I'm Jean Hannah Edelstein, a writer, editor and author. This used to be my personal blog, but now I just use it for amusing and interesting internet ephemera. Head to www.jeanhannahedelstein.com for the full-strength version of what I'm thinking and writing.
We went to see this last night, and I thought, ‘this may be the worst film I’ve ever seen, it’s like when my brother and I used to put on plays using the living room drapes as theatre curtains except with a high budget!’ But because it was in German I also thought, ‘maybe this is a wonderful film, an important and incisive satire, and I just don’t get it because I only understand 50% of the dialogue!’
But then afterwards the Germans who I was with confirmed that it was Scheisse and I felt much better.
In celebration of International Women’s Day 2013, singers and musicians around the world united to create ‘One Woman’, a rallying cry inspiring listeners to join the drive for women’s rights and gender equality.
This year, International Women’s day focuses on ending violence against women – a human rights violation that affects up to 7 in 10 women.
