From New York Times:
Dear good men, instead of whining, please step up to the plate and take a leadership role to advance healthy masculinity among your brothers. That would involve some serious introspection and honest examination of the male role in all forms of violence against women: domestic abuse, rape, prostitution, pornography and the commercial sex industry.

I am hoping that Refuge, a women's charity that helps hundreds of women every year become survivors instead of victims allows me to support them with my new novel.

আসলে কেন ছেলেদের মধ্যে এই রকম ধাওরনা জন্মায় যে একটা মেয়েকে "পাওয়া" টা অনেক বড় ব্যাপার। পছন্দ হইলে "পাইতে" হবে। দুইটা মানুষের সম্পর্ক যে আসলে পারস্পরিক ভাল লাগার বিষয় এইটা কেন বুঝেনা। এই দায় দায়িত্ব বা কারন আসলে কোন একটা দিক দেখলে বুঝা যায় না। যথার্থ সেক্স এডুকেশন নাই। তাই মেয়েদের কোন ভাবে কিছু করে ফেলতে পারাটাই আসল। মেয়েদের কে "ব্যবহার্য্য পন্য" হিসেবে দেখানো - মিডিয়া, সিনেমা, গল্প । তাই একটা জিনিস পছন্দ হইলে সেটা কিনে ঘরে আনারমত, মেয়ে পছন্দ হইলে সেটা নিজের অধিকারে আনার ইচ্ছা জাগে... 

এইগুলা পাল্টাইতে হইলে পুরা সমাজ পালতায় ফেলতে হবে। কিন্তু শুরু টা একটা জায়গায় হওয়া উচিত। একটা মেয়ের সাথে শারীরিক সম্পর্কে মেয়েটার মত না থাকলে সেটার যে আসলে কোন মজা নাই এইটা বুঝলেই অনেক কাজে দিত মনে হয়।

“What could be more basic than the right to walk down one’s street safely, without facing harassment?

Have you seen any of Snickers' ”You're not you when you're hungry” campaign? They show someone doing something out of character — until they eat a Snickers and then return to their normal self. They have a new commercial in this campaign that was filmed in Australia that caught my attention.

Research conducted by Rape Crisis Scotland in advance of ‘This is not an invitation to rape me’, a national campaign to challenge woman-blaming attitudes, found that 20% of people believed that women contribute to rape by wearing revealing clothing, and an enormous 40% subscribed to the view that women could be considered culpable to some degree of they “put themselves in risky situations”.

“TV and film are fictional stories, we should use them to create the change we want to see”. Although TV and film are fictional stories, they are stories with a great deal of power. Sometimes art imitates life, and other times life imitates art. Taking our cue from that truism, we need to capitalize on how these fictional stories can be used to influence individual actions and community responses in reality

According to many studies and surveys, sexual violence against women (and to a lesser extent, men) is pervasive in the US armed forces, as well as its military academies. The Department of Defense estimates that there were some 26,000 incidents of sexual assault and unwanted sexual contact in 2012, with only 10 percent or so having been reported. Virtually no serious punishment is ever meted out.

The slap on the wrist administered to US Army Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair was predictable and entirely in line with the character and policies of the American military.

Hi everyone.  It's time to move over Mr Grey, there's a new man in town!  The Eyes, sold out within 6 days of hitting the USA and flying off shelves everywhere.  My new novel, Choices-The Darker Years is due to be released next week with £1.50 being donated to Women's Aid per novel sold.  I hope to raise not only money but awareness and help women become survivors instead of victims but most of all I would love to be able to fund an outreach programme for the children.  Please check out my website and have a good weekend.
