Mark Dorch is the suspect who has been charged with the death of Mary “Unique” Spears, the Detroit woman who was shot and killed after rejecting a man’s advances. Two men and three women who were outside at the American Legion Louis Post No. 375 were also wounded as Dorch allegedly sprayed the area in […]

Alexandra Tweten created the Bye Felipe Instagram account three weeks ago so that she could compile harassing and hostile messages men send women online after being rejected or ignored.

That guy demanding your time is probably the loneliest man in the […]

A New York comedienne has found a creative new way to deflect catcaller demands for you to smile all time: Give them what they want! Death in the family? A fight with your friend? Is your job in danger? No one cares! You just need to be concerned with grinning like an Old Navy mannequin […]

Three women from Philadelphia are fighting back against the rampant sexual harassment that goes on at Comic-Con.
