11 Beautiful Malay Names and What They Mean

Spoken by 290 million people across Southeast Asia, the Malay language is heavily influenced by Sanskrit, Arabic and English. This influence extends to popular Malay names today.

Malay is part of the Austronesian language family and it’s primarily spoken in Southeast Asian nations like Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei. Thanks to linguistic influences by Arabic, Sanskrit and English, Malay is a highly-evolved language that also uses the Latin script. Personal names, in particular, celebrate the sophistication of this language while hinting at an individual’s ethnic and cultural lineage.

This popular female name can attribute its popularity to the prophet Muhammad’s third wife, Ā’ishah bint Abī Bakr, who is also known as ‘Mother of the Believers.’ She is widely believed to be Muhammad’s favorite wife. ‘A’isha’ also means ‘alive’ in Arabic. In Malay, the name is also spelled ‘Aishah’ and ‘Aisyah.’

Another popular female name, ‘Amina’ means ‘truthful and trustworthy.’ It is sometimes shortened to ‘Minah,’ and is also spelled as ‘Aminah’ or ‘Ameena.’ Aminah bint Wahb was also the mother of the prophet Muhammad.

Although recognized as a unisex name, this name is usually reserved for females in Malaysia. It originates from Arabic and means ‘light.’ It is also spelled ‘Noor.’ Famous women named ‘Noor’ include Queen Noor (former Queen of Jordan) and Princess Noor Pahlavi (a princess of Iran).

This female name hails from Sanskrit, meaning ‘daughter’ or ‘princess. ’ The lead female character of Malaysia’s hit TV series Gol & Gincu is named Putri Farhana Aliya (played by actress Nur Fazura).

Another popular female name, this one has its roots in Arabic. It means ‘joy’ and ‘gladness.’ Malaysia’s award-winning gymnast is named Farah Ann Abdul Hadi.

This name can be attributed to Greek, in which it means ‘wisdom,’ or to Urdu, in which it means ‘beautiful.’ Famous people named Sofia include Sofía Vergara and Sofia Coppola.

Popularly given to males, this name means ‘much praised’ and was one of the many names of the prophet Muhammad. It is also spelled ‘Ahmed.’

This male name has its origins in Arabic, meaning ‘most honorable one.’ The most famous Malaysian celebrity with this name is Ashraf Sinclair, who starred in the well-loved Gol & Gincu series.

Originally an Arabic name, Irfan is a male name meaning ‘knowledge,’ ‘wisdom’ or ‘learning. ’ Notable people with this name include national discus thrower Mohd Irfan Shamsuddin and musical prodigy Tengku Ahmad Irfan.

This masculine Arabic name is usually associated with kindness, politeness and the appropriate attitude. Malaysia’s deputy health minister is Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya.

Derived from Hebrew, this male name refers to ‘the one who is like God.’ It is the name of one of the main angels of Allah, and is also spelled ‘Mikail.’

The Muslim perception of beauty In Indonesia and Malaysia | Nanyang Business School

By Neil Gains

The beauty every woman desires?

Much has been written about the rise of hijabers and the modernisation of Muslim values. But a lot of these perspectives interpret cultural shifts through the lens of Western values. So what is the truth about modern Muslim women in South East Asia and how they feel about beauty?

In a recent study of Muslim women and beauty in Indonesia and Malaysia, myself, together with researchers from ABN Impact and Zest Research Consultancy talked face-to-face with Indonesian and Malaysian women about “the beauty that they desire for themselves”.

The women were aged from 18 to 35 and at different life stages (single and married; working, students and housewives). Half of them wore the hijab (known as the tudong in Malaysia) and half did not.

A framework for understanding emotional goals

The discussions were designed to provide rich insights into the emotional goals of Muslim women in both countries. Participants were asked to do some homework before coming, finding images that helped them to express “the beauty that I desire for myself”. The first part of each discussion reviewed these images and the different associations with each image.

The second part of the interview focused on understanding participant’s emotional goals using TapestryWorks’ proprietary StoryWorks framework and Visual Think cards, based around 12 core human goals and the positive and negative emotions triggered by them.

Participants were asked to select three to five images that best reflected “the beauty that I desire for myself” and share stories about each image. Although everyone had a choice of 96 cards, there was a striking consistency in many of the images chosen demonstrating the ability of the approach to help people express their true feelings using an implicit and intuitive task.

 

Naturally smart and rebellious?

For Indonesian women, the feeling of beauty is associated with the goal of feeling confident and smart and the desire to feel authentic (to yourself, to others and to your beliefs). Although these goals often conflict, they also represent different personas of individual beauty relating to different times, places and social situations.

The most frequently chosen individual image was that of a golden egg standing out in a box of plain eggs and representing the desire to be different. This image represents the desire to stand out, but not too much.

The most popular emotional goal is that of Knowledge, often represented by an image of a girl reading a book in a library (well read rather than a smart brat). Other goals chosen were associated with the need for confidence, for fun and play and for intimacy.

Indonesian Muslim women also place importance on the need to nurture beauty. Hijab wearers in particular associated the idea of nurture with family life while non-wearers more often associated this with the desire for a beautiful home. Both groups saw beauty in very natural terms, linked to ideas of health and wellness and not just beauty products.

 

A greater need for confidence?​

For Malaysian women, beauty is related to many of the same goals as those described by Indonesians, including the desire for confidence and the need to feel free and be comfortable with their own beauty. However, Malaysian Muslims selected slightly different images. In particular, many Malay women chose an image of an individual standing on top of a mountain, perhaps reflecting a greater need for individuality and less of a need to belong to a group.

Malaysian women focus very strongly on the importance of confidence, and talk about the desire for a little magic in their relationships. Women who are working mention the competitive aspect of beauty and the desire to be looked up to by work mates and those around them. This is reflected in a reliance on accessories in everyday dress.

For all women, especially housewives, the focus is much more on the home and the relationship with their husband. Accordingly, they are more likely than Indonesian women to choose imagery reflecting the need for intimacy. This reveals a greater insecurity about this key relationship and a greater dependence on one person.

 

Beauty as nature intended

The most striking difference between Malay and Indonesian women is that Malay Muslims feel a much greater need to “boost” their beauty across more situations. They expect to have to wear cosmetics, accessories and fashion items in order to be noticed and respected by their peers in many more social contexts.

Indonesian Muslims talk much more about natural beauty, and the need to look after your body. They see cosmetics as an enhancement required more for special occasions, especially when attending social events with their husbands. The Bahasa term for cosmetics, “dandan” which literally translates as “grooming”, reflects this difference, focusing on those things that are added to natural beauty.

The difference between temporary and permanent changes was raised in both countries, reflecting that halal cosmetic changes can be washed away for prayers, while more permanent ones cannot. Most participants would never countenance cosmetic surgery, unlike many North Asian women, and even hair coloring and nail varnish are considered quite risqué. In both countries inner beauty was considered equally or more important than outer beauty.

 

The culture of belonging

Indonesian women talk much more about having a sense of belonging to a community than those in Malaysia and it is religion that provides this comfort and connection. Elizabeth Pisani, journalist and author writes in her book “Indonesia, Etc”, “it (religion) is a visible badge of identity which suits the need to clump together, so very pronounced in clannish Indonesia”.

