Rape culture, revenge porn, street harassment and victim blaming once again topped headlines, in both a negative and positive way.

Every day, we share articles, blog posts, images and videos that we find interesting with our followers on Twitter and Facebook. These articles speak to issues of violence against women, sexual assault, rape culture and online harassment. They speak to issues of poverty and how society can help women succeed in business. They speak to issues around empowering girls, teaching them media literacy and critical thinking skills and encouraging them to pursue their dreams. Most importantly, these articles help educate our supporters about issues that are being talked about online and offline.
Each week, we will be taking the Top 10 (or so) articles, blog posts, images and videos that were shared online that we think YOU will want to know about. We’ll be sharing these stories and links on the blog, in our weekly Must Reads. If you have a suggestion for an article you think we missed, leave us a comment and share the link!
