  • Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has issued a decree allowing women to drive.
  • On Monday, former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison for sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.
  • Tracy Mercier, a prison guard with the Correctional Service of Canada, was sexually assaulted and harassed, but her employer and her union failed to support her.
  • A man convicted of pimping a woman over a seven years says he was just trying to help her.
  • Rather sad, tbh.