For Malaysian women the need to belong is more focused on their relationship with their husband. This is true even of single Malay women, who often talk about the future, e.g. “when I have a husband”, especially when referring to beauty in more intimate contexts. Therefore Malay women make a greater distinction between in-home and out-of-home appearance.

It is important to understand the history of the religious, social and legal environments of the two countries. They share much in common, including a large part of their official languages, but there are differences in the style of Islam and Islamic law in shaping individual beliefs.

 

 

The context of beauty

Although Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world at around 87% of the population, it is also one of the most open Muslim countries. Indonesia’s tolerance is based on a constitutional framework introduced in 1945, partly to resolve conflicts between Muslims, Christians and nationalists. The Pancasila (the official philosophical foundation of Indonesia) places great importance on the freedom to practice other religions as well as ideals like humanity and social justice.

By contrast, Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, with 60% of the population practicing it. Islam is enshrined in the legal framework of the country and has jurisdiction over marriage and divorce for Muslims. A Pew Research study in 2013 found that Malaysia has some of the strictest views of any Muslim country.

For example, only 8% of Malaysian Muslims agree that a wife should have the right to divorce her husband (men and women) compared with 32% in Indonesia. Likewise, only 36% of Malaysian Muslims agree that sons and daughters should have equal inheritance rights compared with 76% of those in Indonesia. Clearly the cultural and legal norms of a society influence individual views of roles and responsibilities, and this appears to be echoed in the way in which Indonesian and Malaysian women understand beauty in relation to their own personal goals and life situation.

Universal beauty myth or local truths?

Although many international brands have caught on to the importance of local context, especially in terms of the wearing of the hijab, many are still lagging behind local brands in connecting with the emotional tone of local culture.

Much international advertising reflects a notion of beauty as a science rather than an art and as serious rather than playful. Based on the findings of this research, we believe this is the wrong positioning for Malaysia and even more so in Indonesia.

A common thread across both markets is a latent ambiguity towards more sexual portrayals of beauty. Surprisingly, Malay Muslims are more tolerant of sexual imagery and some use it to express their desire for a slimmer body, the major concern of this population (Malaysia has the highest prevalence of obesity of any Asian country). In contrast, sexual imagery is censored in Indonesia, is less available and consequently, Indonesian women are considerably less comfortable with it.

Both Indonesian and Malaysian women view the “Barbie doll” image of beauty as relevant and appropriate when they are with their husbands, but emphatically inappropriate in many other contexts. That is not to say that Muslim women reject such images or perceive them as negative but rather that such images are not relevant to how they see themselves and their role in society.

The feeling of beauty

To summarise, for Muslim women beauty is all about success and happiness. In the workplace, that means feeling confident and authoritative, during leisure time, the need to feel relaxed and comfortable, and in relationships, the need for feel sexy and appreciated.

Wearing the hijab is considered to enhance beauty in both countries, even for those who do not currently wear one. Although this is an important part of women’s identity, it is only one symbol of being a Muslim woman in modern South East Asia.

Brands that want to market to Muslim women must understand and adapt to local cultural context beyond the more obvious labels and superficial symbols. Here are five overall take-outs for those who want to market beauty brands in Indonesia and Malaysia:

  • Beauty is about art as well as science
  • Beauty should be less serious and more fun
  • Beauty is not just about “me”
  • Beauty can be sexy, but keep it subtle
  • Beauty can be enhanced, but what lies beneath also matters

In a country obsessed with fair skin, Malaysia’s brown women are finally in the spotlight

Hundreds of women in Malaysia are joining the thousands around the world to take a stand against skin-whitening products.

Not only are they sending a strong message to the multi-billion dollar skincare industry that for decades has been whitewashed with models and products promoting fairer skin, these women are also calling them out for promoting biased beauty standards and colorism while selling products that could be harmful to health. 

But with so many Malaysian women still obsessed with obtaining fairer skin, there is a long way to go before society can fully appreciate diversity in beauty.

Since 2016, the global #UnfairandLovely online movement continues to trend in Malaysia today, taking a jab at the name of the popular Fair and Lovely skin-whitening product line that has been around since 1975. The brand has since changed its name to Glow and Lovely after pressure from the public to stop promoting fair skin. 

“Back then, it was common for young girls to want fair ‘white’ skin because you’d be considered as beautiful when you’re fair,” Malaysian news presenter Dharshaini Mary Grace told Coconuts KL in a recent interview. “It was the era of ‘fair & lovely.’ There were no ads that portrayed dark-skinned girls as beautiful.”

The 27-year-old is also a supporter of the #UnfairandLovely online movement that began on social media by Texas University students Pax Jones, Mirusha Yogarajah, and her sister, Yanusha. 

More brown women in the media

In the past two years, more brown women are being represented in Malaysian media, including local coffee brand Wonda Coffee, whose rare television ad recently featured at least three talents with a dark complexion.

Darker-skinned models are also appearing more frequently online with local cosmetics brands like Velvet Vanity, BeauTyra, Orkid Cosmetics as well as jewelry brand Wanderlust + Co featuring them in their social media campaigns. 

 

Last year, beauty contestant Haneesya Hanee became the first woman with a dark complexion to win the popular Malaysian beauty pageant Dewi Remaja. That victory drew backlash from some members of the public over the color of her skin. 

Unfortunately, that title was revoked after the then 20-year-old was spotted allegedly drinking alcohol at a party, which is illegal for Muslims in Islamic Malaysia.

Since January, nearly 3,000 Malaysians have been advocating the #UnfairandLovely movement in the Brown girls of Malaysia Facebook group, sharing photos of local brown women to “empower girls to stop bleaching and whitening their faces to please society,” the page said. 

Fighting colorism

The brown beauty uprising in Malaysia comes on the back of whitening products becoming glaringly uncool around the world as more brands choose to promote diverse skin colors. 

Others that have joined Fair and Lovely manufacturer Unilever in distancing itself from promoting fair skin include conglomerates Johnson & Johnson, L’Oreal, and Amazon.

The conscious rebranding by major companies is considered a “huge win” for Brown girls of Malaysia. But there is still a lot of work to be done, including issues of colorism stemming from the promotion of skin-whitening products. 

“Renaming it is not going to solve the problem,” the group said online. “But it’s still a huge win and a major step in fighting colorism. Hopefully, this will make more people realize the problem with fairness creams and how it promotes internalized racism.”

Dharshaini, who is of Indian and Filipino descent, said she has been the subject of racist jokes due to her darker skin tone.

“I’ve got comments about not needing to use an umbrella in the sun since I was already dark. Some words people have used on me were, ‘dirty’ and ‘hitam macam keling (black like a keling),” she said. “Keling” is a derogatory term in Malaysia often used to insult people from the Indian community.

“It’s a bit sad because it took so long for brands to realize that skin-lightening is damaging, but I think it’s great they’re finally moving with the times,” she said, noting that brands could still sell skin-whitening products under a different name. 

“At the end of the day, consumers have to be aware of what goes [onto] their skin,” she added.

Others feel that skin-whitening products set unrealistic beauty standards even though some of them are not even effective. 

