‘Delete them all right now’

A video has been circulating on Reddit of a woman confronting a man after she saw him allegedly take photos of other women sunbathing on the beach.

The event, which allegedly took place at Fort Meyers Beach in Florida, comes amid a string of news stories involving men taking photos of women in public without their consent. In April, a woman on TikTok claimed that a man had snapped a photo of her while she was working out at a gym. Earlier this month, another TikTok went viral after a woman confronted a “creepy” guy she claimed had been taking

Females told to ‘be quiet’ on transgender issue – ex-weightlifter

Former Olympic weightlifter Tracey Lambrechs says females are being told to “be quiet” when they complain about the fairness of transgender New Zealand athlete Laurel Hubbard competing in women’s competitions.

Hubbard is on track to become the first transgender athlete to compete at an Olympics after the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) modified qualifying requirements for the Tokyo Games on Wednesday.

The 43-year-old still has to satisfy the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) of her fitness and performance standards before selection for the team but the prospect she will compete in Tokyo has already raised hackles.

“I’m quite disappointed, quite disappointed

5 ways to get to the heart of women’s health

As part of National Women’s Health Week, experts at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation are getting to the heart of the matter: cardiovascular disease.

It’s the leading cause of death for women in the Sooner state. But prevention isn’t out of reach, and small changes can add up to longer, healthier life.

Vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins are the tried-and-true Mediterranean diet.

1. Food for thought

“Your gift to your heart is a moderate diet of vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. It’s the tried-and-true Mediterranean diet,” said OMRF Vice President of Research Rodger McEver, M.D., a cardiovascular biologist.

Slain woman was like a little sister, says man who helped fund luxury lifestyle

A Melbourne accountant who helped fund the luxury lifestyle of a woman before she was killed has denied being her pimp or sugar daddy, maintaining they were close friends.

However, Mark Paul Gray said his friendship with Ellie Price soured shortly before her death in April 2020, when she threatened to falsely report him for rape unless he paid her $100,000.

Heart disease and stroke risk doubles if your husband or wife has it, study finds

Having a husband or wife with a heart problem could double someone’s own risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack, according to a study.

Chinese researchers found couples’ heart health was clearly linked and a worsening in one partner was likely to trigger the same in their spouse.

Living the same unhealthy lifestyles was the main link between the two, it suggested — but the stress of looking after a seriously ill partner could also raise heart risk.

One in four men whose wives had heart disease also had the illness themselves, compared to one in eight with healthy

London Mayoral Elections 2021: Which Candidate Is Best For Women?

If re-elected, Khan says he will “help tackle the lack of confidence many women and girls have in policing and the wider criminal justice system,” he writes. First and foremost, he wants to re-frame the narrative. “The problem is with men who are sexist or inappropriate, or even in some cases men that are violent. And it’s not women who should have to change the way they live their lives – it’s men who need to change – and that’s why rooting out these abhorrent behaviours is so important,” he continues.

So, how will he bring about change? By

‘A huge violation of boundaries’

A man secretly moved in a roommate while his wife was away for a weekend.

He feels his behavior is justified and asked Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum if he was right. His wife lost her job and has been unemployed for a year. To cover the cost of their apartment they decided to get a roommate. The wife specifically requested they have only a female roommate. But when they couldn’t find one, the Reddit poster moved a male roommate in while she was gone.

“My wife and I have an apartment together,” the Reddit poster

First woman completing sport analytics degree at Syracuse U

Bailie Brown doesn’t consider herself a trailblazer, and yet in a way she is — and so is her school.

Brown will graduate this month from Syracuse University’s Falk College with a Bachelor of Science degree in sport analytics, becoming the first woman to complete the four-year undergraduate program since its inception five years ago. Her 23 classmates are men.

“It’s definitely an honor,” Brown said. “I think that there’s a little bit of pressure that goes along with that. I think I feel like I need to be successful.”

Syracuse University and California Baptist University in Los Angeles began

Lesbian feminism breaks new ground in post #MeToo France

Paris (AFP)

A new generation of French activists emerging in the post #MeToo era are turning to lesbian feminism to denounce centuries of male oppression, inspiring the first march of lesbians in forty years but also sparking controversy.

French feminists are increasingly drawing on the tools of political lesbianism, which argues heterosexuality and patriarchy are inextricably linked, to contest pervading inequalities between the sexes.

This has caused deep rifts in public opinion — while some laud it as evidence of a new method embraced by a younger generation with a greater intolerance of sexism, others criticise what they perceive as
