It’s looking like the case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn may be dismissed because of “credibility issues” on the part of Diallo. City Councilmember Letitia James, along with the awesome feminist activists at Permanent Wave, have organized a press conference and rally today at 5pm at the NYC Criminal Court on Centre Street. Some of my favorite feminists — Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, Collier Meyerson, Zeinab Eyega — are speaking, and the event is co-sponsored by a variety of fantastic feminist organizations, including Feministing, SisterSongNYC, Mount Sinai’s Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Program (SAVI)/Downstate Coalition for Crime Victims, Hollaback!, and many more. Hope you can be there.
If you can’t make today’s rally, there’s another one tomorrow morning sponsored by SlutWalkNYC.
