Spain's female bodyguards who protect abused women - BBC News
The story of Ana, a victim of domestic violence, and how an organisation of women bodyguards came to her help.

Edemm is a Basque organization that protects women from their abusive partners - much like India’s Gulabi Gang, or the Afghan secret service organized under Soraya Tarzi, both covered here previously.

(thanks to Francesca for sending this in!)

anonymous asked:

What do you think the Saving Francesca gang would post about if they had Instagram? Would they be themed, artsy, pictures of each other etc??

oh this is interesting to think about!

out of the girls, I feel like Siobhan would be the last one to get Instagram; she’s more of a living in the present kind of person, but after the girls kept pestering her she relented and created one. She usually posts photos of her everyday life for the girls, where she’s been and where she’s going, pictures of buildings and places (and sometimes cute guys sightings at the subway), Euro trip photos. She has an A+ aesthetic game because Siobhan is a flawless Queen of everything.

Frankie would be the type to post candid pictures and videos of her people; the gang getting together, Ned flipping T-bones at Stani’s, embarrassing photos of Luca (and tagging Anabel in all of them, much to his horror), Bob and Mia looking at each other with love over breakfast, cheek to cheek selfies with Will (who hates selfies and almost never stares straight into the camera). The best thing about Frankie’s Instagram is, of course, her music covers, sometimes featuring Luca or Tom on the guitar.

Tom’s Instagram would be basically similar to Frankie’s. I don’t see him posting much on it but when he does, he posts about his people: his women (Jacinta, Anabel, Georgie, Nanni Grace, and Tara), Anabel learning guitar (while Luca hovering in the background) (cropped, of course), Ned lying bleary-eyed on the couch in the morning during one of his sleepovers at Tom’s house, Tara’s cooking attempts, Cards Against Humanity nights with the gang + Ned & Mohsin. Tom’s a troll-commenter tho. He especially likes trolling Frankie’s missing-Will posts.

I feel like Justine’s Instagram would be the most artsy of the crew. For some unexplainable reason, in my head Justine can knit (hahah) so her Instagram would be a mix of display of her knittings, doodles of EP cover design ideas, screenshots of her currently-listening songs (she and Tom exchange new music discoveries), and sporadic pictures of Ben Cassidy. Also Justine’s room aesthetic is A+.     

I also don’t really see Tara posting much on Instagram but when she does, she makes it count. Hers would mostly be on current events happening all over the world, and she writes long, loooooong passionate captions. Tara prefers Twitter to Instagram; easier to do long threads of discussion. 

Jimmy treats Instagram like Blue’s Clues. He posts obscure pictures of the places he’s currently in for the gang to guess (this stresses Frankie out a great deal) and reveals the places later in. Once out of the blue he texted Frankie to keep an eye on his posts and started posting pictures (and exasperated the heck out of her; “This is a white wall. WHITE WALL, JIM. HOW IS THIS HELPFUL?”) until the last one revealed to be her own front door, and when Frankie ran to open it there he was after a few months away, standing on her front step with a big grin on his face. He made her cry.

Will would blatantly refuse to get Instagram no matter how hard Frankie pesters him to because ain’t nobody got time for that. He prefers to send photos to Frankie privately anyway ;)

A Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries Video! Get the Phrack on and Series 4!

My new video! Yesterday I read and reblogged the fervent wish that fanfic would be a film. Am I right, @bill0014 and @michele02132 ?? Then I thought of “Divinyls”. Great. From that on it went downhill, as I am at home with a slipped disc and lots of pain medication. I blame that. So, the song is definitely M-rated. Thanks, @izzyandlouie for letting me use your winter warmer. And thanks @ladygrayluvs @sarah-francesca @dedrajohnson @sadeline007 @sadlyoutofideas and @floydsroom for our evening (for you morning) chats on instagram! @apostrophelover there is a well timed gratin bite for you, too! Enjoy, all who like the Phrack.
