Стюардесса угнанного EgyptAir назвала захватчика трогательным
По словам стюардессы, захватчик действовал тихо. «Он был очень спокойным, но что-то было странным в его поведении… Он как будто не знает, что он хочет, что ему конкретно нужно. Единственное, что было очевидно, — он хотел видеть свою бывшую жену. Это было трогательно», — рассказала Хасан.

Why We Need to Stop Equating Leadership with Masculinity
Have you ever immediately assumed that a doctor, politician, or professor was a man and then later realized your mistake? Maybe you walked into a meeting and assumed that the female client was an assistant or lower-ranking professional and not the CEO.
Sexual Harassment Drives Women Away from Online Games — Not “Trash Talk”
Why do women remain silent in voice-chat on online games, or use gender-neutral user-names? It’s because many women gamers have noticed that the online abuse that they receive goes beyond just typical “trash talk,” such as insults related to a player’s skills. The form of online abuse that sticks with women gamers the most is gendered harassment, such as sexist comments, rape jokes and threats, and sexual harassment, according to a recent study.
Why Women need a Tribe
In ancient times women shared a lot more than they do today. They shared care of their babies, gathered food and cooked together. The women and the children shared their lives intimately, and were a source of strength and comfort to each other on a daily basis. Traditions like the Red Tent, where women came together during menstruation to be together, often with synchronised cycles, were a beautiful time for nurturing, sharing women’s business and keeping each other resilient and happy.

I Love the U.N., but It Is Failing
I HAVE worked for the United Nations for most of the last three decades. I was a human rights officer in Haiti in the 1990s and served in the former Yugoslavia during the Srebrenica genocide. I helped lead the response to the Indian Ocean tsunami and the Haitian earthquake, planned the mission to eliminate Syrian chemical weapons, and most recently led the Ebola mission in West Africa. I care deeply for the principles the United Nations is designed to uphold. And that’s why I have decided to leave.
Prostitution Is Not Just Another Job
This week, New York Magazine added its name to the long list of mainstream publications that pose the question, “Is prostitution just another job?” As usual, the article begins with the story of a white, well educated “escort” seeking an edgy experience while attending a $50,000-a-year private college. The featured woman (and it almost always is an adult woman) negotiates the sex trade on her own terms and can exit anytime she wishes. While these situations do exist, they are far from the reality of the vast majority of people bought and sold in prostitution.

Why Do We Teach Girls That It’s Cute to Be Scared?
I WAS one of the first women in the San Francisco Fire Department. For more than a dozen years, I worked on a busy rig in a tough neighborhood where rundown houses caught fire easily and gangs fought with machetes and .22s. I’ve pulled a bloated body from the bay, performed CPR on a baby and crawled down countless smoky hallways.
Thing, a short biography
