I am glad to see that the article was in Time. Mainstream media is taking notice. It's maddening that many people still believe, "You can't assault a sex worker,"  but it hasn't been that long ago that many believed a man couldn't assault his wife. We are slowly moving away from those backward ideas. I hope so anyway.

Yes, they did move it. 

I'm going to http://catalystcon.com/ this year to fill in.  LOL

I will be at Desiree and I hope there are others, here, that go as well.

Not with SESTA going thru.  I am so mad at my Senators for voting for this badly written bill.  It is legislative clerks writing these laws and giving cursory briefs to the senators & representatives. 

Plus, the Women's March left them off in their most current statement.  Another  "group" of women not including ALL women.
