With so much attention on the young girls flocking to join ISIS from the UK and elsewhere, surely a message like Jiya's that empowers girls and stands up to extremism should be spread.
Until we desist from ignoring and negating male victims/survivors from discussions of sexual abuse, rape and sexual exploitation, we will continue to keep boys and men silent and take it from me... silence is a potential killer.
I've travelled all over India, and will continue to do so, taking the same precautions I always have. But do other women feel differently? To find out, I asked a group of professional women who either live in India, or travel there often, how they feel about their safety in India...
I have a dream. It involves climate negotiators. They are bleary-eyed, exhausted, but happy. Nestled inside some grey building in the heart of Paris, they are weeping with relief at the result of all-night negotiations that leave climate campaigners like me elated, and the carbon-fuel lobbyists staring into the abyss, desolated.
Last year when the Manchester dog's home went up in flames I was watching the television and my first thought was how proud I felt that the UK was such a generous nation of animal lovers. However this was swiftly followed by my second, which was, how can we possibly justify raising of £2million for animals when there are children like my eight-year-old son, Harrison, dying every day from fatal illnesses. Harrison has Duchenne, a disease that means he probably won't live to see his 20th birthday. In 2011 I founded Harrison's Fund to raise money to fund research to develop a cure.
If we want to build a safer and more prosperous world, there needs to be a rapid, massive and sustained increase in the number of people who have access to justice.
It was a chance to protest, to meet like-minded people and to learn about the issues, but most of all it was a chance to celebrate that if you love and care about wildlife you are in good company here in the UK.
It was late last year when I heard about Operation Health for Comic Relief. Putting aside the obvious question "How on Earth did they get my number?" I was immediately paralysed by the size and the timescales of the project. Renovating a dilapidated health centre in rural Uganda in just nine weeks sounded ambitious, but I was immediately sold and knew I had to be a part of it.
When I receive a call that someone has had a terminal diagnosis, or the organist has flu, or what am I going to do about dog fouling in the churchyard - I am, again, reminded that life is not just about facts and figures - it's about experiences, hopes, and concerns.
That people's outcomes in life shouldn't be determined by their income, gender, age, race, ethnicity, disability or geography is a truly transformative notion that could shift the course of global development - for good. But it's also a tall order.
30 years into the HIV and AIDS epidemic, discrimination continues to be one of the most devastating consequences of an HIV diagnosis, and stands in the way of an effective response.
The idea that Africa has been alienated from telling its own stories by the west remains prevalent in the minds of many, yet we often derail ourselves when we control the narrative.
I'm urging organizations, cities, industries, governments and other key players that are taking the lead on tackling climate change to nominate their game-changing activities to be recognized by the UN Climate Change secretariat's Momentum for Change initiative, and to be part of this historic paradigm shift.
Silence. That's how most of us have been programmed to deal with sexual assault. As children we are sheltered from its existence. The first introduction to abuse is when it happens to you, or to someone you know.
I argue against the use of this word simply because it has been over used, particularly where disabled people are concerned. It is deployed whenever someone with a disability achieves something that is perceived to have been a challenge, whether it was or not.
We switched off our head torches and allowed our eyes to adjust. This was the Arctic region of the mountain, a barren, lifeless area covered in ice and rock. At this altitude the oxygen is half that of sea level. And we would feel the effect of that greater tonight than any other night.
