Understanding the Severity of the Turkey Earthquake
"This may be according to the Wall Street Journal this morning. Actually, it's The Washington Post. The worst natural disaster in consequences of our lifetime. Because of how it occurred occurred 11 miles below the surface, everything is made of brick, it's got no rebar in it. It all fell down. There are people trapped tens of thousands of people trapped. No way to get serious just to write off. I mean, you can get food maybe over to the turkey border, but you're not going to get the good guys to take the food into Syria, absent armed convoys in turkey. Story in The Wall Street Journal, as the sun went down Tuesday over gurney street, and this is from beland tech turkey, dozens of people, their hands and arms, limbed with ghostly gray dash silently come the wreckage flattened apartment blocks. His male parliament and his wife dug through the rubble looking to find mister carlock's mother in tune they said somewhere under 6 stories of collapse concrete and contorted metal. Next door, Fatima Kumar, hunting the remains of her home for belongings of her two sons. Our earlier, she had found the two boys 11 year old Ahmet in 17 year old Abdullah, dad, cradling one another in the wreckage. The brothers grabbed each other as the welding came down. Numb with shock and grief, the residents of Berlin and other cities towns and villages across southern turkey were contending with freezing temperatures, power outages, and they thought to find the missing and keep themselves alive in the aftermath of two powerful earthquakes that struck Monday. As I said, more than 10,000 people are dead, hundreds of thousands are displaced, tens of thousands are missing. They don't have any help for them, but they do have hope because every few minutes in the search area, it feel like they're now in turkey. They call for a halt to all movements so they can hear Tapping, et cetera the cell phone batteries are dying out. So it's really not a great situation. California knows how to do with earthquakes and we keep our electricity on and the California exploration team has been has landed in turkey now. The Israeli team is there. They've already rescued four people. There are a number of different specialized groups around the world. They're two in the United States. I think one is in New York City and the other one is in LA, but a half dozen train dogs to stiff only for live people they look for cadavers later, different group of people. They know how to move the concrete, but what they can't bring with them is enough food, water, blankets, and essentials, hygiene, personal stuff.

"Hi everyone, from wonder media network. I'm on a like a tubs. The author of the three mothers, how the mothers of MLK junior, Malcolm X and James Baldwin shaped a nation. My work focuses on motherhood through the lens of feminism, intersectionality, and inclusivity. And I'll be your guest host for this month of a manica. This month, we're talking about mothers. Women who ushered forth new generations and new futures through their care, work, and imagination. Today, we're talking about the woman remembered in Pakistan as the mother of the nation. Her memory is a symbol of feminism and democracy. Let's talk about Fatima jinnah. Fatima was born on July 30th, 1893 in Karachi in modern day Pakistan. At the time, the geographic area known as Pakistan was part of India and under the control of the British Empire. Fatima was the youngest of 7 children born to the jinnah family. After her father died in 1901, Fatima's older brother, Muhammad Ali, became her primary guardian. He sent her to the bandarra convent in Bombay to receive an education. Outside of school, she also studied in her brother's library and learned piano. In her late 20s, Fatima enrolled in dental school in Kolkata. Two years later, she returned to Bombay to open her own clinic with the help of her brother. In doing so, she became one of the first women in South Asia to open a dental clinic. It's important that we take a pause to understand the cultural and political climate that Fatima was growing up in. India was inching towards independence from Britain after more than a century of colonization. At the same time, tensions between Hindus and Muslims were manifesting in violent clashes and political stalemates. Fatima's brother, Muhammad Ali, was a leader in the Muslim League. A political party representing the interests of Muslim Indians. In 1929, Muhammad Ali's wife died unexpectedly. Fatima closed her clinic and moved into her grieving brothers home to help him manage his household. Over the next two decades, the siblings would grow increasingly dependent on each other. The next year, Fatima traveled to London with Muhammad Ali, who wanted to continue to raise his political profile abroad. Fatima became more involved in her brother's political affairs and served as his personal secretary while in London. During her four years abroad, she observed the role of British women in society. She concluded that higher degrees of education and social status helped them play more active roles in politics. Upon the jinnah's return to India, Fatima's political activism, blossomed. Both on her own and asked her brother's confidant. Fatima emerged as a leader for Muslim women in the independence movement. By inviting Fatima to stand alongside him during political speeches, Muhammad Ali helped to normalize the idea of a politically active Muslim woman. She also regularly attended women's organizations and promoted women's education and political involvement. On August 14th, 1947, Pakistan became an independent nation. And Fatima's older brother became its first governor general. The partition of British India cut a new border along rough religious lines. Displacing tens of millions of people. Hindu and Muslim communities were scattered throughout both new countries. During this time, millions of Muslims in Hindus immigrated across the new border to escape continued violence between communities. Hundreds of thousands died. Fatima established the women's relief committee. Later incorporated into the all Pakistan women's association to help refugees displaced by the split with India. After years of poor health, Muhammad Ali died of tuberculosis in 1948. After her brother's death, Fatima took a step back from public life, but she remained invested in women's rights in the newly formed country. The years following Pakistan's formation were marked by a constant struggle for control over the nation. In 1958, the country's leader was general ayub Khan. He had come to power by seizing the presidency in a coup d'etat. Many Pakistanis decried him as a corrupt authoritarian dictator. In 1965, Pakistan held its first general election. The election partially served to legitimize IU's presidency. After all, if he willingly exposed himself to an election, opponents would have a much more difficult time labeling him a dictator. Still, his government had all the necessary power to set the elections up in his favor. Pakistan had roughly 110 million citizens. However, its electoral system was set up so that only 80,000 could actually cast votes. This indirect system, called basic democracy, made it easy for ayub and his government to pressure electors into voting for him. He was hoping for an easy victory to cement his government's power. But the 5 major opposition parties banded together to nominate a challenger. They chose Fatima. At first, Fatima wasn't sure if she should accept the offer to run against iup. She was 71 years old and her health was declining. But Fatima also believed in democracy. She wanted Pakistani citizens to have the right to choose their leaders. Not just to serve whoever happened to be in power. She agreed to challenge iup. As she said in a campaign speech. I am taking up a tiring journey for my people whose betterment and prosperity is my mission. She ran on a 9 point platform which included removing class distinctions from Pakistani society, enshrining equal rights for minority citizens. Welfare to those in poverty and an end to government corruption. I did everything possible to block Fatima's path to victory. His government officials detained people working for her campaign. He mocked her for being a spinster. He even asked religious leaders to proclaim that Islamic law prohibited women from being state leaders. But this plan backfired when some expressed their belief that Fatima was eligible to rule. Fatima was already finally remembered as the sister of Pakistan's first leader. But her firm stance against dictatorship made her a surprisingly popular candidate. She campaigned throughout Pakistan, greeting huge crowds of supporters in cities around the country. There was real hope that Fatima could usher in a new era of fairness and democracy. But on January 2nd, 1965, Fatima lost the election. Some historians believe that if the election had been truly fair, Fatima would have prevailed and become Pakistan's first woman president. But even though she had lost, Fatima had carried several major urban centers, proving

