April 20, 2017: 
Sexism exists in every sphere of a woman’s life. We have summed up some casual sexist statements every woman overhears some or the other day.

1) Definition – Man and Woman

Sexist definition exhibits gender bias-ness clearly

2) Inherent Traits

We hear this a lot. Don’t we?

3) Workplace Hazards

If women are capable of earning more. Then, Why not?

4) Body Verdicts

So unfair. Isn’t it?

5) All Girls are akin

Paraphrasing “like a girl” as a disparage? Think twice

6) Virginity Hysteria

Hypocrisy at its best

7) Rape Culture

While accusers of Rape are men, Victims of Rape are women

8) Slut Shaming

Either wear lipstick or dress. You are a “Slut”. End Slut shaming before it disgrace you.

9) Neverending dilemma of female lover

Equal emotions but different perspectives

10) Feminist Slander

Feminism is a misunderstood concept and feminist even more

11) Mothers are always responsible

Parenting is never about blaming games

12) Sons vs. Daughters

Differences begins from home

Women Are Rarely “Put Front And Center” At The Heart Of Climate Action

Feminism doesn't mean excluding men

Women must be at the heart of climate action if the world is to limit the deadly impact of disasters such as floods, former Irish president and U.N. rights commissioner Mary Robinson said on Monday.

Robinson, also a former U.N. climate envoy, said women were most adversely affected by disasters and yet are rarely “put front and center” of efforts to protect the most vulnerable.

“Climate change is a man-made problem and must have a feminist solution,” she said at a meeting of climate experts at London’s Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Entrepreneurship.

“Feminism doesn’t mean excluding men, it’s about being more inclusive of women and – in this case – acknowledging the role they can play in tackling climate change.”

Research has shown that women’s vulnerabilities are exposed during the chaos of cyclones, earthquakes and floods, according to the British think-tank Overseas Development Institute.

In many developing countries, for example, women are involved in food production, but are not allowed to manage the cash earned by selling their crops, said Robinson.

The lack of access to financial resources can hamper their ability to cope with extreme weather, she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on the sidelines of the event.

“Women all over the world are … on the front lines of the fall-out from climate change and therefore on the forefront of climate action,” said Natalie Samarasinghe, executive director of Britain’s United Nations Association.

“What we — the international community — need to do is talk to them, learn from them and support them in scaling up what they know works best in their communities,” she said at the meeting.
