Reviews by May Abu Jaber

May Abu Jaber

Passion and dedication are important qualities for anyone entering and aiming to be successful in protecting and preserving international human rights. This genuine desire led May Abu Jaber to pursue a Bachelor’s degree with honors in Human Rights and Women’s Studies, with a minor in History from Carleton University in Ottawa. She is now undertaking her Master’s degree from the University of Oxford in Women’s Studies.

May has volunteered and worked for various organizations that focus on the empowerment of the disenfranchised. These organizations include the Elizabeth Fry Society, Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism, and the Carleton Human Rights Society.

As for her personal interests, she enjoys writing, reading, and adding new languages to the ones she already knows (Arabic, English, Spanish, and French). Her commitment to the amelioration of international human and women’s rights is clear, and remains a constant goal.

Talk To Your Body

Brian Emmert and Nathaniel Kane are Das Black Milk’s two songwriters and they’ve done an excellent job on their latest album Talk to Your Body; it’s probably their best work yet. Many of the songs focus on notions of domestic turmoil in a paranoid dystopia, which I think reflects the current time we’re living in.

Quest for Honor

Should the fate of our lives be put in the hands of another human being merely because we are women? The right to feel secure in one’s own body is a basic and fundamental human right that should be employed by all human beings, despite their race, sex, gender, religion, age, and class. Unfortunately, many individuals run the risk of being physically, sexually, emotionally, and psychologically abused merely for being women.
