If you haven't stumbled across the #YesAllWomen on Twitter, you should click the link and read some of it now. Many of the tweets share stories by women who had interactions where men assumed they had a "right" to do something the woman didn't want. And, since this space is too small to explain why this sharing is awesome, I suggest you read this for an intro to the hashtag, read this for a recent incident that happened to Britt Julious, and then keep reading if any of the other links seem confusing.
