It's a hard world for women, even in the US

Dear god:
Nearly one in five women surveyed said they had been raped or had experienced an attempted rape at some point, and one in four reported being beaten by an intimate partner. One in six women have been stalked, according to the report.
Easy for most guys to overlook, I suspect. There is a long ways yet to go to civilize men.

  1. i thought the 1:4 ratio for women in rsa was ghastly. 1:5 isn't much better. i didn't realize there was so much violence in the usa. living in places that aren't so urban allows one to be less aware of these unpleasantries, i suppose
