Some news stories that caught our eye this week:
- The heroic story of Amanda Berry’s survival and escape was made possible by a neighbor who “figured it was a domestic violence dispute” and got involved instead of looking the other way.
- Despite regular claims that women often lie about being raped and abused, it’s not actually true. According to a new study, “disbelieving survivors is not only harmful but statistically unfounded.”
- In the super-disturbing category: getting lots of press this week is the new life-sized ex-girlfriend “tactical mannequin target” that bleeds when you shoot her. OK, “super-disturbing” might be way too kind of a description.
