Good news! Youth in Sweden will be urged to read Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s essay, “We Should All Be Feminists,” which is adapted from her TED Talk. The Nigerian novelist speaks about general stereotypes related to feminism - feminists hate men and bras, they strive for supremacy of women over men, only women can be feminists. How many times have you heard a man call himself a feminist? Probably never. Or very few times.

It's time for us to change the way we raise both girls and boys in order to create a world of new women and men. And it's great when governments support those efforts! Yet another good example Sweden gives to the world.

To start off the week we offer you the story of Shaziya Tayub about her unforgettable experiences in Valencia, Spain in July this year, during the youth exchange Youth and Human Rights hosted by Fundación por los Derechos Humanos 10.12.48 (Spain), in cooperation with Nukanti (UK) and Tiwtmin Tiwtmin Association (Morocco). Unfortunately, Moroccan participants were not granted visas and could not take part which shows once again the inequality that still exists in today´s society and makes it even more urgent for young people to get active on human rights issues. http://ow.ly/VRhyX

Today women in Saudi Arabia are voting and standing for office for the first time in history! This is only the third time when Saudis have gone to the polls, as there were no elections in the country between 1965 and 2005. This is a big step in the advancement of human rights of women, as Participation and Inclusion are among the basic human rights principles as recognized by the UN. http://ow.ly/VNHKx

Hear the moving story of Sonita Alizadeh, an Afghan rapper who escaped from child marriage after her family "had to sell" her to "buy a bride for my brother". Hip-hop is a powerful tool to give a voice to the voiceless, to engage and empower young people to become agents of social change! #StopChildMarriage http://ow.ly/VI0mw

November 25 is recognized as International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Last week various organizations that work to fight gender-based violence organized a commemoration event in Cali, under the slogan We Miss Them. More than 80 men gathered to commemorate the 66 women who have been killed this year, by embroidering their names. #EllasNosHacenFalta
