I heard on the news this morning of the Saudi ruling that a woman who had been pulled from her car by a gang of thugs, raped with violence, was charged with being out of the house with a man other than her husband and was given the penalty of 95 lashes and 6 months in prison. Appealing, she was given double the lashes - 200 and the prison time.
What will it take for women and children to be safe in this wounded world? It is one thing to have violence imposed upon you - quite another to be held culpable for it.
As a woman I am grieving and angry. Where can I burn my bra?