Pennsylvania's Senate Race Will Stretch the Democratic Party Faithful
"One of the issues that we talked about having with the Democrats is they're policy issues of the far left. And basically it's very progressiveness. It's not matching up with a lot of the country. And in that you got fatter money lamb. John fetterman and Connor lamb for the most part who are running in this primary federman is way out in front right now. And federman is if you go to most I've talked to some democratic consultants, they would tell you that fetterman is going to be the harder one to try and keep this seat in some ways, although Pittsburgh Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and other parts of the state will go heavily for the current lieutenant governor. It is a race that is going to stretch the Democratic Party faithful. We'll see how the Pennsylvania is not a New York. It's not a California. It's not an Illinois. They're going to have to see how a fetterman would play, although he is one statewide. He's now going to have to play on a different stage. Conor lamb came out of the Pittsburgh area, a very well funded. He won the House seat. He has been one of the consistent, more moderate blue dog Democrats, if you would, which seemed to have played in the state of Pennsylvania very well, but so far it is just not. Fetterman's money advantage his notoriety and others have just played. And he is well on a double digit lead right now in this democratic primary. I do not see lamb overcoming that and it sets up an interesting race, whether it be federman and McCormick or Fatima in Oz, that one is going to be a one to race.

Hello, from wonder media network. I'm environmental activist Erin Brockovich. This is romantic. This month we're highlighting eco warriors, women fighting for conservation and ecological justice. Today, we're talking about a woman who is a prominent environmental activist in Somalia. In wake of her country's devastating Civil War, she founded a nonprofit focused on protecting its pastoral land. She has been a strong proponent of community driven chains as a method for tackling climate change. Let's talk about Fatima jabril. Fatima jibril was born on December 30th, 1947 in Sana'a Somalia. She grew up in a pastoralist family whose way of life revolved around raising livestock. At a young age, Fatima began hurting baby goats with her cousins. Her family lived in Savannah land with tall lush grasses. Often her parents worried about her wandering into the grasslands for fear that she might end up face to face with a lion. That's a move to the United States when she was in high school after her father settled their working as a merchant marine. She also completed an undergraduate degree in the United States. As a young woman, Fatima returned to Somalia and met a diplomat. Abdul Rahman mo hamud Ollie. Whom she married. Fatima first moved with her husband to Iraq, where he was stationed for work. When he was sent to the United States, Fatima joined him there, too. During this time, she earned her master's degree in social work from the university of Connecticut. While Fatima was studying in the United States, chaos was brewing in her home country. In 1991, after the ousting of then president seat barret, Civil War broke out in Somalia. If a team of felt compelled to take action, the fighting destroyed the agricultural sector of Somalia and hundreds of thousands of its citizens starved. In the early 1990s, the Fatima returned to Somalia and founded an organization called corn relief. Now known under the name adeso. Or African development solutions. The aim was to support peace through community based environmental initiatives. Having grown up at a time when livestock was Somalia's principle export, Fatima saw how war and climate change were ravaging the landscape. The lush savanna land was becoming a dusty desert. One caused behind this change was charcoal production. In the years following the outset of the Civil War, livestock was on the decline as an export, while charcoal was in high demand in the gulf countries. As charcoal production picked up, logging companies begin decimating the ancient Acacia tree. Fatima and her organization made it their mission to train youth to launch education campaigns. They taught local somalians about the environmental harm caused by charcoal production. With a day so, she organized a peaceful march in Puntland, a northeastern state in Somalia, advocating to end the so called charcoal wars. The combination of her advocacy and education efforts led to a ban on charcoal exports in Puntland. Subsequently decreasing exports by 80%. By 2012, Somalia had banned the export of charcoal throughout the country. Though an illegal trade still exist. Fatima's environmental activism has led to real change in Somalia, but the stakes remain high. In an interview with NPR Fatima said, maybe the land, a piece of desert called Somalia, will exist on the map of the world, but Somalis can not survive. In 2014, Fatima was awarded the UN environmental program champions of the earth award for her fight against the charcoal trade. She officially retired from a day so in 2013 and her daughter dagen Ollie has since become the executive director of the organization. All month were highlighting eco warriors.

"People who are actively committing violence, Mark, that this is the Muslim house. Oh, no, no, no, don't burn that one. That's a Hindu house. In 2020, there was a pogrom that under that unleashed in the national capital Delhi itself. And I went on a finding I was part of a fact finding committee. And when we went to the area, post the pogrom post, the violence, what we saw is that two houses of three houses in line, one is burnt, which is in the middle, which is a Muslim house. And the rest of the two are untouched. And the victims themselves have narrated how their neighbors told that this is the Muslim house. So this is a Muslim shop. But you can burn vandalize so that's one, even in Karnataka, the recent hijab issue. I've met the girls. I went to Karnataka and I met the girls in they told me that they're their friends. In fact, West African Charles and clearly made a line that we stand on this side of the line. And we do not support your right to choose or your right to wear your religious to practice your religion. It's not even about choosing to wear a thing. It's a religious practice that Muslim women do. And so that is very pronounced, and it has been even before the kind of things happen. I mean, Gujarat happened in Gujarat by one day in Mumbai. The criminal violence is an epidemic in India. That's one. And Kashmir is a very different situation, so there is, of course, Kashmir can be a reason but the way we see it as an in Muslims what Kashmiri Muslims face is very different than what Kashmir Indian Muslim space. And Kashmir is of course has been made into this massive Hindu sentiment of and the whole issue of cashmere dependence is used to invoke this emotional outburst of how Hindus are treated and all that kind of thing is there, of course. And it is used to further radicalize and create this sentiment of hate in the Hindu minds and hearts, but at the same time, even if that was not a problem even if Kashmir was Kashmir and it had nothing to do with India. I believe there would have still been a lot of tension, a lot of violence against the Muslim community because it's not just Ruth from issues like Kashmir or. But also from an inherent hit against Islam. And one of the biggest reason I believe is that Islam and Christianity are too religions that in an Indian context that that do not have the whole system of caste..

