"My family and, you know, and everything and, you know, since Holly wanted to go, you know, and I stopped. State prison authorities said, had they known about lusk's assault, they would have investigated it. She eventually reported her suicide attempt to an officer and was placed in her own cell She still deals with harassment and discrimination from both fellow inmates and officers. Is it worth it? I think to myself, is this worth it? You know, it feels pain. You know, why? Why was I born this way? They say, they say God doesn't make mistakes. Well, that was meant to be this way. She wrote to prison officials asking to be moved to a woman's facility and told her defense lawyer about her harassment. She was eventually put in touch with the advocacy group, gender justice. They said they would file a lawsuit on her behalf against the Minnesota Department of Corrections. Told me that they would help me. My world changed. And I was so happy that I had a voice and that somebody would fight for me. Because nobody's ever thought for me. The lawsuit, which was filed in June, says the Minnesota Department of Corrections is discriminating against lusk, and that she shouldn't have been housed with men. Lusk also wants the judge to rule that the DOC denying her gender affirming surgery is unconstitutional. Other advocacy groups have filed similar suits on the behalf of other trans inmates across the country. Some, like those filed in New York, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C., have successfully changed prison policies for trans inmates. Matt's reporting from NPR's Jacqueline Diaz, who is back with us now, and Jacqueline, as you pointed out, this is all incredibly complicated and I would imagine that there's also some opposition to housing inmates based on their gender identity. Definitely, take, for example, California. The state changed its laws and started moving trans women to women's facilities, but a group called the women's liberation front has sued to try to block that move. They say they're concerned about the potential for assault by inmates transferred from men's facilities. But other people I spoke to like Christina don't see that as a significant risk. They just want to move somewhere safe without fear of being attacked or hurt in prison. Jaclyn, thank you so much for sharing your reporting with us. Thank you. That is NPR's Jacqueline Diaz. She's been reporting on the experience of imprisoned trans inmates. If you or someone you know

"Women and girls marching Kabul They can't justice We are sick of captivity Women and girls were largely banned from secondary schools since the Taliban seized power 8 months ago Officials promised they could return in late March but in the background analysts say powerful hardline clerics demanded the Bambi extended For them just the idea of teenage girls leaving their homes was unacceptable Other Taliban officials have suggested they change their minds because teenage girls needed a more modest uniform to attend class More than the standard headscarf they already wear The girls found out about the Taliban's backtrack when they turned up to class One teacher recalled the scene to NPL's Kabul producer fossil in Alaska ziza We told them they had to leave Because that crying they played it We are ready to wear broca's but please let us stay Since then there's been sporadic protests by young women There's gatherings of scholars intellectuals and feminists who call on the Taliban to change course And in the past few weeks a new cohort has joined their call Taliban affiliated clerics are also pushing back against this decision Ibrahim Baja is an analyst with the international crisis group He says these clerics come from all over Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan They're trying to convince the hardliners that this decision is detrimental and they need to agree to opening their schools Like cleric Jelena ahn zada in Herat And how His son molana mohela says his father issued a fight while supporting girls education because he felt the Taliban were giving Muslims a bad name by banning them from secondary education The most high profile pushback so far has come from a Pakistani cleric mufti taki osmani one of the Muslim world's most influential religious scholars He sent a short letter to the Taliban leadership that was leaked to the media He argues that ban is fodder for anti Islamic sentiment and that girls can be educated in segregated institutions The clerics are a lot harder to ignore than feminist scholars or girls And it's embarrassing for the Taliban to be chastised by so many scholars Bajas again That seems to be I'm doing the claim of the hardliners that they are in majority or that the majority of collects are with them when it comes to their decision to reverse the education It's clear there's also resentment against those hardliners within the Taliban itself At a gathering of senior Taliban bureaucrats that an NPR producer attended they complained the ban was making them look incompetent And out of touch with how Afghanistan has changed And it has changed After nearly two decades of western backed rule There is a huge awareness for the importance of girls education Women and girls some of them have been leading the whole financial support for their families and these all has happened only because these women and girls were educated Samara hamidi is Amnesty International South Asia campaigner and an Afghan woman She says perhaps one reason why Afghans are largely uniting around the demand to send girls to secondary school is that just about every family has a school aged daughter They all have teenage girls and they are all traumatized right now Even if you don't have a teenage girl in your house if you have a daughter of a younger age if this nation is not going to be reserved there is no future for these girls The Ministry of Education says they're ready to open classes as soon as the leadership makes a decision But it's unclear whether the hardliners will relent and allow goals to attend secondary school Because this pushback in particular by these Taliban affiliated clerics is on precedented and so and I'll say nobody knows what will happen next Dear Hadid NPR news Islamabad Enron CNN plus quibi all failed ventures and all names printed on one woman's growing collection of dead company swag And Pierre's Jacqueline Diaz has this story CNN plus is turning off the lights tomorrow after a loads of hype And hype is key for Christina Warren For the last few years she's collected swag like mugs t-shirts pop sockets from companies that fly high then crash and burn Like I have MoviePass merch and Ozzy media merch And I've quibi merch She sort of an accidental collector It started because she'd come home from tech conferences with free merch ways to promote a new company and then realize what she had was sort of a gag It's mostly companies but it is occasionally like disastrous or failed you know like online things like fyre festival Remember the 2017 festival that was meant to be a cultural moment but just turned into chaos in the Caribbean Warren has real fyre festival t-shirts Probably some of our favorite items Look she knows that for the people who worked for these companies the end is tough I'm not rooting for any company to fail And I think that because I've been part of startups and I know that when things don't go the way you wanted it to it can be really painful but she knows there is great irony in these ventures that the public can share in Fast is another one of those where the hype didn't seem to match with what the company was doing and that makes the fall that much more extreme which to me then makes it funnier to be out some place wearing a shirt from one of those things Fast of course got a lot of buzz with its plan to help people expedite online purchases But earlier this month its CEO announced it was shutting down There is one company that Warren is dying to get merch from Theranos My white whale the thing I haven't been able to obtain yet is I've been looking for something officially from theranos But the price is pretty steep and she can't be sure that stuff online is legit She's hoping that a former employee out there can hand something over Really Anything I hope that someday I'll be able to get something whether it's.

