samynemir The world is ageing rapidly. People aged 60 and older make up over 11 per cent of the global population, and by 2050, that number will rise to about 22%, according to @UNFPA.
In #UnitedStates, elders are 1 in every 8 Americans. Are they part of the conversation?

samynemir #HillaryClinton would be the first #woman #president of #UnitedStates. She announced today her candidacy, launching a website in English and #Spanish and a video that features a #Latino talking in Spanish, #gay, #lesbian and #black couples, an elder, an #asian and a single #mother.
In terms of gender, the U.S. is ranked No. 54 out of 142 countries in the category of women in political #power, according to @forbes. Still, women hold only 19% of seats in #Congress and the House of Representatives. The path for equality and meaningful participation for women it's improving but it has a long way ahead. (I took this photo back in Oct. 2014, when she was leaving De la Renta's mass and noticed I was the only photographer in that area.)

samynemir Conquering the Windows. | Girls in El Barrio Series 5/5

East Harlem is one of #NYC neighborhoods where many #Latinos settled down since 1940s. Thousands of #PuertoRicans came and baptized the area as #ElBarrio infusing their culture and symbols all over the place. In the last decades, migration to other states and gentrification have brought a new wave of immigrants, especially mexicans, dominicans but all over the world. Despite the changes, this neighborhood is one of the few that keeps alive that #history and a vibrant sense of #community. It is home of many low-income families and public housing but it has experiencing a commercial and cultural revitalization. Globally, there are 1.8 billion youth, girls accounting around the half. Of them, 62 million girls are out of school due mainly to poor investments. Increasing their attendance to secondary #education just 1% adds 0.3% to a country's GDP and the girls' potential income in 15% to 25%. Then ensuring their edudaction and #empowerment is not just a smart action but the right thing to do to fulfill their #humanrights.

samynemir #Father and his #daughter | Girls in #ElBarrio Series 3/5

Today I was amazed by the great number of #fathers walking through the city with their children. Wheter it was with one or four, they look naturally taking care and enjoying time with them without the #mother/female's presence.
