep roots in Native American trauma and marginalization. The issues at hand are both legal and moral, with questions raised about the use of eminent domain for a private pipeline and accusations of repeated discrimination against the Native Americans at the hands of the US government. Despite the major victory for the Standing Rock protestors in early December, when the Army Corps of Engineering denied Dakota Access the easement to complete the final part of the pipeline, many people continue to camp at the site in North Dakota in below-freezing temperatures because of the company’s announcement that it would continue the project. Some of the younger protestors consider the standoff to be a sacred duty—the fulfillment of the native prophecy of the Seventh Generation, destined to rise up and defend the earth. Playboy’s Yoonj Kim spent a week living with the young indigenous people behind the Standing Rock Movement at Oceti Sakowin Camp. While history appears to be repeating itself with the continued oppression of Native Americans, there is something different about these young “protectors” of the water and earth. With social media, massive support and a racial unity behind the Native cause on their side, the Seventh Generation just might lead us all to a different ending.

This short film is one of a series of five films produced as part of the 'Supporting the Education of Marginalised Girls in Kailali' (STEM) programme. The film was used as a community mobilisation/ advocacy tool and was shown, alongside the programme's EGAP Campaign animated film, in remote Far Western communities in Nepal. STEM is funded - 1.7 million GBP - by UKaid under a global initiative called the Girls Education Challenge (GEC) which is supporting 38 projects in 18 different countries around the world. STEM is implemented by Mercy Corps Nepal, in partnership with local partners FAYA Nepal, Empower Generation, Foundation for Development Management and Media for Development. STEM works in 30 schools with almost 7,000 in-school girls between grades 6 and 10, over 1,000 out-of-school girls who dropped out during the same school years, as well as their parents, communities, school teachers and managers, and boys. The programme activities include: campaigning to promote girls’ education; training school teachers, school management personnel and parents; upgrading existing/ building school infrastructure; offering business start-up/ expansion loans through its innovative Girls Transition Fund (GTF); using clean energy technology to impact on study time; delivering critical academic support, life skills and sexual and reproductive health training to girls; and providing training and employment opportunities to help girls transition from school into employment. The programme began in January 2014 and closes in late 2016. Highlights! At the Midline assessment... * STEM had achieved an 86% and then 89% School Leaving Certificate pass rate in its first two years of programming (compared to a district/ non STEM average of 77% in both years). * STEM's In-School Girls' Clubs - which deliver academic support in Science, Maths and English, as well as bespoke Life Skills and Sexual and Reproductive Health curricula - have on average maintained a 99.2% take up rate of all available in-school girls between grades 6 and 10. * The Girls' Transition Fund (GTF) - a new for Nepal financial service bringing low interest loans to girls who have been historically discriminated against in this sector since they are expected to move away when they marry and therefore default on their repayments - has provided almost 78,000 GBP in loans to 89 girls, and expects to provide over 100,000 GBP to around 123 girls by close out. All evidence to date is that girls are paying back on time. * 2016 donor rating of the programme: 'A'

Brussels, Belgium (Oct 5, 2016): Hazara Afghan journalist, Hadi Sadiqi, from Roznama PanahJoyan accusing Afghan President, Ashraf Ghani, of discrimination against Hazaras during 'Brussels Conference on Afghanistan.' The Hazara journalist was first asked to leave the conference hall mistaken as a 'heckler'. He was then invited back in the hall by the EU delegate after his journalistic credentials were confirmed. During this conference, EU and Afghan Govt also made secret deal to deport thousands of Afghan Refugees from EU. The deportation will mainly affect Hazaras as it prioritizes deportation of people from 'peaceful' parts of Afghanistan. http://www.hazara.net/2016/10/major-hazara-protest-at-brussels-conference-on-afghanistan-in-belgium/ Hazaras in Afghanistan and the Diaspora has taken to activism to call out the discrimation of Afghan Government against the Hazara people.

