Observations at the UN Commission on the Status of Women

Some things are just too hard to write about. Today 5 extremely brave women spoke out about the abuses and discrimination and violence against women that is going on now in the Middle East. It is getting so much worse for women there. Going from dictators to what they have now, which should not be called democracy, had caused a backlash against women and basic human rights for women.

You have heard about women getting attacked recently in Tahrir square. It is worse than you have heard. We heard first hand accounts of women getting “mod attacked” as they participate in peaceful protest against the new government. A woman will be separated from others, cornered, pulled away from her friends, a mob takes her away – strips her, naked, she is tormented by the men, beaten, raped. One woman was torn from her vagina to her anus and left.
