The U.S. Congress, supported by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), has designated June as National Internet Safety Month. As we near the end of the month, what are the lessons we have learned about cyber safety so far?
Why do we call women's issues "women's issues"? So much of the inequality and violence that women encounter are relevant to men as well. The problems of patriarchy are not exclusively damaging to women -- they hurt men, too.

My acquaintance was bullied on social media, and that experience prompted an idea that could encourage others to make a positive difference while challenging the vile cesspool of cruel trolls who infest the Internet. Let's call it the "Good Morning Project."
Employees do not have to disclose their sexual orientation or gender identity. However, it is not too much information to know the sexual orientation and gender identity of one's employees.
