March 6, at 9: My husband makes less than half what he made in LA and now we are in a beautiful huge house, paid cash, in a very nice area. In LA we rented. Living in CA is for lifestyle, not to save money.
Join the conversation on Twitter and Facebook. Closed Although a language around women's rights is largely absent from national discussions, Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, is home to a burgeoning women's movement.
The city is witnessing growing activity including the first openly declared feminist group called Setaweet. Setaweet gathering in Addis by Hasabie Kidanu.
The culture is ancient and native with its indigenous national language, music and dress traditions considered sacrosanct. Ethiopia grows at its own pace, and looks inward. In Eth 125 define race and ethnicity, Ethiopia has one of the fastest growing national economies in the world and is nested in global networks of wealth, yet the perceived influence of foreign ideas are regarded warily.
In a guarded and proud culture social change at the national scale is slow and painstaking. What do we call it?
What have we called it in the past? And how do we define, grow, and adapt it? How do we redefine the role of women with liberation, leadership and sisterhood in mind? How do we elevate consciousness within culture so committed to its customs, traditions and social structures that tends to place women on its margins?
From political participation and property ownership to healthcare access and education the social and legal lag of gender equality is evident here.
Most acts of daily violence and domestic abuse go legally unchecked and garner little public outcry. The daily catcall is as common as ever, and can easily escalate to physical violence.
How do we raise a generation of women and men who no longer internalize and normalize sexism and violence? Gathering together from all walks of life women involved with Setaweet speak candidly about their experiences in the workplace, home, city.
Here, everything is laid bare — even topics of Ethiopian culture that elsewhere are off limits. Some of the projects include AcidAttackEducationCampaign ; PagumeActivism initiated by the Yellow Movement to create a platform for sharing incidences of everyday sexism on social media; AriffAbbata collaboration between the Embassy of Sweden and Setaweet to host a photo contest to celebrate and encourage engaged fatherhood; and NothingforGranteda collaboration with the European Union Delegation to celebrate the contributions of Ethiopian women through photography.
Even though the country has integrated many Western ideals in the past — from clothing, to architecture, to films, music, and food — feminism has not received an easy welcome. Surely, feminism is not new.
We understand the banner of feminism originally responds to the challenges faced by women in the English speaking world. The role and need for it is undeniable. In four short years its following has increased while the responsibilities have broadened tremendously. Setaweet has become somewhat of a hotline for the city and community to share, unload, and call out injustices from all over the country — from sexist advertisements in pop-culture to cases of gender-based violence in universities and households.
Closed Small business owner and Ethiopian refugee Alexander Assefa will become an Assemblyman in the Nevada state legislature next year, after he defeated two primary challengers on Tuesday.
Members of the Nevada State Assembly serve two-year terms. Assefa is the only candidate who will appear on the November ballot since no Republicans or third-party candidates filed to run for the seat.
Alex was born and grew up in Ethiopia. While still a teenager, he was subject to life as a refugee in Kenya. In Nairobi, he had the opportunity to root himself in the Christian faith while he lived where refugees are not necessarily welcomed, often faced persecution and intolerance.Please help us in making this a comprehensive resource section for those directly connected or affected by this issue e.g.
