How young people can help to end child labor

(CNN)I’ve been told it takes a village to raise a child, but in my 24 years as a children’s rights activist, I’ve learned the opposite is true too. “Battled child labor, boy, 12, murdered.” I was stunned. I was sitting at a breakfast table in small town, Ontario, Canada, with enough food to eat, a soccer coach and a comfortable life. Meanwhile, another boy my age had been gunned down in Pakistan for speaking out about the factory owners who bought him for $16 to settle a family debt. How could two lives be so different? I started calling anti-child labor organizations, asking how I could help. They told me a kid couldn’t make any difference, so I decided to …

Our editor-at-large on the six US elections hes covered so far, the upheaval in world politics and why many Republicans like him How did you get into journalism?

Zaghari-Ratcliffe to get diplomatic protection

Iran refuses to recognise dual nationals so does not recognise Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s right to be represented by Britain. Diplomatic protection is a rare legal procedure in international law.

It is very different to diplomatic immunity, which is something given to diplomats to ensure their safe passage and protection from prosecution. What is diplomatic protection? What is the Zaghari-Ratcliffe case about? Iran ‘tried to get jailed mum to spy on UK’ According to the BBC’s diplomatic correspondent James Landale, her new legal status will not force Iran to change the way it …

Feminism with no human warmth leaves me cold | Zoe Williams

Im a fan of the acclaimed young writer known as the Slumflower. But her sexual creed of exploitation appals me, says Guardian columnist Zoe Williams A couple of years ago, the feminist society of Deptford Green secondary school convened a conference. It was there that I met Chidera Eggerue: aka the Slumflower, author of #saggyboobsmatter movement. She was a remarkable woman. I dont want to call her a remarkable young woman, even though she was 23 at the time: young is such a modifier and she would have been remarkable at any age. Her broad message was one of body positivity: if you love yourself and your shape, nobody can shame you. She built what I thought was a brisk, …

Study On 657,461 Children Finds No Link Between Vaccines And Autism

The largest study so far into vaccines and autism has concluded there is no link, even in children who have a higher risk of developing the disorder. In fact, the researchers found that unvaccinated children were more likely to go on to be diagnosed with autism than those who received vaccines. The myth that vaccines cause autism has been debunked many, many times.  In 1998 Andrew Wakefield published a study based on 12 children that linked the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine to autism. The results have not been replicated, and it later transpired that he had falsified data, for which his medical license was revoked. Another study in 2017 linked aluminum in vaccines to autism. This study was withdrawn after …
