Providing free college tuition in California is a good idea — but taxing millionaires to do it is a bad one 23.3.2017 LA Times: Commentary

Feminists Need to Focus on Child Care 21.3.2017 Truthout - All Articles
The recent Women's marches throughout the United States and the world were energizing and empowering.  My impression of the march in Washington, DC was that women involved in this huge display of solidarity wanted to send the message to the Trump administration that we will not be silenced and we do not want to go back to a time when overt discrimination against women was acceptable. Women expressed concern about the misogyny of Trump and others in his administration as well as fear that women's reproductive health choices will be further restricted.  This march was an empowering experience for many women but, as noted by the organizers, is just the beginning of some long battles ahead.  It is no surprise that women's reproductive rights were a center piece of the march.  Trump's threat to reproductive rights is real and profound. It is already clear that he will make appointments to the federal bench that will be heavily influenced by the religious right. However, to move forward this movement must ...

What Every Country Can Do to Make Schools Safe 20.3.2017 Truthout.com
On an autumn afternoon in 1993, following heavy artillery fire, my older sister Edina gave me a backpack and rushed me through deserted streets to a local school in Visoko, a town 30 kilometers outside of Sarajevo, the Bosnian capital, where we lived with our mom as internally displaced people. The shelling had further battered the already damaged school, making it possible for us to sneak in through what looked -- to a 9-year-old me -- like an exciting tunnel made of rubble. Inside, an eerie silence filled the corridors and the empty classrooms. Holding each other's hands, we walked through the debris until we found our way to what once was a library, where books had neatly lined white shelves a year before, and now hundreds of books were scattered on the floor. I watched as Edina got to her knees and started to collect some books and put them in her backpack. I bent down and started to do the same. Half an hour later we left the school with two backpacks full of stolen books. Our local school was ...
Palestinian women try to bring baseball to Gaza 20.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Khan Younis, Gaza Strip • The young Palestinian women don baseball caps on top of their Islamic headscarves and field tennis balls with fabric gloves, giving a decidedly local feel to the great American pastime. They are trying to bring baseball to the Gaza Strip, an effort that is still in its early innings. The players, who work out on a small soccer pitch in a southern Gaza town, admit they are still trying to understand the rules of the complicated sport. With pitches lobbed underhand, the g...
