Liberal government commits more than $100 million over five years to create a national strategy to prevent “gender-based violence,” in light of Robyn Doolittle’s “Unfounded” report.

A man whose victim killed herself while her rape allegations were being investigated complains that he was put through a “horrendous ordeal” after the case was dropped. An inquest last year found that Hannah Stubbs, 22, had been suffering post-traumatic stress at the time of her death.

Ambrosia Labs is paying Cambodian women less than $10 a day for their breast milk, which they then sell to Americans.

After rejecting his advances, a man followed a 60-year-old woman from a London Tube station, grabbed her from behind and repeatedly hit her in the face.

A 15-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by five or six men or boys on Facebook Live while 40 people watched.

    What is with this creepo, or at least our creepo legal system. It isn’t child porn if it is streamed but not downloaded??? 🙁

    “Jeffrey Urdangen, a professor at Northwestern University’s law school and the director of the school’s Center for Criminal Defence, said it was not illegal to watch such a video or to not report it to the police. He said child pornography charges would not apply unless viewers had downloaded the video.”
