Thank you to everyone who left me comments and sent emails with well wishes. I definitely took advantage of the time off and spent some quality time with my family. But it’s a new week, so convalescent time is over and back to work I go. I’m headed to the NAC one more time later in the week; until then much of my time will be spent refining a new curriculum (speaking of which: we still have room in this course for anyone interested–more info here). Before I get to my list of what’s caught my eye since last we spoke, a reminder that the National Sexual Assault Conference is happening this week in Pittsburgh. If you can’t be there (like me), follow along at #NSAC2014.
In that vein, I thought this piece really nailed it.
Some encouraging news on FGM (but not enough)
A reminder that IPV knows no boundaries (can we talk about use of the word “slugged” in a news article, though?)
Do you know how to win an argument?
The impact of decriminalizing sex work on public health
What a great conversation for us to have.
“I don’t know” makes a powerful statement
Debate: children and digital privacy
Should research fraud be a crime?
