On the one hand, this study is from 2012 and the figures may have ever so slightly changed. The reason I cite it as opposed to newer sources, is that they only list totally numbers in mining etc, not numbers by profession. Ie, Newer sources state that mining in Queensland is 15.1% Female. But they go to great lengths to avoid the fact that most of those women are in clerical/administration roles, and that women only make up around 2%-5% of the actual shitty hard labour jobs. https://web.archive.org/web/20120325153610/http://www.communities.qld.gov.au/resources/women/resources/about/qld-women-at-a-glance.pdf

She has a degree in Environmental Science as well a Trade Certificate in carpentry and joinery, and a Builder's registration.

How to put the power of law in people's hands | Vivek Maru
 
19:44
What can you do when the wheels of justice don't turn fast enough? Or when they don't turn at all? Vivek Maru is working to transform the relationship between people and law, turning law from an abstraction or threat into something that everyone can understand, use and shape. Instead of relying solely on lawyers, Maru started a global network of community paralegals, or barefoot lawyers, who serve in their own communities and break the law down into simple terms to help people find solutions. Learn more about how this innovative approach to using the law is helping socially excluded people claim their rights. "A little bit of legal empowerment can go a long way," Maru says.

"Saving Our Land." Peoples Power against the Mining Company with Money Power. Trailer m4v
 
05:46
Clive Porabou's Trailer for his new Documentary "Saving Our Land", on the struggle of the indigenous population of Mekamui/Bougainville against the re-opening of Panguna mine by Rio Tinto's subsidy Bougainville Copper Limited. Panguna mine brought many problems to Mekamui and the war and military blockade which followed its closure in 1989 had cost the lives of 20 000 people, which was a fifth of the population. None of the indigenous people living on the Land and from the Land want the mine re-opened. They have opposed the principles of large-scale- mining already in the 60's and just want to live in peace and harmony without the intrusion of international companies ripping them of their resources and destroying and polluting their island.

After my husband was murdered | Dionne Wilson | TEDxSanQuentin
 
12:02
In 2005, Dionne Wilson’s police officer husband was killed in the line of duty. She wanted his killer found and sentenced to death. Speaking from the stage at San Quentin State Prison where her husband's killer sits on Death Row, listen to Dionne's story. As the Survivor Outreach Coordinator for Californians for Safety & Justice, Dionne Wilson speaks with crime survivors all across California. Through the Insight Prison Project, Dionne also meets with men and women convicted of violent crimes and has found that restorative justice practices are far more effective at stopping crime than vengeance has ever been. Through this work, Dionne has discovered a newfound passion for life and love of people that didn’t seem possible after her own husband was murdered. She now advocates for services that break the cycle of violence: trauma recovery for victims, drug treatment, mental health services, education, and job training. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

The secret US prisons you've never heard of before | Will Potter
 
14:56
Investigative journalist Will Potter is the only reporter who has been inside a Communications Management Unit, or CMU, within a US prison. These units were opened secretly, and radically alter how prisoners are treated — even preventing them from hugging their children. Potter, a TED Fellow, shows us who is imprisoned here, and how the government is trying to keep them hidden. "The message was clear," he says. "Don’t talk about this place."

Is the world getting better or worse? A look at the numbers | Steven Pinker
 
18:33
Was 2017 really the "worst year ever," as some would have us believe? In his analysis of recent data on homicide, war, poverty, pollution and more, psychologist Steven Pinker finds that we're doing better now in every one of them when compared with 30 years ago. But progress isn't inevitable, and it doesn't mean everything gets better for everyone all the time, Pinker says. Instead, progress is problem-solving, and we should look at things like climate change and nuclear war as problems to be solved, not apocalypses in waiting. "We will never have a perfect world, and it would be dangerous to seek one," he says. "But there's no limit to the betterments we can attain if we continue to apply knowledge to enhance human flourishing."
