In concluding her response to the news story in the 30 December Wall Street Journal, Lauren Wolfe writes:
“Ten concrete ways women are criminalized for being brutalized. Ten concrete acts that show women their bodies are public property, not their own to protect. Ten concrete statements that show that institutions like police and courts are exhaustingly feral in their thinking, and that their thinking is what blocks the road to justice and change.
With the close of 2013 and the dawn of a new year, here’s to working toward changing each of these inadequacies at all levels of society in 2014.”
