    A study released by the Thomson Reuters Foundation reveals that, for the first time, the United States has been named one of the top ten most dangerous countries for women. The mirth is entirely unintentional, even though it's hard to believe that someone isn't pulling the leg of the international community. The study asked 550 "women's experts" which countries are the "most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of health care, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking," Leading the list is India, with its rape gangs...

    A civil lawsuit charging Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis with raping a publicist has prompted three additional women to come forward with their own sexual misconduct accusations. One of the new accusers says Haggis forced her to perform X, then raped her. And another of the new women speaking out told the Associated Press that before she managed to run away, Haggis told her, “I need to be inside you.”

    Three hundred Hollywood women have launched a new group to tackle sexual harrasment following revelations in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The “Time’s Up” campaign group has received the backing of actors including Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Emma Stone and Natalie Portman as well as executives and writers. There will be a $13million legal fund for those less privileged who are affected by sexual misconduct to take legal action. The group took out a full page advert in The New York Times and the Spanish-language newspaper La Opinion launching the group. “The struggle for women to break in,...

    Pressured to respond to burgeoning sexual misconduct allegations, the House easily approved a bipartisan measure Wednesday requiring annual anti-harassment training for lawmakers and aides after a debate that rang with lawmakers' own accounts of such episodes. Voice vote passage came as Congress waged year-end battles over Republican tax cuts and a potential government shutdown but has been diverted to also address allegations against some of its own. The accused include liberal heroes Rep. John Conyers and Sen. Al Franken and far-right [sic] GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.

    George H.W. Bush apologized to actress Heather Lind after she claimed in a since-deleted Instagram post that he sexually assaulted her at an event in 2014. Presidential First Children Through the Years “President Bush would never — under any circumstance — intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind,” the former president’s spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, October 25. Lind, 34, alleged on Instagram on Tuesday, October 24, that Bush, 93, “sexually assaulted” her during a photo op at a private screening of her...

    One night I asked my husband if he understood that as a woman I’m afraid much of the time. He didn’t, so I explained it to him. Yesterday the words “Me too” were re-tweeted, posted, and shared all over Facebook and Twitter. News organizations responded by reporting how Alyssa Milano’s initial call to write “Me too” if you have ever been sexually harassed or assaulted had erupted into a huge viral event. Was it a shock? Were people really that surprised? Or maybe it was only men who didn’t realize how pervasive of an issue this is. Are men that...

    During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO. The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures. In a series of comments over...

    Marlon Brando's former business manager filed a $US3.5 million ($A4.5 million) claim against the Oscar-winning actor's estate last week, alleging he had sexually harassed her throughout her employment and also breached their contract when he removed her as a co-executor of his will just days before his death.The claim, submitted by attorneys for Jo An Corrales of Kalama, Washington, states that Brando "caused a hostile work environment due to his continuous acts of sexual harassment" towards Corrales and that the harassment continued throughout the course of her employment, which began in December 2000 and ended around March 8 this year.No...
