ქალები – ადამიანის უფლებებისათვის

ადამიანის უფლებათა დაცვის დღესთან დაკავშირებით თბილისის  ადამიანის უფლებათა სახლის საკონფერენციო დარბაზში გაიხსნა ფოტოგამოფენა, სახელწოდებით – „ქალები ადამიანის უფლებებისათვის“.

გამოფენაზე წარმოდგენილია 2014 წელს ადამიანის უფლებათა სახლის ფონდის მიერ ორგანიზებული ქალი უფლებადამცველების ფოტოკონკურსის მასალები. ფოტოები ასახავს სხვადასხვა ქვეყნის უფლებადამცველი  ქალის საქმიანობას. ფოტოკონკურსში გამარჯვება ხვდა წილად ქართველ ფოტოგრაფს დარო სულაკაურს. მის    ფოტოზე აღბეჭდილია თბილისის ადამიანის უფლებათა სახლის წევრი, უფლებდამცველი ლელა ცისკარიშვილი მე–8 დაწესებულების ფონზე. ქალბატონი ლელა ცისკარიშვილის აზრით ადამიანის უფლებების დაცვისათვის ბრძოლა მნიშვნელოვანია თუ გვინდა ადამიანის სულისა და ღირსების დაცვა რეალური გახდეს.

გამოფენას ესწრებოდა სახალხო დამცველი უჩა ანუაშვილი. მისი აზრით ფოტოს საშუალებით კარგად ფიქსირდება უფლებადაცვით სფეროში ქალის როლი. თვითეული ფოტო გამოხატავს ადამიანის უფლებათა პოპულარიზაციას.  მისი აზრით  ქალთა უფლებათა დაცვის საკითხებში ძირითადად ქალები არიან დაკავებულნი და რომ საჭიროა   პროექტებში ჩაერთონ მამაკაცებიც, ხოლო რაც შეეხება მას, როგორც სახალხო დამცველი იგი მომავალშიც გააგრძელებს   თბილისის ადამიანის უფლებათა სახლის წევრ ორგანიზაციებთან თანამშრომლობას და დაეხმარება მათ შესაბამისი რეკომენდაციების ჩამოყალიბებაში.

გამოფენაზე წარმოდგენილი პორტრეტები მკაფიოდ გამოხატავენ ქალის განსაკუთრებულ როლს ადგილობრივ, ეროვნულ და საერთაშორისო დონეზე ადამიანის უფლებების დაცვასა და ხელშეწყობაში, რომ ადამიანის უფლებების დაცვა საუკეთესო საშუალებაა აჩვენო საზოგადოებას, თუ რამდენად ღირსეულია ცხოვრება.

იყო ქალი და  ქალთა უფლებების დამცველი ნიშნავს აქტიურად იბრძოლო ადამიანის უფლებებისათვის და მიუხედევად გადატანილი სიძნელეებისა უკან არ უნდა დაიხიო, რომ  შეიქმნას სამართლიანი სამყარო.

Be Merry with This Year’s Holiday Theme and Wallpapers

The WordPress.com Blog

It’s hard to believe the year is already coming to a close. As 2014 ends, it’s time to celebrate the holiday season with our WordPress.com tradition of teaming up with talented artists to create a cheerful WordPress illustration. This year, Mads Berg has dreamed up a scene of togetherness to capture the spirit of the season.

Holiday theme

As in previous years, we’ve created a new seasonal theme for you based on the beautiful artwork. Automattic’s David Kennedy has adapted Mads’ illustration into a theme called Together. It is now available on WordPress.com, and will continue to be available even after the holidays.

together-theme-preview

The theme showcases the beautiful illustration in the header. Elements from the artwork are pulled in throughout the theme, like the sparkles glittering on sticky posts.

Together is the perfect theme if you want to spread a little holiday cheer. Gather with your friends and family this season, and share the moments on…

When Mary Martin Was the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up

One day early in 1954, Mary Martin and her husband, Richard Halliday, were driving on the Merritt Parkway, near their home in Norwalk, Connecticut. On the car radio came Frank Sinatra’s new hit, “Young at Heart.” It was perfect! That is, the song had the exact sentiment and feel they wanted for the pet project they’d long been planning, a musical version of J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play Peter Pan (original subtitle: “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up”). Right on the spot, they decided they’d hire whoever had written the song to compose the score for their production.

It turned out that the words were by a young New Yorker, Carolyn Leigh, and the music by the veteran West Coast jazzman Johnny Richards. The next morning the phone rang in Leigh’s apartment…

How to Fake a Medieval Fresco in Third Reich Germany

Longreads

Down in the schwahl, Malskat and the Feys set to work, attempting to reclaim history by scraping away the paint with which Olbers had tried to recapture the past. But subtracting what their predecessor had done—whether on account of Olbers’ pigments or the Feys’ incompetence—left almost none of the original paint. A nearly 700-year-old national treasure had vanished, and Ernst Fey was legally responsible for the disappearance.

Most likely Fey was the one to think of a fix. Unquestionably Malskat was the one who achieved it. Over the next several months, the erstwhile housepainter whitewashed the brick, discoloring his lime with pigment to give the walls an ancient tint. Onto this fresh surface he painted freehand his own version of the murals. Necessarily these were based on Olbers’ 19th-century restorations, reverse engineered to approximate the early medieval originals by reference to period examples in the professor’s catalogues. Drawing his figures…

I was seven and had a leather purse full of silver dollars, both of which, the purse and the coins, I considered valuable. I wanted them stored in the bank. At the time, the bank had an imposing landmark status in my map of the world, in part because it shared the same red brick as the public school, the two most substantial buildings in our town. As a Catholic school kid I did a lot of fundraising in the form of selling candy bars…

Meet the Kids Who Don’t Want Toys For Christmas

Longreads

It had been only two days since Ruth Soukup had re-organized her daughters’ room, and there were still a few toys on the floor that her kids, then three and six years old, refused to pick up. “I would say to the girls, ‘If you can’t take care of your stuff, I’m going to have to take it all away,’” Soukup recalls. It was an empty threat, until that afternoon when Soukup realized she genuinely “wanted it all gone.”

Very calmly, Soukup started taking everything except for furniture out of their room and amassing their toys into a gigantic pile.

She took away all their dress-up clothes, baby dolls, Polly Pockets and stuffed animals, all of their Barbies, building blocks and toy trains, right down to the furniture from their dollhouse and play food from their kitchen. She even took the pink Pottery Barn Kids comforter from their bed.

Her…
