Another way to assess the impact of misogyny: Abused women are 70 percent more likely to have heart disease, 80 percent more likely to experience a stroke and 60 percent more likely to develop asthma.
Nearly a quarter of employed women report that domestic violence has affected their work performance at some point in their lives. Each year, an estimated 8 million days of paid work is lost in the U.S. because of domestic violence.
Domestic violence costs $8.3 billion in expenses annually: a combination of higher medical costs ($5.8 billion) and lost productivity ($2.5 billion).
Addressing this issue could save thousands of lives and billions of dollars. But as long as the symptoms and consequences of domestic violence go unnoticed or overlooked, nothing changes.

Tessa Paneth-Pollak declares, “Can we make a law against men using the Salem witch trials as a metaphor for their experience? IT HAPPENED TO WOMEN. That appropriation of women’s victimization as a shield by male accuseds is an abusive move right there.”
(Especially when it’s a metaphor for men being held accountable for misogynist violence and abuse. Especially when it’s Woody Allen saying it.) #whichhunt #witchhunt

These moments–there have been many since 2012–when it feels as though a dam has broken and a flood of stories is scouring out the existing landscape

These moments–there have been many since 2012–when it feels as though a dam has broken and a flood of stories is scouring out the existing landscape. A dam called patriarchy’s silence, a flood called women’s voices.
Thank you Amy Siskind, for giving this ME TOO thing momentum.* This feminist revolution rolls forward in upheavals and milestones, points at which women say, never again, say, this is unbearable and we will not bear it anymore, be quiet about it any more. Around the Steubenville rape and the New Delhi rape-torture-murder, around the Isla Vista mass shooting that begat the hashtag #yesallwomen, around the exposure of serial sexual assaults by a Canadian radio personality that begat #Ibelieveher, around domestic violence, and so much more. SIlence lets these things go on, the silence of victims, witnesses, the society that tolerates the destruction of the victimized, that ignores the monstrosity of the victimizers, and breaking silence breaks the conditions in which these crimes thrive. I am encouraged to see that this time around many men see that the silence of men who are witnesses to abuses or to the jokes, harrassments, belief systems behind abuse are now speaking up to say that it is on them to speak up, to refuse to let it go without rejection, criticism, reporting, that it is up to them to support victims and not support victimizers or make excuses….. I believe we are moving forward, and though it is hard to believe about facing horror, there’s hope in it.
*clarification: others originated it, Amy amplified it.

“‘This notion that Vikings were a pure race — that picture is something we need to wash away,’ he said

“‘This notion that Vikings were a pure race — that picture is something we need to wash away,’ he said. ‘There are so many artifacts that show Arabic writing in the bands. It is very likely that they came here and lived,’ said Mr. Skoldborg, who works as a forger in a smith near Gothenburg.
Solveig von Malmborg, who belongs to the network Vikings Against Racism, which tries to combat the extreme right’s appropriation of Viking heritage, said Viking enthusiasts were often mistaken for racists and Nazis.”
