SVRI (Sexual Violence Resarch Intiative):
This year we wanted it to raise awareness on the fact that gender violence is a problem that concerns both men and women, and we wanted to focus on the role of men and include them as agents of change. This is why we decided to call this year's campaign: "BE MAN ENOUGH. BE A LEADER AGAINST GENDER VIOLENCE".

IFJ campaign: End Violence against Women Journalists

International day for the elimination of violence against women

Mindy Ran
Co-Chair 
IFJ Gender Council

When we speak, each year, of violence against women journalists, we must take into account that women journalists are threatened, attacked, bullied, harassed, raped and sometimes killed for being women, for being journalists and sometimes, for being women journalists.  

As women, 70% of us will experience violence in our lifetime, a human rights violation and, according to the UN  "a consequence of discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, and of persisting inequalities between men and women." 

As journalists, with more and more women entering the profession, we have discovered that they - more often their male colleagues, are the subject of threats, harassment, violence and rape used as a tool to silence their voice. Sometimes it is by corrupt governments, sometimes the harassment is on the job and is aimed at removing them from the workforce. Sometimes, they are attacked or raped for doing their job. Loe edasi

Aleksei Turovski ja teised loomad





Autor Piret Mäeniit: "See tuleb minu jaoks tore päev: saan jälle silmast silma kokku hr Aleksei Turovskiga, kelle sabas terve kevade ja suve sai silgatud ja kelle pajatusi ammulisui kuulatud, kui ta oli ennast otsekui loodusobjekti vaadelda lubanud. Mispeale kirjutasin kuuldu-nähtu raamatuks "Aleksei Turovski ja teised loomad", mida sel kolmapäeval, 4. detsembril kell 16 Solarise Apollo raamatupoes peategelase lahkel osalusel esitletakse. Uudistama ja jutulõnga kerima on lubanud tulla ka hr Mati Kaal ja raamatu ämmaemandad ning -isandad Tänapäeva kirjastusest. Rõõmustan juba ette, kui saate seda kohtumisrõõmu jagama tulla!"
