COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic

Must Reads for the Week of February 21

Yet we find ourselves moving back decades, when hearing about Tennessee’s new rape law that protects the rapist or the failure of educators in helping sexual assault victims at an elite evangelical school, or learn from Google that parents expect their sons to be geniuses and daughters to be thin and beautiful.
