The San Jose Mercury News highlighted this today. It was shocking to think that the courts in Italy sided with the accused rapist in the case of the woman who was wearing jeans that were "too tight". I read the article to my class and they were shocked. On the penisula, there is a program called MyStrength, and it teaches boys how to be respectful to girls on campus. I think is raises the awareness levels of how prevalent sexual assault is. My students were shocked by the statistics of 1 out of 3 women in the world are assaulted in some form in their lifetimes.
Another article that caught their attention was the fact that Gov. Arnold does NOT take a salary. They were very interested in that, and wanted to say so many things. Think about being so rich, that you do not have to work. I guess his only desire is to be governor. It must be nice to work for free.....What do you think?
