Keep Yourself Updated

There’s a lot going on in the news. So check out these links and find out what’s happening lately.

  • Maryville, MO rape case will be reopened after the outcry from Steubenville.

    The mother of the victim said:

    My concern was that some other girls came forward and told me that the same thing happened with this same group of boys. When I had talked to the Sheriff initially he told me that there had been girls who had come forward and that there had been maybe even 10 other girls that were also assaulted. So later on he said that they were all liars, I digitally recorded him saying that they were all liars and that they just wanted to crucify those poor innocent boys. So my concern is: what is going to take for them to do something here? Is one of these girls gonna to have to die? Are they going to end up freezing in their front yard before they do something?

  • Jessica Valenti writes “What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape” in response to Maryville, MO rape case.

  • Artist creates the photo series Alone Time in which the model is portraying different genders in the same frame. An interview from the artist can be found here on Buzzfeed.

  • Powerful poetry from Terisa Siagatonu and Rudy Francisco at Hollywood’s Da Poetry Lounge during the 2013 National Poetry Slam semifinals.

    These are only a few articles that I found interesting. Is there anything in the news that caught your eye?
