Oh goodness… This here broadcast’s gonna be short, sweet, and to the point.

Here in Hamilton:

Police seek suspect in assaults on four women

Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect — a young white male in a dark hoodie — in two assaults and two sexual assaults against women walking in east Hamilton over the past two weeks.

The incidents all occurred between 8:30 and 9 p.m. and each time, the suspect fled on foot.

The first involved a 55-year-old woman, who was sexually assaulted on St. Andrews Drive on Oct. 9.

The other three happened in the area of Greenhill Road and Quigley Road. A 32-year-old woman was assaulted Oct. 11 and a 55-year-old woman was assaulted the following day. On Oct. 22, a 31-year-old woman was sexually assaulted.

Police said they believe there were witnesses who may have seen the suspect. They are asked to call Det. David Wide of the sexual assault unit at 905-540-5543.

Thinking of finding a more less patriarchy-crazed place to live? That makes two of us:

If you’re the type of person who makes choices according to the New York Times Travel section, you already knew Iceland was too hot to handle. The country’s got some other notable qualities besides being a hip place to visit right now: it’s held its position as the most egalitarian place for women to live for the fifth year in a row.

Maryl Streep and Joss Whedon have something to say about how the media responds to women. “Why do you always write these strong women characters?” … “Recognizing somebody else’s power does not diminish your own.”
