FEMALE CHORE BURDEN

Melinda Gates plans to address chore burdens for women worldwide. Globally, women spend an average of 4.5 hours a day on unpaid work, twice that of men. "In India, . . . women spend about six hours, and men spend less than one hours," Gates writes in her annual philanthropy priorities letter.

Girls fall behind in school because of chores, and women are so busy cleaning and cooking that they have little time for paid work.

If women participated in the economy at levels equal to men, Gates writes, global GDP could increase by 12 percent.

MUSE NEWS AMERICA

Will Hillary Clinton Make History Vogue March 2016

One of the most consistent raps against Clinton is that she doesn’t have that one big achievement as senator or Secretary of State—that piece of legislation; that peace accord—that she can point to as her legacy. It was all, in the words of one Democratic pollster I spoke to, “small beer”—a manly put-down if ever there was one. Says Kornacki, “John Kerry can say, after this Iran deal, ‘Look, I was Secretary of State for four years and here’s my legacy: this enduring pact that disarmed Iran.’ What can Hillary Clinton point to along those lines? Nothing like that.”
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright doesn’t think that criticism is fair. “She restored America’s reputation. People didn’t know what to make of us after the Bush administration. Hillary had this capability of dealing with every world leader and explaining who we were, who we are, who we want to be, in a way that is a huge accomplishment given what had preceded it.” For Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, many of the trips Clinton made as Secretary of State don’t get counted toward her legacy but should. “She went to charities in Africa where they were helping women survive being brutally raped in horrible conflicts, helping them be able to learn how to love the children that came from rape and how to be mothers and how to reintegrate and heal their wounds. Previous Secretaries of State didn’t spend time doing that. But she did. So she was always drawing attention to the least among us.”

Womens News | Nigerian Girls Receive Hostile Homecoming | Christine Lagarde Takes 2nd IMF Term AOC Women's News

The world rejoiced as groups of Nigerian girls and women being abducted by Boko Haram were returned to their communities. #BringBackOurGirls attracted a firestorm of global support for the approximately 2,000 females abducted by the terrorists, but a joint report released this week by UNICEF and human rights group International Alert, confirmed that many women and teen girls are being rejected by their communities and families. This is so often the case when females are raped and often find themselves pregnant.

A credentialed French labor lawyer, Christine Lagarde was unanimously elected on February 19th to a second term as head of the IMF. She is pictured here meeting with Nigeria's president Muhammadu Buhari in January 2016. High on Lagarde's list of concerns was the subject of Boko Harem's terrorist activities in northern Nigeria, and the havoc it has created for millions of people. Young girls and women have suffered disproportionately. 

In September 2015 Lagarde delivered a crucial speech as Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, Delivering on the Promise of 2025. The setting in Ankara, Turkey was the inaugural gathering of the Women-s 20 -- the W-20.

Today’s launch is timely. At their summit meeting last November, the G-20 pledged to reduce the gap in women’s labor force participation by 25 percent by the year 2025—which would have the benefit of creating an estimated 100 million new jobs for the global economy.

That was The Promise of 2025. Today, I want to focus on how to deliver on that promise.

Certainly, it represents a major challenge. But with so much attention focused on gender equity—by the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals this year, and by the G-20’s pledge from last year—we clearly have a unique moment of opportunity.

We must seize it.

'Neerja' Actor Sonam Kapoor

'Neerja' Actor Sonam Kapoor Talks Feminism With BuzzFeed India AOC Women's News

Kapoor's new movie 'Neerja' just became Bollywood's highest-grossing 'heroine-centric' film. Kapoor plays chief purser Neerja Bhanot, who became an international hero after terrorists hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 on Sept. 5, 1986.

“I’m a feminist and I’m not embarrassed to say it at all,” Kapoor laughed at an event earlier this month. “I’ve been saying it since I was 21-years-old, since I joined this industry.”

She attributes her own feminism to her father, actor Anil Kapoor who" treated me like a son". I couldn't help thinking about Malala and the extraordinary relationship she has with her father.

ANNE'S TRUE LOVE: THE KIBERA SCHOOL FOR GIRLS

SHOFCO FOUNDERS:

Kennedy Odede & Jessica Posner Odede

 The alchemy of their remarkable union has drawn the support of community members and celebrities alike—The Clintons, Mia Farrow, and Nicholas Kristof are among their fans—and their work has changed the lives of many of Kibera’s most vulnerable population: its girls. Jess and Kennedy founded Kibera’s first tuition-free school for girls, a large, bright blue building, which stands as a bastion of hope in what once felt like a hopeless place. But Jessica and Kennedy are just getting started—they have expanded their model to connect essential services like health care, clean water, and economic empowerment programs. They’ve opened an identical project in Mathare, Kenya’s second largest slum, and intend to expand their remarkably successful program for change.

Ultimately this is a love story about a fight against poverty and hopelessness, the transformation made possible by a true love, and the power of young people to have a deep impact on the world.
