CAIRO - A mob of hundreds of men assaulted women holding a march demanding an end to sexual harassment Friday, with the attackers overwhelming the male guardians and groping and molesting several of the female marchers in Cairo's Tahrir Square. From the ferocity of the assault, some of the victims said it appeared to have been an organized attempt to drive women out of demonstrations and trample on the pro-democracy protest movement. The attack follows smaller scale assaults on women this week in Tahrir, the epicenter of the uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak to step down last year.

For a long time, I've secretly worried about women. Somewhere in the back of my brain there has long been a lingering fear for their safety. I suppose it's because women seem particularly vulnerable to the sadism in our community. My discomfort does not stem from feelings of paternalism. It comes from genuine concern for those in our society who so often become the victims of people who prey on the unsuspecting and the unprotected. When I read about serial murders, they seem often to involve women as victims.

During an interview for a job she never got, recalls Susan Kampf, now a school principal in Chester County, a male principal inquired about her preferred method of birth control. In a previous job, she says, another principal fobbed off much of his work on her, made sexual remarks and touched her in unwelcome ways until she confronted him and asked him to stop. Kampf, 38, is principal of Greenwood Elementary School in the Kennett Consolidated School District, and she says the district is a good place to work.

MORE OFFENSIVE fireworks were on display at the basketball venue - this time courtesy of the U.S. women. The Americans tied their Olympic scoring mark in a 114-66 rout of China on Sunday and set a couple of other U.S. records along the way. Just days after the U.S. men shattered the Olympic record for points in a game in a 156-73 win over Nigeria, the women put on their own show. "We've got a lot of good offensive players," said U.S. coach Geno Auriemma. "When everything is clicking and they're in sync and the ball's moving like it was today, we're a fun team to watch and hopefully everyone who was watching enjoyed it. " Diana Taurasi scored 22 as the women matched the 114 points they scored against Spain in 1992, and fell well short of the women's Olympic mark of 128 points set by Brazil in 2004.

I've finally discovered the answer to a number of questions I've always had about women. Women do so many of the same strange things, they all must have gone somewhere to learn them. My theory is that sometime between ages 15 and 18, women disappear for the month of July to attend the SSFW (Secret School for Women). Men, if you have any doubt about this, just ask your significant other where she was during the July when she was 16. She'll probably say she can't remember. Don't be misled.

By Gina Barreca Forget about the usual resolutions, my friends. Face facts: You don't need to lose 15 pounds, because if you're over 45, the only people looking at you closely are other women over 45, and all they're thinking is, "Do I look like her from the back?" And unless guests need to wear haz-mat masks when they step into your foyer, your house is probably clean enough. Stop watching Hoarders and telling yourself you're out of control if you have more than three pairs of unmatched socks or haven't done the dishes since this morning.

WASHINGTON - Declaring "the days of Rambo are over," a top general said Tuesday that cultural, social and behavioral concerns may be bigger hurdles than tough physical fitness requirements for women looking to join the military's special operations units. Maj. Gen. Bennet Sacolick, director of force management for U.S. Special Operations Command, said that having seen women working alongside commando teams in Afghanistan, he is less concerned about their physical strength than the social issues that could arise.

Is there really a need to host a professional conference specifically for women? After all, isn't this the 21st century? Haven't women proven that we have the capabilities and resourcefulness to be successful CEOs, world leaders, media moguls, and beyond? We have come a tremendous way, but there is still work to be done. Only 18 of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women and only 16 percent of congressional seats are held by women. Research has shown that when more women are involved in leadership decisions, companies are more successful.
