Meet Monumental Women, the Group Behind Central Park’s First Statue of a Woman
For close to 20 years after a supercyclone ravaged Odisha, a group of women along the coast has been standing sentinel over their beloved storm-shielding forest and mangrove cover. Deftly swinging and beating their sturdy bamboo sticks, 75 women in Gundalba village in the famed temple district of Puri in the Mahanadi delta have been taking turns to literally blow the whistle on potential timber smugglers and tree cutters in this sandy strip of the coastal woodland.
Anyone with an intent to harm the local biodiversity flees on hearing our whistle and the banging of our sticks on tree trunks. Biswal is the secretary of the Pir Jahania Van Surakhya Samiti , nurtured by women who came together voluntarily in response to the devastation after the Odisha supercyclone battered the northern Indian Ocean. In , the group won the maiden UNDP India Biodiversity Award in the community stewardship category for their efforts to rejuvenate the natural heritage of their village.
The calming sound of waves gently lapping the shore near the Pir Jahania shrine and the gorgeous sunflower fields belie the destruction unleashed by the cyclone on October 29, The soil had turned saline. There was no food for days and our children had no clothes to put on. But we realised that it was because of the surviving forest, including the mangrove species, that we were still alive.
We pledged that we will protect the forest in return and restore the biodiversity. Narrating the story of the inception of their squad, Biswal said 70 women came together in to form the women forest protection committee with representations from every household to revive and manage the biodiversity of the hectare forest area.
The village, close to the Devi river mouth, now has households. It is the women who make up the protection and monitoring squad to look after these resources. After our lunch and ensuring the house is in order, we again leave for the late-afternoon vigil. The forest is an extension of our home.
This is how a mother feels and for us, the trees are our legacy and we are doing something that comes to us naturally. The vigilantes use mobile phones these days to alert one another. The members of the committee formulated and passed resolutions for a set of regulations for the management of the forest, including practices that help them avoid conflicts with neighbouring villages who depend on the same patch of forest for their stock of firewood.
Neighbouring villages gather firewood on a fixed, different day, usually after three or four days after the villagers of Gundalba have collected. At the outset, the women invested time and energy in generating awareness on the importance of the forest cover, said Behera, elaborating on the role of the mangrove forest as a bio-shield.
They essentially pose as wind-breakers. In the supercyclone, around 30, casuarina trees were uprooted. Mangroves were inundated, the women said. A concerted effort of the local communities, spearheaded by the Samiti, led to the regeneration of mangrove vegetation Avicennia officinalis, Avicennia alba, Aegiceras corniculatum, Ceriops decandra, Acanthus illicifolius, Bruguiera gymnorrhiza, and Excoecaria agallocha in the river system.
Birds started nesting and we heard bird calls once again. Biswal and Rahima Bibi underscore that the recovering forest has made their village more liveable. This is because the mangroves and other tree species prevent intrusion of saltwater. According to a study that analysed years — of tropical cyclone frequency in the north Indian Ocean, approximately four times as many tropical cyclones occur in the Bay of Bengal compared to the Arabian Sea.
Cyclones occur most often in May, October and November, with an average of five to six tropical cyclones every year. In the years studied, the frequency of tropical cyclones in the Bay of Bengal during November has doubled. Odisha has been struck by recorded tropical cyclones in the past years to Included in these strikes was the supercyclone of October 28 to 30, , which killed approximately 10, people and had a 7.
Cyclonic flooding in the Bay of Bengal is associated with storm surges, high tides and high water levels due to the heavy rainfall. A study by the School of Oceanographic Studies at Jadavpur University highlights in coastal Odisha districts, the risk of severe cyclones ranks above heavy floods.

His vision for the group is to ensure that the voices and experiences of women living with HIV are well reflected in health policies and programmes, so that the respect for human rights and gender equality remain the grounding principles for the HIV and broader health agendas. The group comprises a diverse set of members representing women living with HIV from around the world. On 29—31 October , the advisory group will convene its first face-to-face meeting at WHO headquarters. On the agenda are key issues affecting women living with HIV, as well as policies and approaches related to sexual and reproductive health and rights SRHR , HIV and broader health issues. Membership of the advisory group was developed following an open call for interest, and builds on past collaboration between women living with HIV and different WHO departments. The members must be able to advise WHO and share a range of perspectives on key issues, including sexual orientation and gender identities; women who use drugs; women who engage in sex work; women from a broad age range including young women and women born with HIV; and women who have experienced multiple forms of discrimination, including in health care settings.

By Currie Engel on February 5, From the great-great-granddaughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton to the first female firefighter in New York, the board of directors is a veritable history lesson in activism. The three women gather around a small table, long dresses trailing the floor, hair pulled back from their faces. One holds a pen, the others lean towards her.

Севильский собор, подобно всем великим соборам Европы, в основании имеет форму креста. Святилище и алтарь расположены над центром и смотрят вниз, на главный алтарь. Деревянные скамьи заполняют вертикальную ось, растянувшись на сто с лишним метров, отделяющих алтарь от основания креста. Слева и справа от алтаря в поперечном нефе расположены исповедальни, священные надгробия и дополнительные места для прихожан. Беккер оказался в центре длинной скамьи в задней части собора. Над головой, в головокружительном пустом пространстве, на потрепанной веревке раскачивалась серебряная курильница размером с холодильник, описывая громадную дугу и источая едва уловимый аромат. Колокола Гиральды по-прежнему звонили, заставляя содрогаться каменные своды. Беккер перевел взгляд на позолоченную стену под потолком.
Он преобразовывал послания таким образом, чтобы текст выглядел бессмыслицей. Что, разумеется, было не. Каждое послание состояло из числа букв, равного полному квадрату, - шестнадцати, двадцати пяти, ста - в зависимости оттого, какой объем информации нужно было передать. Цезарь тайно объяснил офицерам, что по получении этого якобы случайного набора букв они должны записать текст таким образом, чтобы он составил квадрат. Тогда, при чтении сверху вниз, перед глазами магически возникало тайное послание.

Стратмор кивнул: - Думал. Но решил этого не делать. Сьюзан так и подумала. Старшие должностные лица АНБ имели право разбираться со своими кризисными ситуациями, не уведомляя об этом исполнительную власть страны.

Терпкий аромат красного вина ударил в ноздри Беккера, когда падре Херрера опустил перед ним серебряную, отполированную миллионами рук чашу. Немного рано для алкогольных напитков, подумал Беккер, наклоняясь. Когда серебряный кубок оказался на уровне его глаз, возникло какое-то движение, и в полированной поверхности смутно отразилась приближающаяся фигура.
Мы обязаны утроить самое высокое сделанное ему предложение. Мы можем восстановить его репутацию. Мы должны пойти на. - Слишком поздно, - сказал Стратмор.

Сьюзан тихо вскрикнула: по-видимому, отключение электричества стерло электронный код. Она опять оказалась в ловушке. Внезапно сзади ее обхватили и крепко сжали чьи-то руки. Их прикосновение было знакомым, но вызывало отвращение. Б нем не чувствовалось грубой силы Грега Хейла, скорее - жестокость отчаяния, внутренняя бездушная решительность.
