Welcome to Monday! ~ 15th December 2014

bless our home

Welcome! to another fine Monday morning. I’m feeling fresh and energised, mostly because I’m looking after a giant American Staffy at the moment who I have to walk every morning with two leads to ensure I have him under control. He’s really just a 30kg puppy which can be a lot of fun, until there’s a cat across the road.

Anyway, onto the link love. Hope you’re all enjoying life and excited about the festive season when I will be having exactly zero time off as I’m saving all my leave for March when my mum and I are doing something crazy and riding our ponies to Canberra from Melbourne…!!! If you’re interested in that, we have our own blog! Check it out here.

Women’s empowerment vital to stop gender based violence.

Mr Meagher was critical of “anti-feminist misconceptions” in some men’s groups. “Often in the work we do, we get a backlash, especially from men. They feel that by focusing on gender, we are denying the existence of violence against men,” he said.

“I don’t like going to men’s rights groups because I think that they are involved with perpetuating the status quo,” he said. “Men’s violence is not just one type of violence amongst many types of violence, it is a violation of global human justice.”

He said that “impunity and power can become inseparable”.
