More gender links...

[1] An Associated Press article on anonymous rape tests. This is now prevalent in some parts of India too (with some NGOs). The idea is that women (mostly, but not necessarily) who are victims of assault, rape, battery, etc. who may not be open to talking about it and giving a deposition in court, now have the facility of anonymous deposition. They provide their witness statement right after the crime, and the statement is sealed and hidden away, until such time as when the victim might want to open up the case, and actually pursue it.

[2] The way things were (are?)! "The Good Wife's Guide" from The Housekeeping Monthly, 13 May 1955.
