But sometimes forgotten are the social consequences the physical destruction leaves in its wake.

An Open Letter to Silicon Valley Parents - Kareeda Kabir - Medium

Dear Silicon Valley Parents, There's an overwhelming amount of opportunities to take advantage of in the Silicon Valley. I doubt there's a part of the world that's somewhat developed that hasn't heard of Apple or Facebook or any of the other tech giants in our backyard, or that wouldn't want to have half of the opportunities we do.

Being a South Asian Feminist

I proudly identify as a Bengali American feminist. My parents, who were born and raised in Bangladesh before they came to the U.S. at a rather young age, support my identity. They believe that I can choose who I want to marry, that my education is infinitely more important than anything else, and that my future will hold more than cooking, cleaning, and caring for children.

A Forgotten Genocide: Bangladesh, 1971

In between March 25, 1971 and December 16, 1971-almost 9 months-approximately three million Bangladeshis were killed, 200,000 Bangladeshi women were raped, and millions of Bangladeshis were forced to flee.

Scare Yourself Into Caring About Climate Change

TW: The book mentioned in this post includes extremely graphic sexual violence and two graphic (consensual) chapters of sex. In the article below, I'll be mentioning sexual violence, but not in detail. If you are anything like me before I read this book, then you probably believe climate change is real, and that people who deny it are doing the earth a disservice.
