Get the Facts | V-Day: A Global Movement to End Violence Against Women and Girls Worldwide.

See on Scoop.it - projectbrainsaver

V-Day brings the issue of violence against women and girls front and center in the culture and the community. In order to understand the grave importance of this cause, one must know that violence is an issue that plagues all women and men in every part of the world. To better show the depth and scope of violence against women, V-Day has compiled a list of statistics and resources that evidence the impact that violence against women has on the individual, and the community. One of V-Day’s purposes is to amplify the work of existing groups, thus, since V-Day does not provide direct services, the resources listed here are from exceptional groups working to end violence against women locally, nationally and internationally. We hope that the knowledge that violence against women and girls is a common issue for all people will inspire you to join V-Day in our mission to end the violence and change the story of women.

Supporting Women To Solve Our Big Environmental Challenges

See on Scoop.it - projectbrainsaver

It’s a textbook case of the tragedy of the commons: farmers, municipalities, and water and electric companies around the world have freely drawn water from local rivers. Over time, residents are finding their water quantity and quality degraded because of these many unchecked demands on the watershed. Places like West […]

Mark Aldiss's insight:

"“In countries with problematic gender inequality issues, the institutionalized suppression of intellectual, experiential, and other climate-resilience-building resources that women possess amount to about 50 percent of untapped potential (i.e. half the population).”"

We are excited by the approval of our powdered alcohol product, Palcohol. However, we were caught off guard with the release of some of our labels by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). As a result, people visited this website that we thought was under the radar because we had not made a formal announcement of Palcohol. 

This site wasn’t finished and ready for public viewing. Thus, the verbiage that was copied was still in draft mode and the labels that were up were incorrect. So please disregard what is being printed as a result of information taken from the earlier version of this site. The only correct information is below.
