Feminismo, por la actriz Natasha McElhone

Párrafo del extracto de una conferencia sobre la manipulación de la mujer, dada por la actriz Nathasha McElhone:

     «I don’t understand the lack of innovation in these areas. If I were a journalist, I would ask every man I interviewed if he was worried about his hair loss, his weight, how he managed his work/home balance, what his neuroses were – and skip over the content of what he actually did. And I would by contrast ask all my female interviewees about their aspirations, their favourite music, the biggest influences and inspirations in their lives. I would – yes, I know I would be fired – but I would neglect to mention her physical appearance. Just until the tide turned a bit».

Para fans de «Homeland» y de Brody

Entrevista con Damian Lewis:

For five months of the year, Damian Lewis lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, where his hit TV series Homeland is filmed and where, after taking a break between seasons, he goes through the same acclimatisation routine. «The first week you think: I may never go home, this is amazing. The second week, you think: right, now I can get over my jet lag, this is really good fun. And then, after the second week, it’s a disaster. I have kids and a wife; you spend a lot of the time quite homesick.»

La verdad sobre los «benefactores» de Qatar

Trabajo de esclavos:

Dozens of Nepalese migrant labourers have died in Qatar in recent weeks and thousands more are enduring appalling labour abuses, a Guardian investigation has found, raising serious questions about Qatar’s preparations to host the 2022 World Cup.

This summer, Nepalese workers died at a rate of almost one a day in Qatar, many of them young men who had sudden heart attacks. The investigation found evidence to suggest that thousands of Nepalese, who make up the single largest group of labourers in Qatar, face exploitation and abuses that amount to modern-day slavery, as defined by the International Labour Organisation, during a building binge paving the way for 2022.
