concentrated on the job at hand and told myself you can do this i knew if i didn't get accepted into the girls or chris rock and i would have to do hard manual labor that would have been the end of me and. esther was only eighteen years old when she was deported to auschwitz she had already been separated from her parents who were later murdered by the nazis. as part of the girl's orchestra esther played songs as the prisoners marched out to do their work . later she also had to play when the trains arrived bringing thousands of people to the gas chambers. this is the slips of us the us that's the worth thing that has ever happened to me because i felt so hopeless i couldn't help these people i knew they were going to the best now.
3:04 am
behind us did the s.s. soldiers with their rifles and if we hadn't played them they would have shot us inventin. more than a million jews were murdered in auschwitz as the bishop ran or escaped death but most of her peers didn't she feels it's her duty to tell young people what the nazis did she goes to schools reads from her memoirs and gives concerts she's backed up by a hip hop band called microphone mafia. concept was to bring members a lawyer to compose rap music using personal letters and journals from former concentration camp prisoners it was written. by using rap they hope to connect with today's young people here in a cohen high school getting a warm response. they've been sharing a stage for ten years now but the recent rise of right wing radicalism worries

3:06 am
love how strong she is unlike criminal justice reform immigration she. just doesn't allow people to believe her like she asked the hard questions she keeps her composure she's really will spoken i am excited to see her share her platform set and speak about what matters and ultimately be reinvigorated by her yeah this rally was supposed to be a show of political force and it certainly looked that way when kaamelott harris took to the stage the daughter of jamaican and indian immigrants promised to be a fighter for the people stating that it was time to restore what she views as a loss of american values on the president strom we are here because the american dream and our american democracy are under attack and on the line like never before and we are here at this moment in time because we must answer. a
3:07 am
fundamental question who are we. who are we as americans let's answer that question. america we are better than this. i don't think yet but we're dozens of democrats lining up to run in twenty twenty the crucial question will be whether the party things come along harris has a chance of beating down all trump supporters definitely think she does and to send people to understand them you're the fucking understand the needs of our country and she has morals which we don't have right now with a year and a half until the democrats pick their presidential nominee kaamelott harris still has a long way to go but her oakland rally was beyond doubt a good start. ethiopia has its first
3:08 am
female president and there are lots of female ministers in the government. but away from the cities women and girls still don't have the same chances as their male counterparts. this campus could be anywhere in the world but this is if you and something here is strikingly different. in this eclipse you better say i'm lucky to be here at the university because most girls in ethiopia do not have access to university like this is my life now you need to look at that and not doing any of us well that's because most girls don't even make it to secondary school hard to believe given the fact that if the opium made headlines when somehow the wedding was named the country's first female president and there are more women in politics. in the countryside where most ethiopians live their men are still confined to traditional roles i see girls coming home from elementary school and

asking them about their goals a doctor. said each or engineer the almost all children go to primary school these days only thirty percent of girls make it beyond eighth grade the notion that girls do not belong in school persists in rural villages and if a family can afford to send a child to school boys usually take precedence. from others believe that although women get an education they will not succeed. about it because. most girls drop out of school when they are fifteen like their high she wants to become a doctor but her parents don't have the money to support her she says. you know you think the status quo should change. and men should come into the kitchen more often than. her reality working in this household for three hundred b.
3:10 am
out of about ten dollars a month that she sends to her family in a village nearby she hopes to find someone who will sponsor her education her employer feels more lucky she can afford so high service as a maid over ethiopian coffee she tells us that her husband encouraged her to work as a nurse instead of staying at home and raising their child because he did it just me personally i have a good life but growing up i have seen many women facing obstacles. i have witnessed women raped in school if you have seen women get kicked out by their husband because they wanted to go to school. and i have seen men lying about having kids and taking girls home marrying them is a receipt of slaves that you get and. back in the capital back to a different world women here are successfully asserting themselves in society and raising their voices one of them is how we are a young reporter and host of
3:11 am
a show called women in focus. your good afternoon to day's women in focus will take a look at you during your one of six bring movements and our own. today's focus is a movement that fight for gender equality how it tells us the problem in ethiopia is not just with men though most times when we talk about issues of women we're talking about the issues do suffer from men but women also we put ourselves down we do not not exactly put ourselves out but we do not realize or put into how sometimes we go along with the status quo so the things that we do to change that status quo the mindset we have towards our own selves that's very crucial if the o.p.'s capital is single rapid change on that a prime minister ahmed but there's still a long way to go before a noticeable progress is made on improving the lives of ordinary women.
