A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.” 
The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services. Women should only be asked to provide knowledge or technical skills in the workplace, but not other things,” says Ye Haiyan, an advocate of women’s and children’s rights.

Ok so I was coming back home and a guy was hitting his ex girlfriend or girlfriend and calling her puta in the middle of the street and NO ONE WAS DOING ANYTHING TO HELP HER and I asked him to leave her alone and he said “I can do whatever I want with her” and slapped her in the face while she was trying to punch him and I swear I never felt so angry in my life, I was so so so mad at him and I punched him so hard and then this girl started to kick him and a cop saw us and arrested him  I’ve never felt so good in my whole life I literally don’t know how it happened but I feel great, my heart is beating sooo fast I feel like I’m going to pass out.

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”
