Petition to Seoul Metropolitan Government, Ministry of Employment and Labor, Minimum Wage Commission
Support Equal Wages for South Korea
South Korea's focal points of gender economic disparity presents as follows, Worst wage gap among OECD nations 2% of corporate directors is taken up by women 93% of Koreans surveyed in 2010 believe women should have equal rights to men, and among them, 71% believe more changes are needed before that goal is achieved. According to UNDP Gender Inequality Index, Korea ranked 10th, higher than any Western European or North American country except the Netherlands Wage Gap disparity of 36.3% (marked as "Worst out of all industrialized nations by OECD" South Korea, holding a robust economy in Asia and on a global scale, is renown for its rapid rate of its exponential economic growth with strong commitments to production of goods, investment in human capital, and globalization. It's positive influence towards the global economy has garnered quite the light on South Korea's momentum and dynamic system of efficiency. Fortunately, those who run the economy, both women and men, are highly praised for their "hard work" (even mentioned on The Economist). Yet 57% of the female population actively participate in the workforce, discounting the discouraged workers. (check out further at: https://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DataSetCode=LFS_SEXAGE_I_R ). Meaning, more than half of the females take part in the economic, political, and social contribution to the domestic status quo, yet still meets disparity in their ends and wages albeit the fact that their equates to that of what a male does in the exact same job. These women in corporate businesses do not receive the same wage as the guy next to her doing same thing. It’s this discrimination, lack of representation of women in workforce, and cultural beliefs that lowers the image and not prompt any idea of equality to the male counterpart. The misogyny is South Korea is heavily understated as the cultural norm constricts the society from expanding beyond historical and cultural point of views. Women made up 86 percent of all violent crime victims in 2013, according to police data (most violent crime is sexual in nature, and women suffer disproportionately from sexual crimes). Women aren’t safe at home, either: Reports of violence against women perpetrated by their husbands have been rising in recent years. (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/13/opinion/south-koreas-misogyny.html) Women fare just as poorly in how they’re depicted. South Korean movies often show images of unimaginable cruelty toward the female body. It’s no wonder then that the World Economic Forum ranks the country 115th out of 145 countries in gender equality. Women earn only two-thirds of what men earn, according to the Ministry of Employment and Labor. Women made up 2.3 percent of corporate executives at 348 of the largest 500 companies in South Korea in 2015 (others were exempt from reporting). South Korean men hold the record for doing the least amount of housework among the men in the world’s most developed countries — an average of just 45 minutes per day, or one-fifth of the time a South Korean woman spends. When over half of the woman populace is working whilst under the roof to feed her family, does it now sound to one the reality and burden of work a typical woman faces? Yet she returns to work every morning, doing the exact work as the man next to her, and is viewed less than others. It simply does not makes sense. Discrimination needs to end now, as hate is not a perspective. It never was one and never will be This is truly a matter of privilege in a society where the belief that a man should take a more prominent role in the workforce. Mainstream media and society most often exclusively sheds light on the corporations and politics that are 99% infiltrated by men. Meaning, we do not see the rest of the working force that continually runs the economy. "The statistical increase in the quantity of employed women has not correlated with the equality of wage, as the gender wage gap reported in 2013 was 36.3%, the worst of all OECD nations present in the data." I highlight, "the worst." (cited from the actual OECD website, gender wage gap tab bar). The Economist (2013) has published its fifth annual “glass-ceiling index”. (https://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2017/03/daily-chart-0) It combines data on higher education, workforce participation, pay, child-care costs, maternity and paternity rights, business-school applications and representation in senior jobs into a single measure of where women have the best—and worst—chances of equal treatment in the workplace. Each country’s score is a weighted average of its performance on ten indicators. South Korea ranks the lowest of all OECD countries as it has the large wage gap and women make up only around 15% of government, underrepresented in management positions and on company boards. In South Korea, just 2% of corporate directors are female. Similarly, fewer women than men have completed tertiary education and are part of the labour force. It is time to break down the useless glass ceiling and the discrimination on women. As a key player and influencer in the OECD nations, we hope to see South Korea's initiative will have a ripple effect towards local nations as well, as this discriminatory action is a widespread phenomenon in Asia in general. We, the progressive drivers of our society and the undersigned, call on the Seoul Metropolitan Government to equate the wages among women and men. There is no logical, rational, moral, nor biological reasoning that proves, justifies, and defends a higher payment for a human having a biological attachment to his body other than ego and greed that drives such desire. Wage is given on work, experience, effort, and position of the individual, without any affiliation to his or her differences that unjustly place them in an invisible position in our society. Over half of working populace of South Korean economy are the females, yet it is not just nor right in any way to give them a lower payment, as they work equally for the economy.

never re-offended in adult life prior to childhood petty crimes not be disclosed on a DBS
I am a 27 year old mother of two young children, after the birth of my second child I chose my dream career, I didn't get the best start in life, I made some mistakes when I was a child. I truly believe something needs to change with regards to the laws/legislations/rights for people whom have never re-offended in adult life prior to childhood petty crimes, to not be disclosed on an enhanced DBS, I am embarrassed and upset that I now have to go through all this again 13 years Down the line of being a law abiding citizen. I am trying to change a cycle from my troubled childhood to better the life of my children.There are people in this country for example the James Bulger murderers that have committed an horrendous crime and get given anonymity and a second chance. how is this fair? For their safety? What about my life!? what about my future? I deeply regret the things I have done in the past and would like To be granted another chance and to request the possibility of exemption of my childhood convictions. The PNC is not a true reflection of myself. I will be conversing with my local MP's for something within parliament to change for people trying to better their life's so they don't face the same barriers I have faced myself.

