New Statesman: What Morrissey and Germaine Greer have in common

Why is Greer ruining her legacy with statements such as “most rapes are just lazy, just careless, insensitive”?

Independent: Who was really on trial in the Ireland and Ulster rugby rape case?

Whose guilt, morally if not legally, have we really been trying to prove? Watching the trial progress, it seemed to me the question was never ‘are these men rapists?’, but always ‘is this woman a liar?’

Independent: Thanks for the advice on rape culture, Ched Evans, but isn’t it time we started prioritising men’s safety instead?

Taking care not to provoke women can be a simple and effective way of staying safe. That's the message the footballer should be sharing.
