In other news, midterms are over and I’m sure I’ve aced the all, although I’ll find out for sure next week.

As a project for my Psychology of Peace and Conflict class, I’m designing a research instrument to study society’s perception of child sexual abuse: its prevalence, causes, and effects. I’ll be administering it to just my class for now, which is not a random sample, but it will give me a good starting point.  I have a feeling that this might take me down the path toward my eventual thesis, which is pretty exciting.

In Honor of International Women’s Day

March 9, 2009

…which was actually yesterday.

This goes out to all of the women in the Democratic Republic of Congo who are being literally torn apart by rape in war.

This goes out to all of the women in the United States and across the world who are beaten by their husbands and boyfriends.

This goes out to all of the children in the United States and across the world who are targets for sexual abuse within their own families. Studies indicate that more than one in four children are sexually abused, a number that doesn’t change based on country, race, or income.

This goes out to the millions of us who have had to take time out of our lives to heal and deal with the repercussions of sexual assault, rape, and molestation.

And this goes out to those of us who are working for change. Please consider a donation to the Nobel Women’s Initiative, to Generation Five, and to V-Day.

This is Ben Lee paying tribute to John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and all women who are still fighting for equal rights.