Video producer Pauline Andreasa, 28, gave whitening products a go in her early twenties only to find out that it had no effect on her skin.

“I fell for the ‘fair and lovely’ advertisements. I become super obsessed with how to lighten my skin up by trying up most of the whitening products and even home remedies. Sadly, nothing worked,” she said.

Makeup artist Sakinah Maharani also said that more people are now beginning to embrace their natural skin color and starting to see how problematic skin-whitening products can be. 

“People are more critical towards whitening products today because they believe it’s unrealistic,” the 27-year-old said. “Perhaps the products do make you appear fairer but it doesn’t look natural at all.”

“Besides, more people are aware that some whitening products would use dangerous and abrasive ingredients, which can be bad for one’s skin,” she added. “Right now, in Southeast Asia and even the world, we have started to recognize that your skin color doesn’t define you, your actions do.”

Fair and Lovely products continue to sell in Malaysia but some are banned in Norway for allegedly containing toxic levels of mercury. 

The company has rebuked this, stating that it uses melanin suppressor niacinamide in its products, which is allowed under Malaysia’s health regulations. It also claimed that the offending products in Norway “could be counterfeit.”

More harm than meets the eye

Skin-whitening products have had adverse effects on consumers’ health. 

Nearly 200 beauty products have been banned by Malaysian authorities since 2008 for containing unhealthy levels of mercury and other toxic ingredients such as hydroquinone – a bleaching agent – and tretinoin. Malaysia only allows products to contain up to 1 parts per million, or ppm, of mercury – a popular ingredient that has skin-lightening properties. This is in line with the standard set by the World Health Organization. 

Coconuts KL recently spoke to one victim who suffered from major skin irritation after using a mercury-tainted whitening product from the Philippines.

“I’ve used tons of whitening products before but only this one had a bad reaction. It gave me pretty bad rashes,” undergraduate Vanessa Mae Lim, 23, told Coconuts KL recently. 

The Selangor native shared with Coconuts KL a photo showing red spots that had spread across her neck and chin after using the Goreebrand of skin-whitening products in 2018. She managed to purchase them from the Philippines.

“The brand is called Goree. I searched more about it and it turns out it’s covered on the news in the Philippines that they had mercury in their ingredients’ list, so many people experienced sort of the same thing or worse,” she said. Fortunately, Lim treated it with a topical steroid cream and the rash “went away after a couple of weeks.”

The Philippines’ Food and Drug Administration previously issued warnings about the Filipino brand and even found the “Whitening Beauty Anti-ageing Spots Pimples Removing Cream” to contain mercury 100,000 times more than what was permitted. 

The effects of mercury are not only skin deep. According to Health Director-General Noor Hisham Abdullah in June, mercury could also affect internal organs such as the kidney. 

“Mercury is forbidden in cosmetics because it can be harmful to health. It can be absorbed into the body and cause damage to the kidneys and nervous system,” he said when addressing the ban of three beauty products containing mercury. 

‘Confident when I have fair skin’

Nevertheless, cutting back on skin-whitening products in the market remains an uphill battle in Malaysia.

One bad experience did not deter Kuala Lumpur native Farah Nurdiana from continuing to incorporate skin-whitening products into her beauty routine. The 24-year-old has been using such products since she was in primary school and once had her face swollen after using a particular cream.

“I bought a ‘day and night cream’ from a local brand, that had mercury in it, and my face became so swollen,” she said. For now, she sticks to drugstore brands like Hada Labo, Nano White, and Dr Morita, and advises those who want to use whitening products to do their research before making purchases.

“Please don’t simply buy skincare. Do your research on what ingredients are in the product, and get to know your skin type to make sure it is compatible with the product,” she said.

While Farah admits that such products and the ads promoting them could alienate those who are not born with fairer skin, she still supports skin-whitening products as they help her boost her self-confidence.  

“Beauty is more than just one’s physical appearance. I think ads like ‘Fair and Lovely’ have unwittingly sent us a message that being fair is the norm,” the content creator said. “This can make people who are not naturally fair feel alienated and compelled to buy whitening products.”

She later added: “I find that I am more confident when I have fair skin. My skin doesn’t appear dull and I feel confident enough to speak to people.”

Rape, abuses in palm oil fields linked to top beauty brands Malaysia boss wife Indonesia AP

With his hand clamped tightly over her mouth, she could not scream, the 16-year-old girl recalls – and no one was around to hear her anyway. She describes how her boss raped her amid the tall trees on an Indonesian palm oil plantation that feeds into some of the world’s best-known cosmetic brands. He then put an ax to her throat and warned her: Do not tell.

At another plantation, a woman named Ola complains of fevers, coughing and nose bleeds after years of spraying dangerous pesticides with no protective gear. Making just $2 a day, with no health benefits, she can’t afford to see a doctor.

Hundreds of miles away, Ita, a young wife mourns the two babies she lost in the third trimester. She regularly lugged loads several times her weight throughout both pregnancies, fearing she would be fired if she did not.

These are the invisible women of the palm oil industry, among the millions of daughters, mothers and grandmothers who toil on vast plantations across Indonesia and neighboring Malaysia which together produce 85 percent of the world’s most versatile vegetable oil.

Palm oil is found in everything from potato chips and pills to pet food, and also ends up in the supply chains of some of the biggest names in the $530 billion beauty business, including L’Oréal, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Avon and Johnson & Johnson, helping women around the world feel pampered and beautiful.

The Associated Press conducted the first comprehensive investigation focusing on the brutal treatment of women in the production of palm oil, including the hidden scourge of sexual abuse, ranging from verbal harassment and threats to rape. It’s part of a larger in-depth look at the industry that exposed widespread abuses in the two countries, including human trafficking, child labor and outright slavery.

Women are burdened with some of the industry’s most difficult and dangerous jobs, spending hours waist-deep in water tainted by chemical runoff and carrying loads so heavy that, over time, their wombs can collapse and protrude. Many are hired by subcontractors on a day-to-day basis without benefits, performing the same jobs for the same companies for years – even decades. They often work without pay to help their husbands meet otherwise impossible daily quotas.

“Almost every plantation has problems related to labor,” said Hotler Parsaoran of the Indonesian nonprofit group Sawit Watch, which has conducted extensive investigations into abuses in the palm oil sector. “But the conditions of female workers are far worse than men.”

Parsaoran said it’s the responsibility of governments, growers, big multinational buyers and banks that help finance plantation expansion to tackle issues related to palm oil, which is listed under more than 200 ingredient names and contained in nearly three out of four personal-care products – everything from mascara and bubble bath to anti-wrinkle creams.

The AP interviewed more than three dozen women and girls from at least 12 companies across Indonesia and Malaysia. Because previous reports have resulted in retaliation against workers, they are being identified only by partial names or nicknames. They met with female AP reporters secretly within their barracks or at hotels, coffee shops or churches, sometimes late at night, usually with no men present so they could speak openly.

The Malaysian government said it had received no reports about rapes on plantations, but Indonesia acknowledged physical and sexual abuse appears to be a growing problem, with most victims afraid to speak out. Still, the AP was able to corroborate a number of the women’s stories by reviewing police reports, legal documents, complaints filed with union representatives and local media accounts.

