With an auditorium full of female students, Lincoln University president Robert R. Jennings offered the sort of fatherly advice he believes many of them need when it comes to sex and men. "We have, we had, on this campus last semester three cases of young women who after having done whatever they did with young men and then it didn't turn out the way they wanted it to turn out, guess what they did," he began. "They went to Public Safety and said, 'He raped me.' " His comments came back in September, at Lincoln's annual All Women's Convocation.

It is a drizzly, steel-gray morning in Woodbury and inside the Lighthouse Community, young women are descending the staircase with their babies, four, five, six of them, shaking off sleep, taking another tentative step toward the razor-edged world outside the windows. Their hair still wet from showers, their babies sucking contentedly on bottles, the women settle into chairs in a small sitting room. Covering the walls are religious inscriptions and pictures and a number of images of lighthouses.

Whether it's combing through Grandmother's attic, recycling worn-before gowns, shopping at off-the-beaten-path boutiques, or hitting up the online luxury dress rental site Rent the Runway, young women attending Saturday night's Academy Ball will be changing up staid red-carpet rules. "I'm renting my dress because I like the idea that I'm getting to wear a really nice designer gown without breaking the bank," said Andrea Lewis. Lewis, 26, is a Rutgers University Ph.D. student whose gold beaded Nicole Miller will be arriving Thursday at her Center City apartment from Rent the Runway, where you can borrow from the latest special-occasion designer collections for a fraction of the price.

In 1904, a group of civic-minded Jewish women founded the Rebecca Gratz Club to cushion the way for young immigrant women, newly arrived in America. In the mid-1940s, with immigration interrupted by World War II, the group turned its attentions to young women who had flocked to Philadelphia, seeking jobs in the city's industries. By the 1950s, the focus shifted again, to mentally and emotionally troubled women who had nowhere else to turn. The late 1960s and early '70s saw yet another focus, on the problems of troubled, abused or neglected teenage girls.

College fraternities, long known as bastions of grace and decorum, are these days featuring yet one more accoutrement of scholastic refinement - the stripper pole. The most important campus development since the keg, the stripper pole shines like a luminous totem festooning the halls of the American academy. It's erected for a single, glorious purpose: To get drunken chicks to do slutty stuff. As students convene on college campuses, many will be partying on and around sturdy items such as the portable Lil' Mynx dance poles, manufactured with love in Fresno, Calif.

Look out for Girl Culture. The focus on young women is here, and it's getting bigger. It's showing up in novels, academic studies, guidebooks and TV commercials. Watch the young women in the Nike commercial urge parents to let their girls play sports. "If you let me play," the girls tell the camera, then the chances of the girls suffering from a number of social and health ills will shrink. The message: Playing sports increases a girl's self-esteem. Page through "The College Woman's Handbook" (Dobkin & Sipp)

Their friendship didn't get off to the easiest start. Phyllis Markoff was waiting in her oncologist's office for chemotherapy treatment when she noticed the scarf on the woman across from her, a woman also in her mid-30s named Emily Scattergood. Markoff asked where she bought it. "She just said, 'My sister got it for me.' I was wearing my wig and she didn't think I was a cancer patient so she was really put off," said Markoff, of Cherry Hill. "I was like, 'I'm going to the beach, and I don't want to go bald.

Janel Schillig has been stepped on, kicked, and whacked in the head. She has faced objects flying at her at high speeds. She has been bruised and battered - and wouldn't trade the experience for anything else. That is because Schillig is a soccer goalie, a position that carries with it a long list of occupational hazards. When a ball takes flight, a goalie is considered fair game. Sure, she can use her hands, but that doesn't mean opponents can't barrel into her at full force. Yet despite the dangers, Schillig relishes her role: "I just love playing the game, and it's such a great challenge.

A feverish, coming-of-age melodrama about same-sex love consummated in a Canadian girls' school, Lost and Delirious aspires to be both the bookend to and update of that 1931 landmark, M?dchen in Uniform. Filmmaker L?a Pool's perfectly cast, if insufficiently dramatized, film presents three adolescent female archetypes on a collision course. There is the goddess, a sexually experimental bombshell named Victoria, played by va-va-voomy Jessica Par? of Stardom fame. There is the tomboy, an unapologetic lesbian named Paulie, played by plucky Piper Perabo of Coyote Ugly infamy.

TWENTY YEARS from now, when my baby daughter is on the brink of full adulthood, I will tell her about my experience as a 20-year-old intern in Washington, D.C. A decade ago, I headed to the District for a month-long stint in a Senate office. Like most dreamy-eyed and ambitious young women in the Beltway, I was high on the glamor and history of our august Capitol, in awe of all the important men who rustled and hustled in dark tailored suits, and impressed with the media entourages that trailed the politicians like starved ducklings.

  The president of Lincoln University on Tuesday issued an apology for remarks he made in September at an all-women's convocation that some interpreted as blaming women for sexual assault. "My message was intended to emphasize personal responsibility and mutual respect," Lincoln president Robert R. Jennings wrote to the student body. "I apologize for my choice of words. I certainly did not intend to hurt or offend anyone. " His comments come two days after The Inquirer reported that Jennings had told an auditorium full of female students: "We have, we had, on this campus last semester three cases of young women who after having done whatever they did with young men and then it didn't turn out the way they wanted it to turn out, guess what they did?

For the McIntyre brothers of North Philadelphia, pimping was a family affair - a profession that landed one in federal prison Monday and threatens to send the other to join him soon. A federal judge sentenced younger brother Rahim, an aspiring 35-year-old rapper who went by the street name "King Kobra," to 21 years and 10 months behind bars on Monday after a conviction on three counts of sex trafficking. Younger brother Rashaad, who adopted "Sincere" as his moniker, pleaded guilty to trafficking charges of his own and an additional count of producing child pornography.

DO YOU think that running 300 meters in 77 seconds, doing 13 push-ups (un-timed), performing a 14-inch vertical jump and running 1.5 miles in 17 minutes and 48 seconds is a Herculean feat and too high a standard for a Pennsylvania State Police officer? Well, apparently, the U.S. Justice Department thinks that standard is unreasonable for women, and filed a lawsuit two weeks ago against the Pennsylvania State Police, declaring that the physical-fitness test discriminates against them.

Staring out of a window at the Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Sarah McLachlan says of course she'd like to be known for her music.

" Her sound and songs are hopeful, as is her new album Shine On - and she plans to showcase that style at the Mann Center on Thursday night....

IN THE past week, more has been said about sexual assaults on college women than probably at any time in history. The White House released new measures from a federal task force on the issue, the New York Times featured a front-page story and discussions lit up national TV talk shows, tweets, web posts and many column inches. But one photograph says it all, one photograph that explains why we're now confronting the scandalous reality that, according to one study, one in five college women has been raped, their complaints ignored and covered up by their schools.

What do Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton agree on? They, like many other prominent Americans, talk effusively about helping Afghan women. The fate of Afghan women is also a subject that grabs the attention of Americans who have otherwise lost interest in that country. When Afghans voted last week, much of the U.S. media coverage focused on lines of burka-clad female voters at the polls. So let's assume (and it's far from certain) that this interest in Afghan women is genuine and will outlast the U.S. troop exit at the end of 2014.
