At the beginning of 2008, Fidel Castro announced his resignation as President of Cuba and his brother, Raúl Castro, was declared the new President. In his inauguration speech, Raúl promised that some of the restrictions on freedom in Cuba would be removed ensuring more rights to Cubans. These years are very contradictory and conflicting for the people of Cuba who are trying to fit new form of economic and social life. This process of “renovation” is still running and expediting which creates new and different social and economic issues for the population.
The Srebrenica genocide perpetrated against male Muslim civilians was the worst war crime committed in Europe since the Second World War. On July 11, 1995, Serbian troops based in the mountains surrounding Srebrenica entered the town. All boys and men aged 14 to 65 were separated from the women, children and elders, deported and massacred. Of the over 8,000 victims of the massacre, only a few thousand families have been able to bury their loved ones.

The Indian misogyny tradition has its roots in the hindu culture.
The reference for indian women is Sita, the heroine of the epic poem ‘Ramayana’ where she is the example of submission to male authority.
Low female condition and sexual repression are still strong in the indian society: no public love expressions between men and women, no hugs, no kisses. Women must cover the body, especially legs and curves either at home or in public.
Women are forced to be daughter, wife, mother and grandmother without any social or economic role.
