  • Radical feminists lead the Auckland Pride Parade over the weekend, carrying a banner that read, “Stop giving kids sex hormones — protect lesbian youth.”
  • Sarah Churchwell argues that the Western literary and political perspective should no longer solely be written by “a penis with a thesaurus.”
  • New evidence shows that US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas lied under oath about his treatment of female colleagues. Jill Abramson argues this constitutes grounds for impeachment.
  • Economists are sharply divided by sex, with female economists far more likely to oppose austerity and hold less seniority.
  • Janice Turner dissects Amnesty International’s defense of Oxfam in context of their support for the global sex trade, and Catherine Bennett asks male politicians in the UK to recognize that if it’s wrong to traffick an impoverished woman in Haiti, then it should be wrong to traffick in Leeds.
