ENOLA—The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) believes that pornography and sexually explicit materials have no place in the highest law enforcement office in the Commonwealth —or any workplace—as it contributes to an environment that is inappropriate at best and hostile at worst.
Dr Isabel Apawo Phiri, associate and acting general secretary of the World Council of Churches (WCC), has expressed solidarity with those seeking justice for women who suffered from sexual slavery imposed by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.
Phiri expressed these views in a letter to the Korean Council for Comfort Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan – War & Women's Human Rights Museum, as part of a global action on the second International Memorial Day for the “comfort women” observed on 14 August.
LONDON/NEW YORK, 22 July 2014 – The UK Government and UNICEF are hosting today a first-ever Girl Summit to rally support for much faster progress to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage – two practices that affect millions of girls across the globe.
UNICEF data released today show that while prevalence has decreased slightly over the past three decades, rates of progress need to be scaled up dramatically, simply to offset population growth in the countries where the practices are most common.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator and former sex crimes prosecutor Claire McCaskill today released the results of a first-of-its-kind national survey on campus sexual assaults—results McCaskill said must serve as a “wakeup call” to the nation’s institutions of higher learning.
The massive survey of schools demonstrates a disturbing failure by many institutions to comply with the law and with best practices in how they handle sexual violence against students—failures which affect nearly every stage of the institutions’ responses to sexual violence.
