Proof that a war against woman is ongoing. 

Jade Geary's comment, September 11, 2013 2:43 PM
That is disgusting. It saddens me that people still fill this kind of behavior is acceptable.
Andrea Fernandes 's comment, September 12, 2013 4:27 AM
It is indeed. But it's a step in the right direction that the people who find this unacceptable are speaking up.

Very confusing reaction from parents about a sex-ed class.
Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, May 1, 2013 7:45 PM

Another group of parents outraged by facts -- not just those an educator shared, but by the facts that young people are masturbating and, in many cases having sex, as well as the fact that whatever they may or may not be doing now they are going to do -- are in fect expected to do -- as adults.

 understanding difference

Shelby Porter's comment, September 19, 2013 2:39 PM
The hijab has become a very controversial issue on the global scale. For example, Saudi Arabian and Iran women are required to wear it where as other countries (most recently France) have banned the wearing of such religious garments. Under the U.S. constitutions first amendment of freedom of speech and freedom of religion allows the women to wear them. For many women it is a choice of modesty or a way to show her devotion to her religion. Many people today still are uneducated about the topic and see it as a way these women are being oppressed. Ultimately it is that woman's choice, but it is a shame that in some places it may come with a price.
