  • Texting and driving: Amanda Clark's story

    Amanda believed she was able to talk on the phone and drive like a pro until she rolled her car and walked away. She wrote in her diary she would never talk and drive again. She told her family, her boyfriend, her best friend, she would be a better driver and put her cell phone away. One year and one day after her first crash, she drove off a freeway embankment while texting.

  • The history of sexual harassment in America: five things to know

    Just like many movements for equal rights in America, the path for women to seek recourse from sexual harassment has been through the courts. But grassroots activism in the 1970s opened the space for a nationwide conversation, and the Civil Rights Movement can be credited for building a legal foundation that feminist legal theorists expanded upon to fight sexual harassment. Many of the first lawsuits were brought by African American women like Mechelle Vinson, whose case led to the Supreme Court’s landmark 1986 ruling that employers could be liable for the sexual harassers who preyed on women at their workplace.
