Why 2014 is a key year for women's rights and gender equality
The Guardian
Over the past few decades, the often tireless work of the women's movement around the world has brought positive change. There has been a growing recognition that countries cannot thrive if half the population is left out of education and work, or not included in decision-making. Laws have been introduced to recognize women's right to safety in and outside the home, equal pay in the workplace and equality under the law, and there have been attitudinal changes towards women.

How frequent is rape in your state?
CNN (opinion)
"Alaska has an epidemic," Gov. Sean Parnell told me. It's not bear attacks or deadly roads. It's rape and violence against women. Reported rape is more common in Alaska than any other state, according to 2012 FBI crime estimates. The per capita rate is about three times the national average. In America's "Last Frontier" state, nearly 80 incidences of rape are reported per 100,000 people, the data show. Nationally, the rate is 27 per 100,000.

Domestic violence has no boundaries
North & South Brunswick Sentinel
A punch in the face marked the end of what started as a festive night for Lauren. The Old Bridge resident had attended a wedding with her husband, who had gotten drunk and had never before exhibited any signs of violence. “I was pretty much blown away,” she said. “All I could think of were my kids. I needed to protect my kids.” Lauren was not alone. An estimated one in four women is affected by domestic violence at some point during their lifetime, according to 180 Turning Lives Around, a Hazlet-based nonprofit dedicated to ending domestic and sexual violence. Men can also fall prey to such abuse, but in much smaller numbers. Women constitute about 76 percent of victims, according to the 2011 “Domestic Violence in New Jersey” report.

Forensic science experts from North Carolina State University have just published a comprehensive overview of forensic research that can be used to identify child abuse and starvation. "By pulling all of this information together in one place, we hope that we can save the lives of some children and find justice for others," says Dr. Ann Ross, a professor of anthropology at NC State and lead author of the paper. Ross is also co-editor of the book "The Juvenile Skeleton in Forensic Abuse Investigations."

New Afghanistan law to silence victims of violence against women
The Guardian
A new Afghan law will allow men to attack their wives, children and sisters without fear of judicial punishment, undoing years of slow progress in tackling violence in a country blighted by so-called "honor" killings, forced marriage and vicious domestic abuse. The small but significant change to Afghanistan's criminal prosecution code bans relatives of an accused person from testifying against them. Most violence against women in Afghanistan is within the family, so the law – passed by parliament but awaiting the signature of the president, Hamid Karzai – will effectively silence victims as well as most potential witnesses to their suffering.
