I am in awe of the bravery and resilience of Afghan women. Today their peaceful march was stopped by intimidation and violence. The world cannot ignore the voices of Afghan women. Citizens of humanity cannot forget about #Afghanistan #Kabul twitter.com/zahrasrahimi/s…
I am shocked, distressed and deeply saddened. I hope with all my heart that #SalmanRushdie will survive this utterly horrific and despicable attack. theguardian.com/books/2022/aug…

This from Truss is wrong on so many levels. Attitude towards Scotland is wrong,attitude towards a democratically elected leader is wrong. And “attention-seeker” is a common patriarchal cliche used against every successful woman—to hear this from a female politician makes me sad. twitter.com/theipaper/stat…

That is why, this phenomenal victory is not only for all girls around the world, but also for all grandmothers who were discouraged and banned from playing football. #Lionessess 💜twitter.com/alexandlau/sta…m
They scored!! Amazing! How many girls across the world have been told that football is for boys only? How many women have been discouraged from doing sports because of bigots and misogynists? Thank you #Lionesses for proving them all wrong. Incredible, inspiring #LionessesLive
Mixing between Europeans is acceptable, but Europeans mixing with non-Europeans is not, Orbán claims. What is unacceptable is this utterly horrible and bigoted speech. This is pure racism. #saynotoracism theguardian.com/world/2022/jul…

İsmi Mübarek, hayat dolu bir kadın daha katledildi.Bu ülkede kadınlar, kız çocuk doğurdu diye kocaları tarafından işkenceyle öldürülürken, Danıştay’ın kararı korkunç bir haksızlık, hukuksuzluk.Kadınlar mücadeleden vazgeçmeyeceğiz #istanbulsözlesmesiniuygula #istanbulsözlesmebizim
Her name was Mübarek. She was tortured & killed by her husband “for giving birth to a girl.”This is the grim reality in Turkey, but despite increasing #femicides every day, top administrative court rejects appeal to reverse withdrawal from #IstanbulConvention Utterly unacceptable
Much respect for brave Afghan women and girls. The world can and should Not forget about #Afghanistan twitter.com/hrw/status/154…
What a moving, heartwarming message, thank you so much 🍀�twitter.com/shafldn/status…ji