"They were quite big Have a listen to this one in Islamabad So I spoke to a columnist and political analyst farce Zucker and he says those numbers suggest bipartisanship is not on the table for now I think that they've also been pretty encouraged by the kind of organic outpouring in the streets They saw in three four major cities yesterday And it's important to remember that that outpouring happened without the star power of Iran And more protests are expected on Wednesday more concerningly some of Khan's followers have been chanting against the military calling them thieves and traders And now we'll have to see how the army will respond What does this mean for relations with the U.S. now that Khan is ousted Well Sharif says he wants to have good relations with the west and so has the chief of army staff And that's a signal that I worked to repair the damage made by Khan but it also means that Khan will likely double down on these plot allegations and use them to whip up anti American sentiment as a ballot box winner And that could spin easily out of control given that militant attacks are on the rise right now in Pakistan That's NPR's DIA Hadid Thank you Thank you Daniel Some sellers and creators on the online marketplace Etsy are going on a weeklong strike starting today They say the company's fees and unfair practices make staying on Etsy untenable for their businesses And they hope their strike forces the company to address their concerns NPR's Jacqueline Diaz has been following this story and joins us now Hi Jacqueline Hi there Hi So let me just make sure I understand here They're calling this a strike but these sellers they're not actually employees of Etsy right Yeah that's right They're independent artists that use Etsy as a platform to sell their goods which is their business These are artists that sell anything from say a Victorian gothic wedding dress to like stickers And for the next week they're putting their online shops in vacation mode and putting a message on their page that says they're on strike But you know this is not a traditional strike as we know it The sellers aren't employees and they're not part of a union I talked to Lori Peterson who has a shop on Etsy technically we are just customers of Etsy because they have a platform and we're on it but we are also the laborers for them And they make money directly off our labor So that's why we're using the term strike Not all the sellers on Etsy are on strike but some of them are what exactly are there concerns So the thing that sparked calls for a strike was Etsy saying they were going to raise transaction fees by 30% And that's a cost that's taken out of a seller's commission from a sale The company said that was going to start today But also sellers want to be able to opt out of Etsy's off site ads And these are ads that promote a shops listings on the Internet They're ads created by Etsy but then they can cost sellers an additional 12 to 15% in fees Another complaint is that sellers want Etsy to tackle resellers on the platform And these are people who are copying other artists work and then making money off of that Well what's been the reaction from Etsy so far to all this So they said the fees will go toward marketing more customer support and removing those exact listings like those resellers But Etsy says that of their 5.3 million active sellers the ones actually striking just make up a small portion just about a few thousand They said this shows that a lot of sellers are happy with the way that Etsy runs its company And I actually spoke to one seller who is opposed to the strike Nicole Lewis thinks sellers should do more things on their end to cut down on the impact of the fees on their businesses Is this the increase is making you nervous your prices are not correct And it's not as simple as raising your prices to make up for it What are some other changes as a seller that you can make on your end to cut down your cost of goods Can you buy in bulk at a cheaper price per box to save X amount of money There are so many things that sellers can be doing behind the scenes on their end that they're responsible for that can cut down these costs directly For a lot of the sellers I spoke to raising their prices is just not something they want to do This is Lori Peterson again I don't want to milk my customers for as much as I can get out of them because I know I could raise my prices and I could do that but I don't feel like I you know I feel like I owe it to my customers to provide them a reasonable price and I want to see my art in the world That's what it is for me as an artist What happens if this week long strike is over And Etsy doesn't really make any real concessions to the strikers What's their long-term plan For now they'll see their strike through this week but many told me they are more than willing to go on.

"Two weeks from now, the Winter Olympics will get underway in Beijing, but could we one day be saying goodbye to the winter games as we know them? Well, a new study by the university of Waterloo says that is a possibility thanks to climate change. NPR's Jacqueline Diaz has more. It goes without saying, the Winter Olympics need, snow, ice, and overall cold temperatures. Rosie Brennan is an Olympic cross country skier. So it's a wide ranging sport of endurance, strength, power, kind of all of it wrapped into one on snow. To do this, Brennan really needs that perfect snowy condition. You know, obviously we need snow on the whole course to ski. But researchers say a warming climate is disrupting Olympic sports like cross country skiing, as well as the cities that host these games. They say if greenhouse gases are not seriously reduced, virtually none of the previous 21 cities that hosted the winter Olympic Games could reliably do so again. Daniel Scott is one of the researchers at the university of Waterloo. Under the high emission scenario, it's a very different outcome. And late century, we're left with one climate reliable location being super on Japan. By reliable, he means a cold enough location that offers prime safe conditions for winter athletes to compete in. Athletes and their coaches have started to notice the changes. Here's Brennan again. You know, I think the thing that we see now is with warmer weather, there's less snowfall. So we're much more reliant on man-made snow, and man-made snow doesn't act the same as natural snow. It tends to be much firmer. It gets icier faster. It's faster surface. And that poses a risk for more injuries. Climate change isn't just affecting winter games. Last summer's games in Tokyo saw extreme heat and heavy rains. Scott says there may come appointment outdoor games may have to move indoors or be held at a different time of year, all together. Brennan says, if that happens, something is lost.
