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.

WASHINGTON - Women abandoned Newt Gingrich in droves Tuesday and helped fuel former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's win in Florida's Republican presidential primary, according to an exit poll of voters. Romney also drew strength from Florida's legion of older voters, Hispanics, and two staples among GOP voters this year - those looking for someone to defeat President Obama and people focused on the still-flagging economy. While Romney bested the former House speaker narrowly among men, he strongly outdistanced him among women, winning 52 percent to 28 percent.

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.

It seemed at times like a traditional court hearing. The judge peered down from the bench at the defendant as the parole officer gave her latest report. But then some comments made the assistant district attorney look up from her papers. "I want you to realize that you don't have to be in a relationship with a man to be valuable," Assistant D.A. Shea Rhodes told the defendant. This was no ordinary proceeding. This was Project Dawn Court, Philadelphia's treatment option for prostitution where sex workers opt to seek healing and an escape from the cycle of prostitution.
