theglobeandmail.com — It's right there on the cover, in that flinchy word "hymen" - a word to make every woman who sees it wince a little, because there is no good context in which anyone talks about hymens. That provocation cues you for what's coming from Mona Eltahawy: There will be provocation, with no apologies.

No barrier’s too big for Brazilian hair-care pioneer

theglobeandmail.com — Midway through lunch with Leila Velez, she mentions that in 2005 she flew to Miami with the leadership team from her hair-care products company for a crucial meeting. They went two days early, she told me, so they could visit Disney World - and I laughed: Brazilians, I have learned, adore Disney.

Brazil’s Petrobras scandal widens to include 57 politicians

theglobeandmail.com — It began, Pedro Barusco told Brazil's Congress, as a personal sort of thing: He pocketed bribes from the representatives of companies that wanted contracts with Petrobras, the national oil company where he was a senior executive. An envelope of cash here and there. That was back in the 1990s.
