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

  • The US Supreme Court upholds a Kentucky law requiring doctors to perform ultrasounds and show fetal images to patients before performing abortions. Most often, requiring women to undergo invasive transvaginal ultrasounds, as it is the only way to display this information early in pregnancy.
  • Nicole Joliet, a trans-identified Canadian male and former candidate for school board trustee, tweeted that he would like to “personally punch Meghan Murphy in the face.” In a Facebook post, Murphy called out Twitter’s hypocrisy in allowing an individual to threaten violence against women while she remains permanently banned for referring to a male as “he.”
  • Finland’s Sanna Marin, 34, is set to become the world’s youngest serving prime minister after being chosen to take over on behalf of the country’s Social Democratic Party.

  • Documents have come to light revealing the Imperial Japanese Army’s request for the government to provide one “comfort woman” for every 70 soldiers.
  • Police arrest a blogger and self-proclaimed men’s rights activist in connection to a series of posts inciting hatred against women and writing in admiration of Marc Lépine, the man who murdered 14 women École Polytechnique in 1989.
