""Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me."

According to the National Crime Records Bureau, an average of five women were raped every day in Uttar Pradesh in 2009.

The best shit I’ll read all week (via emlestrange)

The best ever response to the ‘not all men!’ crusade. If it’s not about you, stop making it about you.

My name is Sami Ahmed and the child bride you can see in the photo is my mum. When my mum Saira was 13 years old her wedding was arranged to a stranger twice her age, in Bangladesh.
After my birth she found out that her husband was a manic-depressive pedophile who had molested his 9 year old niece.
10 million girls a year are still forced into child marriages. My Justice For Saira petition is one small step towards ending child marriage in our lifetime!
