Did you know that up until recently there was a five year statute of limitations on a rapist in New York State? Until 2006 charges of rape had to be reported within five years or there could be no prosecution. This was one of the many facts that I learned about rape at a recent Pace University lecture. I was fortunate enough to attend a National Organization for Women panel discussion on the subject of rape last Wednesday and my eyes were opened. The lecture was ... Read More
After over a year of interning at BUST, I am finally bowing out.

Ken Jennings' record-setting appearance was ... Read More
Sometimes, I kind of worry that the United States is reaching the end times. Working toward defunding major women's health organizations? Arresting senators that refuse to show up lest a bill designed to hurt workers be passed? What on earth is going on here? Sometimes I just want to cry. But the internet always comes through for me; this time in the form of a new tumblr called Keep Your Boehner Out Of My Uterus. Sometimes the only thing that works to keep ... Read More
