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.
- How can the way buildings are designed help us both heal from violence and prevent future incidents? This article post-Sandy Hook discusses the tragedy and features WSCADV’s Building Dignity project.
- 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.”
