Infanticide, child marriage and slavery, rape, genital mutilation, forced marriage, tracking, beating, honor killings, acid attacks, can’t go to school, can’t make enough money, – the list goes on an on..http://www.trust.org/trustlaw/news/special-coverage/g20women/
How encouraging amidst all this misery and abuse it is to read about heroines and freedom fighters like the one’s I’ve put together in this slide-show. I could have spent hours adding more to the list, but these brave women and girls are some of the finest representatives I could think of. I will probably add more along the way..
Psst.. I don’t suppose you could tell me of any heroins who are not revolting against Islam.. ?! – We all know what goes on in India, but.. present day names ? – China ? – Africa ? – Shouldn’t be too hard, but it’s quite amazing how Islam is “stealing” the spotlight, isn’t it..
