Time to combine struggles

Rebuilding the ideologies that women are best left with domestic work and seen as sex objects can be achieved with feminism. But not as it is.It needs to grow to a revolution, one not only all women commit to, but also men participate in.Real equality in societies throughout the globe is achievable if feminism is combined with other kinds of struggles that contribute or foster the inequality in the first place. Examples of struggles that feminists should enjoin themselves to are the anti-patriarchy and anti-capitalists movements.

Women bearing the conflict burden

As the series of uprisings that later came to be known as the Arab spring spread through the region, women jumped aboard, eager to see the dawn of a new era.

Looking beyond the ashes of the 2015 MDGs

Does living below two dollars a day represent an actual picture of an individual living below the poverty line?

Edda Pando, ex-immigrant

Ideally, living in a foreign country should be an enjoyable experience: one which enables foreigners to explore other cultures and learn new ways of doing things.  However, in this 21st century, racism, xenophobia and other forms of discrimination as well as harsh immigration policies have combined to create a rather bleak picture, far different from the expectations that immigrants usually dream of.  Living in constant fear of arrest, unable to have access to good jobs and gross violation of human rights, are a just a few of the things that immigrants have to bear in a foreign country each day. When in 1991, Peruvian Edda Pando arrived in Italy with a tourist visa; little did she know what treatment awaited her.  Fourteen years on, Edda, who is now campaigning for the protection and promotion of rights of immigrants at the 2015 World Social Forum, says the feeling of not being able to live like a normal person was really depressing. Listen as she shares her story with Flamme D’Afrique.
