50 million people in the world today have been forcefully displaced from their home — a level not seen since WWII. Right now, more than 3 million Syrian refugees are seeking shelter in neighboring countries. In Lebanon, half of these refugees are children; only 20% are in school. Melissa Fleming of the UN’s refugee agency calls on all of us to make sure that refugee camps are healing places where people can develop the skills they’ll need to rebuild their hometowns.
Watch this. And reblog it. PLEASE.

"There I am," said Dumbledore brightly, pointing ahead of them to a tall figure crossing the road in front of a horse-drawn milk cart.
This younger Albus Dumbledore’s long hair and beard were auburn. Having reached their side of the street, he strode off along the pavement, drawing many curious glances due to the flamboyantly cut suit of plum velvet that he was wearing.
"Nice suit, sir," said Harry, before he could stop himself, but Dumbledore merely chuckled…
Somebody needs to start pairing the stuff I post with Harry Potter quotes RIGHT THE FUCK NOW.
A hydra is a snake right? So basically Nick fury is trying to get hydra off the helicarrier right? Does that mean he’s trying to get those motherfucking snakes off his motherfucking plane?

I feel vulnerable and prone to danger when I am walking around at night, even in my quiet, uneventful suburban neighborhood. Although I tell myself to not be so paranoid and that it is in my head, I cannot help feeling uneasy and unsafe. I hear my mom’s voice telling me that I should not walk home from work alone. I hear the teachers at my old college, informing students of attacks on young women making their way to their cars. I remember the violent attacks on women in my friend’s neighborhood that made her sleep out for weeks. I want to walk around at night without fearing for my safety or having scenarios of sexual assault and violence run through my head. I want to feel comfortable where I live, in the body I am in. Standing naked in the middle of a line of garages, as vulnerable as I could be, was both scary and exhilarating. It forced me to breathe in my fears for ten still seconds and recognize how consuming thoughts of rape culture and my vulnerability are, though they usually sit somewhere right below the surface, always there, always nagging, always reminding me of what can happen if I am not careful enough, not smart enough, not lucky enough.
Breaking news: women earn less than men. We already knew that, but this latest survey among young people who have recently graduated in Italy gives us a bit of official data to shed our unemployed tears upon.
The third Rapporto Bachelor reported by Repubblica interviewed a thousand Italians who have graduated from university about four years ago and analyzed the disparity of their income based on gender. Though, statistically, there are more women in Italian universities than men, the majority of those women (34,9%) follows paths related to literary subjects. Men, on the other hand, usually (as in, about 40% of those interviewed) choose scientific subjects. Women also regret their choices more often, as they feel their degrees are useless in the market. I wonder if their perception reflects the reality or if the fact the market ignores them is also related to their being women.
As for the data on the image above, it displays the percentage of men and women who earn the same monthly pay. As you can see, most women earn less than €1000/€1250, while most men earn more than that. 42% of graduated men earns about €1250 to €1750, while only 28% of graduated women are lucky enough to reach the same status. The higher the pay, the wider the disparity. The same can be said for contracts. Half of the men interviewed had a full-time contract with no time limit, versus 27% of women, who mostly had part-time contracts and, for 80% of them, not for choice. Let’s also keep in mind how being pregnant often results in being fired rather than getting a maternity leave.
Of all the people interviewed about the level of satisfaction with their contracts, 70% of men had a positive opinion while only about 50% of women could say the same.
Read more: here’s the full 2013 OECD report on Education that includes lots of data on Italy (just CTRL+F the country name) and here’s an article in Italian that sums up the information from that pdf.
The graph would be more interesting if compared to Employment charts over the years, Demographics, Job opportunities and necessities in Italy.
Unemployment is an awful plague and our precarious contracts are cruel jokes. Retirement laws affect the job market as well, just as much as heavy bureaucracy and criminality do. You also can’t really gain datas from the Black Market. Post-graduate women are generally in their mid-/late-20s and may wish to start a family: Nobody is ever hiring a woman who wants to get pregnant, though. It’s yet dreadful to realise even more people struggle to attain financial stability. Employment conditions are yet terrible for everyone these days and the highest ranking professions are in male-dominated areas : Finance, Politics, Engineering. It’s the “equal pay for equal work” the problem, not only the unnecessary gendering imposed on professions and study areas.
Emigration rates would also be interesting to show: how many women are leaving to country for better job opportunities? Women are better-educated and generally get higher grades, wouldn’t they wish for a job in better-paying countries or in foreign institutions?
