Women’s Web: Pick Of The Week

Interesting stories this week - anti-rape campaigns,abstinence,arranged marriages and much more!

Anti Rape CampaignWe found a lot of interesting things to read this week!

Jezebel reports on Fortune Magazine finding “50 Women Who Haven’t Been Mommy-Tracked or Forced Out of Business”, and reminds us that we need to remember the problems other, less lucky women face in business.

Read this article about the role of women in the ongoing Koodankulam Anti-Nuclear Protest.

At the F-Word, Laura reports on a new anti-rape campaign launched in Scotland, and links to a separate and very different (and horrible) campaign launched in West Mercia, England.

Do you believe pre-marital sex is okay? Steven Crowder doesn’t, and his judgmental, illogical, sexist abstinence column this week inspired this awesome retaliatory post on Feministe.

On the topic of marriage, these two personal stories about arranged marriage on Indian Homemaker’s blog made my blood boil!

And lastly, the US Presidential campaign is heating up, and both sides are releasing advertisements aimed at women. Jezebel wants you to ‘Meet the Women Behind those Concerned Mom’ Political Ads: who are they, and how were they created by the campaigns’ media consultants?