Sister, how can you explain to our listeners how and when this issue started happening, many of us who are part of the Diaspora from India, we don't necessarily understand. We think Muslims are 200 million in India and it's impossible to experience large scale discrimination and intimidation from far right people in India. So can you help us understand that a little bit better? About what's actually going on. I believe the persecution and discrimination that the Muslim community has been facing is it is. An heir to the partition and the Muslim community has been made to be to feel to be the other to be an enemy to be foreigners in this Hindu land. And ever since India became a nation state ever since its inception, there has been this discrimination, it was not so outright initially, but it was there..

He came to kind of develop it and did this with no funding for it. We just decided to fit in the middle of a pandemic and so it sits separately from kind of pse in terms of what's being done at a governmental level. Scotland did a pse review a few years ago around the same time that these reports were coming out. And so what we're doing now is we're got what we've gotten. Dundee and schools are no back. So we're going to be kind of rolling out to every school in dundee getting feedback on. Who is working and then hopefully am look to go nationwide and start bringing more young people into the project as well lynn. at this. it's amazing. But how do you get secondary school students.

Goals ashley what fierce gallstones full and we can send her solidarity with females in girls and ten of standing up for sexual harassment and abuse young girls and building education That's really exciting. What is it that you do. And so we're trying to bring more that into education into schools to make teachers more aware of what could be happening with relationships and to try to bring more education for the teachers so they can have health conversations with young girls to make sure that they are. They know what's going on. What could happen to the threat doesn't so how does that play out. Fatima are you creating content or methods for people. Talk about these things. Yes so we've developed a range of kids. We'd go one in the young people in schools other sensings record one for professionals on Wonderful gesture for question today whether this was paul off or is in any way running alongside the sort of brilliant new changes that have come into primary school relationships education or stop different in england than in scotland but like as of september primary school kids getting taught a much broader curriculum about relationships. And it's not I think there was a backlash on the press because it sounded like it was sex education etc etc and its relationship education and i think especially what very young primary school kids have. Being told is exactly like it. Sounds like your briefest. An an terms of like teaching the different things relationship can look like a more healthy relationship. Is it start. A primary school is anything to do with that on top of that. And in addition to that so i think yeah it'd be helpful to talk about how it started so am in two thousand eighteen. Why do we scotland's one of the called young women leads on which i was participant and i run. That program released a report looking at sexual harassment and scottish schools.

"Wow what a story. I love this story for a couple of reasons and deceptively complex at least to me because the situation for one is is rare in the stories that i read here because the protagonist isn't telling the story herself her story is being told to her by a narrator which is juxtaposed against fatima trying to draw her stories from her and i love how the world building itself is complex and unfolds throughout the story. I mean i. We've got a world here where no men exist and that alone is interesting to me and how the world of women have adapted to this world absent men and mine information from those who lived through the common era that it is untenable to them to not have the whole story right. Not just the whole story of what happened but the whole story of those. Who were there thinking that that information will give them insight into the truth of what went down and now the thing about secrets. Is that number one. We have them And number two. There are good reasons for why we tell our secrets or some of our secrets and there are usually at least we convince ourselves very good reasons for holding those secrets close to our chest in my experience. One of those reasons to keep secrets is our shame. At whatever it is that we've done To cause us to want to not have anybody now that vulnerability inside of us that is desperately afraid of the judgement that can sometimes come along with our actions Now our protagonist creates in herself a dilemma. Because she knows that there was something she might have been able to do and didn't literally took the path of least resistance and the guilt that she carries it's heavy and she carries with her every day. I think we can all relate to that that there are. There are secrets that we will carry. Two are gray but our capacity to hold on to some secrets can be crippling. And i think that even if you don't come clean with the person or persons that you feel you have offended the person or persons that you feel you have done wrong by. I do believe that it is helpful to tell someone. I part of our mental health is that we have a safe space to go and tell our secrets in therapy. I belong to a men's group and every thursday. We meet in support of one another.

It's it's a rare feeling to have in this world. And i think it's really incumbent upon us to seek out those safe spaces where no matter what we can unburden ourselves chartreuse. Let go of our secrets. So they simply do not cripple us. The least that's.

"Three weeks later. Fatima sits across the table from you hunched over a mug of coffee. She has broken up with her girlfriend. But aside from this decline in posture g seems to be handling it just fine. She has been interviewing you for an hour focusing on your time in high school. Your interactions with male teachers. They're bored with the line of questioning board with this strange dance. The two you do. You've been thinking a lot about what you'd like to say independent of her questions. You interrupt her latest inquiry to ask. Can we talk somewhere else. fatima blinks. You never interrupt her. You are for the most part of very polite old lady is that you're not comfortable. Come with me and leave your come here. What now she says laughing you fumble with the clasp on your own com cuff slide. The cut loose and set it on the table. You tap the space beside it. I'm not supposed to. She says. I need to record our conversation. I insist you can see her. Doing the calculations hers is a face that calculates nakedly. She feels as though you've asked her to walk with her eyes close. They request is strange but not inherently suspicious. I want to tell you something something. I've wanted to talk about in private. Her condescending side slips in you see her relax a little. You're just guarding your secrets. Your just being a little dramatic about it. Old people and their obsession with secrecy vestigial limb of a world where secrets still existed. She can indulge you. This once she unlocks the com- slides it from her arm sets it on the table with clear. Reluctance to cuffs look. Oddly intimate sitting side by side take her hand and lead her down the hallway. You've given a great deal of thought to where this conversation could take place. The conservatory is just off the east wing. Or we'll be when it's complete for the moment it's just a big glass room filled with wicker furniture covered in dropped clones empty stone planters and flagstone pathways not a plant insight or camera. Those things will be added in a few weeks. You sit on shrouded sofa and gesture grandly for fatima to sit beside you. She does trying to hide her amusement. You lean toward her. There's a story. I've been wanting to tell you about you. Know back then. Cheese instantly alert the indulgent smile. Still on her face but barely covering her desire to no. I haven't told it to anyone not even when it happened. But i don't want it included in the literature or your official reports. It would have to be off the record. Fatima frowns if she agrees to this. She's ethically bound to follow through. She can't use any data any stories without your permission which until now granted easily. You know you're using her youth to her disadvantage here. She can see the immediate drawbacks. But you're bathing her dangling a bit of knowledge like lore this girl who has devoted her.

