The injustices of the world can be stopped if we stand together against them.




A rather depressing one for you, but something you can do is put your name to this petition and stand with over a million other voices to say that this is wrong. I had to double check the sources a few times to make sure what I was reading was infact true. I share this in total disbelief:

15-year-old rape-survivor sentenced to be whipped 100 times in public in Maldives!
The girl's stepfather is accused of raping her for years and murdering the baby she bore. Now the court says she must be flogged for “sex outside marriage”! President Waheed of the Maldives is already feeling global pressure on this, and we can force him to save this girl and change the law to spare other victims this cruel fate. This is how we can end the War on Women – by standing up every time an outrage like this happens.
Let's build a million-strong petition to President Waheed this week, then threaten the islands' reputation through hard-hitting ads in travel magazines and online until he steps in to save her and abolish this outrageous law. Sign now and share this with everyone to get us to a million!

Here is the Petition: http://avaaz.org/en/maldives_global/
