The book itself consists of several poems and prose that describe one’s wish to love and let go at the same time. Each work reflects the human nature of romance, for it is filled of not only joy, but also hurt from expectations. Some of the works bring up religious themes, because it is found that religion is the closest thing that can be related to love; devotion, the wishing of a miracle, how God embraces His worshipers the way lovers embrace one another.

The book is divided into two parts: Heaven and Earth. Heaven section represents collection of literary works with various divine references, telling tales based on perspectives of metaphysics. Earth section has a lighter and grounded approach, in which it seeks love through breath of life and living.

For the Sake of Indonesia’s Women, We Need to Pass the Sexual Violence Bill

The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action calls upon Governments to enact and enforce legislation to punish perpetrators of violence against women, and to protect and help survivors recover. If Indonesia passes the Elimination of Sexual Violence Bill, the country can take a big step forward in meeting its commitments to the Beijing agreement. The House of Representatives failed to pass the Bill during its most recent session, but the House and the Government have given priority to its passage this year.

It covers sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, forced contraception, forced abortion, rape, forced marriage, forced prostitution, sexual slavery, sexual torture, sexual violence committed by children, crimes committed by corporate entities, and other crimes related to sexual violence.

Pose and Its Depiction of ‘Chosen Family’

When Blanca Evangelista began singing her rendition of The Wiz’s Home during her serenading session at a hospital, she opened the song with lyrics that said, “When I think of home, I think of a place, where love’s overflowing.”. Instantly, my face is drenched with tears, that part orchestrated my body to produce endless series of goosebumps. Whenever I think about home, I draw my thoughts to the word ‘family’. What is a family? People usually refer the term to a group of two, three, four, even more, all connected by blood. Definition of family that we have been holding very dearly through our veins. I initially believed that family could only be made because of the genetic relations between parties, or created under legal signatures and statements. Family is not just a relation between parents and children, even relationships between relatives are still considered as family.

How Jane Sloane from the Bold Type Helped Me Validate My Strength and Vulnerability

For ‘independent stellar woman’ trope, the word ‘vulnerability’ is rarely mentioned in her vocabulary. In the society glorifying the means of strength, sometimes it is easy to brush aside fragility, which leads to the thinking that strong women cannot be vulnerable at the same time. They are praised for being tenacious that even the slightest hint of sadness or breakdown might send hellfire at them. I used to think that in order to be a strong woman, you were not allowed to show any signs of emotion other than happiness and a proud sense of achievement. Such mindset consumed me that I tried so hard to let so little amount of people into my life. I used to overshare about how I felt, but in the end, it turned back to me like a dagger piercing on my chest. I tried so hard to be emotionless, not showing any signs that I had problems inside myself. Turns out, the problem was me all along. I had been bottling up my emotions because I did not let myself break down the walls around me for my close friends to see. I suffered on my own, because my perception of being an independent woman was having her own stuff together all the time, eliminating the fact that there would be time when I would be drained and was no longer able to hold it anymore.
