We've taken to the streets in our millions to protest sexual violence–what more do you want?by Jessica Abrahams / January 7, 2016 / Leave a comment
On New Year’s Eve, at least 80 women in the German city of Cologne were harassed, robbed and assaulted by a group of up to 1,000 men, who are said to have been of Arab or North African appearance, in what may have been coordinated attacks. Two women have reported being raped. Others have been left with injuries and scars. It must have been terrifying, and will have a permanent impact on some of the victims.
The incident has received widespread media attention. Yet some on social media and blogging sites have accused feminists of ignoring or downplaying the event for fear of inflaming racial tensions, amid wider allegations of an attempted “cover up”.
