Rwandan genocide

Almost 25 years ago, at least 800,000 Rwandans were killed in a planned campaign of extermination. In this excerpt in The Walrus, survivors of the genocide who settled in Canada share their powerful, heartbreaking recollections with Christine Magill, who says their stories taught her “about the resiliency of the human spirit, and...demonstrate why we must counter divisiveness in all its guises.”

Wall of women

In India, millions of women decided to kick 2019 off with an unprecedented display of solidarity, building a “gender wall” in support of women’s right that stretched out over 600 kilometres. And they weren’t alone — as Kamala Thiagarajan reports for NPR, “even as women of all ages lined up on one side of the highway, many of their menfolk — husbands, friends and relatives — lined up on the other side to show their support.”
