Maria Teresa Rivera, a 28-year-old factory worker in El Salvador, was incarcerated for four years for having a miscarriage.

The Calgary man who dismembered Joey English, a 25-year-old Indigenous woman was granted bail on Thursday. Joshua Jordan was charged with offering an indignity to human remains, but not murder, because the police did not believe English died due to a criminal act.

On the chess gender gap shows how real gender socialization really is:

“When women did not know their opponents’ gender or thought they were playing other women, they won about half of the games. But when they thought their opponents were male, they won only one in four games, even though they faced the same opponents in all conditions.

The women also played less aggressively and displayed lower self-esteem against ‘male’ opponents.”
