印度英勇修女击退恶霸拯救儿童

两名警察访问阿尼穆蒂尔修女,感谢她服务被遗弃的儿童。

当身穿纱丽的修女,坐在火车站月台的地上教导被遗弃的儿童时,几个男人过去说要给予帮助。嘉勒.阿尼穆蒂尔(Clara Animuttil)修女很快便从他们的动作和用语,意识到他们以为她是性工作者。

为本地性工作者讨公道

何思慧在Project X看到性工作者所面对的各种问题,积极协助她们争取权益。

娼妓业是古老行业,来到21世纪,干净文明的各大城市转角处,依然有人寻花问柳。夜幕下,本地的芽笼、小印度、豪杰大厦等可见寻芳客身影。

卖淫当娼一直是个见不得光的工作,不仅社会地位低微,且为世人唾弃。长久以来,性工作者选择吞下耻辱。

本地年轻女大学生当按摩女郎、陪游女郎,各有苦衷与追求。老练性工作者看尽世态炎凉,对人性失去信心。可喜的是,社会上还是有人愿意伸出援手,为她们发声,在一次次不公事件中为她们争取权益。许多看似理所当然的工作权益,性工作者即使铆足全力争取也可能徒然。

The Billionaire-turned-conservationist

Douglas Tompkins made a fortune selling high-end jackets and adventure gear as the founder of North Face. After foundingThe North Face as a small ski and backpacking gear shop in San Francisco in the 1960s, Mr Tompkins helped his then wife start Esprit, a clothing brand. Both companies would grow into multinational clothing giants.

But in the late 1980s, he left the business world for South America in order to pursue environmentalism, co-founding the Foundation for Deep Ecology in 1990. He moved to the wilds of Chile and Argentina, espousing an anti-consumerist philosophy, buying huge swaths of land and making enemies along the way.

The Unlikely Friendship with “Information Please”

© Alena Paivina

Paul Villard’s story An Old Telephone is unbelievably warm and sincere. It reminds us once more that what really matters in this world is not prestige, popularity, or wealth, but for our hearts to be warmed by kindness and love.

When I was quite young, my family had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember well the polished oak case fastened to the wall on the lower stair landing. The shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I even remembered the number: 105.
