Hola a todos!

I’m back at home again.

Hubby came to Málaga for a short vacation and

we came back home together.


Here in Helsinki evenings are brighter again – today sunset is at 8:11 pm.

And no snow!!! 🙂


We visited El Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga (CAC).

Here are a few paintings of Paco Sanguino’s collection.


I like these a lot – how about you? Do you like this type of art?

self-immolation by women in Afghanistan UNESCO

picture: Self-immolation by women in Afghanistan
1st Prize Contemporary Issues Singles

This post is not about an American television comedy-drama series.






I read an article in New York Times.

“HERAT, Afghanistan —

Even the poorest families in Afghanistan have matches and cooking fuel.

The combination usually sustains life.

But it also can be the makings of a horrifying escape:

from poverty, from forced marriages, from the abuse and

despondency that can be the fate of

Afghan women.”

the sexualization of children

Sexualization in products for children

Some commercial products seen as promoting the sexualization of children

have drawn considerable media attention:


Bratz Baby dolls that wear thongs.

Girls aged 10 and 11 wearing thongs in primary school.

Padded bras on bikinis aimed at seven-year-olds. Some people regard training bras similarly.

The Bratz brand,

which has remained number one in the UK market for 23 consecutive months focuses

core values on friendship, hair play and a ‘passion for fashion‘.

SPARK – Sexualization Protest: Action, Resistance, Knowledge

What is SPARK?

SPARK stands for Sexualization Protest: Action, Resistance, Knowledge.

SPARK is both a Summit and a Movement

designed to push back

against the increasingly sexualized images of girlhood in the media

and create room for whole girls and healthy sexuality.

SPARK will engage teen girls to be part of the solution

rather than to protect them from the problem.


What’s your opinion about the images of this video?
