Documentary: Knock Down the House

Unfortunately, in 2022, women are still underrepresented in politics worldwide. Of course the numbers differ strongly per country, but when I look at my own country I am still very disappointed. In the House of Representatives in the Netherlands (‘de Tweede Kamer’), we currently have 57 women. That’s 38%, because there are 150 seats. Therefore, we need hope. That’s why today I am sharing the documentary: Knock Down the House.

Je Geld of Je Leven

Now that I have a full-time job, I have more money than I ever had in my life. I am so privileged that I have a stable income. In this phase of life, most people use that money to buy expensive things for themselves, a car, a house, phones, etc. Most people adapt their lifestyle to their salary. Today I want to tell you about a book that may inspire you to make different choices than most people. Today I want to tell you about the book Je Geld of Je Leven, written by Hanneke van Veen and Rob van Eeden.

Finding Vegan Restaurants: HappyCow

Past Monday I came back from my holiday. I traveled to Budapest with my partner and two friends (the coming weeks I’ll tell you more about the traveling itself). Today I want to talk about another sustainability aspect while on the road: vegan food. I personally find the Netherlands a walhalla for vegan food (but we can do much better) and I know where to look for vegan food. But in other countries this can be tricky. Luckily there’s an amazing website/app for finding vegan restaurants: HappyCow.

Documentary: 13th

I have always been fascinated by incarceration. Locking people up in small areas, sometimes for their entire life. Why? How? This fascination even led me to do my internship in a Dutch prison back in 2017. I then saw everything from up front. I don’t know if I still would choose the same internship now in 2022, because my views have changed. But the fascination about incarceration has stayed. This led me to watch a documentary which shines light on mass incarceration in relation to racism in the United States. Today I am sharing this documentary with you: 13th.

Documentary: Crip Camp

Last week was the first time I wrote about a certain type of discrimination: ableism. I wrote that post to introduce the subject to you, because I feel that everybody should know what ableism is. From there on, we can learn more about it. That’s why I am sharing a documentary concerning ableism with you today. Today I am sharing more about the documentary Crip Camp.

Today I am telling you more about the series: POSE.

Destroying CO2 with Carbon Killer

I hear a lot of people around me complaining about the role of industry in this climate crisis. Why should we individuals change when industry just keeps on polluting? Earlier I wrote a post on why we shouldn’t think like that and that we all have a role in this crisis. But even if you disagree and think industry should change and not us individuals, I have something exciting to share. Today I am telling you about: destroying CO2 with Carbon Killing.

Beperkt Houdbaar by Sunny Bergman

This weekend I had an interesting chat with housemates. We discussed plastic surgery. So many different opinions were out there and I love that. Looking at the different perspectives I felt like there was an underlying subject to this discussion: the appearances of women. It remembered me of a documentary I have seen which discusses this matter from different perspectives. I hadn’t shared it here yet. That changes today, since I’m sharing ‘Beperkt Houdbaar’ by Sunny Bergman with you.
