In my neighbourhood there was a serial sex predator breaking into women's homes and sexually assaulting them in their own beds. It's bad enough that women routinely have to take more precautions than men to do basic things like go for a walk or a jog. 1/ #sexualassault #crime
I can't describe to you what it's like to be afraid to do something as necessary as falling asleep in your own bed at night. This is what happened to many women in my neighbourhood. 2/ #VAW
At the time this was going on, a lot of women talked to me about their fear, about being afraid in their own homes, being unable to fall asleep or stay asleep in their own beds. There were a lot of exhausted women in my neighbourhood. 3/ #crime #fear

Five.. five MALES detained over the assualt of the two LESBIANS who were just minding their own business.

All five MALES are complicit in eachother's behavior.
Like a pack of out of control, sex and blood thirsty, feral animals, with no morals, self control, or conscience.
Because of their ages, justice will most likely be inconsequential at best, and in time they'll most likely be flippant of the incident and the trauma they have caused - because these were mere WOMEN, after all.
..LESBIANS..DEVIANTS.. fodder for the MALE gaze and instruments for their entertainment and seemingly insatiable sexual desires.

Everyday they prove over and over again their lack of morals and self control.

As I said, no trans-bill should have 'hate speech' provision - because trans activists consider biological truths as 'hate speech' - women have been banned/sued for stating biological truths - a thread👇 - Isn't it also attack on motherhood?
In case u thought why this needs to be told in the 21st century, that's because the progressive left in the west mandates women r not allowed to assemble without the express permission or presence of males, males in dress that is

A tragic death, and instead of justice and closure, the case is fueled by #ignorance. According to the inspector, "Pramila could not have been raped because she was on her #period." Excuse me, what? #menstruation #rape #nepal

If there is evidence to support the fact that women are never raped when menstruating, then we should just change directions and support #chhaupadi as a safe practice for women, because apparently no rapes happen when women are #menstruating.
@NFCC has put out a statement on the story. Please read. And please, for the sake of women and girls everywhere, we must stop making blanket assumptions that perpetuate violence against women and girls. #VAW #menstruationmatters

Forgive the type-o's but as livid and upset as I am, I didn't bother to proofread the DM! I had every reason in the world to believe this nightmare was on the cusp of ending 2 years ago and a lot of prominent people helped me come to that conclusions!

A thread on what it’s like to be a female academic conducting critical research into the sex industry - or a journey through my last month at work. #MVAW #VAW #EndVAWG #EndDemand #highered #academia
Invited to speak at a UN consultation relating to gender, business and human rights. Despite discussions of the Modern Slavery Act and trafficking, no-one really wanted to talk about trafficking for sexual exploitation. #humantrafficking #modernslavery
But we do, as a wonderful colleague has worked hard to have panel specifically on aspects of this. At the last minute, the line-up is changed to include someone speaking on behalf of a sex industry lobby group.

Something else I try to do every year on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is to tweet parts of Dworkin's "I Want a 24 Hour Truce During Which There Is No Rape." Read it in full here: rapereliefshelter.bc.ca/learn/resource… #MVAW #EndVAW #VAW #VAWG #16Days
Dworkin, addressing male allies: "We don't have forever. Some of us don't have another week or another day to take time for you to discuss whatever it is that will enable you to go out into those streets and do something." #MVAW #EndVAW #16Days
"We use statistics not to try to quantify the injuries, but to convince the world that those injuries even exist...But I hear about the rapes one by one by one by one by one, which is also how they happen. Those statistics are not abstract to me." #MVAW #EndVAW #16Days

News from me: @pamelacross541 & I have been proud to serve as co-chairs of Ontario’s Provincial Roundtable on Violence Against Women. Established in 2015, the Roundtable has provided strategic advice to government on emerging issues related to #VAW. #Onpoli
Through the Roundtable’s ongoing engagement with government and sector partners, we have achieved policy and program change, including provisions in #Bill148, the Fair Workplaces and Better Jobs Act, to provide paid leave to employees who experience domestic or sexual violence.
It’s expensive not to address gender-based violence: it has impacts from health to criminal law process to the economy. Justice Canada estimates the total economic impact of domestic violence on employers annually in Canada is about $78 million. #Onpoli #MeToo

I would still be without food if not for an Angel from a different city delivering me some. My pets are still without their normal pet food. It took me 2 days after no food for 8 to feel somewhat normal. Lack of nutrients to the muscles & oxygen due to emphysema! #Minnesota #VAW
👆Due note all the Minnesota politicians tagged in this feed😠

The murders of #ShannanWatts, Bella,4, Celeste ,3 and the unborn baby boy, Nico, are a devastating reminder that several thousand women are killed each year by #domesticviolence in America and the @WhiteHouse has never once tweeted about it.
According to the CDC and FBI, more than 2k women are killed each year in the U.S. by men. The majority of these killings are #domesticviolence, but there are also murders like that of #MollieTibbetts--women who are murdered by strangers.
Each year the number of women murdered in the US is higher.
#DomesticViolence remains largely unaddressed, under-reported and under-prosecuted, as the current suspension of #UrbanMeyer indicates.

Lori Swanson condones #VAW, didn't you know that. They're are many examples. If you're a victim of Lori Swanson, feel free to comment below. I do know of several, as we have been similarily targeted by her.
