No Woman Should Be Missed Out

When I started running the Women’s Project at Asylum Aid eight years ago, I was surprised to find out how women are treated in the asylum system. Previously I had worked at Victim Support and I knew there had been lots of progress made in how the police and Crown Prosecution Service worked with women who reported rape or domestic violence. There were even new laws to support them.

My Body is Not Public Property

When the word abuse is tossed around, most people immediately think of physical acts like slapping and hitting or verbal attacks such as yelling or threats.

Second Week in London, First Week at Tender

Hello! I am Ruby, the brand new intern here at Tender. It is hard to believe that only two weeks ago I was getting on a plane to leave my hometown, Minneapolis, Minnesota, with nothing but a huge backpack and a purse stuffed with maps, books and travel guides. I am taking a gap year after completing two years at Oberlin College in order to travel and work overseas. Since I arrived I have stayed a week in a hostel, found a flat and moved in, explored quite a bit of the city, and I have spent four days starting my internship here. It is incredible when I think about how much I have already done and learned.

I came to London to intern at Tender. I graduated from Nebraska and was interested in working in the human rights field. I wanted to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to work successfully in this field on an international level. Tender seem like a good place to start given their impressive history of where they started and where they are now.

Anna Dodridge - Standing Up

This post is the first in a series on 'Standing Up' written by Tender's brilliant guest bloggers!
This week I've found myself defending feminism again, this time on a social networking page of a well known American church leader! I've questioned the point in making the same arguments again to people who are really not interested in listening. But I decided that if something is worth standing up for then I should stand up for it even when it can feel futile.
