ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith presses potential victims of domestic abuse to learn about “elements of provocation” in a panelist discussion on First Take, earning Smith a meager suspension, (almost as meager as the suspension doled out to Baltimore Ravens Running Back/Batterer Ray Rice) but it’s continuing the dialogue on the pervasiveness of victim-blaming.

American soccer—rumored to be unpopular—has a growing audience. Rather than an absence of interest, American soccer is “unpopular,” because of  an absence of men. American women outperform their male counterparts continuously—the approaching 2015 Women’s World Cup may very well launch a dialogue centered on the limited recognition.

High school student Jada, whose assault was recorded and went viral, courageously chose to take control by revealing her identity amidst a climate of mockery and hostility. Online, the recording was received by an unsettling barrage of ridicule from social media users. The atrocity of the brutalization and its aftermath offers us no answers, but does pose a question: when will we begin taking rape seriously?

Iranian women continue to voice opposition to the unwritten regulation barring them from stadiums. The ban, which came about after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, forbids women from attending public sporting events but does not necessarily illegalize their presence. Furthering frustration is the admission of foreign female fans—only Iranian women are excluded. The ludicrous nature of the ban has inspired creative protest, like that of the Women in White Scarves, who write their slogans on their required head coverings.

Resurgence of the Western media’s morbid fascination with sexual assault in India has sensationalized the country’s “deeply embedded rape culture.” However, the US and its European brethren have yet to resolve domestic sexual assault, and their statistics are just as disturbing as nations further east—in some cases, they’re far worse. When the luxury of distance results in hypocrisy, a human rights crisis is reduced to a news headline, and an entire culture becomes recognizable only by its lowest common denominator.
