What’s Current is Feminist Current’s daily news roundup.

  • The University of Bristol’s Students’ Union is working towards instigating a blanket ban on feminists who question the notion that gender is innate and that “identifying as a woman” makes a person female.
  • Child welfare advocates in the US report that family courts often grant abusive fathers custody rights due to a prevailing belief among the judiciary that abuse victims are lying.
  • Female firefighters in the US have been subject to sexual harassment and assault for decades — those who reported it say they faced retaliation, including bullying and demotions.
  • Conductor James Levine was music director of the Metropolitan Opera for 40 years before they severed ties with him, due to sexual misconduct allegations. Former students and colleagues allege he ran a sex cult, claiming being “less inhibited sexually” would make students better musicians.
  • After two months in operation, the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund has heard from over 1,700 women across dozens of industries regarding sexual harassment complaints, and is preparing to begin disbursing funds to support claims.
