In my first year of my graduate degree, I encountered a doctor during a placement who took it upon himself to make daily inquiries into my sexual habits. When I initially spoke up about this, I was told that he must think I'm attractive and that I should "take this as a compliment". This situation wasn't handled properly until an older doctor, a father of three adult daughters got involved . I've encountered similar situations in my life, and I'm lucky that these were very mild.
As a therapist I'm privy to horror stories. Women and children who have been harassed, abused, and made to feel constantly afraid in their daily lives. Recently, I encountered a young man who had been raped but told me he was dreading telling me this because he feared I would "laugh at him". Its not enough to say we want to "end" sexual assault. We need to look at why society allows us to get there in the first place. We need to look critically at the opinions we have about specific people in society and why we dismiss certain people and allow the "jokes" of others.
For those people sharing a #metoo story, you are believed, respected , and valued. For those who read these stories and choose to silently relate , you are STILL believed, resoected, and valued. You don't have to go public for your story to be believed. 📷 by @genuinely_jules

Mark Twain said "there are lies, damn lies and statistics". About Modern Day Slavery these statistics are simply gut-wrenching about the greatest crime in modern humanity
Today in the UK is Anti-slavery Day

Here are some modern day slavery statistics that you might not know about.

There is an estimated 20 to 30 million slaves across the world today. It is hard to count the exact numbers of a hidden population.

90% of women and children who end up as Sex Slaves were victims of childhood sexual abuse before they were recruited.

You are in greater risk of being hit by a bolt of lightning than you are of going to jail, if you enslave a person in South Asia.

An estimated number of 800,000 people are illegally trafficked across international borders every year.

There are 161 countries affected by human trafficking.

The total yearly profit gained from human trafficking is a staggering $32 billion a year.

Majority of modern slavery victims are between the ages of 18 and 24 years old.
1.2 million children are enslaved through forced labor and exploited in the sexual industry each year.

In 1850, the cost of a slave if converted in today’s dollar value, would be $40,000. The cost of a modern day slave is $90.

Brazil leads the world in fighting modern day slavery.

In terms of profit, Human Trafficking is ranked as the 3rd largest international crime industry – just behind Drugs and Arms Trafficking.

54% percent of modern day slaves were recruited by strangers and 46% were recruited by people they know.

78% of modern day slaves are in the Labor Industry, while 22% are in the Sex Industry.

55% of modern day slaves are women and children and 45% are men and boys. 26% of them are children under 18 years old.

I just reworked this one. It was a lot different. I thought some of you divine humans might like it. Well, I like it anyway. 😜😏💋
This course I'm doing for the service I'm doing placement at is so educational. Thankyou Supervisors for sending me.💋 Yes, I have 2 Supervisors because one is a Social Worker but the other has a Social Work degree but has never practiced. They're also a Lawyer and practice as a Lawyer. I'm so fortunate to have access to both professionals. I'm just a fortunate woman all round really. 😆💗 I'm beat so it's bedtime. Goodnight one of a kinds. Love you all. ✌🌍💋 #socialjustice #justice #socialart #norms #artist #instagram #whatliesbeneath #beyourownhero #beyourself #socialwork #empower #mentalhealth #thisiswhatmentalhealthlookslike #dickhead

Hoy os quiero hablar de la importante acción solidaria para las víctimas del terremoto de México que mi amiga Corina Preciado está coordinando junto Lüla Queen.
Muchas personas perdieron la vida, sus casas, sus familias... pero aunque estemos lejos, podemos apoyarles de diferentes formas. ➡ Os animo a todos a aportar vuestro granito de arena asistiendo a un concierto el próximo sábado 21 de octubre en el Espai Octubre Concerts. Si no puedes asistir, también puedes colaborar y donar a la Fila 0 en movingtickets.com.
Ya sabéis: lejos, pero siempre cerca. ❤

Did you know? You may be able to buy fruits and vegetables from your local farmers’ market using your WIC benefits. Farmers’ markets are great sources of fresh, seasonal, and locally grown produce. Ask your WIC staff. #momstrong

Hey Hey, and welcome to my Instagram. I previously had an Aspie insta and gained quite a following but I lost the password lol. Bye 👋 So here I am with a new one. I am a 19 year old Aspie. Officially diagnosed when I was 16, but had many MANY appointments before this time to come to this conclusion. I am now at University studying to be a lawyer. In my spare time I like reading, adventuring, creating lists and starting new projects that I never finish. Oops. The aim of this Instagram is to comment on and introduce ideas around Autism and Autism acceptance, in a relatively simple and easy to digest way. From this I hope to extend peoples knowledge on the concept of Autism and Aspergers, and more broadly the concept of Neurodiversity. Although, I dont believe in the high functioning/low functioning dichotomy. I do believe that society has certain expectations for behaviour, and those who are labelled “low functioning” are not in fact “low functioning” They are just further from the expectation of society. Those who are labelled “high functioning” are not in fact “high functioning”They are merely better at conforming to expected standards. For this reason I believe this dichotomy should be abolished and the transition from aspie and autie.. to autie and autie is a good one. When we present a united front, we are better able to advocate for our rights, and more likely to produce change in our communities. I hope you enjoy my Instagram, and get prepared for many MANY more posts. xx 🌸

Here is Anna using her years of experience in fashion and design to teach new skills to one of our tailors. Not only do these skills benefit Stitch'd, but they add to the confidence and future job security of our artisans, helping break the cycle of poverty. When you buy Stitch'd, you don't just score yourself beautiful new clothes, you literally change the lives of individuals, families and communities. Thank you!
