    The Occupy movement claims to represent the "99 percent," but blogger Tina Dupuy say's she's visited protests in eight cities and found Occupy groups inordinately composed of men. "I'm called 'that white bitch who gets everything she wants' at the GA's [general assemblies]," said one 21-year-old female protester at Occupy L.A. Rapes were reported at protests in New York and Baltimore, and a man was arrested in Los Angeles for trying to light a woman's hair on fire. The Occupy gender gap doesn't reflect the movement's view of women, but it's curious that it's had trouble drawing many to its ranks. At Occupy L.A., the question of how to get the girls involved comes up nearly every night.
