Read the September 2020 Issue of eShe Magazine

Yemeni human-rights activist Radhya Almutawakel is on eShe's cover this month, and inside are women working to help India's textile weavers, craftspersons, and community libraries. Awareness comes with responsibility. Know them, support them!

The latest issue of eShe is here and it gets bigger and better! You can read it online on Issuu or Magzter, or download it to your device:

EDITOR’S NOTE: BE AWARE

Awareness comes with responsibility. If we are ignorant of, say, a gas leak in our kitchen, we are at potential risk of accident. But unless someone actually goes into the kitchen and lights a match, we won’t find out about it, and we may even assume we are living safely.

However, if we do know there’s a gas leak and we still don’t take action, we’re putting many lives in danger. It’s an act of wilful negligence.

And if we know there’s a gas leak but we still go ahead and light a match, it’s a deliberate attempt at destruction. We can’t blame it on ‘an act of god’.

In this age of instant relay of news and knowledge across boundaries, it’s increasingly impossible to be completely ignorant about the gas leaks in societies, countries, economies and politics. Very few can claim to be living in caves for too long a period. The remotest villages in India now have cellphone connections even if they may not have toilets.

So the question is: even if you are a good person and aren’t lighting matches to kill anyone, are you wilfully ignoring the gas leaks around you because it’s too much of a bother to speak up? Are you a silent spectator of hatred, hunger, injustice?

This issue is full of women standing up for humans and human rights. If you can’t be like them, know them, support them.
