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

  • On midterm election day in the US, President Trump’s final campaign rally speech accused women of manufacturing sexual assault allegations and incited attendees to chant, “Lock her up.”
  • Hannah Gavios, left partially paralyzed after she fell 150 feet from a cliff as she was trying to escape a sex attacker, plans to do the New York City Marathon on crutches.
  • Studies reveal that women are less likely to be given CPR by bystanders, who worry that CPR would be either socially inappropriate or that women are too fragile.
  • An ICE detention facility in Pennsylvania claims that the sexual abuse of a female detainee was not a constitutional violation because the victim consented. Sexual contact between staff and inmates is prohibited by law in all cases because of the inherent power imbalance.
