The goals of the summit are to better prosecute cases of sexual violence and provide support for women and girls.

Actress Sandra Bullock has a serious stalker on her hands! Police say 39-year-old Joshua Corbett broke into her Los Angeles home last Sunday and spent more than an hour inside before they were called. Corbett was arrested for residential burglary and now faces criminal charges for having a machine gun in his possession, although police say he did not have it at the time of the break-in. Bullock was home and according to a rep, she wasn't harmed.

If you've ever been interested in screenwriting, how about taking a few pointers from actor James Franco? He's set to teach an online screenwriting course via the learning site Skillshare. Those who are interested will also get lessons from Vince Jolivette who founded Rabbit Bandini Productions with Franco. The introduction to screenwriting for short films class will span fifteen sessions. Students will be challenged with creating an eight minute short screen play. The goal is to get one-on-one feedback as the best of the best will get that opportunity.
