Now What?

Women in America have come a long way. We can vote. We are no longer considered property. We can work any job a man can for a fraction of the pay. We can walk through life knowing 1 in 6 women will be sexually assaulted compared to 1 in 33 men. If you happen to be the one in six it is debatable how much time your attacker will actually serve behind bars. You can be nearly confident that your attacker will spend more time for raping you than for stealing a bag of Cheetos.

How long before our laws reflect that we value our children and the women in our lives. America has waged war on terror and war on drugs. What about war against sexual assault? Can politicians stop sexually harassing their interns and cheating on their wives long enough to make this a priority?

Here are some links from my bloggy friends about protecting women and children...

Great post... and you are sooo right!

I have three sons... I talk EVERY SINGLE DAY to them about how to treat a woman... what NOT to do, WHAT NOT TO SAY... what cheating is... that NO means exactly that... NO! It dOES NOT mean "MAYBE"...

Those idiots who found their SOUL MATES while married are such fools.

Great post.
