The teenage girl, dressed in pink, sits in the dirt before six community elders.
Her crime? Being too scared to tell anyone her father raped her.The male-dominated councils that govern villages in India are hundreds of years old and have been known for their harsh punishments. This is a crime beyond comprehension, to punish a 13 year old girl for "keeping mum"?, knowing she would not be believed. It is know India also has a big problem with their "Cast System" and it along with "tribal mob" law enforcement needs a total overhaul. But alas, not in our lifetime, as it's embedded in their time machine culture. www.washingtonpost.com... d6c840-c531-11e5-8965-0607e0e265ce_story.html?wpmm=1&wpinl_ww
A villager ties her waist with rope, holding the other end, and lifts a tree branch into the air. She bows her head. The first lash comes, then another, then another. Ten in all. She lets out a wail.

Not good, but also none of yours or my business. Making it an issue here because it happened over there is just dumb. What, personally, are YOU going to do about this? Nothing. So it boils down to awareness.
Thank you, I'm aware...
Ok with me if YOU think it's dumb. So it appears your opinion is that women's RAPE is a "dumb" subject and should be suppressed and not be spoken about? I see your 51 post's are all reply's to others ,so how about a not so "dumb" article from you?.....
