Yoga’s Culture of Sexual Abuse Can’t Be Ignored | VICE | United States

In recent years similar cases have emerged. Victims have spoken of abusive behaviour being justified by ashram leaders as sexual culture, and of having nowhere turn after said abuse. These recurring statements highlight an issue of reporting, control, and protection within a culture that continues to grow but remains largely ungoverned.

I Was Raped—and the Police Told Me I Made It Up | VICE | United States

I Was Raped—and the Police Told Me I Made It Up | VICE | United States | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
Wilbur Brown was arrested for a similar crime a month before Sara’s trial date in 2005. He confessed to both Reedy’s assault and the robbery, in addition to numerous other rapes. In response, after Sara was released, she sued the Cranberry Township Police Department. But the suit was dismissed in 2009, after Detective Evanson presented evidence claiming that Sara had pulled the power cord to the gas station’s security system an hour before the time she claimed to have been assaulted. She pulled the cord, he testified, in order to steal the $600, and then invented the rape story as a mere diversion.

Except, it turns out, the good detective had misread the security company’s timestamp data indicating when the cord was disconnected, and failed to consult the security company experts who actually knew how to read it. This fact came out when, in August of 2010, attorneys of the Women’s Law Project, a civil-rights nonprofit based in Pennsylvania, volunteered to help Sara challenge the dismissal of her lawsuit. The result was that, this past spring, Sara won a settlement of 1.5 million dollars.
Rob Duke's insight:

If you think the cops are bad, try the defense bar.  The defense in many rape cases is "she's lying: we had sex, but it was consensual."  This is an egregious case, no doubt, but most detectives are just vetting the facts because they know the defense is going to be remorseless in doing so....I guess the tactic is that it's better to find out early if the victim is lying.

I like how this article explains how to spend a couple hours with kids. Speaking of our topic, women working in the justice field, I understood that those women cannot bring their kids to work. Or even stay at home with them for the whole day because something might happen and they will have to go to work. Also, while women would be at work I noticed from this article that it is hard to be with the kids. We, men, need to appreciate all the hard work that women do. It sounds easy, to raise a kid, but in reality it is lots of work.

PLAYING BY THE RULES AND TRYING TO DP BETTER FOR YOURSELF AND FAMILY USING THAT WHICH YOU HAVE AVALIABLE CAN EVEN WITH ALL THAT GET YOU CHARGED WITH SOMETHING NOW WHAT ABOUT THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS ABUSE OF OUR CHILDREN AND THEY CANTEVEN BE CHARGED BECAUSE THEIR IS NO LAWS ON THE BOOK FOR THEM TO BE CHARGED BY BUT WHEN IT COMES TO A PARENT THEY BRING OUT THE 20 GUN SALUTE AND CHARGE THEM FOR THE LEAST LITTLE THINGS. IS THERE CHILD DAY CARE PROVIDED FOR ALL THE PARENTS THAT NEED A JOB AND HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO ON A JOB INTERVIEW TO GET ONE, IF NOT WHEN WILL THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDE THE NEEDED SERVICES SO CHARGES LIKE THIS CAN BE ELIMINATED!

Sometimes it feels as if officials take things too far, how are kids supposed to learn their onw boundaries and make decisions?
Alexander Yakovlev's comment, July 24, 10:22 AM
I think this is an example of how sometime our system just doesn’t work well. I personally don’t see nothing wrong that Laura Browder did. Children were always at her sight view. I thought it was kind of smart actually to go to an interview at McDonalds just so the kids can eat and play as well. Too bad our system cannot be worked out better than that. Economy doesn’t pay for nothing and there is no way for her to go to an interview without them, she made a smart choice, yet public will always blame someone for something.

A unit of the Haryana Mahila Rapid Action Force too will be stationed at the police station at all times to deal with emergencies. An ACP-rank officer will be in overall charge of the police station. “The police station will be well-equipped and have a brand new fleet of vehicles, including PCR vans and motorcycles.

--People: Who are they? Where were they educated? Experience?

--Opportunity: Is the market growing, contracting? How can you capture market share? Who are the customers? How does the customer make a choice about what product/service to buy? How much capital does it take to support a dollar of sales?  Who are the competitors? How easy is it to disrupt competitors or have your business model disrupted by the competitors? Who else might be ready to exploit this opportunity?  Can you form alliances with existing or potential competitors?

We conducted in-depth interviews with 60 female scientists and surveyed 557 female scientists, both with help from the Association for Women in Science. These studies provide an important picture of how gender bias plays out in everyday workplace interactions. My previous research has shown that there are four major patterns of bias women face at work. This new study emphasizes that women of color experience these to different degrees, and in different ways. Black women also face a fifth type of bias.

In August 2011, the veterinarian who'd supplied the anesthetic spray was sentenced to 12 years in prison, and the rapists were each sentenced to 25 years (five years shy of Bolivia's maximum penalty). Officially, there were 130 victims—at least one person from more than half of all Manitoba Colony households. But not all those raped were included in the legal case, and it's believed the true number of victims is much, much higher.

MEN and women do not think in the same ways. Few would disagree with that. And science has quantified some of those differences. Men, it is pretty well established, have better motor and spatial abilities than women, and more monomaniacal patterns of thought. Women have better memories, are more socially adept, and are better at dealing with several things at once. There is a lot of overlap, obviously. But on average these observations are true.

Lucille House's curator insight, July 21, 9:48 AM

 

          This is fascinating research; the brain is a mysterious part of the human nervous system. It would make sense that there are anatomical differences between the male and female brain such as the increase in linkages between hemispheres in men’s brains that would add to coordination. It is really interesting to finally hear about the details of the differences such as the example mentioned above. This additional information will have a good impact on society in my opinion. The more we look at the few differences in the male and female brain the more society will realize that although men and women have different strengths overall they have no reason to say that women are weaker than men. Therefore the advancement of medicine will hopefully lead to the advancement of women’s rights.
