Some news stories that caught our eye this week:
- A rape survivor goes on Fox’s Hannity to encourage a thoughtful conversation about how to prevent rape and sexual assault. She says,“Telling every woman to get a gun is not rape prevention … We need to teach (young men) about consent and to hold themselves accountable.” The response she’s gotten has been anything but thoughtful.
- Now that you’re depressed about the hateful comments Zerlina Maxwell received following her Hannity appearance, have your hope restored by checking out the “Don’t Be That Guy” ad campaign she references. It’s having an impact!
- Actor Patrick Stewart hosted the launch of the “Ring the Bell” campaign—a call for 1 million men to make 1 million “concrete, actionable promises” to end violence against women.
- The University of Washington’s Sigma Psi Zeta sorority organized this step team showcase to raise awareness about domestic violence. “Stepping is about being strong and about unison. … We want to use it as a gateway to educate a greater audience about domestic violence.”
