We’re very happy to have been able to create a crowdfunding project for Patience Faith Link to help her raise funds to purchase a headstone to mark her brother’s grave. Sadly, Patience was not permitted to use the headstone she had made, as it does not conform to the regulation requirements for the Mt Gravatt Cemetery. If you can, please get behind the project, and help Patience free her brother’s spirit. Check it out here.
Happy International Women’s Day. At ResearchCrowd, we are committed to accelerating gender equality and women’s empowerment. Much of the research we conduct is aimed at improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls. While women make enormous contributions to everyday life and the economy, they remain disproportionately affected by poverty, discrimination and exploitation because of barriers to education and employment, and status in society – this is exacerbated for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. As UN Women Executive Director, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, says, “This must be a period that will enable the 21st century to be regarded as the century that empowered women and empowered humanity”.
