Melona Agido is part of a global trend, writes Zuhal Yesilyurt Gunduz, associate professor in the International Relations Department at TED University in Ankara, Turkey, in a recent paper on the feminization of migration. "In the past it was mainly men who went to countries far away; women came as followers. In the last 20 years, however, this has changed so much that today over half of all migrants are women."

This is a completely different world. There is such an opportunity to destroy people online now in a way that never existed when we were young. You could try to do it in person but think how difficult it was to yell at people and have them yell back at you. That is different from the distant, anonymous, trolling. I don't know if the government is doing anything to help people about this. I read a lot of young women asking what should I do, who I should contact, who I should go to. I am not sure what the right answer is but it is becoming a real issue for a lot of young feminists.

"With recent generations raised on abstinence-only, shame-based sexuality 'education,' is it any wonder that we now are offered a sexual fantasy that insists on a female character who is clueless, uninitiated and in fact has never even masturbated? Nor is there much new about Fifty Shades, especially sexually. Is there really anything edgy or brave about a dominant man and a naïve girl with big eyes? It is just an R-rated version of a Disney movie. It is incredibly depressing that badly written erotica acting out very old sexual scripts for women and men has become so popular."

Vilhjalmsdottir encourages her students to have "bold" discussions and take stances on domestic and global issues. She creates time and opportunity for debate and uncensored speech. She and her students analyze media narratives and watch music videos to reflect on women's objectification and the possible pornification of women in these videos.

The proposed legislation presents a galling double standard. While seeming to seek to protect the life a woman is carrying, it simultaneously puts her life and that of her child in danger, particularly in a domestic violence situation.

"We demand that these good men, because there are good men out there, not to just be silent bystanders," said Kristin Hetle, from UN Women, during a U.N. panel on March 11 called "#thingsmendo: Men and boys against gender stereotypes and violence against women." "Men have to realize that for women to hold more seats, men will have to hold fewer seats."

"Today, we're the only advanced country on earth that doesn't guarantee paid sick leave or paid maternity leave to our workers," Obama said. "Forty-three million workers have no paid sick leave. Forty-three million. Think about that. And that forces too many parents to make the gut-wrenching choice between a paycheck and a sick kid at home. So I'll be taking new action to help states adopt paid leave laws of their own."

"We are having a difficult time implementing sexual education in schools and even more since we are now facing a rise of radical groups that do not want to see sex education being taught to the children."
