This discussion will be around the issues surrounding the sexualisation of young women including Media representation and over exposure to sexual imagery. This discussion will include two speakers Betiel Beraki (Object) and Sarah Owen whom are female community leaders and academic experts in gender and equality issues. Women from the local community will be invited to join in the discussion and have their voices heard. The event will held 3 workshops (30 min each) about how the media, society and peer pressure sexualise women:

  • Media and imagery
  • Media and language
  • Media and portrayal of women from different cultures

 

CINEMA: The aim is to celebrate “Women Go Global” and highlight women's global issues by showing movies from regions where women's rights are impaired by political or traditional establishments.

In Hastings:

 

    • Over the last 10 years there have been rapid change in population in Hastings and St Leonards, this contributed to establishing wide range of new cultural programmes bringing people together from different backgrounds: For example, the International Food Festival, the Eat Global, which was launched in March 2012, celebration of the Chinese New Year, International Mother Tongue Language Day, International Women’s Day, Festival of Cultures and Faiths, Eat Global festival, Garden Full of Delights, Universal Children’s Day, HIO Football Tournament, Refugee Week, Black History Month, St Leonards Festival, and Hastings Got Culture.

 

    • 5 Mother Tongue schools have been established since last 5 years:
      • Arabic
      • Polish
      • Russian Rainbow
      • Bangladeshi
      • Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese)

 

    • Hastings has become one of most diverse towns in the South East Coast with 56 different languages spoken in Hastings and St Leonards, a wide range of vibrant voluntary community groups from BME backgrounds.

 

    • There been some change in religious diversity too:
      • 2001- Christian 57K; Buddhist 274; Hindu 226; Muslim 635; No Religion 18K
      • 2012 -Christian 46K; Buddhist 475; Hindu 423; Muslim 1159; No Religion 33K

  • Approximately 100,000 women are raped each year, and just 6% of reported rapes end in a conviction.

 

  • Men outnumber women in parliament 4 to 1, and just 4 of the 23 cabinet members are women.

 

  • Women working full-time earn 16% less than men, and two-thirds of low paid workers are women.

Hello i am a consultant for the body shop at home and i was wandering if you would be interested in me doing a fundraising event or party for your group, or if you have any events already lined up that i could do a stall at and make a donation to you. It would be great to hear from you

Thank you

Nope, in this case, it is also great for wearing around your wrist.

Stores selling estate jewelry may have many collections to satiate the antique jewelry enthusiast's cravings.
More specifically, color for stars in gemstones differ.
