A California rep has proposed a bill that would require a student’s rape charges to appear on their college transcript.

Zochem Inc. has been ordered to pay $60,000 in “moral damages” after firing a woman who complained of constant on-the-job sexual harassment.

An undocumented woman seeking a protective order against her abusive boyfriend was arrested after ICE agents reportedly received a tip about her hearing (likely from the abuser himself).

Aboriginal police in a small Innu community refused to investigate a sexual abuse allegation because the accused was the chief.
