Here Are Three Things I Read Today

[Content Note: Institutional rape/violence against women—graphic.]

Katy Migiro at TrustLaw: Nairobi in Crisis as Women Are Beaten, Raped, and Killed with Impunity.

Jayashree Nandi & Dwaipayan Ghosh in the Times of India: Fierce Protests in New Delhi After Gang Rape of Woman on Bus

Jessica Fender in the Denver Post: Judge: Denver Cop Convicted of Rape and Kidnapping Free on Bond Until Sentencing.

I don't know what to say about these stories. Which are only three that I saw, with many more in the world today I did not see.

I don't know what to do about stopping this from happening, except to wield my one little teaspoon every day with as much furious resolve as I can.

I share a grim sisterhood with the victimized women at their centers. I guess I just want to mark that this is happening, that I am paying attention, and that I thirst for justice and peace.
