Impact: After decades of campaigning, Ireland voted to repeal it’s ban on abortion. Why it's not enough: Argentina’s Senate rejected a law that would've saved women’s lives by legalizing abortion during first 14 wks of pregnancy. The campaign continues.

Sickening report shows that continues to abduct and murder individuals with LGBTQ identities. An utterly barbaric move by the Chechen government. Those crimes must be investigated.

1. Majority of rapes are committed by people known to victim. 2. Often, victims of rape do not physically resist. 3. False rape reports are rare. 4. What women wear is not to blame. 5. Alcohol & drugs can't be an excuse to justify rape. 5 facts you need to know about rape.

Only 8 out of 31 countries in Europe have laws that state that sex without consent is rape. The facts are shockingly clear. It's time to talk about consent, because sex without consent is rape.
