to listen to his people his challenge will now be to find some middle ground on al-jazeera. the united nations says human rights must be on the agenda at the summit between president trump and the north korean leader kim jong il and the un's envoy tomas or can diana was speaking in geneva ahead of the june twelfth summit he said too many north koreans don't have adequate access to food with ten million people relying on aid and while he welcomed north korea's release of three u.s. citizens last month he said hundreds more prisoners should be freed as a gesture of good well i'm not the opinion that human rights dialogue. undermined the opening and the talks on the denuclearization at all i don't think that he said dilemma. on the contrary i think that from the in the p.r. korea side to show
11:09 pm
a willingness to open to to open up to the human rights mechanisms we'll give them could it really be in their intentions to engage with different stakeholders in their intention to denuclearize price. and it will play in their favor definitely one hour from our correspondent wayne hay in south korea. the comments by the special repertoire were clearly an attempt to try to keep the issue of human rights in the mix as the world very much focuses on that summit between donald trump and kim jong un in singapore next week it's not known if donald trump will raise the issue of human rights when he meets with kim jong un but the special wrapper to a things that has to be part of the equation particularly when it comes to discussions around economic sanctions against north korea because he believes that sanctions have a direct impact on the humanitarian situation in north korea but there are others
11:10 pm
who say look you cannot raise this issue directly with kim jong un in this first summit because it is too sensitive for the north koreans and if donald trump does go ahead and talk too much about human rights in singapore then it raises the risk of derailing the entire process of improving relationships between the two koreas and between north korea and the united states american government officials are saying that they have been raising the issue of human rights constantly in their meetings with the north korean counterparts in the lead up to that summit next week . national disaster agency says it's suspending rescue efforts in the areas seventy two. options heavy rain and have made it dangerous for rescue workers to continue their operation at least ninety nine people died after sunday's eruption as david meserve reports from the desire. trapped in

11:15 pm
that the human rights commission in northern ireland didn't actually have the jurisdiction to bring the case in the first place but that said it was very interesting to see that the supreme court judges felt the issues so compelling and so important that they decided to look at them anyway despite the fact that the commission didn't have jurisdiction and the majority of those judges decided even though it's not legally binding they decided that the human rights law is not compatible with northern ireland abortion is particularly in relation to fatal fetal syndrome unborn children have a syndrome it's simply not possible for them to survive. but those people who are campaigning for women's rights so that they will now launch a petition in belfast for a formal declaration of long compatibility not withstanding what happened here at the supreme court so this this issue is not going away any time soon. now in a surprise move burned is president has announced that he'll step down in twenty

11:20 pm
the president that allows us to be blunt and frank and we have been throughout our exchanges with the president from the very beginning i can certainly speak personally to say that i have consistently stood up for canadian interests consistently demonstrated where we disagree but done so in a polite and cordial context and i think that's what canadians have always expected of me and that's exactly what we're going to do. somalia's national disaster agency says it's suspending rescue efforts seventy two hours after a volcanic eruption killed almost one hundred people heavy rain and ash will have made it dangerous for rescue workers to continue their operation goldens new prime minister says he's closer to withdrawing a contentious touch change that sparked days of protests the demonstrations forced the previous prime minister to step down. the strain is next the

world is watching with anticipation the first ever meeting of a sitting u.s. president and the leader of north korea is set for june the twelfth in singapore will this bring the breakthrough to reduce a global nuclear threat find out on al-jazeera. i am for me ok and the philippines president of the regarded thursday says he believes in the competence and capability of women not in all aspects of life we look at how filipino women are influencing society and whether present to tony's behavior is sexist or simply take it out of context you are now live in the stream and on al-jazeera you tube so leave your comments in the chart. and christine. your industry.
