Delphine Delafon Loses Rights to Her Name — to Former Intern

NAME GAME: Delphine Delafon has lost control of her namesake company.
The designer on Thursday sent out an e-mail announcing that her company is in takeover proceedings in a commercial court.
“I am no longer the designer nor the director of the company despite it still carrying my name and will continue to exist,” she said, adding that she was pursuing new adventures.
In a separate e-mail, Delafon told WWD that she had been planning to put things on hold and pursue a freelance career after her partner left and negotiations with a potential investor failed to bear fruit. The company had hit financial troubles and was being liquidated when a former intern bought it through the Paris Commercial Court without telling her, she said, without disclosing the former intern’s name.
“[It’s a] really a crazy story. And now she has my name,” exclaimed the designer whose fate echoes that of designers including Chantal Thomass and Jil Sander.
Known for her mixed-media bucket-bag pouches on twisted chains, the Parisian bag designer’s business started organically seven years ago when she began making bags for herself and started receiving orders from friends. She added a clothing capsule in 2016.
Delafon generated 90 percent of sales through custom-made orders

Angelina Jolie Calls on NATO to Protect Women’s Rights in Impassioned Op-Ed

Angelina Jolie is putting a spotlight on violence against women around the world — saying it is “often more dangerous to be a woman in a warzone today than it is to be a soldier” — and calling on NATO to spearhead change.

In an op-ed co-written with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg for The Guardian, the filmmaker outlines how the NATO alliance can be a leader in ending gender-based violence, especially as military tactics.

“Despite being prohibited by international law, sexual violence continues to be employed as a tactic of war in numerous conflicts from Myanmar to Ukraine and Syria to Somalia,” she says. “It includes mass rape, gang rape, sexual slavery, and rape as a form of torture, ethnic cleansing and terrorism. It accounts in large part for why it is often more dangerous to be a woman in a warzone today than it is to be a soldier.”

Jolie, 42, adds, “In our different roles we have seen how conflicts in which women’s bodies and rights are systematically abused last longer, cause deeper wounds and are much harder to resolve and overcome. Ending gender-based violence is therefore a vital issue of peace and security as well as of social justice.”

The actress tasks NATO with becoming a guardian of women’s rights, falling in line with their mission to be “a shield against aggression and the fear of aggression,” according to President Harry Truman.

RELATED VIDEO: Angelina Jolie’s Moving Speech for World Refugee Day

Jolie’s plan involves NATO integrating women into positions of leadership within the organization, bolstering military training in human rights protection and continuing to implement standard operating practices.

She also asks that NATO gives greater recognition to the roles of gender advisers and female soldiers interacting with communities, and that they use data to identify patterns in conflict-related sexual violence.

“It is humanity’s shame that violence against women, whether in peaceful societies or during times of war, has been universally regarded as a lesser crime,” Jolie writes. “There is finally hope that we can change this. We owe it to ourselves – men and women alike – and to future generations.”

France Awards Human Rights Prize to Copenhagen Summit’s Eva Kruse

COPENHAGEN — The French embassy in Denmark has awarded its Human Rights Prize to Eva Kruse, founder and chief executive officer of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit and former head of Copenhagen Fashion Week, for her work on sustainability in fashion and on promoting better working conditions in garment factories.
Kruse launched the Copenhagen Summit on sustainability in fashion on the margins of the United Nations’ “COP 15” climate change conference in 2009. Since then the biannual conferences have brought together fashion executives, humanitarian organizations, policy-makers and others to discuss ways to mobilize the international fashion industry to become more fair and environmentally sustainable.
In an early-morning reception at the French embassy during Copenhagen Fashion Week, Ambassador François Zimeray joked that the night had been short for many after an evening of fashion parties.
He pointed out that while the joy and frivolity of the fashion industry may seem opposed to the seriousness of human rights issues, both fields dealt with individual dignity and freedom of expressions.
“Wearing fashion says, ‘I am a person, I am an individual and I want to dialogue with the world,’” Zimeray said. “Fashion has to do with the dignity of the person, so it cannot work against the dignity of people [who work in the

Emmett Till’s Accuser Recants Part of Her Story — 60 Years After His Beating Death Stoked Civil Rights Movement

The woman at the center of the Emmett Till murder case has spoken out for the first time, more than 60 years later, admitting that part of her story about the black teenager is false, a new book claims.

