In Bangladesh many Girls find themselves living and working on the streets. They have been forced onto the streets by family breakdown, abuse, severe poverty and displacement. Some work to support themselves, others to support their families. Their work is exploitative, hazardous and sometimes illegal. Many turn to theft to survive, and to substance abuse to cope with this harsh reality. Their status, lifestyle and their occupations frequently bring them into contact with the law. For example, 19.1% of Bangladesh’s ½ million street children report being arrested by the police.
For the last few years, I have been really interested in the topic of masculinity. I came across news about this documentary--called The Mask You Live In--when it was still being filmed, and I have watched the trailer so many times because it is so profound! I'm sharing it here because I think other World Pulse members would enjoy it too.
Families of 19 persons who ‘disappeared’ in the last two years in Dhaka have sought Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s intervention to ‘get them back’. The family members of the persons, who ‘disappeared’ during the BNP-led Alliance’s movement to halt the last general election on Jan 5, 2014, said they do not believe the ‘victims’ have died. The ‘disappeared’ persons include BNP’s Dhaka city Ward-25 unit General Secretary Sajedul Islam Sumon.
I am attaching here a guide for educators and others who wish to engage with men and boys on the topic of gender-based violence. The societal pressures on men and boys to "act like men" are so harmful, and are a direct cause of gender-based violence. This is why it is extremely important to engage men/boys in gender-based violence programming--it may even be more important than engaging with women and girls.

Descriptions of current events, especially the rather dramatic ones, often refrain from highlighting how these events affect individual lives, and often how these events affect individual women’s lives in dramatic and less dramatic ways.
English translation by community member Liz Poulsen In our country—the Democratic Republic of the Congo—gender-based violence still continues in the workplace, at home, in marketplaces, and everywhere else. We will begin with some points on these categories of violence.
Press Release Honoring Digital Do-Gooders: Dewey Winburne Community Service Awards [Dewey Winburne Logo] Dewey Winburne was one of the original co-founders of the SXSW Interactive Festival, but he was many other things in the Austin community: a family man, a teacher, a visionary, a connector and an innovator. He believed that technology could bridge the digital divide and help those less fortunate than others. Although Winburne passed away in 1999, his legacy continues. His life exemplified how one individual can truly make an impact in their community.

La peur de ne pas arriver à la fin de l’année amène beaucoup de gens de ma communauté à croire aux puissances occultes et autres forces maléfiques que détiendraient certaines personnes dont ils accusent de sorcellerie. Les boucs émissaires sont généralement les femmes, surtout les femmes âgées. Ces personnes à l’esprit borné, pensent que c’est durant cette période que les sorcières choisissent pour jeter le mal sur les gens, en gargot local « manger leurs victimes ».
