In this short piece, however, I would like to take a unique approach by shedding light about how important is Prophet Muhammad to me as an individual with disabilities and to other Muslims with disabilities around the world.
At every point in history women have always struggled for recognition, rights and equality. This year is no different. The journey for women in the UK, and globally, is far from over. Our incomes and ownership of resources still lag behind men's. Our representation when important decisions are being made - whether in parliaments, boardrooms, or negotiating tables - is paltry. The demands on our time, particularly from unpaid work and care, are overwhelming. And one in three of us will experience violent assault in our lifetime. But I firmly believe the tables are turning.
Arts charity IdeasTap has announced it's being forced to close due to lack of funding. The organisation's disappearance will leave a gaping hole in the UK's support network for young artists. Doing anything at all - paid or unpaid - in the creative industries is hard enough.
Like many disabled people, I just want access to the same places and products as everyone else, and I hope disabled people feel as encouraged as I do that this report may be the best way in which we can start to access them. So if you are reading this as a disabled person, the next time you feel discriminated against, my advice is to do a Julia Roberts...
The Enos became our link to the music world. They set about bringing in tens of thousands of pounds with three fundraisers, "Little Pieces from Big Stars", "Pagan Fun Wear" and "Milestones".
The reasons behind the female statistical excess in the depression statistics are probably very complex and not reducible to mere hormone imbalances.
Within Christianity, theologians have looked at the same collections of passages and come to different and sometimes opposite conclusions about what they mean.
Tens of thousands of social workers throughout the UK devote their lives to helping children out of desperate and abusive situations. To get to the root of what could help more families, we asked these professionals about the pressures they face.
We have a tradition in Britain of caring for people all around the world and the response to Jimmy's story shows British compassion at its best. All we need now is Theresa May to join the public and do another random act of kindness: let Jimmy stay.
e had the chance to question EC3 about the match and he remains confident. Fans will need to watch to see whether that confidence is justified or whether Spud will end Carter's unbeaten streak and shave him bald...
So far, my biggest challenge has been the traditional approach of society to women. I believe that many women do not realize their dreams simply because our society cannot accept that women earn more than man and women can be active in the public sphere.
Perhaps I may be accused of citing anecdotes to make a generalised conclusion; of course all Indian men must not be tarred with the same brush. However expecting women to be subservient & treating them as objects, is very much entrenched in our glorious Indian culture.
When a sick or disabled person commits suicide, the rules change. There is an unspoken assumption they had a valid reason to do so with people remarking they are probably better off now.
Far from keeping us secure, events like this only strengthen the UK's ties to brutal dictatorships and entrench the government's role as a global arms seller. Furthermore, they undermine the UK's political credibility on human rights and strengthen the position of repressive regimes.
Oxfam is in Liberia and Sierra Leone for the long haul. We're continuing to work with communities to build understanding of Ebola treatment and how to stay healthy, providing financial support to help families get back on their feet, and helping them guard against infectious diseases by equipping schools and clinics with clean water and sanitation.
More recently, the new inspection regime introduced by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) - the regulator for health and adult social care in England - is helping provide a better understanding of quality in hospice care.
