Kissing Cousins


A literary love affair has provoked big debate in Israel. 'Borderlife' tells the story of an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man who fall in love in New York.

India's new gaze


In India, women are coming to the fore in a profession that's long been dominated by men. Over the past few years, young female photographers have been invading this male stronghold, telling stories through their own lens. They're still a minority in this field, but that's gradually changing, thanks to a new generation of women making their mark with photography.

Pulse: Standing out


This week we're looking at people who stand out; people who are different from the rest and who are proud to be that way; like the young Iraqi Christian refugee; the Rwandan and Ugandan poets confronting society's silence through words and music.