"You sit in an arm chair pretending to play with your com- cuff while. Actually you are watching. Fatima and her girlfriend talking outside the sliding glass doors to the home or perhaps talking is the wrong word. They say very little mostly shooting each other bursts of emotion which you can then see play across their faces. They are both flushed. Angry leaning toward tears. You think about how much it used to mean for someone to understand you to know your feelings from the way. Your eyes crinkled or your smile turned down at the corner. How the desirability of some things lies in their elusiveness. Eventually the girlfriend lease and fatima comes inside to start. Today's interview session wiping the sweat from her face and rubbing her is tough day. You ask she size. I think might lead to break up with my girlfriend. It is the most personal thing she has ever shared with you and you place a hand on her shoulder maybe she just needs a little space. Have you ever tried talking without the cuffs immediately. She retreated again her mouth. Ri- her is clinical. Oh that's a thought. This is advice from another century laughable in its obsolescence the way. You'd have responded if your grandmother had suggested you make up with your boyfriend by baking him a pie. How could you ever want less information. Surely an adequate information is the cause of all the world's ills. Well maybe she's right and since win. Are you such a fan talking anyway. You never told your house made about the woman in the woods. You didn't tell anyone you read the local paper. Every day looking for reports of missing persons murders assaults. It seemed that what you'd witnessed must have left a mark somewhere but if it did in the world outside your head you couldn't find it inside. That was different. You thought about her every day but the external data is deceptive. The data shows that you ate less for the next two months that you didn't leave the house as much as you usually did that. You listen to your music. a bit. Louder played the same sad songs again and again but the data also shows of course. You just broken up with your boyfriend if you hadn't seen to namur of him before the break-up well perhaps you just miscalculated your feelings. The data flagged surrounded blacked out space in the shape of a woman with a split mouth dripping blood if it happened now. of course the com- cuff would be onto you. Even if by some miracle you were not recorded even if no one had spoken a word through the whole encounter fatima would still be looking at your records and saying something went wrong here. Why so much cortisol and adrenaline. Why the climb in heart rate. Something must have happened. Tell me what she'd hack it out of you like an unpolished diamond. But back then no one did. You didn't offer up the information. You want her to sit with your grief and shame in the silence. Your guilt at having done. Nothing grew into a determination to do something. You quit retail and got a job at a women's shelter even though it meant working night shifts and giving up your weekends spent drinking and clubs a few years later you'd be the manager but at first you worked intake and sat at a desk if the insurance every day women walk through the door who looked as though they were ready to disappear. Who did not expect anyone to care about what happened to them. If you'd learn the name of that woman in the park if you talked about her maybe you would have gotten over it. Maybe when the common era was ending you'd have tried harder to find a way to leave have headed for some other country where things were going to remain more or less the same country full of boyfriends and.
The Miracle of the Sun
"The sun was low on the horizon when physics professor gustafsson stepped outside his office in november. Two thousand two. He smiled as he felt. That chile belgian air brush past him. The sky was clear. The afternoon was perfect. He strolled through the university of leuven campus. Until he found a vantage point it was an ideal spot to watch the sunset. But that wasn't exactly what the professor had in mind for months. Meese in had been obsessed with the miracle of the sun. A spectacular event witnessed by nearly seventy thousand people on october thirteenth nineteen. Seventeen a massive crowd in the village of fatima. Portugal had watched the sun dance across the sky today. Mason wanted to see it too. He took a deep breath in steeled himself for what was coming next. After a moment of hesitation he opened his eyes wide and looked directly into the sun. He knew he was risking damage but he had to be sure of what happened that day. Five years earlier as he stared into the sun he was astonished. The crowd was right. it was some miracle.
The Miracle of the Sun
"On a spring day in nineteen sixteen. A trio of children from the village of fatima headed out to the countryside with a flock of sheep. Nine year old lucia let her two cousins eight year old francisco and six. Jesse enter into the rich pasture. Land outside of their town deuce was daily routine for the three kids. Their families were shepherds and the children's spent most of their days with the sheep. They played games and cheese each other around the fields. It was a peaceful mostly uneventful life. Children and their families were devout catholics every morning before breakfast francisco and just jessica would say their prayers. Lucia carried a rosary with her into the passenger on this particular morning. It started to drizzle while the children watched the flock so they decided to hike up to a nearby cave and wait for the rain to pass in the cave. The kids took lunch break which included saying their prayers before breaking bread not long afterward gusts of wind began to shake the olive trees outside of the cave startled by the severity of the breeze. That children peaked outside to witness the storm but there was no storm as the kids stood in the mouth of the cave. The sky cleared in a blinding lights suddenly appeared above the nearby trees. The children were confused. The like wasn't coming from the sun and it didn't look like anything they'd ever seen but one thing was certain delight was coming toward them as it got closer. The kids saw take on a familiar shape until they could distinctly make out a human face then. The lights spoke. The children were terrified by its deep masculine voice. Little just seemed to start to cry. But the eldest lucia bravely stepped forward to protect her cousins.

Peter by fans is that correct. Yes yes so. I mean that's That's pretty damn deep. That's I i'm completely Not up to date with the women's funds records. But i'm i i mean i think would sophia alenka. Someone like that has something in the nineties is all right. Please remind me with the records like each we talk about ida's than than in ida linka. She has ninety two and Second with the states but this is the ida because because in the same master stem it they have more. But i'm not. i'm not sure they're linka. I think she did ninety four already and i did. I think ninety two or ninety three s well. And that's that's that's it i think so. You're up there with the big hitters And i mean you know if you put your mind to it and you you know you make the changes that you need to make than you can foresee a world record for fatima on the in the not too distant future then right well. I'm definitely during the work for it when i'm going to be recovered from injuries. The now these injuries they are slowing me down a bit. I was meant to go for the for the article. Blue this year They announced it for july. A but Because i had injuries. Even because i was still not able to got sponsors I decided not to not to sign up for it so vertical blues gonna have to wait for me. I guess yards but in any case. You're still young and you You can maybe. It's better to spend the year doing the work that you need to do. And then you know when you're ready for vertical blue vertical blue will be there for you exactly. That was my. That was my reasoning. Although my ego really wanted to push myself. But i've been doing in the last you know like many years. pushing down in a you can do it because you are a strong independent woman But but at some point you know that stress that you're pushing down and oldest small Kind of injuries. Or you know things that you should tree. They're going to sum up and then they're just gonna co something. Well got say no but like that can close like serious injuries or accidents. So it's better to treat everything you know in time before it would go whereas so that that's actually the biggest goal for at least for the first half of the year that i'm not pushing myself and i'm focusing on recovery and the south love in maintaining the thing staff. The i achieved so far and being grateful. 'cause during my two years the i wanna Let's say the first one and a half year of free diving. I was not really grateful for myself for anything And basically this eighty six meter is the same. It's the same depth that i achieved after eight months training Nine eight nine months of free diving in the hub and then gracia so I didn't headed that progression in the last one and a half year i was just like kinda maintaining it or getting back to it and say i was so not really so Mike wise issues. Five we're talking about that so equalization doesn't mean you're ready for the dive like that has to be so many other factors they also you know. They're the same level with your mental and physical adults so your equipment that Die was not the time for me. Or now actually. It's not the time for me. But let's sienna in a month. My recovery is going and then Yeah that i'm gonna know better and about the world's fair with the kobe restrictions several waiting waiting to find out. I don't think. I mean. I think a lot of us are not even waiting anymore when we when we find out. If there's a change than you know it'll be on the news but So in terms of Your plans for the future. Obviously you can't have too many fixed plans in in today's world but You know you spend the first half of the year you know looking after yourself and getting fully recovered. And what kind of other plans do you have. In in the long term in terms of like where you aim to be Do you have any dreams and aspirations Do you still plan to return to tendency. For what about croatia. So i'm i'm like the best ever in planning and replanning and then unchanging plants and do you plans so I'm here now in the habit. I really wanna go to spanish. Speaking place bakers i. I love latin places letting cultures so i love mexico so eventually i wanna go back to mexico and organizer retreat or have a retreat for myself. There for long term plans have been good meeting a now on online meetings with hungarian Instructor and we are planning to do Having and adventures for the center club Infinity fix all.

