I thought about the women only spaces threads of yesteryear, and was wondering if anyone would be interested in creating a thread of news articles written by women, about women.

Who's in? Link away! grin

Another Independent article here about sexist terminology.

I found this one a refreshing counterbalance to all the articles seemingly trying to justify teacher Jeremy Forrester's behaviour, or suggest that a fling with a teacher is "no shakes" for the student. www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/sep/28/relationship-with-teacher-not-my-fault?CMP=twt_gu

This one sets out the role of class in the differing responses to the Rochdale child sexual abuse cases and the abduction of Megan Stammers by her teacher. www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/why-do-we-care-about-megan-stammers-from-eastbourne-but-not-suzie-from-rochdale-8190274.html?origin=internalSearch