Reporters also interviewed nearly 200 other workers, activists, government officials and lawyers, including some who helped trapped girls and women escape, who confirmed that abuses regularly occur.

Indonesia is the world’s biggest palm oil producer, with an estimated 7.6 million women working in its fields, about half the total workforce, according to the female empowerment ministry. In much-smaller Malaysia, the figures are harder to nail down due to the large number of foreign migrants working off the books.

In both countries, the AP found generations of women from the same families who have served as part of the industry’s backbone. Some started working as children alongside their parents, gathering loose kernels and clearing brush from the trees with machetes, never learning to read or write.

And others, like a woman who gave the name Indra, dropped out of school as teenagers. She took a job at Malaysia’s Sime Darby Plantations, one of the world’s biggest palm oil companies. Years later, she says her boss started harassing her, saying things like “Come sleep with me. I will give you a baby.” He would lurk behind her in the fields, even when she went to the bathroom.

Now 27, Indra dreams of leaving, but it’s hard to build another life with no education and no other skills. Women in her family have worked on the same Malaysian plantation since her great-grandmother left India as a baby in the early 1900s. Like many laborers in both countries, they can’t afford to give up the company’s basic subsidized housing, which often consists of rows of dilapidated shacks without running water.

That ensures the generational cycle endures, maintaining a cheap, built-in workforce.

“I feel it’s already normal,” Indra said. “From birth until now, I am still on a plantation.”

Out of sight, hidden by a sea of palms, women have worked on plantations since European colonizers brought the first trees from West Africa more than a century ago. As punishment in Indonesia back then, some so-called female “coolies” were bound to posts outside the boss’ house with finely ground chili pepper rubbed into their vaginas.

As the decades passed, palm oil became an essential ingredient for the food industry, which saw it as a substitute for unhealthy trans fats. And cosmetic companies, which were shifting away from animal- or petroleum-based ingredients, were captivated by its miracle properties: It foams in toothpaste and shaving gel, moisturizes soaps and lathers in shampoo.

New workers are constantly needed to meet the relentless demand, which has quadrupled in the last 20 years alone. Women in Indonesia are often “casual” workers – hired day to day, with their jobs and pay never guaranteed. Men receive nearly all the full-time permanent positions, harvesting the heavy, spiky fruit bunches and working in processing mills.

On almost every plantation, men also are the supervisors, opening the door for sexual harassment and abuse.

The 16-year-old girl who described being raped by her boss – a man old enough to be her grandfather – started working on the plantation at age 6 to help her family make ends meet.

The day she was attacked in 2017, she said the boss took her to a remote part of the estate, where her job was to ferry wheelbarrows laden with the bright orange palm oil fruits he hacked from the trees. Suddenly, she said, he grabbed her arm and started pawing her breasts, throwing her to the jungle floor. Afterward, she said, he held the ax to her throat.

“He threatened to kill me,” she said softly. “He threatened to kill my whole family.”

Then, she said, he stood up and spit on her.

Nine months later, after she says he raped her four more times, she sat by a wrinkled 2-week-old boy. She made no effort to comfort him when he cried, struggling to even look at his face.

The family filed a report with police, but the complaint was dropped, citing lack of evidence.

“I want him to be punished,” the girl said after a long silence. “I want him to be arrested and punished because he didn’t care about the baby … he didn’t take any responsibility.”

The AP heard about similar incidents on plantations big and small in both countries. Union representatives, health workers, government officials and lawyers said some of the worst examples they encountered involved gang rapes and children as young as 12 being taken into the fields and sexually assaulted by plantation foremen.

One example involved an Indonesian teen who was trafficked to Malaysia as a sex slave, where she was passed between drunk palm oil workers living under plastic tarps in the jungle, eventually escaping ravaged by chlamydia. And in a rare high-profile case that sparked outrage last year, a female preacher working at a Christian church inside an Indonesian estate was tied up among the trees, sexually assaulted by two workers and then strangled. The men were sentenced to life in prison.

While Indonesia has laws in place to protect women from abuse and discrimination, Rafail Walangitan of the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection said he was aware of many problems identified by the AP on palm oil plantations, including child labor and sexual harassment.

“We have to work hard on this,” he said, noting the government still has a long way to go.

Malaysia’s Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development said it hadn’t received complaints about the treatment of women laborers so had no comment. And Nageeb Wahab, head of the Malaysian Palm Oil Association, said workers are covered by the country’s labor laws, with the ability to file grievances.

Those familiar with the complexities of plantation life say the subject of sexual abuse has never drawn much attention and that female workers often believe little can be done about it.

“They are thinking it happens everywhere, so there’s nothing to complain about,” said Saurlin Siagan, an Indonesian activist and researcher.

Many families living on plantations struggle to earn enough to cover basic costs, like electricity and rice. Desperate women are sometimes coerced into using their bodies to pay back loans from supervisors or other workers. And younger females, especially those considered attractive, occasionally are given less demanding jobs like cleaning the boss’ house, with sex expected in exchange.

In the few cases where victims do speak out, companies often don’t take action or police charges are either dropped or not filed because it usually comes down to the accuser’s word against the man’s.

“The location of palm oil plantations makes them an ideal crime scene for rape,” said Aini Fitri, an Indonesian official from the government’s women and children’s office in West Kalimantan province. “It could be dangerous in the darkness for people, especially for women, but also because it is so quiet and remote. So even in the middle of the day, the crime can happen.”

Many beauty and personal goods companies have largely remained silent when it comes to the plight of female workers, but it’s not due to lack of knowledge.

A powerful global industry group, the Consumer Goods Forum, published a 2018 report alerting the network’s 400 CEOs that women on plantations were exposed to dangerous chemicals and “subject to the worst conditions among all palm oil workers.” It also noted that a few local groups had cited examples of women being forced to provide sex to secure or keep jobs, but said few workers were willing to discuss the sensitive issue.

Even so, almost all of the pressure aimed at palm oil companies has focused on land grabs, the destruction of rainforests and the killing of endangered species such as orangutans.

Those concerns led to the 2004 formation of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, an association that promotes and certifies ethical production, including provisions to safeguard laborers. Its members include growers, buyers, traders and environmental watchdogs. But of the nearly 100 grievances lodged in Indonesia and Malaysia in the last decade, most have not focused on labor until recently. And women are almost never mentioned.

The AP reached out to representatives affiliated with every cosmetic and personal goods maker mentioned in this story. Some didn’t comment, but most defended their use of palm oil and its derivatives, with many attempting to show how little they use compared to the roughly 80 million tons produced annually worldwide. Others said they were working with local nonprofits, pointed to pledges on their websites about commitments to sustainability and human rights, or noted efforts to be transparent about the processing mills in their supply chains.

But the AP found that labor abuses regularly occur industrywide, even from mills that source from plantations bearing the RSPO’s green palm stamp.

That includes Indonesian companies like London Sumatra, which withdrew from the RSPO last year after the association cited it for a series of labor abuses. London Sumatra told the AP that it adheres to labor laws and takes “the health of our workers very seriously.”

