Need inspiration? Take a look at the winners of UN Women India's Freedom from Violence for Women and Girls photo competition.

1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual violence. Yet violence against women is not inevitable. Specialized programmes and campaigns and a mobilized global movement can help prevent violence against women and girls before it happens.

In sub-Saharan Africa, 71% of the burden of collecting water for households falls on women and girls. In total, they spend 40 billion hours a year collecting water. That's equivalent to a year’s worth of labour by the entire workforce of France. Unpaid care and domestic work contribute to economic development and human well-being, but the burden of this work is unequally distributed. Register now for "Why We Care about Care", a free online moderated course on the care economy by the ‪#‎unwomenTC‬: http://bit.ly/1VQsC9S (Deadline: 21 March)

"...Swartz did not live for technology. He wanted to make a difference."
 
He was a hacker, entrepreneur and idealist who killed himself aged 26. An important new book puts his story in context
In January 2011, Aaron Swartz was caught downloading millions of journal articles from the JSTOR scholarly database, via a laptop smuggled into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The US Attorney’s Office in Boston indicted him in federal court on four felony charges, later increased to 13, claiming wire fraud and breach of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The maximum prison sentence was 95 years, the maximum fine over $3m.

Add this to the list of damn good reasons why I have a celebrity crush on +Idris Elba​.
The actor gave a powerful speech to the U.K. Parliament describing what diversity really means to him.