11:22 pm
presently dream go to target a strong governing style and crude sense of humor has often drawn fire from human rights advocates and feminists but on sunday he drew fresh criticism when he asked a married woman to kiss him on the lips during a rally in seoul south korea the woman says there was no malice in the act presidential spokesman how iraq contends it was a playful act in line with filipino culture which some filipinos might agree with. for me that was ok as long as the woman was ok with it it seems like she was the one who even requested it people were just putting malice to it but it was just a simple yes. they turned to his critics of the move is yet another example of what they say is rampant massaging the president's cavalier commentary on sexual assault and a recent announcement about the philippines next on bud's men would certainly not
11:23 pm
be a woman has his detractors saying and nothing is enough online many filipino women have begun using the hash tag go or i am a woman to highlight what they call it is macho fascism take a listen to what the secretary general of women's group gabriela said about the kiss you don't have to kiss the woman if you want to infringe the people in the fact that you kissing the woman. says something about how you view him in women are forty thirty min. that you can express or eggs or say you or you over another person especially a woman is that that's something really you see the president does has a on tuesday said he would resign from office of all offended women signed a petition demanding it here now to help us unpack the controversy. is a journalist and also one of the organizers of the. go campaign she joins us from
11:24 pm
manila also miller we also have antonio can tell us he's a professor of political science university adding kamber oh hello there antonio encumber australia. is a sociologist as well as a senior research fellow at the university of canberra hello there nicole everybody good to have you here good morning good morning to you low key way you are and hello to everybody else who's watching ok let me show you something on my laptop tony one of the things that you study is every day politics when we look at this situation here is the president of the philippines kissing somebody brought up from the audience what what does that tell you about everyday politics in the philippines. well. when people say that we saw ginny's already normalized then i would agree with that to some extent because for me to start your reality. many people blame to president for being an agent that
11:25 pm
you saw it in you but they see different yeah i see him as an output of the outcome of that and so us other men is not the only man who's doing got it doesn't make it right but at the same time in order to fight you saw genie you have to look at more structure to do that it is a product of a worldview it's a product of the way people think and it's not just men who are complicit to so that it's also the women who sort of allow it but women who taught them to be like that and maybe in this situation the women who allowed themselves to because just so much in the way everybody risk in the massage in this culture and have done well ma'am i'm not so i'm not saying who said to be on the side me ellen it's yeah but but you know he doesn't understand and i. yes he's the president but if you're going to see you in on the president you're missing the point the point is in order to hold you know you don't want to you do what. you see in the moment i'm more strategic here we're going to fight because we all want to sing we don't want and
11:26 pm
so we just. argue about how to do it to get under way some people i'm just curious because it was a second what you said was i'm such an almost if there was no debate in the present the philippines is i'm a such an ist and he's sexist i'm just want to check i'm just seeing one of the gassy there's anyone having to contend that he's not sexist. people who know there's any debate of people who think that there are people who think you know not even i don't want to. you know i don't agree you but i'm saying that. i limit my accounts or other men who are probably never the mortons you know the way i see it when you're dealing with some sort of you're also demonizing others and i was not a bad person but he's a missile genius many so i want to i want to bring in you know as an adult i hear where you're coming from antonio but i want to bring in a couple of comments from twitter this is he says our government is led by
11:27 pm
a president who displays behavior in public that is disrespectful of women his mouthpieces spin this by saying it's part of our culture even if it isn't children see this on t.v. and the dignity of women in this country is being damaged by this administration and before i pass this over to you i want to read one more is john who says i'm in the philippines and i don't agree with the president's spokesman who said this is part of our culture it is never a light moment or acceptable for a sitting president to just kiss someone else's wife or anyone for that matter on the lips for mere entertainment elected official should always act responsibly and i'm wondering your thoughts on this ok the president's top. to no he's it's. avonlea still loves women and he's. very progressive laws. but he has been by early in the same law which states very clearly that you do not abuse women or believe and that you treat women with respect and this is
11:28 pm