In some cases, women working at various palm oil companies illegally said they were ordered to hide in the jungle when sustainability auditors arrived, while others were told to smile if they encountered any visitors.

The AP used U.S. Customs records, product ingredient lists and the most recently published data from producers, traders and buyers to link the laborers’ palm oil and its derivatives from the mills that process it to the Western brands’ supply chains – including some that source from mills fed by plantations where women said they were raped and young girls toiled in the fields.

Abuses also were linked to product lines sought out by conscientious consumers like Tom’s of Maine and Kiehl’s, through the supply chains of their giant parent companies Colgate-Palmolive and L’Oréal. And Bath & Body Works was connected through its main supplier, Cargill, one of the world’s biggest palm oil traders.

Coty Inc., which owns global staples like CoverGirl and is tapping into partnerships with Gen Z newcomers like Kylie Cosmetics, did not respond to multiple AP calls and emails. And Estee Lauder Companies Inc., owner of Clinique, Lancome and Aveda, acknowledged struggling with traceability issues in its RSPO filing. When asked by AP whether specific products used palm oil or its derivatives, there was no response.

Both companies, along with Shiseido and Clorox, which owns Burt’s Bees Inc., keep the names of their mills and suppliers secret. Clorox said it would raise the allegations of abuses with its suppliers, calling AP’s findings “incredibly disturbing.”

Johnson & Johnson makes its mill list public, but refused to say whether its iconic baby lotion contains palm oil derivatives.

One case uncovered by the AP involved a widow named Maria who said her supervisor began sexually harassing her when she first started working at a Malaysian-owned company in Indonesia. She said she successfully fought off his advances until she returned home one night to find him inside, waiting for her.

“I tried to remind him about his wife and his children in the village, but he hugged me tighter while pulling my pants down. Then he raped me,” she said. “After that, he left me. But almost two hours later, he came back and raped me a second time.”

She said she stayed quiet at first because he threatened her life and her job. But the attacks continued, she said, including once when he jumped her while she was working in the field “crushing me so that I couldn’t move.”

That time, she said, she kept a semen-filled tissue as evidence. She later confronted the man and his wife and also complained to company and union officials. She attempted to file a police report, but instead was directed to seek compensation directly from the man, a union representative said. She was never paid and ended up moving to another plantation to get away from the boss, who has since quit.

Rosita Nengsih, the director of the Women, Children and Family Legal Aid Institution in the Indonesian province of West Kalimantan, said most victims are reluctant to report rapes to authorities, adding it’s typical to settle complaints through so-called “peace solutions” in which the victim’s family may be paid off. Sometimes parents force their daughter to marry her rapist to lessen the shame, often after pregnancy occurs.

The province where Nengsih works borders Malaysia on the island of Borneo, which is shared by the two countries. It is a porous corridor for Indonesian workers, including women and young girls hoping to earn enough in the wealthier neighboring country to pull themselves out of poverty. Many travel there illegally, sometimes falsifying documents or lying about their ages, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation.

Nengsih recalled a case involving two Indonesian girls as young as 13 who were working on a Malaysian plantation with their parents and said they were repeatedly raped by the same supervisor until both became pregnant four months apart.

“Nothing happened to the foreman,” she said. “He’s still free.”

The conditions these workers endure stand in stark contrast to female empowerment messages promoted by industry leaders such as L’Oréal, one of the world’s top cosmetic companies, and Unilever, one of the biggest palm oil buyers for consumer goods, which sources from more than 1,500 mills.

As Unilever’s popular soap brand proclaims: “Dove believes that beauty is for everyone.” And L’Oréal says it is working to stamp out sexual harassment “because we are all worth it.”

In a global industry expected to reach $800 billion within the next five years, cosmetic legacy brands – together with fast-growing celebrity and niche startups – proudly tout $300 anti-wrinkle creams or glittery eyeshadows as sustainable and free of labor abuses, with little or no evidence.

In response, L’Oréal said it “has put particular emphasis on supporting and empowering women, who are the first victims of many of the social and environmental challenges our world faces.” Unilever said progress needs to be made more quickly, but that “the safety of women in global agricultural supply chains … including in the palm oil industry, remains a key concern.”

The women in Southeast Asia’s rugged, steamy plantations are a world away. Some haul tanks of toxic chemicals on their backs weighing more than 13 kilograms (30 pounds), dispensing 80 gallons each day – enough to fill a bathtub.

“Our lives are so hard,” said Ola, who has been employed as a day worker in Indonesia for 10 years and wakes each day aching from repeatedly lifting heavy loads. “After spraying, my nose bleeds occasionally. I think it’s connected to the pesticide.”

She doesn’t wear a mask because it’s too hot to breathe. She said the company doesn’t provide medical care to casual workers, and she has no money for a doctor.

Paraquat, one of the chemicals Ola and others spray, has been banned by the European Union and many other countries over possible links to a wide range of health issues, including an increased chance of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in popular weedkiller Roundup, also is commonly used. Roundup’s parent company, Bayer, agreed earlier this year to pay more than $10 billion to end tens of thousands of lawsuits filed in the U.S. alleging the chemical caused serious illnesses, including cancer.

Some palm oil workers who use agrochemicals daily showed the AP raw webbing between their fingers and toes, along with destroyed nails. Others had milky or red eyes and complained of dizzy spells, trouble breathing and blurry vision. Activists reported that some totally lost their sight.

The workers said pesticides routinely blow back into their faces, splash onto their backs and seep into the sweaty skin on their stomachs.

“If the liquid shakes and spills out, it’s also running into my private area. Almost all women are suffering the same itching and burning,” said Marodot, whose five children also work to help their father meet his daily target. “I have to keep going until I finish working, and then clean it up with water. There’s too many men around.”

She said she has trouble seeing, and her face is dark and cracked from years in the sun.

When handed a $20 lipstick by a journalist, a worker named Defrida was told it contained palm oil. She twisted the silver case and stared at the glistening pink stick – first with intrigue, then with disgust.

Noting she would have to spray pesticide on 30 acres of rough jungle terrain just to afford a single tube, she pleaded with women who buy products containing palm oil: “Oh, my God!” she said. “Please pay attention to our lives.”

She, along with nearly all the women interviewed, complained of pelvic pain and explained how almost every phase of their reproductive health is affected.

Some women are forced to undergo humiliating checks to prove they are bleeding in order to take leave during their periods.

Others suffering from collapsed uteruses – caused by the weakening of the pelvic floor from repeatedly squatting and carrying overweight loads – create makeshift braces by tightly wrapping scarves or old motorbike tire tubes around their mid-sections. Some workers described the pain as so agonizing that they could find relief only by lying on their backs with their legs in the air.

Despite a national health care program launched by the Indonesian government, many palm oil workers still don’t have access to medical services and, even when basic care is available, it typically is not extended to female day workers. The nearest clinics can be more than a day’s drive by motorbike, so most workers just use aspirin, balms or home remedies when they’re sick.

Still, they are better off in many ways than migrant women working without papers in Malaysia, mostly in the bordering states of Sarawak and Sabah on the island of Borneo.

