Alexandra Brodsky, the anti-rape culture activist honored in this year’s edition of the Forward 50, has been garnering national attention with a recent study on a “rape-adjacent” practice known as “stealthing.”
As was recently revealed in exclusive Forward coverage, Israeli journalist Ari Shavit has been accused of sexual misconduct. In a statement published in Haaretz, Shavit offers a window into the soul-searching that can apparently happen when more than one woman accuses you of inappropriate behavior:
When I first saw the infamous Donald Trump Access Hollywood video a few weeks ago, in which he bragged to Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women, I instantly felt sick, enraged, and dizzyingly triggered. Little did I know that women all over the country – and perhaps the world – felt exactly as I did.
It isn’t making headlines around the world like it was back in October, but Israelis and Palestinians continue to ride their “latest wave of violence.” Only this week, a Palestinian rammed his car into a bus stop in Jerusalem, wounding more than 10 people, including an infant, and was shot dead by security forces. Over the weekend, clashes on the Gaza border resulted in one Palestinian dead and dozens wounded.
In 2012, Amy Ziering’s documentary “The Invisible War” uncovered the epidemic of sexual assaults in the United States military, which earned her an Academy Award nomination.
