#Heroes #MustRead! "Heroes often come from the most unlikely of places. Photographer Platon, known for his unflinching close-up portraits of presidents, dictators and other powerful icons of our era, found his in the surgical suites and recovery rooms of a small-town hospital in one of the most traumatized nations on earth, the Democratic Republic of Congo."

A l'occasion de la sortie du film "Noces" demain, France 3 a donné la parole à W4 pour évoquer la problématique des mariages forcés en Europe. 15 millions de filles sont mariées chaque année avant leur majorité à travers le monde, aidez-nous à faire reculer cette pratique et à protéger les droits fondamentaux des filles.
Pour visionner le reportage, c'est ici (à partir de 21min 40):

Journée internationale de tolérance zéro à l'égard des mutilations génitales féminines #EndFGM
Aujourd'hui encore, chaque jour 8000 filles risquent d'être victimes de MGF ! Ensemble nous pouvons agir pour faire reculer cette pratique aux conséquences dévastatrices sur la santé des filles et des femmes.
Nous y sommes presque grâce à votre soutien (75% des fonds levés), aidez-nous à atteindre l'objectif pour que ces filles puissent s’estimer, s’épanouir, et devenir des femmes citoyennes à part entière !

"Just as daesh used women to disintegrate society, we want to use women to unite the society.”

Dear W4 Friends, will you be marching this Saturday? If so, what are your reasons?
"March organizers have said the event’s primary focus is to promote equal rights for women and to defend marginalized groups. “The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world, that women's rights are human rights,” the group’s website says. {...} However, they have also noted that the march is not an ‘anti-Trump’ march. It is a pro-women march. A quote on the website states: Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights."

"The Disability March organizers invite people living with disabilities to submit their names, photos and a statement on why they want to "march." The images and text will be uploaded to the website in time for the Women's March on Jan. 21, creating a virtual archive of people showing solidarity with the main event in Washington, D.C."

"In one week, hundreds of thousands of women and men are expected to descend on the streets of Washington D.C. in a show of solidarity for women’s rights — and to protest the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States. In conjunction with the Women’s March on Washington, the Amplifier Foundation issued a public call seeking art submissions to help illustrate the monumental occasion. The group received more than 5,000 submissions and this week chose the final eight graphics that will be mass produced and serve as the official illustrations for the march."