a president who has continuously abused the need and insulted women and whenever somebody gets his gold up he's first reaction is just to abuse and not just any abuse but abuse that actually centers on woman. because let me bring you into the conversation here let me show you something though first of all nicole recent compilations thirty examples are to test a sexist remarks in solidarity with rabbi arco here's a compilation of president at a sexist remarks deter taken to try off women in ten of his speeches and one more here from fragrant filipinas to shooting vaginas the taste toxic sexist remarks want to impact does this have on the environment between men and women in the philippines if anything at all when the president is obviously viewing women in
11:29 pm
a certain kind of way. i think one of the curiosities here is at least for some observers is that considering how up and save the statements have been there has been a massive outrage against a president on the level of people coming out in the streets to madrid what happened in the united states and i think one explanation for that is because what the president is doing is it's familiar it's not necessarily accept double but it's familiar what he's doing is correct a mistake of the sketch comedy i watched growing up in the eighty's it's correct to rest of the noontime show in the philippines that you see until to day it's something that people know is slightly unacceptable but it's also something that a lot of the workers way against the president are correct there is sticks i think that is what i observed with a steady disappoint there is over the past two years one of the things they always hear from my respondents whether these are in some communities in the or disaster affected communities in central philippines is that people understand that this is a lot president this is an imperfect person and yet this person is not one
11:30 pm
dimensional this is the same person who brought home distressed filipino workers from the middle east this is the same person who is august seaman a disaster happens this is not to say that his sexism is acceptable but with i'm arguing here is that based on my observations people weighed the kinds of values the corrector respects that the president presents and i think that's an important insight because there's a tendency to portray the president's supporters as thinking as dubai this charismatic leader but that's not necessarily the case i think there's a lot of there's a lot of scope for debating the values of the people have and i guess the headline is a millionaire but not necessarily acceptable and what they are is that because i want to bring in one another as a point a lot of his and i want to bring in one of her supporters here on twitter this is lynn she says and then mayor deterred say was the main driving force for why the city's gender po'd came into fruition which other provinces patterned their own agenda or codes and where our own country's gender code was patterned after he got
11:31 pm
important things done for women than those so-called decent politicians have and i what do you make of what she saying. what she's saying is exactly what i was saying that there might have there might be a progressive code endeavor city but this is a chief executive who thinks is above that code and above that law and while maybe some of them might be waiting on he's decisive there's we have we what he what he treats how he treats women like the truth is that a lot of the turkey supporters have come out and saying we can't have that either because like this is the way he treats our mothers our wives our sisters i joe grant you know that's just not an acceptable and it also actually keeps a toxic. atmosphere between men and women and while those shows are indeed some real year i think enough women have also been speaking out
11:32 pm
against a kind of durable violinist that they do spread in themselves and his personal want to be my response above. i was a little and a case of. just a very quick comment that yes of course then me i did hear it was responsible for the east going and says that protect women but let's not forget that this is a product of civil society groups who are lobbied by women themselves and i think it's just not fair to say that it's the president the only person that instituted these laws and our it's a product of law struggle of women's movement in the city the media and a sexual harassment laws i mean double possible and i think that's the case nationally now with the president to tear down every time he makes policies or endorses policies that are blue women it's not the president stengel handedly steering the country do with the direction that benefits some women we have to give credit to women's movements always been pushing for these policies and. that is out
11:33 pm
there yet any piece that i say something that they say yes. i'd just like to follow up on what nicole said earlier about the complexity and the ones yes but the problem is that if we saw ginny which is a complex problem its roots are conflicts its implications are complex manifestations of it were simply by simply faded so the question of good and bad wish in a black and white then it becomes a participant then my worry is that people will really go back to their hate ok and and grounds and of course on the point s. . it's it's correct the president is me sargent's sure the problem is how do you see that is that because it's the philippines mr genius because the president is we saw a genius or some people would like to say that we saw jimmy still be reading an ugly head because the president is a misogynist our it is precisely because we really have a structured sojourn in our society that the president and the speaker of the house
11:34 pm