Till’s brutal beating death in Mississippi in 1955, the acquittal of his professed killers by an all-white jury and the photos of his dead body sparked outrage outside the state — becoming a catalyst for the national civil rights movement.

Authorities say the 14-year-old from Chicago was killed during a visit to Mississippi after Carolyn Bryant Donham, a white woman then named Carolyn Bryant, reportedly accused him of grabbing her by the hand and waist and acting lewdly at her shop.

Till was kidnapped days later from a relative’s home and then beaten and mutilated, before being shot, by Donham’s shop-owner husband at the time, Roy Bryant, and his half-brother, J.W. Milam.

Till’s body was sunk in the Tallahatchie River, where it was eventually found floating.

After a highly publicized trial, Bryant and Milam were acquitted of Till’s kidnapping and murder in September 1955 by an all-white, all-male jury. They deliberated for an hour. 

Donham testified at the trial and, according to Vanity Fair, her allegations were entered into the record and shared with reporters by her attorneys — but they were not heard by the jury, who had been excused from the courtroom.

In January 1956, Bryant and Milam confessed to their guilt in Till’s death in a Look magazine article. (Both men have since died.)

Donham avoided public attention for much of her life, ignoring journalists’ repeated requests. But she sat down with author and Duke University scholar Timothy B. Tyson 10 years ago for his new book, The Blood of Emmett Till, according to Vanity Fair and the Austin American-Statesman.

Donham’s 2007 interview with, when she was 72, is being published for the first time. Of her accusation that Till had physically and verbally harassed her, she told Tyson, according to Vanity Fair: “That part’s not true.”

“Honestly, I just don’t remember,” Donham said of her fateful meeting with Till, according to the Statesman. “It was 50 years ago. You tell these stories for so long that they seem true.” Donham’s allegation that Till whistled at her has also been disputed.

On the stand in 1955, however, Donham claimed Till had said something “unprintable” to her and she was “scared to death,” according to Vanity Fair.

Tyson said Donham, now 82, wrote her own memoir, More Than a Wolf Whistle, which is kept at the University of North Carolina but will not be available until the 2030s, at Donham’s request, according to Vanity Fair and the Statesman. (University officials could not immediately confirm the memoir’s existence.)

During their meeting, Tyson said Donham told him, “Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him.” She also expressed feeling “tender sorrow” for Till’s mother, Mamie Elizabeth Till-Mobley.

Messages left with Donham and her relatives for comment on Tyson’s book were not returned Friday.

Boilerplate: The Fine Print, Vanishing Rights, and the Rule of Law

Boilerplate: The Fine Print, Vanishing Rights, and the Rule of Law


Boilerplate–the fine-print terms and conditions that we become subject to when we click I agree online, rent an apartment, enter an employment contract, sign up for a cellphone carrier, or buy travel tickets–pervades all aspects of our modern lives. On a daily basis, most of us accept boilerplate provisions without realizing that should a dispute arise about a purchased good or service, the nonnegotiable boilerplate terms can deprive us of our right to jury trial and relieve providers of responsibility for harm. Boilerplate is the first comprehensive treatment of the problems posed by the increasing use of these terms, demonstrating how their use has degraded traditional notions of consent, agreement, and contract, and sacrificed core rights whose loss threatens the democratic order. Margaret Jane Radin examines attempts to justify the use of boilerplate provisions by claiming either that recipients freely consent to them or that economic efficiency demands them, and she finds these justifications wanting. She argues, moreover, that our courts, legislatures, and regulatory agencies have fallen short in their evaluation and oversight of the use of boilerplate clauses. To improve legal evaluation of boilerplate, Radin offers a new analytical framework, one that takes into account the nature of the rights affected, the quality of the recipient''s consent, and the extent of the use of these terms. Radin goes on to offer possibilities for new methods of boilerplate evaluation and control, among them the bold suggestion that tort law rather than contract law provides a preferable analysis for some boilerplate schemes. She concludes by discussing positive steps that NGOs, legislators, regulators, courts, and scholars could take to bring about better practices.

When It Comes To Feminism And Reproductive Rights, Survey Says Labels Don’t Work

New research from Vox revealed that while a very small percentage of Americans identify as feminists, the majority still believe in gender equality.

The survey included 1,067 participants from across the U.S. and covered topics including gender equality, LGBT issues and abortion. Twenty-one percent of participants were between 18 and 29 years old, 25 percent were between 30 and 44 years old, 27 percent were between 45 and 59 years old and 27 percent were over 60 years old. About half the participants identified as female and half as male.