'Weight isn't always within your control': Why some states are prioritizing obesity patients for the COVID-19 vaccine
"State leaders make their own decisions on wind groups or eligible, but many people are not happy about obesity being considered a risk factor that should get early dibs at the vaccine joins us now to talk about this Dr Fatima Cody Stanford, She's an assistant professor of medicine in Massachusetts General Hospital. She's also in obesity, medicine, physician and adults, Adolescence and Children and MGH Wait center. Thanks for joining us tonight, Doctor. Thank you for having me. I guess the first question becomes one of the risk factors for those who are overweight when we're talking about Cove it so it's important for us to recognize that obesity is an actual disease, and I think one of the things that people don't realize is that it's the disease is not just how you look. It's actual, a disease process characterized by a high degree of inflammation. And so when we have that high degree of chronic inflammation associated with obesity, the disease it doesn't play well with the acute inflammation of covert 19. As such patients that have the disease of obesity do have a risk of dying. That's much higher, sometimes 3 to 4 times the likelihood of those that are leaner and wait. So it's important for us to recognize that this is important. We need persons with obesity to be vaccinated. We want them to live. We want them not to need ICU care and be on the ventilator. And that's why I think that this really is a prudent and a really important step for those that have the disease of obesity. Doctor. I want to read a quote from the chairwoman of the Obesity Action Co Elite coalition, who was featured in the USA Today article, she said, Wait isn't always within your control. With that in mind, and what we know about the risk of obesity and Kobe complications is the right move to get obese Americans in this next phase of the vaccine. One thing I'm gonna change I don't want to call people will be so this is a label. Obesity is a disease. And so that language can be highly stigmatizing for my patients that actually have this disease of obesity, but hands down. It's the right move to get patients with obesity vaccinated when we're looking at the vaccines, the fires of modern of particularly we saw that patients with obesity had a similar level of immunity with regards to the vaccines as persons that were leaner and wait status. So if we know that they're dying quicker. We know they're getting sicker and having much more Colton disease processes associated with covert. We need to make sure that they're getting vaccinated. Have you had a chance to talk to any of your patients? What was their response when the news broke that the possibility of them being moved to the next group? They're up to get the vaccine. What was that thought process. What was their feelings about that? There were some that felt you know a little bit guilty that their weight status would cause them a higher likelihood of getting the vaccine sooner than others. But many of my patients were actually very pleased, actually finally be able to get this vaccine so that we can return to some sense of normalcy here in the United States and around the world as we try to navigate these issues with social distancing physical, do, insisting and getting back to work, So I think that it's important to see that there's different camps in terms of what people think. But overall for my patients that have a B C that Aaron care they were very relieved to see that they were moving up in the ranks of the consideration for the vaccine. Alright,
Nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out the labor force
"Not long after Donald Trump arrived at the White House, he disbanded and office that focused on challenges affecting women. President Biden is now resurrecting it. Women's rights groups hope this will help them make progress on things like paid family leave and affordable child care. Here's NPR's Melissa Block. The wish list on Biden's agenda for women is long restoring an expanding reproductive rights, combating gender based violence, reducing maternal mortality, and he's pitched a slew of economic proposals. Major structural disruption requires major structural change. And I feel like thinking big right now is exactly what we need to do. So now is the time That's the co chair of the Biden administration's new gender Policy Council. Jennifer Klein. You know we're seeing because of the health pandemic because of the economic crisis, and, in fact, take care giving crisis that's been layered on top of it. These are core issues core issues, Klein points out that air hitting women hard and especially women of color. Just look at the most recent jobs numbers. In December, women accounted for all 140,000 of the country's net lost jobs. One factor behind that, with so many schools and day care centers closed because of the coronavirus. Many women have had to drop out of the labor force. That's been disastrous, says Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California, Hastings. Mother's already We're at the breaking point in the United States. I mean, we already had a choc your system that was basically a Rube Goldberg machine and the coronavirus brought that machine crashing down. Williams says. What she wants the Biden administration to do is to recognize that Just as we don't expect workers to get to work without physical infrastructure like bridges and roads. We can't expect workers to get to work without a care infrastructure. What would that care Infrastructure look like for Williams? That would mean subsidized neighborhood based child care, paid family leave Universal, pre K and $15 an hour minimum wage, especially during the pandemic. Single moms have had to choose between putting food on the table and leaving young Children home alone. Now. Part of the reason is because the minimum wages so low that there is no way on God's green Earth that those moms can pay for childcare. The paid caregivers are also reeling from the crunch. President Biden highlighted this when he announced his covert 19 relief plan last month. Let's make sure caregivers mostly women, women of color immigrants. Have the same pay indignity that they deserve. Advocates like I Jen poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, are heartened by what they're hearing from Biden. Her group represents workers, including nannies, home care workers and housekeepers, actually focusing on how we're going to make Thies jobs, good jobs for the 21st century. That you can take pride in and earn a living wage with benefits. That is a really big breakthrough. Conservatives, though, are leery of an agenda that carries a hefty price tag and they warn, will lead to crushing government regulations. Charmaine Yost is vice president of the Institute for Family Community and Opportunity at the Heritage Foundation. My biggest concern is that all of the proposals that I'm hearing coming from their side of things inevitably seem to come back to big government intervention in government programs. As for raising the minimum wage in the midst of a pandemic, when many businesses are suffering so badly if there were a time that you could create, that would be the perfect time to not Raise the minimum wage. This would be it with such a slim Democratic majority in Congress. Biden's agenda could have a tough time gaining traction. But Fatima Goss Graves, who heads the National Women's Law Center, is undaunted. Her group has issued an ambitious list of 100 demands for Biden's 1st 100 days. Basically, what we're asking this administration and Congress to do is effectively walk into gum. We need them to both undo things that have been harmful and have been Holding this country back and launch us forward in a way that we're stronger for it, Graves adds.