Petition to Idaho State Senate, Idaho Department of Corrections, Jay Christensen(Warden), Idaho State House, C.L. "Butch" Otter, Donald J. Trump
Re-instate Idaho State Correctional Center Close Custody Visits
After 6 weeks of uncertainty and no visits this was announced on 11/19/2018 Announcement By Warden Jay Christensen, ISCC In light of recent incidents in the Idaho State Correctional Center visiting room, we have evaluated all visitation options for close custody offenders. With the Holidays approaching we believe it is best to restore some form of visitation while ensuring the safety of all visitors, staff and offenders alike. ISCC plans to begin offering video visitation during the week of 11/19/2018 for close custody.The visitation times will be coordinated between G-blk staff and Visiting staff to align with the current G-blk dayroom schedules.Those offenders wishing to receive a video visit will communicate their visiting request with unit staff by use of a concern form and once it has been confirmed they will inform their visitors of the time frames to match their dayroom schedule. This is not only a punishment to the inmates but also to us civilians, we are innocent as it is but we will have to suffer even more than what we have too. I am majorly concerned for the sake of our children, who will not have physical contact with their parent for who knows how long! It eventually take its toll on a lot of inmates. It also raises the questions, how is this fair?! What incentives do they have for good behavior? How are they rewarding good behavior? And what are the emotional effects of this?! I am wanting to get as many signatures as possible to present to The Warden on my next visit. I am from the UK and have to travel 5000 miles to visit my husband, our visits are rare as it is and we treasure them dearly, as do so many others. But now we will be restricted to a screen, my stepson who is very young needs the physical contact with his daddy to build a relationship. we all need that physical touch to know that we're still human! PLEASE SIGN! 'Visitation is so important to maintaining a prisoner’s faith. So important. I can’t believe they would simply take that away, the impact is going to be so real.' (Sister Alison McCrary is an attorney and executive director for the National Police Accountability Project) 'We should be moving toward more human contact and people connecting with other people, not less. When we move away from this we are de-humanizing even more!' (Norris Henderson spent nearly 28 years in prison for murder in Louisiana) Please sign this petition to stop this becoming a permanent change to our lives! I will post daily statistics and facts about visitations. Also I will update as regularly as possible! ! !
Petition to UK Government
Allow justice for all victims of rape!
The current UK law (seen below) means only a man can be convicted of rape , and only when he uses his penis. The UK legal definition of rape should change to the US version which provides more equality and provides the chance for more people to be convicted for the serious crimes they commit. It is more up-to-date and the UK definition is outdated and narrow. Just like how the US updated their law in 2012 the UK should fellow suit. Penetration from an object can cause the same trauma as when penetrated by a penis, yet these victims attackers can get off more lightly. Sign this petition and help victims get the justice they deserve. UK DEFINITION https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2003/42/part/1/crossheading/rape "Rape(1)A person (A) commits an offence if— (a)he intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person (B) with his penis, (b)B does not consent to the penetration, and (c)A does not reasonably believe that B consents. (2)Whether a belief is reasonable is to be determined having regard to all the circumstances, including any steps A has taken to ascertain whether B consents. (3)Sections 75 and 76 apply to an offence under this section. (4)A person guilty of an offence under this section is liable, on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for life." US DEFINITION https://www.justice.gov/archives/opa/blog/updated-definition-rape “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” "For the first time ever, the new definition includes any gender of victim and perpetrator, not just women being raped by men. It also recognizes that rape with an object can be as traumatic as penile/vaginal rape. This definition also includes instances in which the victim is unable to give consent because of temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity. Furthermore, because many rapes are facilitated by drugs or alcohol, the new definition recognizes that a victim can be incapacitated and thus unable to consent because of ingestion of drugs or alcohol. Similarly, a victim may be legally incapable of consent because of age. The ability of the victim to give consent must be determined in accordance with individual state statutes. Physical resistance is not required on the part of the victim to demonstrate lack of consent. "

Stop attacking kids rights! Repeal the 27th Amendment
The 27th Amendment “Notwithstanding any other provision of this Constitution, a person born in the island of Ireland, which includes its islands and seas, who does not have, at the time of the birth of that person, at least one parent who is an Irish citizen or entitled to be an Irish citizen is not entitled to Irish citizenship or nationality, unless provided for by law.” This is an assault on the rights of children born in Ireland. We need to repeal the 27th and reinstate the right to citizenship for children born in Ireland. To allow them the full rights of any Irish person, to truly "cherish the children of Ireland equally." It is a xenophobic, populist Amendment which played on peoples fears of the outside world, it needs to go. We have a vision of a better Ireland, one where our children play together and have the full protections of our country behind them.

american gun laws in UK
i think the right for UK citizens to defend there home with guns, just like the united states is needed,the police in the UK cannot be relied upon in certain situations of course there will have to be checks made on people to see if they are not criminals or mentally unstable,so we can have self defence like America in a safe controlled way. the UK government has stripped all rights away from law abiding citizens,we was able to own handguns up until 1997 and the law has not been relaxed so as it currently stands in the UK we are not allowed to defend our own homes and if we do we end up going to prison, while none law abiding citizens can walk around with whatever weapon they want which just proves that banning weapons does not work!,as a British person myself i want my rights back and i want the ability to protect my home without fear of being prosecuted or arrested just because i was defending my property.
