08/03/2019 – FIN wishes you all a wonderful women’s day!
As we dream and work towards improving the lives of girls and women at Kameshwaram, let me share with you all a little story that I wrote many years back for Joanna. (Thank you!).
There was this special girl in Kameshwaram, who was extremely physically challenged and nearly blind. Her parents found it too difficult to raise her and so her grandmother took care of her. The grandmother was one of the recipients of the prize for the …
16/02/2019 – FIN in deep sorrow – Terrorism is inhumane
We express great sorrow for the Pulwana act of terror in Kashmir that killed over 40 personnel.
When are humans going to learn to live together humanely?
More than ever, we need leaders of peace everywhere, and especially a Muslim leader of peace, a party of peace, a movement of peace. We need visible leaders and parties of all religious affiliations, that loudly speak out and call out for peace. We know the names of all terrorist organizations of religious hues – but how many famous religious organizations do we know which are working for ONLY peace, for brotherhood, and let’s not forget sisterhood, and every type of gender identity in-between? We need them desperately and we pray to the higher forces for such leaders of peace.
We also salute these women in Pakistan who are protesting AGAINST terrorism. We salute all working towards peace.
Peace to all of you. Peace. Peace. Peace. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.
That said, we hope to help the widows of those soldiers. And we will be writing to the government. These things take time, but we hope to do something – however small – but something positive. If you have any ideas on whom we should write to – let us know.
11-02-2019 – International Day of Women and Girls in Science
While saluting all women and girls in Science, we still have some important points to think about and address
1. The More the Gender Equality in a country, the Fewer the Women in STEM or in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields.
2. Women in countries with higher gender inequality pursue STEM professions because they are perceived to be among the quickest and surest paths to financial security……
hmm……could it be also because in developed countries there is actually more gender stereotyping?
What do you think? Why are there so few women in STEM? By own choice or by societal shaping? Why is the percentage of women in STEM higher in developing countries despite the barriers – see featured article on first woman to get Ph.D. in science in India? Let’s hear from you…..and read this article to get the global picture