How COVID has worsened modern slavery
"My guests are Sierra and Stephen. Moore. So a husband and wife team the CO founders and directors of the Anti Slavery Organization. On China now, sadly, even with all the framework implies to tackle slavery along comes twenty twenty, the covid virus complicated further by the recession of the world economy. Sarah keeping with you how has the pandemic affected the workers at the bottom of the supply chain? mean the depend makers having catastrophic effects on supply chains and the people within them. We know that right at the beginning of covid thousands of people lost their jobs overnight. For example, Bangladeshi workers in factories would just told simply not come back to work the next day I read a story of a Lady Fatima. Twenty six with one child and she said one minute I was working the Knicks I was told to go home and not come back. What will I do and we're doing this story I ever either again, just yesterday I read about full thousand Filipino workers have been laid off because they contracts have been canceled from big name brands on this side of the world. This is a reminder that lives of the poorest of the poor said they must affected. You know when factories closed down no water more krant leaving no access to medical care very disturbing stephen a terrible Arnie has come from the pen Jimmy can one of these stories can you tell us about the manufacturers of people? In Malaysia Southeast Asia. Yes so Malaysia is a major producer of rubber and therefore rubber products made from rubber, and so we know that prior to Kevin. tain they were upset in bands on on manufacturers in the US are guiding the manufacturing of a products because of the conditions of workers and the standards that were in place. What's interesting is that as the pandemic breakout at the Dimond four PPA products through those Restrictions were lifted so that those products could be made and so this is concerning regarding the explosia increasing the risk of on slavery in those areas, and that brings us to Australia I can just imagine those of you cheating gene. You'd like to think of yourself as an ethical consumer. You wouldn't buy anything from a supply that explored its employees off certainly thought that Sarah is it really true. Look here in Australia, the Global Slavery Index estimates that there around fifteen thousand people living in slavery. So they miceli in the agriculture construction domestic service hospitality and sex industries says as well as services provided often by subcontractors such as cleaning security. And even car washing. Stephen. I'm sure he made a lot of Astrid. Slavery. Happens in this country till us more. Conversations on a daily basis with lots of companies and receptionists and executive assistants who sort of take a second look in the modern modern what slavery does this sexually occur? So there is a growing understanding of this issue in certain sectors of society, which is great to say a growing desire among consumers, a young consumers to be careful in how they purchase and what they buying to know what's behind the brand and the backyard. But there is still a great need for consumers and businesses to understand what are the implications of the choices they make and to make sure that. Is for ethically my products is actually real. And you think of different types of slavery forced marriage debt bondage six slavery child labor in the strain context who are the most vulnerable groups to fall victim to exploitation soon. Well Australia we have a number of women and at times there underage who are forced into marriage. So married against the will. That is an issue. 'CAUSE estimates around four and a half thousand up to eight thousand in Australia in the new. Year. So. These these people are at risk. We also know that there a risk among temporary workers, migrant workers in Australia there's up to one million. Timber Workers in Australia and they have been badly affected by covid nineteen, and so they are now at risk of having to receive low pay and also to do jobs for no pay. As you say covers made it harder but Sarah how do you identify person or group WHO's being exploited? That's right. I mean I, guess, it depends on the industry. But for example, I read a story about a man quote Abdul who was a Bangladeshi man who was working on a construction site just outside of camera. He came here thinking that he was going to be able to earn a lot of money to send I am to his family to send his children to school. But in the end, he ended up working six days a week for around two hundred, fifty dollars and was forced to give one hundred dollars backup that to his employer for accommodation costs and so I guess it's if you're on a construction site, it's looking at WHO's there. Do they speak English do they have appropriate? Even having a conversation with them to find out. Are they. Okay. Because a lot of these people feel like they don't have a voice, they often don't speak English and. Attend to. So you know in the case of healthcare workers keeping your eye out for people who come through the emergency department who maybe controlled by an older man, for example, looking out for signs of physical sexual emotional abuse.

