Having a hard time nurturing any kind of sympathy for the reckless intoxicated driver, representing a menace for not only themselves but for all the others that happen to be in the vicinity of their moving vehicle, is justifiable. Order a taxi, ask a friend to drive you instead, hand over the keys to the car if you know that after a certain point you would be inclined to become less responsible when drinking. Being aware of your personally-tailored limits in regard to your alcohol tolerance truly is where the lifesaving happens. You might not legally be drunk enough according to any tests that will sneak you past the police, you might not sense that your motor skills and vision have started to slow down when you get behind the wheel, yet as time passes the fact is that alcohol will increasingly affect both your judgement and your physical body.

Closed Although a language around women's rights is largely absent from national discussions, Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, is home to a burgeoning women's movement. The city is witnessing growing activity including the first openly declared feminist group called Setaweet.
Setaweet gathering in Addis by Hasabie Kidanu. The culture is ancient and native with its indigenous national language, music and dress traditions considered sacrosanct. Ethiopia grows at its own pace, and looks inward.
InEthiopia has one of the fastest growing national economies in the world and is nested in global networks of wealth, yet the perceived influence of foreign ideas are regarded warily.
In a guarded and proud culture social change at the national scale is slow and painstaking. What do we call it? What have we called it in the past? And how do we define, grow, and adapt it? How do we redefine the role of women with liberation, leadership and sisterhood in mind? How do we elevate consciousness within culture so committed to its customs, traditions and social structures that tends to place women on its margins?
From political participation and property ownership to healthcare access and education the social and legal lag of gender equality is evident here. Most acts of daily violence and domestic abuse go legally unchecked and garner little public outcry.
The daily catcall is as common as ever, and can easily escalate to physical violence. How do we raise a generation of women and men who no longer internalize and normalize sexism and violence? Gathering together from all walks of life women involved with Setaweet speak candidly about their experiences in the workplace, home, city.
Here, everything is laid bare — even topics of Ethiopian culture that elsewhere are off limits. Some of the projects include AcidAttackEducationCampaign ; PagumeActivism initiated by the Yellow Movement to create a platform for sharing incidences of everyday sexism on social media; AriffAbbata collaboration between the Embassy of Sweden and Setaweet to host a photo contest to celebrate and encourage engaged fatherhood; and NothingforGranteda collaboration with the European Union Delegation to celebrate the contributions of Ethiopian women through photography.
Even though the country has integrated many Western ideals in the past — from clothing, to architecture, to films, music, and food — feminism has not received an easy welcome. Surely, feminism is not new. We understand the banner of feminism originally responds to the challenges faced by women in the English speaking world.
The role and need for it is undeniable. In four short years its following has increased while the responsibilities have broadened tremendously.We take pride in developing students into alumni who go on to become ethical business leaders, engaging artists, and respected scholars.
