I have been in the 99% my entire life.  In the name of research, I think I need to do a personal comparative study.

I think I started out in the .05% of the 99% - but I've never made it anywhere near the top of the 99%.   I don't even want to do study...I'd get too depressed!

Indian officials are planning a new tool to fight rape: a watch that texts your relatives & police, locates you via GPS, and records video for 30 minutes after a button is pressed. 

While the watch is certainly better than nothing, some women’s rights activists are skeptical… and rightly so. A 2011 study by Trust Law, an organization which calls itself a “global hub” of “news and information on good governance and women’s rights,” ranked India as the fourth most-dangerous country for women. And if you’re unfamiliar with dowry-related violence in India, here’s a refresher, compliments of the UN.

NEW DELHI (AP) — India's Parliament passed a sweeping new law Thursday to protect women against sexual violence in response to a fatal December gang rape and beating of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi.

The new law, which still requires the president's signature before it becomes official, makes stalking, voyeurism and sexual harassment a crime. It also provides for the death penalty for repeat offenders or for rape attacks that lead to the victim's death. The law also makes it a crime for police officers to refuse to open cases when they receive complaints of sexual attacks.