You it came as. To tell you that came as a huge surprise to me, and it was kind of beautiful boost at a time where we could use it. So thank you I, appreciate that yeah. We don't get a lot of opportunities to celebrate a good thing so I wanted to mention that. Are you just feeling generally we feel like we've been going from you know one kind of bruising experience to the next every day there's something new and you know most recently we lost I'm justice GINSBURG. So I have to tell you that at some point in time and I don't know when that is I will process how I'm really really doing. But at days I am just geared up to fight. We I. Feel really disappointed that we didn't really get the time and space to truly honor Justice Ginsburg legacy to spend the time and space doing that over a period. But we are also facing a pretty existential threat around our democracy right now, and that's where my attention has to focus. Yeah, I. Remember you know that Friday when she passed in kind of thinking the same thing we were there were these two conversations going on right one about her legacy what that meant for. Women and this country generally and democracy, and what we're going to do about the crisis that you alluded to right I mean the truth is, is that we have to do something in relation to this nomination and this process which isn't really legitimate right so we're kind of morning and finding at the same time, which is really hard. It is hard. You know I like to think of it as in some ways we're fighting for her legacy and in her name you know she. Stood for Justice and equality she dreamed up a legal framework when the law had not yet recognized one and brilliantly advocated and led the Supreme Court to recognize the same. And even as recently as last terms, she really did the work of reminding the court what was important and so when when I think about how we have to galvanize over the next few weeks and how women in particular have to show up. Partly. I think will be doing it in her honor and we'll be doing it as a tribute to her legacy right and I think some of the energy that I felt I felt over the past week is a lot of energy from women kind of similarly to after the two thousand sixteen election and again in the two thousand eighteen during the two thousand eighteen midterms and we had the historic. In Congress, you feel the same thing like women are kind of energized to do something this election cycle you feel that again I do. I do and I almost wonder if people aren't syncing it in the way that I'm sensing an I am constantly getting calls in tax from women I know well and women I don't know very well asking what can I do on that to me is a sign that people are you know they have that they're not in their stomach and a feeling like they? Need to come out, come out around this election come out around the Supreme Court and so I I, wonder if everyone is considering bad in understanding and predictions about what's going to happen this fall one of the things I wanted to talk about was what her legacy means to you. Personally what it means to a lot of lot of women especially in the legal field and some of her most pivotal cases I was thinking through those do you have any that stick out to you as being I guess More pivotal or he'll be more impactful for women generally. Yeah. I mean she is obviously just a giant giant in women's rights giant in the legal field generally and. Did. That work at a time when it was unusual for women to even be lawyers at all
Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life and legacy as she lies in repose
"And tomorrow at the U. S. Supreme Court building. On Friday she will lie in state at the U. S. Capitol. She's the first woman ever to be given this honor all this week. We've been looking back at the life and legacy of Justice Ginsburg and we'll continue that today in 1993. When President Bill Clinton nominated Justice Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, he referred to her as quote the Thurgood Marshall of Gender Equality Law. Begins work herself sometimes pushed back on the comparison to Marshall and his trail blazing civil rights work. I'll take this opportunity to say I don't like the comparison of me. Deserving Marshall because my life was never in danger. His wass he went to his southern town in the morning. I couldn't be sure he'd be alive at the end of the day. I never had that. Kind of threat. That was Justice Ginsburg, speaking in 2018. While much of Ginsberg's legal work indicated clear understandings of racial discrimination, some critics have called out some of her more personal shortcomings when it came to race, for example, Like most of her male colleagues on the bench, she hired few law clerks who were black or people of color. Joining me now is Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women's Law, Center. Fatima, Thanks for being with me. Glad to be with you. So how did racial equality factor into some of justice Ginsburg's early legal work? One of the things that I think few people know is when she was at the two women's rights project. She out actually filed a really important Grief in the court in a case involving whether or not there should be the death penalty for rape. And she really used that case and that breathe Toa High light. Both the race tropes around sexual violence for black men. And also the way in which notions of purity that have been attached to white women that they actually are harmful to white women into everyone. And so you know, one of the things that I think may seem more quiet and subtle about her work is that she got really clearly the idea that we were all harmed by discrimination. We were all harm by Whatever form it took, whether is racism, sexism, disability discrimination that that is a through line throughout her work. In yesterday on this show. We've been

Does Size Matter When It Comes To Health
"Dr Stanford is an obesity medicine, physician, scientists, educator and policymaker at Massachusetts General. Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She also lectures at Brown and Teaches Med students at Harvard. Hello, and welcome well. Thanks for having me. It's an absolute delight to be here today with both of you. We're just we're the most accomplished person ever had this podcast like I cannot even begins. Batum were all you have. You guys are the best and this is. This is what I need to me through the rest of the day as I conquer the world. Yeah! We're honored that you made have the time the time to come talk to us just a little, so thank you so much. Did I get all of that right? You did I I. Guess What I can do is explain it to people because people are kind of like is all of that absolutely so? I'm obviously a mathematician, so the MD is the easiest part I think to understand on my completed my masters in public health nineteen years ago, so it shows you that I'm older than I appear. And that was in health policy management. My masters impose ministration was from the Harvard. Kennedy School, government and government. Currently working on my MBA executive MBA, so that hasn't quite made it to the end of my name, but I may lead US next year. Let me tell you guys. We'll have more to talk about. The the all the that you see after not team for fifteen, but it is nice that it goes with that, so those are all fellowships, so my fellow of the ANC, which is the American Academy pediatrics I'm a fellow of American College of Positions. American college positions represents all Physicians for adult so internal medicine, a fellow of the American Heart Association so basically. I'm looking at cardio metabolic health and being the fellow in the American Heart Association what represents that and then a fellow in the obesity society. Society which is the F. Toss? So you know these fellowships come you know after having accomplished in those different on areas domain, so I see children I see adults I work in this kind of Cardio Metabolic, health space obviously as obesity medicine physician I work in that space, so it really is a combination of kind of who I am, and just looking at Vegas, the letters that come after my name really talks to the work that I really care about and working with my patients patients across the wall. That's amazing. Wow -gratulations. What inspired you study obesity. One of the things that I was always very concerned about as a black one in a black woman who was born and raised in Atlanta Julie obviously in Boston is that's where mastermind Harvard are? I'm I was really. Perplexed I think is the word I WANNA. Use about the disproportionate impact obesity on communities of color particularly I'm the black community. That was what really brought me to this work, so if you go back twenty years ago, I think you've as you're in your twenties for twenty years ago. When I was doing my m H, you're not okay. Across. Our loved anyways Oh! That's Cute I. Love it still have you guys by? Decades! but one of the things I was really interested in seeing was like. I felt like there was a lot that we weren't doing to understand why. Obesity obesity disproportionately impacted certain groups and the groups that are more likely to kind of tackle these issues or the people that are representative, so those scripts so as a black woman and the group that is most disproportionately impacted by obesity I felt compelled to really approach and tackle this headline, so the projects that I was doing back at emory school of Public Health, back in ninety nine two thousand etc, We're looking at specifically obesity in the black community one project I was doing was. Was Looking at obesity in the Black Church community was looking at obesity among African, American, adolescent girls and one was looking at obesity within those that are law resources within the wick programs. It'll women's and children's for Ram, and how could we fix their Their plight in terms of recognizing that we can in some ways with the limited resources that they may have available to enhance their role house. So this was something that was kind of lingering. I didn't anticipate that I would choose obese medicine. 'cause that was not a field when I was twenty years ago. It really was not a field. There was no board certification in obesity medicine. The first Brit sort of patients directly. No Be Madison didn't start until two thousand well, which was well after I finished medical school, but I can tell you I was on. Call in the pediatric ICU when I was in residency and I as internal medicine pediatrics and I literally just googled obesity in medicine at about two thirty in the morning after I just intimated three kids in the ICU in a new. I was going to sleep at nights. I figured I'd just need to keep myself busy. And, the fellowship here at Mass General at Harvard popped up and I was like. What is this? You know I I really interested in obesity. I had no idea there was a fellowship, indeed the first ship and so I came and I spent three years. Doing a fellowship dedicated to understanding the disease of obesity.

