Heart of darkness: The RCMP, our stolen sisters and the morality of statistics
Big M Musings
The New York-based Human Rights Watch recently issued a report titled Those Who Take Us Away: Abusive Policing and Failures in Protection of Indigenous Women and Girls in Northern British Columbia, Canada. This report detailed the various abuses of indigenous women at the hands of the British Columbia policing forces, including instances of physical and sexual assault. This report surprised far more people than it should have, given that it is the latest report in a series of more long-standing efforts to document the colonial violence endured by indigenous women in Canada.

The House now turns to the Violence Against Women Act
The Washington Post

But the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, passed in the Senate and due for action in the House, is no less important. After the legislation was approved with bipartisan support in 1994, it was reauthorized twice without incident.

Reuters
In a new survey, most women had inaccurate perceptions about the safety and effectiveness of intrauterine devices in preventing pregnancy, say U.S. researchers, who urge doctors to talk more about the benefits of the devices. In particular, many of the study participants didn't know that IUDs are more effective contraceptives than the birth control pill and that the devices don't increase the risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease.

Congress taking aim at military sexual assaults
Stars and Stripes
As the military struggles to eliminate its sexual assault epidemic, Congress has included a record number of provisions in this year's National Defense Authorization Act that address sexual violence. In 2011, 3,192 incidents of sexual assault were reported in the military. Yet, according to the U.S. Department of Defense, this figure may significantly underestimate the actual number of sexual assaults, which may be closer to 19,000 annually.
