    From gluten-free dating to Rosa Parks, stories from this week on the women’s sites.

    The Real Work of Rosa Parks (RH Reality Check)

    Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, RH Reality Check has a story shedding light on Rosa Parks’s less-discussed work on exposing and documenting sexual violence against black women. “As branch secretary of the Montgomery NAACP,” writes Jasmine Burnett, she collected testimonies about “hostile experiences in the workplace, social spaces, and those committed at the dark end of the street.”

    Most-Wanted Celebrity E-Dates

    Jennifer Lawrence, Ryan Seacrest top the list—but the No. 2 picks are surprising.

    Imagine logging in to your dating website of choice, only to find a message waiting for you from Ryan Gosling or Mila Kunis.

    A new survey by Match.com (which is owned by The Daily Beast's parent company, IAC) asked 1,000 singles, who they would most like to see join the dating website. Alas, they did not pick Martha Stewart, who recently signed up for the e-dating service. Nor did they choose Diane Keaton, who said on Ellen last month that she'd like to get married. No, it was this year's golden girl, Jennifer Lawrence who topped the list with 34.17 percent of votes. The most desired man: Ryan Seacrest, with 28.16 percent.

    “It was shocking. At first, I was very suspicious,” Brodie tells me on his lunch break at New York's Forest Hills High School, where he is a guidance counselor. “My first thought was, ‘Oh my God, are they kidding?!’”
