Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Egyptian Sister Band Sings Out for Women’s Rights and Safety

 In Egypt, the feminist duo – ElBouma, or “The Owl” in Arabic – is singing out against abuses faced by women and girls. The sisters sing about child marriage, sexism, patriarchy, and gender-based violence, “with harmful practices such as FGM still common in remote parts of Egypt.” So far, they have received very little public criticism. I found this story in my Goodnewsletter.

A Himalayan Fungus Helps Fight Cancer

An Oxford University Study has found Cordycepin, a naturally-occurring nucleoside analogue in fungus, to be helpful in fighting cancer. The company NuCana has been using a novel technology to streamline delivery and dosage for better effectiveness. Read how science and nature work together in this article from The Good News Network.

Dads on Duty

I saw this last week at the end of nightly CBS news and knew it had to come to GNT. Watch how dads have organized to stop violence at a Louisiana high school.

Got good news?
