Some news stories that caught our eye this week:
- Girls in the UK who are scared their families are taking them out of the country in order to force them into marriage, are hiding spoons in their underwear.

Slowly this changed, and after giving in to a series of outbursts, I found myself in a position that I had never dreamed of.”
- Native Americans are pointing out that beyond environmental problems, the Keystone Pipeline will cause an “onslaught of violence against women and families that energy development brings against our people.”
