  • The list of female celebrities speaking out about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment includes Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow. (Although too many men have remained silent.)

  • A Michigan man who raped a then 12-year-old girl, was awarded joint custody of the eight-year-old child who resulted from his assault, until the order was stayed this afternoon after widespread outrage.
  • Female, Black, and Hispanic technology industry workers in the U.S. are more likely than white men to think that workplace discrimination is a problem.
  • An Edmonton lawyer representing a man accused of sexual assault has asked to review the judicial training materials on prosecuting sex crimes to look for anti-male bias.
