Are there activities in town that address this issue? A "Code Pink" day for women?
I've watched Super Bowl games in the past, some of them a few miles from home (at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena). I'm through with the fascination that the sports media has generated, though millions are not.
In the article "Sunday Bloody Sunday" in the Jan. 20 edition of the Asian Reporter (out of Portland, Ore.), columnist (and ex-KBOO programmer) Taro O'Sullivan writes, "It is the most deadly and bloody days for women in the United States. It is the day that domestic violence against women is highest in the U.S." Nonprofits concerned with battered women and law enforcement agencies can reliably predict that Superbowl Sunday will be the number one day of the year for reported physical assault on women.
Taro O'Sullivan goes on to write that the "big game" is the trigger along with getting drunk that puts men over the top.
