Carnival Against Sexual Violence: 22!

1 05 2007

Another fantastic collection of posts Marcella over at abyss2hope gathered up!  And we’re in it!  Thanks Marcella!  A few of my favorites so far:


personal stories

In on the record posted at Taking Steps, we get one woman’s thoughts about what would have happened if her rape had been reported and whether she would have been viewed the way many are viewing the alleged victim in the Duke case.

raising awareness

In Join Voices with Native American and Alaska Native Women posted at Holly’s Fight for Justice, we get a discussion on the Amnesty International report which showed that Native American and Alaska Native women are more than 2.5 times more likely to be raped or sexually assaulted than other women in the United States in general. A complex maze of tribal, state and federal jurisdictions allows perpetrators to rape with impunity and in some cases even encourages assaults.


In What to Do if You Are a Male Rape Victim posted at Finding Your Marbles, we get a discussion aimed at men and boys who have been raped or sexually assaulted.

media watch

In Review of “Till Domestic Violence Does Us Part?” posted at Deaf Blog: Alternative Solutions Center (ASC), we get a review of a new video about domestic violence, made by Deaf filmmakers, for Deaf viewers (an audience too often left out of awareness campaigns).


In Won’t believe the hype. posted at Sparkle*Matrix, we get a discussion of the myth which is being pitched by many people right now that a rape accusation ruins a man’s life.


In It’s all about sex, baby posted at open windows, we get a discussion on India’s debate about whether sex-education should be made mandatory in schools or not.


In Enough Please with the Free Speech Nonsense posted at Slant Truth, we get a response to those who demand to be allowed to say whatever they want on other people’s blogs because to reject a comment is to violate someone’s first amendment rights.

The next submission deadline is May 12 at 11 pm. The 23nd edition will be out on May 15.

To nominate a post (your own or someone else’s) to the next edition of carnival against sexual violence, use our carnival submission form. Links to everything related to the carnival can be found on the blog dedicated to this carnival,
