The Military Used to Get Rid of Rape Victims by Claiming They Were Mentally Ill Slate
AOC has written previously about a bias against military women who are sexual assault survivors. Simply stated, the military woman must be crazy.
From 2001 to 2010, over 31,000 military service members received personality disorder discharges. The new Human Rights Watch report says that although PD does not have greater prevalence among women, females were discharged at nearly double their proportions in the military gender mix.

Can better access to water aid women's rights in Africa? Christian Science Monitor
A new international study of 24 sub-Saharan African countries confirms the dangerous reality that the work of collecting water is disproportionately done by women.
A container of water typically weighs between 40 and 55 pounds. Burdened by the weight, females are also exposed to dangerous risks of sexual assault in hauling water over long distances.
Water collection keeps girls out of school and women away from gainful employment to increase personal and national economic productivity.
This Is Where Women Are Seeking Peace In The World's Most Violent Country Buzzfeed
El Salvador's former first lady has come to the rescue of women in the most violent country in the world.
It is, frankly, terrifying to be a woman in El Salvador. The staunchly Catholic country of six million on the Pacific coast of the Central American isthmus is one of the most machista and patriarchal in the region.
Vanda Pignato has founded six miniature cities spread throughout the country -- destinations where women can learn, grow, and escape from the certain death that dominates so many lives.
GLAMTRIBALE Shares Major Giraffe Love
DNA Research explains Giraffes' Long Necks As Global Population Plummets 40% GLAMTRIBALE
If elephants are threatened by an international demand for ivory, giraffes are threatened with extinction because of the local market for 'bush meat' and demand for skins in the luxury market. Not all species of giraffes are equally threatened.
A single Kordofan giraffe can produce up to 270 kilograms of meat, enough to feed an army of poachers for weeks, according to experts. Its unique and distinctive spotted skin is used for luxury goods and carries a high price in a country like the Congo where per capita income is less than $230.
GLAMTRIBALE Shares Epic Elephant Love
Burning the Ivory Is Just the Beginning The Guardian
GLAMTRIBALE has written extensively about Kenya's burning of confiscated ivory worth over $105 million. Inspite of heavy rains and gloomy skies, the burning went off without a hitch at the end of April.
Writers Jonathan and Angela Scott reflect on a lifetime of interest and involvement in elephant conservation and the ivory trade in Kenya. They witnessed Kenya's first ivory burn in July 1989, when Kenya's elephant population had plummeted from 160,000 in the 1960s to less than 20,000.
Richard Leakey, who will be played by Brad Pitt in director Angelina Jolie's upcoming movie 'Africa', is described as "without question one of the most courageous people I've ever met, prepared to speak up while others remain silent, to put his life on the line for the sake of his principles."
