International Women’s Day around the world

When God created women he was simply showing us that he could create the most beautiful thing in the world!

Each year, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8. 

According to UNESCO, the celebration of International Women’s Day first started from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the 20th century across  North America and Europe.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality. 

International Women’s Day has occurred for well over a century with the first gathering held in 1910.

So, how does the world celebrate beautiful sex? 

Well, let’s start with Italy!

International Women’s Day, or Festa della Donna, is celebrated throughout Italy by the giving of mimosa blossoms, a tradition believed to have originated in Rome after World War II. The flower holds the same symbolic gesture of love as a red rose on Valentine’s Day. 

China

International Women’s Day was first celebrated in China in 1922, following the lead of other communist countries. It has been a national holiday since 1949. To mark International Women’s Day 2021, zebra crossings in Changsha in central China were painted pink and daubed with red hearts.

Poland

Attitudes towards abortion remain oppressive in Poland, prompting International Women’s Day to become a day of pro-choice protest. Actress Jessica Chastain joined women on the streets of Warsaw in 2017, while women marched across Poland on International Women’s Day in 2018 and 2019.

International Women’s Day is observed as a symbol of respect for victims of fights for equal rights for women. It was established in 1910. Until 1993 it was even a public Holiday in Poland.

Turkey

In Turkey, International Women’s Day has been marked in recent years by women protesting against gender inequality, domestic violence, and sexual abuse – demonstrations that have often received a heavy-handed response from authorities. 

Argentina

In Argentina, International Women’s Day has been celebrated since the early 20th century. Much like other countries, they celebrate women by giving and receiving flowers and other gifts. However, protests for gender equality have also taken place in Argentina around International Women’s Day over the last five years, with women marching for gender equality, an end to femicide, and reproductive rights.

Nepal

International Women’s Day in Nepal is marked as an official holiday, so women actually get the day off work.

In 2017, a rally was held in the country’s capital of Kathmandu to “send a message that women can become what they want”. People took to the streets in their work uniforms to protest women earning on average 24% less than men across the country. 

Armenia

In Armenia, International Women’s Day is a national holiday that’s also referred to as the ‘Day of Protection of Your Rights’. It marks the start of an unofficial ‘Women’s Month’, culminating in the queasily-titled ‘Motherhood and Beauty Day’ on 7 April.

So here’s to all the incredible women around the world, shine on! Not only today, but every single day! 

Happy Women’s Day!

Protecting EU Citizens from Nonconsensual Pornographic Deepfakes Law in 2023

The European Union’s current and proposed laws fail to adequately protect citizens from the harms of nonconsensual pornographic deepfakes—AI-generated images, audio, or videos that use an individual’s likeness to create pornographic material without their consent. To protect victims of this abuse, the EU must take steps to amend existing legislative proposals and encourage soft law approaches.


Although deepfakes have legitimate commercial uses, 96 percent of deepfake videos found online are nonconsensual pornography. Perpetrators can use them to harass, extort, offend, defame, or embarrass individuals by superimposing their likeness onto sexual material without permission. The ease of creating and distributing deepfakes due to the increasing availability of AI tools has made this form of abuse easier than ever.

The Digital Services Act (DSA) obliges platforms to demonstrate the procedures by which illegal content can be reported and taken down. However, this will have little impact on the spread of nonconsensual pornographic deepfakes since the bill does not classify them as illegal. The DSA also does not cover 94 percent of deepfake pornography, which is hosted on dedicated pornographic websites instead of mainstream platforms. Moreover, the EU dropped a proposal in the DSA that would have required porn sites hosting user-generated content to swiftly remove material flagged by victims as depicting them without permission.

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act, likely to pass into law in 2023, requires creators to disclose deepfake content. But this does little to protect victims, as the demand for deepfakes does not depend on their authenticity. The Directive on Gender-Based Violence proposed in 2022 criminalizes sharing intimate images without consent and could include deepfakes in its scope. However, the bill fails to cover nudity that is not explicitly sexual and sexual imagery that is not wholly nude. Moreover, it only applies to material made accessible to many end-users when even sharing deepfakes with a single person can cause great harm.

These legislative proposals must be amended to protect victims better and deter perpetrators. Additionally, the EU should encourage soft law approaches such as public awareness campaigns, self-regulatory codes of practice, and the development of deepfake detection tools by law enforcement. With a combination of hard and soft law approaches, the EU can protect its citizens from the harms of nonconsensual pornographic deepfakes.

UK teachers want to re-educate teenage students “brainwashed” by the influencer – A. Tate

United Kingdom teachers are attempting to re-educate teenage students who have been heavily affected by the views of jailed influencer Andrew Tate. A south London school recently held a meeting with 30 14-year-olds to discuss Tate’s ideas and gauge their understanding.


The discussion eventually led to a debate about rape and whether or not women were at fault for being sexually assaulted, with some students agreeing with Tate’s views!

To illustrate the gravity of such an opinion, the male teacher asked the students how they would feel if one of their family members was a victim of rape.
