I believe that capitalism is often glossed over within the feminist movement (or human rights groups for that matter) as something that can’t be changed or even discussed as a source of potential obstacles. As a result, I encourage all of us to think more about the ways capitalism may be impeding progress and ways that we can work to combat these issues.

The word “rape” contains a magnitude that far exceeds its stoic dictionary definition of “the unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse.” Indeed, the word “rape” has, over the course of the past 20 years, come to dominate our societal vocabulary. Rape is more than just an act. It is an epidemic that is far from controlled.

Last year, President Obama spoke to a crowd of over 1,000 University of Michigan students on campus. His speech touched on a variety of topics, from health care to higher education, but the issue that predominated his speech was his plan to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour.