and the senate president and to be. back using one you know he's made it of the shell game senator let me finish let me let me finish in that. the point is if you're going to put that in party sentences instead of convincing people to your side then it becomes a parties and wire and therefore you missed the point of a learning each ng i did becomes a teaching learning moment then you missed that because people will tend to go back to their partisan bias yes that's what i hear because nicole recites the describe this situation are we the people see that as problematic but it's familiar no not the way i see it is giving him a pass when he shouldn't be given a free pass now when it's our president and our laws darn you're not giving up on me as well larry i don't let you not get away with you can say that data because it's ok. oh no so and the tornado and i hear where you're coming from on the one
11:35 pm
hand you say the public is letting him get away with this and on the other hand and tonio you mentioned something that i had to write down here structural massage me we all realize it's there in your words i want to play on that with this video comment that we got from reuben james who pitched the idea for today show that we're doing and he talks about the impact of that structural massage and have a listen president this misfortunate speak remarks and women have translated into more brutal violent and distasteful docs against him during his administration he speeches he always mentions about the binary distinction of what's biological e-mail what's a biological female and with this kind of distinction it's a social construction of what's the function of women in society and this kind of thinking limits them into a more structured disadvantage nicole i want to pass i went over to you when the people that you talk to did the ideas that he brings up in his video comment
11:36 pm
resonate with them that there is a structural issue here. and well it's not a ticket as such but it's very obvious that there are clearly gendered implications of president today discloses i think what i want to emphasize here as well is that while his vulgar words matter i think words matter i think there and said and president definitely must not have a free pass but i think we also have to focus on something more lead and things that are clearly gendered but not ridiculous because the president is not drawing attention to them so for example the president's bloody war on drugs the main victims here are going in these are with us these are mothers who lost their loved ones and sometimes they feel like with the president says something sexist on camera we tend to focus on that which is obviously important but i think we also have to draw attention to something that's less overt and give voice to women who don't have as much choice when it comes to this issue and i think the challenging part here is that some of the women we've talked to not a lot but some of the women we dug to unfortunately see the president as the only
11:37 pm
person who can help them with their condition so we've got to build those of the drug war who actually blame the police for the doings of their husbands and they would actually think that the president who brought race himself as a father figure is the only person that can help them can we blame these women for thinking that this is the only president a sexist president that can help them not a certainty and i think this is how my ideas speak to professor good jarrett is atheist and this is a structural issue if our courts were working if our police were less corrupt then these women would not be in their hopes on a president who knew that the feminist sensibilities but also portrays themselves as someone who helps women it's very tricky i'm incredibly frustrated and i read it out and people like india and the mental help use these together because it's incredibly complex and breastfeeding so guess i want to play and i and i sit tight for a second i want to get straight away i'm going to but i want to share something with our audience who are watching right now. the humor present
11:38 pm
a tete a is questionable but it definitely flows along for the idea of a women are there as a punchline so we put together some clips to give you an example of that and then i'm going to go straight to and i have a look. one of the little garbled. she left before only. one of the most. peace of promising virgins when you go to. a black hole divergence here not in heaven. that we let a lover cruising whistling or calling a woman in public with words having duty going to the sions or implications is actually sexual harassment so it seems as if you by leaping your own ordinance do you have any reaction or. you know you don't have any business that being me.
11:39 pm
is. so much material right there but it wasn't any of those instances in guy that influence the setting of a livin it was this headline here next on but man won't be a woman to target a says that was that was the final straw right that may have been the final straw for a lot of the buyer or. people involved but i've been writing every time he's come out with a sexist statement let's get that clear ok but speaking of or when the call speaks of windows of drug war victims and mothers of drug were victims many of them i would call and i dialed the mother he explained the thinking behind it but by a cold is i am a woman and i have no mind that there is i will fight so this me who has it's
11:40 pm
got too important rallying cries unpack them for us. ok it's not just me suddenly old to me such an is a big point. it's also that many. see that this is only really a reflection of a lot of other fatal flaws into thirty including the autocratic streak that had led to a drug war that has killed thousands of filipinos and many of the mothers and wives of those long winded drug war. because they know they see their plight you know as a reflection or a continuum of detectors tendencies and it's not just me such an image jinnie he's actually a reflection of the whole feudal he is when he says that you know nobody can stop me nobody can question me that is exactly his problem and that is how we comes out
11:41 pm