The AP confirmed a horrific story involving a pregnant Indonesian woman who escaped captivity on a Malaysian estate owned by state-run Felda, one of the world’s biggest palm oil companies. She gave birth in the jungle and foraged for food before finally being rescued. In September, U.S. Customs and Border Protection banned all palm oil imports from FGV Holdings Berhad, which is closely affiliated with Felda, after finding indications of child and forced labor and other abuses on its plantations.

Even on a day-to-day basis in Malaysia, migrant women fear arrest and deportation. Many rarely leave their plantations, even to give birth, at times risking their own lives and their babies’. And those who do venture out during emergencies can be held for weeks at the hospital until family members can collect enough money to pay exorbitant rates.

At one government facility in a border town, a menu of maternity ward prices was posted on a blue bulletin board. A natural birth costs foreign migrants about $630 – several times more than it would cost a Malaysian citizen, an amount that could take some women at least a year to pay back.

And that’s if they’re able to conceive and carry their babies to full term.

Groups of women interviewed by the AP in Indonesia wondered whether their arduous jobs, combined with the chemicals they handle and breathe, caused their infertility, miscarriages and stillbirths.

Ita was among those who said her work affected her ability to deliver healthy babies. She said she hid two pregnancies from her boss, knowing she likely wouldn’t be called for daily work otherwise. With two children already at home to feed, she had no choice but to keep working for $5 a day. In contrast, a permanent full-time female worker is entitled to three months of paid maternity leave.

Every day, as her belly grew, Ita said she continued to carry back-breaking loads over acres of fields, spreading 400 kilograms (880 pounds) of fertilizer – nearly a half-ton – over the course of a day. She lost both babies in her third trimester and, with no health insurance, was left with medical bills she couldn’t pay.

“The first time I miscarried, and the doctor had to pull the baby out,” said Ita, who has worked on the plantation alongside her mother since the age of 15. “The second time, I gave birth at seven months and it was in critical condition, and they put it in an incubator. It died after 30 hours.

“I kept working,” she said. “I never stopped after the baby died.”

Malaysia from Yekaterinburg

Malaysia is an exotic country, rich in sights, with beautiful nature, delicious cuisine, the charm of noisy Oriental bazaars, attracts tourists from all over the world.Nevertheless, Malaysia is still truly exotic, not spoiled by a large influx of tourists. Malaysia is a mixture of everything: skyscrapers and national temples, modernity and superstition. This is a Muslim country, but exactly half of the local residents live in it. Therefore, the system of laws is different here: European girls and Chinese women can safely wear mini, for a Muslim girl this is unacceptable and entails punishment. That is, depending on your religion, it depends on what law you should live.

Russian citizens do not need a visa to visit Malaysia (for a period of stay up to 30 days).

Malaysia is also one of the safest countries in Southeast Asia.

A tour to Malaysia from Yekaterinburg will be a journey that will remain in your memory for a long time.

Kuala Lumpur

The capital of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur. The undisputed symbol of Kuala Lumpur is the world’s tallest twin towers, Petronas.

These beautiful shining rockets like soaring into the sky are the real adornment of Kuala Lumpur.Many people tend to get to Kuala Lumpur just to look at the Petronas Twin Tower’s. This is a real city within a city with many shops, a philharmonic hall, a science center and a giant aquarium where you can swim with sharks. Climbing one of the towers is a mandatory program when visiting Kuala Lumpur, but you need to take into account that you will have to stand in line, since there are always a lot of people who want to see the city from above.

At the height of the 41st floor, the towers are connected by a sky bridge, which was specially built in case of emergency evacuation from one tower to another, for example, in the event of a fire.Being at such a height and having a full view of the entire city, it is perfectly visible that Kuala Lumpur has a rather dense development, but nevertheless, it is a very green city.

The Discovery Center deserves special attention, where people talk about science in a playful way. Here you can experience such things as earthquakes, see how a tornado is formed, visit the epicenter of a hurricane, catch a hologram with your hand, and much more. Whole classes of Malay schoolchildren are brought here on excursions.If you are planning a trip to Malaysia with children, we recommend that you plan a visit to this center. For adults, a visit here will also be fascinating.

Noteworthy is the temple in the Batu cave. The journey from the city center by metro will take about 20 minutes. Next, you have to overcome a steep staircase of 272 steps, during the ascent, many small monkeys do not let you get bored for a minute. The caves are huge, consisting of several rooms with a ceiling height of 100 meters, with natural windows on the ceiling, from where daylight comes.

In terms of nightlife, Kuala Lumpur is one of the quietest capitals in the world.

And in and around Kuala Lumpur itself there are many attractions that are worth visiting. There are many parks that should not be ignored either: “orchids”, “deer”, “butterflies”. Also, it is here that the largest colony in the world – fireflies – lives! This is an unforgettable and very beautiful evening excursion, you are sailing on a boat, and around hundreds of little lights singing harmoniously….

Langkawi


One of the most popular resorts in Malaysia, cleaning the sea, white sand … The sand is considered curative here, it will be useful for rheumatism, osteochondrosis and bronchitis.The best season for a holiday in Langkawa is from November to May. In addition to the traditional beach holiday, here you can go diving, play golf, and also a rich excursion program will not let you get bored. A lot of hotels not every taste and wallet

.

The flight from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi will take only 55 minutes.

Also, a vacation in Langkawi can be conveniently combined with a vacation in Singapore , a flight from Singapore to Langkawi takes just over an hour.

Borneo Only 26% of this island belongs to the Malays, but nevertheless, in such a “small area” you can find your own style of recreation.If a developed infrastructure is a defining moment for you, then you should pay attention to the state of Sabah. If the priority is the secluded style of recreation, then it is better to choose – Sarawak with its original way of life.

Beaches in Borneo are snow-white, sand is fine. The coral islands provide protection from the waves. Hotels of the 4 * and 5 * categories, as a rule, have their own beaches.

Borneo – in addition to an ideal beach holiday, this is also an opportunity to plunge into virgin nature, live in a real jungle, and feel like a pioneer.Several thousand plants, hundreds of bird and reptile species, dozens of primate species are unique and are found only in Borneo. These are great opportunities for diving and many nature and recreational excursions.

Penang

Karelin, Shoigu and Lavrov opened the work of the federal headquarters of public support for United Russia

The largest public organizations of Russia, popular artists and athletes, entrepreneurs, leading doctors and teachers, experts and leaders of public opinion have joined in its work.

Regional headquarters of United Russia support were also opened throughout the country.

They include leaders of public opinion in the regions, representatives of the ONF, the Federation of Trade Unions, various non-profit associations of youth, veterans, disabled people and large families.

Many events are held in the regions – round tables, webinars, meetings with experts, receptions of citizens, at which the collection of proposals for the popular program of the party also continues.

At the suggestion of Vladimir Putin at the United Russia congress, Sergei Shoigu, Sergei Lavrov, head physician of the Kommunarka hospital Denis Protsenko, ONF co-chairman Yelena Shmeleva and children’s ombudsman Anna Kuznetsova were included in the top five of the party’s list.

“Forming a team of trust, we have always relied on public organizations. This is exactly what we are planning to do now, ”said Alexander Karelin.

According to him, the work of the headquarters makes it possible to share experience and “help our fellow citizens to collect proposals for a national program.”

