International Women's Day History

On Oct. 24, 1975, 90% of Icelandic women went on strike, refusing to do any work at their homes or their jobs. It was the largest demonstration in the nation's history and shut down the entire country. Airports were closed, schools were closed, and hospitals couldn't function. The strike had an immediate and lasting impact. The following year, Iceland's Parliament (now half women) passed a law guaranteeing women equal pay and paid maternity leave. Four years later, Iceland elected the world's first female President. And today, Iceland has the highest gender equality in the world.

I think about this history in Iceland quite a bit.  There's nothing we can't do when people come together to fight for a just cause.

This is a cool story. You may have heard of this laughably racist TV show called "Homeland" where you're only served two types of people: creepy, terroristy Brown Muslims and brilliant, bold White Muricans.

So "Homeland" was filming an episode recently, and they were desperately looking for an Arab grafitti artist to work on the set, as they wanted Arabic grafitti on the walls of the Middle Eastern bombed out street on set. But no Arab artist would agree to do any work for "Homeland" all of them saying that it was a silly, racist show. (Now, that's pretty cool in of itself).

Anyway, finally, they found one willing to help them out, Egyptian artist Heba Amin. But Heba had plans to pull off the ultimate prank. They asked her to write things like "Muhammad is the Greatest" (hmmm, at least say Allah, no?) but instead, she took note of the sloppiness of the producers in how they do not fact check anything about the Middle East, Arabs, Muslims, Islam etc and ingeniously took a risk, using that sloppiness against them.

She figured they would not check her work so went ahead and wrote in Arabic: "Homeland is Racist" and "Homeland is a comedy but we ain't laughing" and "‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬." And sure enough the grafitti made it on the aired episode embarassing the show and its producers. More importantly, it forced a conversation blitz in the media about the show's racism.

Brilliant work, Heba!

They'd been waiting for more than a decade. And then Monday night in San Francisco, where the Embarcadero meets the Bay, Craigslist took over the Exploratorium for a long-awaited event. They handed out bottle openers with built-in flash drives, as well as t-shirts and Craigslist stickers with ...

No wonder so many families are risking their lives to escape. This literally looks like hell.
