Quickies: Businesswomen fundraise to get rape kits tested, Tim Hunt, caring for others, and Sea World
- Detroit businesswomen team up to get rape kits tested – “And already, Ms. Worthy said her office had identified 652 people suspected of being serial sexual assault offenders and had secured 27 convictions. An additional 182 cases are being investigated and 1,598 more are awaiting investigation.” From Ray.
- Saving Tim Hunt – “The campaign to exonerate Tim Hunt for his sexist remarks in Seoul is built on myths, misinformation, and spin.” From Ray.
- Nurses, fathers, teachers, mothers: Why do we devalue someone the minute they care for others? – “I started thinking my way through the women’s movement and how we had come to define equality—that women are equal to men only as long as they are doing the work that men have traditionally done.”
- Sea World to end killer whale shows in wake of protests – “He said the company will replace its Californian Shamu show – in which whales dive, jump and splash guests to the demands of their trainers – with “an all new orca experience focused on the natural environment [of the whales]”.”
