News you can relate to

Some news stories that caught our eye over the past week:

  • With all the public debate over gun control, an important reminder of how abusers use guns in less talked about ways.
  • The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists just released new guidelines for doctors to address rape and sexual abuse, including how to help patients who have experienced birth control sabotage.
  • Usually, the media coverage of domestic violence and sexual assault looks at an individual incident, without putting it into a bigger social context. This article does the opposite, exploring the “pattern of violence against women that’s broad and deep and horrific and incessantly overlooked.”