Community activists represent over 30 non-profit organizations. Among them are the All-Russian Popular Front, the We Are Together and Medical Volunteers movements, the Knowledge Society, the Memory of Generations Foundation, the Support of Russia, the All-Russian Society for the Protection of Historical and Cultural Monuments, the ANO for the development of environmental , social and patriotic projects “Garden of Memory” and many others.

Head of the federal headquarters Hero of Russia Alexander Karelin.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu noted that United Russia bears a great burden of responsibility.

“We need to maintain the pace, bring to life new projects that will benefit the country. Most of the national projects are woven from the proposals that were formed in the “United Russia”. This is a huge, important and painstaking work, ”said the Minister of Defense.

According to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign policy, which is determined by the president, has set itself the goal of creating maximum conditions for ensuring security, socio-economic development of the country and the well-being of citizens.

“The successes achieved are explained by close coordination with civil society, broad support from, first of all, United Russia for our foreign policy,” Lavrov stressed.

Head of the Sirius Center Elena Shmeleva drew attention to the fact that the headquarters can become a platform for expert dialogue with the population.

According to Shmeleva, United Russia has joined in the complex solution of the problems of upbringing and education and is starting to work for generations to come.

Large-scale transformations await the Russian education system.

They will help children not only to sit at their desks, but to engage in science, art, culture, sports, added the head of Sirius.

A reboot is also necessary for the healthcare system.

“United Russia” is discussing proposals for the program in the field of medicine with doctors from the “land”, the head doctor of the hospital in Kommunarka Denis Protsenko informed the headquarters.

The first certificates of the proxies of the headquarters of public support of United Russia were received by the President of the League of Nation’s Health Leo Bokeria, the chairman of the Medical Volunteers movement Maria Yakunchikova, the chairman of the Association for the Protection of the Family Maria Filina, film director Karen Shakhnazarov, actor Vladimir Mashkov and others …

Ombudsman for the Rights of the Child in Russia Anna Kuznetsova expressed confidence that the headquarters will be filled with effective ideas.

“It is important to build a dialogue. This helps to see how the instructions of the President actually work, these or those norms are implemented – not only in beautiful reports, ”Kuznetsova said.

90,000 What’s wrong with the Anonymous hackers who disappeared a few years ago

With just one tweet, Elon Musk can collapse the rate of cryptocurrencies or bring them out of a protracted peak.He demonstrated this in June when he posted a broken heart emoji next to the #Bitcoin hashtag on his Twitter. This led to a fall in the bitcoin rate by more than 6%. The reaction to this came from where they did not expect. Musk was contacted by Anonymous. They decided to defend the “millions of retail investors” who hoped that profits from cryptocurrencies would improve their lives.

“While hardworking people are dashed by your public hysteria, you continue to mock them with memes while in one of your mansions.You may consider yourself the smartest person, but now you have met your equal. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We’re going, ” – reads the appeal of the anonymous masked man in the video, which has so far gained more than 2.6 million views on YouTube. The mask is accused of a bunch of sins, which, according to the authors of the video, his devoted adherents do not notice.

This is a kind of declaration of war on Elon Musk. The hacker group Anonymous took over the role of a decentralized digital Robin Hood a decade and a half ago, fighting injustice against corporations and politicians.

The mask worn in their videos by Anonymous representatives has long gone wild. For the first time, supporters of hackers spotted her during protests against the Church of Scientology in 2008, which demanded that an interview with Tom Cruise be removed from the network. They got inspiration from the film “V” for Vendetta, released a couple of years earlier, which was banned from distribution in Belarus.

The Guy Fawkes mask at the end of the 2000s and the beginning of the new decade became first a symbol of protests, and then a real brand.Rubies Costume Company, which made these masks under license, produced about 100 thousand pieces a year. The royalties went to Warner Bros. – one of the largest US companies. Anonymous indirectly promoted this product to the masses.

Anonymous was talked about a lot, their actions and attacks were covered in the media, their activities were shrouded in an aura of romanticism and mystery, the omnipotent group was credited with the loudest cybercrimes in the world. This went on for a dozen years – and then the virtual Robin Hoods seemed to disappear somewhere.

Nose flick

For the first time, people started talking seriously about the association, which arose on anonymous forums, in 2008. Anonymous then launched a massive campaign against the Church of Scientology. The DDoS attack on the site was not limited to real protests.

For the Internet at that time, the figure of a hacker was too romanticized. The “anonymous” called themselves defenders of the Internet from the encroachments of the government and corporations, and therefore all their actions received wide publicity.However, at first these attacks were not so impressive. In June 2008, a hip-hopper forum was attacked: first, it was flooded by anonymous users, and after the forum was shut down, a DDoS attack was launched on the site. The resource worked intermittently – all due to the fact that site members allowed themselves to insult Anonymous.

Another victim turned out to be the site of a teenager who ran the “Club without swearing”. The site promoted the rejection of profanity. The teenager’s home address, phone number and other personal information leaked online.They sent him fake pizza and pornography, and called him with insults. This did not appeal to digital activism.

After that, there were attacks on the website of the Prime Minister of Australia (it was put down for about an hour) and other government agencies, raids on the pages of various organizations in social networks, DDoS attacks on the websites of copyright holders who fought against piracy on the network. But all these were actions that did not cause noticeable damage – they could be described as minor difficulties.

This is all a consequence of Anonymous’s amorphous structure. And it was impossible to call it a structure: anyone could join the “anonymous”.

“The fact that you call yourself that automatically means that you are Anonymous. That’s how little someone can control this brand, “ – said in a comment for ABC Greg Hausch, who was once one of the” anonymous “.

Disunity led to the fact that small groups of activists united at various sites and communicated with each other, while there could not be any large-scale associations.There was also no specific goal – only a manifesto against censorship on the Internet by the state and copyright holders, for the free flow of information and piracy as a form of freedom. What one group, Anonymous, did, was automatically extended to the entire brand, so there were enough dissatisfied with the actions of “anonymous” in the movement itself.

Loud statement

In December 2010, the WikiLeaks website with archives of documents, including secret diplomatic correspondence of US officials, came under serious pressure.Anonymous have announced their support for the resource. They launched attacks on Amazon, PayPal, Mastercard, Visa, which were involved in pressure on WikiLeaks and refused to service the site. Even the governments of Zimbabwe and Tunisia got it, which censored access to it.

A couple of months later, HBGary Federal announced that it had infiltrated Anonymous and revealed the identities of some of its members. This was followed by the hacking of the company’s website and replacing the main page with a message that it was better not to contact Anonymous, and the hacking was an act of self-defense.Anonymous took control of the company’s e-mail, siphoned off 68,000 emails, deleted some files and turned off the telephone system. The head of the company was taken away from his Twitter account and posted his home address on the network.

In just one year, the “anonymous” managed to annoy the Spanish police, Sony Corporation, the governments of India, Malaysia, Brazil, Turkey, Australia, Syria and many others. The hacktivists began to seriously bother the authorities, who started hunting them. The importance of Anonymous was noted not only by law enforcement officers, but also by Time, which in 2012 included this decentralized group in the list of the 100 most influential people on the planet.

