"To be a V-man is to denounce sexual violence in all forms and to know how to cherish the vagina." (Dr Denis Mukwege)
Dr Denis Mukwege is regarded as the world's leading expert in female genital reconstructive surgery due to gang rape. He has performed tens of thousands of such operations. He offers free and complete care - physical, psychological, social and legal - to female victims of rape and war crimes in DRC. Also see here, here.
He is the godfather of V-Men, part of Eve Ensler's V-Day movement [where V = Victory, Valentine, Vagina] to end violence against women and girls.
In 2014 he was awarded the Sakharov Prize. In 2016 he was named by TIME as one of The 100 Most Influential People. In 2018 he and Nadia Murad were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 'their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict'.
"Rapes and violence based on gender will cease the day the men will understand the ugliness of sexual violence, the day they will understand that rapes and sexual violence simply degrade their masculinity." (Dr Denis Mukwege)
Pad Man is Arunachalam Muruganantham. He has broken the taboo of female menstruation in India. He invented a simple machine that makes cheap sanitary towels. He has revolutionised menstrual health for rural women in developing countries.
His 20 year mission has been made into a movie - see here, here. Read more here.
Trash Girl is Nadia Sparkes from Norwich, UK.
Despite being bullied for it, she picks up street litter. Watch here. Read here.
You could say she cleared out all the opposition!
Litter Lady is Elza, a Dutch artist who makes art from plastic litter that she finds on beaches. In this way, she highlights the sheer quantity of plastic pollution dumped in the sea. This includes sculptures and stop-motion films, which you can see here.
Superheroes and Superheroines often have precious artefacts or amazing gadgets (e.g. Thor's hammer). Here are some that could help save the world:-
