European Union have connected twenty-eight European countries which want to live together in peace, freedom and equality. It began after the World War II in 1950, when the six founders (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands) set up the European Coal and Steel Community. [1] Nowadays, the Union is almost a synonym for the whole Europe. Due to this role in the world many institutions were established not only to make the rules within the EU, but also to represent the Union worldwide.

Few weeks ago I watched an online reality series called Sweatshop. Three Norwegian fashion bloggers were sent to Cambodia in 2014 to try to work in a clothes factory and meet native workers, who sew our fast fashion. That project was realized by the Norway’s largest newspaper – Aftenposten. What seemed to be a different life style and a way to earn money, at the beginning, later became a nightmare for that young European. The participants were totally exhausted after couple of working hours. “What sort of life is this?” one of the Norwegian girl were asking.

Quite common sentence when Czechs talk about minorities living in their (mine, as well) country. Of course, you are not a racist, you just want everyone who do not speak the same language, do not look same or whatever to leave your country. If you are not a tourist, take your bags and go away!

  Since we have dealt with human rights in several topics, it is important to have clear what sources of law can be used, and at which time we can use them. Human Rights are meant to mitigate gender and child inequalities. Though I am not a law student, I will try to summarize the main sources of law that can be used when human rights are violated –or to avoid further violations-, which are two: Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law.

Last few months I have read a lot of quite unpleasant and critical articles and comments about my generation, the generation Y, millennials (the people born in 1980s and 1990s [1]) or in the Czech Republic also known as the “Havel’s children”, in the Czech online media (e. g. [2], [3]).

When in 2013 a cousin of mine became a father for the second time, he was one of 5.200 men in the Czech Republic who stayed at home to carry about a baby. Among women was the number 55.5 times as much (288.500 mothers) in the same year [1].

" What kind of women do I wish?, wonders a young thirty years old Chinese man. It does not matter! It is so difficult to find a woman today. I want one, that's it! " For several years already, a new phenomenon appeared in China: a women's deficit.  Indeed, there are today 34 millions more men than women in China, and only women's deficit causes in its turn a birth’s deficit.

The gender pay gap refers to the difference between the amounts of money paid to women and men, often for doing the same work, based on the average difference in gross hourly earnings of full time workers. Although, using hourly pay as a basis for calculating the gender pay gap can also mask specific differences in pay that go unrecorded, for example, bonus payments, performance-related pay or seasonal payments.

“A true democracy can not and should not exclude women. So, the question is not “why women” but “why not women.”   (Mary Teigen, 2000)

Sometimes the silence tells us more than the words. This silenced voices in a country can be the banned movies.
