An Assemblywoman is hoping to end so-called “virginity testing” on women in California. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez introduced legislation yesterday that would penalize doctors for examining a woman’s hymen to determine whether she is sexually active. The bill comes after rapper T.I. sparked national controversy when he said he had virginity tests performed on his teenage daughter every year.