"Hi. My, name's Tina dominy I'm the CEO Authentic strengths advantage, and it's a pleasure to be with you today and today we're going to talk about my new book. Authentic resilience and I'm going to share some tools with you that I think can help during these very challenging times. This is a very unique time in history that we're all facing right now. And everyone's been stretched to the limit and people are experiencing high stressors in anxiety and. You know they're. They're questioning their abilities, and there's just so much going on with people right now. Having relationship challenges because the stress, so I've written this book to help people to build their resilience, and we define resilience as the ability to bounce back from challenges, so with that said I wanNA take you to. One of the key concepts in the book, and that is moving from what's wrong to what strong so all of us in the past have been kind of wired really. Because of our survival instinct to focus on what's wrong, you know we're always looking to detect errors in to fix errors, and that's a great survival mechanism, but it's even more powerful with learning to focus on with strong dead. Our performance goes up. Archie goes up. There are a lot of benefits so today. We're going to talk about that. Really essential shift from focusing on what's wrong to focusing on our strengths with strong and we're GONNA do this with a three step process the first thing. Thing we're going to do. We're going to explore our strengths. And the many aspects of our strengths in our own uniqueness were also going to empower goals with our strengths, so we're gonNA look at ways that we can use our strengths to achieve more, and in most importantly to achieve life, satisfaction fulfillment, and finally we're going to consider how we can engage tur- strengths more consistently in all aspects of our lives, and this benefits are relationships as well so this is the three step process. And as we learn to use our strengths in those three ways, our resiliency goes up in energy and engagement achievement as I mentioned earlier, our relationships become more positive and healthier, and we achieve sense of wealthy, so we know from global peer reviewed. Research Studies that when we use our strings that we can achieve all of these. All of these benefits and more depending on how dedicated we are to really focusing on our strengths in using them consistently on a daily basis. So now we're GONNA take a look at this concept called the inner critic versus the inner coach and I'm going to share some tools with you to listen more consistently to your inner coach. Dr Daniel Ayman who wrote the forward to my new book. Authentic resilience talks about this concept called automatic negative thoughts, and he describes automatic negative thoughts is deceased in a were wired to survive right, and so we look like I said earlier at. At everything that's wrong. We tend to focus on what's wrong. and these automatic negative thoughts just pop into our minds is just part of the human experience. So what can we do to mitigate those I like to encourage my clients to turn up the volume on their inner coach in turn down the volume on their inner critic. How do we do that? It's what you choose to say to yourself and it's also learning to refute. When it enters your mind. And to do that very quickly, the research actually shows that before you have that cascade of all those stress hormones from negative by it only takes about a second of thinking it, so we really need to learn to refute it quickly and all share with you some ways to do that as well such as You know it. Let's say you have an automatic automatic negative thoughts, and we think I'll never be able to take this project. Something negative like that or I. Don't have what it takes for that. K You stop your saw mid-sentence insane. We'll wait a minute I can use these particular strengths I. I've done similar projects in the past. You can start to refute it very quickly within about a second, and that's the best. Sometimes. We don't respond that Quigley in. We really internalize that emotion, but they're still many ways that we can deal with that type of negative
The Electorette Podcast
Fatima Gross Graves, CEO & President of the National Women's Law Center
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner and this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with Fatima. Goss graves the president and CEO of the national. Women's law center. She joins to discuss the coronavirus outbreak, and how the pandemic will uniquely affect women women who are of course on the frontlines as essential workers. We also discuss the childcare crisis, and we talk about a recent report published by the National Women's Law Center I'm the investment needed to adequately fund the country's childcare knees? So here's my conversation with Pajama. Gos- graves. Screens welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you. So we are about. Three months. I think into pandemic now. That sounds surreal to say. But you know. The economic fallout has been really swift. It's been head-spinning. There have been millions of people out of work. You know overnight. But we're just starting to parse through which groups specifically will be the hardest economically when I was specifically talk about women. Can you give me a quick summary of what the picture looks like for women right now economically. Crisis like the line we are in is gonNA always reveal inequalities that exist before one of the things that we know is bad about one in three women who are working are considered essential worker is in. That's in part because women are disproportionately in the healthcare system, both as nurses doctors in also in nursing homes sped. It is also because women work in retail and in manufacturing jobs like at Amazon, so they are disproportionately. Cashier is in big stores that have stayed open in on the front lines. You'll see them on the street doing things like delivering nail, and and so as a result, it's about one in three of women who are working right now are are right now front line. In working without hazard, pay working without protective equipment to ensure that they can work with safety and at the same time when we look at who lost their jobs quickly that women disproportionately have lost their jobs over the last two months in. That's especially to black and Brown women. And part of the reason that is again is job segregation. It's where women worked. So women make up a disproportionate number of people who work in restaurants that had to close in close quickly proportionate number of people who work as. Housekeepers in hotels who who work in small retail who work as domestic workers in and we're talking about jobs where people aren't working in sitting on a huge safety net to begin with these are all jobs that were already in the lowest paid fields. and. Were women were working in many many states just for seven twenty five an hour, trying to scrape by enough. So wait, you have. Is that about forty percent of the people who were working in those jobs about forty percent women who were working in those fields were already basically working fulltime making poverty wages. For the ten domecq incident you if you're picturing frontline workers. If you're lucky, enough and I'm probably have lucky in quotes. You can't see me on a podcast to work. And deep in sharp unemployment at the same time, women are more likely to be caregivers, and Co or sole breadwinners, and we're in a time where that care crisis that we have right now around people who have either been forced to work in this period outside the home or who have been working from home, but also parenting in home. Schooling is largely being ignored. As states race to reopen without a plan, a big part of the problem with having no plan as you haven't figured out. What are people going to do about having to go back to work without schools without summer camps without child-care? Exactly, that's a huge piece because when you look at the stories about people who are rushing to get out in these states that have open or starting to open early. Early you know what are the pictures of their of people who are sitting in restaurants and bars, and who are the people were on the front lines serving them primarily women and those women have children at home in their responsible for child care, and they don't. They don't have the childcare safety net there to help them. I was GONNA. Say I can tell you we're going to say on the. Interstate period, but Came in I, don't care and safety net. Yeah but one of the numbers you mentioned. It's one third of the essential workers are women right now? The positions that have been deemed to be essential one those are women well. It's one in three women who work are essential workers who it's in the in in some ways, it's an even larger percentage, so it's not that women are spread in so many many different occupations, one third of them are actually frontline workers right now. I think we have this image in her head that there's some tiny percentage of people who are out there on the front lines and. Everyone else is not for women. That's very much. Not The case may are on the frontlines right now in really large proportions, and those are just the ones that were talking about who are working frontline out there right now. We're not even talking about the many people who are also working from home. Everyone struggling with care crisis