The next two years and months did not pass without another attack by “anonymous” on any website of the government, law enforcement or corporation. They stole correspondence, personal data of users, defaced sites and disabled them for a short time. We also made unconditionally useful shares. On the darknet, for example, child pornography sites were hacked and user data was leaked.

What ended Anonymous?

But Anonymous also got their fair share of arrests.US federal agencies were determined to crack down on them, and several hackers associated with the group were detained in various countries.

In 2011, the FBI arrested 16 people who were suspected of involvement in the group. In particular, they were accused of hacking the site of the electronic payment system PayPal, which refused to transfer money to WikiLeaks accounts. At the same time, three Spaniards were detained by the local police for attacks on Sony and banks, 32 people were arrested in Turkey on similar charges.

The following year, arrests took place in Great Britain, Ireland, Italy. Under the coordination of Interpol, 25 hackers were arrested in Argentina, Chile and Colombia, two servers and a bunch of electronic equipment were seized.

Arrests accompanied Anonymous’s activities at all times. They were large-scale and happened with enviable regularity. However, the activity of the movement did not subside. This global mechanism could only self-destruct. This, in principle, was similar to the decline of the group.

Expert Jason Falter believes that Donald Trump has become a bone of contention among Anonymous followers.Allegedly, half were in favor of smearing him on the Internet and destroying his electoral campaign, while the other believed that Trump brought anarchy into American politics.

“It was a hurricane that could wreak havoc in the corruption process,” – the expert believes. Trump shattered the collective mind of Anonymous, and people began to disperse in their own individual ways. This theory is slender, if only because after the American elections in 2016, Anonymous’s activity dwindled.If a couple of years before that, not a month had passed without their next statement or attack, then after 2016 the stormy river dried up to local streams.

Still, one should not underestimate the work of law enforcement officers who managed to find “anonymous” persons involved in cyberattacks all over the world. And control over the network has increased significantly over the past ten years. It is getting harder and harder to remain anonymous.

Are Anonymous Returning?

For four long years, the word Anonymous hardly appeared in the news.Digital Robin Hoods went out of style, burned out. More often than not, news of hacks boiled down to blackmail and ransom demands in exchange for hiding the stolen data. High and black technologies were no longer used as a form of activism and a way to make some kind of loud public statement.

But in February 2020, unknown persons who called themselves Anonymous hackers hacked the UN website and posted on it the page of Taiwan, a country that has lost its place in the UN since 1971 with the entry of communist China.This was followed in May by Anonymous’s appeal to the Minneapolis Police Department, whose officers were involved in the death of George Floyd. After this incident, the Black Lives Matter movement erupted in the United States for months. “We will reveal your crimes to the world. We are legion. We do not forgive. We don’t forget. Wait for us, – says in the video a man with a changed voice and a Guy Fawkes mask.

This was followed by an attack on a police website, and a few weeks later, a man who called himself “anonymous” leaked hundreds of gigabytes of internal police files from more than 200 US agencies to the network.

Does this mean Anonymous is back? It is hard to say. In Brazil last year, hackers released personal information about the president, his family, and the government. This was followed by an attack on the Ugandan police website. Some activity was recorded in Malaysia.

The latest video from people who call themselves the Anonymous hacker group and threaten Elon Musk with trouble looks like an attempt to play on nostalgia and revive the old brand, to attract new enthusiasts to the righteous struggle for Internet freedom.But now this is not a fight against censorship or corporations, but for the right of small investors to make money on the speculative nature of cryptocurrencies. So far, Anonymous is getting involved in the war for absolutely different values ​​that worried their predecessors a dozen years ago.

90,000 Early marriages: pros and cons

Cameron Diaz was in no hurry with the wedding until she was 42 years old, Britney Spears already by the age of 23 managed to say the cherished “yes” twice, and her younger sister Jamie Lynn went down the aisle at 16 – earlier than many graduate from school.However, even such haste is not impressive when you remember the age at which you got married in the past – in past centuries, marriage of 12-14-year-old girls was considered commonplace.

In the modern world, an early marriage is considered to be concluded before adulthood – in Russia and most European countries it is 18 years, in some states of the USA and Malaysia – 21 years, and, for example, in Cuba and Egypt – 16. In the everyday sense, “early ”Is often called an alliance frivolously concluded by young people who do not have both an independent material base and life experience.Of course, it is difficult to say for sure which marriages are more reliable and correct – early or between adults, the number of divorces is significant in both cases. The ideal option is for the spouses to more or less imagine both the pros and cons of their choice before the wedding.

In the question “early marriages: pros and cons”, the arguments can be as follows:

Wedding

+

Of course, marriage is to be together in sorrow, and in joy, in wealth, and in poverty, in sorrow, and in health… But many, especially young girls, think little about responsibility in the role of wife and mother, about the obligatory compromises, about the possible difficulties of living together – in a word, about the everyday life of marriage. For many, marriage is primarily an opportunity to be a princess and the center of everyone’s attention at a big celebration. Therefore, the joy of trying on a fabulous dress when you are still young and beautiful, getting beautiful photographs as a keepsake and remembering yourself as a queen is, no joke, but a big plus that an “adult” marriage can be deprived of – for example, like many ordinary mortals, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie did not call guests to legitimize their ten-year civil union.

There is nothing criminal about wanting to have a beautiful wedding. It’s bad when this is the only reason for marriage. Then an unpleasant, but common embarrassment can happen – when the young decide to divorce a year later, and the loan taken to pay for the magnificent celebrations has not yet been closed even half. Therefore, if there is even the slightest doubt, then it is better to go for the trick – to play, for example, a make-believe wedding, as many domestic stars do, happily posting reports from island weddings in the intagram, alas, not considered legal on the territory of Russia.

Children

+

An important reason why many get married is children. Despite the fact that the age of pregnancy is growing all the time, and not only Hollywood stars become mothers after 40, many doctors still believe that the likelihood of having a healthy child is higher while the parents are young. And physically, a woman under 30 years old is often easier to endure pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and sleepless nights. Also an important plus of childbearing in youth is the opportunity to be a young mother of adult children and speak the same language with them.

First, in their youth, children are often unplanned – lovers get married because the girl is pregnant, and then it turns out that one or both parents are not at all ready for changes. Secondly, you want to have fun or, for example, build a career, but a child (or children, if a second is born after the first trace) does not give such an opportunity. So irritation, dissatisfaction, self-doubt can accumulate, which do not benefit not only the woman herself, but also her children.

Emotional closeness

+

At a young age, the severity of emotions is often higher than in mature. There are still no disappointments, resentments, experience, that everything ends, faith in love and the desire to see a soul mate in a loved one are still strong, without which life is impossible and incomplete. And if people are lucky enough to actually have a wedding for love, meet a loved one and go through family crises and life trials together, then over the years, the intimacy between spouses will become incredibly strong and real.

In youth, the acuteness of emotions often replaces their depth. People love not so much a partner as the opportunity for romantic experiences and vivid emotions. A common mistake people think of as love is a false resemblance and a sense of “one whole”. When the novelty dulls, and people begin to see a real partner, and not an imaginary image with which they were in love, a period of pretensions begins – “you are not like that”, “he has changed”, “I married someone else.
