This issue was inspired by a lazy afternoon and a recent episode of Oprah: which I admit to with more than slight embarrassment. The episode was about the "Marginalization of Women" to use Oprah's terminology. Guests included Karrine Steffans (The author of Confessions of a Video Vixen), Pink talking about her new song Stupid Girls, Ariel Levy (The author of Female Chauvinist Pigs), a recruiter for Girls Gone Wild on spring break and the resident psychologist Dr. Robin. My chagrin is not due to the fact I was sucked into the pop culture phenomenon that is the Oprah show, but due to the fact that she initiated a conversation that we should be engaged in as sexual violence professionals and advocates. My first thought was that we should be leading the conversation. I wanted to hear the debate spill out of conference rooms, rape crisis centers, shelters and lecture halls and onto the small screen not the other way around.

The Israeli Hamodia, which is controlled by Gur hasidim, who are infamous for their bizarre sexual restriction and marginalization of women, was actually more liberal on the issue of publishing women's photos and, as the Times of Israel piece notes (but without explaining the affiliations and the politics), once it stopped publishing photos of women's faces, it for a time replaced them with drawings of women's faces.
