Yesterday marked another achievement in history: the 113th Congress will welcome four new female Senators into the fold. There will now be at least 19 women serving in the Senate, making this the largest group of women that has ever served.
One Republican woman joined a group of mostly Democratic senators late last week to try and convince Republicans to support an extended version of the Violence Against Women Act. The act started as a bill created in 1994 to provide money for "emergency shelters, counseling, rape crisis centers, and legal services for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking."
A female high school student was asked to leave a school dance because she brought a girl as a date. Equality Utah instructed the student to contact the ACLU. Based on previous court precedence under the First Amendment banning a same-sex couple is a violation of equal rights.
A few weeks ago, CollegeCandy posted a piece on How to Have the Best Vaginia in Town, a post that featured a number of ridiculous, but real vajazzling techniques (which by the way was not supposed to be taken as serious suggestions).

Why did it take Daniel Craig dressing up like a woman to get people to notice this? March 8 is International Women’s Day and I didn’t know that, either. And I know it's Women’s History month because CollegeCandy told me it is. But what about the rest of the world?
The House in Arizona passed a bill to ban abortions performed on the basis of race or sex. This means women would have to justify the reason they want to have an abortion. This is especially problematic because a selective body could try and target a women's race as the reason she wants an abortion rather than the fact that maybe she can't afford to support a child at that stage in her life.
One of the most important issues we are facing today is violence against women. Based on data available, 70 percent of women experience physical or sexual violence from men in their lifetime. This staggering number alone stresses the importance of heightened awareness, and increased action toward ending violence against women
