When I get back from vacation, I promise I will post some more math posts in the AHSMP. But for now, you should take a look at this link. We tend to think that that violence against women is decreasing in our country. That law enforcement organizations have learned to take rape and domestic violence more seriously. And perhaps they have. But not everywhere. Of course, this situation is a legacy of our awful treatment of American Indians, and part of the problem is that, according to the law, it's not entirely clear if this really is taking place in our country. But for the sake of the women of South Dakota (on or off of a reservation), let's hope the law enforcement and funds are provided to help that shelter.
Please consider a donation of goods or money—for the women's sake and to send a message that this is unacceptable in our country.
