Egypt: Epidemic of Sexual Violence. Rescue. Restore. Renew. What We Can Learn From The Largest International Study On Rape That's Been Conducted So Far. By Tara Culp-Ressler "What We Can Learn From The Largest International Study On Rape That’s Been Conducted So Far" The UN study surveyed over 10,000 men from Bangladesh, China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Sri Lanka.
The researchers caution that some regional attitudes about sexuality in Southeastern Asia may contribute to the results that they gathered across those six countries. Still, though, there are some big takeaways from their findings. Here’s what the new research can tell us about the landscape of sexual violence as a whole: Many people have the wrong idea about what “rape” actually is. Rape occurs within marriages, too.
Repeat offenses are very high among rapists. Unhealthy attitudes about sexuality take root at a young age. 125 million mutilated women and girls. The true extent of female genital mutilation or cutting is huge and revealed on Monday in a report from Unicef (pdf).
It says a total of 125 million women and girls are now living with the consequences of FGM – and yet the report suggests that the practice continues only because of social convention, while most women and men wish it would end. There are 29 countries in Africa where FGM is now practised but over half the girls who are cut live in just three – Egypt, Ethiopia and Nigeria. It may surprise many people to learn that cutting is highly prevalent in Egypt. The report says 91% of girls in Egypt are cut, most of them – 77% – by a medical professional, which indicates how much of an establishment practice it is, and raises ethical questions of the doctors and nurses involved.
Le repassage des seins, une violence peu connue. @hommelibre « Votre idéologie vous fait asséner des supposées certitudes qui n’en sont en rien » Je dis la même chose de la vôtre.
Ça ne fait rien avancer. Vous rejeter mon idéologie par principe, non par des arguments. J’ ai bien dit que « ce sont les hommes et femmes, aliénés par la société d’ exploitation humaine, qui sont tous responsables des horreurs de cette société » Mais surtout les hommes car ce sont eux qui contrôlent la société. J’ insiste, le principal fauteur est la société elle même, car c’ est elle qui forment les esprits, et non le contraire. La relecture de l’ histoire avec les thèses marxistes confirme leurs justesses et cohérence globale par rapport à la doxa bourgeoise qui n’ explique rien du tout, et embrouille tout à dessein ; en particulier en attribuant la cause des guerres aux religions, à la haine des peuples, au conflit de civilisation, etc..
A Rape a Minute, a Thousand Corpses a Year: Hate Crimes in America (and Elsewhere) Protesters on Sunday, December 21 in Delhi protest for justice for Jyoti Singh Pandey.
(Photo: ramesh_lalwani / flickr)Here in the United States, where there is a reported rape every 6.2 minutes, and one in five women will be raped in her lifetime, the rape and gruesome murder of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi on December 16th was treated as an exceptional incident. The story of the alleged rape of an unconscious teenager by members of the Steubenville High School football team was still unfolding, and gang rapes aren't that unusual here either. Take your pick: some of the 20 men who gang-raped an 11-year-old in Cleveland, Texas, were sentenced in November, while the instigator of the gang rape of a 16-year-old in Richmond, California, was sentenced in October, and four men who gang-raped a 15-year-old near New Orleans were sentenced in April, though the six men who gang-raped a 14-year-old in Chicago last fall are still at large.

(New York) – Saudi authorities should end the country’s driving ban for women as the “Women2Drive” campaign gathers momentum, Human Rights Watch said today.
Saudi women’s rights activists have called on women with international drivers’ licenses to get behind the wheel on October 26, 2013, as part of the “Women2Drive” campaign to end the prohibition on driving. “It is hard to believe that in the 21st century, Saudi Arabia is still barring women from driving,” said Rothna Begum, Middle East and North Africa women’s rights researcher at Human Rights Watch. “It’s past time to address the country’s systemic discrimination; driving could open roads to reform.”
