The rise of nationalism and religious fundamentalism is a threat to human rights worldwide, activists warn. In an effort to curb hateful politics, the “Secular Week of Human Rights” launched this week in Berlin.
The hard work by so many before us to improve gender equality sits on a precipice. We are still nowhere near being able to tell our daughters that they can grow up confident in enjoying everything their male counterparts have with absolute equality, and safely for that matter. Violence against women, harassment, slut-shaming, pay disparity, the under-representation of women in politics, professional sport and management are just the tip of the iceberg. What I have learnt is that we need to throw our support behind those who speak out and find themselves at the back end of a social media dump truck. We have a very long way to go before we enjoy a world without discrimination on a daily basis. That path is not one to tread quietly.

The US president had been scheduled to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence at the Aisne-Marne American cemetery and memorial at Belleau, about 60 miles (100km) north-east of Paris. The White House cited rain that grounded the president’s helicopter for the cancellation.

Satellite images of ballistic missile base are a further sign that US diplomacy has not led to significant disarmament
North Korea is maintaining more than a dozen missile launch sites, according to new research, in a further sign that the summit diplomacy pursued by Kim Jong-un has not led to any significant disarmament.
Donald Trump and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, have portrayed the US president’s June summit with Kim in Singapore as an unprecedented breakthrough, and pointed to the partial dismantling of a nuclear test site and a missile engine test area as side of progress towards North Korean disarmament.
