The two Indian girls who were gang-raped and murdered earlier this week lived in Uttar Pradesh, which state Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi has said is “one of the worst places to be a woman.” With 200 million inhabitants, Uttar Pradesh is India’s most populous state, and its poorest –– more than 60 million people live on less than $1.25 a day.
According to the National Crime Records Bureau, an average of five women were raped every day in Uttar Pradesh in 2009.

"You must remember, it isn’t about “All men are menaces to women,” it’s about “All women have been menaced by men.”"

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!

"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalises the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalise views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" -Dr. Peter Hegarty

We published this completely mammoth investigatory piece on how students at Tufts have attempted to change how the university deals with survivors of sexual assault, and I am afraid that no one will actually read it, so I would really appreciate a signal boost from campus feminists and allies.

Signal boost.

Well, he was sorta asking for it, dressing in such flammable clothing.


if he didnt want to get set on fire, he should have stayed indoors


He was probably drinking that night, alcohol makes you susceptible to fire.
He probably set himself on fire and then when his girlfriend asked what happened he made this shit up. Guys lie about fire all the time.


If it was a legitimate being-on-fire, then bodies have a way of shutting the flames down.

Being set on fire is like bad weather. If it’s inevitable, why not just sit back and enjoy it?

THIS is excellent.
