Women Need Heroes
I have been soooo busy with work and classes (plus Internet connection problems). I’m actually starting to give up on the whole “lunch break” concept. Sigh. Anyway, in my quick morning coffee and web surfing, I saw this Feministing blog post that really gave me a boost to my spirits:
“Your date’s over, mister.”
Via Sinister Girl comes a great story about women looking out for each other to prevent rape.
Stories about women looking out for other women need as much spotlight as possible. It’s discouraging to hear the negative stories about women competing with each other or being divided along feminist and non-feminist lines. This story leaves you with a great feeling of what women at their best can do for each other. We can make this world a little safer for each other.
