What’s Current: Jack the Ripper museum to host ‘fun’ Halloween event offering selfies with dead women’s bodies

Protest to occur tomorrow in front of London’s Jack the Ripper museum to protest their event for “fun” selfies with the mutilated bodies of dead women.

Eaves, a UK charity that has supported female victims of male violence since 1977, has been forced to cease operations.

Fox News asked a panel of gross old men to judge women on whether they can wear leggings.

Feeling uneasy for her safety, Germaine Greer will not be speaking at Cardiff University after all.

“Being a doctor who performs abortions means you always fear your life is in danger.” Threats and violence by anti-abortion groups attempt to bully doctors out of doing their jobs.

All female flight crew asked how they will cope without make-up or men in space. (My guess is they’ll be pretty alright.)

There’s nowhere you can experience the female breast like at Michfest. Blogger Maria Catt writes:

“When I went to fest I thought I’d wear a bra or shirt the whole time. What an amazing thing, to see big heavy breasts, nipples pointing low, and to see women carrying those breasts like they were signifiers of status, of being an elder, a visible sign they were one of the women who had built this Fest. I wondered how different being a teenager and a young woman would have been for me if I hadn’t had the idea that my breasts didn’t look like they should, didn’t measure up. I wondered if I had the idea that a breast that points down was a sign of authority what I would have thought about myself when mine came in that way.”

Happy Halloween, sisters! Tonight I raise a cup of witch’s brew to you and your coven, across the globe.
