"Gangbang Interviews" and "Bikini Shots": Silicon Valley’s Brogrammer Problem | Herstory | Scoop.it
The surprising thing wasn't that a 28-year-old "assclown" would channel The Social Network's Sean Parker—it was that Van Horn's comments came on the heels of a whole series of tech-startup flareups over everything from advertising women as "perks" at a company event, to a marketing video featuring a woman clad in a corporate T-shirt and underwear, to a startup pitch session featuring a recurring photo of "leaping bikini-clad women."

Breast Cancer Survivor Jailed Over Accidental $280 Medical Bill

Breast Cancer Survivor Jailed Over Accidental $280 Medical Bill | Herstory | Scoop.it

By Harry Bradford, The Huffington Post

 

In the latest example of aggressive debt collector tactics, an Illinois woman found herelf jailed over a bill she didn’t even owe in the first place.

 

Breast cancer survivor Lisa Lindsay of Herrin, Illinois was put in debtors' prison over a $280 medical bill that was sent to her by accident, the Associated Press reports (h/t The Daily Mail). Even after Lindsay was told she didn't have to pay the bill, it was sent to a collection agency. Eventually state troopers took her from her home in handcuffs. Lindsay ended up having to pay $600 to settle the charges.

 

Episodes like Lindsay’s are becoming increasingly common as the number of debts referred to third-party collection agencies has doubled since 2000. Because one third of U.S. states currently allow debtors to be imprisoned, thousands of Americans have been jailed because they can't pay their bills. [more]

Rep. Gwen Moore Recounts Own Rape and Sexual Assault

Rep. Gwen Moore Recounts Own Rape and Sexual Assault | Herstory | Scoop.it

by JOHN PARKINSON,

ABC News Blogs

 

Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wisc., who joined Pelosi in introducing the [Violence Against Women] legislation, said, “Violence against women is as American as apple pie.”

 

“Domestic violence has been a thread throughout my personal life — up to and including being a child repeatedly sexually assaulted, up to and including being an adult who’s been raped.”

 

“This law has helped ensure that more victims report domestic violence to the police, that the rate of non-fatal intimate partner violence against women has been decreased by 53 percent, in that period of time,” she said. “Rape crisis centers have been able to keep their doors open [and] law enforcement and victims’ services providers are working together to better meet the needs of victims.”

 

“Unfortunately violence is not limited to just Democrats or just Republicans or just blacks or just whites,” Moore, the Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional Women’s Caucus, said. “It’s not limited to heterosexual relationships, but there are relationships of all kinds that are exposed to domestic violence.”

FCC asks Supreme Court to uphold fine for Super Bowl 'wardrobe malfunction' - The Hill's Hillicon Valley

FCC asks Supreme Court to uphold fine for Super Bowl 'wardrobe malfunction' - The Hill's Hillicon Valley | Herstory | Scoop.it

Are we really still talking about this?  I know some folks are outraged about seeing breasts, but really, they are just mammary glands that feed babies.  (And some people like to look at for other reasons.)  The "malfunction" lasted less than one second EIGHT YEARS AGO.  

 

Message to FCC...we have more important issues to deal with today.  My priority, would be requiring disclaimers between NEWS and OPINION, FACT and FICTION (aka I made this up). Confusion created by broadcasters is causing much more damage to our country than a woman's breast seen 8 years ago and endlessly available on the internet today.  

 

Rant over.

Minnesota House and Senate Pass New Rules On Telemed Abortions and Clinic Licensing

Minnesota House and Senate Pass New Rules On Telemed Abortions and Clinic Licensing | Herstory | Scoop.it

by ROBIN MARTY, RH Reality Check

 

Minnesota Republicans are jumping on the anti-choice bandwagon and have passed two new bills designed to add more burdensome regulation on abortion providers.

 

The Republican dominated House voted overwhelmingly to make it a felony to dispense RU-486 without a doctor in the room, and that the doctor must be present when it is ingested as well.

 

The new regulations on RU-486 are in reaction to a new clinic in Rochester that was providing "telemed" abortions to other clinics in more remote areas of the state that did not have available abortion providers. If the bill becomes law, the felony charges would cut off most rural women from being able to obtain an abortion without being forced to travel to one of the large metro areas to find a provider.
