Statute of Limitations Runs Out on Injustice at Yale University - by Colleen Corry
New York Times published an article titled “Handling of Sexual Harassment Case Poses Larger Questions at Yale”, which discusses a case of sexual harassment, stalking, and abuse of a woman and prominent doctor who at the time worked in the Cardiology Department at Yale University. While the author of the initial article did a decent job at summarizing the issue, the case is five years old, which is a fact that seems to have been swept under the rug.

Who Cares? A Feminist Critique of the Care Economy - by Nancy Folbre
We live in an increasingly uncaring world. Patriarchal capitalism offers rich financial rewards to those who pursue their individual self-interest and penalizes those committed to the care of others.

Twenty years ago Dorothee Soelle warned of that totalitarian religion in North America that is in power today. She spoke of “Christo-fascism” and meant the “Christian” glossing over a capitalist system that goes along with murder, exploitation and destruction. The harsh words can be found in “Mysticism and Resistance” (NW 10/83).

The Timid and Intimidated Nature of the Pro-Abortion Movement - by Nick Nile
Not only should abortion be legal but it also is well worth arguing that having children should be made illegal (as in a crime). Now here is a statement even most sleeping Americans would agree is a radical proposition (so radical in fact you almost never encounter it). And yet it is a very practical and sane proposition, even to its extreme, logical outcome, that is allowing our very own human species to become extinguished (as in extinct). After all the ecological system of this world doesn...