Vox found that only 18 percent of Americans consider themselves feminists. Fifty-two percent of survey participants said that they didn’t consider themselves feminists, 26 percent were “unsure” and 4 percent refused to answer the question.

With so few people identifying as feminists, you’d think most Americans wouldn’t support gender equality. Wrong. Vox found that a whopping 85 percent of participants responded that they do “believe in equality for women.” And 76 percent of participants believe there is still work to be done when it comes to “equality for women in work, life and politics.”

While the majority of Americans don’t choose to identify as feminists, they support the ideals of feminism. In the great words of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “Feminism is the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.” It’s really that simple.

The survey found that Americans are equally as confused about where they stand on abortion as feminism. When asked about abortion, only 28 percent of participants agreed with the statement: “Abortion should be legal in almost all cases.”

However, when the survey question incorporated women, the results changed. When people were asked if “women should have a legal right to safe and accessible abortion in almost all cases,” 37 percent said yes.

“That’s a jump of nine percentage points in who thinks abortion ought to be generally legal, just by highlighting the fact that a woman is involved in the situation,” Vox’s Sarah Kliff wrote.

These results indicate just how complicated Americans’ feelings about reproductive rights are. “The public has diverse views on abortion. But it’s rarely a split between ‘abortion is right’ and ‘abortion is wrong,'” Kliff wrote. “Instead, there is a nuance that the public conversation typically misses: a factoring in of personal circumstances and beliefs that manifest themselves in deeply held individual views.”

While many people shy away from labels when it comes to women’s issues, it seems that most agree with the idea behind them: Women should have the same social, political and economic rights as men.

He was attending elementary school in a small town in Michigan’s upper peninsula, a place with very little racial diversity. Yet, he says, the grainy images of civil rights marches he saw on television inspired a lifetime of learning.

For Herb Metoyer, the period from 1963 to 1965 is still an open wound. In 1963, during his first tour as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, he lost several aircrafts and quite a few crew members, which he refers to as his first experience with death. Then, in November, he and the rest of the country learned of John F. Kennedy Jr.’s assassination. Finally, when he returned to the United States in early 1964, he was told that his brother, a fellow helicopter pilot, died when his aircraft crashed in the South China Sea.

Invisible Hands: Narratives of Human Rights in the Global Economy

Invisible Hands: Narratives of Human Rights in the Global Economy


The men and women in “Invisible Hands” reveal the human rights abuses occurring behind the scenes of the global economy. These narrators — including phone manufacturers in China, copper miners in Zambia, garment workers in Bangladesh, and farmers around the world — reveal the secret history of the things we buy, including lives and communities devastated by low wages, environmental degradation, and political repression. Sweeping in scope and rich in detail, these stories capture the interconnectivity of all people struggling to support themselves and their families. Narrators include Kalpona, a leading Bangladeshi labor organizer who led her first strike at 15; Han, who, as a teenager, began assembling circuit boards for an international electronics company based in Seoul; Albert, a copper miner in Zambia who, during a wage protest, was shot by representatives of the Chinese-owned mining company that he worked for; and Sanjay, who grew up in the shadow of the Bhopal chemical disaster, one of the worst industrial accidents in history.

Circumcision, Public Health, Genital Autonomy and Cultural Rights

Circumcision, Public Health, Genital Autonomy and Cultural Rights


Circumcision is one of the oldest and most common surgical processes, being practised, for a range of medical, social and religious reasons, on up to 30% of males worldwide. It is currently being promoted by a range of health bodies as a means of tackling HIV in developing countries. Yet, there is significant concern about sexual, physiological and psychological effects and complications and its prophylactic effectiveness. In examining a case in which a failed circumcision was performed for religious reasons, the Regional Court in Cologne decided that the practice contravened the bodily autonomy of minors and was subject to the same legislation used to classify female genital cutting as assault. This, understandably, aroused serious concerns among various religious communities who practise circumcision. At the same time as religious groups seek to protect circumcision from comparisons with female genital cutting, there is a trend, particularly in post-colonial thought in the US, to revise negative understandings of female genital cutting by making cautious, positive comparisons with circumcision. This collection considers the apparent contradictions and complications of the contemporary status and deployment of the many forms of genital cutting, raising a serious, wide-reaching question: what scope should society have to impose physically invasive rites on people? This book was originally published as a special issue of “Global Discourse.”
