And then you get us pissed off:
According to women’s rights activists in the area (Nagpur, India), men who rape are frequently let off by the courts, and helped by police. This weekend, 50 women — led by a rape victim — burnt down the houses of three rapists who had been attacking women for months with no consequences.
“We have all waited for police to act, but nothing happens. The molestations and rapes go on and nobody does anything,” said Madam Chandra, a women’s rights activist in Nagpur.
This renegade rape punishment began several months ago when a gang leader who had raped multiple women was stabbed and stoned by a mob of women.
Though I cannot, in good conscience, endorse killing people or burning down their houses, I will say this: People are going to be a lot less likely to fuck around with women if more of us start fighting back.
There’s your thought for the day.
