  • World's Most Unequal Countries

The USA is often branded as a very unequal society. And to that point you wouldn't be incorrect, 42% of the wealth being controlled by the richest 1% certainly is unequal. However, on an international scale, the inequality of the USA pales in comparison to the likes China, India and even  Russia where 3/4 of of the share of wealth is owned by the richest 1% (my guess is probably corrupt oil tycoons) •

  • In honor of Women’s History Month kicking off in just a couple of weeks, I give you “Nasty Woman Make History.” The Nasty Women Movement spawned from women coming together to battle #injustice and #inequality personally, professionally and socially. 💅🏾 @fallintotahra 
#NastyWoman History: On October 19, 2016, during the final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton explained her hopes to improve the Social Security program by increasing taxes on the wealthy, commenting that her own Social Security contributions would accordingly go up along with those of her opponent. He immediately retorted "Such a nasty woman.” His comment sparked an immediate reaction on various social media platforms, having the biggest response from Twitter. Women, and some men, embraced his insult and turned it into a hashtag.

  • Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher was the first African American to attend University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1949. She eventually became a regent of the university that once denied her admission. Her son, Bruce Fisher, remembers: "...They brought all the white students down to the front of the class. And then at the very back of the class they put one chair with a sign over it saying, 'Colored.' When she (Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher) came into the classroom and looked around and she scanned the way the set-up was, and she saw that chair with 'Colored' in it, she realized that that was her spot. And so she had to march up the steps and sit in the colored chair. And that's where she began her law school studies. There would be times when she would walk in and the 'Colored' sign that was above her chair would be removed. What happened is, some of the students would come in and take the sign down and throw it away. And they'd have to put the sign back up again."

  • I recently came across the Economic Hardship Reporting Project on research for something I’ve been working on. To anyone looking for a reliable source to stay informed on issues of economic inequality (and you should be), I could not suggest this organization enough (link in bio). It was founded by Barbara Ehrenreich (Swipe left), Author, Activist, and a champion of the unrepresented and exploited. Ehrenreich has written over 22 books on issues relating to inequality and is somewhat of a personal hero of mine. Alissa Quart (swipe left again) is another dedicated hero of the marginalized. She’s also the Editor of EHRP. Recently she wrote a new book, Squeezed. It’s a searing page-turner on “getting by” in the United States. It’ll be an eye-opener to anyone with a generalized sense of these issues, but more importantly, it might allay any self-resentment harbored by “miss steps” truly beyond one’s control. This Organization, EHRP, was founded on the mission of providing the journalists most affected by economic hardship a chance to report on it. Because as Ehrenreich stated, “...You have to be wealthy to write about poverty? That's messed up.” And so, I wanted to share this with you all because the shrinking diversity of our information should alarm you. A new report by the Journal of Politics found that civic engagement increases and decreases directly proportional to the relationship of local reporting. After all, it’s up to each of us to make sure our institutions are held in check and demand accountability where needed. Staying informed is the first step.

  • Japanese people have been wearing surgical face masks for decades.For the majority, it’s all about protecting your own health and preventing disease transmission. Flu, cedar pollen, pollution: these are technically all ‘valid’ reasons for wearing a mask – even if studies have shown no conclusive proof that wearing one can actually stop airborne viruses.

Japan is a country that builds its foundations on social etiquette. If you’re feeling sick, you ‘do the right thing’ and wear a mask, but increasingly, people are choosing to wear masks for cosmetic reasons- they’re not wearing any makeup and want to hide their face. Think of it like wearing a hat when you can't be bothered to style your hair. Others take it one step further, wanting to hide their emotions. The honne–tatemae divide is considered by some to be of paramount importance in Japanese culture – the contrast between a person’s true feelings and desires (honne) and the behaviour and opinions one displays in public (tatemae). By wearing a mask, these emotions can remain hidden.

  • Jealousy

Jealousy was the title of the dance routine.
Really, so much of the media landscape - especially advertising and television - paint a wholly artificial picture of the real world. In the phony dimension we're bombarded with, there's no old age or disease and everyone lives in a utopian, smiling, abundant world. This unrealistic construct creates a culture of envy and jealousy. We aspire to be like the celebrities whose apparently perfect lives are depicted on popular media and of course, that's a phantasmagoria. When our own deeply flawed lives are compared to the artificial world presented to us it inevitably results in a crisis of cognitive dissonance and a sense of failure. The only solution is to be pragmatic and aloof. That takes knowledge and experience. We learn these skills with age. Unfortunately age is the enemy of the media culture perpetuating all this illusion. We are culturally antithetical to the aging process, which is creating a vicious cycle of ignorance and foolishness. Social media platforms like instagram can be used to communicate valuable information but are equally at the forefront of the trend to a superficial and highly dysfunctional cultural paradigm based on a reality that simply doesn't exist.

  • Never apologise for your 'Gift'. I spent too many years being apologetic and modest about who I am, and what I am capable of. When I was a young, trainee teacher, my mentor told me not to be so- as he put it- 'self-depracating'. My uni tutor told me: "You're a very impressive person, Sarah-Jane, for a number of reasons." He never elaborated. In the first school I worked in, the Headteacher invited me into her office to discuss my contract. She looked me dead in the eye, and told me; "You've got a talent that can't be taught...you can't teach what you've got." Deep down , I knew she was right. That's why I got the contract; I'd been given a class that had been labelled 'unteachable', on account of their behaviour. They weren't unteachable. I taught them, and I did it well. I taught ages 5-11. Those children will be adult now. 💜 I was overlooked for promotion time and time again by the same Head. I diligently continued, trusting that my time would come and I'd be handsomely rewarded by her....but it didn't. Oh, how naive I was 😊. Years later (literally), when I asked her why, she told me that I needed to 'prove myself'. Countless 'Outstanding' Ofsted ratings, unbelievable behaviour transformations, upwards of 11 teachers observing my lessons at the same time, learning the craft from me, training existing, more-experienced staff...unofficial show-pony or what?? 😂 But yet, I still needed  to 'prove myself'. I saw teachers who I'd been instrumental in training promoted to senior leadership before I was...in the same academy... can't think why 🤔...I guess I just needed to 'prove myself'. I do wish them well, though. 💜An office 'insider' at the school told me, in confidence, that I was the highest-performing teacher statistically for more than a year at the time...she saw the injustice and she wanted better for me. I took the info on-board but I was too timid to fight my corner more strongly, so I said nothing. I couldn't betray her confidence. The  arrival of a new Headteacher changed everything for me; he saw the injustice too. If you're reading this, you know who you are...respect. Thankyou...I sincerely hope we meet again 💜 *Continued in comments* ⬇️⬇️

  • The wild and stormy sea.. matches how I feel. Out for a walk with bubs and dog and looking at all the lovely families frolicking on the beach (as much as you can frolic while wearing a duvet in Ireland's winter). Himself is out for a cycle with a new group this morn for five hours. So darn frustrating. I adore looking after my little one but would like to spend time as a family unit also. Not possible during week but sunday morning? Yes possible unless you decide to do something else. To be fair he does at times but often cycling or work or other things are deemed more important and it is frustrating We both work.. not me right now as am on leave and i know people say to leave him to mind her more often but i would not dream of leaving her so often. I just couldn't. I don't want to shirk my duties which are a joy other than the sleep and worry thing!! Would just like a little bit more company while I do them.. i know other people feel the same and i know others who are blessed with a partner that is more there.. i guess nothing is perfect... #feelingblue #honest #parenting #inequality
