What Do You Do To Not Get Raped?
  • Wow, everyone: Project Unspoken at Emory University put together this amazing video in which it asked both men and women on camera what actions they take on a daily basis to avoid sexual assault and harassment. Not surprisingly, the men say they do nothing … and the women go on and on and on and on.  Seriously, watch this video. It’s very powerful. [Feministing]

Who’d've thunk?! Suggesting that pregnancy from rape is “God’s will,” that some rape is “legitimate” while other rape is not, and saying a woman’s body has “a way of shutting the whole thing down” so pregnancy does not occur from rape DOES NOT MAKE WOMEN WANT TO VOTE FOR YOU. Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin may have found two women — including one who was raped and had an abortion — to appear in a campaign ad proclaiming him the second coming of Gloria Steinem, but the rest of us ladies were not buying it.

Todd Akin's New Ad

Three months ago, Missouri’s Senate candidate Todd Akin said that “pregnancy from rape is really rare” and “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut the whole thing down.” Instead of dropping out of the race for some desperately-needed basic biology lessons, the Republican candidate pressed on with his campaign. Yesterday, he released a campaign ad starring two women, one whom was born in Russia and extols the freedoms of America and another who says she was raped and had an abortion. Keep reading »
