Submarine owner says missing journalist "Buried At Sea": Danish Police

Submarine owner says missing journalist "Buried At Sea": Danish Police | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
The case is being heard in private, or behind "closed doors," but some details were made public Monday after a request from the prosecutors office and defense attorneys.

"The defendant has explained to the police and the court, that there was an accident on board which caused Kim Wall’s death and that he consequently buried her at sea at a non-defined location in the Bay of Koge,” the statement read.

“Copenhagen Police may additionally disclose that the preliminary charge of manslaughter is upheld. As the investigation of the case is still covered by ‘closed doors,’ no further information can be given.”

Police have previously stated it appeared the 40-foot vessel, known as UC3 Nautilus, had been deliberately sunk.

Confronting Male Dominance in the Urban Planning Debate

Confronting Male Dominance in the Urban Planning Debate | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it

Why are conversations about urban planning issues — especially online — so dominated by men?

Alissa Walker at Curbed recently explored that topic in a lengthy and well-worth-reading-in-full article, “Mansplaining the City.” After reading four books about gentrification, Walker writes, it struck her that they were all written by men.

In her work as an urbanist writer, Walker says she’s often found herself as the sole female voice:

It’s disheartening that the public dialogue about our cities is largely unchanged since Jacobs’s era, when her adversary Robert Moses dismissed the group of mostly female activists working to save Washington Square Park as “a bunch of mothers.” Today, these activists may finally be coming out from behind the scenes to take on leadership positions, but you can’t hear them over the relentless mansplaining in Twitter replies and at public events.

She interviewed USC professor Lisa Schweitzer, who wrote about her encounters with “mansplaining” in a post last year, The Smartest Urbanist Boy in the Room. Walker writes:

Schweitzer has a few theories on why women are getting drowned out by Smartest Boy Urbanists. Women often want to engage in a conversation that centers around identity, which in an urban context means building cities that are more equitable for all residents. When women do raise questions as part of this identity dialogue, Schweitzer says they routinely get called out for their dissenting positions — a phenomenon she has eloquently named “Shut up, bitch” urban politics.

NPR Identifies False Accuser As ‘Survivor' | NewBostonPost

NPR Identifies False Accuser As ‘Survivor' | NewBostonPost | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
A Boston-based National Public Radio correspondent received a torrent of criticism over the weekend after she defended the media organization’s decision to refer to a Columbia University student who falsely accused another student of rape as a “survivor.”
The piece, produced for NPR’s “All Things Considered,” examined a new approach to adjudicating campus sexual assault allegations known as “restorative justice.” NPR correspondent Tovia Smith said the proposed practice involves focusing on the harm done “and finding ways to repair it” instead of “judging or punishing the perpetrator.”
Smith quoted in her report an activist named Emma Sulkowicz, whom she described as a “survivor.”

A million miles away behind her own front door: A Saudi woman's secret apartment

A million miles away behind her own front door: A Saudi woman's secret apartment | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it


Maha Almutairi has a secret apartment. At 35, like most unmarried Saudi women, she still officially lives at home. Her father decides what can and can't happen in his home. Decisions about what she will study, where she will work, all are subject to her father's permission.

She lives in an apartment in a building her father owns, but he refuses to allow cats anywhere in the building.

However, a new company rents apartments to women without a male family member's permission, so Maha secretly "lives" in her father's building, but actually lives across town in an apartment with her cats.

Kimber Elena Andruss's comment, August 16, 1:17 AM
How does this happen? THat's what I don't understand. Does no one pay attention? Are their former friends, family, loved ones so unaware? This is tragic, not only for the events that have already taken place, but for the fact that this family is mentally and emotionally scarred, indefinitely. The psychological scars that they now possess will haunt them endlessly, which is I think personally is the biggest crime that can be committed against someone.

Ohio man hid corpse in freezer as new girlfriend moved in, police... | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
An Ohio man is accused of stashing the remains of what police believe is his missing former girlfriend in a freezer that he bought with his new, live-in girlfriend, according to a criminal complaint filed in court on Tuesday.

After Katrina Layton moved in last month with Arturo Novoa in Youngstown, Ohio, she began using the telephone of Novoa's missing former girlfriend, driving her car and caring for her dog, according to a police report included in the complaint.


Layton and Novoa have been charged with the abuse of a corpse, which was discovered on Saturday in several bags inside the freezer by Novoa's landlord's wife.

Novoa had asked his landlord if he could move the freezer down to the landlord's basement because his electricity had been shut off and "he didn't want his freezer full of meat to spoil," the police report said. The landlord's wife became suspicious after seeing the freezer was padlocked, and decided to break in.
