She is 9 years old and blank to the outside world she once played in. She lies curled in fetal position in a rehabilitation clinic bed, under 24-hour watch by police guards. In the few waking moments that interrupt her fitful coma, her eyes open and eerie noises gush from her throat. She is Girl X, the victim of a brutal assault and rape in a seventh-floor stairwell at Chicago's Cabrini-Green housing project--and an unwitting symbol of outrage in this city's black community.

Authorities said Tuesday they have a suspect in the killing and sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl in which two young boys had initially been charged. A police source who spoke on the condition he not be identified said the suspect already was jailed on an unrelated rape charge when DNA tests indicated he assaulted Ryan Harris. The man's DNA matched semen found on underwear that was stuffed into the girl's mouth, police said.

A legally blind woman was able to identify a 14-year-old as the youth who raped her by smelling his cologne and feeling his hands, authorities said Sunday. The 24-year-old woman, whose eyesight is so poor she can distinguish only between light and dark, was raped in the laundry room of her North Side apartment building Saturday night, police Lt. Lee Hamilton said.

A 10-year-old girl whose beating six months ago shocked even veteran police investigators went home from the Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital in Chicago. Later this summer, the child, known as "Girl X" and never publicly identified, will go to the Illinois Center for Rehabilitation and Education, officials said. She was found near death, after being assaulted, beaten and forced to drink roach poison at Chicago's Cabrini-Green housing project.

When Sheila de Bretteville was teaching graphic design at CalArts in the early 1970s, at a time when so much education was tailored to male students, she lobbied her male dean for the chance to devote her two days of teaching each week entirely to female students. Surprisingly, she says, he eventually relented. It fueled an admittedly utopian idea: What would it look like to start a center for feminist culture and education run by women for women where she didn't need permission from that dean?