Christians feel under siege in divided America
 
05:41
(14 Jun 2016) In a divided America, even in a deeply religious swath of western Kentucky - a state where about half the residents are evangelical - conservative Christians feel under siege. For decades, they say, they have been steadily pushed to the sidelines of American life and have come under attack for their most deeply held beliefs, born of their reading of Scripture and their religious mandate to evangelise. The 1960s ban on prayer in public schools is still a fresh wound. Every legal challenge to a public Nativity scene or Ten Commandments display is another marginalisation. They've been "steam-rolled," they say, and "misunderstood." Religious conservatives could once count on their neighbours to at least share their view of marriage but those days are gone. Public opinion on same-sex relationships turned against conservatives even before the US Supreme Court legalised gay marriage nationwide. Now, many evangelicals say liberals want to seal their cultural victory by silencing the church. Liberals call this paranoid. But evangelicals see evidence of the threat in every new uproar over someone asserting a right to refuse recognition of same-sex marriages - whether it be a baker, a government clerk, or the leaders of religious charities and schools. America's divisions - right-left, urban-rural, black-white and more - spill daily into people's lives, from their relations with each other, to their harsh communications on social media, to their decisions in an acrimonious presidential election campaign. Many Christian conservatives feel there is another, less recognised chasm in American life, and they find themselves on the other side of the divide between "us" and "them." For evangelicals like those at Christian Fellowship, the sense of a painful reckoning is not just imagined; their declining clout in public life can be measured. The turnabout is astonishing and hard to grasp - for them and for other Americans - since the US remains solidly religious and Christian, and evangelicals are still a formidable bloc in the Republican Party. But a series of losses in church membership and in public policy battles, along with America's changing demographics, are weakening evangelical influence, even in some of the most conservative regions of the country. "The shift in the last few years has really been stunning, said Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay Research, an evangelical consulting firm in Nashville, Tennessee. The Protestant majority that dominated American culture through the nation's history is now a Protestant minority. Their share of the population dipped below 50 percent sometime after 2008. Liberal-leaning Protestant groups, such as Presbyterians and Lutherans, started shrinking earlier, but some evangelical churches are now in decline. The conservative Southern Baptist Convention lost 200,000 from its ranks in 2014 alone, dropping to 15.5 million, its smallest number in more than two decades. The trend is reflected in the highest reaches of public life. The US Supreme Court is now comprised completely of Jews and Roman Catholics. In the 2012 presidential election, the Republican nominees were a Mormon, Mitt Romney, and a Catholic, Paul Ryan. Nearly a quarter of Americans say they no longer affiliate with a faith tradition. It's the highest share ever recorded in surveys, indicating the stigma for not being religious has eased - even in heavily evangelical areas. Americans who say they have no ties to organised religion, dubbed "nones," now make up about 23 percent of the population, just behind evangelicals, who comprise about 25 percent, according to the Pew Research Centre. Christians who have been only nominally tied to a conservative church are steadily dropping out altogether.

Women's Rights and Freedom in Bangladesh
 
15:42
This documentary is a part of my ENG4U ISU project assignment. The main idea and creation of this documentary is to ultimately raise awareness of the on-going gender discrimination in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi women are abused and exploited left and right everyday. Furthermore, many were tricked and lured into prostitution, and several were even kidnapped and sold as slaves. Women should not be afraid to speak out for themselves, they must extinguish their fears, or they will forever be dominated and controlled by someone with a higher authority or power.

India's Dalits rise against Indian state for the first time ever | 2016
 
17:41
With Kashmir, Khalistan (Punjab) and Naxals gaining strength the lower caste hindus (Dalits) have made history by organizing, protesting and declining to do the dirty jobs that upper caste hindus have been forcing them to do for centuries. While Kashmir's successful movement against Indian occupation may have been an inspiration Dalits have been agitating to free themselves of the inhumane treatment they've been getting even in the 21st century as India claims to be a democracy but behaves like a fascist oppressive regime to all minorities including Muslims, Christians, Sikhs,lower caste hinDus and the tribal in the southern states where the separatist rebels like Naxals operate.
