Russia, from Jan. 1, shortened the list of jobs it bars women from holding because of their physical demands or hazardous nature, allowing them to become metro drivers, train conductors and lorry drivers. Instead of fighting, we could finally just take this job after passing our exams.”The battle for Russian women to have access to professions deemed too demanding or hazardous by the state began long before Dorofeyeva’s time. It eventually reached the Constitutional Court in 2012, but women remained barred from operating metro trains. “But of course I didn’t think it would take 10 years.”Klevets has been pleased to see her legal battle stir debate, even though scores of professions, including some that require exposure to explosives and chemicals, remain out of reach for Russian women. “Everything should be available” to women, Klevets said.

Lizzie Borden’s Notoriety Is This Home’s Selling Point

The case would become more enthralling: Andrew Borden’s 32-year-old daughter, Lisbeth A. Borden, known as Lizzie, would be put on trial for the murders. For more than a century, her story has inspired dramas on stage and screen, countless books, an opera and a ballet. And the allure of the unsolved crime continues to draw people to the Borden house to this day. That the Borden case continues to capture the public imagination reflects the heinousness of the crime as well as the identity of the accused. A middle-class, respectable New England woman seemed like an unlikely murderer, making Borden’s trial a national media sensation in 1893.

LONDON — British front-line workers who were applauded on doorsteps in the early weeks of the pandemic now confront a torrent of polarization and misinformation. Doctors, teachers and other exhausted workers say they are feeling incredibly demoralized after reading social media posts insisting Covid-19 is a hoax or overblown. Conspiracy theories are far from new here, and Britain has grappled with coronavirus-related misinformation since the start of the pandemic. Russell Sears says he has considered moving abroad, partly because of the misinformation that's becoming rife in Britain. These favorable transatlantic comparisons are little comfort to front-line British workers.
