In today’s Daily Telegraph: Women at sex attack risk in taxis:
TAXI drivers are sexually assaulting women and getting away with it, with not one driver charged over serious allegations during the past two years.
That first sentence is great – the focus is on the people doing the crime, and what is happening to them (nothing). Pity the headline doesn’t reflect that.
Update: Check out Mark Chou’s piece in Online Opinion: The marine who wanted more:
In particular, I’m thinking of the insidious links between military presence, militarism and the emergence of a local sex industry to serve it. Whatever Campbell’s letter says about his own views on women, it carries with it the broader undertone that women are there to please, to attract men – perhaps especially military servicemen like himself enjoying their downtime in Darwin.
