Why we still need feminism (Part 2)

This just blew my mind. I was looking up the story about how abused women are being turned away from full women's shelters in Alberta, and I surfed into the Alberta Council of Women's Shelters site. The screenshot to the right is a link from the ACWS home page. It gives instructions on how to remove telltale cookie and cache files which would reveal that the Women's Shelter webpage had been accessed... in case *someone* is watching.

"Is someone watching your computer activity? Hide your tracks." Imagine living in that kind of fear. If anything graphically illustrates the need for the women's programs that feminism has given us, and the need for feminism to continue standing up for them, it's this.
